Before this morning’s BMW Press Conference came and went, we had already accepted the sad fact that no BMW M1 concept would be making a surprise appearance. So why no M1 appearance? If a certain insider is to be believed, it’s because a higher-up at BMW recently drove and was disappointed by the M1 prototype, and has requested changes which the M1 concept is currently undergoing. Another reason is supposedly that BMW wishes to concentrate its marketing on products coming to market sooner than the M1 … CONTINUED
The world wide premiere of the F10 5-series ActiveHybrid concept is not until the official BMW Press Conference tomorrow, but we bring you photos today of BMW’s newest hybrid concept. As you can see by the scene, the 5-series hybrid is a main part of a presentation that will be held by Dr. Reithofer, which will stress BMW’s EfficientDynamics concept.

We’re live at the Geneva Motor Show where BMW is displaying for the first time the LCI (facelifted) E92 coupe with M-sport package. BMW recently announced that the regular (non 335is) E92 coupes and E93 convertibles can now be ordered with the optional M-Sport package. Also making its debut here in Geneva is the LCI E93 convertible.

The new 5-series touring (F11) model will make its world debut at the 2010 Auto Mobil International (AMI) being held on April 10, 2010 in Leipzig, Germany. Germany is traditionally the biggest market for the 5-series wagon so it’s natural that the F11 make its debut in Leipzig. The F11 touring is not expected to be available in the U.S. market however.

Not only will BMW not make an M7, but they even stopped making the incredibly-close-to-an-M Alpina B7 a few years ago. That car could hold its head high against competitors like the Mercedes-Benz S63 … CONTINUED
So far, ActiveHybrid cars have been interesting reads, but very much out of reach for the average BMW enthusiast. The system has exclusively been fit to the 7 series and X6, two of the most expensive cars in the BMW lineup. Whats worse, the mere addition of Active Hybrid to those cars has shot the price tag up even higher.
Now for the good news, the system is working its way down the lineup, and will arrive under the hood of … CONTINUED
