PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 BMW Z4

After a lot of controversy over nameplate usage, BMW finally debuted the 2019 BMW Z4. To make matters a little better, the first one we got to lay eyes on was the M40i trim level that you see here. Powered by a 3.0-liter inline-six, it pumps out some 340 horsepower and can make a dedicated run to 60-mph in 4.6 seconds. It’s just not performance that matters, though, as the new Z4 is actually quite attractive. It has some of the concept’s DNA all mashed together with some 8 Series DNA too. And, since we haven’t given it any love lately, we figured why not pick out our favorite Z4 wallpaper and share it with you as our wallpaper of the day. Even better yet, if you don’t like our favorite, there’s a whole bunch more in the gallery below. Take any that you like and give the Z4 some of that good ol’ enthusiast love that it deserves!

PostHeaderIcon 2019 BMW 3-Series Review Roundup: Does it Get the Class Crown?

Journalists have tried out the all-new, seventh-gen, 2019 BMW 3-Series G20 at its official launch event in Portugal, and first impressions of the car are really good. You’d expect BMW to want to pull out all the stops in order to get its smallest and most popular sedan right and, apparently, it did.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M5 Touring F11 By Carbonfiber Dynamics

I’ve wondered for long – what the heck is a sleeper? Can any of the modern performance-laden cars be sleepers? I think it’s possible, but only if you inject it with a proper amount of power. This time I am referring to a rather unusual entry in the world of modified cars – the Carbonfiber Dynamics BMW M5 Estate – an Estate with a power greater than that of a Porsche 918
Spyder.
Yup, this BMW M5 Estate has an engine under its bonnet with 900 horsepower.

The Germans! What can I say!?

PostHeaderIcon Rumors of a 2020 BMW X8 Swirl Yet Again, Could Be An Ultra-Luxurious SUV

BMW just introduced the new 8 Series earlier this year, and in doing so, resurrected the 8 Series nameplate after roughly two decades on the shelf. Fans already adore the new luxury-laden grand tourer, but now it’s looking like BMW might apply some of its 8’er gloss to its SUV line as well.

PostHeaderIcon The Next Generation of BMWs Will Have Their Own Distinct Design

Following in the footsteps of Audi and Mercedes, BMW has adopted the ‘Russian Doll’ design; wherein every product basically looks the same. It feels like the cars have taken the ‘twinning’ concept way too seriously. For instance, it is hard to differentiate between the Audi A4, A6, and A8 if not for their lengths. And, this design approach is getting more and more common for brands. Maybe they use it as a ‘brand recall’ strategy, but it is getting out of hand. So, finally, BMW has decided to put an end to it…..finally

PostHeaderIcon Check Out This Nice Demo of the 2019 BMW X7’s Third-Row Seating

A BMW with 3-row seating is a big deal. It’s a big SUV, but a big deal in terms of market incursions as well. The 2019 BMW X7 is the first Beemer to have such an arrangement. Ok, the first after the BMW X5, which has an option for an additional two seats. That one, however, had rather cramped third-row seating. Now the X7, with all of its massive size, can fit two regulars in the third row. Why the heck am I telling you all this?

Well, BMWBlog revealed a cool video filmed on the BMW stand at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show with a 6.3 foot Dany getting into the X7’s third row of seats. He did fit.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M340i xDrive

Just before its official unveiling at the L.A. Auto Show, BMW released the first specifications about the best G20 3 Series revealed so far – the M340i xDrive. It is not an M3, but it is really, really close to being one. Actually, the M340i is the most powerful 3 Series ever revealed. Save for previous two generations of the M3.

Taking the G20 3 Series architecture to a level unachieved by any BMW 340i of before, the 2020 BMW M340i xDrive comes with a standard, electronically controlled, mechanical limited slip differential, a 382 horsepower engine, and specially tuned eight-speed transmission with Launch Control.

Update 12/3/2018: We’ve updated this review with new images taken at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Check them out in the gallery below!

