I cant speak French, but despite the language barrier, this video review does its job well and reaches across all languages IMO. The sounds and action footage does the job very well
Just a reminder, the upcoming 535i will be equiped with the new N55 single turbo twin scroll engine producing 300hp that has made its first appearance in the 535i Gran Turismo and will be seen across nearly the entire BMW lineup.

Well, there is no end to the photoshops of the upcoming M5 that have been bubbling to the surface. The general notion is that the cars line will follow the E90/E92 M3 front bumper however it will be significantly more angular (think X5/X6 M) and obviously wider to fill out the larger 5-Series based body
We’ve updated with another photo and some larger and higher resolution photos of the M3 Frozen Black. What we know so far is that BMW plans to keep this finish very exclusive by offering only 27 units of this car worldwide. More details to come…

The F20 1-series 5-door hatchback continues its winter cold weather testing in Arjeplog, a town in Northern Sweden. The new 5-door hatch 1-series is expected debut sometime next year.
With the LCI X5 photos released this weekend it was only a matter of days, or hours until the first photos of the M-Sport package were to arrive.

We are hoping some larger resolution pictures come out so we can further dissect the car, but as of now it just seems like the bumpers are fully painted and the stylistic details of the LCI are further massaged.

C&D guesses at what the M3 will be like in 10 years. They believe that by 2020 BMW has gone direct injection and turbo crazy and that the 2020 M3 will feature a tuned up version of the turbocharged six cylinder engine used in other BMW models.

Here are the first photos of the new Frozen Black edition color to be offered for the M3. This color will join Frozen Gray and Frozen Sepang as BMW’s factory flat/matte color edition options.
