Sadly I am embarrassed to say yet another Montreal overpass has started to crumble. Happened a couple of blocks from my office. I can still see the news chopper hovering over the scene.
Luckily these two ladies in the X1 which I assume were the occupants weren’t hurt. Imagine it had fallen through the roof or windshield instead of the engine?
You’ve seen our still M3 /M4 photos (reposted below), now have some live looks at the M3 and two M4 coupes from the Detroit Auto Show.
And in case you missed it from the show: We Talk M3 / M4 Nurburgring Time, Electric Steering & Other Tech Highlights w/ BMW M
The timescale works absolutely in favour with the new BMW M3 and BMW M4 Coupe because a gap of two years allows establishment and progress. By this time there will be the Competition Package for the M3 and M4 and there will also be progress for the two cars in an additional specification.
Then you have to think about the next M5 and its leap in technology , lightweight and power increase to just over 600 PS. Granted the M5 won’t be on the market at this point but the arrival will be just over twelve months from the G30.
This is where the gap opens for the M2 and there will be ample room for co-existence.
The interesting thing that really shows progress, is that on … CONTINUED
The 4 Series Gran Coupe (F36) is now under two months away from its world debut at the Geneva auto show and we’ve got some pics from a recent sighting for you.
We recently posted the 2014 BMW 435i Gran Coupe Dealer Order Guide (released to U.S. dealers for the ordering of their launch/ demo cars). As before, this list should generally be reflective of what options will be available for customer cars, though it may not be all-inclusive.
Also revealed recently were the 4 Series Gran Coupe patent design images, which give us a clear look at what to expect under the remaining camouflage. One thing the patent drawings doesn’t reveal to the eye is that the 4 Series Gran Coupe will be a hatchback.

The legend is back: Alessandro Zanardi (IT) will be back in the cockpit on a regular basis in 2014, and will once again do battle for BMW Motorsport out on the racetrack. Zanardi will race in the Blancpain GT Sprint Series behind the wheel of a BMW Z4 GT3, which has been specially modified to meet his unique requirements and will be run by the ROAL Motorsport team.
The 47-year-old lost both legs in a serious crash while racing in 2001, but overcame his disability to return to motorsport. Among other things, Zanardi drove for BMW in the FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC), where he stood on the top step of the podium on four occasions. Having won two gold medals on his handbike … CONTINUED
