As many of us know already, the next generation 1-series (internal chassis codename F20) has been testing for some time now and has been in the wintery European north for cold climate testing. While its no secret that the next generation 1-series would likely get a 135i variant this is the first time that we are seeing a dual exhaust on the car on separate sides similar to other cars in the BMW range such as the 335i and 535i.

BMW tuner RDSport has always been good about coming up with conceptuals on new tuning packages on BMWs and putting them into play via photoshop. Many times, they get their work out before the car has even hit the streets in an official capacity, as in this case.

AC Schnitzer has debuted the ACS X6M at the AutomodEx Tuner Show in Dubai. Currently, they are only showcasing the cosmetic aero kit, but have plans for engine tuning as well. The centerpiece of the aero parts is the hood, which contains a see through window allowing a view of the engine (as seen on other cars such as Corvette ZR1, Ferraris, and Lamborghinis). Other parts include full bumper and fender replacements, sideskirts, 22″ wheels, rear diffuser, and rear wing.
This matte black Hamann styled E92 coupe was spotted in Geneva Switzerland. It seems to combine elements of a regular E92 coupe and an M3. There’s an M3 hood bulge and high performance rotors, but the rest of it appears to be a regular 3-series – mirrors, fenders, etc. Ok fine, it’s a regular 3-series, but we figured it’s cool enough a car to show and feature anyway
