BMW M3 CSL Manual Conversion Kit Costs From $4,500

  BMW M3 CSL Manual Conversion Kit Costs From $4,500 How do you improve on perfection? Like this. "The Ultimate Driving Machine" – that's what a BMW is supposed to be, but the E46 M3 CSL, one of the German brand's greatest hits, came up ever so slightly short on that promise. Sure, there's no doubt it was – and still is – an amazing car, but its lack of a manual option was something of a disappointment. Until now. Banbury-based BMW specialist Everything M3s is now offering manual gearbox conversion kits for the E46 model M3 CSL, which replaces the "harsh" paddle-operated sequential that came from the factory.

The Bavarian parent company wants to convert the brand completely to electric by 2030. Until then, there should still be combustion engines.

Three model families with electric motors: This is how BMW presents the range of products for the Mini brand. Its manager Bernd Köber also announced to Wirtschaftswoche: "We will electrify the entire portfolio by 2024." is thus making the car manufacturer convert this brand faster than others. But by 2030, the small car series will also have combustion engines - even the diesel models will remain. "Mini could then be an electric brand in 2030," assumes Köber.

"Power of Choice" is what BMW calls the multi-lane timetable familiar from the core brand. The customer can choose between gasoline, diesel, plug-in hybrid and fully electric models. However, the group changes the model range of the series. The classic three-door, which came with an electric drive as Cooper SE last year, is to be flanked by two new crossover creations. Mini classifies one below the Countryman - the term city SUV is in circulation. Even with the small car, "Power of Choice" no longer applies: Allegedly, it is only electric. The situation is different with the Countryman replacement: Mini is not planning an electric version until 2024. The company is still discussing a different name for the crossover successor.

Atop the R 18 platform, new touring cruiser adds a shield and bags.The info we got makes it clear the R 18 Classic builds upon the established platform of the standard R 18, with all the main elements that define that bike being carried over, including the double-loop steel tube frame, open running universal shaft drive, and that 1,802cc “Big Boxer” engine at its core. BMW reminds us it’s the “most powerful two-cylinder boxer engine ever used in motorcycle series production,” and we can vouch for its power; when EOC Gales tested the R 18 in his First Ride review and put it on the dyno, it cranked out 81.3 hp.
