BMW M4 Coupe laps 'Ring in 7:52, bests outgoing M3
Jun 19, 2014 - 7:42 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Coupe, Performance, BMW, Luxury



Comparing Nürburgring Nordschleife lap times is a bit of a black art, especially when looking at times officially set by manufacturers matched against other sources. Driver skill and weather conditions play a huge roll in determining a quality time. Still, it appears BMW fans have reason to celebrate because the new M4 Coupe beat the previous-generation M3 by 13 seconds in a recent test by Germany's Sport Auto magazine.

Sport Auto conducts what it calls the Supertest, where it runs performance cars around the 'Ring and the short... [Read More]

BMW looking to save billions with cost cuts
Jun 18, 2014 - 10:55 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: BMW, Earnings/Financials



BMW is planning a fairly extensive overhaul in a bid to recoup some its annual costs, with CEO Norbert Reithofer (pictured above) aiming to save three to four billion euro ($4 to $5.4 billion) per year to help keep the company's profit margins between eight and 10 percent, while also maintaining investments in production expansion and new tech. BMW's profit margins sat at 9.4 percent in 2013.

According to Automotive News Europe, Reithofer is none too pleased about costs at Mini and on the ... [Read More]

BMW and Mini getting GoPro integration
Jun 13, 2014 - 11:34 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Technology, BMW, Mini



The small, high-quality and relatively inexpensive GoPro camera has been revolutionary for Internet video, especially of cars. Imagine how much awesomeness and hilarity we would have missed without them. Finding ways to integrate the cams into performance cars is becoming increasingly popular among automakers, as well. For example, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette has its Performance Data Recorder, and Volkswagen is giving GoPros to early buyers of the ... [Read More]

BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe gets Bang & Olufsen Individual edition [w/video]
Jun 11, 2014 - 2:39 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Sedan, Performance, Videos, BMW, Specialty, Luxury



Not content with a bit part on the options sheet, high-end sound gets a starring role on the BMW Individual 6 Series Gran Coupe Bang & Olufsen Edition. There's no technical difference between the 1,200-watt, 16-speaker High End Surround Sound System in this run of 6 Series Gran Coupes and the $3,700 system you can order as an option on the standard Gran Coupe, but the special edition gets brushed black aluminum finish speaker grilles, a first for the range.

The packages and colors are what set these apart, exteriors available in either Brilliant White Metallic or Dark Graphite II Metallic, interiors possible in either black or Opal White and black. You'll also get upgrades like... [Read More]

BMW offers xDrive on 2015 2 Series
Jun 06, 2014 - 7:06 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Car Buying, BMW



BMW has released its mile-long list of model changes for 2015. It's mostly comprised of tiny tweaks to options packages, pricing or trim colors, but there are a few interesting new features in there too. One thing all buyers will notice is that as of July 1, the company's destination charge increases by $25, to $950 for all of its models.

The 2 Series gets two really useful upgrades for 2015. We already knew that BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive system would be offered on the M235i this summer. However, it won't be the only 2 capable of spinning all four wheels. The 228i model will also be available with the system for $34,850 (after destination), $1,800 more than the standard model.

The other... [Read More]

2015 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe
Jun 06, 2014 - 4:33 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Coupe, Sedan, Performance, BMW, Luxury, Quick Spins



It's hard to say what a coupe is anymore. Is it merely a car with two doors? Does it have to have an arching roofline? Do frameless windows count for anything? Can a five-door hatchback or even an SUV be a coupe? At some point in the last few years, nearly everything we thought made a coupe a coupe has been challenged by something that calls itself a coupe, but to most people isn't. Our friends at BMW have led most of this line of questioning.

The new 2015 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is one of the latest Bimmers to challenge the moniker (which also challenges the idea of "Gran,"... [Read More]

2015 BMW X6 stays the course with more power, RWD model
Jun 06, 2014 - 4:10 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Crossover, BMW, Luxury



What would this world be without the BMW X6? Oh, sure, the whole coupe-crossover design trend surely would have started somewhere, but BMW was the first, launching its odd duck back in 2008. Much as we like to harp on the X6 (for being less functional and more expensive than the X5 on which it's based), people around the world sure do seem to like the thing, BMW having sold some 250,000 examples since the CUV's birth. And as you first saw thanks to leaked images this morning, the second-generation X6 has just arrived.

The shape is familiar, as are specific styling elements like the larger headlamps (now available with a full-LED treatment) and taillamps, mimicking those found on the X5. Two trims are available - xLine and M... [Read More]

BMW almost ready to roll out new 2 Series cabriolet
Jun 05, 2014 - 6:24 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Spy Photos, Convertible, BMW, Luxury



The 2 Series is a relatively new member of the BMW family, having been spun off of the 1 Series (itself one of the company's youngest lines) just last year. So far the range has been split between the Active Tourer and the 2 Series Coupe, but soon the latter will breed a new compact convertible to take the place of the outgoing 1 Series cabriolet, and here we have our best look at it yet.

Spied with the most minimal camouflage and its top down while undergoing its final rounds of development testing, this pre-production 2 Series cabrio looks about ready for show time. While the Active Tourer is based on a different front-drive platform, this convertible is, as you might have guessed, essentially a 2... [Read More]

Upcoming new BMW X6 leaks out ahead of full reveal
Jun 05, 2014 - 3:12 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Crossover, BMW, Luxury



The X5 may have been the first BMW crossover on the market when it arrived in 2000, opening the door to more high-riding Bavarians to follow, but it's been replaced twice over now. The X3 is on its second generation, and with the X1 having been introduced in 2009 and the X4 soon to hit showrooms, that makes the X6 - introduced in 2008 - the oldest crossover in the BMW lineup. But it won't be for much longer.

Soon BMW will reveal the all-new X6, based on the latest X5 but with that tell-tale slanted roofline. But before it gets the chance, a handful of images have leaked their way all over the Internet to give us an advance look at what to... [Read More]

BMW 8 Series turns 25 [w/video]
Jun 04, 2014 - 10:36 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Classics, Coupe, Performance, Europe, Videos, BMW, Luxury



From the very beginning, the BMW 8 Series was a head turner. It was hardly a common sight in the first place, and the angular lines and low, pointed nose made the GT look like something special on the road. It's been 25 years since the Bavarian brand's flagship coupe of the '90s debuted, and owners celebrated the anniversary in style in Germany.

The 8 Series still looks great today, but its popup headlights give away its age a little. You just don't see them anymore. It was introduced at the 1989... [Read More]
