BMW of Riverside Cars & Coffee

Alrighty, I am finally getting around to posting these from my Sunday outing. I was scrolling thru Facebook last week and saw that my local BMW dealership was hosting a Sunday edition of Cars & Coffee. With this one being held from 8-11 on a Sunday rather than the typical Saturday 7-10 time slot that most are held made it easier for me to attend.

You can tell from the pictures it was a decent turn out with some rather nice cars. I mainly went because I am slowly becoming a fan of BMW’s more and more and really would like to get the M2 on the road and track and of course parked in my garage one day. I do have some familiarity with the Bavarian car maker brand a I’ve done a drive event or two and have an infatuation with the European models that we don’t see here stateside. The one that I’m watching a lot of content on is the M140i/M240i hatchbacks, particularly the Motech and Motech Shadow editions. These cars are tuned by a BMW tuning company called Motech and then sold through dealerships in Europe. These share the same platform and engine that we see here in the 135i and the M235i/240i coupes but with a few engine upgrades, body pieces and tweaks to the suspension. The M235/240 coupes are nice but take a backseat to the full track monster found in the M2. But that’s another story and topic to cover…back to the Cars & Coffee event.

Again nice cars, a dj playing music, prizes, chill people, reving contest and a sense of community as with any car group. The only difference is you get the feeling with some of these guys that it’s BMW or nothing. I even heard someone commenting on my ST as I drove onto the lot to park. It’s to be expected as I was crashing their party, so no big deal. Enough chatter on to the pics and video.

Nice wrap on this one

The Shark

Miata (MX-5) is always the answer

Check the license plate. AMG owners beware!

Time to start recycling and saving up those pennies

This M5 with the M-Performance exhaust looked and sounded wicked