PostHeaderIcon The Next-Gen BMW M4 Will be a “Fortress of Manual” and Will Have AWD

Speculation that the next BMW M3 and M4 would not come with a manual transmission has been dispelled. Both upcoming Motorsport versions of the 3- and 4-Series models will indeed have a six-speed stick shift, and they will even offer the option of all-wheel drive.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Says it can “Force” Your Hybrid Vehicle into Electric-Only Mode Inside Cities

With governments across the world taking steps to de-pollute the atmosphere, especially in developed cities, BMW has come up with a unique solution. The automaker says it can force its hybrid cars to switch to electric-only mode in cities. This is a fix that gives us hope that combustion engines, in some form, could survive for a little longer.

PostHeaderIcon First journos get their hands on 2019 BMW Z4: Videos

BMW is currently inviting automotive journos over to Portugal where it has organized a launch event for its all-new Z4 roadster and, if you’re like us, you’re edging in your seat to know what it’s like to drive. Those who took part in the launch venue got to drive the car both on
Portugal’s famed Estoril track, as well as some of the country’s twisty mountain roads with extremely smooth tarmac.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 BMW 8 Series Convertible vs 2019 Aston Martin DB11 Volante

Unique wheels with a split-spoke layout

The fact that BMW revived the 8 Series nameplate after almost two decades is definitely one of the headlines of 2018. But equally important is the fact that the Germans announced two brand-new versions of this car: there’s an M8 just around the corner, and BMW just introduced the 8 Series Convertible.

The first drop-top version of the 8 Series in history, the Convertible, is here to tackle the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet. However, the topless German is also an option against more expensive grand tourer, like the Aston Martin DB11 Volante. Let’s find out how it compares to the notably more expensive British convertible in the comparison below.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M8 GTE Looks Good In Rainy Prep for Daytona 24-Hour

Former CART and, more recently, Paralympic champion Alex Zanardi completed his first test aboard BMW’s M8 GTE Le Mans race car at the Miramas circuit in France ahead of the Italian’s debut in the 24 Hours of Daytona in January of next year.

Zanardi is known for his inspiring return to racing after a vicious crash during the 2001 CART race at the Lausitzring, in Germany, in which he lost both of his legs. Since then, the Italian achieved success in the World Touring Car Championship, the Blancpain Sprint Series, and has guest-starred in the Spa-Francorchamps 24 Hours race and also competed in the DTM earlier this year.

The man who put down “The Pass” on Bryan Herta at Laguna Seca in 1996 has also become a Paralympics hero winning gold on his para cycle in both the 2012 London Paralympic Games and the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games as well as capturing numerous victories in World Championship para-cycling events since 2011.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 330i GT xDrive – Driven

BMW’s 3-Series Gran Turismo is the other practical variant in the 3-Series lineup for those who don’t want to buy the wagon. It actually has more carrying capacity than the load lugger, and unmatched passenger room, as well as a hatchback design, so you can load big items into the back fairly easily.

It’s really the amount of interior space that impresses in the 3 GT, a car that is nowhere near as popular as it should be because, from my experience with it, there’s actually a lot to like, and it has a bit of a lovable character. Comfort levels are very high, especially if you avoid the harder suspension of the M sport pack (which apparently ruins the ride quality), and opt for the standard setup with adaptive dampers – it is the most comfortable 3-Series you can buy by quite some margin.

Design and styling may not be to everybody’s taste, certainly, but the fact that it has a bit of extra ground clearance over a regular 3-Series and the fact that it’s slightly taller overall, doesn’t negatively affect the way it looks. I think that for a halfway model whose aim is to convince you not to buy an actual crossover or SUV, it looks more than adequate and for some reason better in person than the 6-Series Gran Turismo – its larger and more expensive 5-Series-based brother.

In the 330i xDrive Luxury spec I tested, it was motivated by a turbocharged four-cylinder which is easily powerful enough for lively acceleration and not terrible on fuel. I wouldn’t call it explicitly sporty, but it is miles better to throw around a twisty road than, say, the BMW X3, which just feels tall and cumbersome by comparison.

BMW is probably not going to make a follow-up model for this 3 GT, due to its low appeal in these crossover crazed times. That means a few years down the line it will be even less of a common sight so as time progresses people may start looking for these as a rare, slightly oddball model, but one with excellent daily driver credentials.

PostHeaderIcon 2020 BMW 330e Plug-in Hybrid Has XtraBoost!

