Roll call to ///M5's & ///M's in Portland Metro area

Greetings all. Some of you might have glanced over my previous posts several months ago with my move from SoCal to the Portland, OR area (Washougal, WA). I've been here a few months now and all settled in.

I want to reach out to the ///M community in the local Portland and surrounding areas to see who is where with the goal of meeting folks and organizing future meets, runs, get togethers, bbq's, movie nights, going out to the restaurants/breweries, you name it. Hope to hear from everyone. Thanks in advance.

Hiya Yaphet! I'm still in southern Oregon and always up for a good euro event! It's a 9 hr drive round trip from Medford to Portland... so maybe too far to go for a movie night or casual dinner, but if you're talking a Portland ECFest type event with overnight option or at least a half day of driving + eating (I can find my own lodging), I'd love to hear about it!

PS - I know your experience with PNW BMW has been less than ideal so far, but the admins are making some changes that will hopefully help. I hope you haven't given up on them completely.

PPSS - sick of the rain yet buddy?? :p

Not sure how many people even use m5board anymore? Seems many folks moved to Facebook pages like, ///M5 Republic and E39 M5 Owners Group. Might try posting there and referring them to this thread??

FB is great for quick response and short lived topics, but for threads like this, I'm still a big fan of the boards. Thanks for starting this thread!

I don't have an M5 (yet), but I'm in PDX too.

Currently have an 03 540i/6 M-Sport. But am looking to move into an e39 M5 as soon as the right one comes up.

Sweet. There is a PNW Winter Centralia Meet on Jan 17th. I'm planning on checking it out. I'm assuming there will be a caravan(s) but have yet to hear anything yet. PNW BMW has a Facebook page if you are on fb and details should be updated within that event.

I am up in Lakewood, WA. The M is down currently but will be ready soon.

Anyone able to teach me how to use DIS & INPA? I have everything set up and ready to go. I just don't want to mess anything up.

Thanks!

Most active folks I know for drives are either BMW CCA for more sedate luxury cruising (i.e. pay some fees) or PNW BMW for younger budget crowd (i.e. no cost drives). Or get involved with both and have all the drives you like.
