The BMW X5 M, like many other BMWs these days, is undergoing its Life Cycle Impulse, popularly known as a facelift outside of Bavaria. Unofficial graphics based on recent spy images captured just outside of Munich were used by our Kolesa buddies to try to estimate what it will look like.
The front fascia, featuring the enormous bucktooth grille, will be largely identical to the M3 and M4. The picture is completed by quad exhaust pipes and larger wheels.
This one is for all BMW fanboys and fangirls out there! We’ve got our hands on the all-new M5 CS, which will compete with the M8 Gran…
The BMW M5 CS is widely recognized as one of the best products ever to emerge from BMW’s M Division’s expert hands. In recent generations, the BMW M5 has become softer and more luxury, drawing criticism from aficionados.
A drag race between the AWD-equipped M3 and the i4 M50 is seen in a new video posted to their YouTube account. On paper, the gas-powered sedan should be far faster than its electric in-house competitor.
In a new video posted to their YouTube Archie Hamilton Racing account, the AWD-equipped M3 and the i4 M50 compete in a drag race. On paper, the gasoline-powered car should outrun its electric in-house rival.
It should come as no surprise that the X4 M Competition is lightning fast, thanks to its twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine with 503 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. The BMW X4 M truly drives like a sports car on stilts, as you’ve surely heard before.
Is it a smart idea to drive a BMW M3 Competition xDrive on a daily basis? In most cases, the response is a resounding “Yes.” That’s because the M3’s entire goal is to be drivable on a daily basis. That wasn’t the case when the BMW M3 was first debuted, with the E30 generation.
The BMW i4 M50 and Porsche Taycan go head-to-head in this new video from Autocar. The BMW i4 M50 is, without a doubt, at a significant disadvantage in this comparison straight from the start.
We were promised Level 3 autonomous features when BMW first launched the iX, but those enhancements were put back. However, the BMW iX will gain the so-called Parking Assistant Professional feature for the first time in March, which will be a step in the right direction.
The BMW 8 Series was reborn for 2018, and now it’s time for a midlife update. The BMW 8 Series Coupe, Convertible, and Gran Coupe for 2023 have been revealed for the first time today. Keep in mind that the modifications are minor because this is a refresh rather than a comprehensive overhaul. Under the hood, nothing has changed.
According to the source, the current BMW 4 Series and 8 Series cars will be merged into a new, or older, BMW 6 Series family, depending on how you look at it. The iconic brand is expected to make a comeback in 2026, with a new line of cars based on the Neue Klasse platform.
