  1. I'm also arriving just in time for the driver's meeting, but will continue through BBQ, and can't miss those fantastic cupcakes at Sweets!
  2. ( Videos are moving photography, right?) Mark you calendar for Nov 22... There are some teaser videos at these links. https://www.smithsonianchannel.com/videos/this-is-how-mini-jcw-turbo-engines-are-built/60865?an=culture https://www.smithsonianchannel.com/videos/why-mini-jcw-cars-are-so-similar-to-go-karts/60847?an=culture
  3. Nice turnout and great to see everyone! I think we all enjoyed the location. @wyretrip Sorry I took off too early before you could see the mod! Next time... I missed a few of the MINIs in attendance by not going outside earlier to take photos
  4. After seeing and hearing about the simple install by @Coopah, I had to get one of these Cravenspeed auto shift knobs: Totally agree about the great feel and sitting at a perfect height relative to the center arm rest!
  5. The private dining room is set aside for us under “DC Minis” There’s some sort of beer tasting event going on tonight, so no guarantee of a big enough table in the main dining area.

  8. BendersMINI - caesar salad.
  9. I really enjoyed this run last year - especially the food at the end! [ Unfortunately, I can't make it this year due a packed travel schedule in Aug... ]
  10. That's a great improvement over the stock auto "shifter." Thanks for posting this, as I've been wondering if the install was as easy as the description made it seem. When I saw this on Cravenspeed's email a little while back I didn't quite understand how it's getting around the usual button press needed to move the selector. Do you just lift/push up the knob and move it to the selection you want?
  11. Hey Corey, no problem! The place is certainly spread out. I did run into Rey & Co, too, as they were checking out their next SUV Certainly a less diverse set of vehicles this year. Crowd seemed a bit smaller, too. Nevertheless, entertaining to walk around and see some of the new stuff.
  12. Sorry for missing you - didn't check the website after starting to walk around the cars!
  13. If the updated show website is correct, it looks like MINI will have a display, but BMW will not. That seems unusual for one without the other, but it would also seem a bit disappointing for MINI to skip a show in a major urban market where a healthy number of their cars are sold (or why else would there be so many dealerships here?) Anyway... I'm sure it'll be relatively packed, but if the layout is anything like last year's then we may be able to find each other inside the entryway around the ticket sales (even if you're buying your tix ahead of time). I realize that we probably all want to wander at different paces and in different directions, but I'll offer the tentative plan that we meet in the main entryway lobby around 11, then try to find the MINIs (though they don't show up on the online floor display map... not a good sign). From there, we can all see the show in whatever manner we wish... Cheers, Stephen (910.382.4817)
