BMW is adding a Competition Package this year to the options list on the 2016 M3 sedan, M4 coupe and even the convertible. Don’t get too hung up on the word “Competition,” but it actually looks like a nice appearance package with a bonus 19 horsepower.
Everybody knows the first M3, the E30, is the best M3. (Probably. Maybe.) The same people also know that you can’t afford one of those anymore, so we had to move on. Here are the new options.
The original BMW M3 comes from a time when men were men, when women were women, and the M legitimately stood for “motorsport.”
What you know of the former life of your used car is usually pretty murky, at best, especially if you’re buying it through a third party. But you do have clues – once, I found a conductor’s baton in a car I bought, and I’m pretty sure that bone in another isn’t a human femur. A man from Kent bought a BMW M3, and later…
Cadillac is going to have a hell of a time catching up to BMW, the automaker that currently holds the top spot in luxury car sales. However, with General Motors’ recent lease offer on the 464 horsepower Cadillac ATS-V, you could blitz past an M3 for about the same payment as a BMW 340i sedan.
While Alfa Romeo hasn’t quite gifted us the what-if build generator of our dreams just yet, the company has updated its US website to include a color generator and a full list of available options and features for the Giulia sports sedan. Why make a Christmas list when you could just print this out?
After too many years of crappy computer generated car stunts, practical effects are coming back. Mad Max set the tone this year and the new Mission Impossible flick is carrying the torch into the summer. Here’s a brief look behind the scenes at how Tom Cruise and Co. are bringing real driving back to the big screen.
Simon Lord was an officer in the British Army stationed in Germany when he caught the E30 M3 bug. It was 2004, and Lord cancelled an order for a brand-new E46 M3 the moment he laid eyes on a Macau Blue first-gen M3. For Lord, that car changed everything.
The BMW E30 M3 is spoken about in hushed (and not so hushed if you’re around Bill Caswell) tones throughout the automotive landscape. But why is it so revered? We decided to find out.
Except for wimps. Let’s face it: it’s loud, it will rough up a passenger almost like a race car, so only the most hardcore BMW fans will love it. Oh well. It’s not for them anyway.
Forget the three old chaps over at Top Gear, as it is clear now that our very own Chris Harris is the luckiest guy in the world. Here are two Ferraris, two Porsches, an Aston Martin, a BMW and a very special Renault to prove that.
I recently wrote about the new Cadillac CTS-V being a serious contender to the BMW M5. The CTS-V seems hell-bent on taking the M5's crown, however it has the benefit of being a few years newer and Cadillac was able to use the current M5 as a benchmark. Also this will be the third generation of the CTS-V, so…
Lots of cars have been pitched as BMW M3 killers, from Mustangs to Audis to Pontiacs (probably). They have been rarely successful, but always interesting. Which are some that everyone has forgotten?
In the "Clearance/Used" section of the BimmerWorld online store right now is a $197,000 ex-Grand Am E92 M3 Production car that ran in the GS class. Why pay somewhere like eBay to sell it when you have your own online parts store?
A car trailer was spotted carrying lots of damaged BMW M3s after the Mission Impossible 5 filming. First images and news of BMW cars being featured in the new MI 5 installment surfaced back in September when a new F80 BMW M3 was seen during a high speed car chase.
The problem with the Tail of the Dragon and the surrounding byways isn't the road — that's fantastic — it's the constant slow tourist traffic. Wait, they shut it down for a hillclimb this year? Holy crap this is awesome.
Both of these cars are BMW M3s. One is descended from the other, but other than that, it's all differences. Naturally-aspirated four versus twin-turbo six. Street tires versus wildly-cambered race rubber. A warranty, and an S14 engine that burns money and fuel in equal proportions. One won races for years, the other…
Well, not just any crossover but the 400 horsepower Porsche Macan Turbo, one which is faster than any crossover has a right to be. The good people over at EVO took a Macan Turbo and an M3 to create a highly useful piece of consumer advice.
