Well I can’t believe that’s Christmas over and we’re into another year already! I hope you had a good one, I’m assuming you ate too much food and I hope you relaxed with a bit of PBMW while digesting a giant turkey on a comfy sofa. So, plans for the new year? Most importantly, car plans? I’ve got a few things lined up for the E39 and the 630i that I’m excited about and I wager you’ve all got ideas in mind for show season. Before you know it the skies will be blue once more (well, less grey at least) and we’ll all be getting sunburnt in a field somewhere. You know it’s true, and you know you love it!
Of course, you’re no doubt wondering what 2018 might hold as far as the next 13 issues of PBMW are concerned and the plan here is to bring you even more of the awesome feature cars that you love. We’ve got some seriously nice machines lined up that are definitely worth getting excited about. Whether you’re looking for something inspirational or aspirational, #2018 is going to be full of awesome BMs to enjoy. We’ll also be celebrating our 20th anniversary and we’re planning to do so in style with a special issue, so look out for more details on that very soon.
As for the here and now, we’ve decided to get the year started with a bang. Our cover car this month is just awesome; you’ve no doubt seen this incredible #SEMA build somewhere online and I am so excited to have it in the mag. In a nutshell: rusty E9 3.0 CS gets transformed into wide-body E9 CSL tribute with turbo S52 power. Put simply, it’s an absolutely epic build. How do you follow that? Well how about with a wide-body F80 M3 packing 800hp? Or StreetFighter LA’s insane wide-arch RB26- swapped E36? If that’s a bit too much for you then we’ve got a pair of stunning 2.8 M52-swapped machines from closer to home, one a UK E28 and the other an Irish E30, both utterly gorgeous.
So, sit back, relax and enjoy this fresh issue of PBMW as we rustle up the next one for you to enjoy, and we’ve got some pretty tasty BMs lined up…
