Showcasing South African BMWs and its passionate fans


Posted on: 12 August 2023

After quite a long search which spanned over a couple of years and lots of flights to Durban, we finally found a suitable venue to host a BMW Day in the KZN area.

The uSHAKA Family Marine & Entertainment World was the ideal setting for a family friendly day for our Beemer folk in the Ethekwini region.


The event was received very well by the KZN BMW passionites, and we were extremely excited and looking forward to this day.

In order to show my commitment, my gratitude and excitement to share the BMW passion with the KZN community, i decided to have my E60M5 brought up from Cape Town to be a part of the exhibition. As I couldn't just be asking these guys to bring their cars out and i dont have mine there.


Earlier in the week i was browsing the flight websites for airplane tickets from cpt and found the airline pricing a bit steep,
So i decided to avoid the usual frustration of the airline tickets, and the check-in queues, and the procedures at the airport, and waiting to board the airplane - and more waiting to take off - and then waiting to land and then waiting for baggage to come and then walking a mile to the transport etc... which i didnt have the feels for. 

I then decided to sort out the alignment of the E60, pack the M5 till the brim with gazebos and stock and luggage. and drive down to Durban through the night from Cape Town.

(btw - this was the exact same thing we did 2 years ago albeit with a 1989 E32 735i - CPT to DBN.)


With some very clean and good looking Beemers coming out to partake in the BMW Exhibition from old classics till the newer G-series,
