Show & Shine 2004: more BMWs, more people, more fun!

Once again, the BMW gods smiled down upon Show & Shine. The downpours that threatened to put a damper on the event moved out to sea before dawn, leaving behind a brilliant, cloudless sky and temperatures in the upper 60s. An estimated 2,000 enthusiasts took advantage of the glorious weather and drove their BMWs and Minis to the headquarters of Bavarian Autosport to display their cars and marvel at a bevy of beautiful Bimmers. By 11:00am, all 350 available parking spaces on the property were occupied. The surrounding streets and parking lots contained dozens more BMWs.

Show & Shine is a BMW-lover's dream. The main event is an informal concours where owners compete for prizes in a friendly "People's Choice" competition. (No judges are used in the competition; winners were determined by popular vote and anyone in attendance is allowed to vote.)

This year, the award for Best Interior, (a set of Bilstein shock absorbers and an Eibach spring set), was won by Stan Chamallas for his 1974 3.0cs. Best Exterior, (a P21S car care kit, $400 AC Schnitzer gift certificate and Bavarian Autosport Ultimate car cover), was won by Theo Verios for his 1999 M3. Best of Show, (a Bavarian Autosport Tri-Flo exhaust system and Bavarian Autosport performance software upgrade), was won by Jerry Katechis for his stunning 1999 528i. Richard Roche of Arizona earned the "Farthest Traveled" award for the fourth year in a row.

Show & Shine is a totally free event: there is no charge for admission, nor for entering a car in the competition. Throughout the day, thousands of dollars worth of BMW parts and accessories were given away by Bavarian Autosport and its vendors in an ongoing, free raffle. This year, the raffle offered three Grand Prizes: a set of Hakkapeliitta snow tires (donated by Nokain Tire), a Remus stainless steel exhaust (donated by Remus) and admission to the Skip Barber One-day Driving School (donated by Sachs). In addition, Bavarian Autosport provided free coffee and donuts, a free BBQ lunch and free beverages to all in attendance. More than $20,000 worth of prizes, food and drink were given away. Next year¹s Show & Shine is scheduled for Sunday, October 2 at Bavarian Autosport headquarters in Portsmouth, NH. Hope to see you there!
