Midwest G8X Galena Cruise 5/6/23

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Met up with some great people for the Midwest G8X Owners group first event - a cruise to Galena, IL and through the curvy backroads of northwest Illinois. I think the most fascinating aspect of this for me is that even though we all have the same cars, there's so much variety in exterior/interior colors, wheels, mods, etc. And this is just the beginning...

BB6 - G80 comp; Dravit Grey; Fiona Red
ericj0n - G82 comp; Frozen Deep Grey; Yas Marina
PeteTheMailman - F22 6MT; Esotoril Blue; Red (G806MT IOMG; Kyalami on order)
vasillalov - G80 6MT; IOMG; Fiona Red
sononeil@gmail.com - G82 comp; Alpine White; Black
And last but not least, special thanks to MMM.PWR - G80 comp; IOMG; Tartufo - for the pictures, and thanks to reNT - G82 comp; Brooklyn Grey; Black - for the comprehensive itinerary

Here's a collection of pics from MMM.PWR's camera and my cell phone:

Terrific photos. It's difficult not to observe how vehicles with IOMG exterior color serve as a reminder of how good this color really is. vasillalov vehicle - IOMG + Fiona Red + 6MT ... pure art in motion. Congrats!

This should win the post of the month! Amazing!

Useless fun fact; my college roommate was from Galena Illinois.

That looked like very nice road trip that i wish i knew you guys so i can come too .Every interior and exterior always makes the cars different even like you said they're the same model.
Beautiful pictures and cars 🚗 😍

I was going to text you actually, but I know you're a busy man. For sure I will next time. By the way, there's the Badger Bimmers event this saturday, a few of us are going. Text me if you're interested I'll send you the details if needed.

That was a 400 mile trip from Chicago and back for me. 12 hours. Multiple stops. Multiple country back roads. Great weather, cool cars, nice people!

There was a lot of rubbernecking by other motorists going on when we drove on highway sections of the trip.
