Come at the king, you best not miss. The BMW 3 Series has been the Omar of the sports sedan game for three decades now, and while its competition is tougher and better than ever, it’s still the reigning champion. What do you need to know before you buy a 3 Series? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in…
America’s auto industry posted marginal losses in the month of August, while the daily sales rate and seasonally adjusted annualized rate soared. In August 2014, U.S. auto sales figures actually included sales from September’s high-volume Labour Day weekend.
In 36 hours, this BMW E36 went from a $200 junkyard special to a fully functional drift car, going sideways on track. Yes it has a bullet hole from a drive by shooting. Here’s how it all happened.
BMW Hungary gave me a brown diesel wagon so I can go the Nürburgring 24 without dying in my Autobianchi on the Autobahn. A week later, I gave back the car with an additional 1,636 miles on the clock, and a heavy heart.
Happy 40th birthday, BMW 3 series. In lieu of cake, we’re going to celebrate the best production models in your history.
The BMW 3 Series facelift is due out in 2015, and although no spectacular changes in design are to be expected, technically the facelifted high-seller has changed a lot.
The 1984-1991 BMW 3-Series has become an auto-cultural flashpoint. From the rise in interest in (and value of) the E30 M3, to the hoards of E30s descending like boxy locusts on every 24 Hours of LeMons event, to Travis's recent racetrack dalliance in a new 3-Series spec series. If ever a car begged for a documentary,…
The last time I drove the F30 BMW 3-Series, it was the top dog 335i with the sport package. I didn't love it and thought that BMW might have lost some of that sport sedan special sauce. But the baby 320i is a different story, and it's superb.
Welcome to Used Car Face Off, where we find two similar or similarly priced used cars and ask you which one you would buy. Choose wisely!
Before landing a gig at Top Gear, Richard Hammond worked for Motor Week, and he took the time to explain why you shouldn't buy a now-classic E46 BMW 3er.
What if I told you there's a new, RWD, German sedan with a manual transmission, sport-tuned suspension, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, and 18-inch wheels that you could get for $34,745 with the destination? Here's the six-letter order code you need to get just that.
You missed out on the massive BMW E30 M3 appreciation-fest of the 2000s — during which prices catapulted upward, by percentage, more than the Elephant Man's eye teeth. But with prices flattening, perhaps just temporarily, now may be the best time to secure your piece of Bayerische Motoren history. Ten years on, mark…
There are a lot of reasons you should read the New York Times Magazine profile of nascent R&B superstar Frank Ocean. It gives some great insights into the creative process, decisiveness, and personal history of the man behind the best album of 2012, Channel Orange. (If you think differently, you're wrong.)
After yesterday's leaked image, BMW has given us all the details about the new 3-Series Gran Turismo they will officially present in Geneva next month. And not only does it look better than I first thought, but also packs BMW's first active spoiler and some rather impressive luggage space.
Welcome to Sunday Matinee, where we highlight classic car reviews or other longer videos I find on YouTube. Kick back and enjoy this blast from the past.
It's been a real juicy peach of a year for sports cars. And I don't just mean the ones that feel like you're driving with oven mitts on. I mean the ones that have the crackly goodness a sports car should have.
While it seems like BMW is struggling a bit with its polar bear saving "i" sub-brand, it is worth knowing that they started experimenting with electric power around the same time Subaru introduced it's first all-wheel drive car.
