Watch this 1,305 PS, 2JZ-powered BMW E30 M3 do M3 things at the Nurburgring

The Toyota 2JZ engine is one that has transcended time, spaceships and aliens. This powerplant is so ubiquitious that every time someone mentions an engine conversion, the invevitable answer appears to be, "2JZ-swap it!" Nobody in the history of mankind has ever said, "The E30 BMW M3 needs more poke," but that didn't stop the good people at Buldre Racing team in Germany from yanking the S14 4-cylinder engine (235 PS, 240 Nm in its most powerful form) out for something with more poke. The 'more p

Evolution of the BMW M3 – M Power or AMG?

Racing homologation cars are the best thing that ever happened to car enthusiasts. Manufacturers make them because they are required to. They are basically just stripped-out and rambunctious versions of otherwise practical cars. One happy result of such requirements is the BMW M3 derived from the 3-series. The M3 name has been around for about 35 years. In appreciation of the poster-child of the M badge, let’s look back at the M3s that we have been blessed with over the years. BMW 2002 turbo (th

Evolution of the BMW 3 series in 7 generations – still the ultimate sedan?

Hailing from Munich is the famous German automaker, BMW. The brand has been around since 1916 and its badge proudly displays the colours of the Bavarian flag. If there is one BMW model that well-represents the brand, it has to be the BMW 3 series. The model is compact, accessible, and has an iconic status. Gracing our roads today is the 7th generation of the 3 series, the G20. Like many other long-running car models, the 3-series has evolved over the years, grown larger, and has adapted much mor

The COVID-19 outbreak has taught us many things - that it’s safer to just stay at home, avoid converging in groups and buying cars while drifting is entirely possible. Wait, what?

Have you ever wondered how the BMW 3 Series came to be? What was the car that came before the model?

The BMW 3 Series is a well-loved model. Since the 70s, the 3 Series has come a long way to become a status symbol for young executives with an enthusiasm for sharp handling cars, as well those who are less car savvy. But do you know how did the 3 Series came to be? What spurred BMW to create the model and which car did the 3 Series succeeded and continued its legacy?
