As many of you may know, the owner’s manual for the new F01 7 Series BMW is on the iDrive and no paperback manual is provided. This seems like a very novel use of technology, although if your car battery dies you may have wished you had the booklet

Hamann announced that they now have a body kit to go with their tuning programme for the 2009 BMW 7 Series.

Visually, components like a rear boot spoiler, a rear roof spoiler, four tailpipes and new side skirts can be spotted. The interior shows sporty pedals, and black leather seats and carpets stitched with the Hamann logo.

Heinz Krusche is BMW’s chassis guru. I’ve met him several times, and always enjoyed top insight from him (not least his tales of how he keeps DSC turned on for the road – but ‘always’ turns it off when on track…).
Such people exist in every car company, but they don’t always have the power of Krusche.

A BMW spokesman talking with iMotorMag states that there is no business case for making an M Roadster/M Coupe based on the Z4 due to the poor economic climate.
However, the good news is that they do reveal that BMW is planning an M Sport package which will include a body kit, large alloy wheels, tuned suspension and an M-branded steering wheel. In the cards is talk of an ECU remap upgrade to boost engine output of the 3.0-litre twin-turbo by … CONTINUED
