In late June, IND released photos featuring one of the more detailed projects any member at IND has been a part of. This project titled Ear to Ear featured cosmetic and mechanical work that was a culmination of nearly 5 months of work. From the custom bumper and rocker panels to the paintwork, every surface of this vehicle was addressed with some form of individuality. With the amount of time spent addressing every detail of the E93 it was only natural that the M3 … CONTINUED

BMW M4 vs. Mercedes C63 AMG Edition 507 Comparison Review by Caradvice.
Where the new M4 is the first of a new generation, the Edition 507 intends to see this 2008 C-Class out with a bang (pop, crackle and bark). It is the final car ever to utilise the Mercedes-Benz 6.2-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine also used in the SLS AMG supercar.
The next C63 will follow the M4 (and its E63 and CLS63 siblings) and go smaller and turbocharged (but still with eight cylinders … CONTINUED

We’ll take this opportunity to review some … CONTINUED
We’ve seen the next (G30) generation 5 Series touring out on the public roads before, but the prototype has now ratcheted up its testing by taking to the Nurburgring.
At this early stage of testing with heavy camouflage, it’s hard to discern much of the exterior and interior design. But, the front grilles are now semi-visible and the hood cutline appears to have shifted to meet the kidney grilles, just as on the next generation G11 7 Series.
Like the G11 7 Series, the next 5 … CONTINUED

Recently, I had the wonderful pleasure of attending a lovely little classic car show here in Bamberg, Germany.

Weyermann makes the malts that beer breweries used to make various flavored beers. They make one of the main ingredients for making beer. And they are at the top of their game. Sold in over 130 countries, their … CONTINUED
