F01 BMW 7 Series

Next generation of the BMW 7 Series could not have V12

Mixed feelings are going through our mind regarding this newest of announcements coming from BMW. I should point out it’s coming indirectly, but it’s from a BMW insider. BMW Australia’s pricing manager, Cristoph Priemel, is saying that the “home office” in Bavaria is rather split on what’s going to power [...]

BMW three cylinder engines are going to the United States

It has taken decades for car makers to convince the American buyer that relatively smaller engined cars from Europe have more than enough performance. They may not always come with a V8 but a six cylinder engine can be enough for most people. It took almost as much to talk [...]

F80 BMW M3 engine spied

Spyshots, spyshots everywhere. That’s how i feel whenever I see a mention of these vile images when the time comes for the release of a stunning new car. The F80 BMW M3 will probably be more than that but that’s beside the point, I still dislike seeing spyshots and would [...]

F30 BMW M4 Spied at the Ring

I hate spyshots, I really do. And it’s the same with videos. They go beyond teasing you. It’s like a naked woman is in front of you but some sort of weird censorship comes into play. That may be acceptable in some videos but it’s beyond what I can take [...]

The market for small sporty cars isn’t small these days. It may have been so about a decade ago but it’s definitely coming back. Trouble is, quantity doesn’t necessarily bring you to success. The really capable DNA of a great sports car of diminutive sizes is something tricky to create [...]
