I've enjoyed driving this clean and gorgeous silver classic beauty in Southern California for the last 20 years. According to the mechanic who sold her and restored her for me, she was in Berkeley, CA before that. So, given how little rust there is, I am pretty sure that this is a "California" car. I've only taken her out occasionally for pleasure and had kept her tucked away under cover most of the time. I am only selling because I am moving back to Hawaii where it'll be difficult to find someone qualified to look after her. The body and the undercarriage is clean and solid; the paint is beautiful without any bubbles or pits. I've proudly received countless complements from passersby. She's a pleasure to drive and has plenty of pep. Engine starts up quickly and easily. Here are some of the repairs/restorations done within the last few years... - Installation/replacement of a newly rebuilt steering box, power steering pump, various steering components & the front-end suspension - Replaced master brake cylinder - Installed a "new" dashboard with no chips or cracks - Replaced the water pump and radiator- Minor rust remedial and paint work.- Installed a new ignition system I am not a car collector nor a car buff so there are a few minor flaws on the car that have not bothered me enough to fix but you should know exist... - Minor rust spots where the trunk lid meets the body. - Driver-side power window motor was deactivated and has been replaced with a hand crank.- Driver-side window has some scratches. - Driver-side door has one light paint scratch which I think could be buffed out. - Shifter boot is worn out at the base. - Clock does not work. - Seats have good upholstery but the driver side cushion is getting a bit thin from usage. - Air Conditioning system is deactivated. I didn't want to spend the money to find out what is the problem on something I rarely use.- Missing tool kit. - Headliner looks worn and may need some work. - Wood trims on both doors have some chips and cracks on the ends. I can send you photos of the items above and any other features if you'd like to examine them in details. You will be purchasing this car as is and without any warranty/guarantee from me. I am available to show you the car at pretty much any decent hours. I am located in downtown LA. Please email me with your telephone number if you'd like to speak to me directly. I require a non-refundable $2,000 deposit via Paypal or bank wire transfer. Balance must be paid with a bank wire-transfer within 7 days of auction close.Buyer is responsible for all applicable fees, taxes, custom duties and shipping costs.Please consider your fringe costs before bidding. Please do not bother asking me to misstate the purchase price on the registration paperwork. It will be cause for termination of the sale and I will keep your deposit. Thank you for your interest. Good luck on your bidding. ALOHA!

BMW unleases new M4 as MotoGP safety car

Mon, 10 Mar 2014

BMW has some considerable racing prowess to crow about, and draws on those credentials to create models like the new M4. But it's not about to rest on the laurels it's won at the end of innumerable races past and present. Mere months after the release of its latest performance coupe, BMW has already revealed a new M4 touring car for the DTM series, and has now unveiled its new M4 safety car for the MotoGP motorcycle championship.
Revealed on the BMW M Facebook page and set to debut at the front of the grid at the season opener in Qatar a couple weeks from now, the new M4 safety car is just the latest in a long string of official vehicles it has provided to the MotoGP series. Previous examples have included everything from the 1M Coupe to the M6 and the X6 M.
Like its predecessors, the M4 safety car features emergency lighting, special equipment and of course BMW's trademark white livery with red, navy and light blue stripes that, in this arrangement, give the new Williams Martini Racing livery a run for its money. Logos promote the BMW M Performance Parts you can buy to bring your own Bimmer up to spec, which on this car isn't likely have changed much from stock.

2015 BMW Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe

Thu, 22 May 2014

Alpina has been lovingly modifying BMWs for half a century, but as we learned during a tour of the company's HQ in Buchloe, Germany, Alpina has been in the wine distribution business for nearly as long. The company has an estimated million bottles on reserve in two warehouses and a beautiful wine cellar/tasting room on property in western Bavaria, just yards from where its 1,500 hand-crafted automobiles per year are produced.
What does that have to do with the new B6 Gran Coupe? Well, it may help make sense of the overall character of Alpina's automobiles, especially vis-à-vis the similarly priced, similarly powerful M Cars that BMW sells in far greater numbers. Alpinas are built by wine connoisseurs for wine connoisseurs, or wine connoisseur types; they are not rip-snortin' racecars for the road - that's M's domain. Alpinas are esoteric, rich in character and nuanced. But make no mistake: they are very, very fast.
Our brief first drive of the B6 Gran Coupe - the only 6 Series-based Alpina we'll get in the US for 2015 - took place on German autobahns and Austrian alpine roads, where the car is more at home than anywhere in the world, both literally and figuratively. With 540 horsepower and 540 pound-feet of torque on tap from its twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 and xDrive all-wheel drive, the B6 is said to be able to hit 60 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds on its way to a top speed of 198 mph, a massive 43 mph faster than the M6, which is electronically limited to 155 mph. Yet even at insane speeds - we saw an indicated 190 mph on one particularly lonely stretch of Autobahn - the B6 feels more luxurious than sporty, taking the countenance of a low-slung Bentley Continental GT or an Aston Martin Rapide S, not a knife-edged supercar. It doesn't feel scintillating like a Porsche 911 GT2; rather it feels rock steady, like the 4,780-pound luxury sedan it is.

Xcar checks if BMW's i8 offers moves as electrifying as its looks

Sat, 02 Aug 2014

If you were to plot the general opinion about hybrids since their introduction among auto enthusiasts, the resulting graph would likely be shaped somewhat like a "V." In the beginning interest was high, simply due the novelty of these new powertrains, then the line would gradually fall as the models got the stereotype of being boring commuters. Today, though, things might be back on the upswing. Vehicles like the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 and BMW i8 are showing that a hybrid doesn't have to be synonymous for dull. In its latest video, Xcar Films aims to find out if BMW's electrified sports coupe actually earns the brand's old moniker as the ultimate driving machine.
While the focus here is on what the i8 is like behind the wheel, one of the main highlights for the viewer is the interesting ways that Xcar shoots the BMW. It's not necessarily a beautiful vehicle, but seeing it in motion reveals all sorts of little intricacies that still photos don't pick up. For example, our eye catches the flying buttresses and little crevices scooped out of the corners when we get a look at the rear. It's just a fun car to look at.
With its 1.5-liter, turbocharged, three-cylinder engine and electric motor, the i8 positions itself as the future of automotive performance. But its intriguing looks and cutting-edge use of carbon fiber would be wasted if the coupe didn't drive well. We won't spoil the final verdict, though, you'll have to watch the video above.
