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?

Posted in Best of, BMW, European Rides, General, M Series, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | June 16th, 2013 | 1 Response |

BMW E30 M3

Gabor Mester was a man with a mission. From a young age he was enamored by a certain BMW E30 M3 that lived in the garage of a family friend. On weekends he’d wash it, admire it and on occasion, take it on a drive around the block. Gabor however didn’t just want an E30 M3, he wanted THAT particular M3. You see this was the one he salivated over, the one he yearned for. So, when his family friends decided to sell, he did everything he could to get his hands on it. The end result was one very happy man and a car that is sure to be around for a long, long time.

Battle of the Spocks: Audi S7

Audi S7

Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy. Two Spocks of different eras brought together for a battle of speed and wits in Audi’s new commercial for the 420 horsepower S7 sedan . Quinto, our new Spock, returns for his second film in the upcoming “Star Trek: Into Darkness”, while Nimoy is a veteran of seven motion pictures and will forever be our #1 Spock. And while Quinto adds a wonderfully youthful flair to the character, let’s just say that there’s no replacement for tried and true experience.

2013 BMW X6 M

PRO’s: Outstanding performance, extreme all-weather versatility, spacious enough for a family of 5.

BMW M2: Bavarian Wonder

Posted in Best of, BMW, European Rides, General, M Series, Rides by MrAngry | April 21st, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

BMW M2

Make it small, make it lite, make it fast. Those are the key ingredients for any well thought out sports car and something that BMW knew from the beginning. Therefore it should come as no surprise that their iconic 2002 is one of those machines. By today’s standards they are underpowered, but that doesn’t mean that they still don’t make one of the best platforms around for customization. Marc Norris’s Bavarian Workshop of West Hills, CA decided to take this concept and make it a reality with their own vision of what a factory BMW M2 might have been like.

Boss 302 vs BMW 1M vs BMW M3: Everyday Driver

Posted in Best of, BMW, Domestic Rides, European Rides, Ford, General, M Series, Mustang, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | April 13th, 2013 | 1 Response |

BMW 1M

Since the late 1980′s the BMW M3 has been one of the best cars out there offering up a great combination of performance, usability and style. Out of the box they’re outstanding machines, however over the years the M3 has seemingly become a watered-down version of its former self. So much so in fact that cars like the Boss 302 Mustang, and even BMW’s own 1M, can be offered up as competition. Everyday Driver decided to pit that aforementioned Ford and 1M against the M3 to see if the old boy should still retain its crown, or if it still brings out the same emotion the original car did all those years ago.

M6 vs SL63

The perplexing thing about BMW’s M cars and anything with an AMG stamp on it is this – are they sports cars, full-on grand tourers or both? Both the BMW M6 and Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG are brutes when it comes to flat out power, speed and torque, but what about handling and overall road manners? Chris Harris of the DRIVE Network on Youtube recently took both of these cars out for a proper flogging to see if they do in fact fall into a specific category, or if they’re simply a Jack of all trades and master of none. Check it out after the jump.

2012 Mercedes-Benz GL

Dear Mercedes-Benz,

I’d like to congratulate you for creating what is perhaps the worst automotive car chase in the history of film while trying to show off your new 2013 GL-Class. You see last time I checked, car porn was supposed to excite and captivate us, not make us want to go out and get a latte’ from an overpriced coffee shop. Now by all means, if this is what you were going for then bravo! If your intention was otherwise however, well then, please try again.

FYI – Take a look at this old BMW ad as you may want to use it for reference next time around.

Sincerely,

The Motoring Public
