  1. This just sucks. From the article: The seller of these fakes says they fit pretty much newer BMW’s built from 2008 until today, starting with the BMW 7 Series and ending with the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer. Last time we checked, there’s no such thing as an BMW M2 AT, but we could be wrong on that one! Pictures and full article - Fake BMW M Brake Caliper Covers .
  2. M3 CSL On Sale For €109,500

    Dreaming for sure.
  3. WOW From the article: A very appealing 2003 BMW M3 CSL is listed on a German website for a cool €109,500. Considered by many as being one of the most desirable BMWs ever made, the M3 CSL (Coupe Sport Lightweight) of the E46 generation was built in a limited series of 1,383 units and it was more than 110 kg (243 lbs) lighter than the regular M3. 15 pictures and full article .
  4. Some nice E46's showed up. From the article: While snowstorms and sub-zero temperatures have been affecting the northern hemisphere, down in South Africa they’ve been basking in 30-degree climes. And what better way to enjoy the African summer than by hosting the country’s largest BMW gathering. Thanks to our buddy Divio we have these awesome pictures from the event organized by Beemer.co.za that took place in Johannesburg, where more than 700 BMWs – young and old, stock and modified – were in attendance.The BMW force is strong in this part of the world. Check out the video to see the 700 BMWs pack the rooftop of a shopping center in the country’s biggest city. 24 pictures and video in the gallery .
  5. I vote for not crushing but giving the car to a true car enthusiast.
  6. Ouch, this would hurt. This poor E46 M3 was part of the group. from the article: Police in Ireland has seized 18 high-powered BMWs after detecting these where registered with smaller engines to avoid the higher taxes. 3 pictures and full artcile .
  7. from the article: Police in New Zealand used a stone to smash the window of a car that tumbled into the water at an Auckand wharf Tuesday, dragging the trapped motorist out of the sinking vehicle and lifting her to safety. 8 pictures and video in the gallery .
  8. Not sure what to think of this setup? from the article: This is a very odd thing, so much so that we are genuinely at a loss as to whether or not we hate it or love it. 4 pictures and video in the gallery .
  9. from the press release: As well as further enhancing the muscular athleticism of the BMW M3 and BMW M4, the main benefit of the BMW M Performance aerodynamic components for these high-performance sports cars can be found in further improvements to airflow at high speed. Customers can choose from a selection of items including add-on parts in carbon for the side sections of the front bumper, a front attachment made from polyurethane (PUR), a carbon rear diffuser and a carbon rear spoiler. PUR is also used for the side skirt attachments and a rear spoiler for the BMW M3. In addition, tri-colour side decals with “M Performance” lettering are available for the Sedan, Coupe and Convertible. 16 pictures and full press release .
  10. Mission Impossible 5 Trashed F80 BMW M3 cars from the article: A truck chock-full with more than half a dozen damaged BMW M3s…or M3 F80 clones, believed to have been used for the upcoming movie Mission: Impossible 5, was photographed in Spain. 9 pictures and video in the gallery .
  11. We all knew the E63 is faster but now we see by how much. 5 pictures and video from the article: Rolling race featuring BMW M3 F80 vs Mercedes E63 V8 BiTurbo Performance Package.
  12. BMW E36 M3 Engine in a 1971 Datsun 240Z

    That is simply awesome.
  13. I wonder how much this car weighs? from the article: This 1971 Datsun 240Z has had an engine and transmission swap from a 1995 BMW M3. We like that it stays true to the straight-6 layout, but this is definitely the first we have seen with this combo. Find it here on Craigslist in Georgia, where the seller says he has invested $18k but includes no purchase price. 5 pictures and full article .
  14. Not really a Limerock edition but looks like one Personally I am not into bright colors but this looks pretty good. from the article: It was July 2012 when BMW launched the M3 Coupe Lime Rock Park Edition and now a dealer in Dallas is reiterating the limited-run model with a one-off M4 Limerock. It's misleadingly labeled as a special edition but in reality anyone can get the car in the exact same configuration. 15 pictures and full article .
  15. Love it, from press release: The arrival of the new BMW M4 Convertible (fuel consumption combined: 9.1–8.7 l/100 km [31–32.5 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 213–203 g/km) sees BMW M GmbH making another alluring addition to its legendary high-performance sports car line-up. The new M4 Convertible replicates the performance figures of the new BMW M3 Sedan (fuel consumption combined: 8.8–8.3 l/100 km [32.1–34.0 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 204–194 g/km) and the new BMW M4 Coupe (fuel consumption combined: 8.8–8.3 l/100 km [32.1–34.0 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 204–194 g/km), but emphasises its stylish and distinctive appearance through its individual character and places the fascination of sporty and dynamic open-top driving at centre stage. The new model finds BMW M GmbH drawing inspiration from a long tradition: BMW’s high-performance sports car for track and road is entering its fifth generation in open-top form with this new chapter in its history headed “M4 Convertible”. 240 pictures, video, and full press release .
