It’s very hard not to like BMW cars, or at least appreciate them. This powerhouse Bavarian manufacturer made a very strong impact on the whole car industry with numerous quality models that were durable, fast, beautiful, and for the lack of the more appropriate word – fascinating. There is simply something special about the way Bimmers look and behave, which makes it very hard to mistake them for any other brand. The fact that this is the case all the way from the time when the first BMW, the 3/15, hit the market in the 1920’s makes it even more noteworthy. Now, let us try to find top five models that stand out the most.
Car Throttle published an article (or informative post) about Five Modifications That Ruin Performance. How many are you guilty of? I think their title does not do the article justice though, it is five things that make your car dangerous to drive.
The top five most dangerous from their list include
- Excessive negative camber
- Stretched Tires
- Stiff Springs
- Zero ground clearance
- Drilled Rotors
You can read more about their findings on their site… but they went more than just saying they are ruining your performance, they actually explained the details as to WHY.
