Congratulations to Peachtree Chapter member Gianni Fermin for his winning submission for last week’s Fill-up Friday challenge! For his Instagram submission, he is receiving $50 in Shell gas cards! Every Friday, Shell and the BMW CCA will be awarding a BMW CCA member at least $25 in Shell gas cards and for February, Shell has raised it to $50!
This might have been good karma fulfillment for Gianni. It was just December when he acquired the new F80 M3 in his Shell picture but he made the two and half hour drive to the BMW Performance Center in Greer, South Carolina for the Performance Center Delivery program. So maybe this $50 in Shell gas is to cover some of that travel. If the color of this M3 looks unique, it is. “My lease was up on my previous M3 and decided to do something different this time around. I took delivery of the speed yellow M3 in December right before Christmas,” he explained. “I’m the only one in the southeast region with this special color. There is another one in New Jersey, but so far, there are only two in the states that I’m aware of.”
Gianni might have the upper hand on confirming that; he is a Client Advisor at United BMW in Alpharetta, Georgia. “My job entails handling current client portfolios and ultimately, creating a positive and memorable buying experience,” he explained. “Not one day goes by when I feel like I’m ‘working’; I’m just a kid in a candy store there.”
A BMW CCA member since 2014, Gianni counts Cars and Coffee events as his favorite club activity or benefit but he also says, “I also enjoy the groups and communities within and around the club. They are great ways to meet new people, network, share, and learn new things about the brand. I also like how active the club is in social media.” That’s coming from a member active in social media himself; follow him on Instagram at @atlspeedyellow and on his YouTube channel at gianniatlbmw, including his video of his delivery and Performance Center experience with his client and friend he brought along with him.
Keep taking and submitting those pictures of you fueling up your car at Shell stations and posting them to Instagram with the hastags #fillupfriday, #bmwccashell, #fuelrewards, and #shell_ontheroad. Each Friday, Shell and the BMW CCA will be selecting a winner of a Shell gas card and announcing it on Instagram, Facebook and now on BimmerLife.com, too!
Thank you for your membership and passion, Gianni!
