My BMW Experience, Bimmerfest 2012

My first  BMW Experience to only exclusive all BMW cars show. Thanks to Edwin the club President for invite, I miss the morning event and sunshine opening. With lot of surprises, So I got the night pics with raindrops blessings below. When I dropped by at BGC, Taguig City last week for BMW Bimmerfest 2012. The bmw brand car-show were categorized in Heritage, Modern and Special Era. 

I saw in the US and other countries that BMW Car Club festivities like this is being done in an Open Parking like 9ave in BGC, Airport Tarmac or Racetrack. Watch the upcoming Action on West Coast In Pasadena, CA this May 19, 2012 and East-coast Aberdeen, MD on April 25, 2012. Of course, the pretty BMW models makes the show more beautiful.

Aside from display, they do the engine test, road-racetrack test drives as well as speed even drag racing. Where BMW club owners and enthusiast showcase their passion about this prestigious German car around the globe annually. M5 model was the center of attraction here in the Philippines Bimmerfest 2012 the counterpart of Jaguar XJ, Alabang dealer told me.
Some members do modification on their cars, BOSS or the BMW Owners of Safe Riders also invited non members to join them like me. Now I understand  more about the BOSS trip, media challenge to Europe Ariel told me last year during the  Race of the Champions Victory Party. Aside from racing, Knowing BMW is a great supporter of multi-sport like golf and biking. I also saw cool sports equipment, clothing, bikes with bmw logo on displays below.

As the club owners and the big boyz excited to tell about their own units. As well as interesting motoring, daily bmw stories. Me and one of the dealer also club member from Brembo/Autoperformanceph talks about different car brand and types. 

Tells me Z's and X's stories that are pretty much exciting. Brembo technology and green braking system. Which can save fuel and also good for environment. Like the BMW M6 coupe sports version at Geneva Motors Show. It uses Brembo's braking system a 6piston aluminum calipers with 410 millimetre carbon ceramic disc.

Anyways I meet some of the members and introduce to me to Brembo  Safety Braking System. On the BMW car display together with the competition racing booth open for BMW club members and media category. An Italian brake system first launch in the Philippines. I asked why not now? Why not  in MIAS  or country's biggest car show the Transport Show? Since they carry all brands of cars braking system. 

He told me this is the first day and its good to do it with your alma mater.  He is a big supporter of the car club. We talked about 007 previous BMW cars and the alternate Aston Martin. As well as car companies history and well as sister company ownership like Lexus to toyota and many more. He's now my official car professor.

Then I asked him are they sister company? He said no, Its just happen during that time 3 bond movies loss its bid to Aston Martin. But the trademark of Bond is really BMW's. 

After that I do the media racing challenge to BMW Monza racetrack to 5 laps to bad I didn't make the score to beat is at 2minutes best lap and I got 3. But I constantly got 15 seconds intervals improvement though from a disappointing 4minutes starting practice lap. Also I didn't make it to AF2 BMW team Goddard scholarship last 2008 in Sepang.
