Car is in good condition. Engine runs like a top. Passed MA inspection without issue August 2013. Has been in the family for nearly 8 years. My father owned it before me and recently transferred ownership to me -- but we both have considered it our car for all of that time. Technically I am the 5th owner. My dad bought it from the 3rd owners, and he (the 4th owner) transferred it to me.There is some rust, but I think it's cosmetic -- mostly just some rust around the rocker panel on the driver side and small spot under the brake light on the passenger side rear. The other area that could use some attention is the front seats. There is a seam rip on the driver seat side bolster, and some general cracking from dryness on the front seats.

It's a great summer car, and if you throw seat covers over the affected area, you're in business for a great time for the upcoming warm weather.

If you know how to upholster, and can do some minor body work you can really take this car to the next level. There really aren't many e30 BMW convertibles around, and the ones you find are either fully restored and going near $10K, or they are just beat to death and rotted out. This is a unique car as it is in good mechnical shape with many of the coveted suspension and braking upgrades already taken care of.

Act fast because this will be gone quick -- and before you know it the summer will be over and you've driven your boring sedan for another 6 months of spring and summer instead of rocking a German made classic with the wind blowing through your hair.

30th Anniversary BMW M5 information leaks out

Mon, 05 May 2014 17:58:00 EST

BMW hasn't kept its 30th Anniversary M5 a very big secret. It even hinted that "a surprise" was coming while celebrating its Autobahn-storming sedan's 30th birthday. However, what exactly was on the way has been a mystery... until now. The folks over at Bimmerpost have found some leaked details about the new model, and it's definitely more than just some badges special paint.
The biggest upgrade for the M5 is that power allegedly increases to 592 horsepower (600PS) and 516 pound-feet of torque (700 Newton-meters). That is a 32-hp and 14-lb-ft increase over the standard M5 and 17 ponies more than models with the Competition Package. The forum claims that all of the cars come with a dual-clutch gearbox, even in the US.
Styling also sees an upgrade with BMW Individual Frozen Dark Silver Metallic exterior paint, special 20-inch wheels, dark chrome trim and 30th Anniversary badges. The interior mixes Merino leather and Alcantara upholstery with dark aluminum trim and more celebratory badges.

2015 BMW Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe priced from $118,225* [w/poll]

Wed, 05 Mar 2014 14:40:00 EST

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.

BMW planning smaller Z2 roadster

Sat, 10 May 2014 09:59:00 EST

It's been a few years since we heard about the BMW Z2, a compact, two-seat convertible that would slot in below the aging Z4 (shown above). Now, though, the crew at Car and Driver are back with details on the oft-rumored roadster.
The big shock for enthusiasts on this one is C/D's report that the Z2 will spin its front wheels, rather than its rears. A front-drive roadster is strange enough, but a front-drive BMW roadster? It's apparently true, though, as the new model would share its platform with the front-drive Mini and 2 Series Active Tourer rather than with the racier 228i or M235i coupes.
According to C/D, the rumored Z2 could be powered by a range of three- and four-cylinder, turbocharged engines, although it's more likely to be a four-only affair. Power should range from 160 to 230 ponies, while an M variant could arrive with 300 horsepower (that's a whole lot of power for front-wheel drive...).
