The annual BMW vs VW event hosted by Rizo and his team at JHB Parties seems to be on the up. Each time I attend this event, it honestly gets better and better and with that continuous improvement, it seems like the caliber of cars attending these events are also improving.
This two day event kicked off with more of a party vibe on day one but for the purest fanatics, the Sunday is the main event as this is where we get to see a number of those freshly modded rides.
Truth be told, while walking around, you could clearly separate the pure enthusiast from the folks who were there purely for the party as it showed in their rides. I saw some really hot rides which sported some serious mods to some pretty good builds. I’ve been attending this event for a number of years now and what I can confidently say is that the quality of builds must have been the best I’ve seen in a while. There were a few cars that literally brought me to my knees. I’ve even managed to find a decent amount of awesome feature quality rides, which doesn’t always happen.
As can be expected there was a car or five that left you wandering WTF. I’m not one to discriminate as I do believe that everyone has to start somewhere, however some rides left a lot to be desired.
As far as the brands go, the amounts of VW’s present were definitely far greater than the BMW’s. I guess it goes to show that VW really is the people’s car…
