I think the magazine is made in the UK and is called:

"BMW Car".

Its a monthly magazine.The issue was back around 1996-97 and I think the magazine had the idea of using the smallest BMW with the biggest engine.The story and photos are interesting.It looks stock on the inside and the outside.

Can anyone remember the article and the name of the magazine?

If you do have the photos please share them here.

I just contacted the magazine via their website and hopefully I will get a reply and let you all know what issue it was in.

If anyone finds the article in the mean time please let everyone know.Thanks.

No if you look at the other pics you will see its not photoshop. Whoever did it did an amazing job. All the bracketry and everything looks top notch.

P.S does the picture show up in post or do you have to click the weblink to view it?

no the picture doesnt show...but the link works....

however the link is only to one picture....where are the others...

BTW...that is interesting I'd like to see how that car drives....I'm assuming the fuel lines and tank and the cooling system has to be modified as well just so that engine could perform normaly!

it's like BMW Frankenstien!!!
