The anchor point of the festival was the BMW Welt, a stunning building which forms the heart of the company's headquarters. The BMW Museum was an integral part of the display, not to mention the futuristic Vision Next 100 Concept, and the day was capped off by a large-scale concert and fireworks display in Munich's dramatic Olympic Park stadium.
But for Cars.co.za's Ciro De Siena, who travelled to Munich to take part in the festivities, the highlight was a morning's wander around the meet up of the BMW Club Internationale. Over 1000 cars were present, representing BMW's rich history and in chatting with some of the owners and enthusiasts, Ciro discovered the real heart of the brand.

Ciro started his first car website at the age of 19 and promptly dented his first ever test car. Surprisingly he’s still at this motoring journalism thing 7 years later.
