Here’s a real life look at the upcoming BMW X4 SAV versus the current X3. Both cars share the same platform.
The F82 M4 and F80 M3 prototypes have now shed a significant amount of camouflage, revealing more than ever.
In the collection of photos and videos below you’ll see a Frozen White M3, Alpine White M3, and a silver M4 coupe. By dropping some of their camouflage and being fitted with more final equipment/parts, we can now see (for the first time or better than before):
Carbon Fiber Seats
Carbon fiber front seats can be made out in the photos as the F80 M3 drives by the … CONTINUED
Here is a set of photos of the most revealing M4 prototype yet, together with a great video of the M4 being tested hard at the Nurburgring.
Have a look at the best videos yet of the 2014 F80 M3 undergoing track testing at the Nurburgring. Why are they the best yet? Because they are being pushed to the limits, which has been rare in the videos we’ve seen prior to this.
Listen to that S55 engine!
It appears that the F80 M3 has advanced to the final evaluation phase. The F80 has dropped some camouflage, added LED lights, and now features a trunk spoiler lip.
It’s now clear that the F80 M3 Sedan shares the same front end as the F82 M4 Coupe and each will feature an aggressive M styled front bumper with the now exposed air curtains, LED headlights and double slat grilles with M3/M4 badge. Late last year we put together a M4 render (see below) which were very … CONTINUED
The first prototypes of the first F83 BMW M4 Convertible have been spotted as they commence their public testing.
First sighting of a white BMW M235i coupe.
The latest F80 M3 spotting gives us the best look yet at its newest revealed features — double slat kidney grilles and a double-bubble carbon fiber roof.
Both the F80 M3 and F82 M4 will continue BMW’s latest trend to fit M models with double slat kidney grilles with a model badge affixed. The M6 and M5 LCI all feature this design.
And multiple M3 prototypes have now been spied with a camouflaged top, indicating a carbon fiber roof – first in the U.S. and now in … CONTINUED
More looks at the BMW F82 M4 Coupe testing at the Nurburgring.
The LCI refresh model for the current F07/F10/F11 5 Series begins production this month, but BMW has already begun testing the next generation 5 Series. We’ve spotted the next gen 5 Series Touring here.
The next 5 Series is said to be shedding some weight, hopefully by way of the carbon fiber technologies which the next generation G11 7 Series will receive.
At this early testing stage, much of the car is still covered in heavy camouflage, but we’ve put together some comparison photos below.
Expect to see … CONTINUED
The F80 M3 has been spotted with a camouflaged roof. How is this significant? Well, its brother, the F82 M4 Coupe has often been spotted with a camouflaged roof (as well as an optional top with moonroof), which typically indicates the presence of a carbon fiber roof, but the F80 M3 Sedan has never been seen with a camouflaged top, until now.
This F80 M3 prototype was spotted by a BIMMERPOST member while it undergoes hot weather testing in Las Vegas (where it recently hit 117F … CONTINUED
Here is the production i3 in its most revealing look yet – more than 90% revealed. The i3 will be officially unveiled on July 29, 2013.
First BMW revealed the upcoming BMW X4 in concept form, then came the photoshops of what it could look like in various colors, and now in the next stage of online followship of the new BMW, come the very first prototypes of the production version.
Just like the bigger siblings in the BMW X family, the BMW X5/X6, the BMW X4 will be closely paired with the X3 in both looks and underlying architecture. The styling is where the real differences seem to be. And thankfully, … CONTINUED
Now that the 4 Series Coupe (F32) has been revealed, it’s no surprise that we’ve now spotted the 4 Series Convertible (F33) with less camouflage than ever, essentially fully revealing itself. As with its predecessor (E93 3 Series convertible), the 4 Series Cabrio features a folding metal roof.
Earlier spyshots show the hard top operation and the design is largely similar to the current E93 convertible (video in action below). The Mebourne Red model features the M Sport Package.
The F33 will share the same engine and … CONTINUED
Spy photos of the upcoming 2014 BMW 228i coupe in Orion Silver.
The 228i coupe will join the M235i coupe as the first two 2 Series models available in the US. Both models will begin production in November 2013, as a 2014 model year.
The following spy photos of the M235i shows you what to expect underneath the camouflage in terms of the car’s sides and the front end – with a different front bumper design of course.

The reveal of the all new 2014 BMW X5 (F15) is imminent, but testing continues on the F15 X5 M.
Testing on the F15 X5 M began last year [first sighting], but current mules have now dropped much camouflage. What’s revealed are the expected signature M components – huge front air intakes, aggressive sideskirts and rear diffuser, blue M brakes, and cross drilled rotors (the first for any X5 model). We also get a better look at the quad exhaust pipes which, unlike the current X5 … CONTINUED
The 4 Series M Sport drops some camouflage and we get our most revealing peek yet, on a F33 4 Series Convertible prototype.
A BMW 2 series prototype crashed on the German Autobahn yesterday evening. According to the article, the driver lost control of his car at high speed, clipping 50m of the beam barrier on the right hand side of the road and came to a rest after another 150m in the left hand lane. Furthermore, 4 other cars on the other side were hit by debris. Luckily the driver sustained only minor injuries and no one else was hurt.
