What a weekend! Bimmerfest is officially over and I’m already feeling the withdrawals. Bimmerfest gets better and better every year! One thing I have to point out this year is the caravan up to Bimmerfest because it was a bit unorganized. That didn’t bother me too much though; I just had to mention it because the caravan is one of the things I always look forward to. But it was all forgotten when I got the Bimmerfest! Over 2,000 BMW’s all parked together at the Rose Bowl Stadium was an amazing view you would never forget, and over 5,000 people were in attendance. I felt like a kid in the candy store walking past hundreds of rows of BMW’s. I must say 70% of the BMW’s displayed were stock, but it didn’t really matter because everyone in attendance was there for one main reason: the passion and love for BMWs. Over 80 vendors were showing off their products which meant over 80 plus spokes models! Bimmerfest is an event that brings BMW’s from all over the place, but that doesn’t necessarily mean all the cars there looked amazing. Of course, there were many amazing machines but there were definitely some machines gone amazingly wrong! Here are some pictures that I got at Bimmerfest please enjoy!
This past weekend was so hot I really didn’t even want to step outside the house! Extreme AutoFest was basically the start of show season for me, so I didn’t want to miss out on this event even with the extreme heat. Roll in was around 9 in the morning and the heat was starting to get to us already.
It was all worth waiting in the heat though. This event is called Extreme AutoFest for a reason: all the cars that show are to the Extreme! Every make and model was in attendance from VIP Scions to stance out Evos. Because many events were happening at the same time, it was hard to decide what to watch! Drifting events, import models, custom cars, acts on stage, car hopping and so much more were taking place. Did you know Extreme AutoFest isn’t only about cars? There were plenty of motorcycles that showed up as well! The crazy stunts they performed on their bikes were just insane! Unfortunately, my phone was acting up and I couldn’t take as many pictures as I wanted to but here are some pictures taken by Robert Renderos.
It was a very hot day but Extreme AutoFest threw great events that kept us busy from thinking about the heat.
How often do you change your tires? Replacing your tires is actually pretty important. If you think about it the only part of your car touching the ground is your tires. Tires take a lot of beating, pot holes, curbs, rocks and even sharp objects every now and then. Especially with extreme weather such as hot days reaching over 100 degrees to pouring rain or snow, you need to make sure your tires are ready to keep up. We all know tires over time start to disintegrate, also known as dry rotting. Eventually oils and chemicals in the rubber compound start to evaporate or break down because of the UV exposure. Did you know applying tire shine often speeds up this process? You will start to see cracks on the side wall of your tires. Here is a good example: think of a really old rubber band. When the rubber band starts to crack, it will eventually break apart. This process goes for your tires, too. Even though you might not drive your car that often that does not mean the tires do not need a checkup. Just from your car sitting in one place for a long period of time will cause stress on the walls of the tires. Tires are recommended to be changed at least every 6 years depending on where you live and the weather. You should also keep in mind that tires need to be changed at least every 20,000-30,000 miles depending on what type of tires you have as well. Changing your tires could be the matter of life or death also. Please take a moment to check the wear of your tires.
