Did you all receive what you wanted for Christmas? If so, was it as ugly and awesome as this??
This is the story of Dirk Schulz, the first BMW i8 customer. He optioned the car when he saw the concept vehicle back in 2010. At that time he did not know the price or any technical data or even if the car will be produced.

The X1 has been slowly dropping its camouflage over the last year and it may finally have lost all its front end covering in this purported image of a production X1. Seen here is half of the front fascia, giving us an unobstructed look at the final bumper and headlight design. An interior photo was posted along with the exterior pic, matching the X1 interior we’ve previously shared with you, and providing further credibility to the exterior photo being that of the upcoming new … CONTINUED

Coca-Cola vs. Pepsi. The Hatfields vs. McCoys. M3 vs. RS4. These are the classic rivalries, and in the case of the BMW vs. Audi, I don’t think it will ever go away.
For good reason, as we know its not just a matter of brand pride but these cars seem to more evenly matched up then ever.
Luckily the folks over at CarThrottle have gotten their hands on both cars and done a thorough comparison. *Spoiler alert* : The M3 wins yet … CONTINUED

The new 3D Design program was just released by 3D Japan! The 3D Design F8X M3/M4 program will take a different manufacturing approach than previous chassis. All pieces will be 2×2 twill weave and more importantly pre-preg construction. This manufacturing process will allow 3D Design to offer an even higher quality material finish. The program will consist of a front lip, rear diffuser, trunk spoiler, side skirt set, suspension, and of course their billet aluminum pedal set.
I am happy to say todays meet was a complete success. I was blown away by the amount of people there.
