Shit! Shit!

Just got a text that my indie BMW mechanic shot himself inside his shop today. He had a stroke last year which wiped the last couple years off his hard drive. Another BMW tech was helping him out, re-training him, helping him to do baby steps so to speak. Business was slow, but he was back working on cars, doing an…

Happy Valentine's Day to our better halves! Happy Valentine's Day to our better halves!

The cars! Let’s start an appreciation thread. Why do we love what we drive?

Mondays! Mondays!

I give him A for effort. Probably wouldn’t recommend watching at work.

I know that we frown at people who clap after landing I know that we frown at people who clap after landing

but I might make an exception for this one. Ttyymmm and other aviation geeks, you have to watch this propeller plane coming from Sylt landing in Düsseldorf during storm “Friederike” yesterday. I think the pilot brought the plane down solely with the weight of his massive balls.

This photographer should work on his/her/its skills!!! This photographer should work on his/her/its skills!!!

Too dark, object not centered, weird white square... 0/10 wouldn’t recommend for €20.

X-Mas Family Picture X-Mas Family Picture

Don’t we all love that around the holidays you can get the whole family together for a photoshoot? Hers, his, and mine. (F31 320xd; F11 530xd; E61 525i) Will post reviews soon. Spoiler alert: The F11 isn’t exactly my favourite.

Childhood Memories! Childhood Memories!

I’m currently at myparent’s house helping them gut my old rooms. Found a shoe box with some stuff in it.

A little shoutout to our Integra lovers A little shoutout to our Integra lovers

May your day be better than this guy’s.

I almost forgot that it's Wagon Wednesday!  I almost forgot that it's Wagon Wednesday! 

Also called humpday, to remind us that we made some progress towards the bliss called weekend. So let’s admire some hefty behinds.

Wagon Wednesday! Wagon Wednesday!

Or hump day as some like to call it. We’re almost there folks! Let’s see how many doubles mighty ole Kinja will produce.

The Horror! The Horror!

While I admire this guy’s dedication and workmanship, I still think that the world would be a better place if this car had just been crushed. Also, his “donor part” eerily looks like some half or quarter cut from a stolen vehicle that got stripped. Pretty sure BMW doesn’t sell them like this.

Interesting how little it takes to total a car these days. Interesting how little it takes to total a car these days.

My stepdad suffered from a little spatial misjudgement when entering an underground car park the other day. Apparently this is after he tried to buff it out. He never buffed out anything himself, always made me do it, so I don’t know which products he used or tried to use. All I know is that at some point a black…

Good luck with that! Good luck with that!

Reminds me of that pic of a Miata on a dyno where the fronts were on it and the rears were strapped down.

Neat! Neat!

My Russian is a bit rusty, but as it appears, the newest version of the GAZ Gazelle (Russian Sprinter/Transit competitor) has a hidden Easter egg.

What a way to meet new people! What a way to meet new people!

As far as I could verify it this is pretty much internet hearsay, and I wasn’t able to find a truly credible source, but the story goes as follows. Guy in Berlin puts splatter vinyl on X6, Taxi driver spots him and calls the police. They set up a road block with several cruisers blocking him in. No fines mentioned.…

Educate me, oppo! Educate me, oppo!

Are they really only making 6000 Type-Rs for the US ever, or only in the 2018 MY? What I’m asking is, are there going to be 2019 Type-Rs or not? If so, all that dealer markup nonsense would be even more stupid than it already is.

Can anyone identify the car?

Ce he sin bait Ce he sin bait

I thought this might be relevant to your interests.

Someone had the same idea! Someone had the same idea!

Went to get the new roundel and on the way, what do I see coming the other direction? RÜG E 60!!! A silver E60 msport. I desperately need to find that car, park next to it, take pictures, and maybe talk to the owner. Although being a BMW driver he’s probably a colossal.....
