You could say he is heavily involved in the local E30 group. He attends events at VIR, and local BMWCCA group outings. He currently owns three BMW’s; a 2000 540i 6 spd, a 1989 E30 325iX, and 1990 325is with a stroker motor that was built with the help of Steven. Its currently awaiting a set of ITBS which are on the way as well as a standalone ECU. As you can tell, he is an Avid BMW Enthusiast especially for Vintage BMW’s, and can always be found tinkering with E30’s. He is always willing to help and give information that helps everyone around. He won’t pass up a chance to further increase his knowledge of BMW's and those who drive them.
