Rumors abound yesterday about the BMW Ring-Taxi possibly not returning in 2011. However, reports of its death has been greatly exaggerated. The Ring-Taxi is not going away, but changing forms. We were able to reach out and receive official word from BMW M on the matter. The official situation is:

“The BMW Ring-Taxi will continue in 2011 and use the BMW M3 this year. It will be driven by the instructors from the BMW Driving Experience program – much like it used to be in past years.”

In other words, the only thing that changes is that the E60 M5 has been replaced by the E90/E92 M3, and the chances of Sabine Schmitz driving the Ring-Taxi are none this year, compared to slim in past years.

BMW today announced a new M Performance exhaust system specifically designed as an accessory for the BMW M3 Coupe, Sedan and Convertible. With the racetrack and the street in mind, this new exhaust system is crafted from an extremely heat-resistant and lightweight chrome-nickel alloy called Inconel®. This flow optimized exhaust system reduces exhaust backpressure and allows the M3’s 414 horsepower V8 engine to produce an even more powerful sound.

Inconel’s unique qualities allowed engineers to reduce the thickness of the tubing from 1.5mm to 0.8mm. This resulted in a weight reduction of approximately 40%, or about 20 lbs. when compared to the stock exhaust system. Inconel has also proven to be very corrosion resistant and has been used at the highest level of Motorsports.
