Lots of Photos from the Bay Area M Group Meet/Rally (1M/M3 content inside!)

This past weekend a few of us met up at Alekshop for a drive. Not everyone was able to make it, but it was a lot of fun nonetheless. It was great to see multiple 1M Coupes carving up the canyon roads. It was a great group of respectful and level-headed drivers (read: no egos ). Hopefully we'll have more cars the next time around. Anyways, here's what you came for:

We met at 9am in front of Alekshop. VO really stands out in the sea of AW.

I stayed in the back of the pack to take photos (I had a co-driver for half the run so I could shoot).

We took a break to wait on one of the M3's (the passenger was car sick).

Awesome pics now I am even more excited about my car that doesn't arrive until January. You have also succeeded in confusing me even more over color choice

I really wish there was a BSM 1M in the mix. Would have been great to have all three colors in there.
