BMW M5 arrives in Monterey packing 600 hp and matte paint
Aug 16, 2014 - 6:27 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Sedan, Performance, BMW



What's a sure-fire way to make a vehicle better? Well, you can add power or make it more exclusive. BMW has done both, just in time to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the legendary M5 sedan.

Only 300 examples of the car you see above, the M5 30th Anniversary Edition, will be sold to the public, and those lucky owners will enjoy the most exclusive, most powerful M5 ever made. Power continues to flow from the standard M5's twin-turbocharged, 4.4-liter V8, which has had its wick turned up to 600 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. The sprint to 60 now happens in just 3.7 seconds, which is still a scarcely fathomable speed among sports cars, let alone... [Read More]

VW Golf R pitted against BMW M235i in enthusiast's choice battle
Aug 16, 2014 - 6:27 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Videos, Hatchback, BMW, Volkswagen



Most people don't have two, open spots in their garage to fit a practical daily driver and a fire-breathing performance car for the weekends. That's what makes vehicles like the latest Volkswagen Golf R and BMW M235i just about perfect for the average person. Both of these Germans can lope around as a commuter 90 percent of the time and be perfectly comfortable. However, when you want to walk in the door with a big smile on your face, you can take the back roads home and get a real... [Read More]

BMW i8 Concours d'Elegance Edition is so cool it's Frozen
Aug 15, 2014 - 10:57 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Coupe, Hybrid, Performance, BMW, Luxury



The new, one-of-a-kind BMW i8 Concours d'Elegance Edition made a ritzy debut last night at BMW's private villa, giving the media its first chance to look at the ultra-exclusive hybrid.

As we said in our previous post, the most notable feature of the Concours d'Elegance i8 is its matte grey paint, known as Frozen Grey Metallic in BMW parlance. This isn't the first time we've seen this shade on an exclusive BMW, as it was last used for the ... [Read More]

BMW maintenance plan no longer transferrable to 2nd owner
Aug 12, 2014 - 7:47 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Car Buying, Maintenance, BMW, Luxury



One of the best innovations in car buying in recent years is the rise of no-cost scheduled maintenance programs. Many people feel really anxious about taking their car in for service, and these deals help mitigate that somewhat. Obviously, it's not free for automakers to implement the offers, and now BMW is altering the way its four-year, 50,000-mile Maintenance Program works for some owners. "To keep such an offer sustainable we had to make a change," said Kenn Sparks, Manager of Business Communications at BMW North America, to Autoblog via email.

The original person to buy or lease the model isn't going to see any difference, but the program is no longer... [Read More]

BMW reveals i8 Concours d'Elegance Edition ahead of Pebble Beach
Aug 11, 2014 - 3:10 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Coupe, Hybrid, Auctions, BMW, Misc. Auto Shows



If you want to be among the first owners in the United States of the new BMW i8, the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance will be the place to be next Saturday. That's where Gooding & Company will auction off this one-of-a-kind hybrid supercar.

The BMW i8 Concours d'Elegance Edition was previously slated to be the very first i8 in North America, but has now apparently been downgraded to the guarantee of being among the firsts. In any event, it packs a series of special touches to make... [Read More]

2016 BMW X1 will be second model on company's front-drive platform
Aug 09, 2014 - 2:35 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Crossover, BMW, Design/Style, Luxury



BMW is putting a lot of its chips on the success of its forthcoming front-wheel drive models, and it's making a big bet on the company's future in hoping that customers will accept them. Its front-driving UKL platform is underpinning not just the current crop of Minis but a host of BMW vehicles too. The rollout starts with the 2 Series Active Tourer in Europe later this year. But the Bavarian brand confirms to Automotive News Europe that the next one is the X1 crossover, ... [Read More]

BMW X4 reclaims dash of utility with Clemson student project [w/videos]
Aug 06, 2014 - 2:09 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Aftermarket, Concept Cars, Truck, Videos, Crossover, BMW, Design/Style



BMW seems willing to exploit every automotive niche it can find with creations like the four-door, 'crossover coupe' X4 and X6. Of course, these designs come with a compromise. That svelte fastback means that they just can't haul as much cargo as a more traditional, boxier hatchback. Fortunately, students at Clemson University's International Center for Automotive...

BMW X4 M40i spotted testing in Germany
Aug 04, 2014 - 11:20 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Spy Photos, Performance, Crossover, BMW



The stream of segment-busting BMW variants is showing no signs of letting up, and with the latest addition now upon us, questions have been circulating as to whether the Bavarian automaker would do an M version of the new X4 crossover. The jury may still be out on that proposition, but the latest intel suggests that, while a full-on X4 M may not be in the cards, a next-best-thing X4 M40i is in the works. And that appears to be what we're looking at in this fresh batch of spy shots.

Spotted for the first time undergoing testing in Germany, this X4 is tipped to be the next addition to the M Performance line that's already given us near-boiling models like the M135i and ... [Read More]

Xcar checks if BMW's i8 offers moves as electrifying as its looks
Aug 03, 2014 - 5:47 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Coupe, Hybrid, Videos, BMW



If you were to plot the general opinion about hybrids since their introduction among auto enthusiasts, the resulting graph would likely be shaped somewhat like a "V." In the beginning interest was high, simply due the novelty of these new powertrains, then the line would gradually fall as the models got the stereotype of being boring commuters. Today, though, things might be back on the upswing. Vehicles like the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 and BMW i8 are showing that a hybrid doesn't have to be synonymous for dull. In its latest video, Xcar Films aims to... [Read More]

BMW 6 Series Convertible gets a little work done for 2015
Aug 03, 2014 - 12:03 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Spy Photos, Convertible, BMW, Luxury



Truth be told, I've never really found the modern BMW 6 Series to be a particularly attractive car, in Coupe, Convertible, or sedan Gran Coupe forms. This current generation certainly looks a whole lot better than the Bangle-fied Six that came before it to my eyes, but on the whole, I find much of the car's design to be fussy and awkward. There's a new 6 Series on the way, scheduled to arrive sometime in 2017 or 2018, but to hold us over until then, BMW is freshening its current range, as evidenced by this convertible prototype our trusty spies recently caught testing.

Will the changes to the current 6 Series be an improvement? Perhaps. Up front, there are restyled headlamps and a new front bumper, and at the rear, BMW has... [Read More]
