This way we always know when the next meetup will be. This makes it less burdensome on everyone's schedule planning. You could create a reoccurring calendar entry with a reminder and call it a day.

I think it makes sense to have the location flexible. If we did all agree on a common location that would take the 'where' out of the equation.

I know 'some people' have complained about the early meetings. I won't name any names. Another option is (for example) on even months we meet early for coffee, on odd months we meet in the evening at a location with... more beverage options.

I am not sure what weekend Cars & Coffee is on but we probably shouldn't pick that weekend. Does anyone know how to create a poll post so we can get some votes?

Thoughts?

Yes great idea to have it be a set time/date every month so people can plan accordingly and make it when they can.

P.S. I didn't realize the place you are meeting at this Saturday is only a 15 min drive from my house, so I will try and stop by to say hello before you guys take off for the road trip.

That sounds good. Then I can adjust my travel and tennis schedule around that

Who is this person?! I think BMWs and Brews has a nice ring to it. Next month is odd so are we meeting for beers?! Say yes and I will be there. I vote 3 Nations Brewing in downtown Carrollton.

That brewery looks super cool and there is a great parking area under the highway which would look great in pics. I'm in for that for sure but might need a DD

I vote Happy Motoring changes his name to Happy Hour Motoring!

So question for the Dallas/Texas crowd. Where are you guys putting your tolltag? I just got my sticker and if I put it under the mirror in the center of the windshield, I have to put it really low to clear the "connected drive" set up and windshield pixels. Any other ideas? TIA

I put all of mine to the right of the mirror so it is “hidden” from me by the mirror
All of my cars had it in the same position.

While I don't recommend this, I keep all mine in the cup holder area or similar, and they've always been sensed. I use toll roads some of the time, and I sometimes pick up the sticker a bit. My account always caught it.
I find it a bit unsightly.

DFW performance shops

Hello gents. In the DFW area does anyone have any recommendations on a good performance shop for our M2's? I'm itching to get some suspension and performance mods.
