    Not to sound whiny, but where was this posted? It's not on the calendar, this is the first post that I've seen about it and it's a post announcing that registration is closed.

    Hard to sign up if you don't know about it.

    Had a blast

    Although I did nothing on my car, it was great meeting people with similar interests in BMW and cars in general (Fiance is tired of anything BMW, had to to deal with ED process over the last year). Had a great time and will definitely attend more DIYs even it it is to hold pass someone a tool. LOL

    CCC was great again

    Timmy, Danny, Derek, Matt and the rest of the crew at Convenience Car Care were great. Can't wait for the next one.

    Cool

    What's left to be said, but Wow, what an awesome staff, an awesome shop and an awesome owner. Convenience Car Car is one of the best facilities because they earnestly, sincerely care about their customers and love their local club. I personally love to be in a place where I don't feel like I'm in the way and everytime I step into Convenience I feel like I'm right at home. It may be 60 miles away but my bimmer sure loves the trip because Sally Sue knows that the folks at CCC truely appreciate The National Capital Chapter and all of it's members. Just my two and a half cents worth. Happy Motoring...

    CCC cares about our club

    I had a chance to replace my rear wheel bearings on my E30 thanks to Convenience Care Care staff. CCC's Danny provided guidance and assistance as needed. Also thanks to fellow NCC member, William Baughman, for his assistance in getting my E30 put back together with plenty of time left to make the Annual Holiday Party and Membership Meeting.
