2002 BMW M3 SMG Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, Test Drive
A ten year old vehicle that will still put a smile on your face. BMW's
fabulous M3 will no doubt, still be one sought after used vehicle on the
market. It's jerky SMG transmission is it's only downfall, but we'd
recommend finding one with the manual transmission anyways.

1998 BMW M5 5.0 V8 Full Review,Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
For more in depth reviews check my channel:
Filmed by: Tomaž Kožar Jesenice
BMW's 1999-on M5 was the car that started the horsepower war in Germany.
Before this super-saloon arrived, 400bhp was a virtually unheard of figure
for a sports-minded executive saloon to be developing. Once BMW had set the
new standard however, a host of imitators appeared with even more power.
But more power doesn't mean more desirable. Many still believe this M5 to
be the pick of like-minded cars in its sector. Here's our guide to finding
yourself the best one possible.
Late last century, performance enthusiasts intent on owning the world's
finest sports saloon had been waiting with bated breath for the men at
BMW's Dingolfing plant to unleash the latest red-hot M-Power version of the
5 Series, and in March 1999, the wait proved well worth it. With 400bhp and
a V8 engine, the M5 rewrote the rules on what defined a premier league
performance saloon. At a few pounds shy of £60,000 it certainly wasn't
cheap, but judged on any objective basis, the M5 was quite simply the best
car there was. Many would argue it still is.
BMW made a number of cosmetic changes for the 2001 model year. Pay
attention and you'd spot body-coloured rubbing strips, round fog lights and
a redesigned front spoiler. The headlights were now of the fashionable
clear lens variety and the indicator lamps became round. To help some of
the M5 magic trickle down through the rest of the range, that model's wider
chrome grille surround were found on all variants. The interior benefited
from a few tweaks as well. A revised range of options were also available,
including a Mini Disc system, a voice-controlled telephone and a larger
There aren't too many surprises with a 5 Series. You know it's going to be
beautifully built, great to drive, understated and well equipped -- and the
BMW M5 is no exception. Once upon a time, for supercar performance, you had
to buy a supercar. A cramped coupe in other words, with hardly enough space
for a change of clothes in the boot. Then along came the M5.
Launched in 1984, this was the first of a new breed of super saloon - the
ultimate 'Q Car'. No stripes or spoilers. In fact nothing to indicate that
this one and three quarter tonne family four-door could out-accelerate (and
arguably out-handle) a Porsche 911. Not surprisingly, the concept caught on
amongst the shy but successful. As sales increased, so did the power on
offer - from 286bhp to 315bhp and 340bhp by the time production stopped in
1995. After that, BMW abandoned the super-saloon market to Mercedes and
Jaguar, hoping that their V8-powered 540i would keep them in with a shout.
Which is why this M5 does the job properly. Under the bonnet lies one of
the most powerful engines ever to be fitted to a production car of any
kind. It's a 32-valve, quad overhead camshaft 5.0-litre V8 crafted from
Alusil - a lightweight aluminium-silicon alloy. The output is an awesome
400bhp - 40% more than the already rapid 540i.
Not that the neighbours would ever suspect. In true M5 tradition, the
current model is discreet to the point of anonymity. A subtle front airdam,
a tiny boot spoiler, gorgeous alloy wheels, clear indicator lenses, quad Exhaust pipes and a small boot badge are
the only giveaways. Inside, it's the same. You could be at the wheel of a
well-specified 530d were it not for the chrome surrounds of the instruments
with their red needles and little touches like the M gearknob which glows
red at night. There's even a tyre pressure monitor.
Prices for the M5 were hit by BMW's decision in late 2000 to cut many of
their prices, the M5 falling from £63,000 down to a bargain £55,000. As
such, early cars can be found for a scarcely credible £15,000 on a 1999 T
plate rising to around £29,900 for a 03-plated model. The M5 proposition
is otherwise refreshingly simple. No special edition models, no go-faster variants, no Touring estate version
and no flim-flam. Insurance is, predictably, Group 20.
Very little goes wrong with the M5. The oil temperature gauge incorporated
into the rev counter reminds users not to thrash the car from cold and most
who buy these cars are knowledgeable types in any case. The black chromed
alloy wheels are hideously prone to kerbing and it's worth taking a good
look at them for damage. When paying this sort of money you should expect
the best and negotiate big discounts for tired interiors or less than
cosmetically perfect bodywork. Avoid aftermarket accessories as these will
dent the resale value and check for crash damage and that it is clear of

