I saw it [4 Series Gran Coupe] today in the ‘closed room’ @ the car show in brussels. It’s sleeker than the 3gt and looks very nice i admit, like it a lot. They did a pretty good job with that c-pillar and backseat room is not that bad, better than the mercedes cla i sat in… But i’m not a big person so most of those type cars are ok for me
Oh yeah one more thing: it’s a 5-door like the 3gt…
It’s a good thing they did that tho, the boot is too short for a normal trunk imho. So it’s not a baby 6gc…
I would prefer this over a 3gt wich is a little bulkier, for ppl who need space … CONTINUED
The F85 X5 M has been spotted in testing since late 2012, and now it’s time for the F86 X6 M to hit the test circuit.
It’s not difficult to identify this next generation X6 M as it bears the tell-tale M model signs – huge front air intakes, more aggressive sideskirts and rear diffuser, blue M brakes, and cross drilled rotors (the first for any X6 model). The newest M styling trends are also evident — the double-slatted kidney grilles and the angled exhaust tips.
The front end styling of the next generation X6 (F16) and X6 M (F86) will share a similar front end design to the X5 (F15) and X5 M (F85), while the rear end will be similar to the BMW X4 … CONTINUED

Carsten Pries, the Director of Product at BMW M, recently had these comments to share at the Detroit Auto Show:
Electromechanical Power Steering Better Than Hydraulic?
This is the most exciting news to come from our interview. Surprised? You should be. And you probably should be skeptical until driving reviews come in but what we learned gets us excited. This is NOT the EPS that you have driven in other BMWs in the slightest. This is M’s version of EPS. New hardware, new software, new everything.
I think probably one of the misunderstandings is…if you have to adapt something that is there and try what you can get out of it. Then you may be limited in your possibilities but if you consider something right from the … CONTINUED

It’s no secret that BMW has been on the forefront of weight reduction in volume production vehicles. Starting with their tie-up SGL Group and development of the BMW i vehicles, they have been finding great use for carbon fibre in weight reduction. The key to this is carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). While this highly touted material is being used in the BMW i vehicles, it has yet to make its way into a series production BMW, until now…
And so it makes sense that the BMW 7-Series (usually the most cutting edge and forward looking BMW on the tech front) will be the first series vehicle to use this magical material in key areas to reduce weight, and thereby increase efficiency. As the use … CONTINUED
We’ve shown you plenty of Austin Yellow M4 photos from under the bright showlights at auto shows, but now have a good look at Austin Yellow under the natural lighting of the outdoors.
BMW Motorsport and BMW Team RLL experienced a successful start to the United SportsCar Championship (USCC), securing an impressive podium result in what was the start of a new era in American motor racing. The number 55 BMW Z4 GTLM crossed the line second in the GTLM at the 24-hour race of Daytona (US), after completing a total of 679 laps of the iconic “Daytona International Speedway” road course. Bill Auberlen (US), Andy Priaulx (GB), Joey Hand (US) and Maxime Martin (BE) struggled to match the pace of their direct opposition on the long straights, due to the significant top speed deficit of their BMW Z4 GTLM. However, BMW Team RLL made up for this thanks to a great strategy, consistent lap times and … CONTINUED
