WA BMW Concours Pics
July 2011 I purchased my sapphire black 08 M5. A few weeks later I participated in the local BMW club concours and took first place in "big cars" which is where they put us. I crushed the competition - I think I can say that given that I was the only entrant in my category. Having the car fresh from the dealer meant it wasn't so hard to prepare.
This year, Killer-Bimmer, wasn't going to let me walk away with the swag without a battle. After a year of driving I had my work cut out for me too. I logged about 25 hours over the week prepping my beast, burning through Griot's products and late night hours like I was a billionaire and they were pennies. A few Blue Moons along the way kept my dedication lubed.
Yesterday I edged out a second win over Killer-Bimmer and his space grey beauty, but it was close. Looking over our cars it appears the only difference was half of a (thankfully) unidentifiable finger print on the left side headlight just prior to judging. Not sure how that might have gotten there.
Lots of awesome cars, though for some strange reason when I went home I only had pictures of mine and K-B's cars.
