A world without BMW?

  1. No more caps lock for you.
     
  2. I would like to see a world without Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche for just 10 minutes...Just to see what cars would be in that exotic must have list.
     
  3. Its fewer fanboys.


    And I'd be pissed, I'd have one fewer car
     
  4. Didn't the McLaren F1 use a BMW engine?
    If so, I wonder what other engine they'd use...
     
  5. amg
     
  6. The Original engine supplier for the F1 was supposed to be Honda, but they backed out of the contract, that's how BMW got it.
     
  7. bmw was the only one that could make the engine. Honda tried first and couldnt produce the hp at the desired weight

  9. neither did BMW, I think it was a few Kgs too heavy but when BMW told Murray that is had 627hp instead of the 550 asked for he didn't mind too much
     
  10. BMW set the bench mark for the auto industry in many areas, but they just ruined it bad.
     
  11. After all that we would be having problems seeing the new meni and Rolls-Royce.

    I think our Imaginations will stay at their limit, and we will stick to todsay's world.
    In the other world, I would like BMW to be there.
    Thanks for everybody and F U C K That ass hole. I think he knows him self.
     
  12. You came in late. If you were there that night, you would've seen something awesome that would refresh your problem with my KEYBOARD.

    Stay away from it and stick to the topic.
     
  13. no bmw!....that would be a dream almost!
     
  14. no mac F1
    no E500 Porsche Mercedes collaboration to beat E34 M5
    gees the only thing Bavaria would be famous for would be Oktoberfest and Neuschwanstein
     
  15. it is not a world..... it is hell!!
     
  16. A world of very low passenger-car standards.
     
  17. Most luxury-sport cars wouldn't be as good as they are today. BMW's level of engineering meant that other companies had to improve their designs and keep up in order to be competitive.
     
  18. well we'd have to find a new stylist to rag on.
     
  19. for me NO BMW=NO CARS AT ALL
     
  20. for me NO BMW=NO CARS AT ALL
     
  21. Then we wouldnt have this:

    BMW driver’s diary

    The other day I was cruising along as usual coming onto one of my
    motorways, which was very busy with inferior cars.

    First off, I couldn't believe that the volume of traffic DIDN'T slow
    down for me AT ALL as I came off the slip road!

    I had to squeeze into a barely big enough gap between two cars in
    order to get onto my motorway (the driver of the car behind me did realize his mistake though and honked an apology to me with a long blast of his horn.)!

    Unbelievably, I had to do the same again before I could get to the BMW
    lane (why do underlings use this lane? Surely everyone knows it is for
    BMW drivers only?).

    Anyway, once I was in the BMW lane and posing along at 140 mph
    enjoying the adulation that the inferior car drivers were giving me, I noticed an inferior car ahead of me which was not only in the BMW lane of my motorway, but was driving at a ridiculous 70 mph.

    Naturally, I got to within a foot or so of his rear bumper and flashed
    my headlights to remind him he shouldn't be in the BMW lane of my
    motorway and to get out of my way.

    Of course, once he realized it was a BMW behind him, he did just that,
    but I could hardly believe it when he pulled straight back out behind
    me!

    He also tried to keep up with me and when he realized I would out-run
    him, he put on some blue lights in his front grill and urged me to get
    onto the hard shoulder so that he could congratulate me on my excellent car.

    Needless to say, I was eager oblige and when we had stopped, the man
    gave me a piece of paper confirming what I already knew - that my car
    goes fast!

    Apparently he wants everyone to know what a superior car I have, so I
    had to go to court and show them.

    The man also said if I carried on like this they would take my drivers
    license away!

    Can you imagine no need for a driver’s license? See, now THAT's the
    sort of respect you get when you buy and drive a BMW!
     
  22. It says on the supercars.net info that it's a BMW engine...
     
  23. Cadillac?
