BMW 3-Series by VMR Wheels

VMR Wheels released a new package for the BMW 3-Series, shortly after their similar BMW M4 kit which we talked about here. There are several types of tuning kits. Some bring styling tweaks, other performance and of course, there are some that are more comprehensive with both aesthetic and performance improvements.

This particular model is a BMW 335i Sedan with a nice Alpine White exterior finish. It is shod in 19-inch VMR 810 alloy wheels that received a Hyper Silver finish.

The multi-spoke design of the new rims is certainly something to catch your eye and manages to refresh the appearance of the sporty-looking F30 3-Series.

E90 BMW 335i By European Auto Source

The BMW E90 3 Series is not something that’s been recently put on the market; quite the contrary. It has managed to attract the attention of the public continuously, though, being placed in-between the list of highly regarded sedans.

EAS has been in this business for quite some time so it’s no surprise that they can bring the best out of any car, especially if it’s one of Bavaria’s finest. The E90 3 Series is one of the most important vehicles in BMW’s lineup. As a matter of fact the massive sales in this segment speak for themselves.

Massive improvements have been done to the simple 6 cylinder setup in order to bring the most out of it. Performance upgrades show that the car’s improvement has materialized in a 0 to 60mph run of about 5 seconds, this being achieved with an automatic transmission coupled. Continue Reading →

The newest project EAS has taken in account is a rather fancy mineral white F30 BMW 3 Series, a beautiful, if not elegant vehicle, a work of art on wheels. So, it figures that nothing was changed on the outside or inside of the car other than the rims.

The simplest and most stylish change when trying to lightly tune a car always revolves around the outside and since the rims are usually the more noticeable part general customer needs when it comes to these is not a surprise.

The Apex EC-7 rims wrapped in low profile sport tires feel right at home on the new F30 BMW 3 Series and why wouldn’t they, given the fact the complete the car’s look and style and simultaneously give it a new identity not far from its original but enough to make a rather different statement than before.

Hamann kit for F31 BMW 3 Series Touring

With most of the tuners bringing their A game to the Essen Motor Show, it seems that Hamann released a new kit almost unnoticed.

And for good reason, too, as this kit caters to the F31 BMW 3 Series Touring, a model that is not that popular among enthusiasts.

And if that wasn’t enough, the kit itself doesn’t bring that much of a change to the vehicle. Just enough to spruce things up while still maintaining the practical side of the BMW 3 Series Touring. Basically, it’s for the dads that want to look better taking kids to school.

TC-Concept BMW 3 Series

Body kits for BMW’s new models are starting to pour in from tuners, both known and only just making a name for themselves.

TC-Concept decided to see about modifying the BMW 3 Series, and the result is better than you might expect.

Their wide body kit is the one to have, for now at least, if you want an M3 kind of look on your standard BMW 3 Series. And if you already have installed either the M Sport package or M Performance parts, don’t fret, for TC-Concept’s kit is built to work nicely with them.

E30 BMW 3 Series pickup conversion

Yet another pickup conversion has found its way to the internet, and this time it is an E30 BMW 3 Series.

From the looks of it, this isn’t just a very clean exterior mod, but also a more powerful car altogether.

The base model for this pickup Bimmer was the E30 BMW 3 Series convertible. This is the soft top version, and after removing said soft top, the owner converted the rear end of the vehicle into a flat bed. He did it quite seamlessly, and this wasn’t all he did.

F30 BMW 335i gets Armytrix valvetronic exhaust

When it comes to exhaust systems, the valvetronic kind is usually preferred for a car you drive everyday, and Armytrix just provided one for the F30 BMW 335i.

With a valvetronic exhaust system, you get the mad sound of racer at the push of a button, but you can still enjoy a smoother sound if you feel like kicking back.

And the product Armytrix provided is quite good at what it does. Although, in all honesty, most enthusiasts are now waiting for some aftermarket pieces for the new F80 BMW M3 or the F82 BMW M4, which could seriously use an upgrade when it comes to exhaust sound.

Lichtenstein’s BMW art car on display in Hong Kong

There are a lot of people that are adamant about vehicles not being art, no matter how you paint them or how much you modify them.

Still, with 17 BMW art cars currently in the manufacturer’s garage, spanning several decades, we think a lot of people might be wrong.

Among the first art cars, Roy Lichtenstein’s 320i Turbo will be presented in Hong Kong. I am no art critic, but I do like Lichtenstein’s design, while I wouldn’t know the significance behind it. In his own words, the “painted lines symbolize the road the car has to follow and the artwork also portrays the surroundings through which the car is being driven”.

E30 BMW 3 Series turned into… something

We have had plenty of weird and over the top builds presented here, and not much surprises us. But from time to time, a gem arises to show us that weird can still be done.

This E30 BMW 3 Series sure managed to pull that look, and I am not exactly sure what it is supposed to be, but it looks like it was taken out of a Tom & Jerry cartoon.

The owner named the build Gatsby BMW Cabriolet Custom, a name that pretty much says it all. It is a stretch convertible that wants to bring the 50s back. Most body panels were provided by Gatsby Coachworks, after being pilfered from an MG. The craftsmanship is not that bad, either.

Alpina B3 Bi-Turbo speed test clocks 300 km/h

As far as specialized tuners go, BMW managed to attract a few, but if I were to choose one best to represent the German car maker, it has to be Alpina.

Ever since their first project together, every Bimmer that found its way on the hands of the wizards at Alpina was turned up several notches.

The quality of their builds is something you can depends on, and that is why they managed to strike out on their own a long time ago – successfully. One of their more beloved models has to be the B3 Bi-Turbo, a model based on BMW’s 335i. But just how awesome is this build?
