San Diego F10 Meet

Hello fellow F10'ers. I've noticed that there are a lot of people living in San Diego & I'm trying to set up an F10 meet at the Qualcomm Stadium on January 28 @ 10am. If anyone is interested, please reply to this thread so I can get a head count.

Thanks,
F10 HRE

Saturday morning isn't the best time for me, but I might be able to stop by a little bit. Why Qualcomm Stadium? Kind of a large location. I seriously doubt there's going to be that many of us. I hope there's not some big event going on that day.

My Le Mans Blue 2012 535i won't arrive until March, but I'd still like to attend... I'll drive either my Z3, K1200S or wife's 750i !

How are you getting a Le Mans Blue 535i? I thought that color was for the M5. Oh, and bring the bike!

M5 is Monte Carlo Blue. I'm paying extra for Le Mans Blue.

I love BMW blues. My 535i is Deep Sea Blue. The M3 is Laguna Seca Blue. Le Mans Blue was on the E90 for a while, right? I think I remember that color. Pretty close to my DSB, but probably a little lighter.

Will they have parking available? Every In-n-Out I've been to features a parking lot that's a zoo. But I haven't been to that one. Is it part of a larger shopping center? My favorite spot is in Mission Bay Park. I-5 to Clairemont Drive. Get off, turn right on Mission Bay Drive, turn left into the first parking lot. There's always plenty of parking in that lot.

Deep Sea Blue is a great color, but you can't order an F10 in DSB with the M Sport package, so it was a no go for me. M3 is available in Interlagos Blue (a little too "electric" for my tastes) and Le Mans Blue (perfect color). E46 M3 was available in Laguna Seca Blue, but not E90. LSB is a little too light, a little too "crayola" of a blue. I love BMW blues as well, but don't get me started: http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=546454

Gee, maybe you should re-schedule your birthday! JK I'm open to other dates. What does everyone think?

Wow, can't get DSB with M-Sport? That's dumb. I guess I would have chosen Carbon Black as a fallback. If I'm going to spend big money on a custom color, I've always wanted to see BMW Ruby Black in person!

Thanks fellas. Uummmm... how about the next day: Sunday the 29th? Yes... the parking lot will be open. It won't be busy at the time that we'd meet. I'm just trying to pick a location that's in the middle of SD.

Hey... maybe you guys can help me out. I'm trying to decide on which route to go on lowering my F10 550i M Sport with EDC. I notice a lot of people like the sporty/stiff/handling kind of ride. For me... I kinda like the soft/plush/floaty ride. Heck... that's why I bought an F10!!! So... I'm trying to lower my F10 and try to keep the stock-like ride. I've been reading a lot of threads and apparently there's a difference of outcomes when it comes to 550i's vs 535i's vs 528i's AND edc or non-edc. I've narrowed it down to H&R's, but for some reason... I need a little more reassurance that I'm making the right decision. Some people are posting in this forum that KWV2's drop hella low & have stock-like ride, and some say that KWV2's ride hella stiff. Then about 80% of people post on H&R's that they ride just like stock, and they don't like H&R's bcuz of this but like how low it goes on a 550i and for the price you pay for them. Then... some people are posting that ACS & RD's are the best. But they review that they are the best bcuz those springs provide more stiffness & a more planted feel to the road. So... If you guys can help me out, I'd really appreciate it.

@ LACSTER - I wish I woulda known. I'm Vegas right now for a lil R&R. When I get back, I'm already getting the H&R's installed. But, what's your honest review on them? Before I get them installed... :
