The F10 5-series recently debuted in Asia at a launch event gala held in Hong Kong. This particular F10 launch event appears to be the fanciest one yet, including musical and artistic performances and celebrity appearances. Even the F10 models on hand were the most decked out, with more wheel variety and some accessory parts.

Thanks for pinguhk for sharing the photos.

We recently published a great review from E90post member Kamando of his 335d M-sport as a highway cruiser. There was however a more important question he had yet to answer: Can the 335d possibly be any fun to drive on the Nürburgring? His answer is a resounding “Hell Yes!” Review inside.

Spotted during testing on the Nurburgring today was the BMW M1 test mule! This test mule doesnt wear the more advanced prototype M1 body as we posted earlier, but is out testing powertrain, chassis, suspension, and handling properties. We also see for the first time what could be the carbon fiber roof.
