Holy Shee-ite, this guy IS Batman!

More custom garage builds. I can't seem to get enough. It really appeals to me to have a place for everything and everything in its place. Alas, those who know me know how poorly that concept describes me.

This fellow has a hidden space behind the regular 2 car garage for his BMW E46 M3. If it wasn't so well lit, it would be the Batcave. Look closely. There's a small seating area with a nice halogen lamp, leather chair and ottoman, and plasma screen. Bose speakers. A non-hot rodder's collection of automotive tool chests. A sleek, European WC. Spotless floor. And the "Steve McQueen" Gulf jacket notwithstanding, this guy's no poseur either, with his covered track tires and HANS helmet rig. It just hits all the right notes.
For those interested in the whole "build process", to use the vernacular of the Garage Junkie sub-culture, it can be found here.

And now, we return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

nb: These images are of a garage belonging to a guy who posts on Garage Journal and goes by the handle "E46M3". I don't have his permission to post it, so if he wants me to remove it all he needs to do is notify me and I will immediately oblige.

That is AMAZING. What the heck is the floor made of? Marble?

Thanks for introducing this notion. I had no idea...

Go to the website at the right (Garage Journal). It's a useful resource, but addictive. The floor is merely an acrylic paint with flecks mixed in. That's the kind of info HiLifers like you and me don't have in our personal Random Access Memory banks.
