The new BMW M3 and M4 duo might be a ball to drive, yet many enthusiasts haven’t taken all that well to their styling. Fortunately, there are many alternatives, and one comes in the form of this E92-generation M3.

This is a 2008 model that was first delivered to BMW Northwest in Tacoma, Washington and has passed through the hands of two owners before being acquired by the selling dealer. It has 11,000 miles on the clock and is being auctioned off on Bring A Trailer with service records, factory manuals, a window sticker, clean Carfax report, and a clean Arizona title.

The exterior is painted in Melbourne Red Metallic and sits on optional 19-inch ‘Style 220’ alloys wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires measuring 245/35 at the front and 265/35 at the rear. It also includes Electronic Damper Control as well as cross-drilled brake discs measuring 14.2 inches at the front and 13.8 inches at the rear.

The cabin is clad in black Novillo leather with Sycamore Anthracite accents on the dashboard and door panels. Among the key features are heated and power-adjustable front seats, the Enhanced Premium Sound system with HD radio, navigation, and a powered rear sunshade.

Slotted beneath the hood is a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated S65 V8 with 414 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. While the E92 M3 was available with a six-speed manual, this example has the Getrag seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and a Variable M Differential Lock.

Last October, the roof of a brand new Tesla Model Y flew off while it was being driven home from the dealership. Now, a Model 3 owner from California reports her passenger-side rear window popping with seemingly no explanation.

The window burst out just minutes after taking delivery, Inderpal Kaur told Inside EVs recently. She said that she was taking her sister for their first ride when the incident occurred. Fortunately, with no backseat passengers, neither was hit by the glass, but both were a little alarmed at what could have happened.

This is not the first report of windows shattering without warning. Reports started emerging early in 2020 of spontaneously breaking windows in Model 3s, and then there was the Model Y roof incident in October.

Video of the incidents captured the windows exploding outwards with seemingly no reason. Although the video is somewhat grainy, the fact that they burst outward, rather than inward, would seem to suggest that the inciting force wasn’t a pebble or other object striking the window from outside.

Indeed, Tesla has taken it upon itself to fix Kaur’s window. She reports that she opened a service ticket and received a response on January 4 from a person she said was “really helpful.”

“Although no one has actually taken a look at the car yet, they have hypothesized that it was due to a defect in the window along with the elevated cabin pressure of a new Tesla,” Kaur told Inside EVs.

The windows shattering are part of a larger perception issue that Tesla faces with regards to its build quality. Along with the shattering glass, the company has acknowledged that a design defect can cause Model 3s bumpers to fall off in the rain.

Shattering windows aren’t a uniquely Tesla problem, though. In 2017, reports emerged that a number of brands, including Volkswagen, Hyundai and Ford, had problems with defective sunroofs.

疫情下的手機、家用電腦晶片需求大增,並壓抑車用晶片產能,已導致日本車廠本田今(8)日宣布,將因晶片短缺而削減日本國內汽車產量,日媒最新報導,另一家日本車廠日產汽車,也受制於晶片短缺問題,而將在本月起削減其最暢銷的 Note 車型產量。

《日經新聞》今報導,繼本田之後,日本車廠日產汽車也將因晶片短缺,削減汽車產量。日產將在本月把預計生產 1.5 萬量的 Note 車型產量,削減 5000 輛,並可能會在 2 月繼續執行減產。

報導指出,出於智慧型手機、家用電腦和 5G 基地台的晶片需求增加,導致車用晶片的供應出現停滯,德國大眾汽車(Volkswagen)已在去年 12 月宣布,將削減在中國、北美和歐洲的產量。

另由於德國汽車零組件供應商德國大陸集團(Continental)和博世(Bosch)已承認,其產品交付將因晶片短缺而延遲,預計汽車「缺芯」問題,可能將對該行業造成廣泛影響。
