Auto adjusting seats & iPads dont mix…
So I buy my wife a new iPad, and shes REALLY digging it. It goes everywhere with her so she can read, take notes, show pics, etc etc etc.
We end up going out in the Z4 running errands. Im about a foot taller than she is, so theres obviously a huge difference in the seat adjustment between the two of us. When she drives with the seat forward, stuff falls off the ledge behind the seat, so she generally sets items behind the seat. (Yes, you see where this is going). That fateful Friday, it happened to be her … CONTINUED
Here’s a rendering by Gerald Alvarez of the F12 6-series coupe rear view, based on a recent set of 6-series photos we posted. The render is of course gorgeous, so do you think it’s accurate? Share inside.

The F10 5-series recently debuted in Asia at a launch event gala held in Hong Kong. This particular F10 launch event appears to be the fanciest one yet, including musical and artistic performances and celebrity appearances. Even the F10 models on hand were the most decked out, with more wheel variety and some accessory parts.
Thanks for pinguhk for sharing the photos.
The next generation 1-series is expected to spawn off additional variants not present in the current 1-series lineup.

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – April 12, 2010… The BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo has won the 2010 Ward’s Auto Interior of the Year award for Design Versatility. This unique automobile was designed to expand on the original gran turismo concept, which was a luxurious and sporty car for two with room for luggage. The 5 Series Gran Turismo offers luxury seating for four (or five) with plenty of room for luggage. For those times when larger items will be along for the ride, it offers maximum flexibility including a two-piece tailgate.
“We’re very pleased to receive this award,” said Jim O’Donnell, President and CEO of BMW of North America. “With the 5 Series Gran Turismo, our engineers and designers set out to create a vehicle that combined … CONTINUED
We recently published a great review from E90post member Kamando of his 335d M-sport as a highway cruiser. There was however a more important question he had yet to answer: Can the 335d possibly be any fun to drive on the Nürburgring? His answer is a resounding “Hell Yes!” Review inside.
Spotted during testing on the Nurburgring today was the BMW M1 test mule! This test mule doesnt wear the more advanced prototype M1 body as we posted earlier, but is out testing powertrain, chassis, suspension, and handling properties. We also see for the first time what could be the carbon fiber roof.
