2014 BMW M5 Competition Package: A Better Driver’s Car?

Posted in BMW, General, M Series, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | October 19th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

M5 Competition Package

Ever wondered what happens when a performance car company releases a car that the public doesn’t like? They tack on $7,000 worth of additional goodies, give it a fun name, and hope you don’t realize that what you’re paying for should have been part of the car in the first place. This is exactly what happened when BMW released the redesigned M5 in 2012. It garnered decent reviews, but nothing Earth shattering. So, to get M-lovers back in the saddle, BMW has now offered a competition pack for the M5. As mentioned, it costs over $7,000 in addition the standard M5′s base price. The real question though is… Is it worth it?

BMW Airhead

Josh Withers loves air-cooled BMW motorcycles. He built his own 1973 BMW Cafe, and then after gaining some notoriety for the bike, was commissioned to build a 1972 BMW R75/5 for someone he’d never met in person. It took him two years to complete and he obsessed over every detail. According to him he pocketed only about .10 per hour, but was it worth it… You bet it was. Check out his story after the jump.

BMW E30 Turbo

When it comes to track cars, bigger isn’t always better. You see power is a funny thing that has a way of getting out of hand if you’re not careful. On a track for instance, you need to focus on balance and weight. Yes, power is part of the equation, however it you can’t utilize it then it really doesn’t do anyone any good. Case in point – this BMW E30 turbo that cranks out an astonishing 1,192 HP. The car was originally built for Time Attack, but with this much power and relatively skinny tires out back, controlling it, even for former F1 driver Mika Salo, is a challenge.

Posted in BMW, eBay Motors, European Rides, General, Promoted, Rides by MrAngry | August 19th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

1973BMW2002Touring_1

Now here’s something you don’t see everyday! A 1973 BMW 2002 Touring car that’s been converted over to full track specs. It features a 2.3L S14 M3 motor with 215 hp, an E21 Close Ratio 5-speed gearbox, 3:64 limited-slip differential, fiberglass hood, front fenders and fender turbo 2 flares that are made by Singer. This would make a wicked little alternative to a Mazda Miata or Corvette as the owner has spared no expense in putting this thing together. While the “Buy it Now” price of $48,500.00 may be a bit excessive, there is no question that this unique little track burner will turn heads (and great lap times) wherever it’s unleashed.

BMW 435i on Road and Track: /CHRIS HARRIS on Cars

Posted in Best of, BMW, DRIVE, European Rides, General, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | August 3rd, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

BMW 435i Review

The 2014 BMW 435i is the Bavarian automakers new 306hp rear-wheel drive coupe. It’s comfy, quick, incorporates great handling and brakes, and yet seems to be boring as hell. Many of BMW’s recent cars have been suffering from this problem, meaning that while all the elemental components are there for a great driving car, the fun factor has been literally ripped from its soul. The biggest thing about cars like the BMW 2002, E39 M5 an older M3′s is that these were cars that made you want to drive. This new one may drive well, but seemingly just makes you want to go from point A to point B and never take the long way home. Not a fun thing if you ask me.
