Well, this head to head is still very much hypothetical, but the recently revealed BMW Concept Gran Coupe is a car hatched to directly compete with the successful Mercedes Benz CLS. The CLS itself is being updated this year, with the new model already seen and set to be officially launched very soon. BMW for its part has been leaking word that the stunningly beautiful Concept Gran Coupe has been green lit for production and will likely slot inside of the 6-Series family.
This BMW X3 teaser site has been in a holding phase for nearly a month now, possibly because it was released too soon? Regardless, all signs and whispers point to a full reveal and release of the X3 in the month of July, possibly even next week sometime. I certainly hope so, because I actually think its a nice model that bucks some trends in its category while at the same time upping the quality levels that are lacking in the current X3. … CONTINUED
The German auto publication Auto Zeitung have begun to speculate on the next BMW M3 Coupe (F32). Whilst some of the details especially of the front end are very similar and not far from exact of the new 3er Sedan. The Coupe repeats the formula that begun with the current 3er Coupe (E92) and offers a car that is more sleeker and sportier than the relevant sedan. A Design formula that has made the E92 our most successful 3er Coupe yet.

We bring you the first ever video of the upcoming BMW M6, captured near the Nurburgring. Though the video is short, it nevertheless provides a dynamic look at the M6, not to mention a listen at the ~600hp V8 twin turbo motor. We hope these wheels are the eventual production wheels as they look terrific in motion!
We bring you the worlds first look at the next generation F30 3-series sedans interior! The interior looks to be a big departure from the E90/E92 interior – the dash seems to be more driver-centric and also becomes less upright, with a very smoothly integrated screen unit. Overall the look reminds us more of the current 1-series than the newer BMWs (F10 5-series, F01 7-series), especially the trim area.

The popularity of the of the 2011 5-series is very apparent so far. BMW AG has sold out of all current 5-series stock in all markets and new customers are waiting 3-4 months for deliveries. This report by BMW is supported by Yahoo Auto’s recent analysis of the hardest cars to get a hold of in the U.S.
The next generation BMW 6-Series (designated as F12 for the Coupe and F13 for the Cabriolet editions) has been ramping up its facetime with the cameras. Thankfully, so far the car has been absolutely stunning from any angle its been photographed at so far, but dont take my word for it, you can see all the photos in our on-going coverage of the car: http://www.bimmerpost.com/6-series.
Just to re-cap the all new 6-Series is said to arrive … CONTINUED
Here are some great photos from the Mid-Ohio Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge and GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series which took place this past weekend. The Bimmerworld 328i won the ST class in the Continental Race and the Turner M6 won the GT class in the Rolex Race.
BMW oldtimer cars at Schloss SeeHof… Photos of this classic car show are brought to us by forum member Dackelone! He happened upon some old classic cars in his town on Thursday. I was over at the Esso gas station buying some gas and I kept seeing all these classic cars drive past me. I kind of figured out where they were going…
When’s the last time you saw a 5,300+ pound car (stock) run 12.5 in the quarter mile? That’s exactly what this 2010 X6M did in Bahrain. See and listen to the ferocity that is the X6M jet down the track. Do NOT mess with these trucks on the road!
Watching BMW’s strip tease of its upcoming vehicles is always fun, especially when its the next 3-series (F30), and even more especially when the testing advances stages. In this case, the 2012 3-series has moved on to track testing on the Nurburgring! Which signals that we should hopefully see some of that body cladding start to come off.
We can also start to peek at the front bumper underneath the heavy camoflage bodysuit in one of the photos below.
It seems the big tuner hauses in Germany have been increasingly in a rush to get their work on the newest BMWs out into the wild. The pattern for the last year or two has been that the tried and true wheels from each of these companies first appears on the car and is paraded around the internet while the company continues its work on the interior/engine and exterior styling parts, which would be revealed at a later date. And so, here is Hartge … CONTINUED
