2000 328Ci

With over a decade of experience in the automotive show scene, countless Best In Show trophies, magazine features, and a fan base of thousands in the online world, Chase Donnelly serves as a fantastic champion for aftermarket manufacturers and car care companies.  As a young boy, Chase found himself interested, entranced, and emerged in the car culture.  This passion transferred into adulthood and resulted in the BMW below.  With year after year of improvement and enhancements, this 2000 328Ci has proven itself in competition and ranks among the most recognizable E46 models on the net.  Customized from top to bottom and boasting the highest performance numbers of any vehicle of its make and model, this is a automobile worthy of attention and the utmost care.

Throughout 2013, Chase helped to promote and represent Meguiars’ at national shows, localized social events, and on the world wide web.  The highlight of this relationship occurred at Carlisle, Pennsylvania’s Performance & Style auto show.  At the event, Chase displayed his vehicle adjacent to the Meguiars’ tractor tailor and worked with Ian to promote the brand’s products while demoing them on the BMW.  The exposure and enthusiasm resulted in thousands of dollars worth of Meguiars’ sales, marking the event one of the years most profitable.
