The story of the joy ridden 1M coupe from Pacific BMW continues. Unfortunately for one of our 1ADDICTS members, the 1M coupe which was joy ridden by BMW techs during its pre-delivery inspection, turned out to be his. He has now brought in his lawyers to seek compensation for the technicians’ gaffe and the resolution remains to be seen. Stay tuned as the owner provides updates inside.
We’re happy to bring exciting news on the next generation M3. The next generation M3 sedan / M4 coupe will be designated the “F80 M3″. Along with this news comes word that the F80 M3 will indeed return in sedan form (already spied in testing)! The BMW F80 M3 Sedan will likely have its market launch in summer 2013, uncharacteristically before the F82 M4 coupe.
As things look to us, the M3 sedan will be the only model called M3. M3 coupe and convertible versions (F82 M3 and F83 M3) will likely be branded as M4. This might have played a role in BMW’s decision for another iteration of the M3 sedan. Previous rumors of BMW not bringing another M3 sedan turned out to be … CONTINUED

BMW has released the first official photos of the F20 1 series Performance Accessories Study. It’s a showcase vehicle used to introduce the new line of BMW Accessories for the 2012 F20 1 series.

We’ve posted the best sound/video clip and photos yet of the F10 M5 safety car, showing off its M5 Akrapovic exhaust standing still and at launch. Videos and photos are courtesy of 5POST member Bmill, who was one of the lucky VIP in attendance at the BMW M Experience at the Indy MotoGP this past weekend.
We bring you a preview of the BMW F30 3 series’ production front end styling via our set of renders. These were constructed by analyzing the 100% uncovered F30 spy pics recently posted, together with input from Scott26, who has seen the production F30 design. It was confirmed that these images are representative of the real life F30 front end design.
The F30’s front styling will represent very unique elements never before seen on a production BMW. The headlight-grille area features deep set headlights which dip inward to expose the sides of the kidney grilles. We’ve been getting hints of this new styling element with recent BMW concepts (see below). This innovative design not only differentiates the F30’s front end look from the rest of the BMW … CONTINUED
