As the head judge for The First Episode, I'd like to thank all the competitors for coming out to the show... without you there would be nothing. I know some of you don't agree with the final results but there is a good explaination for it. As a car show competitor myself, I tried my best to make this one as unbiased and fair as possible. During the show I used a score sheet (exclusive to Euros) to mark all the cars. Points were awarded for cleanliness, presentation, and ideas.... BUT, majority of the points were awarded to the amount of custom work and "bolt ons" the car had - stereo systems included. Only so many points could be accumulated by a clean, relatively stock car while other (maybe dirtier) cars did accel with larger wheels and non-factory stereos. If I did infact "rig" the results, than Jeremy would have won best E30 wild.... but after the points were added up, Teamworx came out on top - simple as that. I'm sorry to disappoint maX members Bimmersport, Richie Rich and others that didn't get what they had hoped for (especially Bill Melbourne) but I honestly tried to keep it neutral.

I guess cars with overspray paintjobs are award winners ??

Where is the category for refinement ?

Charlie's car was one of the most refined/cleanest/rarest cars there,barr none.....

Randy -

It was a great show, hopefully next year there will be more cars and spectators.

I personally did not like the Hamann M Roadster, but the results were objective, not subjective. This is how a show should be run.

Just my $0.02.

So when is the next show (besides Import Fest)?

Thanks for the info!

The sig was made by a friend. I gave him a bunch of pics and he put it together for me. I have virtually no Pshop skills.

The ///M coupe was a little over the top for me. I like BMW's that aren't too heavily modded. I think the racing stripe and the silver body panels put it over the edge for me.

Rob,

I figured you'd open your ignorant trap again. Overspray paint jobs will win if they have the right critera in other areas.

example:
If one of your relatives pulled up to a show in a brand new Murciélago that has a mint-ass paint job and not a spec of dust on it, he'll still loose because his ignorant punk-ass little grandson's newphew's cousin has more custom work on his 13 year old poseur M3 (even if it has a cheezy gay-ass DEKRA sticker on the door). Comprende?

....and don't tell me what Charlie's car has... I know that car better than you know your own.

ok..

Now explain the reasoning behind "Judges choice" for best BMW.

Everyone would think that the M-Roadster would've won......or even the M-Coupe or even ACK's e46......

Yes Jeremy had a ton of aftermarket "bolt-ons" and yes it had
what some would say "a ricer wing" (no offence Jeremy) ,and most of all he spent a ton of $$$ on the car,AND it is 13 years old BUT.....don't you think that the M-Roadster was on a different level?

99% OF THE PEOPLE DID.

99% of people think chrome wheels are pretty and a stock paint job with fancy ropes around the car make it remarkable.... why? It's not people's choice... it's what the judge thinks and that's the final decision. If Bill, Charlie and Rich want to compete in a clean-car competiton, then join up in a concours and see what the judges with white gloves can find under their fenders. This was a Sport Compact car show... not a Pebble Beach Concours d'elegance. I hope they understand.

I'm surprised you're even bringing this up considering you won an award for a car you didn't even build! I gave you full points on "creativity" for wheels.... should I have?

yea i was the 1% that didnt...i love his car..but it aint import show quality...i was tellin the guys from max..and no offense...if Maxbimmer competed against say Versatile Racing Development...versatile wud obviously win cuz of the amount of mods their cars have! jus 2 of them alone wud take any of our cars..except maybe empowerd cuz of the work it has done to it...thats jus how its rated....

charlie..few more exterior mods and the system...u'll be killer at the shows! cant wait to see the final product.

the only thing i don't like is always the same cars are winning and are at the shows. even though they look good or not too bad, but comeeeee onnn every single car show u see the same cars around.

but at least this time i saw some new ones around and actually some of them won.

So are you saying that the m-roadster was too good for the show? Import show quality? You mean rice-quality? Outrageous *junk* bodykits and crappy reupolstered leather ?

Also,the guy who had the limegreen Golf didn't even have a headliner on the car and won for best MK2 ??

All you need to *win big* at these shows are

-bodykit
-"creative wheels"
-cheap lookin interiors
-Amazing stereo installs
-Overspray paintjobs (with glitter in the paint)
-Overized rear wings...
