Recently a few friends mentioned that they were planning to host a new German car meet in the South East, as they’d noticed a significant gap in terms of quality meets in the East London/Kent area. With the date set to be every first Saturday of the month and the stage currently set at Bluewater Shopping Centre, I decided to make the trip up to check out the first ever TreffPUNKT. I really wasn’t sure what to expect – putting on your first meet can be hit or miss attendance-wise. On arrival, about thirty minutes late due to the lovely London traffic, most of the car park was already packed out with German metal, mostly BMW’s. Impressive! Throughout the night more people kept turning up, including a whole host of classic Mercedes’ which were just awesome to see. Check out my highlights…

As you can see, the quality of cars were right up there with the best, which is really surprising for what is essentially a car-park meet. Another major plus about the Bluewater location was the fact that the dedicated part of the car park was pretty far out of the way from the general public, well lit, and of course a whole selection of restaurants within walking distance – essential for a Saturday night when catching up with car buddies. To top it off, they are doing a good thing with it by collecting for Cancer Research UK, this time they made a healthy £250 towards the charity. With “Treffpunkt” meaning “meeting place” in German, the guys are considering switching up the location at times, which is a great idea. But for the next meet, it will remain at Bluewater in the cinema middle floor car park so if you’re in the area on the 5th September, make sure you head down.
