Fill up that wagon, er, Touring! Last week’s $25 Shell gas card goes to Golden Gate Chapter member, Mike Ottati, and this picture of his 1994 E34 M5 Touring. If you’ve been to Legends of the Autobanhn the past few years, this Madeira Schwarz Touring might look familiar. But since it’s only one of two that color from that year, and only one of 28 in the US, it might otherwise not be that familiar. Mike has owned it for the past four years and been doing “a light, rolling restoration” since he has had it, like “a lot of clean up, a little paint work/touch up here and there, and rebuilding the suspension,” Mike added.
Mike has been a member for more than 13 years. “My favorite parts of the club are the driving schools and the social / cars and coffee meets,” he said. “I’m an occasional instructor, too. It’s really the people that you meet that make it great.”
Shell has provided members $100 in Shell gas cards already this calendar year. We have some surprises coming up in February for the Fill-up Friday program! Keep taking and submitting those pictures of you fueling up your car at Shell stations and posting them to Instagram with the hashtags #fillupfriday, #bmwccashell, #fuelrewards, and #shell_ontheroad. Each Friday, Shell and the BMW CCA will be selecting a winner of a $25 Shell gas card and announcing it on Instagram, Facebook and starting next week, on BimmerLife.com, too!
