The New 1M is BMW Doing it Right

BMWBlog posted today some spy photos of the upcoming BMW 1M in typical prototype camouflage. Even with the disguise the car looks good and evident of some ///M tuning. It’s also evidence of BMW acknowledging the enthusiast community and the complaints about cars getting too big. It’s an important piece in BMW moving into the future without […]

Restored BMW 2000tii Touring

This past Thursday I was at a social for the BMW Car Club of America National Capital Chapter. Now that the weather’s getting nicer the turnout is getting larger, the more exotic/classic Bimmers are showing up. This week was one I’d never seen before: a 1972 2000tii Touring.

Every BMW 3 Series has 2,500HP…In Its Brakes

This was published on Jalopnik, and was such a cool statistic that I just had to reblog it.

According to Jalopnik: “The engineers arrived at the 2,500 HP number after measuring the car’s 60-0 […]

Today is “Celebrate My Car” Day!

So it took me until 11:30 this evening to notice that today’s date is the same as the model number of my car – 3/30 (“330″ci). So I’m declaring today “Celebrate My Car” day, and anyone else who has a 330 of any style for that matter. For anybody whose car model has a date […]

The 5 Series Touring is Still Better than the GT

From the first announcement and unveiling of the 5 Series Gran Turismo, I haven’t liked it at all. It looks like a cross between a Porsche Panamera and an X6 – in a bad way. It takes the worst elements of a bunch of different cars, and blends them into one big rolling box of […]
