Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey – April 11, 2008…Navigation systems have become even easier, faster and more convenient to use with the introduction of “MyInfo”. This latest addition to the BMW Assist Safety Plan allows subscribers to send business locations and street addresses and their associated phone numbers found in Google Maps(TM), an innovative online mapping service, from the comfort of their home or office directly to their BMW.
The facelifted BMW 6-Series Coupe was released almost a year ago, revealing a more dynamic coupe and convertible with for the first time a diesel engine. AC Schnitzer, the Aachen, Germany based tuning house, has set out to further refine the 6-Series facelift model.
Head designer Michele Viandante has worked on a new front fascia with a sharpened kidney grille, new rear-spoiler with built-in third brake light and side skirts which make the car look more flat than before. A sports rear silence with chromed tailpipe finishes the look in the back.

Tonight was a great night, first I got to ride in awesomem3s E92 M3 to the dealership and back. It was about a 70 or 80 mile roundtrip and even though I was only a passenger, it was a great experience. Thanks for driving, awesomeM3.

gets a new, larger rear … CONTINUED
M3Post member Gasman gives us his review of the M-DCT BMW M3
Well for all the Dinan lovers and haters here is a link on youtube from M5board talking about a future stroker V8 for the M3 that is basically the M5/M6 stroker V10 with 2 cylinders knocked off.
As another tidbit, check out the vids from M5board and the development of the CAI for the V10, an impressive amount of effort and true "design" work to make it breathe better. A lot of effort for 20 hp but it shows what work it takes to develop a product like this. Performance without sacrifice.
and now some photos of the upcoming BMW 7 series (F01) interior!
The BMW 7 Series unmasking continues!
A very lucky member of 1Addicts has installed the full 135i Performance Package parts on his car and the difference is certainly striking
Located somewhere in the center of Moscow City in Russia, this humongous billboard that advertises BMW’s sporty “M” models, covers an area of approximately 65,000 square feet or about 6,000 square meters. The billboard is so big that BMW has actually placed life-size versions of its “M” car range on it!
