Salivating over the description of the work done to today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe E46 is like reading Penthouse Forum—it’s almost to good to be true. Let’s see if this M wagon’s price also has you frothing.
Fast acting Houston-area BMW enthusiast Cody W. Crochet was able to save all his cars from the floods brought by Hurricane Harvey using landscaping bricks to raise his garaged red E36 M3 up out of rising waters. Here’s how he carefully lowered that car back down—brick by brick, corner by corner.
After about two weeks of searching and a lot of sad tweets, Canadian esports commentator Matthew Trivett found the custom BMW E46 M3 GT3 race car he said was stolen in Nova Scotia. He tweeted that he got the car back Wednesday, not in perfect condition and minus about $15,000 in spare parts and tools.
Oh, Alfa. You’re like some beautiful and brilliant but wildly self-destructive friend who can’t seem to ever let themselves succeed. They ace a job interview, and then show up for the first day of work drunk and with taquito vomit down their shirt. That’s sort of how I feel about the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio…
Perhaps it’s lack of discipline, or lack of taste, or lack of culture, or lack of understanding, or even lack of respect, but out of a field of over a hundred cars, the best damn thing about my Saturday afternoon at the fifth Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance was an E30 M3.
While fueling the need for cars with more horsepower, BMW’s M-division seems to have backed itself into a corner when it comes to offering a variety of transmissions. In a recent interview, a BMW exec indicated that the days are numbered for manual and DCT gearboxes.
The seller of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Pandem-bodied 325it says it’s an awesome STANCE beauty. We’ll take a stance on its price, one way or another.
Everyone dreams of buying that childhood dream car for cheap on Craigslist through the magical power of depreciation. But as we’ve seen time and time again, purchase price is only one small part of the equation.
Everyone wants an E30, but people just seem to have the E36. They tune it, they race it, they engine swap it. But no one loves it. No one truly wants the E36. Will that ever change?
While Hurricane Matthew was raging, you may have seen some delightful pictures on the internet of a lovely BMW E30 M3 sitting, warm and safe, inside someone’s house, to better be protected from the storm. Those photos weren’t staged. There actually was a guy who drove his car into his living room to protect it, and we…
No matter how you feel about the BMW M3s of the 1990s—especially if you’re in the U.S., since Europe got the better version—there’s no debate that the car is charming. Doesn’t that shiny, beautiful blue just put a smile on your face?
The driver of this Setra Motorsport BMW M3-R seems pretty confused when he notices something’s missing.
Why yes, I have spent hours each day ogling that giant gallery of BMW M3s we posted earlier this week. Don’t judge me. But it’s also got me wondering this: just how cheaply could one pick up an E30 M3 if they wanted?
Like Invisible Touch, the M3, a vehicle made by the Bavarian Motor Works company of West Germany, turns 30 this year. I would argue that it has aged better than that album, and this massive photo gallery of M3s—including weird-ass one-offs—is proof of that.
Some say the BMW M3 of the 1990s was a bit of a crap can, impure and unworthy of the “///M” badge. I happen to think it’s a handsome looking car but any way you slice it, there’s no denying the European spec version was superior. This video breaks down how.
Last place? No problem. No problem at all.
