A few weeks ago I sent BMW AG an email asking for a factory tour. The very next day they sent me a reply back with a date and time for my tour! I was really excited to go see where our cars are made!
Leipzig is only a few hours drive from where I live in Germany… so it was a nice day trip for me. A little over two hours from my home in Bamberg.

Edmunds InsideLine is reporting on what the future of the BMW X line might hold, namely a BMW X4, think BMW X6 but in 3-series size.

Shortly after BMWs victory at the 24h @ the Nurburgring, Dr. Segler, the director of BMW M GmbH sat down to give an interview with the German language publication Auto News, where he comes right out and confirms the BMW 1-Series M.

We bring you the first photos of the F13 6-series convertible confirming that the 2012 6-series convertible will indeed have a traditional folding soft top (but a factory fitted optional hardtop will be available). These 650 convertible photos are also the most revealing yet of the body, which loses its plastic camoflage cladding to reveal most of the production body.
