Sometime late last year BMW Group Asia announced that Munich Automobiles Pte Ltd had been selected to specifically market BMWs M cars and M accessories in Singapore. Munich Automobiles is therefore the first dedicated distributor in the world to market the automakers high performance cars. The company, jointly owned by Prestige Cars and Sime Darby will offer the full range of M cars including the M3, M5, M6, X5M, X6M as well as M accessories and is located Teban Gardens.

July 25th 2010 marked the official opening of the showroom. The first M dedicated showroom and workshop opened in Singapore and what could also be the first dedicated M showroom in the world at this moment. As stated above, this dedicated showroom will only sell BMW M cars and M accessories. No bread and butter 320i, 520i, 118i or any of that stuff, but of course you could buy one at the Sime Darby Centre and spec it up with those M parts and accessories by heading over to Teban Gardens .

It is a historical moment for BMW as well as the progress of the local motoring retail sector. Hopefully there will be a steady demand for a dedicated high end stuff from a manufacturer as it is often seen that bread and butter models pull in the biggest bucks, especially in a country where car ownership costs are high.

Of course I wonder whether you could buy a 118i there and spec just some M stickers and logos. Would that be allowed?
