  Reader’s Ride: After Looking 34 Years He Finds 1974 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 of His Dreams I have been into muscle cars since I was 14 and have owned (and still own) many: a 1969 Chevelle, 1972 El Camino, 1970 Nova, 1975 and 1977 Trans Ams, 1970 Buick Wildcat, 1971 Camaro, pro touring 1970 Chevelle, and this one, a 1974 Z28. Research Research New Used New & Used Make (e.g. Mazda) Model (e.g. MX-5 Miata) I had been looking for one since I was 14 and saw one in a neighbor's garage with the big Z28 callout on the hood. I'm 49 now, and last year I finally found one. It came from a collection in Maine. This was the last car he had left, and he still had not decided for sure to sell it, but we worked out a deal.

At BMW, the CS moniker has traditionally been used to designate sporty coupe models, dating back to the 3200CS in 1961. It migrated to the 2000CS and then was used on the first-gen 6-series. The fastest 8-series became the 850CSi, and the most awesome E46 M3 was the CSL. Now BMW is launching the first four-door CS in the form of the limited-edition M3 CS.

As you might expect, the two-letter appellation brings with it some notable performance upgrades. For starters, the S55 inline-six engine is bumped up to 453 horsepower at 6250 rpm, significantly more than the regular M3’s 425 horses and in excess of the 444 ponies available to M3 buyers who spec the $4750 Competition package. Maximum torque increases, too, peaking at 443 lb-ft versus 406 for other M3 models. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is standard and, unfortunately, the only choice for the CS; the six-speed manual available on lesser M3s is not an option.

The factory-stated zero-to-60-mph time drops to 3.7 seconds, down from 3.9 or 3.8 with the Competition package, and our tests of the current-generation M3 say that should be about right. All CS models will have the Driver’s package (a $2500 option on the M3), which means its top speed is increased to 174 mph, and all buyers will receive a one-day driving class at either of BMW’s U.S. Performance Centers.

2018 Kia Rio First Drive: Small and Proud of It

  2018 Kia Rio First Drive: Small and Proud of It A cohesive package with room to growOnce again available as a four-door sedan or hatchback, the new Rio is longer, lower, and wider than its predecessor. Unlike the Ford Fiesta sedan, which looks like it's an awkward teen trying on its older brother's duds, the Rio has some proportional fashion sense. Hints of Optima grace the lines of the sheetmetal, and the signature Kia grille up front flows nicely across the prow and seamlessly into the headlights. On the sedan, the taillights echo the K900 for a look that's more serious and mature than the previous model.

The CS’s performance enhancements were achieved with software updates, and BMW’s M division has deployed software engineers to recalibrate the chassis as well, with specific settings for the adaptive suspension, the electrically assisted power steering, the Active M Differential, and the stability-control system. The exhaust system is tuned to emit an especially aggressive sound. Carbon-ceramic brakes are optional.

BMW says the CS is lighter than a standard M3 by an impressive 110 pounds. Lightweight components include a carbon-fiber hood, and the carbon-fiber roof that’s optional on other M3s is standard here. Exposed carbon fiber is used for the front splitter and the decklid spoiler, and the rear diffuser is borrowed from the M4 GTS. The M3 CS rides on Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, sized 265/35ZR-19 up front and 285/30ZR-20 in the rear. The design of the matte-gray wheels is said to be inspired by DTM race cars.

The interior of the M3 CS includes some special touches as well. Standard equipment includes sport seats, navigation, and a Harman/Kardon audio system. The merino-leather-trimmed interior has an exclusive gray and black color scheme, and you start the engine by pushing a red button. The cabin trim is wrapped in microsuede where you might otherwise expect wood, aluminum, or carbon fiber; the steering wheel, center console, and hand brake feature the same material. Of course, there’s plenty of CS badging, too. One neat touch: tricolor M stripes on the seatbelts.

You can place your order for the first ever four-door CS in May 2018, but it may be a good idea to get in touch with your dealer beforehand to ensure you make it to the top of the list. Pricing will be announced closer to launch, but don’t expect it to be cheap.

Refreshing or Revolting: 2019 Ford Edge .
Is it thumbs up or down for the refresh and new ST model?The 2019 Ford Edge maintains the hexagonal grille introduced in 2015, but it's now smaller with more rounded corners. The headlights have also been redesigned and no longer touch the edges of the grille. Meanwhile, the front bumper has been completely restyled with new foglight surrounds and a different intake opening in the lower front valance. The ST model gets a larger grille with mesh insert and red ST badging and a unique front valance with black accents.
