21-25 Main North Road Medindie
The well-shod vehicles of Adelaide (and beautiful owners) were out in force for the opening of the fresh face reveal of DB Motors (previously Krause Motors).
The site at Medindie was established in 1968, and during that time they have developed a reputation for excellence for service of premium brands such as Mercedes Benz, but without the dealership price tag. Their ability to provide to care for vehicles befitting the supercar class was also evident, with a cluster of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Audi and Lotus vehicles on hand for the celebration. Owner Tim Pitt highlighted that DB Motors is in no way limited to contemporary cars, and that the crew were highly skilled in the maintenance of all classic car types.
The menu in their beautiful and contemporary foyer lists items you’d be hard pressed to find at any other location – gym workout while you wait perhaps? Or a bash at their racing simulator? This highlights the personalised service that the brand has established over many years in the industry and reflects the changing desires of their clientele, and their commitment to transparent pricing. They are also luxury car resellers, and what better location to do so particularly if they are your regular service provider, leading up to your decision to sell?
The name change to DB Motors strengthens the identity link between the car business and their neighbouring motorcycle business, Dirt Bags, which Pitt brought to Australia from Long Beach, California. This brand is famous for custom builds, paint jobs and servicing of both production and one-of-a kind Harley Davidson motorcycles in their bright and immaculate workspace. With a number of custom bikes on display, it would be difficult to leave without ideas for future custom jobs at the forefront of your mind. So be warned – this could become a dangerous passion!
DB Motors and Dirt Bags Australia is located at 21-25 Main North Road Medindie.
