Bimmerfest and TUNER GALLERIA team up for the 2012 Battle of the Bimmers, sponsored by Nitto Tire!  In keeping with the tradition of Battle of the Bimmers, registration is limited to the first 75 cars accepted within the Modified, Stock and Classic categories.  With over 2000 BMW cars expected to be on display at Bimmerfest 2012, the Battle of the Bimmers will represent only the best!

The entry fee for the general Bimmerfest 2012 event is $20 per BMW vehicle to park in the show (including all passengers free) but does not include being judged as part of any competition.  For those who wish to compete for trophies and prizes, you must register for Battle of the Bimmers, sponsored by Nitto Tire. 

The entry fee for Battle of the Bimmers is $60 per BMW (including all passengers free). Vehicles registered for Battle of the Bimmers are parked together in a special section and have a separate entrance gate set aside for vehicle roll-in. The vehicles will be professionally judged and the winners will be recognized at the official award ceremony presented by the Bimmerfest staff.  

The award categories are:

+ Best of Show Overall (Winner receives a free set of Nitto Tires.)
+ Best Rising Star (Only owners 25 years old or younger are eligible.)
+ Best Shop / Sponsor / Vendor Ride
+ Stock - First, Second, Third
+ Classic - First, Second, Third (Only pre-E30 vehicles are eligible, < 1984 vehicles.)
+ Modified - First, Second, Third

When you register for Battle of the Bimmers, you receive the following benefits:

1. Entry in the professionally judged competition. All judges have BMW specific knowledge and experience. All judges are car builders themselves.
2. Separate entry gate into the show for Battle of the Bimmers competitors. (Avoid waiting on the same long lines getting into Bimmerfest as the general vehicle entries.)
3. All your passengers that arrive in your BMW enter the show free.
4. Battle of the Bimmers competitors are all parked in the specially designated area. For those competitors that register for Battle of the Bimmers, but your vehicle is committed to a sponsor booth, not a problem. Let us know which booth you are located in, and we will judge your car at that booth.
5. Compete for trophies and prizes and ultimate bragging rights.
6. Individual competitors in Battle of the Bimmers will not be competing against shop or vendor owned BMWs. Those vendor/sponsor/shop cars have a separate award category to compete in.
7. Media from domestic and international publications will be onsite to scout their next feature rides.
