This Mototrend matchup shows just how far the Mustang GT has come and how impressive the 2011 5.0 model is. This comparison would have been a joke just a few years ago, and you may be be surprised by the results. M3 still wins, but not by as much as BMW fans would naturally guess (or like).
Mineral White Metallic is now available for the 2011 3-series coupe and M3 coupe and these are the first photos we’ve seen. Belonging to an M3POST member, this mineral white M3 shows off the new paint finish nicely. See inside for full set of images.
We bring you the closest and clearest photos yet of the upcoming 6-series interior. The interior looks largely the same from the first interior spyshots from May, and continues to share a majority of its design and elements with the beautiful F10 5-series interior, with the major exception of the navigation screen, which is fixed like the 5-series, but not integrated into the dash.
This particular car was a convertible version.
The 2012 6-series is expected to debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

When a new BMW model is introduced, it’s interesting to see whether it ends up being a model which tends to be long term keepers or more short term leases. To our F10 owners, what are your plans? Indefinite ownership? 6-7 years until next 5-series model is available? Or just until lease is up? Share your plans.
10 days ago we reported on the closing of BMW’s South African Rosslyn Plant due to a strike by the National Union of Metalworkers of SA. We’re happy to report that the strike is now over and the plant has resumed 3-series production.
The union has negotiated a 3-year wage increase and its members will receive 10% wage increase this year and 9% increase in the next two years. The strike resulted in the lost production of approximately 17,000 vehicles among the BMW, VW, Toyota, Ford, GM, Nissan, and Daimler manufacturing plants.
