We’ve updated our official thread for the BMW M6 Gran Coupe with a new set of wallpapers, guaranteed to cause drooling.
There’s been no indication from BMW nor any F81 M3 Touring prototypes spied, but we can always dream and imagine.
We’ll likely never see this car in real life, but here’s a glimpse at what such a unique machine might look like, taking cues from the spied F80 M3 Sedan prototypes.
For the latest F80 M3 and F82 M4 news and updates, follow along @ http://www.bimmerpost.com/m3/f30m3/
Hamann debuts their flashy and extremely shiny (chrome like) Mirr6r BMW M6 Coupe at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
The Hamanna Mirr6r M6 features a completely custom aero kit including, widebody front and rear vented fenders, custom front bumper with large air intakes and integrated spoiler lip, custom rear bumper with square intake outlets, sideskirts, high rear wing, carbon fiber Venturi diffuser, and vented carbon fiber hood.
The Hamann exhaust system features a push button selectable feature for a toned down note mode and an aggressive sound mode.

Hamann showcases its F10 M5 Mi5Sion at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, or what we think might be an M5
To say it’s a radical looking kit for the M5 would be an understatement. The Mi5Sion M5 receives widebody fenders that have added 30mm on each side. It has custom front and rear bumpers, carbon fiber trunk spoiler, door handles, and rear diffuser.
The interior features a contrasting black-white theme, with Alpine White and black leather seats to match the exterior and white trims throughout to continue the theme.

In terms of M cars at the 2013 Geneva show, BMW has brought out two M6 models – a Frozen Silverstone M6 Gran Coupe and a San Marino Blue M6 Convertible.
Unfortunately, there has been no sign of the F80 M3 concept, which many speculated may be making its debut here at the show. We’ve reported in the past that we believe (and still do) that the F80 M3 concept will instead bow in September at the Frankfurt Auto Show.
The 560 hp M6 Gran Coupe was revealed 3 months ago [official thread] and has been priced in the US starting at $113,000 [official pricing info].
It’s been a while since the last spotting of the F82 M4 Coupe, but it’s been worth the wait this sighting as the prototype has now lost some camouflage, revealing much more!
So, what revealing things do we see in this new sighting?
• Double slatted kidney grilles.
• LED headlights
• LED tail lights
• Sculpted double-bubble carbon fiber roof (a la M6 Coupe)
• Production side mirrors (but still under camouflage)
• Integrated trunk spoiler
• Deliciously wide rear stance
What about the F82 M4 mechanicals? If you recall, we recently reported on information gleamed from the M4 prototype’s registered VIN information (posted below).
The highlight is the 310kW (415 hp) S55 3.0L inline 6 engine listed [photos]. Consistent with the information we’ve been posting, this would have the next M3 and M4 … CONTINUED
On Saturday, February 16, 2013, the M Owners Club of Indonesia (MOCI) held one of their most exciting meet events in Jakarta. The. event was originally scheduled for last month, but due to heavy rain and flooding in some areas in Jakarta.
This newly scheduled event was held as a charity event, with the donations and proceeds going to help the flood affected areas. The event was joined by other car clubs as well, with owners of Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches, and other exotics in attendance and driving in the events.
M5POST member RPiM5 shares with us his direct experience after six months of F10 M5 ownership, compared to his time with the E60 M5 (his car prior to the F10 M5).
Best things about the E60 M5:
1. S85 V10 engine! (with aftermarket exhaust, there’s almost no equal to the exhaust note. This is even more true if you do aftermarket headers!)
2. Smaller size of E60
3. Lighter weight of E60
4. SMG Transmission (Almost no other transmission can rattle the fillings out of your teeth like S6 mode can!)
5. Adjustable Side Bolsters
6. Active Side Bolsters
7. The option for comfort seats rather than just sport seats.
Worst things about the E60 M5:
1. S85 V10 engine! (reliability!!!)
2. Reliability of everything else … CONTINUED
