no one has really showed up the last couple of times ( me included) due to RL issues; BUT!

I'd be more than willing to start again in June

Yeah I know what you mean about RL issues. Stuff happens.

I'm not very active on these boards but I set up a subscription to this thread so I'll keep up if anything is happening.

Not sure which Mike you are referring to but this Mike thought the group changed it back to Sundays, which was one of the reasons I wasn't there anymore. Saturdays would be better for me but this week my fire will be on a trip with my MINI so it's a no go for me this time.

this says Saturdays, I believe the FB page says Sundays (not sure, I don't FB); I'll be there Saturday if I get off of work at a decent hour.

Yeah good meeting you too. Thanks for all the info. Lets get a couple more people to come next month and we can grab a beer and talk cars.

After seeing your car I think I do want to lower mine but not too much. I don't want to **** up the bumper on the mini like I did on my E46.

New guy in town

Hey guys. I'm in town from Michigan and will be here for the rest of the year.
I've been doing quite a bit of maintenance over the last month or so and would love to meet up and kick tires.

I'm also looking for a shop familiar with the R53 for some work. I need lower control arm bushings installed and don't have much here in the way of tools.

Welcome! if you need a shop locally try "Total MINI and BMW" (843-552-5550) on Cross County Rd. ; Chadtoolio on here is the owner, (ex Hendrick MINI tech for many years before opening his own shop) great guy, great work done.

Was thinking about seeing if anyone wanted to meet at the car show this weekend (I'll get last Sat paper and get the time/place) just to check a few things out.

there's a big (30+cars already signed up) BMW meet Sunday (26th) under the Ravenel Bridge (Mt. Pleasant side) at noon. Gonna try and make it to that, looks like its very informal; meet there, hangout and BS for a bit, then cruise to Hooters in N Charleston about 1 pm.

any ideas where for lunch?

think I'm gonna try and get up and go to the Cars&Coffee at the Atlanta Bread Co.in Mt Pleasant. It's at 0800 so it's iffy, lol. I went a couple of weeks ago and there were some really nice cars there, Ferrari 512, Aston DB6, Maz Ghibli, Shelby Cobra, GT40 all showed up, only one other MINI besides me, some newer BMWs, a few Mustangs.... nice selection for the gearheads

Is that at 0800 today? Is there a link to more details somewhere?

Since we're meeting at Tanger we can go to Buffalo Wild Wings. I still have no other plans so I should be at Dunkin Donuts at 1 PM.

The other meet would be nice but I probably won't make it. It's too early for me on a weekend.
