DiSTiNCTiVE iMAGE Spring Event May 3rd 2008 - Trenton, NJ

Post by pinkfl2511 » Mon Apr 07, 2008 4:09 am

For those of you who do not know what this event is, here is a brief description. Basically we have a meet & greet for about 1 1/2 - 2 hours at the waterfront. Then, we take about a 1 - 1 1/2 hour cruise up the delaware river on route 29 north which is very scenic. Then we cross over into PA and take route 32 south which is also very scenic and very curvy. During our drive in PA we pass through a town called New Hope, and there is always a ton of people there. So, when passing in there it's like a car show for them. It's pretty cool watching everyone's heads turn and see the long line of BMW's coming down the road. Anyway, after that we connect to Taylorsville road which takes us to I-95 south and then to Oxford Valley Mall. Once we get to Oxford Valley Mall we park at Macy's and wait for everyone to arrive. Then we eat at either the mall, TGIFridays or Bertucci's whichever you like. Throughout the day there are tons of pictures and video being taken as well. In case you were wondering, your car can be bone stock to heavily modified. It doesn't matter as long as you love BMW's. So, if this sounds of interest to you, we all would love to see you there! Here are some links to videos from previous meets.

Thanks to Steve "Bsaint" for those videos

It's time again for our 3rd event. I would be really great if we could break the 200 car mark. Anyway, If you are interested let me know, and I will add your name to my main list. I will update the list once a week. The date is May 3rd, with a rain date of May 24th. Hope to see everyone there, and I look forward to meeting new faces!

110 so far with guests included. Not bad, but usually only 50% show. Come on, let make this big again!
I am consulting with my friend from up in PA about some really good back roads to go on in the middle of the cruise.
By the way the new Rain date is May 25th which is a Sunday. Anyway, let's get more people! Tell everyone! Hope to see you there!

We are only 2 weeks away now! Come on, this is going to be a great event! SIGN UP! :D Anyway,
I can't wait. I will be posting directions and the final cruise route next weekend. I am surprised
that there aren't any cruise / caravan threads yet. You guys should think about caravanning. Also,
where the heck are the new 1 series and new M3 owners! Let's go show those new cars off! It's
a lot of fun. Don't forget, the new rain date is Sunday May 25th. Anyway, If you need anymore
information, don't hesitate to ask. Thanks!
