Track Day, Bro!

By | 2017-05-09T16:00:00+00:00 May 9th, 2017|Driving Experience, Uncategorized|0 Comments

Morrie’s Automotive Group hosted its first track day of the year last Friday at Brainerd International Raceway and although the weather in early May can always be a little unpredictable, we got lucky with blue skies and perfect 70-degree temps all day. It was under those perfect conditions that our friends and customers had a chance to get out on track in their cars (as well as a couple of Aston Martins borrowed from Morrie’s Luxury Auto). With the help of the trained drivers from the BIR Performance Driving School, it’s safe to say that everyone not only had a blast, but learned a lot and will hopefully be able to transfer those skills to driving safely on the street as well. If you weren’t able to make it to the track with us this time, we’ll be headed back up to BIR on Friday, September 29th. We hope to see you there! […]

Lap Around the Web – October 25th

It’s about that time of year where we all start to prep our cars for winter. For those of us fortunate to have a fun car for the summer, that means hibernation, made even worse by the knowledge that we’re about to spend the next four to six months driving our utilitarian winter beaters from Point A to Point B. In Sweden however, there’s now a race series that proves you can have fun in your beater too! Simply called “Folk Racing”, this budget-focused rally-cross series is perfect for all those old Volvos, Saabs, and other unloved cheap cars since after each race, a competitor can buy your car for the equivalent of about $750. Maybe we need something like this in Minnesota! […]

Getting a BMW M3 ready for the Morrie’s Luxury Auto Track Day

By | 2016-04-20T14:51:28+00:00 April 20th, 2016|Projects|0 Comments

  I have a friend who recently sold his Porsche 911 Turbo and picked a 1998 BMW M3 as a temporary car while he searches for the right car to replace the 911 turbo. He ended up liking the M3 so much he decided to buy another one that was in better condition and had lower miles. After searching he found a clean 1997 M3 in Milwaukee and decided to have a pre purchase inspection done. There were a couple of issues that were found while the list wasn’t too long some items needed to be dealt with before the drive back home to Minneapolis. The other issues found during the PPI were common BMW maintenance items and overlapped with some upgrades that were planned before he had even picked the car up. […]
