Once a year, we like to open our shop doors to all of the wonderful friends, family, and customers (both current and new) who support us. It’s a time for anyone to come and explore the shop and the builds we display. One of the best parts of the automotive community is gathering with likeminded enthusiasts who genuinely share your passion for cars. This year our Open House took place on a sunny Saturday at the end of April, and the turnout was fantastic.
The shop floor was staged thoughtfully, with Malcolm’s new M2 set as the centerpiece. Surrounding it were the shop F80, Shafique’s M3 (recently featured on StanceWorks), Greg’s RZ M4, and Chris’s track purposed E46 M3. Each build was selected to demonstrate all that we do at Performance Technic. The newest build on the floor, the M2, is in its early stages, and we are very excited to watch it progress. It appeared to be popular with our guests, and inspired a bulk of conversations around the event.
The morning started off light, as our regular M5 group showed up together. As the afternoon crept in, we saw a variety of cars come and go; everything from the ever popular F8x chassis, to an incredibly well preserved black E31, to a couple of E30 M3s. BMW wasn’t the only make to stage an appearance, though. A fiery GT3 RS and a comparatively cool GT4 posted themselves about the event, and attracted quite a bit of attention.
Outside in the shop parking lot, one of our good friends brought by his M2 for all who were curious to photograph, sit in, and explore the options that the car yields. It was a great contrast to Malcolm’s M2, which has already been modified.
In our Race Shop, Dynamic Detailing had set up a display to demonstrate the effects of ceramic coating, as well as showing what other detailing services they offer. Behind them was an array of race cars, from the red widebody E36 and its matching spec E30 counterpart, to Teague’s customized SMG E46 M3.
One of the biggest hits of the Open House was the catering, which was provided by The Lumpia Company! They crafted their usual unique creations, one of which was a vegetarian lumpia stuffed with kale, mushrooms, and sweet potatoes. They offered chicken rice bowls and other variety of lumpias, and everyone seemed to be a fan.
The event drew in an exceptional crowd and we feel so grateful to have the support of so many. We’d like to thank each and every one of our guests who attended; it’s the people who make these occasions special, after all. We look forward to hosting more Open Houses in the future, and we hope you will continue to enjoy them as much as we do.
