Your Ridiculously Awesome BMW E9 3.0 CSL Wallpaper Is Here

This is an amazing color for a vintage BMW, and while I'm not much of a fan pin striping/racing stripes, I can forgive the use here. I would really like to have seen exactly what the entirety of the vehicle looks like. » 9/27/14 5:00pm 9/27/14 5:00pm

Buy This Not That: Shark Nosed BMW 3.0CS For $13k

Imagine for a minute that you have $15k budgeted for your next daily driver. You can pickup a new Nissan Versa, a three year old Honda Civic or a 10 year old BMW 3-series...but don't be an idiot. Buy this BMW 3.0CS instead. » 7/15/14 12:53pm 7/15/14 12:53pm

It's a Family Affair

Spotted at the BMW Museum, these five cars span a good portion of the company's race history. While it's easy to see a family resemblance, every car has its own unique features. We'll take one of each. (Photo Credit: Motoyen) » 1/29/11 10:00am 1/29/11 10:00am
