    Here is another recent review, somewhat mixed. But as did Harry in the Harry's Garage video, I think the author attempts to put the Z8 into the proper context of being a Grand Tourer rather than a...

    Apparently he is on a mission to acquire a selection of BMWs from their "Golden Era", the late nineties into the early 00's, all in titanium silver. Along with the Z8, he already has purchased an...

    I'm sad to report that Eric Keller, Ceo of Enthusiast Auto Group (EAG), died on Thursday of injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. Eric was very well known within the collectible BMW hobby,...

    Gorgeous! Looks like the love child of a Z8 and Ferrari Roma. Why can't BMW make something like this instead of the cartoonish vehicles they currently sell?
