Much of the northeast is in full winter blast mode, and for reader Tom Lawrowski, that meant it was the perfect weather for his F80-generation BMW M3. Clearly, snow removal is the best use of 444 horsepower.
The new BMW M2 is awesome and already an enthusiast favorite. The comparison of the M2 as being a “spiritual successor” to what “the M3 used to be” has been played before, but what about the E36 generation M3 that nobody really seems to care about?
The kids, they sure do like the BMW M2. Considering how popular the car is (and how it’s crazy expensive and hard to buy), it only makes sense that there’s reportedly a more powerful edition looming on the horizon.
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.
My first reaction upon experiencing a full throttle pull from the passenger seat was to mutter, “fucking hell…”, and then burst out laughing.
These days, it seems that F1 is raced exclusively by genetically engineered, corporately sponsored, superhumans. Look at Lewis Hamilton and tell me he wasn’t designed in a lab in some sub-basement of McLaren. All of the top tier boys got a Nomex onesie before they could walk, and their stroller had a HANS device. The…
With the success of the hybrid electric i3 and i8 models, we know BMW is looking to spread out their newfound knowledge to their entire range. According to one report, it may go to a very unexpected place: the next BMW M3. Think four-door i8, maybe?
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.…
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 formula is correct with this bawdy German duo. A well balanced chassis, drive to the rear wheels, and most importantly a potent V8 motor up front. Only thing missing was a sinuous stretch of tarmac, which we just so happened to find.
So I recently took a trip to New Orleans for my birthday and St. Patrick's day, but that has little relevance to the story. Where we shall begin is when my girlfriend and I left New Orleans, we did not return home to Philadelphia, no we flew to Orlando to meet a gentleman, term used very loosely, about a car. This…
Did I hear that someone is looking to buy a car? Yes?
I met up with Road & Track's own Sam Smith and Robin Warner at Mid-Ohio, my home track for club races and a place where two of the Armco barriers in "Thunder Valley" have my name on the purchase order. Sam was there to drive a real unicorn—a genuine Hartge-built Group A racing E30 M3. Robin and I were there to hold…
Every time I get together with a handful of distant friends and talk about 90s BMWs, I have the same compulsion. It isn't I need an old BMW, it's weirder: I need to scan the amazing BMW brochures from my fanboy youth.
Top Gun. Top dog. The best of the best. That's how I would describe the M3 CSL version of the E46 BMW M3. This Euro-only special edition dropped the weight and added the paddle-shift SMG transmission to make a great car even better.
The BMW E46 M3. Ultimate Driving Machine. Perfection on Wheels. DudeBro! It's like, the best car ever. That's what they say. But if I'm honest, the last one I drove was a convertible, on rims, equipped with SMG, and it sucked really hard. Everyone says these things are incredible, was I missing something? So, when JF…
Let me just get that out of the way right at the start. Now allow me to explain how I arrived at that conclusion.
Miami /Munich. The BMW Art Car by Jeff Koons will celebrate its North American premiere and will be exhibited in a pavilion in the Botanical Garden next to the fair.
