It was streets ahead of its time at launch and maintains an ageless glow to this day, yet a glance at the calendar reveals the disarming truth: 25 years have passed since the BMW 8 Series was presented to the world at large for the first time. The car’s international fan community duly came together last weekend at its Bavarian birthplace to celebrate the anniversary, with events including a spectacular parade of 120 cars at the BMW Group headquarters highlighting their collective adoration of … CONTINUED
As a college student on a tight budget, Mike was tired of dumping time and money into repairs for his 1965 Ford Mustang. One day, then, he traipsed down to the local used car lot to have a look at a Datsun B210 he’d seen for sale. The Datsun was a fine little car, but on the same lot sat a red BMW 2002. Out of curiosity more than anything else, Mike took it for a test drive. That was all it took for … CONTINUED
We bring you to the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2014.
As soon as I found out about this Brazzeltag – I just knew I would HAVE to go! I recruited two of my friends and off we went. The weather was a little bit touch and go – but the day was a good one, even if we did get wet a few times.
For those of you who don’t know… Speyer is home of the Sinsheim Technik Museum. They actually have a larger museum 20 minutes up the Autobahn in in Sinsheim. Think of … CONTINUED

Catch our coverage from the 2014 Techno Classica Essen.
There is a reason why I LOVE attending the Techno Classic in Essen… it’s all the cool classic cars! Yup, the quality of the cars on display here and that fact that all the major German car makers are here – at the factory level, makes this show a MUST SEE event each year. It’s the worlds largest classic car show(so says Siha, the organizers) held in Europe. I believe it. I always have … CONTINUED
BIMMERPOST tours the National Auto Museum of Italy, in Turin.
I had read so many good things about this mega museum and it did not disappoint! After the Geneva Auto Show, I headed South to this museum(and to a few other museums) thru Monte Blanc tunnel. That tunnel crossing was the most I have ever paid for a toll, 43 euros one way! But there really isn’t any other way around that mountain range.
I was really impressed with this museum! I think it’s … CONTINUED

This Museum is in the sleepy town of STAVELOT. The Spa Francorchamps race track is down the road from here a few kilometers. I guess my words of wisdom would be not to expect much. The museum is decent, but it is small and on the grounds of an old Abbey. There are also a few other museums located in upstairs in the Abbey. One of which is a puppet museum. Needless to say I did not visit it.
When my GPS guided me into … CONTINUED
