1 & 2 were indeed awesome cars, the best of the old and the new. All of the cars brought by IND cars were really well done. I saw a few other cars that should have been in the top 20 instead, including a couple of the other IND cars.

Numbers 8 & 16 are hideous freaks, examples of how not to modify your BMW. Those two are example of modding gone awry. Just think what could have been, if all that money and work had been properly channeled.

This one should have been in the top 20 also. One of my favorites.

There is just something about the 8 series that just says "I am a badass". I liked the electric blue one best. The cars with the green rims and interior and orange rims need to be taken to the car crusher.

The 8's were schweet! #2 does something for me, although I wish one of those beautiful 2002 Tii's would have made the list.....

I would have added Mariano Garcia's wickedm3 (E30 M3). There was also another red E30 M3 that was nice too. Additionally, there was a beautiful 2002 turbo that does not appear in the top 20. Too bad. It was great.

Well, it is a fact...

I was at Bimmerfest #1, you may have been too Marcus. I know we met at one of the early ones, but again, since I'm old, I am having a hard time remembering which one:

Jeff, we hung out at the 2002 event. My first one was 2001.
