- One month down and it’s fair to say that we’re getting properly stuck into 2020 now and so far so good. The March issue can only mean one thing and that’s the Car of the Year results – as always we had an awesome response with 1000s of you voting and we think you chose a very worthy winner. Head on over to p36 to see the results in full.
BMW / #SEMA / #BMW
As far as feature cars are concerned, our cover car this month might well be our favourite Bavarian machine from the whole of SEMA and we’re not sure any other feature car this year is going to make us feel quite the same way this incredible #S55-swapped #1976-BMW-2002 has. Its owner started out with a tired example of the muchloved classic BM and then proceeded to completely transform it, adding a tubular chassis, custom metal wide-body, slathering the whole lot in stunning San Marino blue before fitting a custom interior and a single-turbo S55 under the bonnet. It’s a breathtaking build on a scale that will simply blow you away.
Elsewhere we have an epic V8-swapped E30 from Poland, a build that will make E30 fans the world over go weak at the knees, and before you get a chance to recover we’re going to hit you with a Group A E30 M3 recreation and that’s the kind of double-dose of classic 3 Series action you need to get you through the winter blues. Keeping it classic we’ve got a simply superb, ultra-clean air-ride E28 that will make you lust after one of these old-school beauties, and then we crank things up with an S14-swapped E36, a stunning custom E60 M5 build and the second mag outing for a certain F80 M3, now boasting a head-turning M-inspired wrap, a lush set of custom wheels and the small matter of 611whp. We’ve also stuffed a guide to the S63 twin-turbo V8 in this issue and there’s loads more to get your teeth into.
Next month we’ll be bringing you our annual international events guide and, on the cover, one of the best E90 M3s we’ve ever seen. So please enjoy everything the March issue of #PBMW has to offer and I’ll see you next time!
