Bimmerfest X sizzles with everything BMW in summer

Yeah, you don't have to tell us that it's the middle of summer. We can feel the scorching heat too. So what does the country's sole all-BMW car show do to host their 10th year anniversary? Rent a huge ass air-conditioned tent in the heart to Alabang, of course! This way, all visitors can bask not in the heat, but in the passion of everything BMW.
 
Bimmerfest X, the 10th annual all-BMW car show hosted by the BMW Car Club of the Philippines (BMWCCP), sizzled last May 4, 2013 at the Filinvest Tent in Alabang. And doing what they do best, this year's show focused on BMW's two most famous tag lines: “The Ultimate Driving Machine” and “Joy.”
 
More than 40 Bimmers were on display with models spanning four, or even five, decades - all of which are personal collections of BMW car owners in the Philippines. Well, almost. Joining in the action was Asian Carmakers Corporation (ACC), the exclusive distributor of BMW in the country, who showed their support for the event by displaying their very own new Z4 roadster and F10 M5. They even let some potential customers take a BMW of their choice for a quick spin so they too will know the joys of owning one. Also, Tuason Racing School (TRS) was there with their new E46 M3 race car that they'll use in their 2013 Philippine GT Championship campaign.

Bimmerfest X was also supported by the BMW Owners Society of Saferiders (BOSS) - the official BMW club for motorbikes. This way, visitors not only appreciated BMWs on four wheels, but on two wheels as well.
 
Of course, the main highlight of Bimmerfest X is the Show and Shine Competition. Here are this year's winners:
