West German BMW, Proudly Serving Fort Washington PA, Ambler PA, King of Prussia PA and Philadelphia Drivers Where We're More Than New BMW Models


West German BMW…… founded in 1967 and is currently the 2ND oldest BMW dealership in the USA.  To this day West German BMW "WG" remains under the same family name - Cesarini.  Owner, Mario P Cesarini, begin his career in 1959 as a CPA for an XXXXXX dealer in Chestnut Hill, Pa before moving to Fort Washington, Pa in 1961 to work for a Volkswagen dealership.  He then took a big gamble with a little-known car company out of Munich Germany - Bavarian Motor Werks… with great vision the BMW dealership, West German Motor Imports, Inc.  was born in 1967 in Ambler, Pennsylvania.  Back then Germany was divided by the Berlin Wall.  East Germany was controlled by communist regimes while West Germany was U.S friendly.  Munich, home of Bavarian Motor Werks was in Western Germany ….. hence the name of the dealership today, West German BMW.  As the BMW brand grew in popularity (1972 BMW Tii was the zippy little car everyone wanted) so did the dealership.  Success never waned in the way the Mario operated his business, always with the understanding that employees and customers are the most important assets a company can have.  After 53 years that same philosophy remains the cornerstone of their success. 

As time went on family began to invest in the culture that Mario established.  Having family engaged in the philosophy/culture was extremely gratifying and very important in maintaining what Mario has built over all these years. Today, finding a family owned and operated automotive dealership is extremely rare and even more so by the original founder. Like all businesses there are challenges but sticking with the philosophy that Mario instilled in his BMW dealership back in 1967 has and will always drive the WG success story.  Adapting to today's stimulating environment while maintaining the family culture is the hallmark of Mario's remarkable achievement.  That is what you have at West German BMW….  Same owner, same family and same culture that laid the foundation of their success for today and it's future.

"Three letters BMW says a lot...Two letters WG says it all"
