It will provide an opportunity for the group to gather and show off our respective rides to the local BMW community on mass. if the group is interested. There is however an entry fee for those who wish to participate. The details and further information has been posted on the event schedule along with a RSVP request. As we close in on the date we can discuss if we wish to meet just prior to the event so we can be positioned together. In addition, there is a Cars and Coffee event scheduled for Sunday, July 26th hosted by Cars & Coffee Steveston. The event starts 8:30. at Gary Point. Hopefully we can get a few cars to attend, usually a great selection of cars.

    23rd Annual BMW Car Club Concours d’Elegance @ Waterfront Park The BMW Car Club of BC Concours and Heritage Celebration is an annual event to celebrate the BMW marque. We are fortunate to have a high proportion of well maintained older cars in our club, many of them are excellent condition daily drivers. The purpose of our ‘Concours’ is as a ‘gathering’ to recognize and appreciate the various BMW vehicles manufactured for over 100 years. It is meant to be a fun social gathering for club members and the public. Participants are encouraged to bring their BMW and show it at this event by entering it in one of the two categories. The Display category is for the showing and appreciation of your BMW. We recognize the beauty and value of these cars, and are encouraging every BMW owner that attends the event to display their BMW on the grass for others to view. For those that have a competitive nature, we have the Judged category. Here we have a variety of classes and trophies for the top 3 cars in each class based on how clean and detailed the owner has kept their BMW. The judged classes this year will be: Classic BMW pre 1998 Modern BMW 1998 – 2018 M Cars The judges will consider 21 factors of each judged car’s exterior, interior, and engine bay. Points will also be awarded for age of vehicle and mileage. Let it be said, “garage queens are at a disadvantage – these cars are meant to be driven.” In addition to viewing all the cars, this is a great event to meet fellow BMW owners and socialize. It is an event suitable for the entire family. We’ll have a unique hot dog vendor on site available at a reasonable price, or you can bring your own picnic lunch, or head over to Lonsdale Quay for something exotic. Every car entered will receive a 21st anniversary BMW Car Club Anniversary dash plaque. There is a cost to entering your BMW in the event. Display $10 Judged $20 Participants that won their category last year are not eligible to enter their car in the Judged category. This gives others a chance to win the top prize. For those wishing to enter their BMW in the Judged category it is recommended that you show up closer to 9:00 am so that your vehicle details can be recorded for the judging that occurs later in the day, and to give your BMW those last finishing touches.

  6. Hey I just discovered this place. Anyway, I can send you to the guys that rebuilt mine. He is a racer and knows what is what. He won't be the cheapest, or the most expensive, but he does top notch work.
  7. Good afternoon Bc bmw gang. as is always the case, rear suspension is all apart and discovered my rear differential has too many problems to be a viable candidate for rebuild. does any one in the area have a differential they would like to part with? LSD would be great but open differential is fine too! jay
  8. Hi Everyone, The BMW Car Club of BC is doing the Rolf Drommer Memorial Harrison Drive on Sunday May 31. This free event is also open to non-BMW Car Club of BC members to participate of course in their BMW. For those that knew Rolf he put a lot of effort into promoting enthusiasm in the BMW Marquee from vintage to the M & I cars. The event will be an easy drive through the back roads out to Harrison. It will start in Langley around 10am. Details can be found at www.bmw.hm Ignore the comments about signing up for the hotel lunch. The hotel lunch has been canceled. I am helping out by seeing if we can do an in car lunch service with the local hamburger shop. If not be prepared to grab A&W on the way home. If you plan to attend check the page prior to the event for updates and a pending link for route instructions that you can print. Please drop a line to [email protected] to let them know you're interested because it is their event and they need to know rough numbers. They use an online registration system for their membership but I'm sure an email if you are not a member will be fine. It will be nice to show off some of the vintage metal to some that may never have seen a 50 year old BMW in the flesh.

  14. Monthly event held at Gerry Point Richmond, usually well attended.
  15. Since its beginnings in a parking lot on the corner of Shaughnessy Street and Lougheed Highway in 2005, to the amazing crowd of 70,000-plus spectators on hand in 2016, the Metro Ford Downtown PoCo Car Show has seen amazing growth and popularity. This year we anticipate larger crowds and more than 500 vehicles on display. There is also continuous entertainment throughout the day on the main stage, a beer gardens, model car building workshop and a huge children’s entertainment area for kids of all ages. On Saturday night we will be hosting our 4th annual Car Cruise and BBQ, presented by Fremont Self Storage. Good food, live music and a great route make for a fantastic kick off to a fun-filled weekend! For further details go here!

    A celebration to the 100 years of BMW The organising committee and the primary sponsor, ‘Pelling Insurance’, are pleased to announce that on Labour Day Saturday, the Eighth annual Crescent Beach Concours will be held on the grassy lawn of spectacular ocean side Blackie Spit in Crescent Beach, British Columbia. The 2019 event mark’s the 17th year that we have brought together a Labour Day long weekend gathering of Collector Automobiles and Motorcycles. From applications the committee will select up to 80 outstanding entrants. This year, as in the past, entrants will come from all over the west coast of Canada and the United States, and cover a broad span of makes and years and included vehicles that are often rare and seldom seen by the public. This event is a (ICJAG) International Chief Judges Advisory Group Concours d'Elegance that is sanctioned by the (NAACC) National Association of Automobile Clubs of Canada Corporation. We welcome local businesses as sponsors and would be pleased to talk to them in 2018 about ways they can get involved in the event. For more information please contact Brad Pelling at (604) 263-3400 or email [email protected] The official hotel of the Crescent Beach Concours is the Hotel Promenade located minutes away from the show field.

Hot Coffee and snacks by donation await.Proceeds to North Shore Rescue.Please maintain all posted speed limits and watch for cyclists and pedestrians.
  20. In an attempt to further expand our network we have created a Facebook group page BC/Lower Mainland 2002 Owners Grp. There is increasing ownership over the past few years and not all owners are FAQ users, so with that on mind we are hoping to complete that circle and increase the overall participation and knowledge sharing. I realize that FB may not be that popular with some as the preferred social platform of choice, so if anyone chooses not to join it, you will find the identical information posted here. Should you wish to participate here is the link. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1178792885653865/members/ Any questions or concerns, please let me know.
