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

We’ve shown you plenty of F30 3 Series LCI (facelift) photos, and here’s the first good look at the 2016 F80 M3 LCI.

As expected and as the camouflage indicates, the only major exterior change will be the new LED tail lights, as seen on the 3 series LCI prototypes. While the F30 3 Series LCI model will additionally receive a nip/tuck for its front end, the F80 M3 shares the M4′s front styling, and if history holds (from the previous E9x M3 generation), neither … CONTINUED

The G30 5 Series prototype has been spotted out testing and being evaluated against the current F10 5 Series. While the exterior size look similar, the platform underneath will be totally new — based on the modular CLAR platform (Cluster Architecture) which will also underpin the next 3, 5, and 6 Series, as well as the next the X3, X4, X5, X6 and X7.

The G30 will accomplish weight reduction using pressed steel, aluminum, magnesium and a carbon fiber load bearing section of the chassis … CONTINUED

Unfortunate serious accident between a 7 Series G11/G12 prototype and a police van. A BMW factory test driver, driving a new 7er G1x prototype was involved in a crash Saturday morning.

All parties involved escaped with only minor injuries.

The accident occurred on the B27a (Theodor-Heuss-Stra├če) in downtown Stuttgart – as several Polizei cars (&vans) were responding to robbery call … CONTINUED

Although the next generation G11/G12 7 Series (G11 = short wheelbase / G12 = long wheelbase) has already been seen in its entirety (photos below), we’ve yet to see a model wearing the M Sport package. Seen here is the 7 Series M Sport, or perhaps even the rumored M770i. BMW has previously shot down rumors of a M7 model.

The M Sport front bumper and side skirts sets this prototype apart from previously spotted 7 Series. If you look closely, you’ll also see quad … CONTINUED

X4 M40i preproduction tester cars have now been spotted in Spartanburg, SC.

Like the other M Performance Automobiles, the X4 M40i will receive the full M Sport treatment (aero kit, wheels, brakes, interior) along with a sportier suspension and chassis.

But, the X4 M40i is particularly important because our upcoming models info shows that it will be powered by a new reworked N55 3.0L turbo six engine (N55B30T0) producing around 370-380 PS (365-375 HP), which will also power the BMW M2 when it arrives in early … CONTINUED

Time flies! The next gen BMW X3 has already begun testing. The next X3 is due around 2016-2017 and here’s the first spotted prototype. It was spied testing with the current X3, and a check into German records confirmed this prototype registered as an X3.

It’s still covered in substantial camouflage, so don’t be fooled by the heavy covering. The lights are especially covered in a way in order to deceive as to their true shape below.

We’ve also put together some quick comparison photos against … CONTINUED

Not satisfied with simply staring at vertigo inducing camouflage on the BMW M2 prototypes, some BIMMERPOST members have undertaken a more in depth visual analysis of the M2 prototype photos.

They believe that the results show a lot more cues from the BMW Vision Concept GT6 than the camouflage would lead us to believe!

We believe this is the first look and visual evidence of the F80 M3 LCI coming this Summer, to coincide with the F30 3 Series LCI. The Autogespot photographer calls this an M2 (F87) prototype, but we believe this is the F80 M3 LCI. The wide fenders and quad exhaust indicates this is an M model.

The strongest evidence this is the F80 M3 LCI are the tail lights, which although still camouflaged, look very similar to the revised LED tail lights seen on 3 … CONTINUED

Increasingly, China has become a source of undisguised new BMW models. The last F48 X1 exposure revealed the front end and headlights, but now we have the full monty. These new photos reveal nearly the entire car.

The F48 X1 rides on BMW’s UKL platform and will come in both FWD and AWD models while engine offerings will range from 3 to 4 cylinders.

Our 2016 model map shows that the US will receive both a sDrive25i and xDrive25i. Production of the sDrive25i begins in November … CONTINUED

We’ve updated with more M2 photos, this time of an advanced prototype body testing in Sweden. The black M2 prototype wears the same body as the red M2 spied back in September, which shows the production bound M styled front bumpers, rear diffuser, fender flares, and quad exhaust. There may be other bodywork yet to come, but you should expect to see kidney grilles with double slats and M2 badge on the production car.
