Check out some photos from the Revscene Annual Spring Meet 2012, taking place in Vancouver, BC, this past weekend. 1/3 of the cars in attendance wore the BMW roundel.
Site member and renowned driver Advevo shows how much driving skill equalizes the power and performance difference between cars. The 1M is no slouch but on paper it gives up much to the lightweight M3 GTS, but Advevo manages to keep it a very close race on this Nurbrugring lap.
This lap by Advevo in his 1M was completed in just 7.45, an impressive task in and of itself.
Our Canadian members members hailing from the GTA (greater Toronto Area) are some of the biggest BMW enthusiasts around and it showed this past weekend when the GTA BMW M enthusiasts gathered for a hugely successful meet. Over 50 M cars showed up for the event. Most were current generation M3s but there were also older M3s, as well as Z4 Ms. Check out photos and videos from the event inside!
BMW Team RLL was victorious at this weekend’s exciting 12 Hours of Sebring race in Florida, at which BMW hosted a BMW Corral for local enthusiasts. Many of our site members were in attendance for the race and parked in the corral. On hand was the F10 M5 for everyone to ogle and check out.
BMW Team RLL had an excellent start to the 2012 American Le Mans Series season. At the 60th running of the 12 Hours of Sebring (US) the no. 56 BMW M3 GT claimed overall victory in the GT class after 307 laps of the “Sebring International Raceway” and a dramatic final stage of the race.

We’ve posted plenty of spy photos and videos of the next generation M3 sedan (F80) but this is the first high speed chase video we’ve seen, and the chase car is no slouch. Watch as a tuned BMW 1M coupe (with 420hp) pushes a F80 M3 prototype to 240+km/h on the Autobahn.
The F80 M3 is due to debut in the second half of 2013, likely for market release in Europe at the end of 2013 and in the US early 2014.
Remember the M5-M3-S1000 burnout videos posted recently? BMW Mexico has released a video from the same event, which shows some on track action between the M3, S1000RR superbike, and F10 M5 piloted by BMW DTM driver Augusto Farfus.
We had the opportunity to sit down with the gracious Dr. Friedrich Nitschke, current BMW M GmbH President, at the 2012 Geneva Motorshow last week. We were primarily interested in discussing future M models and developments and here’s what we are able to report.

The M Performance Parts party continues. Just minutes after our Live Gallery of the F20 125i equipped with M Performance Parts, BMW has published the full M Performance parts catalog to coincide with its official release/announcement at the 2012 Geneva Motorshow.
M Performance Parts carry the M name because they have been developed together with M engineers for both performance and aesthetics enhancement. This collaboration with M engineers began just last year. This is what sets M Performance Parts apart from what used to be called simply … CONTINUED
