Car Mods – BMW Wagon Makeover w/ 3M 1080 Color Wrap & Tints

Quick: name the top three tweaks to make any car cooler overnight? The order is debatable but we’d say tinted glass, up-sized wheels and a fresh paint color.  (Half points if you said to debadge and dechrome the beast from nose to tail:) We tackled all five of these mods to give new life to @thewanderingwheelman’s BMW 3 series wagon. The 2007 328Xi Touring is a fairly timeless q-car that still drives like a champ even a decade after it first hit the streets.  This was back before turbos took over so the honey wagon runs the smooth and soulful BMW inline six and the rear-biased AWD system.   Factory stance was pretty good from the start in terms of a racy lowness, but the stock rims barely filled the wheel arches. The factory paintwork is similarly inoffensive as a metallic dark grey – but was ripe for some color after …

Ford GT Colors 9

  When we buy a car, there are many things to consider. For some people, it’s all about horsepower and style, and for others its practicality and fuel consumption.

2017 KIA Cadenza Limited – Road Test Review + 2 Videos

There is real buzz around the brand-new 2017 Kia Cadenza. Car reviewers near and far have been shocked by its lux feel and right-priced tech. Are they right? We spent a week in the loaded Cadenza Limited to find out.  Hard on throttle and chucking it around corners… and honestly expecting the worst.  After all, it is a hard time for near-luxury sedans.  Cars like the Maxima, Avalon, Lacrosse or Chrysler 300 are suffering from low sales and a crowded marketplace.  Meanwhile, the deeply unfun Lexus ES still hoovers up sales for reasons no one truly understands. How can Cadenza carve a place for itself in the $35-45k pricerange?  We have a few dozen photos, two high-def videos and a full writeup to find out. Spoiler alert: Cadenza is fun and sporty as well as high-tech and high-quality.  A sport-luxury sedan to take on the world’s best. But first, check …

BMW M4 By Cam-Shaft.de Goes Custom in Battleship Grey/Orange

Out on the ocean they say never to mess with any grey ships — and that will be a good rule at the stoplights now too. One of the worst things about this generation M3 and M4 is the color selection.  Each of the standard colors are dull while BMW Individual shades add $5k and endless order complexity.  SO of course there is a thriving aftermarket in personalizing the machines. CamShaft out of Germany did this light stage one mod with a powerchip, KW coilover suspension and vinyl body wrap.  It is a primer grey/blue with a smooth sheen unlike most glossy paint. The results are quite sexy and tasteful with orange color accents and black BBS alloys.  A color accent on the tire lip is nice and on-trend, too.  A few of the military warnings are a nice winky final touch.   BMW M4 By Cam-Shaft.de CAM SHAFT UNMASKS …
