hmm....what's under there??

On Sunday, October 6, 2002 BMW enthusiasts from all over the United States came to the headquarters of Bavarian Autosport in Portsmouth, NH for 'Show & Shine 2002.'


Show & Shine is a BMW-lover's dream. The annual, 4-hour event features an informal concours for BMW automobiles where owners can display their Bimmers with pride and compete for prizes in a friendly 'People's Choice' competition. This year 307 BMWs entered the event (up from 206 last year!) and an estimated 1800 people were in attendance, making this the largest one-day, BMW-only event in the United States... if not the world.

The award for 'Best Interior' (a set of Bilstein shock absorbers and an Eibach spring set) was won by Hamad Al Khalife(right) for his 2000 M coupe with an astounding array of audio and video installations.

'Best Exterior' (a Zymol car care kit and a complete set of AC Schnitzer aluminum accessories--shift knob, pedal set and e-brake handle) was won by Tod Bryant(left) for his exquisite 1970 2800CS. The 'Best of Show' award (a Bavarian Autosport Tri-Flo exhaust system and Bavarian Autosport performance chip) was won by Mike Morris(middle) for his rare and pristine 1973 2002tii Baur convertible. No judges were used in the competition; winners were determined by popular vote and anyone in attendance was allowed to vote.


Richard Roche earned the 'Farthest Traveled' award (a set of Boge shock absorbers), driving in from Tombstone, Arizona to enter his 2001 325i. Richard won the same award last year by shipping his BMW from Cdexheim, Germany, ahead to the United States and driving it to the event upon his arrival in the U.S. Other contestants came from as far away as Kentucky, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Canada.

Show & Shine 2002 was a totally free event: there was no charge for admission nor for entering a car in the competition. Throughout the day, thousands of dollars of BMW parts and accessories were given away by Bavarian Autosport and its vendors in an ongoing, free raffle. In addition, Bavarian Autosport fed everyone with free coffee and donuts, a free BBQ, including free beverages such as Old Speckled Hen, Bellhaven Ale and Warsteiner Dunkel. In all, more than $15,000 worth of event prizes, raffle prizes, food and drink were given away.

Next year's Show & Shine is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, October 5 at Bavarian Autosport headquarters in Portsmouth, NH. Check here for more information or call 1-800-535-2002, extension 1540 (international call 603-427-2002).
