Unleashing the Thrills of Bimmer Invasion Orlando

Unleashing the Thrills of Bimmer Invasion Orlando

March 1, 2024

The triumph of Bimmer Invasion soared to new heights this year, even in the face of a rain-soaked day attempting to dampen our spirits. But nothing could quell the fervor of the BMW community! With over 5,000 enthusiasts and BMW aficionados braving the elements, this year's event at Dezerland Park Orlando proved to be an unmissable spectacle, with over 1,500 BMWs converging to celebrate alongside BBS and over 50 other sponsors.

As the official wheel sponsor, BBS showcased our impeccable lineup of wheels for BMW cars and SUVs at our booth. Among the standout features were an F82 M4 adorned with the sleek BBS Unlimited CI-R in 19" and a G80 M3 flaunting a custom re-barreled and finished LM-R owned by Kenneth Fong, one of the founding partners of Bimmer Invasion.

Despite the challenging weather conditions, the BBS booth buzzed with activity. Our merchandise flew off the shelves, providing much-needed warmth for attendees unprepared for the cold, rainy day.

Bimmer Invasion has firmly entrenched itself as the premier BMW event in Florida, captivating enthusiasts from across the southeastern USA. It's a vibrant festival that unites lovers of the iconic brand for a day of showcasing and celebrating all things BMW. The event boasts a judged car show and invites owners to display their prized vehicles in a VIP area of Dezerland Park, as well as throughout the park itself.

This year, BMW North America graced us with their presence, showcasing their latest M and X models, including eye-catching gems like the M3 CS in Signal Green and the M4 Comp in Frozen Purple. The presence of BMW CCA underscored the growing significance of this event in Florida's automotive calendar. Spectacular cars dotted every corner, and the energy both inside and outside the park was electrifying. Families joined in the festivities, adding to the sense of community and camaraderie.

One of the more impressive cars at Bimmer Invasion was the Pit+Paddock x Bilstein E91 GTS Tribute built by PSI. The presence of this car allowed fans to enjoy and experience the wagon in person. Bimmer Invasion provided the perfect opportunity for Florida fans to admire the details that may be hard to appreciate on the Internet. The car was assembled by Precision Sport Industries (PSI) in Oviedo, FL, so fittingly enough, it was the flagship display vehicle between its booth and CSF.

This creation pays homage to one of BMW’s best factory specials—the E92 M3 GTS—but in a form factor that BMW M had long left ignored. It uses standout components from the aftermarket industry—Bilstein Clubsport coilovers, an Akrapovi? titanium exhaust, Stoptech BBK, BBS E88 wheels, CSF cooling, and a Carbahn 4.6-liter stroker motor—to surpass its lofty benchmark, but above all, it’s just simply one of the coolest cars we’ve ever built.

Adding to the spectacle, IND Distribution and Eventuri unveiled a breathtaking lineup of cars, including the G82 M4 adorned with BBS RI-D wheels in the captivating hue of Citrine Goldand the Eventuri carbon fiber air intake system - a testament to innovation and style in motion.

Bimmer Invasion proved that not even inclement weather could deter the passionate BMW community from gathering to share their love for the brand. It's an event that encapsulates the spirit and essence of BMW enthusiasts.

Join BBS as we eagerly anticipate the next chapter of Bimmer Invasion, making its way to Southern California for Bimmer Invasion West later this year. Don't miss out on the excitement and camaraderie that defines this extraordinary gathering of BMW enthusiasts!
