Congratulations to this week’s Shell Fill-Up Friday winner, Connecticut Valley Chapter member Evan Laudon (IG @indevijooel), who won a $50 Shell gift card thanks to this picture of a 540i that he helped purchase for a family member!
“The 540i in the picture is my grandmother’s new certified-pre-owned BMW,” said Evan. “I brokered the deal while on vacation in Louisiana. I rode a train seven hours north to complete the transaction, and drove it back in five hours. Before handing her the keys, I washed it and filled the tank with premium Shell gasoline.”
Asked how he originally discovered the BMW CCA, Evan said, “I’ve been a BMW enthusiast since my first car, a rusted-out 1987 325e. Because of that car and my love for the brand, I became a certified BMW technician. Once I was a technician, a peer encouraged me to become a BMW CCA member, which I did. My favorite part about being a member is receiving the monthly magazine Roundel. Roundel is super helpful in keeping me up to date on BMW news and tech information.”
When it comes to fuel, Evan is a big fan of Shell. “Shell gas is great because it’s consistent,” he said. “With today’s advancements in engine technology, gasoline is more important than ever. To get the most power and least deposits, I use Shell.”
As always, thank you, Evan, for your support of the club—and for your participation in Fill-Up Friday!
