This year, the NI-BMW Motor Show was back after a 1 year gap, and was stacking up to be the biggest yet, and with the weather we got on the day, it was the biggest and best yet!
After an early morning start, the steady stream of cars began to fill up each section of the carpark nicely, from old skool 2002's right up to the latest E92 M3's and lots in between!
With such a variety of cars on display, both standard and modified, there was something to put a smile on everyone's face! And with a nearby burger van, ice cream van and coffee van, there was no need to leave for food!
ProCar, one of NI-BMW's new sponsors, was there on the day with a wide range of cleaning products on hand for those looking to stock up or just try something new
Ellis Auto Parts from Carrickfergus also turnt up on the day to promote the wide range of Meguiars products
The charity this year was the RLNI, which we managed to raise an amazing £1250! So thank you to all those who paid in and chucked their loose change in the buckets!
And another thank you to Nigel from GTI-NI, Raymond & Christine from NI-Vaux, Andy from NI-Fords, and Tom from BMW Classics Ireland for doing the very difficult job of judging each category they were given
A final thank you goes to our sponsors,
Ironside Trophies who did all the trophies which looked amazing!
JKC BMW of Coleraine for sponsoring the club and donating a model F10 M5 for "Best M" (which was won by an E30 M3 Evo Sport II)
Country Garage BMW of Ballymena for also sponsoring the club and donating a model F10 M5 for "Car of Show" (Which was won by David's White Alpina 2002)
CC Automotive for continuing to sponsor the club and sponsored "Best E36/E46/E90" (won by Wayne D with his Le Mans Blue E90 M Sport)
Campsie Motor Factors/Gardiner Motaquip who sponsored "Best E39/E60" which was won by the Blue E60 M5 owned by Mark
German Motor Works
And finally, Kerr's Tyres
With the show season coming to an end, and many of the cars soon to be tucked away for a winter hibernation we'll be planning the 2013 NI-BMW show, with a few other events planned for both this year and next year before the show
Many thanks to RMS member gav525 for the photos and Aidan316i from the BMW club for the words.
