BMW 2 Series Active Tourer

By Jens Meiners, BIMMERPOST Correspondent
July 17, 2014

The news that BMW would expand its portfolio to include front-wheel drive models was hardly met with universal excitement in this community. BMW, of course, is all about rear-wheel drive, a low center of gravity, driving dynamics, emotion. But alas, the times are changing: In recent years, we got the “Gran Turismo” models; we witnessed the demise of the naturally aspirated in-line six; … CONTINUED

A review of the BMW M4 by a C63 owner:

I had the opportunity to thoroughly test a new F82 M4 this afternoon. I was able to drive the car on both back roads and the highway. Traffic was minimal so I had plenty of room to have fun (within the bounds of the law, of course).

In short, I was floored (in a good way).

I’ll beef up the quick impressions I’m about to share here later. Feel free to throw out any questions as I’d … CONTINUED

BMW M4 Coupe takes on the RS5 Coupe in this Auto Bild performance comparison.

Some numbers:

The BMW does 0-100 kmh (62mph) in 4.4 secs (VS 4.2 for the RS5 with DSG). The 0-200 is in the advantage of the M4 in 14.1 secs (VS 14.8).

Weight: 1585kg or 3494 pounds VS 1803kg or (3975 pounds!!) for the RS5.

Lap time (Contidrom measuring 3.8km): 1:34,41 secs (similar to Porsche 911), 2 secs quicker than the Audi. I assume with the DCT version, the M4 would be even quicker… … CONTINUED

A great detailed review from a track veteran and new owner of an M4 coupe, from his recent experience at the Spa Francochamps Circuit and Nurburgring.

By karussell (Jim Chambers):

Finally uncompressed a little after a very busy 2 week trip across the pond. I wanted to write my impressions on the car while everything is still fresh in my mind.

Background. I’m not biased towards any brand of auto. I evaluate all types of cars and the badge on them is the least of my concerns. … CONTINUED

The BMW M235i has received a most impressive 98/100 score from Consumer Reports, the highest ever for a BMW model and beating the costlier Porsche 911 and Chevrolet Corvette in road-test reviews.

According to the report, the M235i, which earned 98 out of a possible 100 points, scored better that the discontinued BMW 135i, making it the Munich-based carmaker’s highest-rated vehicle of all time, according to Consumer Reports. That puts BMW close to the score of 99 Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA) received from the magazine … CONTINUED

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 recently traveled to Road America in Wisconsin to sample the new M4 and M3 for the North American press launch. As a previous owner of a Silverstone II 6 speed E90 M3, I was excited to drive the new Ms to find out how they compare!

Manual Purists Rejoice

The first piece of great news about the new M4 and M3 is that BMW offers the three pedal manual transmission as standard.

Some members have asked whether the new manual transmission retains the same rubbery shift … CONTINUED
