If anyone is interested there is a BMW meet including Alpina at the Red Lion, Chelwood Gate, East Sussex, RH17 7DE. This is at 1230 on Sunday 28th Jan 18.

It is the pub next door to Munich Legends, but they are not the organiser, it is a guy from the BMW Car Club GB.

There is plenty of parking and the pub does food etc

The event was pretty good considering the weather was poor. I did take my B7, but being diverted down Sussex country lanes was not great and cleaning job the day after for me. The location was good, enough room and a fair few different cars.

Worth going when the weather has improved. Pub has wide range of food and was very busy.

Been to the Red lion pub many times as I used to work for ML!

I meant how did the meet go? Good turn out of cars?

And will it become a regular thing?
