I attended my first show in a very long time recently, the Santa Pod BMW show, and I loved it. I’d honestly forgotten how fun shows are, and I genuinely missed the atmosphere. After our unexpected year-long break from shows thanks to Covid in 2020, it feels so good to be able to get back out there and enjoy the scene. I missed the cars, the people, and it’s so nice to enjoy that shared passion. Summer’s here, shows are back, and I hope you’re all feeling good. One thing that’s certain to get you feeling good is the August/September issue of PBMW, which you are holding in your hands right now because we’ve got a load of amazing feature cars that are going to put a smile on your face.…

the non-conformist

Regular readers might recognise Ehsan Hazrati’s (@ehs_garage) name. We featured his red, rotary-powered E30 build in our April/May issue, having previously featured it back in 2016, and if you do, then you’ll probably be able to make an educated guess about what’s powering this blue E30 because, you see, Ehsan loves rotaries. Yup, the weird little compact spinning Mazda engines are something that Ehsan is deeply passionate about and, looking at his bright red 542whp turbo build, it’s easy to see the appeal of the small, lightweight engine in the small, lightweight E30. But this blue build isn’t powered by a turbo rotary, it’s powered by an NA rotary, and that is less easy to understand. Ehsan has some explaining to do… “As all my E30s were modified or in the…

heavyweight champion

The F90 M5 is not a car we’ve seen a whole lot of here in PBMW, and that’s not too surprising. It’s a seriously expensive car at over £100k new, and used ones aren’t exactly accessible to most of us, and if you then want to mod it, you’re going to have some pretty deep pockets. Or course, it goes without saying that if you could, then you absolutely would; Stan Petreikis did, and he’s built himself an absolute monster. While Stan’s motoring passion may not have always been with BM, he has always been a proper petrolhead. Growing up in Lithuania, indulging his passion for cars was something of a challenge, to say the least, and knowing that it’s even more understandable why he’s built himself such a beast of…
