Has anyone ever dealt with them? They always have interesting bimmers but the place looks sketchy as hell. When i was there they had an e30 touring and now they have this e28 alpina m5.
Just wondering out of curiosity.

I was there about 2 hours ago checking out Val's car selection. He's got some nice ///M cars there and a european E30 touring aswell. He'll be at Bimmercruise.com

Hahah... they used to have a BMW logo, but they removed it? Copyright issues?

I went there and thought, if anyone knows how to make a lemon BMW look good, it's problably this guy. BUT, I checked out the 540 I was interested in anyway, and ended up buying it! The car has been super solid. Val, the owner of VLS, was very patient while I went over the car with a fine tooth comb, and he took care of any concerns I had. I recommend this place and I'd shop there again.

Yah I was sort of iffy... One thing i noticed. Is the rear bumper of my m3 when i first saw it was fine.. when i came to pick it up it was hanging down. I didnt remember if it was hanging down when i first saw it.. and I dont blame val but probably one of his car jockeys..

Sounds like a pretty respectable guy. I was just curious as he has all these nice cars and runs his business out of a trailor. I was looking at a e38 740 sport there and got the impression that something may not be right. But it looks as if he is a legit guy with legit cars. Good to see another bimmer enthusiast importing such rare and desired cars.

EuroSpectacle, which E30 M3 did you get? The white one that's still in the autotrader for $15,900?

negative... if you click the link on the top of the page.. there 3 pics in the center that flash... mines the first one(with the house in the background)... ( i know this becuase its the pic that was in the auto trader a year ago).... and no... I wish mine was the white one... hes got a chip,wheels,and suspension and its going for 15,9 mine was bone stock going for 19... I got it less than 19 but thats a secret. :P

mines got 17" ronals, with slotted/crossdrilled rotors, and a 1200w system. thats it.. bone stock besides that.
