Three BMW nuts decided to setup a shop one day... this was the result...

Greetings from the Philippines! Just wanted to share.

With over 40 years of combined BMW experience and enthusiasm, three BMW nuts decided to set up a shop one day to share their knowledge and love for BMWs to others......

.....and this was the result:



















BMW Parking only!


























A few more shots of the shop, starring starring the boss' gem and a visit from royalty!



















And introducing royalty! ARC says hello to a Rolls Royce Silver Spur! Our jaws dropped when we saw this regal car pull in. We weren't sure if we had to roll out the red carpet for the driver! haha



6.75 liters of Rolls Royce handcrafted goodness! Our jaws dropped when we saw this regal car pull in. We weren't sure if we had to roll out the red carpet for the driver!



Other random shots of the shop.





























Plus! Top Gear USA host and drifting legend Tanner Foust was the in the Philippines working as a stunt driver for the latest Bourne Legacy movie. He dropped by, met up with Arc Automotive and gave us a big thumbs up!







We've only been open for a little over 2 months, so the place is still a work in progress, but needless to say, this is a dream come true for us! You can find more details on us at www.arcautomotive.com.ph. We primarily service BMWs of course!

If you're ever in Manila, Philippines, drop by and hang out with us. Even if you don't have any cars that need to be fixed, we still enjoy the good company of Bimmer-heads! Cheers!

Detailing the Z8.

Here are a couple of pictures of a Z8 being detailed. We made sure to get all the nooks and crannies cleaned up!

We also did a full service on the car as well, including a brake upgrade (will post details on that soon).

Wheels off, getting cleaned.





Before



After




















Cheers!
