Well, there is no end to the photoshops of the upcoming M5 that have been bubbling to the surface. The general notion is that the cars line will follow the E90/E92 M3 front bumper however it will be significantly more angular (think X5/X6 M) and obviously wider to fill out the larger 5-Series based body
We bring you the most revealing photos yet of the next generation 6-series convertible (F13). Compared to the previous sightings, the car seen here reveals more details. For the first time we are seeing the front kidney grill outlines and outlines of the headlights and tail lights.
The F13 6-series will be a folding hardtop convertible (the cloth covering the hardtop is a decoy) and is expected to debut late this year for a possible premiere at the Geneva Autoshow in … CONTINUED
The F20 1-series 5-door hatchback continues its winter cold weather testing in Arjeplog, a town in Northern Sweden. The new 5-door hatch 1-series is expected debut sometime next year.
We recently brought you photos of the F30 3-series during winter testing, and here is a video of an F30 out making its round in the snow and cold. Seeing it in motion and from different distances really gives a great perspective into its shape and proportions (which looks great). The little bit of exhaust note we can hear also sounds pretty aggressive.

Here is the latest artistic impression of the F30 from Germanys AutoBild magazine. As you can see this impression is highly BMW CS Concept car influenced.
After looking at these pictures, Scott26 had this to say:
That broken rear shoulder line actually has its roots in BMW history too most recently it was revived on the CS Concept Car. … CONTINUED
For 2011, along with the standard 3-series, BMW is going to be updating the M3 Coupe and Convertible as well. The most obvious different is the inclusion of the new LED tailights to the M3 while leaving the current design on the front of the car alone. IMO this is the perfect combination (hopefully a retrofit wont be too difficult).
Other changes which are not so obvious in these pictures are interior changes such as little updates on the trim pieces … CONTINUED
BMW has already confirmed that the BMW X3 (F25) will be all new for 2011. Additionally, production is to be moved to South Carolina in the newly expanded plant alongside the other X vehicles.
The car itself is built upon a shared platform with the next generation 3-series (F30) and since the X3 will be released before the next generation 3-series it will actually serve as a preview for the 3-series.
Benefiting from the 3-series lineage, the … CONTINUED
Here are the latest photos of the F30 3-series that has been spending its time working hard in snow/winter testing. This car was previously caught on video leaving a gas station and now we can see the car in deep snow. If you havent seen it, here is Miis wonderful detailed evaluation of the F30 body based on the spyshots available so far. And now, onto the new pictures…
Spyshots.nl does it again! The, soon to be a reality, LCI (facelift) of the X5 has taken the track up north for cold weather testing. This is likely the final round of testing as the car is expected to be revealed on the internet after the conclusion of the Geneva show with its official autoshow presentation in the spring of 2010.
As you can see from the photos, the changes them selves are subtle but have just the right … CONTINUED
Admist the recent flurry of F10 5-series reviews its nice to see the car from a different perspective. In this case, the perspective is as simple as a color change. Given that Alpine White is one of the more popular colors for BMWs in the USA, we will be very likely to see this color combination ALOT, and its nice to see the F10 wear this color so well.
Here is a very insightful post by BMW insider Scott26/27 who mentions that an iS version of the X3 is definitly fair game, especially in the USA where such a model could find itself in some demand.
BMW have high hopes for this Sport Activity Vehicle that the design department are working on a iS Specification model with an Aerodynamic pack reminiscent of the new … CONTINUED
The psychadelic equiped camod next generation BMW 1-Series (chassis code F20) was seen in early December starting out cold weather testing and now a month later continues heavy testing.
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 them as the 3-series and so similar coupe and sedan variants are … CONTINUED
The first teaser image of the upcoming BMW M1 has surfaced on 1addicts! The small image shows a beefy front bumper sculpted in latest M-style, with huge air inlets for engine and brake cooling. According to insiders, the M1 will be unveiled in a unique matte finish, after being tested with many different matte finishes (sepang bronze, white, etc.). Colors options will be plentiful, ranging from the current M colors to updates of past M colors, and even an Inka Orange color (from the … CONTINUED
BMW continues testing the X3 but doesn’t yet want to pull of anymore camo so once again we see the black and white psychadelic camo and not much else. Like the X1, the proportions look good and this should end up as a very nice upgrade to the current X3 when the car is finally released.

Time marches on and the F10 BMW M5 continues its cold weather testing ahead of its scheduled launch for 2011. To recap, this car is expected to utilize a turbo charged V8 engine derived from the motor used in the X5 and X6 M. Power outputs are still unknown but I would bet on it being higher then that of the X5/X6M. Other M5 Spy pictures can be seen here.

Car Magazine has published pictures of the M1 undergoing cold weather testing in Scandinavia. While the guys at Car Magazine are assuming that this is a mule for the next gen 1-series coupe (F2x), its safe to say this actually is an M1 prototype. Why? The very same car was spotted around the BMW M headquarter in Garching (near Munich) before: http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=311113
The sister publication of Autobild "Allrad" has a new Huckfeldt interpretation of the forthcoming BMW X3 Sport Activity Vehicle. As of all the publications who have created illustrations of the X3 , This interpretation stands out as the closest to the production car which this time around will be built at BMWs Spartanburg plant in South Carolina.
Taking as many of the characteristics from the E83 and refining them such as the rising glasshouse towards the rear of the car coincides with … CONTINUED
We believe this to be an F30 3-series in testing, though Autocar claims it as a F30 body on top of the future 3-series GT’s mechanicals. According to them:
