New 2021 BMW 2 Series Active Tourer testing on the Nurburgring

The 2 Series Active Tourer is going to have several quality attributes of its own. Its headlights are sleek and sharp, its grille isn’t the size of the 4 Series’ and its overall shape is more big-hatchback than small-minivan. It’s also going to be spacious, practical and comfortable, just as its predecessor was. Check this out new spy photos.

SPIED: BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe Seen Testing Again

The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is the only variant of the 4 Series yet to be revealed. The new 4 Series as a whole features drastically different styling from its 3 Series sibling, so the new Gran Coupe will look like a very different car. While the 4 Series Gran Coupe is going to be a good-looking car overall, there are going to be fans and customers that have a hard time getting over the new grille design.

SPIED: Potential BMW i4 M50 Prototype Seen Testing in Camouflage

In these new photos, we see a test mule prototype of what very well may be the upcoming BMW i4 M50, the performance version that will get tuned by the M Division. They're clearly from the M Division parts bin, as they're the same side mirrors that you'll find on the new BMW M3 and M4. Since BMW only uses such mirrors on proper M cars and not M Performance cars, it's likely that this is the i4 M50.



2020 BMW M8 Competition Coupe Review

4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 good for 617 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, 0-60 mph is 3.0 seconds. Top speed is as much as 190 mph, assuming you pick the M Driver’s Package and in return for $2,500 unlock the standard 156 mph limiters. Do you need to add anything more?

Video: The Stig drifts the brilliant BMW M2 CS

If there's anything we can all agree on this year - which was filled with incredible events - it is that the BMW M2 CS is the best product to come from Bavaria in a long time. The BMW M2 CS is a refined product, the kind German carmakers like to make.

VIDEO: Is the BMW M550i Actually Better Than the BMW M5?

While F90-gen BMW M5 is almost a perfect all-rounder, the less expensive M550i might be even better to some fans. The BMW M5 is obviously still the more exciting, more fun and much faster car, while still being comfortable enough to drive every day. If you prioritize comfort more than outright agility and would prefer something that's a bit more refined than athletic, the BMW M550i actually is the better option.

BMW M4 Brakes Hard From 174 MPH To Avoid Crashing Into Mazda

According to the video's description, the M4 slowed down from 174 mph to 87 mph in about three seconds, fast enough to avoid slamming into the brown hatchback. The car's ABS and tires also helped avoid what would've probably been a nasty accident, and the M4 driver's reaction saved the day as well.


Drag Races

Video: 1,000 HP BMW M5 vs 800 HP RS3 and 911 Turbo S drag race

Today we're taking a look at a drag race for the ages, featuring the newest Porsche 911 Turbo S, a heavily tuned Audi RS3 and an even more powerful BMW M5. All three of these cars are capable of mind-bending speeds in the literal blink of an eye and this is shaping up to be quite an interesting watch.

The latest model has a 3.8-liter flat six turbo engines capable of delivering 650 HP and 800 Nm of torque to all four wheels, via its ultra-fast 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox.



VIDEO: E90 BMW M3 with Eisenmann Exhaust Reminds Us Why It’s the Best

This video of an E90 BMW M3 with an Eisenmann exhaust reminds us of why it's the best sounding M3 of all time and how far even the best sounding M3s have fallen since. Powering the E90 BMW M3 is a 4.0 liter naturally-aspirated V8 that makes the most sensational of noises. The E90 BMW M3 in this video has none of that; it's just a pure, unfiltered V8 song, and it's glorious.

Video: BMW M2 CS crowned Evo Car of the Year 2020

It looks like the BMW M2 CS and its accolades just keep rolling in. The BMW was crowned Evo Car of the Year, and it did so in spectacular fashion, beating incredibly tough competitors along the way. BMW M2 CS won the affair by beating the McLaren 765LT and Lamborghini Huracán Evo RWD in the process, the two cars that completed the podium.

BMW Will Publicly Shame Out-of-Warranty Drivers with Smart Billboards and License Plate Readers

New smart billboards in the United Kingdom will read BMW owners' license plates and broadcast to the world if they think your BMW's warranty has expired, reports Motoring Research. Per Motoring Research, the message could note their expired warranty, warn them that their repair costs are no longer covered and told to "Consider purchasing a BMW Insured warranty online," though BMW has since denied that approach and instead says the ads will be more generic in tone.

The M5 CS is official, and BMW provides details before a full reveal in January

BMW teased it on the company's M Instagram page, showing us a few peeks behind the curtain and announcing some key specs. Just like the past few CS models from BMW M, this one gains a bit of power, drops weight and gets more hardcore in a number of ways. BMW managed to drop 154 pounds from the car's curb weight, which will likely be the most noticeable source of change when driving - it goes from 4,345 pounds to 4,191 for the CS.

BMW M2 CSL Turbomeister Edition Has 2002 Hommage Concept Inspired Looks And 513 HP

Unofficially named the M2 CSL Turbomeister Edition, it is a privately owned car that has been comprehensively modified. What new? A full suspension kit from AST was installed, while the front brakes discs were replaced by smaller offerings from Nashin that keep the six-pot calipers in place. This move alone has allowed the car to shed 16 kg (35 lbs), and all the mods resulted in a total weight reduction of more than 110 kg (243 lbs). 

Thanks for being here. Happy New Year!!!!
