German Motors Gets All Gangsta

German Motors, a SoMa body shop devoted to BMWs, Mercedes and other high-end imports, commissioned this cool mural on the side of its building.

The mural is tucked away in a tiny alleyway called Berwick (off of Harrison, between 7th and 8th), so you really have to seek it out. I'm wondering if the bear is supposed to represent California, Germany (a bear is the symbol of Berlin) or — it being so close to Folsom Street — another kind of bear.

In any case, I like how the German Motors logo looks like a gritty street tag.

I'd like to see other luxury businesses follow suit. Are you listening, Gump's?
