Cool Second BMW M Exclusive Dealership Opens, in St. Petersburg, Russia

Second BMW M Exclusive Dealership Opens, in St. Petersburg, Russia

Following on the heels of the first exclusive BMW M dealership in Singapore (photo tour) which opened in 2010, the second exclusive M showroom has now opened -- in St. Petersburg, Russia. It's called "Park M."

During its opening ceremonies, Managing Director Alexander Bystrov said: "Our dealership is located in a new business district of St. Petersburg where young, modern business people leave and work. For them, speed, power and prestige are important in a car. You will find all this and more in the unique products of BMW M."

Why Russia? Along with China, BMW M considers Russia one of the hot emerging markets for M vehicles. Can you guess which is the most popular BMW M model in Russia? Answer: the X6M.

We're hoping that no M models sold from this dealership will face the same shiny fate as the Russian gold X5M and green chrome F10.

Since USA is M's biggest consumer, why in the world would they not build one here? Don't get why we get the worst M special products and yet we are their biggest market. I would have to think USA probably sells 100 times the M cars that russia does yet they get an entire dealership??

Maybe you just answered your own question. They don't need to entice US customers because we are already buying up all of what M division makes already.

Clearly these M dealerships aim to spark interest in certain regions and obviously the US doesn't need a spark so hopefully this works and sales continue to climb.

Grow up? You clearly know nothing about russia. Corupt communism and corrupt mafia involvement has shaped 90 percent of the failing economy there. I would say that is pretty grown up.

go to Oceana condominium complex @ Brighton or check Emmons ave @ Sheepshead Bay on weekend night and you'll see most M and AMG cars sold in NYC.
