Share your garage pics.

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Motex and ecleland recommended a garage pic thread as a spin off of my nesting thread so here it is. Let's see where your F80/82 or other cars sleep. I'm not done, but I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel so I'll start.

I started with this a little over a month ago.
Looks like this today. There are two more tall cabinets going in and 4 more hanging small cabinets. Recessed lights and stainless deep sink are dragging out, too but I'll get there.

Floor is dirty, but it's shiny under there, trust me.





First new addition arrived last week.

Added pics: my garage has an open layout, with 2 storage rooms where I keep all my stuff, nothing fancy, is just my house garage, good thing is that my wife always parks on the driveway, so the garage is all mine, size is 6.5 deep and 7 meters wide (21x23 feet)

Ok folks, here it is. We moved 2 months ago so the garage is still a mess. The ///M will be parked next to wifey's Yukon. Since I'm trading the S4 in a month, I've been procrastinating and haven't fully straightened up the garage...she's being parked outside. Sorry for the crap picture, wanted to post so Chiplee would feel good about his garage again.

Garages used to house greasy tools, rags, dirty lawn equipment, discarded boxes and the occasional car. Now they apparently must be antiseptically clean operating rooms.

Doesn't mean I don't want one

Lol, thanks. Worked a little. Looks like you have a lot of space to work with when you get to it.

Love it. Your garage is a work of art. I love the balance and tidiness. Did you do this all yourself or pay a company to help?

What are the two fans for? Is that to keep it cool when you have parties in there?

Impressive transformation. The floor mats look great. Is there any function they help with other than decor and a target when parking?

I remember someone saying the paint from the garage floor may stick to the tires on hot days, so I'm wondering if I should get some of these mats before my F80 arrives.

Some outstanding garages in this thread! Keep 'em coming.









This is a better shot of the floor coating:

Thanks. Yeah, I did the epoxy floor myself and it's consumer grade stuff (Rustoleum Pro), so I didn't want to risk hot tire pickup. They are serving the "decor and target when parking" role rather well, too. I may eventually do the entire floor in tiles.

Ha...ha... The fans or for the blazing heat and humidity in Central FL. I did it myself. I hoping to get a 25 ft. Moduline or Lista cabinet array soon.

This I can relate to!

You guys with full-on garages are too lucky and I envy you all. I live downtown Chicago and my current Z4 and future SO M4 will reside underground in my condo car park with all the other unfortunate car owners.
