It’s been a long time since our local BMW club, BMW-SG, had a meetup (and an even longer time since i last attended one), but after a hiatus of many months (or even years), the meets are now starting up once again and while not yet near the scale of meets from yesteryear, it’s great to see the flames for freude am fahren being rekindled once again.
Hand-built, limited to 150 units and when first unveiled, costing almost twice as much as a regular M3. This M3 GTS is one rare puppy. Only a handful on our local roads and in eye-searing orange, is one car that’s hard to miss.
Bonus: Did you know that the internal code name for the M3 GTS was JÃgermeister? No less due to the M# GTS’ unique paint and the famous German beverage’s history of sponsoring motorsports. At least, that’s what BMW M’s chief says.
M6 Gran Coupe.
Fresh faced M2 also dropped by for an appearance.
And the M2’s predecessor, the mighty and so-very-collectible-now 1M Coupe.
But while the M-cars are really swell and everything, what really gets my Auto-otaku geek pulse racing are Alpinas. I just love these unique off-beat tuner specials. Alpinas have always managed to just “feel” a little bit more special don’t you think? Even with the M-cars around
This green B4 Bi-Turbo coupe was just stunning.
Even Momo thinks so.
Another Buchloe special! Love the signature Alpina wheels.
Great looking 5er Touring too!
i3 made a quiet appearance.
While i would loved to have stayed longer, other commitments (and a quickly greying sky) on a Sunday morning meant i had to make my leave early. Here’s to more BMW meets happening and maybe one day, we will be able to bring back the crazy meetup numbers once again!
