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!

2014 BMW X5 configurator goes live

Sun, 28 Jul 2013 15:58:00 EST

BMW won't begin selling the 2014 X5 for another few months, but the German manufacturer has brought the third-generation SAV's configurator online, allowing interested customers to poke around and look at the X5's optional goodies.
Like the 3 Series, the X5 is available in a number of lines that load up extras automatically. There's also a do-it-yourself truck that allows owners to pick and choose if they're not enamored with the styling or trim of one of the dedicated packages. As usual, the options list is quite vast, regardless of which line is chosen. We were able to easily take the new, rear-drive X5 sDrive35i, which started at $52,800, and bring the total price up past $80,000.
The new X5 carries over its 4.4-liter, twin-turbo V8 from the current model, as well as BMW's excellent 3.0-liter, turbocharged inline-six. The X5 xDrive35d, with the 3.0-liter turbodiesel will also be available on the third-generation SUV, but won't hit dealers until early 2014. BMW is stepping outside of the X5's usual bounds, offering a dedicated rear-drive model, available with all the same trimmings as the xDrive vehicles. Head over to BMW's US consumer page and have a go.

2012 Pebble Beach Concept Car Lawn offers a tutorial in cars to come

Sun, 19 Aug 2012 19:35:00 EST

The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is a showcase for some of the world's most exquisite vintage vehicles, but if newer metal is more your speed, the Concept Car Lawn is the place to be.
This year saw models from Bugatti, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, McLaren and Bentley as well as SRT, Hennessey, Infiniti and Lexus among others. The ultimate sampler platter of exotic and concept vehicles saw the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse mingle with the Lamborghini Urus Concept and the mighty Hennessey Venom GT, though we found ourselves particularly smitten with the BMW Zagato Roadster and the Aston Martin Vanquish.
Not that we could go wrong anywhere we looked. The 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed seemed perfectly content parked on the manicured putting green, as did the McLaren MP4-12C Spider. Get cozy with the full gallery below to see the smattering of metal on the lawn.

Hamann M6 Gran Coupe is all flared and shiny

Tue, 10 Sep 2013 05:58:00 EST

Oh, Hamann. After rolling out the ridiculously pink Mystère at this year's Geneva Motor Show, the tuning company has worked its mirror-finishing magic on the BMW M6 Gran Coupe, debuting this, the aptly named "Mirror" at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It sure is shiny, and a full 40 millimeters wider than the standard M6 GC.
Hamann says that the, um, "tailor-made suit" exterior treatment is made up of a new front bumper spoiler with large air intakes, side skirts, a new rear spoiler, and wing extensions out back. And the end result is... well, let's just call it noticeable. The special BMW rides on unique 21-inch wheels and sits a full 25 millimeters closer to the ground, as well.
As far as we can tell, Hamann hasn't upgraded the M6's 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 at all, though there's a new sport exhaust system that "depending on the application area, either noisily announce its presence or purr sportily." Sounds like it's as loud as its newfound appearance.
