Congratulations to Lonestar Chapter member Brian Cichocki, our latest Shell Fill-Up Friday winner! Brian’s post featuring his heavily-modified 1991 U.S.-market M5 has won him a $25 Shell gift card! “My father [pictured in the passenger seat] first joined the CCA around 1982, so I have been aware of the club for as long as I can remember,” says Brian.

Asked what got him to join the club, he says, “After buying my first E34 M5—this black car—in the summer of 2017, I got hit by the BMW bug hard, and decided that I should become a member. I now have a total of five E34 M5s, one of which I found through the BMW CCA classifieds a couple of months ago,” he adds.

His favorite thing about being a member? “The camaraderie and genuine enthusiast nature of the club. I’ve made some great friends in a short time,” says Brian.

And the M5? Tell us more! “This car is a 1991 U.S.-market M5. It is heavily modified with a 3.8-liter Stage 2 stroker engine built by Korman Autoworks in North Carolina, late-model ’95 European M5 brakes with four-piston calipers and 385-mm floating rotors, Moosehead Engineering spherical bearings in the control arms, Ground Control coil-overs at all four corners, Racing Dynamics strut brace and sway bars, 9″ square forged M-System wheels with original turbine covers, full Supersprint exhaust from the headers back, and an AC Schnitzer trunk wing,” says Brian.

As always, thank you, Brian, for your support of the club—and for your participation in Fill-Up Friday!
