The recent F80 M3 spy video (reposted below) and order guide revealed and confirmed the Yas Marina Blue Metallic color for the upcoming 2014 M3 and M4. While the video gave us a general sense of how the color looks, its grainy quality doesn’t showcase the color adequately. So, we’ll show you more…
Here is a Yas Marina Blue F30 320d. The color will be available for the standard 3 Series as a BMW Individual color. No word yet on what market will receive it or when it will become available.
For a look at the metallic properties of the color, iND Distribution has shared with these great photos of Yas Marina Blue Metallic paint swatches.

Autobild is reporting that the next generation 2017 BMW 5 Series will add a 3 cylinder turbodiesel model in certain markets.
The 3 cylinder turbodiesel 5 Series is rumored to output 150 HP (110 kW) and sip diesel at just 3.9 liters / 100 km (60 MPG US / 72 MPG UK). The next gen 5 Series will ride on a new platform which it will share with the next gen 6 Series and 7 Series.
The report goes on to predict that the next M5 model will feature power in excess of 600 HP and will be offered with optional all-wheel-drive (as previously reported).
The next gen 5 Series is expected to hit the market in mid 2016.

The first official 2 Series video teaser posted nearly two weeks ago previewed not only the M235i, but also a cinematic short-film featuring the car.
The complete short-film has now been posted. It’s essentially a gratuitous car chase scene, but what better way is there to get more looks at the M235i in action? Click inside for a look (may take a few seconds for video to appear).
The story started with a Facebook post from Debra to BMW. And it ended with a surprisingly delivery of her new BMW 4 Series. What happened?
When Debra saw the BMW 4 Series Launchfilm, she decided to buy a BMW 4 Series Coupe instead of a Mercedes Benz and posted that on Facebook. Guess what: BMW somehow liked that and decided to take her by surprise at her delivery at the BMW Welt in Munich…
Here is a preview peek at the Austin Yellow color for the upcoming F80 M3 and F82 M4.
As you can see, it’s basically the production version of the M4 Concept’s Aurum Dust color.
