Cars and Croissants NJ

Met Fuddy this morning. Typically a low number of BMWs at this event.

Looks like C&C NJ has a permanent location now at the Hilton Parsippany on RT10.
It moved from Woodland Bakery on Shunpike Rd in Chatham to Chatham High School which has created some confusion and I have found that 6speedonline seems to have the latest updates as to where its going to be. Today with noone at Chatham High School I bumped into Fuddy also driving in circles, and drove up to the Hilton as I know they had gathered there a few times before.

Every other weekend, alternating Saturday and Sunday. Come on out, lets up the M attendance.

On a different note.

For those who pain away cleaning their 166M wheels. I recently had mine refinished, then removed them and waxed inside and out which makes for a smooth surface and the dust doesn't stick.

For weekly cleaning I think I have now found the best cleaning tools for these wheels:
-Lug nut brush and sponges from Griots Garage - Sponge gets in all the way to the back of the dish.
-Finger shaped wash mit from Pepboys - Very useful for getting in an around the spokes as well as in the indentation on each spoke.
-BMW wheel cleaner gel

Only thing I have not resolved now is how to stop the black water running out of the brakes as soon as the wheel is turned. I have tried leaving it until bone dry, but dust still blows out in a narrow line on the first drive.

If you haven't seen or tried I would highly suggest:
Heavy-Duty Wheel Cleaner, 35 Ounces - Griot's Garage

Bendable Wheel Brushes - Cleaning Tools - Wheels & Tires - Car Care - Griot's Garage

Been using the heavy duty cleaner for about a year and still love and I don't have the black as I spray into rotors. I do let dry first then drive short distance to dry breaks so they don]t rust. The brush I just picked-up and I no longer have to remove the wheels!

I was at the one about a month ago and was the only M in the lot. Fun to catch up at the next one if some of the rest of you will be there. I was suprised at the number of great cars in the lot. its a good way to spend a little time just looking
