Commitment to the Environment
As a leader in the Service, Repair and Tuning of BMWs, we lead by example as leaders in our commitment to the environment in which we operate.
Our 8,000 square foot main shop is heated by waste oil from the oil, transmission and differential fluid we have collected at Pacific Motorsports.
We utilize a modern, clean-burning furnace for this purpose and accept waste oil from our clients and neighbors as a convenience too.
Our environmental commitment spans not only the “green” aspects (recycling, conservation, reuse, etc.) of our business, but the community as well. We try and do business with the people who follow Environmental Best Practices. This is part of our commitment to source parts and services from as many local vendors as possible.
For example, one of our clients has a metal recycling business. All appropriate metallic parts removed during the course of repairing vehicles are given to him.
Two other recycling companies visit us every week for the balance of material recycled.
We have access to many used parts, especially for older cars (e.g., 2002s and e30s), and offer them as an alternative to our clients.
|Der Grune Punkt
In the spirit of the German “Grüne Punkt” that requires manufacturers to recover their own “packaging”. We revel, recover and recycle in this German model as well. After all, we’re all about the “Best” German car ever made.
|Renewable Power Our electricity is from 100% renewable power. We were the first small business in Portland to accomplish this.|
|Think Local We are members of the Sustainable Business Network and try to make positive differences in as many areas as possible.|
