DFW/North Texas BMW's FB group

Hey everyone, I'm new to the board but not new to M cars. My name is Jeff, I live in Euless and work at Halliburton in Carrollton as a Mechanical Design engineer. Just wanted to intro myself and say that I'm sorry to have missed the DFW GTG recently. Awesome to see the pictures of the gathering!

I was thinking it would be easier to coordinate future GTG's if we were all members of some kind of social media group. So I have created a FB group called "North Texas BMW's". So far there are 22 people in the group and counting. My vision for it is that it would grow to a point where we can use it as a reference tool (for good indie shops, local parts and service providers...etc), post parts and vehicles for sale, and just post rad BMW finds around the city and on the interwebs.

That's kind of the rough sketch of the idea and I'd be more than happy to receive feedback from any of you on the idea. If you would, look up the group and join!

Cheers!

Welcome Jeff!

How about creating an FB page specifically for DFW/North Texas M5s?

Thanks Doc,

I could definitely see doing an exclusive M5 FB group. What would be the best way to spread the word?

Best way to spread the word, would be here on the forum. Also, there is a group of about 10-12 of us here in the DFW area (not sure how many on FB) but I'm sure they'd be interested in participating and joining the FB group!

Hi Jeff and Welcome!

Do you think there enough M5s in the DFW to justify an exclusive M5 North Texas FB Page?

so far there are like 3 or 4 FB bmw groups....(NTBC/North Texas Bimmer club, DFW Bimmers, the North Tejas BMWCCA Chapter and the newer Euro something)

each have a few E39/60/F10 M5s

Leonel Aka " Rico"
Current:
2001 E46 Tiag / Imola
Modified HPF Turbo M3
9XX RWHP on E85 & the Gen2 PTE 6870
