A preview look at the BMW M4 F82 Coupe in Yas Marina Blue, a new standard color for the upcoming F80 M3 and F82 M4.
Testing on the second generation BMW X5 M continues while the prototypes shed some camouflage. This is the first red F85 X5 M we’ve seen and as with earlier prototypes, it wears the signature M components – huge front air intakes, more aggressive sideskirts and rear diffuser, blue M brakes, and cross drilled rotors (the first for any X5 model). We also have a better look at the quad exhaust pipes which, unlike the current X5 M, feature a new angled design (same as … CONTINUED
One of the unknowns surrounding the BMW X4, which will make its debut at the 2014 Geneva show in March, is whether it will be offered in a full blown M model (i.e. X4 M) like its bigger cousins – the X5 M and X6 M. Early indications have been no.
But a new report suggests that although a full fledged M model may not be in BMW’s plans, a diesel M Performance Model may be. This is according to statements made in a recent … CONTINUED
We bring you the first live look at the 2016 X1 (F48) prototypes. The F48 recently began its testing a couple of months ago and while still heavily camouflaged, the test mules reveal a brawnier and stockier look than the current E84 X1. Compared to the E84, the F48 X1 features a shorter front end, shortened overhangs and a taller and more upright greenhouse. While some may mistaken the E84 X1 for a larger wagon, there’s no mistaking the upcoming F48 X1 as a … CONTINUED
The BMW M4 Concept has been making the rounds at many venues, beginning with its debut at the Pebble Beach week three months ago.
It’s now making its auto show premiere at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, the only auto show that it will be making an appearance. That’s because the next major auto show – the 2014 Detroit NAIAS in January will feature the dual world premieres of the production 2014 M3 (F80) and 2014 M4 (F82).
What will the production models bring? The M4 … CONTINUED
Picked up German magazine Sport Auto today. It features an interview with BMW M development chief Albert Biermann and a ride in the M4 with Biermann driving.
This is my translation of the major parts of this article. My apologies for bad sentences or missed meanings (I have tried my best from a hotel room after a long day at work…):
The BMW 4 Series Gran F36 has been spied in action on video.
Check out how the car looks on the road and on the track.
Have a listen at the F80 M3 with its bi-turbo s55 inline 6 cylinder engine and exhaust during a cold start.
This M3 sounds a bit ‘off’, particularly during idle, so perhaps the exhaust is still being tuned on this car or the recording device has distorted the actual sound. The M3/M4 has sounded better in previous videos (reposted below).
Some sites have been reporting the above image as a leaked official photo, but as you can see below, it’s simply a photoshopped image of an official wallpaper image of the 435i Convertible (source) using styling elements from the M4 Concept. Hence the oddly angled front wheel.
The real M4 convertible should not be much different than the photoshopped image however, as it will share exterior styling with the production M4 Coupe, which will adopt its styling from the M4 Concept.
We recently revealed to you the colors for the upcoming 2014 M3/M4 via the dealer demo order guide, which reveals several eye catching colors, including Austin Yellow Metallic, Yas Marina Blue Metallic and Sakhir Orange Metallic.
Austin Yellow Metallic has already been previewed by way of the M4 Concept car (painted in Aurum Dust) and we recently posted the first look and swatches of Yas Marina Blue.
Now have a good look at how the M4 Coupe looks in Sakhir Orange Metallic, seen here with the … CONTINUED

As you can see, it’s basically the production version of the M4 Concept’s Aurum Dust color.
A 2014 M3 and M4 Order Guide has just been released to U.S. dealers for the ordering of dealer demo launch cars. As before, this list should generally be reflective of what options will be available for customer cars, though it may not be all-inclusive.

The BMW M4 Concept is making its first appearance in the UK. It’s currently at the BMW UK HQ and is available to the public for viewing.
Commercial photo or video shoots for the upcoming BMW X4 have commenced, with this commercial shoot being witnessed by a BIMMERPOST member in downtown Dallas.
We’ve shown you stills, now have a live look at the BMW X4 SAV prototype undergoing testing on the Nurburgring and around town.
The “baby X6″ will stick close to its concept design, as shown by this video, the reposted spy photos below, and the revealed patent design images.
As with the X3, the X4 will be produced in Spartanburg, SC.

Now that the first official specs of the F80 M3 and F82 M4 are known and we’ve had plenty of looks at the M4 Concept as well as M3/M4 spy pics and video, we thought it’d be interesting to tally a count of how many BIMMERPOST members already have pre-orders in for the 2014 M3 or M4.
For those who have pre-ordered, you can check multiple boxes above and indicate which model you’ve pre-ordered.
Even more photos have been posted of the BMW M235i coupe ahead of its official reveal on Friday (German time).
This time we get a glance at its interior as well as the rear design.
