The all-new BMW 4 Series Convertible represents the latest chapter in the modern history of BMW Convertibles which dates back to 1987 and the first BMW 3 Series Convertible. As with the new BMW 4 Series Coupe, the 4 Series Convertible embodies the very essence of dynamics and aesthetic appeal in the premium segment. The “4” in its title headlines this new product line for the Convertible and emphasizes not only its stand-out design, but also the fact that any way you look at it, the new 4 Series Convertible represents something more than its BMW 3 Series cousins – 3+1, if you will. The 2014 BMW 4 Series Convertible will again feature a three-piece retractable hardtop with new features and functionality.

PSI recently built a BMW E36 Chumpcar build. Here is the story, as told by one of their technicians, JT:
After hearing the name “Chumpcar” for a few years now, I was determined to figure out what exactly this was. At first, I believed it was a goofy racing series where people decorated some $500 car and and then raced it around various tracks hoping to last through an endurance event. There is another series that is similar called “The 24 hours of Lemons”. A few months ago, we decided to go out to the track in Daytona and watch our very first Chumpcar race. We were pleasantly surprised at the level of craftsmanship that went into some of the nicer cars. These were real race … CONTINUED

For Americans, it may seem way early to see next gen X1 prototypes, but here it is. As the current X1 has been in production in Europe since 2009, the next generation model should come in 2015-2016.
On the outside, the F48 X1 adopts a brawnier and stockier look, owing to a significantly shorter front end, shortened overhangs, and a taller and more upright greenhouse.
The next X1 will make the switch from RWD to FWD by riding on BMW’s FWD “UKL” platform, which will also underpin the next 1 Series and MINIs. However, like the current X1, the next generation model should also be offered with AWD transmission. The switch to FWD will allow for better packaging, less costly production and more interior space.
