Naperville, IL Meet

It looks like there is going to be a Cars and Coffee type event happening on Sunday April 1st in Naperville, IL

I know of several guys planning on attending this event, a BMW's a couple AMGs and a few Audi guys. Lets try to get some more BMWs to represent. Looks like a great way to celebrate winters end. Glad to see some events being hosted out in the far west burbs, I get sick of having to travel to north, far north and the city all the time.

I'll be more than happy to attend it, it should be a nice ride from Schaumburg to Naperville, hopefully weather will cooperate. Thanks for the info.

Ya weather can be questionable in early April, as you know it could be 80 and sunny or 30 and snowing. I Just hope we dont have to pay the price for this warm winter we have been experiencing come April.

There are going to be a bunch of MB/AMG's at this event so try to spread the word to as many other BMW owners as possible.

"I Just hope we dont have to pay the price for this warm winter we have been experiencing come April."

yeah, this is extraordinary...and I remember they predicted this winter to be harsh and miserable....I probably put more miles this winter than ever before (with summer tires still on).
no problem, I'll spread the word.

I'm kinda new to the Z4 forums so I don't know too many local guys with Z4's/ I PMed one guy here on ZPost that lives in Naperville and sent him a link and I have one neighbor with a Z4 M Coupe that is attending. Looks like there are a handful of M3 and M5s attendng as well.

I didn't realize there was a "Meets" calander on this forum, I went ahead and added this event to the calander.

If it's rain, salt and snow free most likely I'll make the schlep out from the city (lord knows what time I'll need to get up, ha) and be there to represent the Zs. Added to my calendar

You have a month to get it out of storage and running. Mine is still undergoing some finishing touches on my winter mod project. Hope you can make it in either car.

O lol. Well just to avoid any confusion it would just be my e86... my boyfriend drives an e90 m3.

I'm not that worried about weather my wheels aren't due in until April and I'm just assuming that means end of April... So I'll still have my stock wheels and suspension.

Even if the weather is junk we should plan to go in dailys anyways. It's a good way to kick off spring and get some coffee and get to know each other.

What kind of help do you need? I probably will not be of much help if you are looking for baseline numbers since my car is a 3.0 non M but my neighbor has a bone stock Z4MC. There are 3 shops here in Naperville with Dynos(2 Dynojet and a Mustang). I can talk to one of the shops, its about 2 miles from the meet location to see about arranging some dyno time after the meet, let me know.
