Had no idea BMW made that many. Still, pretty rare in the US these days.
it depends on where you are in the US, I think. Very common where I live, but much more rare in other places. Now that I think of it, besides FL I've only seen it commonly in California and the DC area
The e46 is such a pretty design, though. I wouldn't mind being that dude who keeps an old BMW in the garage just because. My cousin and I both still have the first BmW's we ever had - I have a 2001 330ci and he has a e30. His is absolutely pristine, though
BMW NA M3 Coupe (LHD): 26,202 examples produced from 02/01 through 05/06.
Reference: BMW M Registry
Based on that article - 26k for NA, but 80k+ globally, so we're both right
Although your number is probably more appropriate for the discussion if we are talking about car collecting in the US
I'm surprised by the lack of hybrid car talk here. I don't mean the Prius, or Volt, or whatever, but Porsche, Ferrari, and McLaren.
Well, there's the i8!
Idfnl trolling aside, we're about to see what the first generation of high performance hybrids is all about. The NSX, 918, and that uber Ferrari with the stupid name.
Is the mclaren P4 going to be hybrid too?
I didn't know the NSX was hybrid too. But the P1, 918, and "The Ferrari" will all be.
these cars will basically set the stage and prescedent for non-hypercar performance cars going forward as its almost certain that the technology will trickle down.
^the new diesel hybrids from VW look promising.
I'm thinking about getting a 2nd car. maybe a beater SUV. I mentioned before about my family's fetish for old land cruisers. I remember seeing this one at McCarren last summer and almost wanted to wait around for the owner to see if he wanted to sell it.
the thing is... I don't really see the need for a SUV anymore after using a wagon for the past couple of years. I also don't want to plunk down money for a performance sedan and have it beat to shit here in the city.
if I had the need to own a car in NYC, I'd get the Fiat abarth.
fortunately, I don't have the need. Especially when GreenFrog moves here and our M5 rental agreement comes to fruition.
Well what is there to talk about, they are not out yet.
I'd probably go with a faster Mini edition over the Fiat Abarth. Or maybe a Polestar (or at least a remapped/tuned) Volvo C30...I love the rear end on those.
Well bmw hybrids
I would go Abarth or Volvo, as they are a bit more rare, although Cooper S is a great little city car and with the right driver, they can make grown men scared.
I saw an 8-series on the LSD in Chicago early this morning. Had to do a double take when I was next to it at the light. Very nice design.
Also seeing a couple of Tesla Model Ss around town recently. Those things are eerily quiet
Torque vectoring, seems pretty bad ass. The cutaway was awesome, the car is actually stiffer than a traditional SLS.
Separate names with a comma.
