Case in point? Studie AG. This Tokyo-based specialist – with divisions located around various Japanese cities – is the go-to brand for all things BMW. And we really mean all things. From OE servicing right through to Alpina and AC Schnitzer, Studie AG eat, sleep and breathe BMW culture. In fact, they even run their own Z4 race team within the Super GT series.
But knowledge and racing pedigree is only half the story with Studie AG. The way this specialist presents itself – in one of the most densely-populated cities in the world – truly separates it from any other BMW tuner. Walking through the showroom doors presents you with a shop more in line with an OEM dealership than a tuning house, complete with double-height ceilings, central reception desk and a super-clean, almost minimalistic design.
