Car includes the complete 7 piece wide body kit, I have included pictures of what it looked liked in 1995. I have removed the entire suspension, engine, transmission and differential (not included with car). The electrical harness has been removed (not included). the Brake booster assembly is also removed, along with the pedal box assembly (not included). The ATS 16 gallon fuel cell with aviation filler remains installed in trunk, along with the battery box in the right rear corner of trunk floor (custom false floor remains installed). 6 point aluminum roll cage included, along with custom roll cage padding and covers. WINK rear view mirror is installed. All glass is installed. Hood, doors and rear deck lid installed. Front strut bar is included, roll cage and strut bar are painted BMW Daytona to match car. Front wide body fenders are included, rear wide body fenders are not installed. Heater assembly removed, wiper system removed. Negative comments: The wide body kit will require some repairs and repainting. Both of the front sub-frame support rails have rust in the end of the support (most rearward area). Both outside rocker panels were replaced in 1993, there is some rust in the inboard drivers side rocker approximately 5 inches. If I were going to repair the rust I would use 4 X 4 square tubing and tie the roll cage mounts into this new support along side the rockers. The car is structurally safe and stiff, I have jacked the car using either side rocker jack support and both sides of the car are even when placing jack stands. I just want a full disclosure of what the car needs, no surprises for the buyer. It will take someone with welding and fabricating ability to properly repair the rust. The car is presently mounted on a two custom 2 X 2 inch square tube frames and rolls nicely.

It's no secret that VW Group, parent company to not only Volkswagen but also Audi, Bugatti, Bentley, Lamborghini, Porsche and Ducati brands sold in the US, is determined to become the world's largest automaker. Even more impressive is that VW is prepared to spend billions to make it happen.
With that comes word that VW Group will be spending $17 billion on its Audi brand over the next three years to push itself above rival BMW. The money will be invested in both vehicle development (including lightweight auto design and alternative powertrains) and facilities (including expansion in Hungary, China and new operations in Mexico). The luxury brand is focused on global manufacturing infrastructure.
Already Europe's best-selling luxury brand, Audi's objective is to overtake BMW by the end of the decade by selling more than two million cars per year (BMW is shooting for 1.54 million sales in 2013). If those objectives are met, VW Group should be on track to be the industry's volume leader by 2018.
BMW has brought a slightly different concept vehicle to the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Rather than something that foreshadows a future product or a new design direction, the Munich-based manufacturer has brought an X5 that's designed to be shot at. It's called the Concept X5 Security Plus. The Concept X5 name is a bit misleading, though. It's based on the 2014 X5, while BMW already builds an armored CUV, called the X5 Security. The concept tag has to do with the "Security Plus" part.
Engineered to be compliant with VR6 security standards - the current X5 Security is for VR4 standards - the Concept X5 will quite happily shrug off direct attacks from an AK-47. Thanks to sealed joints, high-strength steel moldings, high-performance steel body panels and special, polycarbonate-coated security glass, Kalashnikov's finest, whether used as a firearm or as a melee weapon, would be useless against this X5.
Built alongside the standard X5 in BMW's Spartanburg, SC factory, the X5 is shipped to a BMW facility in Toluca, Mexico for installation of the armor and security features. The company claims this delivers a more thoroughly engineered protective solution than aftermarket retrofitting.
If you're in the market for a high-performance BMW and you live in Europe, you've typically had two range of options at your disposal: you could go for one of BMW's own M models, or turn to Alpina. Though technically independent of BMW, Alpina is about as close to the manufacturer as a tuner can get, and many of its models are offered through BMW's own dealer network.
That's overseas, but in the North American market, BMW has typically taken a different approach, offering just one Alpina model - the B7 - to fill in for a lack of M7 performance sedan. That all changes, however, with the debut of the BMW Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe.
Slotting in alongside the M6 Gran Coupe, the Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe is marginally more expensive and slightly less powerful, but makes up for those relative (and negligible) shortcomings in spades. Both are based on the 6 Series Gran Coupe and both pack a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, but with key differences. Where the M6 produces 560 horsepower, the Alpina offers 'only' 540. But where the M6 channels 500 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the Alpina drives 540 lb-ft to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic.
