The dealership was spotless so it can only mean that someone may be opening for business.

Last pic of the 635CSi. If this is not brandnew its as close as you can get to it. Its simply flawless.

well screw me, as it seems from the pics there are only 2 cars there now and they have been moved. they used to face the street on an angle in order of
3, 6, 3. if the place has been cleaned then i guess someone has finally given these cars the car they deserve. i'm going to go check this out myself now. i want to see if the cars have been cleaned as well as the floor and general clutter in the office.

well i went and checked it out. while there i saw is what i assume to be someone from this forum checking the back of the place out also around 9:25. if you could post what you saw/though about what you saw around back that it would be awsome. i was going to head around the back but i was flying solo so with no one to keep watch i decided not to. as well there are lights in the back shop area that are on with some cars but i didnt peek though the window cause again i was solo.

Amazing after living near these cars for years and never ever seeing them move for 14 years. things have changed. Somewhere between now and June 2006 the cars and building have been cleaned. the cars have been moved out of there original spots and one car (one of the 3 series) is now gone. lol at this point my guess is whoever ownes these cars probably enjoys keeping their existence a mystery to the public by showcasing them at what looks to be an abandoned dealership straight out of the 80's. But i doubt the owner minds the public looking at them because he leaves them close to the window in a position that shows both cars off quite a bit.

I remember the Dealership and the cars belong to the owner who is a collector. He bought the 6 series and 5 series and a couple of 3 series new and intended to keep them mint.
I remember talking to the owner around 14years ago when the dealership was just going to close. I think he stored them there as he also owned the building.
Probably the building is now sold and he is going to move them soon.

Thanks alot for that info it sheds alot of light on the subject. Cause the place has been close for a long while now and as far as i can remember Budd's bmw has always been the oakville dealership. i just figured that the dealership went bankrupt. when i moved to oakville there used to be a lot of "independent" exotic car dealerships in the town (there was a exotic dealer i believe on the north service road and another on royal windsor in the 80's) so i figured that dealerships like citation were ran out of business by larger dealers and auto makers setting up there own dealer networks.

Yes the other Exotic Car Dealership went downtown and was on Parliament called "Caliber". My friend who owned the dealership had a Lambogini Club and then moved to Queensway. I lost track of him but he is possibly in California where there is a market for High End Exotics.
That was the era of fast cars and lots of money 70"s

thats was the name of the place come to think of it. it also sold ferrari's and such. i guess oakville/mississauga was a good market for him for a number of years. where as it seems that budd's chain of dealerships have taken over. you cant go anywhere on the lakeshore in oakville without seeing a budd's dealership plate surround.
