|I was born and raised in mother Europe. My parents
are artists and in 1990, my father developed art pictures (technique,
collages) for Mercedes, Porsche and BMW for showrooms in Stuttgart,
Germany. Successful with his work, my father has been driving a Mercedes
my entire life and has owned a total of twelve Mercedes. The first
car he bought was a W108 280SE 4 door. He currently owns a rare Lilac
color Euro W129 300SL-24. As a child, when he returned home from
Stutgard, Germany he always brought me brochures for Mercedes, hence,
the start of my love for Mercedes and BMW cars. At this time, the
newest BMW models were: E34 M5, E30 M3, E28 M5, E34 535i, 730i, 850i
and from Mercedes: W126 560SEL, W126 560SEC, W129 500SL W124 300D...
Porsche 911... The following trip, my father brought home small
model cars, the 190E-2.5-16 and 280SE 3.5 V8. My passion for German
cars continued to grow and the beginning of my life with cars began.
Little story about my first Mercedes-Benz and BMW M635CSI… When
I got my drivers license at the age of 17 in 1995, I got my first
classic car Mercedes. It was a 1972 W115 200D manual 4 speed.
It was not in the condition I wanted so I rebuilt the entire car.
I took joy in rebuilding the car and I gradually grew very skilled
and familiar with these classic cars. My second Benz was a cherry
condition, German grey color, non metallic, with perfect white
cloth interior W115 220D. To this day I regret selling it.
My first BMW-///M… One day a friend of mine offered
me a BMW 1985 Royal blue E24 6 series. I paid for the car without
even seeing it. I trusted him. I got exited because this will be
my first BMW. The condition was pretty good, 8 out of 10. The interior
was M cloth. The first time I saw the speedometer
it showed 280km/h-170mph rpm redline from 6500 to 8000 and had
the little ///M badge. It took me 20mins to open the front hood
as I didn’t even know how (E24 has different way to open the hood).
Once I opened the hood, I saw the engine valve cover had a little
BMW logo and reads M Power.
I had no CLUE what kind of BMW was this! The next day, a few friends
and I decided to go to the Golden Sand Black Sea to have fun. One
of them was driving a Black 84”Corvette C4 manual gear box, the
other W129 500SL 91” (a very fast car) and I drove the new BMW
E24 6. As you know, in Europe we drive like crazy without any speed
limits. We started to race each other on the Autobahn at night
(no traffic and cold air) I was driving and I passed the Vette.
The top speed for the Vette was topped at 240km/h 140mph and couldn’t
go faster. The Benz was equal but at the high end it was needled
at 260km/h-160mph and I got the 274km/h-~170mph red line. The driver
with the 500SL was impressed that he couldn’t maintain the top
speed of my BMW. I too was amazed and surprised by my new BMW’s
performance. After the trip I came back and started to research
what kind of BMW I had and I was eager to learn all about the car.
I opened the BMW brochure my dad brought me from Germany which
contained information about E24. I got the specs for the model
that is M635CSI with ///M aerodynamic factory kit, no AC, no self
leveling suspension, lightweight and the engine is 286hp M88/3,
10.5 compression ratio and factory with no Catalyst! 3.73LSD final
drive ratio, and cross spoke BBS RS 16" wheels.
Today, I currently own a first street generation BMW ///M Cars
followed by Dimond Shwartz E30 M3 with Euro engine S38-B38, US
E28 M5 with Black interior, E24 M6 1988 Black over Nature. All
the cars are in showroom condition!
Little by little my hobby became my business. I live in sunny
Southern California and export high end cars to Europe from the
US market. I also sell good quality European cars in mint condition.
My goal is customer satisfaction and at the end of every sale my
main concern is that the customer is thrilled with their Classic
