Spy shots have revealed that the M3 Touring will arrive with the M3 sedan’s big, bold grille and sharp-edged front-end design. The unofficial rendering doesn’t show off the rear, though we’ve already seen much of it in the company’s first teaser.
We’ve just learned that the BMW M4 CSL could be limited to just 1,000 units worldwide. It seems like we can’t go a day without new M4 CSL spy photos popping up. In these new photos, the M4 CSL test mule is heavily covered in camouflage, but that doesn’t stop us from understanding what sort of visual differences it will have.
We weren’t sent any photos of the interior, but we know the refreshed X7 will get a revamped cabin featuring a curved dual-screen incorporating a digital instrument cluster and infotainment system, just like the i4 and iX. The facelifted BMW X7 is expected to debut next year, and the Alpina version should arrive shortly after.
How Differently Are The Cars Tuned And Customized?BMW M140i The BMW M140i is powered by a 3.0-liter, six-cylinder turbocharged engine that makes around 340 horses in stock form. Next in line is a BMW M2. This is also powered by a 3.0-liter, turbocharged six-cylinder mill that makes 410 ponies in the standard form. BMW M3 Competition The final contender is the M3 Competition that churns out 503 horses from the same 3.0-liter six-pot turbo mill.
The guys from MotorWeek took one such glorious drop top out for a spin and were matched with the M Performance model, the M440i. The M440i comes with a 3.0 liter straight-six engine good for 382 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque.
A few years ago, BMW debuted a 2002 Hommage Turbomeister Concept. It was, essentially, just a fancier looking BMW M2 with some concept looking headlights and a “Turbomeister” livery that was designed to evoke images of the old Jägermeister liveried race cars. Marc Rutten, BMWBLOG contributor and BMW fan, decided to turn an M2 Competition into the Turbomeister concept car and Joe Achilles had the chance to drive it, in his latest video.
A lot of people turn their cars into projects worth tens of thousands of dollars. The German tuner has been working on BMWs for over 40 years. They have been at the forefront of tuning for decades and show no signs of stopping. One of the main advantages a tune from AC Schnitzer brings to the table is the possibility of enhancing your car’s performance without losing the warranty.
The vehicle from the video is a 330e wagon, and it hits the Autobahn for a top speed check. There’s measuring equipment that helps us compare the numbers from the instrument cluster with the actual GPS-based numbers.
The compact luxury MPV gets a giant kidney grille sending strong X7 vibes and flanked by sleeker LED headlights optionally available with adaptive matrix tech. The profile reveals newly designed flush door handles and lower side mirrors to aid aero, while wheel size varies from 16 to 19 inches.
For over five decades since the introduction of the BMW 1602 Elektro-Antrieb, BMW has steadily gained balance in creating hybrid plug-in and all-electric zero-emission vehicles. In 2011, BMW introduced its sub-brand-the BMW i-which uses ‘i’ technology to build BMW’s electrified models, seven of which are already in circulation.
According to BimmerToday, BMW is removing the Head-Up Display option from many of its models in Germany due to the semiconductor shortage. In Germany, for example, the November 2021 ordering guide lists the 3 Series with no Head-Up Display option.
