I love driving—and occasionally fixing—my 32-year-old BMW. The various flaws and quirks it has picked up over the decades are part of its charm, its character. But like any old car owner I often wonder what it was like when it was brand new, shining and pristine. One Jalopnik reader just found out by buying a 2006 BMW…
Last place? No problem. No problem at all.
I seem to have an affinity for BMW wagons. Well alright, who am I kidding? Don’t we all? It’s a formula that proves to be flawless. It’s a driver’s car that doubles as a doer’s car. It’ll carry your small furniture, haul your kids to school, round up all your gear for a road trip and still draw a crowd at a car meet.…
The Scion FR-S was built to excite the kinds of people that make a holy pilgrimage to SEMA every year and never leave the house without their Hot Import Nights wristband - the same people that would soil themselves when realizing that this supercharged BMW M3 could've been purchased for less money.
Welcome Jalopnik readers to a new segment where, I, as your intrepid reviewer get ten minutes to drive three cars and make some sort of meaningful, ideally insightful and maybe even witty, comparison.
Surely there is some scenario more ripe for automotive disaster than a group of BMW drivers filming themselves driving on Russian Roads, but we're having a hard time dreaming it up at the moment.
We've heard about how a Nissan GT-R will outpace just about anything short of a Veyron and will make a Schumacher out of any regular Joe, but what do we really have to go by other than the reports of some ham-fisted journalists and a no-corners drag race?
Pro Drifter (yes, that's a thing) Charles NG gets seriously sideways in this 570-hp supercharged BMW E46 M3. Well, if you give the guys tire and an empty track what did you expect would happen?
Take a moment to listen to the sonorous beauty that is the E46 BMW M3 owned by "Obioban" from M3Forum. Mmm, I think I just had an auralgasm. [via jyx]
To the untrained eye this is nothing but 10% of a car. To the petrolhead eye, however, it’s a glint of power bulge beneath which lurks something magnificent.
The first-generation BMW M Coupe is a raw, angry sort of beast, the kind of asylum-think car we cannot help but love. It's a machine devoted solely to the art of being bonkers. Let's take a look at its credentials.
One week ago, I rediscovered pictures I took inside BMW's closed-to-the-public motorsport museum. Those images were four years old, however, and their pron was limited. Now someone has YouTubed an off-the-cuff video tour of the same building. McLaren overload, anyone?
I was at a red light today in the left lane. I had about a quarter mile before I entered the freeway on my right. As I was about to switch lanes, a silver 350Z banged past me. I of course floored it and got behind him. The on ramp is nice, tight 270 degree beaut. Tight enough that above 35 mph your tires squeal. On…
It's becoming Maximum BMW day (well, half-day), but this chromed M3 deserved mentioning, though it's apparently been kicking around for a couple of years. Canadians have known about the shiny, shiny 2002 widebody E46 for a while (the guy's from Toronto). It was first shown at SEMA 2004 and was a cover car for Max Power…
