This is mission control for BMW.  I have been a fan of German cars since my teens.  I am a true American, but have always enjoyed the German influence on the automobile.  I have worked for Porsche, Audi, Volkswagen, and BMW.  I drive a BMW X5, which was made in South Carolina.  I was friends with a previous CEO of BMW North America, and the founding CEO of Porsche Cars North America,.  He was a big influence on me and the decisions I have made in my life.  I hope to visit this building some day, I’m sure the experience will be surreal.

  2. I bought a 3 series BMW car in 1991 on 19th September when I was in England. It was 1988 model and the mileage was 43,000 miles. Since I liked the car very much I brought over it to Sri Lanka in Dec. 1994 when i returned. Since the it has done over 175,000 miles (The speedometer stopped working after 121,000 miles in 2001)
    I was expecting the replacement of the clutch plate from about 50,000 miles. But still the car is doing well withe original clutch plate. Very recently I spent about Rs 235,000 on Shock absorbers (all 4) and all front joints. This is over 2000 USD which is a huge amount of money in Sri Lankan context. I thought I would let you know about my car as it is a living proof and excellent testimony about the quality of your car – BMW. The car is with me and I have no intentions of selling it.
    I would be grateful if you acknowledge my e-mail
    Many Thanks

  3. Nothing beats the sound quality of German engineering. I had distinct pleasure in buying a Scriocco in 1978…the Champagne edition (white and black). My Dad and I both purchased one together. Its’ designer…Dino Ferrari…was exceptional. My Uncle Ralph Vecchi drove it about a week after I bought it.
    He had a Porsche 911T, and was shopping the car for his daughter Julie.
    After he drove it I asked his opinion of my purchase. He smiled at Dad and me and plainly stated, “that is way too much car for a woman !
