Autocar.co.uk got a chance to sit down with the new 650i and got to do a full road test/review of the car.

First, they found the 650i to be a ‘seriously rapid car’, only half a second slower then the Bentley Continental GTC getting to 100mph. They go on to comment on the highly responsive turbos and transmission. The overall impression they give is that the engine/drivetrain on this car is perfect.

What they didn’t particularly like was the steering, handling and general responsiveness of the car to their inputs, they go on to say …

On the heels of the ‘official’ release of the new 6 series Coupe, the press are now releasing their 6 series cabriolet reviews. Author Dave Moore writes an interesting review of the new 6 titled, “BMW’s six pistol pleasure returns”, citing the car’s high points as: Simpler styling; technology laden; thunderous performance; useful passenger and load areas; nimble for one so big.

Low points: A bit heavy; absence of smaller engine choice; dominant iDrive screen, and overall verdict: Impressive convertible is a cinch to drive and even with all that technology, great fun.

We’ve had reviews from several 3-series owners after the 100k miles mark, but this is the first time we’ve heard from a 1-series owner with over 100k miles on the car, already a pretty amazing feat considering this 1-series coupe began its service in April 2008. As with the rest of the BMW range, the 1-series seems to hold up very well to high mileage with just basic regular basic maintenance and the occasional covered-under-warranty replacement/fix.

Motortrend sets forth their argument for why they believe that BMW’s best 6-cylinder motor currently is the F10 535d’s N57 turbo diesel. As they put it: Part urban assault weapon, part trans-continental cruiser, the 535d is the best of the new 5-series models I

This is a must action video of the monstrous 700+hp Manhart V8RS 4.4L M3 with the engine transplant from X6M! It’s in German, but when you have sights and sounds like this, words are barely necessary. Just look at the driver’s reaction and you can imagine the fury of this car.

Our community’s first review of the M3 M Performance exhaust has been posted by lucky owner aajami. Sure, it’s pricey, but it’s OEM quality and fit, as well as maintaining the factory warrantty. Check out the review, photos, and video inside.
