It is the Jalopnik staff’s unanimous opinion that you should buy a BMW Z3. But which Z3? There are so many. I’m here to tell you! It is this Z3, a 1997 Z3 in green. Did I mention it’s a lifted Z3 on big ol’ Jeep Wrangler-sized tires? Because it is!
The swapped-in, high-mileage M50 straight-six engine in our racing team’s BMW E30 decided that around 225,000 miles were enough for one of its rods. It ejected said rod onto the track as we got to Hour 19 of the 24-hour Lucky Dog Racing League race, popping a hole in the engine block. That was it. We were done.
BMW got comfortable and sales have slipped behind the surging growth of Mercedes, so now BMW thinks this is not good. It’s pretty safe to say that its new plan of launching a hellstorm of 40 new models and variants over the next two years is the closest we’ll ever get to desperation from a German automaker.
For years Chelsea DeNofa has been one of the great underdogs in American drifting. He’d either outdrive other more expensive, more powerful cars with his little BMW 3 Series or blow up trying. Now he’s under the wing of one of the most professional teams in Formula Drift, at the wheel of a new Ford Mustang. Team…
Finally some fun news out of BMW: two workers reportedly caused vehicle production to temporarily shut down after passing out from being both too stoned and too drunk at work.
Remember two years ago, when BMW came out with that track-ready, water-injected BMW M4 GTS concept car? And then they actually produced it, and put a huge price tag on the thing? Well, we have some lovely photos of the car that you can view for a grand total of: free.
Nicky Catsburg is the second car to get a face-full of tire wall at the 12 Hours of Sebring. His No. 24 BMW M6 GTLM brake pedal went to the floor, and he wasn’t able to slow down for an upcoming turn on the back side of the track. Something broke.
You’re at a car thing, wearing your “I Heart LSD” shirt and proudly displaying your alternator tattoo. You look over the assembled Mustangs, 240SXs and M3s when BLAMMO you’re run over after wandering into the street not paying attention. In your dying breath you look up at the car that crushed you and utter “wow that…
Hi there. You may find yourself on this website because you enjoy motoring and sometimes that motoring may require an open top vehicle. A Mazda Miata is a good and fine car, but it is not a BMW Z3 and thus is the inferior choice.
Are you living your best life? EUROTRASH E36 snow guy is. Be like him.
We enthusiasts, we love the cars. But the cars do not always love us back.
If you actually believe Tupac Shakur died.... you can now submit your information to purchase the BMW he and Suge Knight were shot up in six days before his death back in September of 1996.
Alpina stripe all the things!
I tried drawing rough renditions of some cars off the top of my head in this internet image generator based on 2,000 images of cats and accidentally opened a portal straight into nightmarish hell.
To be fair to BMW, California doesn’t usually get this much rain. Audi’s social media team isn’t here to play fair though.
The BMW 3 Series wagon is one of the best European cars you can buy for a somewhat reasonable MSRP. Now that last part is important, because I don’t know what this dealership was smoking when it decided to order this wagon and sell it for this price.
Admit it: you’ve done this at least once. Curiosity on Craigslist has led you to search for one of the internet’s most loved—some would say overhyped—used cars, the E30 BMW 3 Series from the 1980s and early ‘90s. And then you found a truly beautiful one. And then you saw that one letter at the end of its numerical…
When it comes to all-wheel-drive traction in German luxury cars, Audi’s legendary Quattro system has been proven itself by dominating rally circuits. Meanwhile, BMW’s xDrive has become a worthy challenger and a very popular option. But which system is better?
