In case you wanted to boost the performance of your powerful BMW X5 and were wondering where to take it, Superchips tuning company from the United Kingdom got its hands on the BMW X5 3.0D and decided to offer increased performance for it via an ECU remapping.
We’ve had a glimpse ourselves and have come up with our own ideas.
The German automobile maker have typically done a very good job of over-engineering their machines and making them far too complicated- the much maligned I-Drive being a case in point.
For the new 5 series range, BMW seem to have gone back to basics with a range that is simply better. Better how you ask?
For one, the new series looks better. BM has smoothed down the some of the harsher angles and elements from the previous iteration. The result is a machine that is much easier on the eye, including removing the raised trunk lid. It’s still going be a divisive design however.
As the description of the video says: BMW unscripted is a series about people, talking about their life, passion and joy with the brand BMW. His name is Murray Fowler, he lives in Costa Mesa, California and is 81 years old. Most of his life was spent behind the steering wheel of a BMW, most exactly, the BMW 2800 CS with over 400,000 miles on board.
This video created by BMW reveals the passion and the joy spent of the owner spent over so many years with BMW. We can see that the German manufacturer releases another series of spots showing the passion between a BMW model and an owner.
When one hears about the Onyx Concept tuning company, Range Rover will most probably come to mind, or more recently Bentley or Porsche. But the company will be adding yet another car manufacturer to it’s belt with the addition of a tuning kit (both for performance and for aesthetics) designed for the BMW M3 E92.
After we heard about the BMW’s M3 Tiger special edition dedicated to the Chinese market, the German manufacturer revealed some artistic photos that may be part of the BMW Joy campaign. Anyway, the special edition dedicated to the Chinese market, the M3 Tiger, comes with a special color, Fire Orange Metallic, found on the better known GTS version of the model.
BMW celebrates 25 years of existence for the M3 model and this is an anniversary version dedicated just to the Chinese market. BMW M3 Tiger benefits from the special bodypaint, as I told you below, but also from 19-inch wheels, orange stitches at the interior and black Novilla leather.
The BMW’s Sports Activity Coupe, X6, is enjoying another tuning kit, this time, the tuning kit regards just the visual appearance, no performance changes were made by the Germans at ENCO Exclusive. Looking closely you’ll see that this kit might be inspired from the M version of the German model but be sure that the model stands out also by exclusive features.
As you see at a glance, the model got a two-color bodypaint, blending the metallic grey used on the bumpers and sides with the matte black used for the hood, roof, side mirrors and door handles. Black aluminium Enco-Jura rims with a size of 23-inch were used, the rims coming with a grey circle line contrasting with the metallic grey used on the body.
True Bliss Customs seem to have been hooked by the Matte Black paint as well as other car tuning companies, since they decided to make such a version for their own models, this time being BMW M3 Coupe.
German tuners at Lumma Design together with the TopCar Russian tuners managed to create another tuning kit for the German model BMW 5 Series F10. The tuners mounted a carbon fiber hood, new side sills, a front bumper with air intakes and LED lights, a new set of rims, a rear bumper integrating an air diffuser and a spoiler mounted on the trunk.
The taillights, the windows and the windscreen received a black tint completing the exterior visual improvements brought to the German model. Under the hood, the 5 Series F10 received the 3.0-liter Twin Turbo 535i-based engine managing to deliver a total of 380 horsepower.
Earlier we talked about the partial unveiling of the BMW 1 Series M Coupe. Since then, more info has been surfacing regarding the car’s specs so we’re here again to bring you the news. There are some good news and some bad (depending on your tastes): the good news is that the 1 Series M Coupe wants to bring an old-school feeling and the bad news (for some) is that it will only sport a manual transmission.
A new video teaser for the BMW 1 Series Coupe appeared on the Internet, on BMW’s official YouTube channel and on BMW.tv. This is the second video teaser created by people at BMW, after few weeks ago we saw the M performance version of the BMW’s little 1 Series Coupe running on the Ascari track in Spain.
This time, the M division model isn’t presented on a race track, the prototype being mostly covered. Even so, we can see a part of the front optical blocks, a little of the front spoiler, the rims and also the exhaust system shape.
