Equipment of Vehicle: The vehicle is a 2015 F80 M3 with no options except m-adaptive suspension. That means 18″ wheels, 6 manual trans, etc. and carbon fiber roof Fuel: The tank had 3 gallons in it INCLUDING THE RESERVE at the time of weighing. This was confirmed by filling up AFTER the weigh in and putting in 12.89 gallons. Miscellaneous Items in Car: removed everything from the vehicle not physically screwed down. No manual, no extra quart of oil in the trunk, no trunk net, etc. Weight: 3,450 pounds This was weighed at a scrap yard that charged me $4 to weigh the car. However, their scales are inspected and verified down to a narrow range because people are getting paid by the pound.

Recently BMWBLOG has learned that the upcoming 2015 BMW X5 M and X6 M will feature an updated V8 4.4 liter turbocharged engine that will produce more power than the current version. While our sources have not indicated the exact output, they mentioned that the new powerplant is more than just a tuned up version of the S63Tu unit with the latest engine developments from BMW.

Rumors around the interwebs say that the new powerplant will produce nearly 600 horsepower, a significant upgrade even over the Competition Package developed for the M5 and M6. The torque will also get a bump well above the 500 lb-ft limit. Also, the upcoming F85 BMW X5 M and F86 BMW X6 M will move away from the automatic transmission found in the first generation and import the sharp and precise DCT box found in the M5 and M6. The top speed will likely be electronically limited to 174 mph (300 km/h).

Carbuyer reviews and compares the BMW 3 Series versus the Audi A4 and Mercedes Benz C-Class. The new F30 3 Series Series came to market to challenge the Audi A4 for interior quality, an area where BMW has fallen short in the past. Historically, BMW has held the upper hand when it comes to driver enjoyment, so it is interesting to see how the two compare in other areas. Mercedes has given the new C-Class a luxurious interior, lots of clever equipment and the option to purchase yet more. Think of the new Mercedes C-Class as a mini version of the top-of-the-range Mercedes S-Class. Find out what we think is the best compact executive car by watching our video below.

Remember the Austin Yellow BMW F82 M4 with Vorsteiner VSE-003 wheels we spoke of earlier? The same company has now added a different set of wheels, their Vorsteiner VSR-163 wheel design on a BMW M Coupe. As Austin Yellow quickly becomes one of the more coveted exterior finishes for the brand new BMW M4, it’s easy to forget to what level can a custom set of wheels elevate this particular model. These are made from a forged piece of monoblock and in this particular build, they come in size of 20×10 in the front and 20×11 in the rear. These are made from a forged piece of monoblock and in this particular build, they come in size of 20×10 in the front and 20×11 in the rear.

What began its life in Saudi Arabia has now came over to United States and this Monte Carlo Blue BMW F10 M5 looks splendind in its new home. Just as the car arrived on US soil, it was quickly picked up by European Auto Source for some quick and easy modifications. These include a selection of IND parts that give an even more aggressive appearance, while keeping it classy and clean. The IND parts are the IND Painted Kidney Grills, IND Painted Side Markers and IND Painted Trunk Badge. Finally, an Akrapovic Titanium Exhaust System was installed, making sure the twin-turbo V8 sound is heard anywhere it goes, while providing a nice increase in power and performance too. Grab a quick look at the snaps we’ve got from European Auto Source.
