A BMW-powered car won the Daytona 24 this weekend and BMW had little to nothing to do with it. Why?
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!
BMW announced it will sell you a carbon fiber, lightweight, rear-engined car. Does that sound amazing? Well, it's a motorcycle engine, and it'll just be a generator for the new i3.
Say you're out for some fun in your E46 BMW M3 and someone takes off in it. You'd freak out right? You'd want to kick that guy's ass!
It seems like CAR Magazine has managed to get some crisp images of the brand new 2014 BMW M3 before its "concept" version premiers at the Geneva Motor Show in March. While this very yellow car could be just a very good rendering, the fine folks at GT Spirit who snagged an early copy of the magazine think it's real.
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.
Every now and then, I find stuff on Craigslist that really throws me for a loop. Take this ad for a 1998 BMW 528i. Looks like a decent used car deal with the kinds of goodies we like on our BMWs — sport package, BBS wheels, manual transmission, sun roof, nice audio system and "no check engine light" on the dash.…
What sort of evil sorcery is this? Have wizards started moving into the BMW hooning business?
Like many gearheads, going indoors can sometimes be painful. "But my car's outside!" we'll whine, hopping up and down and pointing at the door, as sleet and hail beats against the house. There's a few solutions here, but not all are ideal:
There's been a lot of hate on BMW's 560 horsepower four-door coupe. Oh, they already have a four-door sedan. Oh they have too many cars in their lineup. Forget it, this M6 Gran Coupe looks amazing.
We all got a really good laugh this weekend out of the E30 3-Series BMW that crashed into a light pole, even if it did mean the very unfortunate demise of one of our favorite cars.
Today BMW officially unveiled the car formerly known as the 3-Series coupe, and it looks even better in person than it did in the photos. Behold the BMW 4 Series. Pricks never had it so good.
In the early 1970s, the extreme left wing Baader-Meinhof Gang terrorized the people of West Germany with a campaign of bombings and assassinations aimed at dismantling a capitalist system they considered no better than the Third Reich.
I don't think there's a better example of good, clean, wholesome fun than driving around an empty parking lot at speed. You can do it in any kind of car, and you can even get your friends and family involved for extra good times.
E30. 'Round about these parts, it's the answer to every question almost a much as the Miata is. And why wouldn't it be? With a combination of understated good looks, compact size and rear-wheel-drive, it's hard to go wrong with a 1980s 3-Series. It's even better in super-sexy M3 trim.
One unfortunate side effect of the increase in technology on automobiles is what has happened to engine sounds.
BMW have always produced sporty cars with a nod towards luxury, while competitor Mercedes Benz have staked their claim on luxury cars that're just a little bit sporty. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe L7 once tried to out Mercedes Mercedes, but will you find its current price to be simply outrageous?
Well, I'm glad we were able to start 2013 with an asshat BMW parking job. It just wouldn't feel right if we didn't, you know?
Depending on where you are in the world, there's a good chance that the weather outside is pretty frightful. This means most people will want to stay off the roads. But for someone with the right set of tires, and the right set of skills, snow time equals fun drifty time.
