BMW True North 2015

Although the weather this week disagrees, show season in Toronto is slowly getting under way. The first show of 2015 was the BMW/Mercedes True North BBQ held at Eurocharged.   It was in North York so the drive out wasn’t too bad and I was able to convince Danny and a few others to come out from the east end.   The turn out in early April seemed really good.  There was a good mix of both BMW and Mercedes and a good variety of cars within those brands.

Popping hoods at car event is the universal sign to get people over to your car.  It doesn’t even have to be anything special, people will always come by if you hood is popped. Luckily for Danny, the 1.8T under the hood of his E30 keep people on their feet.  If you want to grab a closer look at this swap, it’ll be at our booth at Fitted on May 23rd.

The styling of the i8 seems so far ahead of every other car available today.  It looks more at place on the set of the next future cop movie than North York.  These set of black and blue ADV.1s really fit well on this colour combo.

The new M4 might be the best looking BMW in the last decade.  I LOVE how aggressive they look.

Budget “builds” brought to you by yours truly, Brian (e36) and Sil (Ti).  Sorry Sil, Bron and T, I refuse to like 318Tis but I’ll be nice and post the pic up any ways.  And Brian,  you need some new damn tires man.  And I need a new MK3 lip, some new fenders and a whole lot of dent repair 🙁

No this isn’t Mauncho’s car.  I’ve mistaken this car before for Mauncho’s, rolling up to the Scraped meet in Pickering one night.  But quickly came to my senses.  Mauncho on summer wheels?  never.

Dany’s E46. Definitely the hardest parked car there.

A few other brands showed up to the party too.  Dan’s Cayman is looking as good as ever.  The colour and wheel combo are on point.  Having driven a base Camaro before, I can tell you how crappy they are but when GM turns one into a racecar that’s faster than a GTR, you tend to overlooks things like rear visibility, interior quality and panel gaps.  I WANT this car.

BMW owners ten to stick to the OEM+ mantra.  Just nice wheels, a few Euro bits and a nice drop.  IMO, thats all most cars need any ways.

The E34 amd E32 have such similar front ends.  We were second guessing ourselves on the Alpina.  Well, I knew it was an E32 but others, who shall go nameless, needed a little convincing.

You know what really grinds my gears?  As I was leaving the show after most of it seemed to wind down.  I was greeted with a handful of really nice BMWs heading to the show.  Its these same people that will complain about how the show wasn’t that good and the attendance was bad.  Maybe if you arrived there on time…..   As for myself, I had a good time catching up with a few friends and checking out some nice cars.
