While visiting the famed Nurburgring, our own forum member Dackelone decided to hang around ring side and snap a few photos (you can see his entire Nurburgring trip thread here), and what he cought here is quite interesting.
This looks to be a Deep Sea Blue BMW X1 which was fit with an engine sounding like the new turbo inline 6 cylinder engine from BMW that is making its way through the entire -35i lineup (aka the N55). … CONTINUED
As you would want, BMW is continually testing the upcoming 1-Series (for 2012) ahead of its launch. And as its size implies, the 1-series will be the smallest BMW in the lineup and arguably one of the more sporty ones to drive.
Not only is the extensive testing and engineering period in the run-up to launch day testament to this fact, but BMW themselves have repeatedly hinted to the importance of this model. It is said that … CONTINUED
Some new photos of the 2012 F30 3-series, spied testing in the German countryside. Not a whole lot new is gleamed from these photos, but it’s always good to see the F30 continue its testing. Based on the info we’ve heard, the F30 sedan may debut at the 2012 Geneva autoshow.
We bring you the first ever photos of the 2012 F10 M5 with its rear camouflage completely removed, but what’s underneath is a surprise. It appears to be a 550i bumper (shown by the slanted rectangular exhaust cutout). Perhaps the 550i bumper is on merely for testing? Or is BMW having a little fun with us? Either one is fine with us as we hope the final M5 rear bumper design is more aggressive than this.

We bring you the most revealing F10 M5 photos yet. Save for some camouflage tape, the M5 front fascia design can be clearly seen. We last saw the M5s exposed bumper back in May, but not in this detail and not this exposed.
Compared to the standard F10 5-series, the F10 M5 front bumper is clearly more sculpted and angular, and features the trapezoidal design as seen on the current M3. Huge side air inlets flank the center trapezoid … CONTINUED
We recently brought you photos of the F13 2012 6-series convertible undergoing testing on the ring. Various F13′s have also been spotted on and around the Nurburgring in various models and trims, including what looks to be 650i and 640i convertibles.
Seen here is the most recent sighting of the upcoming 2012 1-series hatchback undergoing testing in southern Europe. The dual split exhausts out back hints at a turbo engine. It could be the rumored Tri-Turbo Petrol 4 cylinder engine, or perhaps the N54 6-cylinder twin-scroll turbo motor. The split exhausts, the extra cooling ducts up front in the camouflage, larger wheels, and what appears to be large brakes, all point to this potentially being a range topping F20 1-series.
We bring you photos of the F13 6-series convertible sporting a tan color soft top for the first time. We have not yet seen confirmation of the soft top colors to be available on the upcoming F13. If this tan top is one of those colors, it certainly matches Milano Beige (as pictured), but were not sure it will work well with other exterior colors.
The soon to be outgoing 2010 6-series convertible is currently available in a black or … CONTINUED
Here are the newest F10 M5 spy photos, featuring a new set of wheels which have yet to be spotted on the new M5 test mules. The next M5 is expected to utilize a turbo charged V8 engine derived from the motor used in the X5 and X6 M.

We recently brought you PHOTOS of the next gen F30 3-series testing at the Nurburgring. We now bring you the best F30 3-series video yet, both in testing on the Ring and driving in public. The next F30 3-series is expected to debut in 2012.
This 650 F13 6-series convertible has hit the Nurburgring with less camo than previously seen during its track testing. To recap, this next generation 6-series will very closely follow the design lines that have been set fourth with the BMW Concept Gran Coupe.
Here are some more pictures of the 1-series M, including the first interior shots. This is still the prototype, so its subject to changes, but so for we have M3 seats, M3 steering wheel and different gauges (not sure if the two-tone dials are here to stay). Fuel cutoff appears to be at 7,000 rpm. Contrary to some reports, you can also see a proper LSD.
The BMW 1M Coupe has been officially revealed and announced by BMW! See inside for preliminary details, videos, and photos. Expect the 1M Coupe to delivered beginning in first half of 2011.
We bring you the most revealing top-down photos yet of the F13 6-series convertible – a 640, as well as a top-up 640 convertible in a new color. The 2012 6-series convertible will have a traditional folding soft top (but a factory fitted optional hardtop will be available). Production of the 640 convertible will begin in September 2011.
Here is the BMW announced production schedule for the F12 / F13 6-series coupe and convertible.
A few shots of the new interior for the F25. It looks like the X3 will recieve a similar tach to the 7 series and 5 series, which is really awesome news. The new interior style is of course one of the best traits of new BMWs and theres no signs that BMW has cheaped out at all on the X3. I can’t wait to not only see this new X3 but feel the quality as well.
Its been months since the F20 1-series has been spotted in testing, but here it is in the Sierra Nevada mountains of Spain, perhaps undergoing high altitude testing. No word yet on whether the F20 will make it to the North American market.
Not much is known about the next generation 1-series, but what is known is that BMW sees this car as a core vehicle to its lineup in the future. Potentially, this car would be as important to … CONTINUED
Its coming soon. I swear
Following spy pics of the next generation BMW X3 is getting tiring now that we know basicly what the car looks like. We are all ready to see the real deal, even more so that we believe this car will be a segment leader with the new upgrades. These photos by PalBay bring some closeup and some interesting angles…they just might be the last spy pics prior to the reveal.Hopefully it wont be long before I can post up some "Full Monty" real … CONTINUED
