Bennington, Vermont, United States


After almost a decade of ownership; I've decided that it is best to sell my beloved M6 in the pursuit of musicianship and farther travels in our Vanimal. There has been a lot of downtime on the car giving it TLC. But as listed below there is more to be done, hopefully performed by a true enthusiast/mechanic of these cars.

It was previously owned by a doctor in Williamstown, MA. Being the only car in the now torn down Alcaro Motors Used Cars lot; it had some serious presence! Presence which gives even a timid 17 year old that "gotta have it" gleam with widened eyes. It immediately need attention with a new battery and Valve Adjustment. Many of these tasks were completed with the help of my father; who is a Veteran mechanic of close to 30 years. I'm 24 years old now and it was a worthwhile experience.

This M6's condition has improved in many ways but I'll admit it will need more TLC to continue life and of course it is strictly a summer car.

Just before putting this car in the garage for the winter, the major troubles included a 
power steering leak @ the hydroboost block, bad passenger side body to window seal, front control arms, an untraced fuel smell, and a leaky catalytic converter/muffler. 
Though since purchasing this car in 2007 I have only driven it 15,000 miles and have replaced:

1. the self leveling suspension with 635i Sport shocks/springs (The SLS is all available as parts)
2. The Instrument Cluster Circuit Board
3. The Starter with a Bosch remanfactured from BavAuto
4. The Alternator
5. The Stereo was professionally replaced with an Alpine USB headunit/power amp/speakers
6. The Valve Lash was adjusted around 5,000 miles ago, all measurements were done with a metric micrometer/feeler gauges
7. High/Low Pressure Power steering lines from PS Pump to reservoir/PS Pump to Hydroboost Block.
8. Valve Cover Gasket
9. Oil Pan Gasket (That was a real PITA)
10. Cap/Rotor/Plugs/Hi Perf. Wires all from BavAuto
11. All Coolant Hoses/Radiator/Thermostat/ T-stat Housing
12. Main/Transfer Fuel Pump/Fuel Filter
13. Front Brake Calipers Rebuilt
14. Stainless Brake Hoses installed
15. 4 Yokohama ES100's installed just after purchasing car, rear tires now have negative camber wear
16. Air Filter
17. Both Oil Cooler Lines/Oil Filter Distribution Gasket Replaced

That's all I could think of off the top of my head, I have a partial maintenance table available on spreadsheet; it would be more complete but hard-drives are unreliable, A chronological booklet of receipts will be available once the car is sold/or a test drive is taken. 

This car will be available for pick-up at your expense; so bid wisely and understand that a reserve will be set. I trust this car will go to a great home!

BMW M4 Concept bows, takes handoff from M3 Coupe

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 13:57:00 EST

Remember how, when the first BMW M4 Concept images leaked earlier today, we told you the official information would be coming later this evening? Well, scratch that. The whole kit and caboodle is now online, meaning all the official details are below, as well as a full gallery of high-res images above.
The replacement for the M3 Coupe, the Concept M4 Coupe shares a number of styling similarities with its dearly departed forbearer. To us, it's kind of like a mishmash of greatest hits from the new 4 Series and the old M3. The 4 Series headlights have grown on us, and the side grilles, which are part of BMW's Air Curtain and Air Breather system, are functional.
The power dome in the hood is smaller than on the M3, but is of a similar shape, while the rear diffuser and exhaust treatment look like they're lifted straight from the old car, aside from being finished in carbon fiber. Speaking of which, the carbon fiber roof sports a new touch, a cool BMW M tri-color that runs the length of the roof on the driver's side. The 20-inch M alloy wheels come in a twin five-spoke design, which has sort of become a calling card of BMW's M cars in recent years. Hiding behind those meaty wheels are M's carbon-ceramic brakes.

2016 BMW X1 will be second model on company's front-drive platform

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 17:44:00 EST

BMW is putting a lot of its chips on the success of its forthcoming front-wheel drive models, and it's making a big bet on the company's future in hoping that customers will accept them. Its front-driving UKL platform is underpinning not just the current crop of Minis but a host of BMW vehicles too. The rollout starts with the 2 Series Active Tourer in Europe later this year. But the Bavarian brand confirms to Automotive News Europe that the next one is the X1 crossover, slated to come to Europe next June. It will also be joined by the X2 next summer, confirming earlier rumors about the fashionable CUV's existence.
As the previous spy photos suggest, the X1 is even smaller than the current model, and it supposedly uses the same crop of turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder and 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines as Mini. But according to Automotive News Europe, the little guy is getting an extended, three-row version for the US, Russia and China. Like with the X4 or X6, the X2 shares most of the mechanical parts with its more conventional-looking sibling but features sleeker styling.
To make all of these UKL-based models possible, BMW is sharing development among them as much as is practical. According to Automotive News Europe, the next generations of the Mini Countryman, Clubman, X1 and X2 share the same electrical systems, drivetrains and more. Adding in the Active Tourer and still mysterious Family Active Sports Tourer to the mix, and the result is a big gamble that needs to go Bimmer's way.

BMW 5 Series wagon makes incognito grocery run by way of the 'Ring

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 18:15:00 EST

With a debut in 2009, it's high time that BMW delivered the world with the standard mid-cycle refresh of its popular 5 Series. While we aren't expecting to see it here in the United States, that freshening will include the vehicle shown above, the 5 Series wagon.
This is only the second time we've spotted the camo'd, long-roof 5er in the past year, and while it was chained to a flat-bed in those snaps, today, we can see it lapping the Nürburgring. In addition to the images from the track, we also have our first look at the cabin of the freshened 5 Series, although even it is covered in camouflage, making it quite difficult to spot anything of substance.
As for the exterior, expect modest changes for the second-half of the F10 5er's life, with typical tweaks like new headlights and taillights, and perhaps a freshened front fascia. Considering we last saw the upcoming 5 Series just over a year ago, we'd expect an auto show debut for this smoothed-over model in the not-so-distant future, with Paris a leading candidate.
