Meet Your Advisor
While there probably won’t be a "Boys of Bavarian" calendar coming out any time soon, our advisors are friendly, knowledgeable, car guys who take pride in their work and enjoy helping BMW and MINI owners get the right parts for their cars. Combined, these folks have more than 300 years of experience -- yours for the asking.

Gordon grew up in the Motor City (Detroit). In fact, his first real job was on the engine assembly line at Ford’s original manufacturing plant. His love for internal combustion started with repairing his neighbors’ lawn mowers, which then grew into hot-rodding go-karts and mini-bikes, and eventually to owning, building and driving high-horsepower Muscle Cars, frequenting Woodward Ave, and other Detroit area cruising venues. Gordon joined Bavarian Autosport in June of 1991. Since then he has owned a long string of BMWs and MINIs, including multiple E21s, E30s, E36s, E46s, E28s, E34s, E24s and E53s with Euro, M3 and M5 versions sprinkled throughout, and now he’s taking on the MINIs with a couple R56/R55 JCWs. He has his entire, extended family driving BMWs or MINIs! In addition to being a Manager here, Gordon plays the role of "Bavarian Otto" answering tech questions on our blog and making our DIY videos. He is often asked to contribute to the Tech columns in Bimmer, Roundel and other BMW and Euro enthusiast magazines.

Nick started his dream job as a Bavarian Autosport Advisor in 2014. He has been an avid automotive enthusiast and hobby restorer since the age of seven, when he began helping his grandfather restore a '67 Chevrolet Camaro. Nick's interests expanded to include many other marques, including Volkswagen, Audi and Volvo. At age 17, he purchased and restored his favorite (and still current) car — an '87 325is. Nick has an Associate’s degree in Applied Science and Technology from Great Bay Community College, as well as a degree in Applied Science in Business Administration from Southern New Hampshire University, where he landed an internship that eventually turned into a job as a Technician at a Toyota dealership. During his time there he acquired four ASE certifications and became a Toyota Master Tech. He is also A/C certified. Nick has also worked at a local repair shop and a large dealership group. Apparently Nick’s passion for BMWs is highly contagious and has infected several family members and friends; he has helped them to purchase and maintain a long list of Bimmers and MINIs, including a '94 325is, '07 328xi, '06 750i, ''11 328xi, '07 525i, '09 Cooper S and '08 Clubman.
