Modified/tuned cars meetup anywhere?

I know there are various meetups like "cars & coffee" with top notch, high-end Lambos, Ferraris, Paganis... But are there any less official gatherings for tuned cars enthusiasts? I'm not talking about "Fast & Furious" style, but rather a nice modified AMG, classy E30 slammed with nice rims etc?

I could well imagine the local rozzers being interested if one ever happened. Looking for illegal mods they can fine.

Re: Modified/tuned cars meetup anywhere?

Yes. Most modded cars with swiss plates tend to have AG plates.

//M and AMG, the odd Golf and #JDMyo cars are the usual victims.

I am in the process of getting something else to replace the tank, and as I was looking M3s and M5s my gf just mumbled something to the line of: "you'll be just another sicondo with exhaust and wheels".

To which i retorted
  • I'm not a sicondo
  • Eisenmann is love, I object

Also most of these cars are more molested than S2000s are in Greece, which is a freaking accomplishment...

True... Now I recall seeing photos of modded rides with "AG" on their plates.

Last time I owned something for fun was few years ago, MK5 GTI, and the mods started. Then there was the move to Switzerland so we had to sell one car and GTI went away.

Now again I want to get a new toy to have some driving pleasure, therefore I was interested in such a meetup, cause it's always a chance to chat with the owners of more interesting rides, get a test drive (sometimes) before you make any decision what to choose for yourself.

I'm considering few years old touring/estate sth like C63 AMG, RS4/6... Unfortunately ///M doesn't produce wagons.

Yes there are - but like wife swapping you need to bring your own.

Re: Modified/tuned cars meetup anywhere?

Would like to join once to try it out. Is there a calendar or should I just keep watching the forum.

I now drive an Audi R8 V8 (2011) in Suzuka grey.

And people don't just walk up to you and say "Hi, nice ride. A bunch of us get together in Schwamendingen for a communal ride on Fridays, you should come by. We meet in the Aldi parking lot at 19:45."?

Frankly, I'm a bit surprised.

That'll do - first check Pistonheads - the Swiss group occasionally get together. Myself and another forum member have been known to head to France to exercise the cars - and time/weather permitting we will try to get a couple of drives in before the end of the year.

A lot of it is adhoc though

To look at cars - Dolder Classic is running monthly, so is the Zug Classic (simply google the names). Cars and Coffee has a Swiss event (lots of nice metal but not overly inspiring) and Cars and Coffee Italy are coming to Lugano in a week or so. I've not booked a place yet - but will make a decision closer to the time.

If you want to exercise the car on track this is the company to go with - http://www.wirzmotorsport.ch/trackdays/

Days might look expensive BUT they are fully catered including lunch, have technical support, it is an open pitlane day and the numbers are kept quite low**. AV8 R8 will be towards the poverty end of the automotive spectrum, so if you have ever fancied being overtaken by a race prepped Huracan it is the day for you.

**Give or take around 1/4 of the number of a Pistenklub day!

Re: Modified/tuned cars meetup anywhere?

There are by time to time some meetings in the parking of the COOP of Lupfig. Includes old and new "muscle cars", if you are interested. Unfortunately, I don't have a link to check, but the person of the car garage of Lupfig participates on it, here is the link of their site

Kind regards.
