Notice a pattern? It's the older/OG members and those with 'more to lose' (if you know what I mean) that understand. Hence my preference to drive with these guys - it's just safer and thus more fun knowing they won't a) dip into gravel b) do any stupid moves when ego takes over c) let you pass if they don't feel like going as quick (not that they couldn't).

A grey E90 M3 and I were recipients of some shoulder gravel on numerous occasions from the black E34. Hell, I got hit in the face/sunglasses with some small rocks that were kicked up and flew through my side windows. You can imagine what it did to my car's front end, lol. We tried to stay as far back as possible without holding up the pack - until it got ridiculous and both of us had to seize an opportunity to overtake.

Anyways. Where are all the camera guys?! So many people taking photos and so few have posted!

Huge thanks again to Jay for organizing everything. Can't wait for the next event.
at the gas station i saw the chunk taken out of youre bumper i got a couple chips from the cruise but nothing too bad.

Are you for real guys ? Do you think I didnít get any stone chips on my car at the cruise? There were many opportunities to pass me and those who wanted overtook me. Sorry that did not clean the road in front of me ,all I can say.

Please re-read Jon@Bimmersport's post. Specifically, the last paragraph.

I'm not doubting you got chips - some of the roads had more dirt/gravel. It's paint work - it can be fixed. While it's shitty, it happens. I can accept that reality.

The whole rant was about dipping into the shoulder and subsequently showering cars behind you with excessive clouds of dirt and stones; and not letting quicker cars pass which would have no detriment to your enjoyment of the day. :S

Lol yeah, sucks. A few hits were the size of a dime and straight to the metal/plastic. I was contemplating repainting it anyways, guess I'll definitely have to now.
