    Video: BMW M5 Takes on Tesla Model S P100D in Acceleration Run

    The new BMW F90 M5 has been put through quite a number of tests so far ever since it was launched. The ‘new kid’ on the uber-sedan block has stirred up quite a lot of curiosity since it’s the first ever M car with all-wheel drive, excluding the already peculiar SUVs, of course. So far, the M5, in its standard guise – not the Competition model – managed to outrun all of its traditional rivals. The more powerful Competition version is supposed to be even faster off the line but what about a more non-conventional rival? Tesla cars have been repeatedly compared to BMWs over the last few years. I…

    BMW Motorrad to offer M Performance Parts for BMW S 1000 RR

    While BMW’s M Division is typically reserved for its cars, the BMW Motorrad is now offering M Performance parts for the BMW S 1000 RR motorcycle. For the first time ever, BMW M and BMW Motorrad will get a bit of a crossover.

    Video: Funny Infomercial Compares BMW 230i to Acura ILX

    I have always been fascinated by how some car makers decide to market their products. I’m referring especially to Japanese car makers with a visible footprint in the US, like Lexus or, in this case, Acura. The people from Acura decided to compare their new ILX model to the BMW 230i and the way they went about doing it is downright hilarious. I’ve seen other such attempts at shaming one car or another but this time, thing really flew off the handle. First of all, the video description and the ‘reviewer’, namely Bradley Hasemayer, call both cars ‘sedans’ when it’s pretty obvious to see that only one of them is…

    VIDEO: Carwow drives the BMW X4

    The BMW X4 is basically a more stylish X3. It’s the car you want if you need an SUV but don’t want to look like a square. You’re stylish, why would you want a normal SUV, like the rest of the squares in your neighborhood? You wouldn’t. So you buy the BMW X4. But are there any drawbacks to that coupe-like roofline? Carwow finds out. You’d think that the sloping roofline of the X4 would ruin its practicality as an SUV. However, it’s actually not much worse than the X3, in terms of both usable trunk space and rear passenger space. Is it as good as an X3? No, of…

    BMW G20 3 Series first time spotted with a manual transmission

    Thanks to our sister-magazine Bimmertoday, today, we bring you the first real life photos of the BMW G20 3 Series equipped with a manual transmission. What was the norm just a few years ago, now the manual transmission is a rarity in most BMWs and it has been replaced – across the board – by the eight-speed automatic. It is no coincidence that all the models shown at the world premiere in Paris were equipped with the eight-speed automatic transmission since most of the new G20 3 Series models will not be available with a six-speed gearbox. The 6-speed manual gearbox for the market launch is available only for the…

    wheel drive platform, dubbed FAAR, rather than the rear-drive platform of the current car. This has upset many enthusiasts. If you’re curious, though, the new 1 Series has been caught on a car carrier, wearing a lot of camouflage. (We don’t own the spy photos but they can be seen here) In these photos, we see some of the front end and a bit of the side profile of the car but the rest is wrapped in camo. At the front,its headlights don’t seem to be connected to the Kidney Grilles, which is good as that design is getting a bit tired. Though, there is still a lot of camo…
