When: May 10th, 6:00-9:00.

Where: Otto's BMW on Hunt Club.

What: Meet up and drive to Otto's BMW. Check our cars into the valet service, have a drink or two, and admire the new e90.

"This is a unique opportunity to witness the fifth generation of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan and celebrate its Canadian launch. The new BMW 7 Series and the BMW 5 Series featuring BMW's itelligent all-wheel drive technology xDrive will also be unveiled, proving yet again that no other automotive manufacturer is more committed to performance and innovation."

Yeah, somewhat.

I got my invite in the mail yesterday. I went to the new 5 series reveal last fall and I was surprised at how many people were there. There's lots of food and drinks...and they don't ask if you have an invitation.

Basically, you'll roll through Otto's drive thru service section. A photographer will snap photos of you and your BMW. You give the keys to the valet service and you go enjoy the cars, food, and drinks for free.

I got my invitation from Elite.
I have never bought anything there, but showed interest in the new sixer, maybe that's where they got my name. :confused:

I might just go to both events, at least a chance to meet up with you guys at Otto's.

EDITED. 1st time around I had a brain fart.

We're getting close enough to figure something out. How about we meet at 6:00 pm sharp @ the South Keys shopping centre. Specifically, we'll be meeting in the parking lot between Denny's and the Outback Steakhouse. The parade will be leaving at 6:30 pm, so be there or meet us at Ottos later in the evening. We'll go for a cruise prior to heading to Ottos.

Tuesday calls for 0% POP, sunny & high of 27!!! Yee-HAH!

Let's start the offical who's going list...

1. Brandon

unfortunaly I won't be able to meet up for the cruise, but I will be at Otto's. I told my Dad that I would head out to his place and pick him up and take him to the event. But hopefully I will see you guys there.

forgot my camera...so no pics from me. *angel*

But the show itself was pretty good...amazing food, open bar *drink* lots of really nice cars...Z8 was my favorite of the night. and of course the old school 2002ti in "M" colors.

As for the e90, didn't like it..Didn't like the styling at all. Interior was pretty nice, but a little sparse, and of course now "i" drive is an option when you get the nav package *thmbsdwn*

The only thing that really impressed me was the engineering that has gone into the new i6 engine with the magnesium/aluminium block
