First M2C meet happens in South Africa

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi Guys,

So I have not seen any major M2C gatherings happening yet, so I thought I would take the time to post up our local South African M2C meet. Although compared to many meets around the world we might be small, however it is still something special to get a bunch of strangers for a breakfast run that in the end turn out to be great guys but more importantly family.

With our common interest in beautiful cars and similar values it always brings a smile to the face when a gathering of fine BMW M's happen. Although we managed to muster up a 6 M2C gathering, it was not short of having 2 M2's and one stunning M3C. I don't think one M was standard out the factory in appearance and what stood out was the love for HS. I must personally admit that BSM is just as wicked of a colour on the M2C.

The day starts with a gathering at 11h00 on a Sunday morning with temperatures averaging around 26 degrees (celsius). The overall roar of having so many S55's and N55's is just breath taking and literally can be heard without any doubt that the BMW M's have arrived.

We landed up taking a rather "spirited" drive to our breakfast run destination where the guys really showed why these M's are just magnificent in every sense of the word. Although the meet was short, good memories were made, great friendships have begun and it most certainly won't be the last one we will have.

The amazing photography was done by: carter_duli - I would highly recommend giving his instagram a visit.

Enjoy the ride with us:

Apart from the single black car all the comps are silver. Not much diversity but nice pics. Like the blue m3 too, nice!

My M2C is silver and this is exactly the reason I won't be going to any M2C meetings (unless I know there will be some other coloured cars there &#128513

Great pics! Would be such a blast driving around South Africa in one of those!

Anymore shots of the black one?

this is true, but I guess to each their own. I think my M2C was the only car without sunroof.

You would think that we did not have any speed bumps here but hey, somehow we manage to get over them!

Great pics. Thanks for posting. We visited friends in Pretoria a few years ago who took us to their place in Mjejane Reserve outside Kruger, and then we flew on to Cape Town for a few days. Trip of a lifetime for us Americans.

Having spent half my life in SA its great to see this.
Missing the sunshine right now so bad... Snow and sleet here in the North East US.

Hope you guys didn't just drive up and down the N1?
Show some pics from Hartees or something scenic like that. We know you must have it!
