The BMW Club UAE was established in November 2007 out of passion for everything with a Roundel. What started as a chit chat in 2005 turned out to be the biggest brand car club in the Middle East, with current member count in excess of 2,000 members. The Club set out to offer what was missing for a long time in the Middle East; an entity of BMW enthusiasts meeting regularly online and offline to offer and share their expertise to others who would need it. Later on, it expanded to cover social and motorsports programs, of which we name the HPDS as an example offering students a race-prepped BMW on sanctioned tracks with seasoned instructors as passengers. The Club has expanded and affiliated with a few prominent service providers, such as detailers, service centres, tuners, and suppliers etc to make the member’s ownership an ordeal-free affair.

The Club runs a seasonal calender of social drives and gatherings and Club-run motorsports days where the members are introduced to many disciplines of the trade. We continue to grow organically and develop our relationship with the BMW International Clubs Council in a quest to keep improving what we offer.

Oh and when it comes to stuff we get up to – how about an epic drive across the UAE?

And the 1M Coupe finally joins us. Tell you the truth, we’ve never been this excited about a new BMW model since the BMW Club UAE inception in November 2007. And the reason is very simple; The M Division white coats have taken it back to the basics. We are all about the bare necessities in our M cars; A crispy engine up front, a 3-pedal true-to-God transmission, and a delicious LSD to keep us forward and sideways; simultaneously. Thank you BMW for listening to your smallest target audience.

For Phil it's all about the car, the quality of content and the story. Having experienced life on both sides of the automotive business, the unbridled urge to set up his own unique motoring website led to crankandpiston.com being founded in his spare room. The rest as they say is history.
