Congratulations to this week’s Shell Fill-Up Friday winner, LA Chapter member Eli Erickson, who won a $50 Shell gift card thanks to this picture of his M235i filling up at Shell!
“When I found my M235i convertible, it was looking a little rough,” said Eli. “The last owner must have left it with the top down overnight a lot, because the interior was begging to be rescued. It just seemed like the whole car needed a lot of TLC, but I knew that with a little elbow grease I could fix all the cosmetic problems. Mechanically, it was great, and I was hooked on having a BMW inline six. I bought it and spent the next couple of months slowly sprucing it back up until it shined like it was meant to. Now it’s my perfect little top-down canyon-carver that looks like it’s fresh out of the Matchbox packaging! You have to love those BMW inline sixes!”
Asked how he discovered the BMW CCA, he said, “I originally saw another member with a BMW CCA grille badge on their car drive by, and it intrigued me because I hadn’t seen a grille badge before. After an Internet search I ended up on the BMW CCA website and bookmarked it quickly. I didn’t own a Bimmer at the time, but I was already on the search for one, and knew the member benefits would be a great asset to have once I found my car. I soon after found my M235i convertible and snapped it up quickly, along with my membership.”
As always, thank you, Eli, for your support of the club—and for your participation in Fill-Up Friday!
