Congratulations to Puget Sound Chapter member Tim Alfaro, our latest Shell Fill-Up Friday winner! Tim’s post featuring his E39 M5 Touring conversion and Scott Johnson’s Imola S62 swapped and supercharged E38 has won him a $25 Shell gift card! “When I bought my first BMW in 1999, the original owner of my E36 318i had a BMW CCA sticker, so I researched and joined,” says Tim. “I joined for the dealership discount, but as I became more aware of the events and benefits, I started to participate.”

Asked about his favorite part about being a member, he says, “The events, meeting people with the same passion, and the growing social-media presence. We are a group of guys who have day jobs and build cars for people. We’ve recently been concentrating on S62/M5 swaps, and have done six within the last two years. We do not have an official shop, but we go by ‘Studio62.’ We love to help the local PNW community with car support and are active on social media,” he adds.

Both the E39 and E38 pictured in Tim’s post have an impressive list of mods:
