YOUR BMW COULD STAR IN A COMMERCIAL.
We’re making a new BMW commercial and your car could be the star.
All you have to do is share your photos of your 3 Series with us on Twitter or Facebook and we might just pick your photo.
We need photos of 3 Series from every year between 1992 to 2012 [E36 to F30]. Front shots, side shots, shots of you and your car; any shot of your 3 in all its glory. Just so long as the car is not cropped or cut off. The photos could have been taken years back, or recently.
Photos that give a sense of the year through signs of the times, and show just how much things have changed over the last 22 … CONTINUED
Release via 3D Design:
In recent months the F30 chassis has captured enthusiast’s imaginations, and has renewed our love for the BMW brand. The car’s excellent reception in the BMW community has resulted in numerous tuner specimens and a uncharacteristically aggressive kit from the BMW Performance division. 3D Design has worked diligently to create an aero package worthy of the M-sport kit.
The 3D Design M-sport sport kit consists of a urethane front lip, an optional carbon fiber front lip (in development), and a carbon fiber rear diffuser. Along with the release of their M-sport line 3D Design also completed a F31 hatch spoiler and a fully integrated gauge pod for all F30 models.
The urethane M-sport front lip brings some of the design elements of … CONTINUED

BMW TwinPowerTurbo technology again takes two of Ward’s 2013 10 Best Engines Awards. The 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder (N20) and 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline-6 (N55) are both repeat winners.
“Nearly every BMW now sold in the US features TwinPower Turbo technology,” said Ludwig Willisch – President and CEO of BMW of North America, LLC. “In such a competitive market, to take two spots highlights the benefits of the BMW EfficientDynamics philosophy.

With the 4 Series Coupe Concept being revealed to overwhelmingly positive reactions, the question on many a fan’s mind is what the production version may be priced at when it hits the market in late summer of 2013. With its 4 Series badging, the coupe has now been slotted above the 3 Series in the lineup and the presumption is that the 4 Series price premium above the 3 Series will increase more than ever (the coupe has always been priced higher than the sedan).
BMW insider SCOTT26 has chimed in with this bit of early speculation:
“Now the advent of the 4er is here and aims to bring a more upmarket perspective to the 3er line. The 4er (in Germany ) is projected at just … CONTINUED
It’s been known for a while that BMW’s intention with the F32 4 Series coupe was to distinguish it from the F30 3 Series sedan more than a 3-Series-based-coupe-model has been with previous 3 Series generations. With the reveal of the 4 Series Coupe Concept, there’s little doubt that this has been accomplished.
In addition to the unique styling elements you can see on the F32 concept, the F32 is longer, wider and lower than the F30, giving it a squat aggressive look. We’ve put together a visual look at how the F32 looks compared to the F30, along with some physical stats.
Look for the 4 Series Coupe Concept to debut in January at the 2013 Detroit auto show and production to begin in July 2013, … CONTINUED
