    Video: BMW M2 Review Includes Mandatory E46 M3 Comparison

    In a recent interview, a high-ranking BMW executive actually exclaimed that he’s tired of hearing people comparing new BMWs to the old ones. He was referring especially to the E46 M3 model which is still very highly regarded among enthusiasts. Maybe this is a clear case of past success haunting a company but the fact is, to this day, that car remains a reference point in the brand’s history. It was so good, everything new the M division brings out, somehow gets compared to it and that’s the case with the M2 as well. When the M2 came out, everyone rushed to make the rather obvious comparison to the E46…

    Video: BMW M5 Exhaust Sound Comparison vs Competition and Akrapovic Models

    Something a lot of people had a problem with when the F10 M5 came out was the sound the S63 engine made and that hasn’t changed at all throughout its production span. Now that the new F90 M5 is out and using a revised version of the same engine some are wondering how it sounds, compared to its predecessor. Of course, those who haven’t seen or heard one in real life would be the most curious but we’re also interested in hearing the difference between the standard model and the Competition one. BMW says that the M5 Competition has a Sports exhaust, which would mean that the two versions of…

    BMW X4 M40i Gets 420 HP and Dark Theme from Dahler

    The guys from Dahler decided that the newly launched BMW X4 in its M40i guise could use a bit more power. Seeing just how powerful the B58Tu1 engine is these days, the guys wanted to one up the BMW engineers and take things up a notch. Their take on the BMW X4 M40i now comes with up to 420 HP and 630 Nm (465 lb-ft) of torque, numbers almost worthy of the M badge. As a matter of fact, they are probably close to what the upcoming full-on M model might bring to the table. The Swiss tuner gave the M40i some 60 extra horses so a couple more alterations…

    G81 BMW M3 Touring rendered and we need it

    Just recently, we learned that BMW was actually considering an M3 wagon for this latest G80-generation. While nothing has been confirmed, nor has anything been greenlit, Autocar recently reported that some of the top brass in Bavaria were considering a long-roof BMW M3. So designer Tobias Büttner rendered one up (seen here). This new render shows off what a potential G81 BMW M3 Touring would look like and we need one. BMW has yet to officially reveal the 3 Series Touring just yet but we’ve seen enough spy photos to know that this render is relatively accurate to what one will look like. So if you throw in some traditional…

    VIDEO: Watch Carwow’s BMW M3 Generations Drag Race in 360-degrees

    A little while back, Carwow did a drag race between some of the generations of BMW M3. The race featured the F80 BMW M3 CS, the E92 BMW M3 GTS, the E46 BMW M3 CSL and the E30 BMW M3. The only M3 generation left out was the E36 but, let’s face it, it’s not as good as these four cars. Admittedly, we spoke about this drag race back when Carwow first posted it. Now, though, they’ve re-posted the video in 360-degrees, which allows you to see the race from an even cooler angle. The 360-degree camera was mounted to the top of the E46 M3 CSL, so we get…

    BMW X2 is a contender on Motor Trend’s SUV Of The Year Award

    BMW’s quirkiest SUV to date – the BMW X2 – has made it on the Motor Trend’s SUV Of The Year contender list. The US car magazine says that it uses six key criteria to rate the contenders, but they acknowledge that performs usually is the one they focus mostly on. On the plus side, Motor Trend says that the X2 looks stylish and it’s fun to drive, while the downsides seem to be the harsh ride, high price tag and lack of space. “The X2 is clearly and unequivocally focused on looking good and being fun to drive, and even its strengths were points of contention.
