We rolled with 11 cars, and named ourselves "Team Nocturnal". This was nothing serious as it was just a gathering with friends to hang out and have fun.

It was a shock to all of us that 7 out of 11 cars won trophies. However, I took home THE BEST BMW OF THE SHOW!!! I was kind of surprised since there was an e46 M3 there that looked pretty sweet.

I just wanted to post and thank all the members that helped me mod my car. If it wasn't for ya'll, I wouldn't have won this trophy. A few pics are below. I'll post more pics tomorrow.

Big shout out goes to Martino Auto Concepts for making my car a one of a kind e92!!! You guys ROCK!!!

Enjoy!

As I pass him on the right lane, I take a look at the driver and he's not even looking forward, he's looking out to the left. Noooo idea what he may be looking at because there was nothing important out for him to be staring at. So I continue down the road and come to a red light 3 blocks later. The guy was still a block behind me when the light turned red. Mind you, I was only doin about 40mph while he was doin like 45 then 20 everytime he started to brake. After being at the light for about 5 seconds, I look through my rearview mirrior and see his grill literally about 20ft behind me still coming at me!

My car was in neutral and I knew I didnt have enough time to throw it into gear and take off so I just yelled out BABY!! (to warn my gf) and hit the brake hard so we wouldnt end up hitting oncoming traffic. Well.. this was the end result of that freaking *******... and to top it all off, he didnt even care!!!! He tried to leave but was blocked by a car that pulled up in the right lane so I jumped out of my car and made a huge scene even opened his door a couple of times telling him to get the f*ck out! The guy never showed any remourse or apologized. All he said was "oh well, it happened." Then he even had the nerve to tell the cops that he had no excuse/explanation. He just shrugged and said it just happened.

Anyway... here are the pics. /rant





The crap of metal that destroyed my car

The price of the repair was no where near the cost of the car, so it was fixed, and now back and better than ever!
