If you're a CG (Car Guy) like me, you know that thing that some dudes say when you try to talk about cars: 'I'm not a Car Guy.'To me, hearing this is sort of like saying 'I'm not into boxer briefs, I kinda like ruffled panties' or 'ooh, a hammer? too complicated, let me call my handyman.'I mean, there are guys, and there are CGs. Having owned a BMW e36 M3 for 8 years, a BMW e90 M3 (competition package, bitches) for 3 months, I am surely a CG. Before that it was a Mustang 5.0 (Vanilla Ice CG), a Jeep CJ7 (Beachy CG) and several early 80s VW's (all CG'd out). And when I was a kid, my best friend's Dad owned several 1960s Jaguar race cars that we would borrow and rip around in. At age 14. Yeah, CG.Let me be completely clear. I have tried, on several occasions, to buy a Non-CG car. It didn't work. I thought a Honda Accord would be smart. My Dad would not let it go and I wound up with an M3. I even drove a Fiat 500 for a month. And kind of liked it. But then I thought about getting hit (god forbid) and promptly got another Bimmer. And can you really snarl around the Fletcher onramp to the 2 in a car with a motorcycle engine? Nah.So yeah, CG por vida, wether I like it or not.Anyway, Avus. I'm not even a customer. I just visited the shop as a guest and was BLOWN away. Why?Because it is classy and immaculate, because they clearly LIVE for automobiles, because they are trusted with cars worth hundreds and thousands of dollars by people who could go anywhere they want. I overheard some conversations that I KNOW they must have every day, yet they still have them with the same passion as if it was the first time it came up. 'Would you buy a 540 stick for your wife? Hells yes.'You should see the precision with which they move cars around the shop. I've never seen anything like it in my life. A choreographed dance of German Steel, all done effortlessly yet with absolute precision. A dropped Ferrari motor over there, an m3 getting a Dinan Stroker motor over there, e46 with a BBK...this place is nuts!I'll be honest. After having a borderline exotic for close to 10 years, I'm not planning on EVER paying another repair bill. But if I was...I'd probably hit Avus.And it's across from Mini Kebab and they cook their employees steaks at lunch. Need I say more?
