I completely agree with this article. During my college years I picked up a used 2006 Imola Red ZHP Coupe which was loaded to the T
Another year of Bimmers in Aberdeen, Maryland. The day started off rough with a 4 hour drive to Aberdeen due to the Express lanes of the New Jersey State Turnpike being shutdown and leaving North Jersey at 9:30AM unlike every other caravan leaving at 7:00AM. However, the drive was quite worth it with many different types of Bimmers there. However, sorry to say not many e46s (unless it was a M3). The day ended with a burnout competitions leading to of course Aberdeen police being surrounded by a riot of people screaming “LET HIM GO!” and shutting the event down 15 minutes early. No complaints at all and the drive back was exquisite as it was only a 2.5 hour drive with multiple BMWs on the road. I managed to keep up with Autocouture’s caravan for most of the time while seeing BMWs everywhere and invading Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey. It was fun to see people hanging out of their cars on the highway trying to get the ultimate shots of the BMWs doing fly bys and cruises. I can’t wait to do another caravan. Enjoy the pictures, I think there’s something in there for everyone.
On July 14th I had the privilege to drive many of BMW’s wonderfully engineered machines to the max. My day started with a quick car control informational session going over the basics (oversteer, understeer, front/rear load, etc). Since I pre-registered for the Autocross event in a fully loaded 228i M-Sport we proceeded to a fleet of them. Each car having the instructor and 3 individuals. I would say there were about 10 228i’s available. We drove over to the Autocross track where we were then given another informational session. After that the instructors took us out showing us what a reference cone and rolling on the throttle meant. My instructor was quite fun and helpful as he did one slow lap and then one quick lap.
