Fresh from a clean sweep of German Touring Car Masters (DTM) titles in 2012, the BMW M3 has continued to power from one victory to the next again this season.

Dyno shootout by Alekshop:
From the time Dinan and RD Sport each introduced their 4.6L stroker motors, it’s always been our dream to have a dyno shootout to see how they would match up against each other. Both companies make 4.6 liter stroker motors, but each took a slightly different approach in their design. Dinan chose to design a shorter stroke and bigger bore, while RD Sport chose to design a longer stroke and slightly smaller bore. The shorter stroke approach gives the Dinan stroker a … CONTINUED

Petrolicious presents this video feature on a BMW E30 M3.
There are no substitutes for an E30 M3, and for Gabor Mester, no ordinary M3 would cut it. Gabor had his heart set on the specific M3 that started him down the path of BMW: a car that belonged to the parents of a childhood friend. Walking through his friend’s garage one day and spotting this M3 instantly turned teenage Gabor into a car guy, who from that day forward took every possible opportunity to see … CONTINUED
