Largest California G8x Meetup to date ///2.12.22

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
We had a great gathering this past weekend with 9 G8x owners showing up to show off their builds. We came from all corners of the Bay Area: from the north in Marin County, from the east in the Sacramento area, and from as far south as San Jose. We all met in San Ramon, CA, for a first time meet and greet and gawked at each other's rides.

The terrific, and yet perhaps most obvious thing with these kinds of meetups: a shared enthusiasm for the ///M brand bringing interesting people together! These cars are fantastically engineered and sculpted machines that we all have the privilege of owning and driving. Such a cool thing for us all to share that together.

The meetup's goal was to meet face to face and then take a cruise around the beautiful SF Bay Area and get some lunch in Sausalito. Let's just say...we went about 16 or so miles until a lot of us were lost(!). Blame the power of the ///M gas pedal! (Note: guys, we gotta do better at sticking together next time. ��)

Ultimately, most of us ended up getting lunch together and learned a bit more about who's behind those amazing wheels. A damn good get together indeed and I think we can all agree we made some new friends.

In attendance were some great builds from the following folks (in alphabetical order):

Thanks for pointing that out! I didn't have the bimmerpost app but just downloaded it and saw the issue. After some sleuthing I figured out the Instagram links were breaking the page. Weird. Just corrected it and added more images.

I used to hit meets all the time but that ship has sailed as of late...

But with the G8X; I think its cool since I saw more G8X's here than I do in real life even in the OC.
