British Royalty in Munich

No. This is not a forgotten sign from an old car plant from another era – one where Rolls Royce, Jaguar, and Range Rover were all owned by the same British owned car manufacturer. It’s actually the home of a high end body shop and repair shop for some of the top British cars made. If you own a Rolls Royce, you can’t just take your car anywhere – you take it to the specialists like this shop, which happend to be located in the shadow of the local BMW manufacturing plant. In Munich, you find no shortage of British expats with vintage cars, which should keep this place very busy. Oddly enough, it looked quite shut on the Wednesday morning when I drove by. Perhaps I overestimated the value of the British pound, and the influence of the British presence in Munich. Opened or closed – does anyone know? Their website still seems active.
