BMW releases a new commercial focusing on the mantra for some of the latest current M models (F10 M5, 1M Coupe) and certainly for future models – high performance with efficient dynamics. Being able to have one’s cake and eat it too.
Their official message: Efficient dynamics, high performance, fuel efficiency; you can have it all when you drive a BMW M. Some people say it’s having your cake and eating it too. We say, it’s The Ultimate Driving Machine
The 24 Hours Nurburgring race was run last week and we bring you our photo coverage (by moderator Dackelone) from the event, showing the various sights and experiences to be had at the weekend long event, which is also a party and celebration in addition to the actual race.
Chris Harris dusts off his 1986 E28 M5, the first M5 ever built (and by hand too), which he hasn’t driven for years. It still feels nuts to him today, so what the hell was it like for him in 1986? See inside.
Check out some looks from the BMW M Driving Experience at the Monza Circuit in Italy, featuring the latest and greatest from BMW M GmbH – the F10 M5, F12 M6, M3, X5M and X6M.
Along with the M3 M Performance Edition models, BMW has also released this video teaser for the new limited BMW M5 M Performance Edition models for the UK. The centerpiece of each M5 M Performance Edition model is the Frozen (matte) paint, which will include Frozen Blue, Frozen Red, and Frozen White. Only ten units of each color will be produced, for a total of just 30 cars.
BMW recently launched the M Performance Parts catalog for the F20 1 series, F30 3 series, and F10 5 series, but has yet to announce its full M Performance catalog for M cars. From the teaser, you can see M Performance trunk spoiler, black kidney grilles and side gills trim, but we hope the M Performance Parts will also … CONTINUED
An M5POST member shares with us his experience from BMW’s M Specialist Training at the BMW Performance Center in Spartanburg, SC. This is the program where BMW Client Advisors receive their certification as M Certified Sales Consultants. The biggest surprise of the experience came when the class got the first hotlap rides in the just delivered F10 M5. Here’s his account:
This past Monday and Tuesday, I went down to the Performance Center for the first time. I have been working for BMW for 9 years and I can certainly say it was worth the wait.
As of Tuesday, I am officially a BMW M Certified Sales Consultant!
I know Ryan and Jimmy (Golffer) had their trip in January. I was suppose to attend the same … CONTINUED
Here are some great photos from last weekend’s 2012 Bimmers N Boardwalk event and meet. The event saw over 70 BMWs in attendance which were lined up and sorted by color, allowing for some great photos.
Check out the photos and an event video inside.
Have a look at a Frozen Silver F10 M5 fitted with BMW M Performance Parts, in black and carbon fiber. The parts provide a nice contrast against the beautiful matte silver exterior and gives the M5 an even sportier character by de-chroming.
The carbon fiber trunk spoiler (which the owner replaced the factory spoiler lip with), the sideskirts (which replaces the flared factory M5 sideskirts) and kidney grilles are all from the new M Performance Parts lineup. This M5 has also been fitted with gloss black gill trim and the exhaust tips have been blacked out.
One of the factors guaranteeing the success of the popular racing series is the longstanding cooperation between BMW M GmbH and MotoGP™ organiser Dorna. BMW M has further strengthened this close-knit partnership, appointing the new Dorna MotoGP™ safety consultant Loris Capirossi as the new BMW M MotoGP™ expert.
The former top-level motorcycle racer from Italy looks back over extensive experience and boasts a vast knowledge of MotoGP™.
