The Istanbul architect Can Eyilik prefers to share his passion for BMW M with friends and fellow petrolheads. So it’s no wonder that he doesn't just park his three BMW M3 models in a dingy garage. For the interior designer, it made perfect sense to create a space where the culture of driving could come alive. DRIVEN34 is the name he gave this special place. The 34 stands for the number plate code of Istanbul and ‘driven’ for driving pleasure, because Eyilik’s BMW M3s are not simply exhibits, but vehicles that are regularly used. DRIVEN34 is simply the starting point for trips with friends.

A LIVING M3 COLLECTION.

Eyilik has a choice of three iconic M3s, beginning with his first generation BMW M3 E30 in Henna Red, affectionately called ‘Henna’. ‘Bridget’, his BMW M3 GT in British Racing Green, is the only example of this extremely rare M automobile to be found in Turkey. Eyilik dreamed and pursued it for more than a decade before it finally became a permanent fixture in his garage. The most powerful M3 in his collection is the BMW M3 CSL (E46), which has an engine sound that Eyilik loves and regularly lets rip on track days.

ON THE HEELS OF THE NEXT M3.

If you think Eyilik has fulfilled his dreams and is content with what he has, you’re very much mistaken. He is an M3 enthusiast through and through, and his hunger for more remains. Eyilik‘s next goal: a BMW M3 GTS (E92), which – if he secures one – will take the total number in Turkey to three.
