With BMW’s launch of the F80 M3, the E90 and E92 are no longer the new kid on the block. Instead, they’ve officially cemented their position in the M3 legacy, and will, from here on out, presumably age like a fine wine. We will watch them depreciate in value for the next few years, but in due time, their place amongst the hierarchy of BMW M cars will ensure they’re a classic in the future.
In perhaps the only video we’ve been more anxious for than the long-awaited release of “32 Hours 7 Minutes,” the team at Stereoscreen has produced “Adrenaline – The BMW Touring Car Story.” Yesterday, the latest trailer for the upcoming movie landed on Vimeo, and we have to say, we couldn’t possibly me more excited.
The film takes a look at BMW’s charismatic drivers and fascinating racing cars from five decades.
H2Oi in Ocean City, Maryland, is easily one of the most anticipated weekends of the year. It is the largest Volkswagen and Audi show North America has to offer, and with the growth of the European car scene, it also offers one of the biggest gatherings of BMWs, Porsches, and lately, even the likes of Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, and others.

Day by day, E30 M3 prices rise. Just a few years ago, $10,000 was a fair price to ask for a well-sorted car, and now, it’s not hard to find stripped shells selling for nearly the same. In all, the M3 is experiencing its birth as a true collector’s car. BMW enthusiasts are now scrambling to find the last remaining cars that have avoided the “collector’s tax.
I am sitting in my hotel room right now, thinking about tomorrow, and wondering to myself: “how hard is it going to be to drive a 425hp car, that I’ve never driven before, at Road America (in the wet)… a legendary track that’s made for men with much more talent to run out of than I’ve got to give.” I’ve only balled up a car by my own mistake once.
