  4. Location: Waterfront Park, North Vancouver, BC Time: 10:00 am – 2:00 pm Every car entered will receive a 22nd anniversary BMW Car Club Anniversary dash plaque. There is a cost to entering your BMW in the event. Display $10 Judged $20 This is one of the Club’s events that is open to the public. There is no requirement to be an official Club member for this event however to get the full appreciation of the BMW Car Club of BC it is recommended that you join. 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. 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 There is no need to register on Karelo – just bring your car and your entry fee. 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.

  11. 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.