2014 BMW i8 Review
What's New for 2014
The 2014 BMW i8 is an all-new model.
Based on the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car shown a few years
ago, the 2014 BMW i8 represents the German automaker's vision of a
high-performance plug-in hybrid. If this is what the future looks like,
sign us up. Zero to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds? A full charge in three hours
from a regular garage outlet? Approximately 95 mpg? Yes, please.
For the i8, BMW chops its classic 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine
formula in half. The i8 uses a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder
paired with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. The
three-cylinder drives the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic
transmission, while the electric motor powers the front wheels through a
The engine and electric motor combine for 362 horsepower, 420 pound-feet
of torque and all-wheel-drive performance, all integrated into a chassis
that is 10 pounds lighter and 1.5 inches longer than the 3 Series. The i8
also delivers stellar handling thanks to 50/50 weight distribution and a
low, centrally mounted battery pack, although standard 20-inch wheels seem
like a suspect choice for maximizing corner-to-corner performance.
BMW says the i8 can also travel 22 miles and reach a top speed of 75 mph on
electrons alone. Uncorked with the gasoline engine in the lead, it will
reach a top speed of 155 mph. Sounds like a pretty good future to us.
Lightweight construction helps bring lofty performance within reach,
notably an aluminum chassis, chemically hardened glass (similar to that
used in smartphones) and extensive use of carbon-fiber-reinforced panels
within the 2+2 passenger cabin. Those plus-2 rear seats are small, however,
smaller than even a Porsche 911's, and are best considered auxiliary
luggage space. Even settling into the front seats requires some practice
given its unique scissor-lift-style doors.
We drove a recent i8 prototype and found the i8's easy thrust in
all-electric mode a close match for the Tesla Model S. In its Sport mode
(there are also Comfort and Eco Pro settings), the i8 further awakens,
feeling light, agile and averse to body roll. The hybrid never quite
overwhelms with acceleration, but it also never feels winded, the electric
motor's torque nicely covering for the small turbo as the latter winds up to deliver its power
Whatever the i8 lacks in competitive performance, it won't lack for style.
Its low-slung profile is punctuated by standard U-shaped LED headlights.
You can even order the i8 with laser headlights where regulations allow
(sorry, U.S. shoppers). Inside, a multitiered and layered cockpit design
uses recycled materials and naturally treated leather for upholstery and
panel surfaces Like the smaller i3 electric car, the i8 will offer three
trim levels -- Mega, Giga and Tera -- all with varying degrees of sport and
The 2014 BMW i8 arrives in the spring and starts around $136,000. That's
well above its most obvious target, the Tesla Model S, and that kind of
money also buys a lot of Porsche 911. Performance aficionados won't likely
be swayed and may even look across the BMW lineup to the "M" cars. But for
the hybrid buyer seeking power, performance and efficiency through a lower
profile, the 2014 BMW i8 presents a unique choice.
Check back for more information on the 2014 BMW i8, including specs,
driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.
The Tire-Punishing, 400HP Turbo BMW E30! - /TUNED
The BMW E30 is quickly becoming a cult classic among the DIY, autocross,
and track crowd. And though the M3 version may be climbing so quickly in
price, soon no one will be able to afford one, the 325i, as it turns out,
has some chops as a great platform for tuning. Kameron Baker's homebuilt
E30 is just about the nicest one we've seen, and if you think it looks
great, wait till you see how it drives.
BMW M235i vs BMW M3 CSL on track

With its 3.0-litre, twin-turbocharged
straight six engine, the BMW M235i is the most powerful 2 Series you can
buy and is priced at just over £34,000. However, for the same money you
can have the modern classic M3 CSL that was launched in 2004.
The BMW M235i's twin-turbo engine
produces 322 brake horsepower and 450 Newton
Metres of torque. That's 78Nm more than the old M3. It weighs 1,470kg, so
it's also 85kg heavier than the CSL.
Launched in 2004, the BMW M3 CSL was the most extreme version of the E46
BMW M3 generation. With a carbon fibre roof, it weighed 100kg less than the
standard M3 and it also had upgraded springs, dampers and brakes plus extra
power. It also came exclusively with BMW's automated manual SMG gearbox.
The reason the BMW M3 CSL is quite a good comparison to the M235i is
because a normal M3 around this age will cost you between £6,000 and
£10,000. If you want a decent M3 CSL then you're looking at around
£30,000 to £35,000 so it's very similar money. More importantly, you'll
get this astonishing engine that revs to 8,000rpm.
The BMW M3 CSL's gearbox is very slow by modern standards as it isn't a
modern dual-clutch system. However, there's so much balance in the chassis,
you can just sense when the car is in transition from understeer to
In the M3 CSL, you get an amazing engine that goes ballistic above 6,000rpm
but in the BMW M235i, it's just really quick-revving and gets lots of
torque through the rev range.
It's heavier than the CSL, but it should come as no surprise as modern cars
are getting heavier and heavier. The M235i is still a really lovely road
car as it's very delicate and really enjoyable.
However, the BMW M235i does feel a little bit heavy and it doesn't have the
body control of the hard-edged CSL. You can feel there in the oversteer
when the car comes back, there's a little bit of snapback as the lateral
movement in the body starts to make itself known.
Despite the differences between the BMW M3 CSL and the M235i, they both
recorded the same lap-time around our circuit.
The BMW 2 series makes a more accessible every-day drive, but the M3 CSL is
a thrilling classic that's to be enjoyed on occasion, and makes a better
investment than your average pension.
