Although E30 in body only, this V10 E30 M3 build is something to behold! It borrows liberally from modern BMWs, including the current M5 and even the E90.
Hi-res images of the M6 Competition Limited Edition have now been posted, as well as a video walkaround.
The F10 M5 will be the next highly anticipated super sedan from BMW. Do you have a wishlist for the next M5? Come share yours.
The Nitto photoshoot of Longtran’s car was done by none other than Wynn Ruji. Some nice wallpapers for fans of the E90 M3 sedan.
Several Shanghai M3post members gathered for their 1st meet this weekend, not an easy feat given the car’s rarity due to the USD 160,000 price tag.
Here’s our first reported X6 M delivery! Xbimmers member rleestma shares impressions, videos, and photos of his 555hp monster. This was quite an upgrade from his X5.
Here are some snippets from rleestma’s impressions (full details INSIDE)
Power - It was posted that the power was not that different than an X5, I couldn’t disagree more…
Suspension - My X5 seemed to give the rider more of the impression that they were “in between the wheels”, whereas the X6 M is quite springy right now…
Seats - The seats are not as comfortable as the sport seats I had in my X5…
Technology - Sick. Just sick. Anything you could ever want…
Looks - … CONTINUED
Well the car that everyone loves to hate has hit the press circuit and the reviews are starting to roll in. I think I am more maliable then others, and I actually love the styling of the car and from photos the interior oozes high end luxury and quality. So I was sold instantly. The only thing I didnt like was the rear end, but not because I thought it was poorly styled, I just dont like the cross-over shape. But given the cross-over shape, I think BMW did a good job making it look as car like as possible. It came out far better then any other cross-over I can think of (look at the new Honda cross-over or the … CONTINUED
Its an amazing sight to see when a brand new forum member posts up one hell of a car. Todays new member is fredrikz4 who hails from sweden with an ESS supercharged Z4 3.0 that is putting out about 430hp. Frederik didn’t stop with the supercharger and worked on the downflow stream with a new exhaust and pipes as well as a new clutch and rear diff. Bodywork and wheels were seriously beefed up to match what is under the hood and the complete package has to be seen to really be appreciated.
Welcome aboard fredrikz4!
The guys at spyshots.nl have done it again and bring us some nice video footage of the 1er in action. Seeing the car driving around the streets of Germany gives some good insight into the general proportions of this car, and it certainly looks wider and more low slung and compared to the current car. This is still the 5 door version of the car and we have yet to see what a coupe version would look like.
Heres what we know so far. The 5/3-door variants are due as a 2011 model and will sport the familiar 4-6cyl variants which range from anywhere between 115-265hp. An all-wheel drive version has been seen testing (the car with those big silver discs over the wheels) and is likely … CONTINUED
