BMW names new head of M division
Sep 24, 2014 - 8:53 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Performance, Hirings/Firings/Layoffs, BMW

BMW's performance division has been run by Dr. Friedrich Nitschke since 2011, developing, among other products, the new M3 and M4. But soon the good doctor will be retiring, and BMW has just named his successor.

Taking Nitschke's place as chairman of BMW M GmbH will be Franciscus van Meel (pictured at right), who until recently served as managing director of Audi Quattro GmbH - the rival outfit that makes Ingolstadt's performance models, including the R8 supercar and RS line of performance models.

Van Meel will join BMW on October 1, presumably to learn... [Read More]

2015 BMW i8 configurator is ready to show the future
Sep 22, 2014 - 11:24 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Car Buying, Coupe, Hybrid, BMW



Good news if you're one of the lucky few that can afford the new BMW i8. The high-performance hybrid's configurator has gone live on BMW USA's consumer website, meaning you can head in and customize till you drop.

If you've ever played with a BMW configurator, you'll instantly feel at home with the i8's. You have the choice of four trim packages (your author refuses to use BMW's pretentious "World" trim names), followed by wheel and exterior paint options. The interior choices are fixed to the trim level, so aside from trim, color and the choice of two wheel options, there isn't a lot to pick out on the i8.

Head on over and take a look.... [Read More]

BMW X5 driver repeatedly fails to understand big rig braking distances
Sep 20, 2014 - 2:29 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: SUV, Etc., Safety, Videos, Crossover, BMW, Russia, Luxury



Nobody should be shocked that a big, heavy vehicle like a semi truck takes a longer distance to stop than the average passenger car; it's just basic physics. However, this BMW X5 driver seemingly has a major problem grasping the concept, and it results in some serious damage to the back of his SUV.

The whole incident is very confusing to watch. The BMW doesn't even seem to have a reason to slow down before the semi slams into the back of it at fairly high speed.... [Read More]

Evo takes flight in BMW's sultry i8
Sep 15, 2014 - 7:47 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Coupe, Hybrid, Performance, Technology, Videos, BMW, Electric



Electric cars and hybrids are here to stay, much to the apparent dismay of some auto enthusiasts, but that doesn't mean they have to represent the death of enjoyable driving. Granted, the initial run of hybrids in the US like the Honda Insight and Toyota Prius weren't exactly tailor-made for aggressive folks behind the wheel, but things are clearly changing. In its latest video, ... [Read More]

Are you a BMW M4 GTS track car in disguise?
Sep 11, 2014 - 12:45 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Spy Photos, Coupe, Performance, BMW



BMW is always happy to extract a little bit more gumption out of its M cars, just look at the latest 30th anniversary M5 or even the earlier CSL variants of the M3 for proof. Now, It looks like we might be getting the first glimpse of an even hotter M4, and it's wearing very interesting livery.

Our spies recently shot this M4 that could preview a future GTS version. It's all done up in MotoGP... [Read More]

2015 BMW 2 Series Convertible will flip its lid for $38,850
Sep 09, 2014 - 11:20 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Convertible, Performance, BMW, Luxury


For the most part, they look almost identical to their coupe versions, except that they now boast an electrically folding soft top.

BMW is dropping the top of the 2 Series in early 2015 in the US with convertible versions of the 228i and M235i. They'll make their world debut at the Paris Motor Show later this year and will show their faces on this side of the pond at the 2014 Los Angeles International Auto Show.

Aesthetically, you're getting exactly what you'd expect from the 2 Series... [Read More]

BMW 1 Series sedan prepares to fight Mercedes CLA, Audi A3
Sep 05, 2014 - 7:56 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Spy Photos, Sedan, BMW, Luxury



The entry-level premium sedan segment is pretty hot right now, with the Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class doing well for their respective automakers here in the US. Of course, BMW has its 2 Series, but that's currently only available as a coupe, with a convertible bodystyle forthcoming. That all looks to change, however, as our spies recently caught BMW testing a four-door 1 Series sedan that seems to have the A3 and CLA clear in its sight.

BMW's entry-level four-door is expected to ride on the same front-wheel-drive UKL platform that we ... [Read More]

BMW takes 30th Anniversary Edition M5 out to drift
Sep 04, 2014 - 9:42 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Sedan, Performance, Videos, BMW



If you only look at the videos from BMW, it appears that the best way to celebrate the 30th birthday of the M5 is some smoky drifting, and it sure looks like a great way to mark the occasion to us. Now that the Bavarian brand's new 30th anniversary special edition is all set to hit the road, the most powerful M5 ever is getting it own chance to roast its tires on video, as well.

The M5 30th Anniversary Edition shouldn't have any problem... [Read More]

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]
