Chicago area BMW owners come out of hibernation for their first meet following the winter.
The next generation G11/G12 BMW 7 Series will have its reveal tomorrow via a private invite-only event. Check out some first official peeks at the 7 Series headlights inside.
We’ve spied the next gen G11/G12 7 Series’ display gauges before, but here’s the closest look yet and it once again confirms a hybrid physical/digital multifunction display.
Physical semi-circles frame the speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge and temperature gauge, while all other elements appear to be digital, including needles and numbers.
The gauges are colored red as the car is in Sport mode, so we expect that the display gauges overall look will change with the car’s current mode (Sport, Comfort, Eco Pro), much like that seen … CONTINUED

First F85 X5 M dyno testing by IND. Words by IND:
BMW’s turbo engines have radically changed the M ownership experience. While many lament the loss of BMW’s normally aspirated powerplants for their ability to give every owner a race car like experience on the street or on the track, few can deny the ability of the new turbo powerplants to ignite an internal horsepower war within BMW M’s very own walls. With each turbo car released by the M division, the bar is … CONTINUED

Newest video ad promo for the F20 1 Series LCI facelift model.
MINI showed off a new concept for a pair of augmented reality glasses. Among its many concept-y features was one interesting one. The goggles will actually let you see through the car. Kinda neat.

Along with the see-through capabilities, MINI’s augmented reality gear will also do … CONTINUED
