A speculative render of a still speculative model – the BMW M2 Convertible. According to BMW insider Scott26:
Such a concept remains a possibility, especially with the M2 becoming a series production car. The rear lights are similiar but in the actual car they wrap around in the opposite direction as proved by a recent bodyshell spy photograph. Aerodynamics are still too dramatic.
Top Gear HK (Hong Kong) pits the 320hp M135i versus the 340hp 1M Coupe in a drag race. The M135i puts in an impressive performance over the 150 meter race.
Per M5POST member hsiaochinsan:
Awesome meet today in a sunny afternoon in Bay Area (Palo Alto Meet). It was a fun meet to meet and get to know other local F10 M5 owners. We had a great time. First time seeing krispykreme’s Amazonite Silver M5. The color was astonishing. Great to re-unit with cnicholson after our ED meet. Barry’s car looks sharp with his H&R and spacer set up. Sanguru and Barry’s Eisenmann set-up was amazing. We also got to see wdimagineer’s AW with his M6 steering wheel, Akrapovic, HRE P40C, and other OEM euro goodies.

Here is a great in depth review of the 2-Day BMW M School by a 6 Series Owner. By southern6er22:
Last Friday and Saturday I attended the 2-day M School at the BMW Performance Center (PC) with my father and brother. It was an exhilarating weekend of insane horsepower, smoking tires, and exceptional instructors. While the cars were astonishing, the instructors did things with cars I didn’t know were possible. The speed at which they took corners, their ability to drift these hefty cars laden with 800+ pounds of passengers, and the way they handled the highly technical PC track was inspiring. These guys were great teachers, and I have so much respect for what these guys can do.
As for the cars, the M School utilizes … CONTINUED
Wonder how the 3 series coupe has evolved now to the F32 4 Series Coupe? Here’s a visual comparison.

Project and writeup by PSI.
Project Fire: Version Two. In the heart of every M3 enthusiast is the desire to own a “special” M3, one that illustrates their love for everything BMW but also with their own unique flair and individualization. On Project Fire: Version Two, we made the car into a close GTS replica, with an edge.
Once we acquired the OEM M3 GTS wing, we knew the direction of the project’s new version. The AE Performance Bar in Fire Orange and RECARO SPG XLs were next, mounted using the OEM sliders and mounting positions. The Shift knob was exchanged for the Macht Schnell Nylon edition with an Active Autowerke SSK as well.
Next, an OEM European bumper and the IND Sport Evo lip were added … CONTINUED
Here’s a pictorial of our visit to the Fahrzeugmuseum Marxzell, one man’s really eclectic and kinda weird car collection.
From moderator Dackelone (David):
What can I say about this museum? Well… I wouldn’t really call it a museum, its more of one mans car collection of really weird stuff. As soon as you walk into the old place… the musky smell of mold and dampness and old cars greets you. This guy had a ton of “stuff”! A lot of it I must say I found really cool. I knew I was in for a treat when I parked my car around the corner at the Museum’s car park and I saw he had some Turkeys and Geese walking around the old cars and … CONTINUED
