Christian Stampfer (Founder, Editor)

My enthusiasm for the automotive world started about six months before I was even born. In summer 1984, my father picked up a new BMW 318i (E30) at the BMW plant in Munich. For the next 15 years the BMW became my permanent companion and I have spent my entire childhood and youth in the backseat or passenger seat of the BMW 318i.

ChrisX3I started writing about cars and technology back in 2009 as a close friend of mine asked me to join his editorial team and to serve as the European Editor for his new online publication. Since then I am writing articles for the leading US magazine about diesel-powered cars, The Diesel Driver. The magazine focuses on the experience of owning and driving a diesel powered automobile.

Looking back at my experiences over the past five years I decided in 2015 to launch my own automotive blog focusing on the obsession of driving cars, whether they are hybrids, diesels or electric cars. With this Blog I would like to share my impressions and the amazing joy of driving and owning a car. I also enjoyed a bunch of road trips in Europe and in the United States on some of the most beautiful roads on the planet, may it be the famous Pacific Coast Highway 1 in California or the Stilfser Joch (Stelvio) in Italy. These unique driving experiences deserve it to be shared.
