It seems that, for any BMW fanatic, there’s an undeniable allure to the idea of owning an E30 M3 race car. It’s something I’ve found impossible avoid myself, and clearly, Andrew Bishay shares the sentiment.

Nitto has teamed up with their friends at Toyota USA to tackle some of the best off road terrain in Southern California.
