    I do not recognize that particular car, but the e39 wagon is an awesome family machine. We used to have a 2001 525iT. Good handling, quiet, comfortable, and will cruise at well above the posted...

    While the staggered setup looks cool, I don't think it would really help you in autocross. The wider rear wheels and tires would make the car less willing to rotate. This is not really a desired...

    Funny, but it looks VERY staged to me. "Grandma" did not hit the car anywhere near hard enough to deploy the airbag.

    We have WS-50s on the Audi Allroad and that...

    The thermostat is a weak point on these cars. I have already had to replace the thermostat on the 525iT and now the one on the 330i is starting to leak.

    :eek: Wow. What a mess.

    They were just waving the yellow flag until the 3rd car crashed.

    I agree with Biggins and Woody. Put them in the BMW classes and let them compete there. That way they will have some competition and still be eligible for class trophies.
