Photos from the 2013 Beverly Hills Concours d’Elegance held on June 16, 2013.
We’ve spotted the BMW M235i Coupe again and although it remains in the previous stage of camouflage (you’ve seen it revealed in the photos below anyway), this is our first ever look at the 2 Series Coupe versus its older brother to be, the 4 Series Coupe.
Next to the 435i, the M235i appears to be a bit taller. But, it’s clearly narrower and cuts a squatter figure than the sleeker and more stretched 435i coupe. Remember too, that the 2 Series prototype still wears some … CONTINUED

With the reveal of the 4 Series Coupe, some digital artists have taken to photoshop … CONTINUED

Dyno shootout by Alekshop:
From the time Dinan and RD Sport each introduced their 4.6L stroker motors, it’s always been our dream to have a dyno shootout to see how they would match up against each other. Both companies make 4.6 liter stroker motors, but each took a slightly different approach in their design. Dinan chose to design a shorter stroke and bigger bore, while RD Sport chose to design a longer stroke and slightly smaller bore. The shorter stroke approach gives the Dinan stroker a … CONTINUED
Our M5POST members recently discovered a string of videos by a Pkill617 on Youtube which featured him cold revving brand new BMWs coming through the Boston Autoport, where he was an employee until this story came to light.
He had a special penchant for M models and although he never drove or hooned the cars (at least not on video), he did like to rev them when completely cold.
He has since been let go from his job at the Boston Autoport for these actions.
You’ve seen our comparisons pitting the all new 2014 BMW 4 Series Coupe (F32) against the E92 3 Series, Mercedes C Class, and Audi A5/S5.
Now see it versus its close brother – the F30 3 Series Sedan.
You can now visualize and preview your own 4 Series Coupe with the BMW online configurator/visualizer.
It’s not the market specific build-your-own configurator that will include pricing and market-specific packages/options, but it’s still fun to play with the different lines, colors, interiors, and wheels options.
Road and Track shares their top 7 picks for the best 3 Series / M3 ever made.
Supersprint gives us a look into their F10 M5 research and development process and the results of that process.
The release photos of the 4 Series Coupe M Sport left much to be desired, coming in only one color (Estoril Blue) and in a limited number of angles.
But, we’ve got some more looks for you – in multiple angles and in an array of production colors (and two fantasy colors). They are pictured here with the optional 19″ M Sport wheels (Style 442M).
The 4 Series M Sport package is equipped with:
M Sport suspension standard (RWD models only)
You’ve seen the comparisons between the BMW 4 Series Coupe and the E92 3 Series and Mercedes C Class, not have a look a BMW’s newest coupe versus the Audi A5 and S5, the 4 Series’ closest and strongest competitor.
As you can see in the tables inside, the specs between BMW’s and Audi’s midsize coupes are very similar in performance (for the 435i and S5) and each have nearly identical physical measurements, except weight and weight distribution.
Many BIMMERPOST members were in attendance at the BMW North America Open House event this past Friday in Woodcliff Lake, NJ. While great times were had by all from the various models and exhibits arranged for their visit, the highlight (and surprise) of the event was the reveal of the 4 Series Coupe to the group. This represented the first ‘public’ reveal of the 4 Series Coupe as Friday coincided with the online reveal of the 4 Series Coupe.
See below for some photos of … CONTINUED
The BMW Group has extended its run of success in the International Engine of the Year Awards by recording two more class wins with the N20 and N13/N18 motors [read full details].
Watch below the process of a BMW engine being born and eventually married to a chassis. They sure do grow up fast.
We’ve put together a comparison versus the physical specs, powerplants and performance of the new 4 Series Coupe and the Mercedes C Class Coupe, as well as the comparison photos.
The 4 Series has the C Class Coupe beat in the performance department, hands down. As for styling, well that’s subjective, but the comparison photos inside should help you form your own opinion.
