RIP BMW F1 (2000-2009). Nick Heidfeld places 5th in the final race and BMW bids farewell to F1 racing. This is certainly a bitter sweet moment for everyone involved, but BMW has commited itself to other forms of racing from this point forward and F1 is taking a new direction as well. Although, BMW is racing to sell off all its remaining F1 assets, I think most of us know that BMW will probably make a return to F1 some day in the future when the stars align again (although that might be another 30 years from now..)
Okayama, 1st November 2009. Andy Priaulx (GB) and Augusto Farfus (BR) scored wins for BMW in rounds 21 and 22 of the FIA World Touring Car Championship. Both races in Okayama (JP) were held in the wet, and Priaulx claimed victory for BMW Team UK in the first one. BMW Team Germany

Tommy Milner and Dirk Müller powered the BMW GT2 to a 1st place finish at the first round of the Asian Le Mans Series. This win marks the second 1st place finish for the BMW GT2, which previously won the ALMS race in Road America.

M3post member Michael Cooper & his M3 not only beat Bob Lutz in GM’s CTS-V challenge yesterday, but placed 1st out of actual contestants! His reaction inside.
An E90post member is making lemonade with lemons so to speak as he turns his wrecked and soon-to-be replaced fender into an art piece which will later be hung on his wall as decoration.
The automotive world has always known only two variants of the E34 M5 – sedan and touring… until now. As recently revealed to select journalists during a 25 year M5 celebration, BMW has actually also built a convertible E34 M5 and was all set to put it into production. Unforutnately, just a week prior to its scheduled Geneva debut, the powers that be at BMW nixed the convertible M5 out of fear that demand for non-M5 convertibles would eat into 3 series convertible sales.
I wonder what other secret cars BMW has built but is keeping inside its vault
