    show and Shine questions.....

    I will be a virgin show attender and was wondering a few things.

    My 99 E36 looks good, but the front end paint has taken a beating on I495 going 85-90 mph everyday for 2 years (about 40K miles each year). The windshield was replaced last year due to the pits, but the pits are back again. The lights are pitted also. I bought a nice bra from bavauto that covers most of the damage.

    I'm just curious if I should attend the show because my car is not perfect. I enjoy E36'ers and just wanted some feedback.

    The car is black on black with 5 speed and overall looks good,unless you get real close and start looking hard.

    Do only the perfect cars show up?

    I own an E30, and my car is far from perfect, but mr. greenpants says to go, so I guess I will have to go to sleep early and drink lots of coffee that weekend.

    Hi Ken,
    I have never gone to the Bavauto Show & Shine ,but from what I hear from others on this board that have ,it is a "fun" thing & not so much a competition.I am sure none of our cars are perfect & as I said before "We are our own toughest judges " Hey I am going to bring a 20 year old car ,its not a show piece or garage queen.I drive this car lots ! Its a fun car to drive & I will leave my Z4 home. I dont think We have to enter our cars to attend the show. drive up with us & hangout. Could some of you guys that have gone to this event fill us in on what goes on ?

    its really lax,

    some people are really into it, but alot of the cars are just street cars. give it a wash and wax before you come, dont bring a dirty car. if you dont want to show it, you can park on the street... as that is what i did last year

    Sounds like fun and good to network and

    find other enthusiasts.

    I just need to figure out how to clean those damn stock rims better...any ideas? These are the stock 16" on the sport package 323is.

    mainly about hanging out with other enthusiasts. personally, i won't spend any more time than usual on my car, but my usual would make most people beg for mercy ;-)
