We’ve gotten another look at the F15 X5′s interior and it provides the best idea yet of what it will look like once revealed.

Interior / Wheels

The F15 X5′s general dashboard design takes after the F30 3 Series with a multi-layered look. Compared to the current X5 (E70), the next X5′s dashboard has also become more driver-centric, a design element seen in recent new BMW models. It will also be more upright compared to the current X5′s dashboard, which angles and curves away sharply from the driver and passenger. See a comparison image below.

Following on the design of the newest BMW models, the next X5 will feature a large free-standing navigation/infotainment LCD screen. This screen looks to be the 8.8 inch panel used in the latest … CONTINUED

All BMW F82 M4 coupe prototypes spotted have been in black, until now. We spotted this Silverstone (?) looking F82 M4 prototype in Garching, where BMW M is headquartered.

Have a look at how deliciously wide the rear fenders are!

If you couldn’t already tell from the torrent of spy photos featured on the BIMMERPOST homepage, manufacturer testing season has opened on the Nurburgring.

On the track today was this F32 4 Series (435i) with M Sport package revealing for the first time the aggressive shape of the M Sport front bumper. Compared to the F30 3 Series M Sport front fascia, the 4 Series M Sport bumper is more angular, with air vents that angle upwards and expands as it gets closer to the outside of the front bumper. The side shot also shows that it incorporates splitter fins which extend quite far out, adding to the aggressive look.

The lighter camouflage also reveals what looks to be Air Curtain vents in the M Sport … CONTINUED

Have a look at the latest F33 4 Series convertible prototype, revealing more of its defining characteristic – its metal folding roof. Earlier spyshots (reposted below) show the hard top operation and the design is largely similar to the current E93 convertible.

The F33 will share the same engine and transmission options as the F32 coupe, as well as the coupe’s general styling. So, imagine the coupe that you’ve seen revealed, but with this metal folding top.

Production of the 4 Series convertible (both 435i and 428i) begins later this year – in November 2013.

We’ve given you live action looks of the M235i and 228i during winter testing, now have a look at the M235i coupe undergoing testing at the Nurburgring this week.

The M235i mule is seen in Estoril Blue II and shares its wheels, M Sport brakes, and double black exhaust pipes with the M135i hatchback. A trunk spoiler lip can also be seen clearly.

M235i and 228i coupe production begins in November. There will be no 235i model in the US or elsewhere, as the M235i will take its place in the lineup. The M235i will feature the same powerplant and mechanicals as the highly touted M135i hatchback [reviews].

We’ve also reposted below the first interior photos of the M235i, as well as some up-close photos of the exterior.

We have posted countless spy photos and videos of the upcoming BMW i8 hybrid sports car, but we’ve yet to spy it on an actual track… until now. BMW trotted this i8 mule out to the Nurburgring this week and we managed to capture it on the Nurburgring for the first time.

The i8 is expected to boast 354hp / 500Nm torque, 0-62 mph in approximately 4.6 seconds, top speed of 155mph, 78 MPG (european test cycle), up to 47 MPG average fuel consumption, with just 66kg/km emissions, all from its 1.5L three cylinder turbocharged petrol engine (in rear) with a 128hp electric motor (in front).

The i8 will hit the market next year and is expected to come in well above $100,000.

It’s been a busy test week for BMW at the Nurburgring, which includes some more testing on the F32 435i M Sport. Not much is revealed in these photos, but they provide more looks at how the 4 Series (F32) looks in motion.

This is a 435i M Sport in Estoril Blue II. The M Sport bumpers remain under camouflage. The headlights feature the optional full LED headlights with squared-off corona rings.

The M Sport brakes are fitted, but the M Sport wheels are not. See the wheels 4 Series lineup (from the 4 Series order guide) posted below for what the M Sport wheels will look like (as well as on the blue 4 Series spotted at the airport reposted below).
