BMWotD – 1995 M540i

The ’95 ///M Sport 540i market just continues to improve, at least for the fortunate few who own one and decide to sell. I’ve written about a couple other similar cars here before; they were pretty nice cars too, and the asking price on this one is just that much higher. This is one of […]

BMWotD – 1995 e34 5 series V12 6spd Conversion

Here’s a unique car that is up for sale in the Burlington, KY, area. The owner/seller could just as well call it a 550i; it’s a 5-series with a 5-liter V12 engine under the hood.

BMWotD — Damn Swedes

No, that doesn’t look much like a BMW. In fact, it’s a Volvo. Or at least it started out that way when it was new in the 1960’s, but now… That’s a BMW 4.0L M6x V8, with a little tweaking and forced induction (via a pair of turbochargers) that makes it good for about 750HP. […]

BMWotD — ’95 540i M-Sport In The Best Color

The e34 M-Sport 540i pushes a lot of the right buttons for me (I’ve drooled over them before) but this one is extra special, and the reason can be summed up in one word; Hellrot. Red cars just make me jiggy. The ’91 Dinan 535i Turbo that caught my eye a while back was nice, […]

BMWotD — e36 Compact with M50 Six

It’s been a while since I last posted a BMWotD, and I’ve got a few of them stashed away on my local drive, so time to play some catch-up. This one was listed for sale on the Minneapolis CraigsList earlier this month, and had (un)fortunately sold before I saw mention of it on the […]

BMWotD — 1988 M6

Hot on the heels of the 635CSi I posted about a couple of days ago comes this beauty; a 1988 M6. Same form factor as the other car, same color, but a few differences that make all the difference… Gorgeous 1988 BMW E24 Shark! 95K Miles! For sale: One gorgeous rare classic 1988 BMW M6 […]

BMWotD — 1988 635CSi

Here’s an e24 that I wouldn’t mind owning, for sale on CraigsList in Bloomington, MN. A 1988 635CSi with a 5-speed, in red. It’s an ’88, which means it’s equipped with the 211hp M30B35. It hit’s all my happy spots, with one exception; even though the ad is a little short on details, if it […]

BMWotD — Rod Paine’s ’83 528e

Rod Paine is quite a guy. He’s one of the more memorable characters on mainly because he still owns and daily-drives the 1983 BMW 528e that he bought in April of 1983. Rod posted the following on this morning to commemorate the birthdate of his car: This month, our 528e turns 30, as […]

I Love My Car

Well, that’s probably overstating things a bit; I really just like it a lot and am very content with it. And that’s why I’d kinda like to replace it. My daily driver is the 1988 BMW 735i 5-speed that I bought for $1,200 and brought home in the fall of 2009. It’s a great car, […]

BMWotD — 1985 745i/5-speed

Here’s one that came up for sale on recently, and I would dearly love to have. The e23 745i was never sold in the US, so every one of them is a gray-market import; in most every case the car was originally purchased by someone who really wanted one and went to extreme lengths […]
