Autobild get closer with new BMW X1 rendering.
In some markets, including the North American market. The F48 X1 is going to be xDrive only.
This rendering is very close indeed. The front is very similar, with a dynamic sweep of the headlights. A feature on the next generation 7er, 5er and new X7.
And although it is shown as the M Sport in this render. The front fascia aligns with the new X family signature but looks more sporty to appeal to younger customers. The rear incorporates typical BMW L-shaped units that wrap around the exterior X3-like.
The shape and character sculpture on the render conforms to what is hidden underneath camouflage and vacuumed plastic paneling on the current prototype.

If a recent report from German Auto Motor und Sport is to be believed, BMW will showcase another large luxury concept car at the upcoming Beijing Car Show starting April 20th.
After last year’s Gran Lusso concept which previewed a possible large coupe like the possible revival of the 8-series, AMS has allegedly learned that BMW is about to unveil a 9-series concept car shortly. This concept car is also said to preview a new generation of BMW’s interior design to debut in the all-new 2016 BMW 7-series (internally dubbed G11).
As the concept car debut in China suggests, one of the possibly largest markets for a car like the 9-series (and the 8-series) would be China. Technically, these cars would be based on the new … CONTINUED
We got a hold of the operating manual of the F80 M3 and found some interesting tidbits we would like to share.
As with any other current or late M model, break-in period is 2,000 km or 1,200 miles. During that time, maximum engine speed should not exceed 5,500 RPM, maximum speed is 170 kph (105 mph).
Between 2,000 and 5,000 km (1240 and 3100 miles), engine RPM can be slowly increased but speed should not exceed 220 kph (137 mph) for a longer period of time.
Unlike the E9x M3, BMW recommends 0W-30 oil. The times of mandatory 10W-60 oil apparently seem to be over.

The good ole engine warmup and shift lights in the tachometer are back … CONTINUED

Catch our coverage from the 2014 Techno Classica Essen.
There is a reason why I LOVE attending the Techno Classic in Essen… it’s all the cool classic cars! Yup, the quality of the cars on display here and that fact that all the major German car makers are here – at the factory level, makes this show a MUST SEE event each year. It’s the worlds largest classic car show(so says Siha, the organizers) held in Europe. I believe it. I always have such a great time here.
