E90 BMW M3 tuned to 820 Hp 01.08.14

If you thought you had seen it all when it comes to tuning the older E90 BMW M3, then you need to watch this particular beast tear it up on a stretch of road.

The video we are going to show at the bottom catches the Bimmer doing a solo drag in order to flaunt the power it can produce.

And it has a lot of it, if we are to believe the numbers we were given. It seems that the E90 BMW M3 was brought up to 820 Hp, a number rather rare even on supercars. How this power is produced, we have no idea, as details on what’s going on underneath were not released.

E70 BMW X5 by Fostla 31.07.14

If we were to make a list of the 5 most known BMW tuners, I hardly think Fostla will be mentioned.

But just because they don’t have such a strong portfolio when it comes to modifying Bimmers, it doesn’t mean they don’t know what they’re doing.

In fact, there is one E70 BMW X5 build from Fostla that aims to prove just that. From a performance point of view, things are the most interesting, as the tuner managed to up the power to 650 Hp and 900 Nm of torque. This was done using a PP-Performance stage 2 kit and a new exhaust system from Akrapovic.

BMW X4 by Manhart 30.07.14

When it comes to tuning a BMW, there are few aftermarket specialists out there that pretty much lead the pack.

Manhart is one of them, and they already managed to set up a pretty decent legacy.

Mostly they deal in improving performance of Bimmers, and the latest to join their already vast portfolio is the new BMW X4. Manhart chose the range topping xDrive35d version, as this is the one they wanted to push beyond the limit. Considering they managed to up it to 375 HP and 740 Nm of torque, I’d say they did a good job.

BMW M4 with M Performance parts in Abu Dhabi 29.07.14

Abu Dhabi’s BMW dealership has to be one of the more interesting ones out there, and you will see why.

While this particular BMW M4, full with most of the goodies that can be fitted to it, is a rare sight, it kind of seems at home in Abu Dhabi’s dealership.

This trend came into the media’s attention a couple months ago, and since then, we have almost grown used to it having Bimmers with everything on them. The BMW M4 has pretty much all you can get on it, without having to resort to aftermarket specialists.

Top Reasons to Buy a New Car 23.07.14

It doesn’t matter if you’ve been driving for decades or have a newly minted driver’s license, the decision to buy new or used can be daunting. While used cars depreciate much more slowly that their new counterparts, there are still plenty of reasons to consider buying new.

Excellent Reliability

You can reasonably expect a new car to be reliable for several years. This means no breaking down on the side of the road, and no major repair bills. If you don’t have much in savings but you do have good credit, a new car can give you peace of mind.

F12 BMW 6 Series convertible by MM Performance 23.07.14

MM Performance has again shown us they mean business and want to be counted as one of the better aftermarket specialists out there.

This time, it is an F12 BMW 6 Series convertible that found its way into the tuner’s hands, and came out as a rather nice, if a little simple, build.

Unfortunately, not much has been done to improve on performance, unless we count the new exhaust system from Manhart, which not only provides a quad tailpipe with improved soundtrack, but also adds a few extra horses, as most racing exhausts do.

Vilner E38 BMW 750i now for sale 22.07.14

A few months ago, we presented you a very nice E38 BMW 750i from the Bulgarians at Vilner, and it was stunning.

Now, it seems that the tuner decided to part with it, for reasons undisclosed, and I say gor for it if you can afford it.

Some might argue that you would be buying an old car with 130.000 km on the odometer, but some people don’t know what they are talking about. For just €22.000, you are getting not just a very nice and rare BMW 750i, but one in tip top shape, with full service history and every consumable changed.

Prodrive gives us their take on an E92 BMW M3 21.07.14

With the BMW M4 here, chances are that we will see less and less aftermarket builds for the E92 BMW M3, and there are a lot of fans out there that find this aggravating.

But before tuners shift their attention to the new guy on the block, there is still something left for the outgoing model.

While not being the first aftermarket company to pay their respects to the E92 BMW M3, Prodrive did do their best to make it shine. In my honest opinion, I believe that there still was room for improvement, as the build is kind of basic. Being a strictly cosmetic alteration, you get the basic elements you would expect.

G-Power presents 650 Hp BMW M3 GTS and CRT 10.07.14

As much as we love the new BMW M3 and the M4 newcomer, there is one thing that still makes a few enthusiasts bad mouth the models.

I am talking about the engine, or more particular, the sound it produces.

In many opinions the previous generation, with its naturally aspirated engine, just gave off a far more pleasing purr when you drove it. Of these, two particular special editions were kings of the hill: the GTS and CRT versions. While the GTS was more track oriented, the CRT put more value on luxury, and both were fierce beasts.

Alpina B12 Coupe for sale 10.07.14

To understand why this is such a big deal, you have to know a bit about the BMW 8 Series, the car this is based on. Ever since it was launched, the 8 Series was an instant success to fans of the brand and cars in general. This was back in 1989. Today, seeing a BMW 8 Series on the streets is a rare thing, and seeing the Alpina B12 version of it even more so.
