If you're looking for the pinnacle of CSi performance, and want to stand out in a crowd... look no further because
I have a unique car for sale. Are you offended by the idea of locking up a beautiful 850CSi thoroughbred in some
storage unit somewhere? Does it make you cringe at the idea of these rare and exotic cars rarely being driven on
the open road, depriving the world of their magic, rarity and mystique? Then this car is for you!
This 1995 BMW 850CSi is on offer for sale and is one of 225 US market examples; the lowest production car shipped
to the US in BMW's history. Only 1,510 of these unique cars were ever built worldwide. This example is a special
sleeper CSi that has been well documented on the Internet. All performance upgrades are CA legal and offer the next
level of performance and improvement beyond factory, making this a one-of-a-kind driving experience.
Back in 2007, I had read all over the Internet, all about the great work one of the previous owners (Greg Tessier)
had commissioned Chad at Bullet Performance to do on "chassis #166" and swore that one day I would build a car like
that. This car had a complete engine-out performance rebuild and today has less than 37K miles. In 2010, the
opportunity came for me to actually BUY #166 and so I took it. This is one of the best documented, cleanest 850CSis
in the country and is in excellent condition inside and out. The rest of the interior, engine bay and trunk reflect
a clean and very well cared-for specimen. A recent smoke test in October 2015 revealed absolutely NO leaks in the
case or intake. The interior smells like new, has never been smoked in and has been adult driven only. This car has
won several awards, been in BIMMER Magazine twice, and today is possibly the most well cared for CSi around. Like
the Most Interesting Man in the World says, "I don't always drive an 850CSi, but when I do, I borrow Taylor's
CSi..."
Background: This is a numbered, rare vehicle of limited production. As close to the M8 as you will find on the
road, the CSi was the company flagship of the ninetees. Its V12 power plant was bored and stroked by BMW M GmbH,
the renamed BMW Motorsport. Its displacement of 5576cc is 12 percent larger than the 850Ci's, but its 380 hp is 29
percent greater and the compression ratio was bumped to 9.8:1. Torque increased to 410 lb-ft from 360 in the 850Ci.
And THIS car has been performance enhanced from the factory CSi, and it represents more closely what the Dingolfing
factory should have put out in the ninetees.
This car turns heads everywhere it goes, and has a commanding presence about it, especially the wonderful Spitfire
whine of the starter. This is a California driver's car, always garaged, never exposed to snow.

M235i outpoints 911, Corvette in CR testing, becomes highest-scoring BMW ever

Fri, 27 Jun 2014

Good news just keeps coming for BMW, as Consumer Reports has just handed out a stunner of a verdict - the M235i, a spritely, 320-horsepower coupe that starts at just $43,100 has bested the likes of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and Porsche 911, vehicles that can easily cost twice as much and come to battle with considerably more power.
CR awarded the spiritual successor to the 1 Series M Coupe a score of 98 out of 100, beating out the 911 and the Stingray by three and six points, respectively. In fact, the M235i is remarkably close to the Tesla Model S' 99, making it one of the highest scores CR has ever handed out. It's also, not surprisingly, the highest-rated BMW ever.
Of the M235i's many attributes, Consumer Reports cited the car's performance potential as well as its quiet ride and comfort for front-seat passengers. While it's a shock to no one, CR called out the limited space in the backseats as well as some finicky controls as this Bimmer's biggest shortcomings.

BMW X4 Concept images leak ahead of Shanghai debut

Thu, 04 Apr 2013

Last month, BMW confirmed that its long-awaited X4 crossover would debut next year, but other than imagining a smaller X6-shaped crossover, we really had no idea what the new niche model would look like. That is until a Russian website, Autowp, leaked a handful of embargoed images this morning showing the X4 Concept that will be unveiled in a couple of weeks at the Shanghai Motor Show.
From what we can see of this concept's styling, there are more elements shared with current BMW models than not. The face of the concept is an attractive blend of the current 3 Series sedan and the X3, while the roofline has definitely plucked right from the X6. This thinly veiled concept should carry over almost untouched when it enters production with the exception of the door handles and the overly stylized fascias and side mirrors. According to CarScoops, it will measure the same length as the current X3 and use the same engine lineup as well. Stay tuned, as we'll have more information on this concept shortly.

BMW to change model designations, further yet from actual displacement?

Sat, 12 Jul 2014

Once upon a time, you could look at the back of a trunk lid of a BMW and come up with a pretty fair idea of what sat under its hood. For example, a 320i was a 3 Series with a fuel-injected, 2.0-liter engine, a 328i was a 3 Series with a fuel-injected, 2.8-liter engine and a 328Ci was a two-door 3 Series with the same engine. Those were good days.
Today, though, that simplicity is dead and gone. A 328i now has a 2.0-liter engine, just like the 320i, while the simple "C" designation that was affixed to two-door models has been replaced with a "4," so we have a 428i and a 435i. It gets worse, though. A 550i uses a 4.4-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 (it should be a 544ti, although we'd be willing to hear an argument for "tti") and a 740i uses a 3.0-liter, turbocharged six-cylinder, which is the same engine found in a 535i. It's madness.
And, well, it's about to get madder, if a post on a BMW enthusiast forum is to be believed. According to f30post.com, we could see a shakeup in at least the 3 and 4 Series nomenclature, thanks to an impending refresh that will see the addition of new, turbocharged four- and six-cylinder engines, codenamed B48 and B58, respectively.
