BMW Z4 M tuned to resemble a Focke-Wulfe 190 28.08.14

It is quite known that both Americans and Brits are quite proud of the war machines their countries produced during the Second World War.

This is apparent in the many tunes and custom projects that draw heavily from the likes of Spitfires or Mustangs.

Germany, while producing far superior machines during the same period, are not quite so proud and tend to not remember those days. While this is understandable, seeing this Focke-Wulf inspired BMW Z4 M makes me wish they would try to do projects like this.

Vorsteiner presents their M-Tech kit for the F10 BMW 5 Series 27.08.14

As a general rule, I enjoy seeing tuning projects from a few dedicated aftermarket specialists, and when it comes to Bimmers, Vorsteiner is definitely one to follow.

So you can understand my excitement when I learned that Vorsteiner is preparing an M-Tech kit for the F10 BMW 5 Series.

The kit will be presented at this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas, and this is just another reason that you should be excited about the build. But when I saw what they plan, I couldn’t help but feel a bit let down. The M-Tech kit will feature carbon fiber parts, made using a pre-preg method.

Precision Sport Industries is responsible for quite a few Bimmer builds, and most of them are noteworthy.

The same can be said about the latest of their projects, which involves the E89 BMW Z4 roadster.

When the owner brought the Z4 into PSI’s shop, he had a lot of ideas in mind, and the guys delivered in a great way. Right away you can spot the nice Atacama Yellow paint job that goes well with the M Performance gloss black grilles and the M Sport front and rear bumper and the rear diffuser.

Race BMW i8 rendering 25.08.14

When it comes to tuning, especially when we speak about massive alterations to the car, it is usually safer to just draw it out first.

Renderings are pretty much that, although a bit closer to reality, and yet another rendering for the BMW i8 was offered recently.

While some envision pickups or themed Bimmers, Jon Sibal would like to see a racing version of the BMW i8. He provided us with a very nice rendering of one such BMW i8, if it will ever exist. And fact is that there are slim chances to actually see one built.

BMW i8 sporting Blade Runner theme 14.08.14

Whenever we see a nice rendering of a possible future car or even a nice tuning project, we usually take it for granted, and don’t really realize how much can go into one such image.

Well, a certain artist called Yasid put together a nice video displaying the work he put into transforming an i8 into a Blade Runner version of it.

Truth be told, while even the BMW M4 already has plenty of tuning kit already available, I have yet to see anything related to the greener i3 or even the i8. We do have some renderings, and they look rather nice, even if we won’t get to see them come to life anytime soon.

BMW Z4 tune by Rowen 13.08.14

When we talk about Japanese tuners, we can’t really call them subtle, and there are a lot of builds out there than can prove just that.

Then again, that doesn’t mean those builds are not good builds, and neither is this one from Rowen.

This particular BMW Z4 is a very good example of a nice tune, even if it’s just aesthetic. Rowen decided to go with the standard new features like new front and rear bumpers, side skirts, new diffuser complete with new exhaust system and a lot of LED lights.

E93 BMW M3 convertible by Liberty Walk 11.08.14

There are a lot of BMW M3 tunes out there, both modifying performance and altering appearance.

Of them all, the E9x builds have to be the most, and if we were to judge by this particular build, you understand why.

People just love the BMW M3, and they also love altering it to better suit their fantasy. When we talk about visual changes, Liberty Walk, a Japanese tuner, has managed to make quite a name for itself. Most of their body kits manage to bring out the inner beast, giving cars that extra aggressive look.

More info on Manhart’s BMW X4 xDrive35d 08.08.14

Not too long ago we talked about Manhart plan to tackle the BMW X4, and at that time, we had pretty much the goal and a photo.

Now the aftermarket specialist come out with plenty more pictures and some serious information.

The biggest improvement was the engine power bump, which now is capable of delivering some 375 PS and 740 Nm of torque, up from 313 PS and 630 Nm. Decent numbers, but so far, we don’t know how this translates into top speed and acceleration time.

1970 Alpina 2002ti restored 06.08.14

Right now, Alpina is one of the most important aftermarket specialist that deal in Bimmers, and they have been for a while now.

It has been many decades since Alpina first started collaborating with BMW to bring the ultimate driving machine up a few notches.

One of the first models they worked on was the 2002ti, and when they were done fiddling with it, it was pretty impressive. Most other vehicles were simply inferior, and for good reason. Now, BMW and Alpina are bringing a restored 1970 Alpina 2002ti to the 2014 Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion.

BMW M4 by PSI 05.08.14

There a few modified BMW M4s out there, and while that number is steadily increasing, we have yet to see one truly amazing build.

The latest project comes from Precision Sport Industries, and is pretty much as basic as the rest of them.
