Everything you ever wanted to know about the BMW N55 twinpower turbo inline 6 cylinder engine is contained in this technical product information manual, including servicing information.
A few months ago, I flew home to the East Coast (Washington, DC) to visit my family. While there, a good friend of mine suggested I go visit the Simeone Auto Museum up in Philadelphia, PA. I had never heard of the place. But, I am always up for a good auto museum. So… off we went to Philly. I thought if nothing else… we would get in some tasty cheese steaks.
The Museum is relatively new. I think it opened back in 2010-ish and in 2011 it was declared one of the best automotive museums in the USA! What I really liked about the museum was EVERY car ran. Everything. The staff starts up the cars every week… and they even encourage people to come … CONTINUED
The 2014 BMW X5 will feature an LED Lighting Package. Here are some previews of the various lighting combinations.
An interactive 3D modeler of the M235i Coupe is now available at Humster3D. This digitally modeled version is based off the revealing spy photos of the M235i we posted last month.
Generally speaking, it does a decent job at previewing the M235i, although it does have to make some predictions as to the rear view and tail lights, which remain partially covered in the spy photos. Its surfacing is also too flat in some areas, as the actual M235i’s hood and front fascia have more shape and curves.

The M235i and 228i coupe will be the first 2 Series models available in the US. Both models will begin production in November 2013, as a 2014 model … CONTINUED
The BMW Brand store Paris, a BMW Z4, a man and a woman.

This is how a supercharged (VF supercharged VF620) M3 sounds and feels on the track. Just vicious!

A Lime Rock Park Edition E92 M3 Coupe and some friends hit the Cabot Trail on a recent weekend.
By M3POST member leemik:
A few of my car buddies decided to go on road trip to Nova Scotia this weekend and drive the Cabot Trail. We live in New England so the trip for me (I live south of Boston) to the trail and back would total about 2,100 miles. I drove my brand new Lime Rock M3 (just past 1st oil service) and it performed perfectly during the whole trip. All the cars on the run did as well. No major breakdowns and no problems what-so-ever from anyone. Since it was so many miles we had to plan several predetermined tier 1 gas station fill … CONTINUED
