Nico DeMattia
My very first car was an E36 BMW 328i and I’ve been hooked on the brand ever since. My passion has grown even stronger throughout the years and now I basically have the dream job of any car enthusiast — to drive cars and write about my experiences. I’ve seen some pretty crazy things, been on some incredible and dangerous adventures and met some really great people during my time. Oh, and driven some amazing cars. I’m a bigger fan of classic cars than new ones, especially BMWs and the quirkier the better. Cars that are weird, unusual or unwanted, those are the cars I like. I’m the kind of guy that’d rather drive an E30 Touring than a new M3. Though I’d never otherwise turn down a drive in the latter, of course. I also love bringing old, worn down cars back to life. But I’ve always been a car enthusiast in general and can and will talk to anyone about any kind of car for any amount of time. Start talking cars with me and you’d better have an unacceptable amount of time to talk, because I won’t shut up.
