Congratulations to this week’s Shell Fill-Up Friday winner, Everglades Chapter member Jon DiNisio, who won a $50 Shell gift card, plus the $50 O’Fest Shell station bonus with this picture of his E90 M3! Yeah, he just won a $100 total in gift cards thanks to Shell! Pretty awesome stuff!
“This is insanely cool, really topped off my awesome week at my first-ever Oktoberfest!” said Jon. “This year’s O’fest was my first, but I knew that I had to attend being it was the 50th, and located near the Performance Center in South Carolina. The highlight for me was the day of events at the Performance Center. I loved meeting so many awesome folks and talking cars. Everyone has such a great story of how their love for BMW came to be, and it was great being able to share my story with others as well.”
Asked how he discovered the BMW CCA, he said, “I first joined the club in 2013, shortly after getting my E46 ZHP, the car that really ignited my passion for BMW and the M brand. I wanted to join the CCA in hopes of finding a good, local group of folks to share in the BMW passion.”
Tell us more about your E90 M3! “As for my M3, it is my dream BMW for sure,” Jon said. “It is a somewhat rare Le Mans Blue 2011 M3 sedan with the competition package [check the personalized plate]. It is very well optioned with the DCT (my preference). I’ve added a supercharger kit from Harrop [sold through BPM Sport in California], a full Dinan exhaust, some smaller upgrades from Turner Motorsport, and a host of maintenance parts from ECS Tuning and my local dealership, Braman BMW Jupiter. The car has been a dream to own, and while she spends most of her time in the garage, every time I drive it, I smile ear to ear. I will keep this one as long as I possibly can!”
As always, thank you, Jon, for your support of the club—and for your participation in Fill-Up Friday!
