Hamann builds wide body kit for the F15 BMW X5 16.04.14

It is refreshing to see tuners bring out a kit for SUVs, be them additions to performance, aesthetics or both, as tuned sedans and coupes are everywhere.

Hamann recently introduced their wide body kit for the F15 BMW X5 SUV, and it is quite good.

Most builds out there that target the big cars tend to go one of two ways: either they try to bling it up as much as possible, turning a perfectly good SUV into a pimp-mobil, or they go huge, adding massive bits of menacing metal, turning the SUV into a road-legal pedestrian masher.

E21 BMW 3 Series converted to a tow truck 15.04.14

Over the last few months we have witnessed several BMW pickup conversions, with even respectable tuners considering building such contraptions.

But while a pickup BMW is becoming something possible, pioneers come up with other, more controversial builds for their Bimmers.

One such vehicles recently became available for purchase on Copart.com. This conversion uses an E21 BMW 3 Series as a base and from there, a tow truck was born. The rear half of the vehicle has everything a tow truck needs, and what is even more spectacular, it all works.

E92 BMW M3 by iPE and Liberty Walk 14.04.14

When it comes to visual alterations, Liberty Walk has made a name for itself, with very wide yet very good looking body kits.

So when they teamed with iPE Innotech exhausts for a E92 BMW M3 build, the results were expected to be at least interesting.

And interesting they are, to say the least. In fact, I would go so far as to call this particular tune a bit striking, but mostly because of the lime green paintjob they went for. Other than that, it is all good, from the bolt-on wide body panels to the new exhaust system.

BMW M3 art car by Jeff Koons comes in new pictures 10.04.14

Started several decades ago, the BMW art car has become sort of a tradition, with the latest being an M3 done by Jeff Koon.

The BMW M3 art car was finished last year, but just in case you started to miss it, it is now available in a whole new set of photographs and wallpapers.

For those a bit more informed about BMW art cars, you might find this particular one a bit familiar. Just to jog your memory, look for the BMW M1 art car done in 1979 by artist Andy Warhol. The resemblance is there for a reason: Jeff Koon actually did his take as a tribute to the BMW M1.

LTMW meeting gathers plenty tuning projects 08.04.14

Recently LTMW organized a nice meet for those that own some special tuned vehicles, and the turnout was spectacular.

From a Ferrari 458 Italia to a Nissan GT-R and, of course, plenty of Bimmers, the gathering showed just how far tuning can go without going overboard.

Admittedly, the Bimmers weren’t the main attraction, but if they weren’t the central focus, they were there in force, with an E92 BMW M3, an E30 BMW M3 and pretty much everything in between. Unfortunately, not much info on performance figures were available, but we do have a lot of photos.

ESS supercharged BMW M3 cuts loose on the dyno 07.04.14

When you have a beauty of a car and on top of that, you go ahead and add even more awesomeness in the form of tuning, it’s hard not to brag about it.

Actually, this might be one of the biggest issues with those that are crazy for aftermarket parts: they can’t stop talking about them.

But, should they find the right audience, anything they can say about their car will become a good story. Better yet, they can grab a camera and let the video speak for itself, like the owner of this BMW M3 did. After visiting the guys from ESS, he managed to retrofit plenty parts, and since he was there, why not slap on a VT2-625 Supercharger as well?

PSI BMW 1M 06.04.14

I believe there are no vehicles, no matter how awesome, that would remain unscathed should they ever find themselves on the hands of a tuner.

With the really rare cars, that perform well and look awesome, tuning is quite the challenge, as adding or removing something can completely ruin an otherwise beautiful ride.

The BMW M1 is not that rare of a car, but you can’t say it is mass produced, either, so not many have found their way on the hands of tuners. This BMW 1M did, and the guys from Precision Sport Industries went to town on it, in a good way. They modified not just appearance, but also performance figures.

E92 BMW M3 pickup discovered in South Africa 03.04.14

It seems everywhere we turn our heads these days, another BMW pickup makes an appearance.

A couple of days ago, we had the M6 rendering, a prank pulled by Prior Design, now we get to see and actual E92 BMW M3 converted to a pickup.

It is quite curious why so many people like the idea of a pickup version of a BMW. It could be that some are just interested in a cool utilitarian vehicle, built with dedication and craftsmanship by the Bavarian team, but I bet some are more attracted to the enhanced drifting capabilities of such a vehicle.
