The Kith brand is two things: a multifunctional lifestyle brand and progressive retail establishment. BMW is also two things: a posh luxury automotive brand and a horsepower-happy precision-crafted automotive company. In both, the two sides of each brand are not mutually exclusive.

A new collaboration between Kith and BMW puts that premise to the pavement. The 2022 BMW M4 Competition x Kith interprets the redesigned 2022 BMW M4 Competition coupe as a showcase of the Kith brand. It is limited to 150 units worldwide.

New York native Ronnie Fieg is the founder of Kith and a lifelong BMW enthusiast. He owns a classic E30 generation BMW M3 that he's customized to his taste. Today's M4 Competition is considered the "spiritual successor" of the E30. Fieg has created a one-of-one BMW M4 Competition Design Study by Kith that mimics the specifications – and Kith design touches – of his own classic vehicle.

Additionally, Fieg has created a line of apparel and accessories inspired by classic BMW design. They're available exclusively through Kith's retail locations, including online, beginning today. The collection, featuring 94 styles of apparel and accessories, is Kith's largest single offering to date.

"Everything we work on at Kith has to come from an authentic place," said Fieg. "Some of my favorite memories from growing up came from going to visit my grandfather and riding around in his BMWs in the 1980s. I remember he had an E21 320i and that his prized possession was a white E30 M3. These moments in my life really shaped my passion for BMW, so working on this project with them has brought everything full circle."

The partnership features one major milestone for BMW. It's the first time that the company has altered its iconic roundel badge for a collaboration. Merging logos is a trademark of Kith design. The fused logo created for the BMW M4 Competition x Kith adds an extra ring around the BMW roundel in the BMW M colors of light blue, dark blue and red, as well as details in bright lettering focusing on Kith and the collaboration. The rear decklid of the BMW M4 Competition x Kith features a black Kith logo with the iconic tri-color BMW M stripes.

BMW will sell the models exclusively in matte paint finishes of Frozen Black, Frozen Dark Silver and Frozen Brilliant White. They retain all the usual under-hood and underbody components. There are also unique interior color bursts and accents throughout the cabin.

The BMW M4 Competition x Kith will be available for preorder with a starting MSRP of $109,250 plus the usual destination and handling fees.

A long roof with a V8. What could be better?

Bring a Trailer

Spend enough time reading car reviews, and you'll probably notice a trend among writers. We all love wagons, despite the fact that almost nobody in the United States buys them anymore. If there's a wagon that could appeal to almost anyone, however, it's this m2003 BMW 540i M Sport with a very special engine swap. It's up for auction right now and could be yours – or mine.

It doesn't get much better for a car nerd than this. The 2003 540i Sport Wagon has had its engine swapped for an S62 4.9-liter V8 and a six-speed manual transmission. For those of you not obsessed with E39 generation 5-Series cars, that's the engine from the M5 of the time. Here, it sounds every bit as raw and powerful as it does in the car it originally came from, and the six-speed manual gearbox makes this an enthusiast's dream.

Inside, the black leather appears to be in great shape, considering the car's advanced age and mileage, though this wagon is lacking the in-dash navigation system that the M5 carried at the time. It's probably for the best, given that an 18-year-old computer would feel absolutely ancient compared to even the cheapest infotainment system today.

This auction is a little more than halfway through and the current bit is just over $20,000. There's quite a bit of time left for that to climb substantially, but at even twice the price it'd hard to feel cheated if you won.

Grab this 2000 BMW M5 before someone else does

Classic good looks and a rowdy V8 are the story here.

We could spend all day bemoaning the rise of car auction sites and their impact on prices, but that won't do any good. The damage has been done. Of course, there are exceptions to the sky-high pricing we typically see on auction sites, and some cars are worth the money. This 2000 BMW M5 is one of them, and its current auction bid of just $15,250 makes us think it could go for a decent price.

The E39 M5 is one of the most legendary and sought-aftersports sedans of all time. Its 4.9-liter V8 produced 394 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque when it was new, which isn't all that crazy by today's standards, but an almost 400-horsepower family car was a big deal at the time. That magical engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive – an enthusiast's dream recipe.

Inside, this car's tan leather upholstery looks great, and matches well with its black exterior. The seller has kept mods to a minimum, with just a set of aftermarket headlights on the list of changes. The car's original navigation system and head unit appear to be in place and the entire package is so well preserved it's amazing that the car hasn't drawn more interest so far.

Where this M5 will end up is anybody's guess. These cars are particularly difficult to find in any condition that could be called drivable, so this car's relatively low $15,000 current bid amount is surprising. Commentors on this auction are just as surprised as we are, and are asking where the love has gone for this M5. Of course, someone could swoop in at the last moment and start a bidding war, and with a full day left on the clock there's plenty of time for some action.
