I actually met Andy Wilsheer who is featured here shooting an out of control Funny Car dragster as it bares towards him. Andy shot my BMW E36 back in 2007. Here are some pictures of the photoshoot with him in it.

In Japan, there is a racing series specifically for BMW appropriately called the BMW CUP.
It’s open to all BMW models but mostly dominated by M3s from E30, E36, E46 and E92 models. I”ve collected some pictures from it and thought I share it here.
Here is the pack of Bavarian bombers getting ready to attack the track in the most recent race, Round 4.

And here’s another shot from a previous round.

Sweet n’ Low

How low can you go? I don’t mean ride height but offset-wise. With lower offsets, you get more lip but the wheels do protrude more. It’s a calculated way of getting a really nice stance if this is your style.
I don’t think I have the guts to run such low offsets on my car without having a proper widebody kit but the owner of this BMW E36 certainly has.

Pay to Play

I remember when I had my 19×11 BBS LM for my widebody E36 when everyone was running 19×10. BBS LeMans wheels were common in 18s but when 19s was released, I knew I had to get it.
Here is a picture of the 19×11 and 19×8.5 after the Yokos were mounted.

(Yoko AVS had such a hard sidewall that the 275 barely stretched on the 11s)
Back then, it was such a rare size that we had to special ordered a set from Germany. BBS had told us that it was the …
