At the BMW Welt in Munich, Germany, Automotive Rhythms had a chance to witness the much-anticipated BMW 3.0 CSL (Coupe Sport Lightweight) which honors the 50th Anniversary of BMW M and its storied racing passion. Fifty of these prestigious and mostly hand-built machines will be produced by a special team of 30 associates at BMW M GmbH in Munich.

The original 3.0 CSL (E9) aka “The Batmobile” was engineered in 1972 and competed in 1973 where it won the Nürburgring 6 Hours driven by Amon and Stuck. A 2015 3.0 CSL concept, on display at the BMW Museum, also served as an inspiration for the newly introduced 50th Anniversary 3.0 CSL by BMW M.

The current RWD BMW 3.0 CSL features unique carbon fiber bodywork, a 560-horsepower 3.0-liter straight 6-cylinder M TwinPower Turbo gas engine, a 6-speed manual transmission, 20” and 21” lightweight

Buying gifts for a car enthusiast isn’t always the easiest task. These 10 gifts are guaranteed to make anyone with a car, truck, or motorcycle VERY happy!

1.The LED PUCK Light!


It doesn’t matter if you are working in the garage or underneath your sink in the house, every person should have a quality light in their toolbox. This light pumps out an impressive 600 lumens on high and 300 on low and can run up to 3 hours before you need a full charge.

What I really like about this is that it has a magnetic base, a hook and a 360° swivel head. When I say this light will work ANYWHERE, I mean it!

The best part is the price. Coming in at around $32, you can’t beat this deal.

The United States Army continues to show interest in electric vehicles and this time they’re enlisting a specially developed Canoo Light Tactical Vehicle (LTV).

Set to be used for demonstration and analysis purposes, the Canoo LTV looks similar to the company’s upcoming Pickup but it features a single cab configuration as well as a raised suspension and 32-inch all-terrain tires. The truck also comes equipped with a proprietary all-wheel drive system that develops up to 600 hp (447 kW / 608 PS), which is more than the standard model that is targeted to have 500+ hp (373 kW / 507 PS).

Those aren’t the only changes as the LTV as a new front bumper with apparent D-ring mounts. We can also see a modified rear body and bed.

how to change a flat tire
  • You will need a jack, lug wrench, and spare tire to change a flat.
  • Changing a flat tire only takes a few steps and can be done in minutes.
  • Always change a tire in a safe, flat area away from traffic.

The last thing anybody wants to do is pull over to the side of a busy road and change a tire. However, knowing how to replace a tire is essential if you get a flat and can no longer drive safely. While roadside services can come in handy and will get you out of many situations, it’s always best to prepare for the worst as a driver. A dead phone battery or poor signal can prevent you from getting the help you need and leave you stranded on the side of the road.

It’s not fun, but all drivers should learn how to change a flat tire properly. Keep

Unlike some, I didn’t have a strong connection with Honda’s last Civic Type R hatch, or even a desire to ever drive one, primarily because of the outrageously-styled body kit that inflicted it with an overtly cartoonish profile.

That was early 2018, before I ended up in the driver’s seat of a Championship White FK8 Type R and proceeded to systematically take apart a number of the more challenging sections in the Victorian high country in less than ideal conditions – it was a bit damp and a bit sketchy.

Just to make sure we didn’t drink too much of Honda’s Kool-Aid, we brought along two of its toughest rivals; the Ford Focus RS and Renault Megane R.S.

The Focus was my preordained favourite for its added poke and all-wheel drive stickiness on damp surfaces, while the Megane wasn’t far behind in the power stakes but also gained all-wheel
