BMW M3 Fall Cruise

The history of the BMW M3 Fall Meet and Cruise

It’s a big week! With over 107 cars signed up (and more always appear the day of), the 2021 M3 Fall Meet and Cruise is probably going to be the biggest show yet. I’ll bet you missed the first one, so let’s have a mega gallery of the past 6 years leading up to this Sunday.

If you have not signed up but want to join, you can do so here.

2015

We start here, where the show was really intended just for the E9X (A few F80 guys showed up). The show started in a restaurant parking lot with excellent NYC skyline views, but by 2017, it had already gotten to big, so we moved to a shopping center.

2016 – No show

We waited for the original organizer to stage the show for 2016, but nothing ever occurred. The concept was cool, a show and drive is rare. So I decided I’d take over and do it myself.

2017

It rained, but that just made for dramatic images. After a year off, I took it upon myself to organize everyone, and this was the result.

It’s the most famous picture of my E92, and I took it a few minutes before everyone arrived.

2018

A nice mix of E9Xs and F8Xs, this was where the show really started to hit its stride.

2019

2019 was a lighter turn out, but still had over 60 cars. This was the first year I had my Nikon Z7, and the last time the run would end in Bear Mountain.

Other automotive groups use the mountain roads in the fall, so it can get pretty crowded.

2020

With COVID causing everyone to experience some cabin fever, last year was huge, over 120 cars. It was even featured on Roundel.
