BMW M-Performance Meeting 2017 Cotswold BMW Cheltenham

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
The very first M Performance meeting today at Cotswold BMW Cheltenham and some photos of the day below.

Fantastic morning all round and great talking to the dealership guys there too.

The dealership itself is massive and very impressive! 4 stories high! It must be the biggest dealership in the UK and maybe the biggest in Europe?

Individual is very much part of what Cotswold do here by adding lots of M Performance parts to the cars as you will see in the photos below and if requested, painting in any colour you like (see the Mini).

PS, The E34 5 series has covered less than 10,000 miles!

Photos are in no particular order..





























Personal tour of the very impressive meeting rooms on the top floor:








Back to the ground floor:










The group have spent the last 5 years resorting this stunning 3.0 CSL and only a little bit left to finish:






























Tail lights are growing on me...



































Super low mileage E34 535i:






















































































Members cars:














All by itself..












































Back into the workshop..





































Interior of the green M4:

Some cool looking cars! I wonder how many 'd' cars we'll see in the future. I see a LBB X5M in NY - still not convinced.

The M4 vert is a beautiful blue!

The smoked lights would look better on a dark colour - MG or BSM - not sure the red is working for me!

Thanks for sharing

Despite this being a thread about individual cars:

M Performance Blackline tail lights. They're OEM. Were only released for europe though. You can find them on ebay for around $550.

I believe they are OEM but not available in the US. Some guys managed to get them shipped from Europe.
