Hey guys I know everyone loves seeing the M-3 the most at the car shows and its quite understandable, but what other BMW's do you guys like seeing? And what are the modifications you look forward to seeing on them the most?

E30's or even cooler a pre 93 5er with M5 V8 motors in them

I like to see true race BMWs and rare limited production cars like Z1 M1 etc. If I need to look at Hondas I can walk up the street to blockbuster video. A bunch of guys must work there cause there's always a few parked outside.

Well I would like to see two of each One original and one highly modified side by side (wouldn't that be sweet!). Now these are my all time favorites and if I were filthy stinking rich have them in my garage too...

I would like to see ANY BMW's at shows...but not many people bring them out:confused: Why cant BMW enthusiasts be a but more like the Honda drivers...I they bring nearly stock Civics with hubcaps why cant you guys bring some of your amazing rides out to shows! I like to enter my car as much as I can, even if its not the best, but just beeing there I feel like I'm making my contribution...Imagine if next year we get 50+ Bimmers lined up at Darknights!!!!:D :D :D

50 Cars. with over 1,000 members we should be able to get at least 100 BMW's out in true force.


Eurostyle, should we make this a mission to get as many cars out next year for Darknights???

Sure we can! If we can gather 150+ cars for Bimmer cruize why cant we bring more then 2-3 bummers at other shows!!! If we get our S#%t together we can even get the "Best team" award!!!

Count me in, even if my car is not the nicest one there, I can still put an "Under constrution" Sticker on it, and let's make maxBimmer the best team, best ride, and best display out there


Lets take back this Import car scene!!!!!*uzi* ( from the Honda world)

The cons are very few; you have to pay $40-50-60 to register and you are without your car for a weekend (in most cases). The pros are; you get to see the show with frends for cheap, see nice cars, see NICE girls, win awards, have your car in magazines, have people compliment your car, have people take pictures with your car, and much more!!!

What I'd like to see is E30's and older. Especially pre-war era cars since I've only ever seen any in museums.

The trouble with shows is that you spend $30 or more to park your car, so ignorant people who don't even have a car can walk around and pick out it's faults and what they dislike about it. Usually they don't know what they are talking about anyway. If you have a nice car it will get attention everytime you take it out, so I don't feel a need to show it off.

My BMW is a daily driver, so I'd never show it. But I also have a muscle car, and most people can't tell a Pontiac from a Chevy. They just come to look at the pretty colors.

I like to see any bimmer that has had a lot of time put into it....whether it is restoration, or any engine and body modification.
Turbos and superchargers always get me excited

OH hell I can't wait until spring comes. As soon as I get the body kit I want and grab some new rims, I'll be bringing my Orange e-30 to every car show that I can. Hell I want everyone to know my car and what better way to do it?
