After an 18-year hiatus, BMW has revived the 8 Series name with the BMW Concept 8 Series. The automaker's new flagship model could help the manufacturer compete against Mercedes-Benz, which overtook BMW last year as the world's largest luxury automaker.
Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Classic Car Overview
Few cars receive better reviews than the BMW M3. Reviewers love the balanced performance, the precise handling, and that legendary BMW straight 6. This fine example has just 61328 well cared-for miles. All maintenance, even oil changes, was performed professionally. The car has an ultra-clean look in Alpine White with a black leather interior and is all original. A subtle rear lip spoiler, staggered split-10-spoke aluminum wheels, and of course, those highly respected M logos, provide visual clues to the performance capabilities of this superb E46 Bimmer. The BMW straight 6 engine has achieved world-class status for its amazing smoothness, its flat torque curve, and its ability to rev to 8000 rpm. Another world-class component is the Getrag 6-speed manual transmission. A MacPherson strut front and double wishbone rear suspension provides great tracking and control. Four-wheel antilock disc brakes work with Dynamic Stability Control for superior stopping power and safety. The Ultimate Driving Machine offers many other premium amenities to enhance your comfort and driving experience. The supportive leather bucket seats are heated, and power adjustment is available for tilt, cushion height, backrest angle, and thigh support. Memory can be set for up to four different drivers and their preferences for climate control settings, seat and mirror adjustments, and other customizable features. The music system is a high-end unit from Harman/Kardon, a brand favored among audiophiles. It features a 6-disc CD changer. Of course there are power windows and locks, cruise control, and keyless entry, along with a power sunroof. A premium wheel and tire combination helps the car stick to the road and look great doing it. BMWs attractive split spoke aluminum wheels are staggered sized to accommodate Michelin Pilot Sport ultra-performance tires -- 245/40ZR18 in front and 275/35ZR18 in back. The original owners packet contains the Owners Manual, Owners Manual for the Radio, Service and Warranty Information, and a separate booklet on Caring for your vehicle. Theres also a BMW Center Directory with maps to direct you to BMW dealerships, and a guide explaining the operation of the onboard diagnostic system (OBD). Other thoughtful items include tow fittings that come in the luggage compartment that can be attached to the vehicle to pull or be pulled by another vehicle, and an onboard tool kit. Heres a comfortable car you can drive every day -- loaded with convenience features. Yet when its time to do a little driving, the 2002 BMW M3 takes a back seat to no one.
