    If I'm not mistaken, didnt they move to Mississauga / Oakville border on Royal Windsor. If so it was a BMW dealership too, and legend has it, that the franchise was pulled. The owner used to keep some old BMWs in the showroom. a couple old 5 series, they were from the 80s, and I recall that in the early 2000. Apparently, in the basement it was a time warp of old BMW parts, and cars.


    Here is a link to an article. very weird. Its once again a car dealership -used cars now.

    Yes, exactly. It's CB&C now, they sell used higher-end cars and have a decent shop in the back too.

    Not the same dealership.

    Ciation in Oakville closed the same time Beach Auto and Northwest BMW closed. The reason was BMW wanted to move their locations and have new facilities but only promised a 2 year extension on the franchise agreement.

    A friend of mine used to periodically visit citation motors in the early 60’s. He still has several photos he made of the showroom with him standing beside two GTE’s.
    He keeps promising to drop off the pictures for me to scan. I’ll post them up for you when I get them in hand
    Regards, Robert
