Who here is really into their garage?

When I was younger, after having a nice car, I always dreamed of having a really cool garage. Finally did it a couple of years ago and have kept "modding" my garages bit by bit ever since. I'm sure other M3 owners are into this too so I just wanted to share:


Here is my primary garage: cabinets are Gladiator Garage Works. Flooring is Race Deck Tile.




Here is the full current stable. Wife drives the A4 S-line (manual BTW). Cayenne is my DD.




Here is our garage at our vacation home. Still a work in progress.




So who else out there is into their garage !!!!

Do you have the plastic race deck tile? If so, how do you like it? I'm thinking of something very similar to your garage (already have the full set of gladiator cabinets) but the plastic sample tile that race deck sent me looks a bit cheap. Maybe once the whole floor is in it doesn't look as cheap as that single tile does in your hand.

Beautiful by the way!

I pulled the trigger 2 years ago and it looked nice for awhile but my Family and I have since cluttered it up. I'd be ashamed to send you a picture. My Spring project.

It is the plastic race deck tile. Looks very good IMO when fully laid out. There is going to be a tradeoff between durability and pure cosmetics. No, it isn't going to look a nice granite kitchen tile, but my garages do really get used, and the race deck is durable as hell and cleans up easily. If my garage was a showroom for a collection of exotics, it would be different, but it isn't.

Did the work myself. Race deck tile snaps together, and their website has a design template to help you design your pattern. Biggest problem really was disposing of all the packaging included with the cabinets. They pactically packed those things to survive a bomb blast !!!

VVG,

Looks like a fantastic garage, bet you spend a lot of time in it and I don't blame you a bit.

Below is my working garage and my dream garage when I win the big 50 Million Lottery I just know where to pick up them two fine automobiles, however, there will always be a ///M3 in that garage as well

I don't really want to dump money into the current garage since we don't plan on staying in it. Yes, i own the house, but down plan to in the next 3-4 years. So I'm just going to wait till I purchase my forever home.

Who here is really into their garage?

My garage is nearly too small to get my M3 "into it."

There used to be a beautiful RS 4 in the middle...

Never get bored of looking at your garage and contents, Vij!

Will be doing something similar for the 1M/RS stable..
