At the BMW Group, the fourth Industrial Revolution has already begun: A project in the bumper production of the Landshut plant shows how the virtual and the real worlds can merge in everyday production procedures even today.

Innovation from the gaming world.
Automated gesture detection has long been introduced in various industries, such as the gaming market: … CONTINUED

Check out these F80 M3 dyno and weight figures from EAS.

On the scales, this F80 M3 weighed in at 3590 lbs (pounds) with a nearly 50/50 weight distribution. The dyno numbers are what really impressed us, though. BMW claims this motor makes 425hp … CONTINUED

Autocar looks at the M325i coupe vs the A45 AMG and answers the question – Which is the Better Driver’s Car?
Some great insight into how the F80 M3 (and M4 by relation) compares against the Audi RS5, by an RS5 owner, from a back-to-back driving comparison.
So, I went by BMW of Silver Spring after work for my turn in the MG M3 and made sure I drove my RS5 so that I could get an immediate, back to back impression of M3 and as I drove the RS5 home.
Here are my thoughts…
Looks: The F80 simply looks FANTASTIC! Especially, in the MG! YMB and SS … CONTINUED

We even had some crazy BMW lovers(nuts) come all the way from Moscow, Russia! Some 5K kms one way! Now that’s some RESPECT! … CONTINUED
