Sizzling BMW Summer
The BMW Car Club of the Philippines successfully hosted its 10th annual BMW car show at the Filinvest Tent last May 4, 2013. Titled Bimmerfext X, the show allowed the club members share their passion for BMW and their prized car collections to the general public.
"We do this show every year during the summer month of May to celebrate our passion for the marquee" says Edwin D. Reyes, club president of the BMWCCP. "BMW has two taglines, 'The Ultimate Driving Machine' and 'Joy'. We want to share the joys of the ultimate driving machine to the general public during Bimmerfest."
To mark the brand's 10th year of presence in the Philippines, Asian Car Makers Corporation, the exclusive importer and distributor of BMW in the Philippines allowed the guests to experience this joy by letting them test drive various BMW vehicles during the event.
"To experience 'Joy' it must be shared" added Reyes.
