A BMW M4 Hot Lap Changed my Perspective on Street Car Speed [VIDEO]

The BMW M4 has been a staple of automotive Internet controversy since it's reveal in Phoenix Austin Yellow. Lately that controversy has surrounded its name and its sound (following the demise of the legendary S65 V8), but after I experienced and filmed the ride above at this year's Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, I… » 7/27/14 9:49am Yesterday 9:49am

The bands are people, the photographers are people, and the attendees are people. It's just an event put on by people, and every once in a while, the sea of waving arms that attend these massive festivals should be reminded of that. I think that's what he's doing, and I applaud him. » 7/25/14 9:09am Friday 9:09am

It's Been Old BMW Day on Oppo? My E24 Can Play at This

Old BMWs… » 7/13/14 7:12pm 7/13/14 7:12pm

Black or dark-colored cars are famously the hardest to keep clean, but the rewards - as seen on this E93 M3 undergoing a quick detail - are (at least for a few minutes) substantial.

Fair enough (well, not fair enough, but perhaps "legal enough"), but why not have the auto headlights as a third mode, after "low" and "high"? Isn't that what GM (and a number of other, IIRC) did in the '90s-2000s, where they had "autodimming" headlights? Why not just play it off as an auto-dimming feature? » 6/23/14 11:24pm 6/23/14 11:24pm

This Exhaust Noise is NOT Coming from a V8 Vantage

(Repost for the morning crowd) ...It's actually coming from an E39 BMW 540i, via its M62tu and six-speed transmission, and through a resonator-less Dinan exhaust system. This video is sort of a test of an idea I had to treat some of the extra exhaust noise clips I had lying around as the music it rightfully is, and to… » 6/13/14 11:00am 6/13/14 11:00am
