1988 Bmw M3 on 2040-cars
Elmira, New York, United States
BODY:Recently painted in its original salmon silver (lachsilber) color. The paint is in excellent condition, virtually
all of the trim, badges, grills, window seals, wiper arms, antenna, etc were replaced with new OEM parts. All
original body panels with matching VIN. Absolutely no rust. The rear wing has no cracks. There are a few blemishes
I will try to describe. I bumped into a parked car and sustained a small dent to the drivers side front quarter
panel, about 4” across, and in the same area the front corner of the hood is bent, about 1a body shop.
The original cardinal red interior was completely replaced with an all black interior from a low mileage (50k) E30
M3. This included all of the door cards and handles, rear panels, front and rear seats. All of the seats have their
original leather and are in great condition no tears or splits with the normal patina and wear you would expect in
a car of this vintage. The dash was replaced and is in excellent condition with no cracks or fading but it does
have a small blemish, 2” long, above the glove box probably from someone forcing the latch open. the steering
wheel is the evo 3 type small size 270mm M-tech 2, the shifter is the Evo 3 type. The radio and speakers are all
original but not working because I don’t have the code. The sunroof works as it should. It has new OEM floor
mats. The carpet is in good condition with one small blemish in the back footwell which is under the floor mat.
BBS style 5 17” with mirror polished split rim, silver centers and spokes, and gold plated hardware. They have a
few stone chips and very minimal scuffs on the rim. Overall excellent condition. Tires are Khumo Ecsta 21/40 ZR 17.
Bilstein shocks and springs, lowered about an inch.
Strömung stainless steel
The original S14, 2.3 L, 4 cylinder with matching VIN. Starts easily every time and runs strong with no issues.
Always used Mobil 1 full synthetic

We've already seen the upcoming BMW 2 Series testing in both coupe and convertible body styles, and now we're getting our first glimpse inside the new entry-level coupe. Judging by the sportier exterior that we've seen in previous spy shots, this car appears to be equipped with an M-Sport package, so this is likely not what the base interior will look like.
Compared to the current 1 Series, this new coupe will have cleaner cabin design including fewer buttons on the center stack and an instrument panel with more of a dual-brow design. This car has cloth seats with what appears to be a suede-like accent trim and blue stitching, and the seat's pattern is mimicked on the door panel. The 2 Series will also have a better integrated iDrive controller that operates the widescreen display mounted atop the instrument panel in a similar fashion as what we've seen recently on the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and CLA-Class.
As mentioned about the exterior, the bigger wheels, blue brake calipers, dual exhaust outlet and subtle decklid spoiler all lead us to believe that this is the M-Sport, but it isn't sporty enough - inside or out - to make us think this is the rumored M2 model.
The 2014 Formula Drift series kicked off last weekend in Long Beach, and saw Chris Forsberg, who you'll recall went mad and drifted around a warehouse in an Infiniti M, take the title behind the wheel of his Hankook Tire Nissan 370Z (shown above).
Forsberg really ran away with the first round of competition, outscoring his closest opponent, second-place finisher Kenneth Moen and his Bridges Racing Nissan 240SX, by 20 points. Third place was 2013 championship winner Michael Essa and his Yokohama BMW M3, 30.5 points behind Forsberg.
In the manufacturers' title, Nissan took an early lead with 122 points, which isn't a huge surprise considering five of the top ten drifters were piloting either a Z or a product of the brand's S platform. Ford, which had two drivers (Justin Pawlak and Vaughn Gittin, Jr.) in the top ten, took home second place, while BMW is currently third in the manufacturers' standings.
Jay Leno puts eight wheels on display this week for Jay Leno's Garage from a quartet of retro-inspired BMW motorcycles. They are the creations of husband and wife team Larry and Carol Romestant, who build each one in their home garage.
Larry is a former aerospace engineer who loves BMW bikes, especially the K models. Now, he's combining his passion with a real talent for fabrication to build his own cycles with his wife. With Larry and Carol the only ones working on these projects, it takes them six to nine months to build each one. In addition to the old-school looks, the motorcycles are supposed to be a bit more user friendly than stock. For example, one of them ditches the standard five-speed gearbox in favor of a six-speed unit to be a little more comfy when cruising at high speeds.
Since there isn't enough time to take all four of them for a ride, Jay picks his favorite to test out on the open road. Scroll down to see which one he chooses.
