In only its second season of competition, the BMW Rahal Letterman Racing Team won the American Le Mans Series GT Manufacturer and Team Championships in the closing moments of the 13th annual Petit Le Mans, after a season of hard-fought competition.
The fourth place finish by the embattled No. 92 M3 GT of Bill Auberlen, Tommy Milner and Dirk Werner was the only race in 2010 that the Team did not finish with at least one M3 GT on the podium. The No. 92 M3 GT completed … CONTINUED
We bring you a videos of the full 2010 Paris Motor Show BMW Press Conference, presented by Ian Robertson, BMW Board Member and Director of Sales and Marketing. Presented during the press conference is the new BMW X3, 6-series Coupe Concept, and Mini Scooter E Concept.
BMW of North America is submitting a letter to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) this week announcing a voluntary recall of approximately 198,000 V8 and V12-powered BMW 5 Series, 6 Series, 7 Series, and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars models produced between the 2002 and 2010 model years.

We’ve updated our 335i LCI Performance Parts gallery with a new HD walk around video, take a look!
World premiere in Paris: the new BMW X3.
The new BMW X3 steps up for its world debut at the Paris Motor Show as the successor to a genuine top seller. Compared with its successful predecessor, the new Sports Activity Vehicle delivers that bit more agility as well as driving comfort. A similarly palpable increase in interior space and stowage capacity benefits rear-seat passengers in particular, but is also welcome in the luggage compartment. With its load capacity now expandable from 550 to 1,600 litres … CONTINUED
One of the first things to catch your eye at the BMW stand in Paris this year has to be the BMW Z4 sDrive35is in Atacama Yellow. I believe this is part of the Limited Edition Design Pure Impulse package originally intended for the UK (and seen here: http://e89.zpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=404269). The matching color arrangement of the Pure Impulse package combined with the sDrive35is drivetrain makes this car the best Z4 one can have at the moment! No word yet if … CONTINUED
Next up in our continuing coverage of the 2010 Paris Autoshow is a beautiful example of the BMW M3 equipped with M Performance parts and painted in Frozen Black Matte. This car looks unbelievable in person.
This car is equipped with M Performance parts including the M Performance sports silencer that adds distinctive sound in a 40% lighter body with improved temperature-resistent chromium-nickel titanium build. The car sits on 19-inch M light-alloy wheels in Competition Design. Aerodynamic/stylistic … CONTINUED
The BMW 3-Series coupe with BMW Performance part is nothing new, but this particular model happens to be the LCI (“facelift”) BMW 3-Series Coupe and as far as I can tell, the first time i’ve seen this car live at an autoshow! Enjoy.
By far, the main headline attraction at the 2010 Paris Autoshow is the BMW 6-Series Concept Coupe which is basicly the upcoming BMW 6-Series Coupe with the word Concept appended to it so as to avoid official annoucement, for now.
The car was revealed in dramatic fashion, being driven down a sloping ramp and coming to a stop infront of the assembled international press. Ian Robertson was the host of the day and gave the audience a well done introduction … CONTINUED
This very unique shade of Yellow, previously referred to as Atacama Yellow as part of the Design Pure Impulse package in the UK has now shows its face adorned over a fairly well appointed Z4 sDrive 35is. This color is a real headturner!
