Although I didn't make the final cut, I would really like to order a calendar (or two or three). I'm really looking forward to seeing all these great Bimmers in 2013.

So congratulations to all those who made the final cut.

And to everyone, like me, who tried but did not succeed....we will be back next year, right?!

Finally....thanks Valentino!

First, happy late Thanksgiving and hopefully everyone had a safe enjoyable turkey day! Sorry about the delay on my part though. This past week has been HECTIC to say the least. I had to fly out to visit some family for Thanksgiving. On top of that, I came down with a really bad cold on the flight back. So with that being said, I apologize for not responding to some of you in time.

I know that this was a close contest and everyone is well deserving of a spot. With that being said I will shift one of the members up to the cover page to add one more person to this mix. Here is the list of the members who made the top 13 (including cover page) after receiving some votes from members who messed up voting the first time and adding those in as well. These are not in any particular order. Congratulations to:

1. NorthJersey3er
2. M3Slickracer22
3. Gheybe
4. Tlav17
5. Barbaros
6. 808Elise
7. ///Mostarac
8. M Kube
9. Panicos81
10. Pho3nix46
11. Visor328i
12. 330berg
13. NedsBimmer

I will mention this once again, please do not be discouraged if your car didn't make it. I know some members felt a little down when their rides didn't make the first cut and sure some will feel the same about this. This is about as level of a playing field as it gets. Members photos, members votes. If anyone sees any discrepancies please point them out. Also, if you see your name here please e-mail me the highest resolution image you have of the photo that was chosen. smoothlogic33@gmail.com

I just wish I had the roadsters back when I got those shots taken. Thanks for making this happen Valentino. Can't wait to see and order some calendars.

How voting works:
The poll is in multiple pick format where you will be required to choose your top 12 favorites, 1 vote for each month. This will keep the voting balanced and eliminate a shift of votes towards one particular pick.
I emphasize that YOU MUST MAKE EXACTLY 12 PICKS. No more, no less. Voting will be monitored on a daily basis to ensure we stick to the rules. Polls close at midnight on Sunday November 18th giving everyone ample time to vote.
Rule 1:
*Make exactly 12 picks*

Every one of them is a banned user.
I don't have a "horse in this race" so I think I can say without bias that obviously the fraudulent voters/Banned Users votes should not be allowed in all fairness.
I can probably go one step further and say anyone who decided to go against the rules that were set very clearly before that you must vote for 12, no more, no less. I can see maybe 10 but if those who messed up and only did their car and 1-2 others than you probably should subtract their vote as well as it messed up the tally and system you were going for.

Now that's if you want to make it fair and balanced. should not take long to calculate.
But if you just want to get this going then so be it.
*(It's just sad that some people have to manipulate and ruin a voting).
