    Late last year, we shared a video of the completion of a Mk3 Golf that had had a V8 from a 5 Series BMW swapped into it . That video mostly looked at the car in its current state, though. And while much of the build had been tracked through videos, there was no concise wrap up of the build...

    It's a BMW vs Audi battle from the past. Well, the cars are from the past. The battle was from just last week. It's a BMW E30 M3 vs the Audi RS2. A 2.3L naturally aspirated four against a 2.2L turbo and all-wheel drive. There's a big power difference, but there's a big weight difference too. So...

    Remember when Audi and BMW had a billboard fight? Yeah. Happier days. Well, the days may not be getting much better, but at least BMW and Audi are back at it. This round of billboard battling comes from Tunisia, so unfortunately the copy is French, but some things transcend language. Things...

    Euro fans from all over made the pilgrimage to the great white north (more like great gray north, this particular weekend) to take in the revelry and excess of Eurokracy. Set just outside Montreal, at the ICAR circuit, the show was an exhibit, a track day, a place for silliness, and much more...

    Yes, this is a BMW 2002, which has at no point in time ever been made by Volkswagen or any of its subsidiaries.  So why are we featuring it?  Well, the answer to that question is currently lurking beneath this unassuming 2002's hood. Yes, that's an AEB code 1.8T mounted longitudinally...

    Ok, so it's not a Volkswagen, but we still think it's worthy.  What we have here, is an e30 generation BMW 325i mated to the Volkswagen Group's highly tunable 1.8T four cylinder, and sending power to the rear wheels.  Heads in The Car Lounge just might explode. This car is the result of...

    We just caught a VERY interesting headline today by our buddies over at Jalopnik. The story title reads "BMW 1 Series M Rounds Nürburgring Slower than Audi TT-RS". Okay Jalop, you have our attention. Of course BMW hasn't published a lap time for its new M-ified 1er but the guys at Gawker's...

    We've been hearing whispers of DTM racing somehow linked to Grand-Am all season but official word has finally come through and that news is much better than we'd hoped. According to SPEED, a 12-race US-based DTM championship will begin in the 2013 season. The series is reported to be a support...
