How big is the GTA f30post crowd?

I see a lot of posts from across canada but how big is the f30/BMW car enthusiast scene?
Or are all those bmw's you see on the road driven by housewives and financial guys?

Was going to a bunch of GTG's during my younger VW days but come spring would like to see what the local BMW scene is like.

Will it be More mature drivers or just yahoo's who add to the bad stereotype of a BMW driver. Would like to find the car enthusiast group who want to auto cross or who goes to driver training on a track.

LOL I am one of those "Financial Guys" but the BMW scene in Toronto is pretty good. The GTA has more general BMW events not specific to E90 or F30 per se with weekly/biweekly meets across the GTA in Mississauga, Downtown, Markham etc., Dyno Days, Cruises, BBQs etc.

Would suggest you join the BMW True North Facebook Group to keep up to date on the scene and upcoming events.

LOL, I'm one of those financial guys as well. Haven't been to a car meet since back when I had my old E90, but might be interested in an F30 meet, although I always seem to feel like an old guy at those things

There's a number of us 40+ enthusiasts so you won't feel like the old guy.

But with many more F30s in the GTA now, maybe we should have a couple of F30 specific meets once winter ends.

I'm on my 4th BMW and haven't been to a single meet. Consider myself an enthusiast, but can never find time. If it's not work, or the kid, it's time with friends. I think I should start attending this spring.

That's good to know. If there any F30 meets once this seemingly endless winter wraps up I'll try to attend

I am not a f30 loyalist. I can appreciate the older ones too.

Downtown TO here. With the amount of f30's I see around the core you gotta think there has to be a pretty decent sized community.

When we get closer to our 2 months of summer we should definitely plan a meet.
