iND shares video and audio of their project F10 M5 with AMS catless downpipes matched to Eisenmann Race 4x102mm tips and Eisenmann center pipes.
The result sounds downright vicious!
Vivid Racing brings us a supercharged and action packed driving video featuring their project M3 shredding a dry lake bed. With nothing around for hundreds of miles, the roars of the V8 go ripping by at speeds of 100mph.
Petrolicious presents this video feature on a BMW E30 M3.
There are no substitutes for an E30 M3, and for Gabor Mester, no ordinary M3 would cut it. Gabor had his heart set on the specific M3 that started him down the path of BMW: a car that belonged to the parents of a childhood friend. Walking through his friend’s garage one day and spotting this M3 instantly turned teenage Gabor into a car guy, who from that day forward took every possible opportunity to see and even wash the car. The dream of owning those ’80s flares, boxy lines, and a screaming S14 came true after many years (and a bit of convincing) when the car was ready to be handed to the next generation … CONTINUED
Some drag races between a F13 M6 Coupe and some formidable competition: the R35 GTR, Porsche turbo, X6M and R34 GTR.
Upcoming 2014 BMW models will be available with the new iDrive Touch system, which features a touch sensitive controller knob for a whole new way of input. Instead of having to scroll for letter input, users can now write letters on the surface of the iDrive knob.
This new written input method can be used anywhere where a speller wheel is needed: navigation, multimedia search, contact search, phone numbers, etc.
It also accepts gestures for such actions as zooming in and out on a map.
Check out a demo below.
BMW i will soon launch its very first production model when it introduces the production BMW i3 within the next few months.
This set of videos explain much about the philosophies and technologies behind the BMW i3 (and i8), as well as BMW’s commitment and investment in mass producing carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), which will eventually be used extensively in regular BMW models, such as the next gen 2016 7 Series (G11).
It’s always interesting to hear the history of the BMW M3 rehashed, but even more fun when you get to see them all together. Even more than that, we get to hear and see them all being driven in this recap of the BMW M3′s evolution, from E30 to E36 to E46 to the E90.
BWS Motorsports’ Marc Norris takes us through the generations.
P.S., if you’re interested, here’s a chart comparing the technical specs of all M3 generations [tech specs chart].
ZPOST member Asbjorn shares with us his China road trip in his tuned BMW Z4 sDrive35i:
Dear Bimmerpost members
Below are some pictures and highlights from a recent 4000km road trip I completed here in China. The trip went from the sea-side city of Qingdao in the east, to the most populous city in western China, mountainous Chongqing. It is also the two cities I have come to love the most while living in mainland China as a foreigner.
So the trip went from Qingdao to Chongqing. In China Qingdao is famous for it’s Tsingtao beer and Chongqing is famous for its beautiful people, spicy food and for being the most populous municipality in China (29 million with 16 inside the city core). The driving distance is … CONTINUED
Earlier this week, we attended the US media launch for the 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe [official thread]. The M6 Gran Coupe features the same 560hp / 500 kb-ft powerplant as the M5 and M6 Coupe/Convertible and covers 0-60mph in 4.1 seconds. It starts in the U.S. at a base price of $113,000 for the 2014 model year [full pricing details].
The event was held in Austin, TX at the impressive Circuit of the America (COTA) Formula 1 race track. We’ll be sharing our thoughts on the M6 Gran Coupe soon, but for now, have a gander at the various sights from Austin. Below, you’ll see photos of the fleet of M6 Gran Coupes on hand for both track and road evaluation. Until now, BMW has … CONTINUED
