For the methodology that Interbrand applies to come up with its list see: http://www.interbrand.com/en/best-gl…thodology.aspx. The major criteria used are Financial Analysis, Role of Brand and Brand Strength.

We’ve shown you many looks at the exterior of the X4 prototypes, but no views of the X4 interior (not even on the concept X4), until now.

The X4′s interior design is predictably similar to the X3, with which it shares a platform (see comparison photo). The new iDrive touch control knob can be seen. As with the X3, the X4 will be produced in Spartanburg. Expect the X4 to hit the market in the second half of 2014 – early 2015.

Augusto Farfus (BR) won his second DTM race in a row at the wheel of the Castrol EDGE BMW M3 DTM. The BMW Team RBM driver dominated the penultimate race of the year in Zandvoort (NL) to claim his third win of the season. Starting from second on the grid, the 30-year-old immediately pulled ahead of BMW Team MTEK driver Marco Wittmann (DE), who was lining up on pole position for the first time in his fledgling DTM career, and was leading by the first corner.
