2014 Dinan S1 BMW M5
Sep 04, 2014 - 6:03 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Aftermarket, Sedan, Performance, BMW, Luxury, Quick Spins



The last time the Dinan name graced the pages of Autoblog, Michael Harley was waxing poetic about the S3-R BMW 1M Coupe, a car that still stands in his ranks as one of the best cars he's ever driven. And that wasn't just because it was, you know, amazing. It's because as far as tuners go, Dinan produces some seriously well-executed products. Harley said of the 1M, for example, "It was so fully formed and well-rounded that it felt like BMW itself had made it."

Eager to sample some of these... [Read More]

BMW M2, we're happy to see you
Sep 03, 2014 - 8:31 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Spy Photos, Coupe, Performance, BMW, Luxury



I recently spent some time behind the wheel of the BMW M235i and, well, I didn't love it. Sure, it's a great car, but I just didn't truly bond with it the way I have with previous M cars. What I had hoped for was a proper successor to the 1 Series M Coupe I fell in love with in 2011, but what I got instead was just a sporty 2 Series that didn't exactly stir my emotions in the same way.

But now there's this: the honest-to-goodness BMW M2. Previously, spy photographers captured a development-mule M2, but this is the real thing, in its full prototype body. Notice the aggressive... [Read More]

M-thusiast pops the question at BMW Welt
Sep 02, 2014 - 5:02 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Etc., Videos, BMW



We've seen all manner of marriage proposals over the years, but our favorites, of course, revolve around cars. One guy proposed to his girlfriend at a traffic stop, another during an autocross event, while yet another got dozens of Mazda MX-5 owners together to spell "Marry Me?" in Miatas. This latest proposal, however, put the M in Marriage as only a BMW enthusiast could.

While visiting BMW Welt in Munich, Bachir from Lebanon... [Read More]

Behind the scenes of BMW's 'Driftmob' [w/videos]
Aug 26, 2014 - 8:13 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Marketing/Advertising, BMW, Luxury


All this, for one minute and 47 seconds of action-packed footage with no official plot.

We arrive in Cape Town, South Africa, on the third and final practice day for the drivers of a BMWStories internet video called The Epic Driftmob feat. BMW M235i. We are immediately whisked to a large, empty parking lot on the outskirts of Cape Town, where tires are squealing and chunks of rubber are flying as five red BMW M235i coupes churn up more smoke than a California wildfire. And the smell - it smells like heated metal, the kind of thing rev limiters are made for. Times five.

A couple dozen locals have lined up along a chain link fence, lured like moths to a flame by the sounds and scents... [Read More]

Formula E gets wireless-charging BMW i8 safety car [w/video]

Racing series typically select a safety car appropriate to the kinds of racecars for which they'll be setting the pace. So you might find a Mercedes SLS pacing a Formula One grand prix, for example, and you're more likely to find a BMW M4 on duty at a DTM race and a ... [Read More]

2014 BMW R NineT
Aug 26, 2014 - 4:21 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Performance, BMW, Motorcycle, First Ride



BMW is taking a page from the Harley-Davidson playbook with its groundbreaking R NineT. A retro cafe racer with an urban hooligan twist, the bike is fully customizable from fork to exhaust. Of course, any motorcycle can be customized, but the fact that BMW has built its newest bike to encourage modification using parts that can be swapped with simple tools is a radical move for a motorcycle maker best known for its plug-and-play touring bikes.

To underscore exactly how radical, BMW has even partnered with custom heavy-hitter Roland Sands Design, which developed the initial concept for the bike and is now manufacturing a full line of parts and accessories for the R NineT, including... [Read More]

Evo pits BMW M3 against Porsche Macan in drag battle
Aug 25, 2014 - 7:02 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Sedan, Performance, Videos, Crossover, BMW, Porsche, Luxury



If you want to move five passengers in very rapid fashion and you've got a $75,000 budget, two newly introduced four-door models immediately come to mind - both are the highest performing vehicles in their respective segments. But which is faster off the line, to the 60-mile-per-hour benchmark or flat-out over an even longer run? Evo took both to paved aircraft runway to find out.

In lane one we've got the all-new Porsche Macan Turbo, which boasts a twin-turbocharged, 3.6-liter V6 rated at 400 horsepower and 406... [Read More]

BMW 2 Series Active Tourer getting third row
Aug 24, 2014 - 4:29 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Spy Photos, Minivan/Van, BMW, Luxury



In what enthusiasts will likely see as a continued attempt to dilute the BMW brand, the German manufacturer is testing a three-row variant of its already controversial 2 Series Active Tourer. Our trusty spy photographers captured images of the new, front-drive MPV testing on the roads of Europe.

The easiest way to ID this more passenger friendly 2er is its slightly longer length, which will allow it to accommodate seven people in total. As our spies point out, this should make the 2AT an attractive proposition for European taxi companies. Yep, BMW built a car that will be praised by taxi drivers. On top of the extra seats, the rear overhang... [Read More]

Europe's BMW 1 Series hatch caught looking fresh faced
Aug 23, 2014 - 3:32 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Spy Photos, Hatchback, BMW



Hey, remember the BMW 1 Series? Yes, German brand's successors to the US-market coupe and convertible have one-upped the old car to wear the 2 Series designation now, but in other markets, our No. 1 crush still lives on, and as evidenced in these spy shots, the entry-level hatch appears to be undergoing a modest facelift.

We've spotted prototypes of the refreshed 1 Series before, with the majority of the car's changes focused around the front fascia. This time around, we're seeing the three-door variant, with wheels seemingly fitting of a Sport or even M Sport trim.

Of course, this One's not for US, as the small BMW isn't slated to come to our... [Read More]

2015 BMW M4 gets initiated into the club
Aug 22, 2014 - 8:42 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Videos, BMW



It's easy for enthusiasts and traditionalists to give BMW a hard time these days, what with its plans to add more front-wheel drive models and seeming move away from more emotionally connected cars. However, the push for perfection that underscored its old Ultimate Driving Machine motto is still in there, especially in its M models. In fact, the first M4 recently made it to US shores, and the company thought the only appropriate way to celebrate was to introduce its new coupe to some of its high-performance forefathers.

The M4's initiation... [Read More]
