It all started with a couple of posts on e90post.com (aka bimmerpost.com) in the Florida Chat thread.  There were talks of having a meet, but no one taking the lead.  What a better time for PSI to jump in and hold a meet at the peak of the hottest day of the year!  It was a snowball affect from the suggestion of meeting at PSI and it evolved from just a meet to inviting one of the best BMW tuners, Active Autowerke to join us in the festivities.

The preparations began, by flooding all the major BMW focused forums with details of the meet. Big thanks to 1clean335i (aka Chino) for really promoting the event! Swag was ordered, food was purchased and volunteers were recruited.  By the day of the meet we had over 90 confirmed Facebook RSVP’s with 60 or so maybes.  This was looking to be a huge meet!  We were excited!

The day arrives and we start having our first arrivals at 11am, the meet was to begin at 1pm!!  These two arrived from Tampa.

Setup continues and cars begin flowing in steadily around 12:3o and we easily had around 100 BMWs throughout the day!  We had an idea of how many we wanted to show up and everyone far exceeded our expectations.  It is unbelievable the enthusiasm in Florida for the ultimate driving machine.

Thanks again for everyone supporting the event and driving from Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville and everywhere in between!

Some favorite shots from various attendees of the meet!
