The BMW 1M is already a rare sight, but 56 of them together 1 place is almost unbelievable!
In July of 2019 I was invited by my friend Ludo who owns a lovely black BMW 1M to join him on a trip to Frankfurt where he said there was a BMW meeting for only BMW 1M Owners.
Being a lover of the 1M ever since I first heard of it in 2011 I jumped at the opportunity, even if it did mean waking up at 4:30 in the morning.
The event was organised by Amar Bath, the owner of Luxus Detailing where he hosted the BBQ and original meeting point.
This is where all 56 cars gathered together and gave me the opportunity to meet and talk to owners make new friends with the same passion for this car as I do.
I also had the opportunity to grab a few photos of the event before we set off on the drive
After the BBQ and quick brief of how to behave on group we set off to a picturesque german black forrest carpark large enough to line up all the cars next to each other.
Before arriving, driving in group gave me the chance to get some rolling shots of the pack on the German Autobahn, hanging out of a car at speed with you camera inches from the ground was definitely worth it in my opinion.
After a short drive we arrived at the location where we were going to line all the cars up next to each other for a massive group photo.
This part has to of been one of the most memorable experiences shooting cars I've had, 56 of your childhood dream car lined up next to each other honestly left me lost for words.
Luckily a picture says more than 1000 words so I'll let you enjoy the rest of the set.
