Passion moves mountains when it becomes a profession. Heinz Raab’s love for BMW has been pounding in his heart for several decades.
Since childhood, he has been fascinated by BMW and regularly attended national and international BMW meetings with his dad.
He learned the craft of restoring and repairing BMW engines such as the BMW M10, BMW M20, BMW M30, and BMW M50 at BMW in the 80s.
Bavarian car craftmanship has always been Heinz Raab’s passion. With his master craftsman’s diploma in the 80s, he founded his own workshop where he took care of motor vehicle repairs and gradually moved towards tuning and motorsport projects.
Beyond the borders of Bavarian and Swabia, the KW performance partner Raab Automotive established its name among BMW drivers and enthusiasts.
It doesn’t matter whether BMW enthusiasts need help with motorsport projects, repair, restoration, or tuning for their new car or for a legendary vintage or young classic BMW car. They even have expertise regarding air-cooled Porsche.
KW retail partners for years
Raab Automotive has taken care of all customer concerns for more than 30 years. At Raab Automotive, they specialize in car tuning, motorsport retrofitting, track day projects, classic and vintage car restoration.
Classic and vintage cars are also attractive to our retail partner. This is why he further expanded the business unit “Raab Classics.” A short time ago, “Raab Lack Scuderia” was also created.
To become a certified KW performance partner, all retailers who sell and install KW automotive Group products must complete a multi-stage training program.
The highest retailer and service level a KW retail partner can complete is to become a certified “KW performance partner.” Raab Automotive was one of the first businesses to achieve this status.
Together with Raab Automotive, we took it one step further and developed several coilover applications for selected classic BMW automobiles, such as the BMW 2002, BMW E24, and the BMW E28. Those had the official product description “Raab Classics coilovers made by KW.“
The developed Raab Classics coilovers made by KW are independently adjustable in compression and rebound – just like our KW V3 coilover kit.
These coilovers provide the vintage BMW cars with more driving comfort, driving dynamics, driving safety, and modern handling without losing their charming character.
Heinz Raab’s top priority for over 30 years has been legal tuning, combining safe drivability with a beautiful appearance. The goal is always to ensure that every BMW and any other automobile offers the best driving dynamics, driving comfort, and driving pleasure.
