Tuning trends come and go. Aram fondly remembers his VW Golf IV with gullwing doors: "That was 12 years ago - I was as proud as an oskar. Today, I wouldn't dare drive it on the road," he says, laughing. His current baby: a quad bike created in cooperation with the EXEET company from a Kawasaki Z1000 - the Black Bull Drive and Style Edition. "I've always had the dream of driving something that no one else drives," he tells Aram proudly. And the result is impressive: 150 hp, 220 km/h, the quarter mile (402m) in 10.76 seconds.
Despite being street legal, the quad is rarely moved. "That's pure self-protection," says Aram with a wink and admits, "I really have to rein myself in there - I have family." Family is important; Sunday is family day, reserved for wife Jessica and kids Aileen and Levin. Aram proudly wears the names of both children tattooed on his forearms.
Despite family obligations, sleeping in is not something Aram knows. "I'm always on the go," he says. And the hard work is paying off: Today, footballers like Marco Reus, Roman Neustädter and Julian Draxler are among his customers.
If money were no longer an issue at some point, he'd like to launch his own vehicle: "A cross between an Audi R8 and a Lamborghini would be a dream."
