On BAT (because I am a masochist who want to read what I cannot have.) Someone just bid $129 K for a 2006 BMW E46 competition package with 9000 miles. I hope it is a fat finger mistake because I can see 30-40k at most.
One of the coolest parts about doing research for my posts are the side topics I learn about as I write. When I was gathering info to answer a question regarding enclosed motorcycle chains, there were two technical developments that I didn’t have time or space to fully describe. But they were so interesting, I wanted…
That liftback tho.
As I have done in the past four years, I spent the first weekend of November out at Portland International Raceway shooting for Audi Club Northwest’s Quattrofest event. While it was wasn’t quite a rainy as the last few years, it was a little bit nippier in the morning.
Stupid me did not check that my car didn’t have the split folding seats (a.k.a. BMW Through Load System) before buying it...
I’m up to the front end of the E21 now... there’s not too much major patching left to do. I welded in the new lower rad support last night and grafted on the old rad saddles.
Fort Wayne, Indiana’s Kelly Nikolic, 27, is a lot of things: Independent, sharp-witted, stylish. And her passion in life is cars. She tunes them, races them, modifies them, and details them, but there’s one thing she just won’t do: Girl Stickers.
So excited for the new M8 GTE. It’s as if they locked a M6 GT3 and M4 DTM away in a room for an undisclosed amount of time, then a year later came out with this. (it looks awesome)
...slash Sunday drive.
A few months ago, while the rest of the automotive world was glued to their streaming devices watching the Goodwood Festival of Speed, I was walking around the hills of Detroit’s Camp Dearborn for the Battle of the Brits.
There’s an M-Performance version of the X3, but not of the 3-series wagon. I mean, 355 horsepower in the wagon would be pretty cool, but nah, here’s your SUV. Not that it really makes a difference in my life, because I can’t afford either.
It was the 10th annual Classic BMW show in Woodley Park here in The Valley this past Saturday. So, I took a bunch of pictures. Most of the cars all look the same to me, but there were definitely some interesting standouts. And lots of orange ones. I love orange cars and BMW has a good tradition with orange.
Haven’t posted in a while, and completely forgot to introduce the latest leap down the BMW rabbithole. Prices on the ignominious US E36 M3 seemed to be just past the bottoming-out point, and I thought I could nearly break even by swapping the E46 330i for the M3. I definitely didn’t break even on the swap, but on the…
it’s like they new upfront this one was going to be a headache. You’re going to need this.
535i auto, paint though is crap. rear bumper showing surface rust.
