A One Off Mini to Really Wow You!

The Most Tenacious Mini Engine Transplant You've Ever Seen! The British auto specialist company Powerflex, took four long years to pull off this conversion. Installing a BMW S65 (M3) engine into a little R56 Mini Cooper S is no small feat!  The car is ultimately destined for the track, as evidenced by the custom roll cage, dual clutch gearbox, and complete reworking of everything needed for this massive V8 engine to fit where a transverse 4 cylinder used to reside.  I know I'd love to take this revamped Mini out for a spin! Congrats, Powerflex, and all of your dedicated builders. 

Can't Beat That Price!

For Sale I was recently browsing around for interesting cars for sale, and stumbled across this rare gem of BMW history! The 507 is a lovely little roadster, but ended up only being produced from 1956-1959, with a total production number of 252 cars. Back then, they could be had for between $9000-$10500 due to the expense of production. Thich sounds like very little today, but in today's dollars, that's the equivalent to about $90,000!! Now in 2020, this rare gem could be yours for a mere 3.1 million dollars! One well known owner of not one, but two, 507s was the King of Rock & Roll himself, Elvis Presley. It is said that he gave the second one to actress Ursula Andress, who is well-known as the first Bond girl from the movie Dr. No. This link from BMW.com details the life of Elvis' red 507, which has now been fully restored in Munich.  ... read more

An Oldie But A Goodie

While discussing the shop’s new intern (who has been described as part land piranha and part alligator,) this old BMW Z4 advert came to mind. Based on an SNL skit from long ago, this ad campaign from BMW has always been one of my favorites! I hope you all enjoy

Special Contest!

Special Contest!

It is time to take a minute from the car talk, and discuss one of the favorite employees here at the shop! If you've been in, you of course know that I mean Dwayne! He's now five years old, and has been working with me daily since he was four months old. In all the time he has been here with us, making clients smile, the pervasive question has been, "What is he?!" The answer to that question will soon be at hand. In order to make things interesting, we are holding a little pool so people can try their hand at a guess! Each entry is $5, with the change to pick up to 5 breeds and the associated percentages. Winner will receive 50% of the pot, with the other 50% donated to the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley. If you're interested in entering, please swing by the shop to place your votes!

Friday Road Construction

Just a heads up to our clients that are scheduled to visit us today; access from Bates Ave. is closed due to construction, so please come around to Galapago St. instead

Neighborhood Changes

Wow, if you've been in lately, you've seen some interesting changes coming to our little neighborhood! Two separate building projects are finally taking place on the large lot across the street, former home of the General Iron Works factory. The first project, almost completed, is a small apartment complex, with two buildings. The second, which is in the "moving around dirt" phase, will contain single family homes, possibly mixed with multi-unit dwellings. We hope that the new construction will bring even more life into this already unique neighborhood, without affecting our beloved wildlife too much. The history of General Iron Works spans back to the 1920s, when five competing machining and iron companies merged into one business. The factory played an important role during World War II, producing machine tools, pumps, marine boiler & turret parts, and artillery shells, among other items. After the buildings were torn down in 2002, several temporary projects took over for short t ... read more

Spring!!!!!

Spring!!!!!

Well, Colorado, it looks like it might be spring again! If you've lived here for any length of time, you know that springtime weather can change in the blink of an eye. You wonder if you should finally take off your snow tires, and know that when you do, we'll get just one more snowstorm. I'm officially going to take a stand a declare that IT IS SPRING NOW, no matter what the skies decide to throw our way. When it comes to your BMW or Mini, spring means it is time for several things. First and foremost, a thorough cleaning inside and out to get rid of the gravel, mud, mag chloride, dirt, dust, and road grime. Getting the undercarriage washed helps to prevent your vehicle's hardware from corroding from the build up of nastiness that is picked up when driving in the snow and ice. Secondly, spring means it is time to check your maintenance records and have your vehicle checked out here at Absolute Moto ... read more

Happy Birthday, BMW!

Happy Birthday, BMW!

Vision Next 100 Last week, BMW celebrated its 100th birthday! We were treated to a release of a new concept car, the Vision Next 100, with a combo of autonomous and manual driving features. As with most concept cars, the idea seems too crazy to be believed! The body is shape-shifting carbon fiber, and the steering wheel folds up when it is in autonomous driving mode. Next, I fully expect the flying cars we were promised in Back to the Future II and The Jetsons! Are you listening, designers? I also stumbled across this fun article on thrillist.com, which has a list of fun BMW facts to read through. Personally, numbers 8, 13, and 18 are my favorite tidbits! Thank you for 100 great years, BMW! I know everyone is looking forward to s ... read more
