We figured this week was as good a time as ever to profile Jason Kwan as he’s just become a Client Advisor for both the BMW and MINI new car divisions. Jason first started out with a career in MINI and before long was awarded the elite status of MINI Ace, as one of Canada’s top MINI Client Advisors in 2010. Soon after, he joined us at Endras BMW and was granted the opportunity to develop his repertoire further with BMW products in addition to MINI. Taking on both will make a very exciting 2012 for him as he enjoys facing challenges head on.
His current vehicle of choice is a Le Mans Blue with a hint of black. We’re talking about a stunning 2011 BMW 135i M Sport pictured off to the side. Instead of opting for an uninspiring set of steel wheels as winter tires, Jason has opted for a custom 18” matte black sport originally taken from a 335d. Take it from us that it looks absolutely beautiful in the flesh. As far as modifications go, Jason loves the bellow of an exhaust and thus has disabled the Active Exhaust leaving the 135i’s 300 horses bellowing at maximum capacity at all times. However, Jason will soon be going the full mile as a full BMW performance exhaust install lurks on the horizon.
When asked about his favourite memories in the little blue coupe he told us about roaring up and down some of Ontario’s country roads near his family home in London, Ontario. He doesn’t make it out to the track often, but visiting friends and family in the countryside are great when they have extra long driveways. Thanks to the Dual Clutch Transmission equipped in his 135i, he can fully enjoy launch control on private property. But here in the city, cruising from Yonge Street via Rosedale Valley all the way to the Don Valley Parkway is one of his favourite local spots. “It’s beautiful there at any time of the year. Especially in the fall when the leaves are changing colours and starting to pile up at the side of the road, gentle curves through a hilly neighbourhood that lead to a dip under an overpass, only to put the power down on Bayview Ave, and thrust yourself into very tight multiple turns and ramps that lead onto Don Valley Parkway North…”
When Jason finds a sliver of time between selling BMWs and MINI’s, he spends his time trying to come up with solutions to everyday’s most common problems. You see, Jason has had an inconsolable urge to invent a lasting product that can one day change the world. What drives Jason to success is the enjoyment he receives from “being a part of the most dynamic company in the automotive industry in addition to selling products designed to be the best machine it can be as opposed to merely functional.” Looking ahead, Jason says he’ll continue to enjoy “working with customers to successfully find their perfect vehicle not just for now, but in their future as well.” Don’t worry Jason, as a result of your hard work, you may just be living your dream: changing the world, one customer at a time. We wish Jason the best of luck and another successful year of sales!
