Once in awhile, Smartwax opens its warehouse to invite certain enthusiasts and this month, they invited the members of Mfest. It wasn't too long ago since Mfest had its own event at Las Vegas, but for those who still wanted to feel that excitement of an only BMW car meet, yesterday's meet was perfect for BMW owners.

Arriving late to the meet, there were still a decent amount of cars.

It's always good to see certain meets and events happening based on specific models and events. This meet was not as crazy as Bimmerfest, but a good size to meet new people and check out cars in depth.

Personally, I am opened to real and replica wheels, but seeing center caps that don't belong on certain wheels is a shame.

One thing I learned after Bimmerfest was that at least one BMW owner will act immaturely and there it is, doing a burn out. The car is in our Album of Shame on facebook.

Had a great time talking with friends and shooting some cars. Hoping the best for Mfest and Smartwax.
