Hi there guys.

If any of you E36'ers would like to meet up one Sunday a month near Twickenham rugby stadium, (just off the A316, South West London, Surrey border area), we could make a day of it and help each other out with any small maintenance jobs and maybe go for a cruise around the Surrey countryside and a bite to eat, and maybe make a regular thing out of it! And if you fancy having a tinker, want to lend some support, have a cruise, have some banter, and enjoy your car, and you don't have an E36, come along too! There's nothing like actually doing things yourself and that's how you learn! This is something for enthusiasts who would like to get to know their car a bit more intimately!

_
* My Experience:

I am good with belts, hoses, cooling system, and bleeding the e36, (thanks boostist! he he he). I have resoldered a dry solder joint on a relay and mended my electric windows.
_
*My Goals

I have an E36 320i w/Automatic transmission. I would like to do an oil change, replace back wheel bearings, do a service II, tinker around and tune her up. What are your goals?
_
* Equipment

I have a 3/4" drive torque wrench, hex bolts, a 12 Litre oil drain pan, a power bar, a reasonable socket set, wrenches and other bits and pieces! I have a good Bentley manual and a Haynes. There's off road parking for a couple of cars. And parking on the kerbside that's without restrictions! I like working on something new and I like a challenge, and I love to tinker on cars. I can even throw in a few cups of hot tea!
_
* Willing to lend a hand

If you're around, this is a great opportunity to tinker around, learn more about cars with people who care and are enthusiastic, get your hands dirty and have a meetup!!! If you like the sound of this, then this is for you. I can host it near me and we can take turns hosting it elsewhere if you like!

Reply to this thread and/or PM and we can sort something out. Let us know what you can do, if you're prepared to get your hands dirty, and what car you have, what tools you have and the more the merrier!

Thanks for the bump RYM! Hey dkdriver, will add you to the list, instant message me for any details and let me know what your aims/goals are for this meet/your car/you! Can possibly organise a meet for the last Saturday of the month. That would be the 31st Jan 2009. If anyone else would be interested in coming along, then reply to this post or instant message me and I will give you further details and we can plan it together!

Happy new year everybody.

sent you a pm metroreq. sunday looks like it might be either starting around 130pm or 330pm depending on how popular the event is, and how many people are coming. i am just mailing out to a few other guys. let me know if you can come for 130pm or 330pm. if anyone else wants to come along let me know either in this thread or PM ..

where are you coming from? leave me your mobile number too if you can in pm so i can help you find us!

if you send me a pm let us know what bmw model/e36 do you have? also what have you worked on in the past with your car and do you have any issues with your car at the moment? sunday should be a fun time; we can have a good laugh and grab some videos on youtube and maybe up them as well!

best,

thanks to everyone who showed up at the last meet! we had an ace time cruising around and socialising, and talking lots about our cars and the odd tinkering! some good friendships were made.

to those who couldn't attend, don't worry! another event coming up on the last sunday of the month! message for details!

yours,

xpress :)

PS and remember, whatever your goal, you can do it, if you put your mind to it!

:p

hi guys, ice is back with a brand new invention! well not quite .. :D

thanks guys for your interest and enthusiasm, it's up to us guys to establish the south west meet and make it bigger and better!

as you know we are currently doing a meet at the last sunday of every month.

however, in february it's a funny month since it's 28 days, so i am working that day but i thought how about a few of us meet up for a drink at a nice surrey pub say 7/7:30pm on sunday, can hang out for a couple/few hours and catch up with some new ppl and old faces, (mine included) :p

let me know if you think this is a good idea.

cheers!
