I’ve been itching to replace the 25-year-old coilovers on the M3 with something modern and… not blown. My friends at H&R built a complete custom setup for the M3, and I wanted to take the opportunity to put together the ultimate how-to for assembly and disassembly.
The process is the same for any classic BMW.
The new H&R coilovers include camber plates, adjustable dampers, and aluminum RSMs, just to name a few details. The installation was as easy as could be, too.
Classic car prices are exploding… and us classic ’80s and ’90s BMW fans are watching in terror as cars that were once disposable and cheap have reached new heights in value. The icons of the era, like the E30 M3, are well more than double their cost when new, while poorly kept examples headed for the junkyard have moved from a “few hundred” dollars to a “few thousand.” As these classics age, it makes finding worthwhile examples exceedingly tough, too.
2020 was one wild ride by any conceivable measure, and we’re thankful that 2021 is finally upon us. Not wanting to let all of 2020 go to waste, though, we ended the year with a special event. We partnered with our friends at H&R Springs to give away our would-be SEMA car in the wake of the cancelled event. With a trio of StanceWorks Art Prints available to help aid in the process, we set out to give one lucky entrant a brand new BMW M235i xDrive Gran Coupe…
2020 has been one hell of a year, no matter who you are or where you’re from. We figured, why not end it with something special? You read the title right: we’ve partnered with H&R Springs to give away a brand-new 2021 BMW M235i xDrive Gran Coupe, along with $5,000 in cash. If that doesn’t pique your interest, we’re not sure what will.
Imola Red. Named for the famed racing circuit that plays home to the Italian Grand Prix, it represents one factor: speed, and it has become a cult favorite of BMW fans since its first appearance on the E36 M3 GT. It is, by most measures, a rare color, no matter the chassis it is offered upon, old or new. Both the color’s aesthetic and history are fitting, though, for the F10 M5, introduced in 2011 as the fifth-generation of the iconic sports sedan.
