“This is why we thought it good to have an evening where we can better engage them and showcase our phenomenal offerings here with Pupkewitz BMW, which include the full BMW range, including the i3 and i8, a full Mini dealership, quality pre-owned vehicles, a standalone Motorrad dealership and a lifestyle store with every item of BMW clothing, down to the socks,” he boasted.

The quality of a BMW is clear from the sound it makes when closing the door, or experiencing it’s standout performance and driving dynamics.
