Epic European Delivery report journal by BIMMERPOST member B-1 Pilot:
Just four days ago, we returned from an Epic European Delivery trip of my 2014 M5. In 10 days of travelling we visited 8 countries, drove 1800 miles, hit 162MPH, drove three laps around the Nürburgring, took 1200 pictures, shot 15 hours of video, and consumed copious amounts of good German beer and wine.
For my trip, I blended previous experiences, new knowledge learned here, and about 6 months of research to come up with our … CONTINUED
We take a look at the just revealed F33 4 Series Convertible [Official Thread] against the E93 3 Series Convertible which it replaces.
We’ve shown you tons of BMW i8 images from its recent world debut at the Frankfurt auto show, but nothing provides a better true to life impression than seeing it in the real world environment. And since the production i8 [full details/specs] has not yet hit the roads, we give you the next best thing – photos of the i8 test cars spotted in the wild.
Seen here is the i8 in Ionic Silver, Protonic Blue and Sophisto Gray, as well as some … CONTINUED

So far so good for the i3. BMW has over 8,000 orders and it’s not even in showrooms yet:
Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW), the world’s biggest maker of luxury vehicles, is considering a production increase for the i3 electric car after early demand for the model exceeded the automaker’s expectations.
Customers have reserved more than 8,000 of the compact city car, which will cost $41,350 in the U.S., even before the battery-powered model hits European showrooms next month, Chief Financial Officer Friedrich Eichiner said late … CONTINUED
Months ago we uncovered much of the M235i by way of a set of very revealing photos (reposted below), but we now show you some more unique looks.
The first image shows the M235i bumper (on the left) compared to the standard 2 Series bumper (on the right). The 2 Series bumper is the same as the one spotted on the standard 2 Series prototype we showed you last week. Both designs look very sporty to us. The image also gives a great top-down look … CONTINUED
This week on Ignition, Carlos Lago tests the BMW M5… again! This time around it has something called the Competition Package, which adds a host of small adjustments and improvements in an effort to improve the car’s performance and the satisfaction it gives to its driver. Is more power and a recalibration of the suspension and steering enough to make this incredible sedan behave? We find out on the test track at Hyundai’s Proving Grounds.
The newest catalog of M Performance Parts for the M5 and M6 has officially been announced and released.

U.S. deliveries of the X5 will begin this weekend as they have now hit dealerships for deliveries and test drives.
PSI recently built a BMW E36 Chumpcar build. Here is the story, as told by one of their technicians, JT:
After hearing the name “Chumpcar” for a few years now, I was determined to figure out what exactly this was. At first, I believed it was a goofy racing series where people decorated some $500 car and and then raced it around various tracks hoping to last through an endurance event. There is another series that is similar called “The 24 hours of Lemons”. A few … CONTINUED
