The M3POST vs. MBWORLD Royal Purple Forum Wars episode has just aired. The race pitted M3POST member Drake Kemper in his E92 M3 versus his opponent in a C63 AMG and included a quarter mile run, an autocross run, and a slalom. We won’t spoil the results for you, so see inside.
What can you say, both the M3 GTS and Frozen Black M3 are unique, rare and destined classic spinoffs of the BMW M3. Its a rare thing to have them together at the same time, and moreso when behind the lens of a professional photographer. Tomirriphotography brings us his breathtaking photos, enjoy!
Several M3POST members participated in the fabulous 3-day M-School @ Nurburgring experience this week. Here is a journal from two members detailing their 3 day experience. Thanks to them, the entire community can enjoy the experience a bit vicariously. Check out the great journal inside.
BMW Performance Parts Manager Eric Riehle recently took questions from United BMW gathered from Bimmerpost members. On video, he addresses BMW Performance plans for limited slip differential, lease residualization program, new electronic performance steering wheel, M3 performance parts, and N54/N55 performance power kits. Check out the interview inside.
The Smoking Tire undertakes a review of the E92 M3 Competition (ZCP) model and echoes what we’ve all heard before - that the M3 remains the benchmark for cars in its segment. Along with the beautiful scenery in this video review, Farah makes some great points which echoes why we and our M3 members all love the M3.
Here’s the first great look at an alpine white 1M coupe next to a mineral white M3 coupe. Both are beautiful in their own way, with the 1M coupe taking on a boxier, more overtly aggressive look, while the M3’s lines and bulges are sleeker and more discrete. One thing we’re sure of - the owners of each love their car!
Just in, here are some brand new spy shots of the BMW Lightweight E90 M3 said to be called M3 EVO. Back in April, BMW teased us with a first surprise appearance of this car in Garching. Thanks to Klier and rususlikwho caught this car at the Nürburgring, we can now share another glimpse at this car.
Unlike the earlier spotting, this test car looks exactly like what has been presented in Garching. Dedicated front spoiler lip and rear spoiler supposedly made from some lightweight material, 6-piston lightweight brakes (more info), and a unique color what we suppose is a non-metallic Interlagos Blue.
The M3 EVO is said to sit between a regular E9x M3 and the extreme M3 GTS, meaning the M3 EVO will retain to seat … CONTINUED
Martino Auto Concepts and Active Autowerke have teamed up to produce two custom M3s. The first has been completed and it’s a stunner! Featuring an eye catching Lamborghini Verde Ithaca Pearl Green paint, the first of the two M3s features plenty of both “go” and “show.”
The power comes from AA’s E9X M3 Stage II supercharger kit with methanol injection kit, full exhaust system, and custom tune. Suspension and brakes are now a KW V3 coilover system and a StopTech Trophy Big Brake Kit in matching Vede Ithaca Green. Custom bodywork features a widebody quarter panel conversion, Lamborghini Verde Ithaca pearl green, dry carbon fiber roof, host of Vorsteiner body kit components, a roll cage, and custom headlights (featuring real carbon fiber … CONTINUED
An E91 M3 Touring was never in the cards for this generation of M3s, but that hasn’t stopped wagon fans from undertaking their own custom conversions. We previously featured an M3POST member’s full E91 M3 custom build (both mechanicals and bodywork), but here’s yet another one.
This build only features cosmetics (save for the quad exhaust), but it’s an impressive build nevertheless. The exterior has custom built in the M3 style. But it doesn’t end there. The exterior also features a matte “frozen” black finish, much like the special edition M3s.
