Bimmercruise is proud to announce our 5th annual BMW-cruise & show/shine on Sunday July 17th, 2005. The location is the same park as last year (Totoredaca park in Mississauga). Thankfully, the weather will be warmer and hopefully more cooperative this time around. Spectator admission is free once again (Parking $5) and show cars willing to compete for prizes and/or trophies will be charged $20 (more classes this year). Proceeds from the event go to MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) Halton Peel Chapter. Park opens @12noon (cruise begins @11am see site for details closer to event date), trophy ceremony scheduled for 4pm. BBQ lunch, drinks, live DJ, warm weather and many vendor sales/exhibits are some of the other things to look forward to. Hope to see everyone there!

P.S. Cruise details will be announced next week (and posted on the site)

So, lets see if I got this right, $20 to register your car, can you do that the day of? Is it $5.00 just to park nearby or to still park your Bimmer along with all the others? How does that work?

$20 for BMW show cars that want to compete for prizes and trophies. $5 parking for everyone else... BUT, non-competing BMW's will be parked near the show cars (not mixed with them, too many non-competing people leave early). non-BMW parking is seperate.

anyone in the Toronto area: I need to find a Rear Lower Control Arm for an e36 M3 urgently. I have just days left for this event and i dont want to miss out!

by the way, Randy did you leave me some flyers on my Tool box this past wednesday?

EMPOWERD
07-11-2005, 01:41 AM
Yeah, that was me. I came over in hope you were there to shoot over and see some Ferrari's. I guess it didn't really matter since you saw much nicer stuff on Thurs. I'll keep an eye out for the control arm.

... my car is far from luxury.. it'd probably win the riced out class. (don't mind the sig, those pics are from many many years ago.)

Not sure where the meet points are... still waiting for Randy to update the thread. I'll be bringing my vid cam, just need to know how to give my footage tape to at the end of the day.

That sucks for the weather, it's the left over from the storm that hit the southern US. Hopefully change, still more then 3 mins away in which they can't predict let alone 4-5 days.

yes, elraton16 is Carlos.

I don't seem to have any luck with BimmerCruise weather eh? Hope it turns around for the better. According to this weather chart (http://weather.canoe.ca/Weather/CityMississaugaON.html) it's only 40% pop.

I'll ask Randy if he's have that class next year. :D

I just got off the phone with a mechanic in Portland Oregon. He rebuilt a Dinan 3.9l stroker in an E28 M5 that a customer brought in. When he took it apart, he found that the flywheel had the reference pin in the wrong position, so the timing 15 degrees advanced. Dinan tried to fix the problem with a different version of their stroker chip, with retarded timing. That modified chip never ran well and Dinan said they couldn't fix it. So who did he call? He says the new chip I sent for that stroker is working really well.
