At the moment the weather doesn't look good for Saturday, but it's far too early to make that call for sure. I do know that the CCA HQ grass field is a nightmare in the wet as the 50th O'fest 2019 final night event it rained, and I was fortunate that I live 20min away and I had brought the E91 that night with all-season (PSAS3+) tires on it. It was still a harrowing ordeal to get out of the muck without being towed...really glad I made the decision to drive the beater that night (the huge grass field slopes down to a lake).

One drive I really enjoy locally is highway 276 up to Cesar's Head from the Greenville side (from highway 11). It goes from 1165ft elevation at highway 11 to 3159ft at Cesars Head State Park at the top over ~5-6 miles of road. It has short sections of two upbound lanes to allow you to get around slow traffic in many areas, and the very tight uphill switchbacks are a blast. I just drove it Friday in fact (about 25 min from here in north Greenville county).

None of the mountain drives are much fun on crowded weekend days, especially now when everyone seems to be getting out.

I hope the weather holds and Saturday turns out nice. It would great to meet up with everyone.

I'm like to sign to sign up and come down of the weather is nice. Is there something wrong with the BMWCCA registration site? I've tried to join for the past two weeks and when I submit my information I get the following:

I hope the weather holds as well!!

Thanks for the advice on the drive CSBM5, I've taken 276 on that route (then went up through the Pisgah Forest and on to Waynesville on the way back from PCD back in 2015. I drove some of it last August, again after PCD. It was a fun drive both times.

I was hoping the Blue Ridge Parkway would be open, but it looks like it's still mostly closed (at least it was the other day when I looked...)

Keep hoping this front that's going to hang around late week through Saturday gets swept along somehow faster: https://www.wunderground.com/forecast/us/sc/greer

Last Saturday was perfect here - 60F, dew points in the low 20s!, 100% sun. Similarly this week we're having perfect weather and then next week looks great too. We've still got time though for Saturday's forecast to change, but that door is closing.

The rain held off for Saturday's C&C and so glad it did! It was an incredible weekend as there were some awesome cars on field. BMWNA brought over several vehicles to display like the pre-production prototypes of the 1M and Lime Rock E92 M3, Neiman Marcus X5, Signal Green (?) M8C, G80/G82 M3/M4, and a few others. All cars were parked by chassis which was pretty cool to see the E30 M3s and a few other nicely modded cars.

There's plenty of pics/videos floating out there, so post your favorites here if you like.

My highlight of the weekend was driving the BMWNA cars back to the 'secret warehouse'... We weren't allowed to take any pics and they tried to push us out of there pretty quickly, but the eye candy was stunning. So many prototypes, historic race cars, pre-war motorcycles, first/last builds, it was absolutely ridiculous! This downlow collection at the 'secret warehouse' could easily make it the best BMW museum in the world. Hopefully I'll get to see it again in my lifetime

"Neiman Marcus" X5? Interesting.

Any glimpses in the "secret warehouse" of the X8?

"BMW will produce only 50 of its 2001 model year Sports Activity Vehicles with the exclusive impala brown metallic exterior color. Luxury and performance are the focus for the "exclusive edition" vehicle, which can be reserved only through the premium catalog.

Customers who reserve the "exclusive edition" X5 through the much-anticipated Neiman Marcus Christmas Book will also be given the opportunity to participate in a three-day, two-night experience starting at BMW's new Performance Center
in Spartanburg, S.C. There, "exclusive edition" X5 purchasers will be able to hone their driving skills in a half-day, high performance driving program on a course designed expressly for driving instruction. During this program, drivers will receive one-on-one instruction from professional drivers who help them to develop, train and test their reflexes in everyday and emergency driving situations.

The thrill continues with a drive in the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains, where the new owners can experience an X5 on the beautiful winding roads and take in the mountain air. The next day, the trip continues with a special visit to the Biltmore estate.

The manufacturer's suggested retail price of this special X5 is listed at $57,995 in the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. (The price includes shipping and handling and excludes taxes, license, registration and dealer-installed options.) As an added bonus, BMW will make a $1,000 contribution in the name of each vehicle purchaser to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation."

I didn't get a chance to look around the entire warehouse since they were trying to get us out of there as fast as possible. The vast majority were special production cars, historic vehicles, and one-offs, but no pre-production vehicles with camo.
