First and foremost, hats off to all who attended the Mfest 2008 ... although there were some bumps/ boulders:hihi: along the road in getting this event to take off...We would not trade it for anything and believe me there were times that we almost gave up but it is all because of you guys that made us strong and motivated us to do this event...to all those who helped (I will not name names as I might forget one and he'll be pissed:D) in any way shape or form I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart :imnotworthy:...alot of people suggested that I needed to delegate more but since this is the first year it would be hard to do as alot the guys didn't know what to expect or were to really help... (but next year would be different as I will be delegating more as the guys interested on helping out have a clear idea on what we want to accomplish about this event) there were times were I was really stressed out and i do apologize for that :imnotworthy: as i can hardly sit ,rest, eat and my gf got really sick thru out the Mfest:crying: ...as i have said in my speech "this event was made by an enthusiast for the enthusiast" and we would like to keep it that way... the group drives were really "INSANE" i still get goose bumps just thinking about it, there were times we had to slow down to mere minimum were even trucks would pass us:haha: but we kept our cool as we patiently awaited the guys who were lagging behind (unselfish)...The "Camaraderie" was in the air the moment we started Mfest and grew even bigger the time we all saw each other for the first time or for a long time...the best part was when you see all the guys faces smiling and giving each other a thumbs up...We never cared who has the most expensive, fastest or nicest car out there instead we appreciated and respected each and every car that was there at the event as we all know as "enthusiast" how much time and effort (not to mention $$$) that was put on...on these amazing cars, I for one will say this, all the cars there were extremely well thought and as i've said before nothing was left for our imagination...I can only hope that we can make this event grow and be able to bring something fresh every year...to the sponsors I thank you for your trust on making this event happen:imnotworthy:...I am very proud of the young bloods who showed alot of maturity on this event:applause::applause::applause: to the not so young :hihi: thank you for coming out and having a great time with us...We will definitely fine tune this event as we have a very good foundation for this year and hope to see you all next year...Again i thank you all and for those who miss it this year? better be ready for next year as it will be another surprise event...

if it's possible to start posting /transfer all pics in here so we can have an album set...

Chris, that wouldn't be a problem. I'm sure you probably don't have a clue who I am, but I actually introduced myself to you over at eurotech. You seemed sort of confused when I came up and talked to you and at the same time you were soo busy that you had to take care of stuffs and left in a hurry. Much prop's to you for making this wonderful event happen. And to the rest of the participants and those I met, you guys are awesome!!

I have ton's of picture's but I surely don't want to post one by one. Just send me your email and i'll forward you the pictures if you dont mind. Also when can we expect the DVD of the //M-Fest drive and so forth? I'm definitely buying one. Needless to say, I and a few buddy's of mine will definitely make this a yearly event. This will be the 2nd biggest euro-car show next to bimmerfest for sure. Who know's maybe even bigger in the years to come. Also, if the turn out was already this huge for the first event ever imagine what next year or the year after that would be like? Totally insane.

Aren't the M3's at dealers as demo cars? Are the demo's only manual or DSG?
