"Git'r done!"

Started working at BimmerWorld
2012

Most rewarding part of working at BimmerWorld
The community and the lack of bureaucracy. We're privately owned!

Top 3 favorite BMWs
2002, E46 touring, and the F80 M3 sedan, which is fantastic!

Current BMWs owned
E46 wagon and an '89 735iL. I have a Porsche, too, but no need to hate me for it.

Dream car project
I'd like to do a 3.0L and 6-speed swap on my E46 wagon.

Favorite race track
Daytona! I love endurance racing, especially going to the 24hrs of Daytona.

Funniest moment at BimmerWorld
A certain someone in the office may have picked up a "tootsie roll," only to realize it was actually dog poo. A Caddy Shack moment in the office!

Before BimmerWorld
I used to work with Porsches and safety equipment.

Hobbies
R/C, golf, and nerdy databases and e-commerce stuff.

Random fact
I once wrecked a Honda Fast & Furious style, and now I have a half knee because of it.

Most rewarding part of working at BimmerWorld
Helping others achieve their goals with their BMWs, whether it's an all-out track/race build, getting a little more performance out of their street car or helping with a technical issue to get them back on track. Having the opportunity to develop lasting friendships and race alongside with many of our customers has been great to experience as well.

Top 3 favorite BMWs
E30 (M or Non-M), E46 M3, E92 M3

Past and current BMWs owned
Past
'95 318ti
'92 E36 325is - S52 swapped
'87 E30 325is - Has had an M50, S50, and a supercharged S50
'86 E30 325e
'85 E30 325e - Went from a beater to a 2.9L M50 stroker motor

Dream car project
I would love to build a Spec E46 race car!

Favorite race track
The full course at VIR (Virginia International Raceway).

Most fun at BimmerWorld
We had Razor scooter competitions when I worked in the warehouse. We may have done some stupid (or incredible) scooter tricks during some of the down time.

Craziest thing you've done to a BMW
I'd probably say taking on my turbo E36 project in 2006. That was before 500whp was the norm, and I did it with zero prior turbo knowledge.

Before BimmerWorld
I worked as a mechanic at an independent BMW shop, and I worked as a piano rebuilder before that.

Hobbies
Photography, racing with the BimmerLine team in ChumpCar and AER, maintaining a personal fleet of BMWs, kayaking, and fishing.

- Mark Donahue

Started working at BimmerWorld
March 2015

Most rewarding part of working at BimmerWorld
The friendships we develop with our customers and the track/racing environment we get to be a part of.

Top 3 favorite BMWs
2002 Tii Turbo, E36 M3, Alexander Calder 3.0 CSL Art Car. Actually, most of the art cars could fill that spot. Current BMWs
None currently, but I've driven a wide variety through my previous BMW experience, and I get to drive and work on the BimmerLine E36 endurance race car.

Dream car project
I'd love to have an E30 or E36 with an S85 V10 swap. Complete overkill and obnoxious, I know, but I don't care.

Favorite race track
VIR. Sure, it's technically the only one I've been too so far, but it's pretty amazing.

Best moment at BimmerWorld
My personal best/favorite moment so far was being able to help as a crew member in the 12-hour ChumpCar race in March of 2015 and having us place 2nd overall... Then getting to keep the trophy on my desk.

Before BimmerWorld
I worked at a local BMW dealership.

Hobbies
I enjoy racing, hanging out at the track, watching football, and video games.

Most rewarding part of working at BimmerWorld
Being a part of a really cool, ever-evolving industry, and meeting fellow enthusiasts at events, etc. I love BimmerWorld's mission of being the best/most committed to what we do. Our goal isn't to sell the most parts or have the cheapest prices; it's to get passionate people exactly what they need, and that's fun to be a part of.

Top 3 favorite BMWs
E30 M3, E46 M3, BimmerLine ChumpCar

Current BMWs
2001 325i, 1998 Mtech 318ti (soon to be S52 swapped)

Favorite modifications/car project
Doing an S52 swap in my 318ti and making it a fun track car.

Favorite race track
VIR's Full Course.

Funniest moment at BimmerWorld
Walking into my dark office one morning to find a coyote staring at me... A stuffed coyote! And James and Jason hiding behind the desk to witness it.

Craziest thing you've done in a BMW
Racing in the "Ice Bowl" Chumpionship at VIR. It was freezing/sleeting, and we got moved to the Patriot course due to new paving going on. I dropped a wheel off track, spun, got T-boned into the wall, bounced off, and then got hit again sending me and a crumpled mess of car into the grass. I didn't really like it.

Before BimmerWorld
I had just moved from San Diego back to my hometown in Virginia. I ran into James' dad who was a long-time family friend, and he told me BimmerWorld was looking to hire someone. Without knowing what BimmerWorld was or did, I took his advice and got a job in the office/boys club. I was the first and only girl here for a very long time - I had some major pioneering to do!

Hobbies
Attending my daughter's many sporting events, singing in the NRVCC worship band, racing in ChumpCar and AER with our BimmerLine team, kayaking, volleyball, hanging out with our three dogs.

Random fact
I hate noodles.
