2004 BMW 330i on Skidpad
This is Me driving my bone-stock 2004 BMW 330i ZHP on a wet skidpad at the
Shenandoah Circuit at Summit Point Motorsports Park in WV. I had some
trouble getting it going at the start, but I made some OK drifts at the
end. I was having a really hard time properly modulating the throttle, and
it, along with my inexperience shows a bit.

Supersprint Exhaust Interior of BMW 330i
Some clips for anyone who want to hear what a Supersprint Exhaust sounds like in normal driving situations
with some play mixed in too!
To be honest there is a minor bit of drone at low RPMs under load. Once a
downshift is done to put RPMs around 3,000 under load (uphill) then the
slight drone disappears.

Top Gear Reviews the E46
Jeremy Clarkson of UK Top Gear reviews the BMW 328i (edited for length). I
like the review because the 328i similar to my car which is newer version,
the 330i, and it is in the same series (E46). Clarkson is a fun reviewer
and he really showcases the great features of the E46 series BMWs.
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.
