The most loyal BMW customer ever picks up his 135th BMW



73 y/o Klaus Hammerschmidt picked up his 135th BMW. What would you get for your 135th car? An M6, which is a long way from his first BMW, a 1963 1800ti. He has owned 26 BMW M-division models, 29 BMW Alpina cars and 80 other BMWs.

Pretty cool. I think all companies dream of achieving that level of customer retention.

I am over 40 and still wish I could afford to be on my 1st. I guess I have 135 to go. Maybe my wife will get our first after I am dead.
It sucks being poor.

I thought it would have been funny if his 135th car was a 135i. But wow that is amazing. I wonder what he does/did for a living.
