I have restructured the tour and we now can handle 10-12 more cars (20 more members). There will be a breakfast at Northwest BMW and then a great day. Register on the web site and then call me immediately. 410-602-0175

...were conspiring to keep me from the tour, but all is not lost. Even though the clutch went out on my 1992 325i, and then the sunroof would'nt close on my 1988 ///M6 and the Aux fan died on my 1995 ///M3 causing it to overheat in traffic when the A/C was on... I will be there.

Bavarian Autoparts overnighted a new Aux fan and that fixed the ///M3 up for action. During the subsequent test run tonight (from Lexington Park to Point Lookout) the molding under the front bumper attempted to liberate itself from the car... After struggling to free the offending piece of large black plastic I stopped to get a bite to eat... upon my return to the M3 I was rewarded by a fresh Check Engine light, the likes of which I have never seen (on this car anyway). As I approached my home, angered and tired, the Gods smiled upon me and the Check Engine light disappeared. All is well... for now.

Bob, I want to commend you on pulling this tour off. We had a great time and everything fell into place as planned. Northwest BMW was great and their hospitailty/service was outstanding. They reset my TPMS light when I wasn't looking after it came on somehow on my way up there. The drive was great, but next time I'm gonna hit some of those winding roads a little harder :) Lunch was excellent BTW.

Now the most important question...where's the pics?

Thanks for the kind note. We are still recovering from Saturday - and then the trip to Allentown for the Sunday 5:30AM Balloon Ride. But that's another tale.

Most will be from other friends on the tour. For some reason, I did not have much time to take photos.

Doug has already sent me two that I will post in the Gallery.

Any idea how MANY did not follow the Instruction that said "LEFT on Glen Falls Road at Mt. Gilead Church - NOTE: Very easy to miss". And - did they see the Baltimore County Police car that was posted there and actually started after them to bring them back?

Anyone else have photos?

I must agree wholeheartedly with Pseto. Bob you are a Logistical genius! Everything about the tour was perfect from weather, to the dealership, to the winding roads and scenery to the great food (even for the latecomers at Fairfield Inn) to the awesome end at the Jazz concert/Winery. Cheers to you, Zack, Eric, and everyone who made it a perfect day. The only thing I was missing was my other half who would have helped tremendously with the navigation duties.:biggrin: It is ok however, because she is already on board and ready for the November tour! Thanks a million Bob! You are a Gentleman and a Scholar!

I am certainly late in replying, been too busy with that work thing. Sandra and I wanted to thank Bob and Miriam for a very nice day, we really enjoyed our first outing with the club. We hope to be able to make many more. Thanks also to all the people we didn't meet or know of that worked to put this together. NW BMW was great! Thanks Zack too, it was nice meeting and speaking with Orlando, Rich, Zack (fellow 325i owner!) and their significant others at our table at the Fairield Inn.

I have some pictures I'm going to try and upload as well.

Louis :)