What is this, the 90s? XtraBoost sounds like a new feature on a 1995 Honda printed in big letters on the car’s official posters. But no. It’s actually one of BMW’s latest tricks to increase power and lower emissions in a 2020 model. The model in question is called the new BMW 330e and it’s a plug-in hybrid with astonishing performance.

And we mean that both ways. This car performs great both in terms of speed and acceleration, and fuel efficiency. The plug-in hybrid system in the BMW 330e is a 2.0 liter 184 horsepower boosted with an electric motor that generates a continuous output of 68hp and a peak output of 113hp. That is 252 hp and 420 Nm of torque. But then there is the XtraBoost which at the touch of a button delivers an extra 41 horsepower, giving the saloon car 293 horsepower.

Those power figures seem even more astonishing when you take into account that BMW 330e has a CO2 emission rating of 30 g/km. We no of no other car in this segment that does 0 to 60 mph in 6.0 seconds, does a 143 mph flat out, and yet returns 138 mpg and emits so few carbon dioxides. What’s more, you get 37 miles of pure electric drive. The vehicle also benefits from clever packaging. For starters, there is no real sign on the outside that it’s a hybrid. If anything, it looks like a sports saloon. Then there is the practical bits, including a 375-liter boot. And you can have it with all the usual options and trims available for other members of the new 3er family.

Just one thing, you have to wait until mid-2019 to be able to buy one.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 BMW Z4 M Coupe Could Look Like This

BMW recently lifted the veil off its all-new 2019 Z4 roadster, the sixth-generation Z model (or third-gen Z4) and the most visually striking one yet. However, unlike with the first-gen Z4, this one will get neither a hardtop coupe version nor a hot Z4 M variant.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Reveals New Details On M8, Sets Market Release for 2019

For the first time ever, the 8 Series will spawn an M8 version. We know it’s coming, we’ve seen it in concept form, and also as a race car. We still don’t know too many details about the drivetrain, but BMW just released a bit of information and more photos of a camouflaged car.

PostHeaderIcon The New BMW M8 Is Coming, And It’s Magnificent!

Yes, it took them a while, but the Bavarian nutters who work at BMW’s M department have finally got around producing an M version of the new 8-Series. The 2020 BMW M8 is in the final phases of development and we have the first specs and details right here. 

If you find the looks of the new BMW M8 a bit underwhelming at first glance, don’t blame the car. For one thing, it is still camouflaged and deceptively decorated with distracting designs. What’s more, it is based on the 8-Series, and we have all grown accustomed to way that car looks after seeing the coupe and the convertible variants. So yes, the aesthetics of the M8 does not deliver the punch one would expect from a car like this. But that is not to say it’s rubbish. It looks just right.

To be honest though, it also looks heavy. BMW M8 has a lot of bulk, and even though it benefits from the latest discoveries in the material engineering and sophisticated packaging, it is still going to be hefty thing. All those modern safety and comfort features come at a price, besides the money they cost, and that price is weight. Fortunately though, the M8 packs enough power to counter that weight. The sports car boasts a V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo, one of those sweet high-revving BMW engines that can raise the dead when working at full chat. According to BMW, it makes over 600 horsepower in the M8.

As for driving characteristics and how that weight is going to be handled there, you get an M xDrive all-wheel-drive system with rear-wheel bias and 2WD mode. Granted, this does little for agility, but at least you get super precise handling. All the other usual M goodies, such as M suspension with special tune, M brakes and M differentials and electronics are also present.

The new M8 will go into production next year with other variants including BMW M8 Convertible, BMW M8 Gran Coupe already planned.

PostHeaderIcon BMW 327 Sport Cabriolet

The BMW 327 was the German manufacturer’s foray into the production of more up-market sports cars that offered agreeable performance, elegant styling, and comfort. It shares much of the drivetrain with the 326 sedan, and some styling cues are shared with the more well-known 328 two-seaters.

The mid-size 327 arrived in 1937, one year after the motorsports-oriented 328 which was, in essence, a racing car for the road. The 327, however, was tailor-made for a different kind of customer. Be it in coupe or cabriolet guise, this car was a tourer in the true sense of the term, one that could withstand long journeys and offer seating for 4 adults.

It proved to be a popular car back in the interwar period with over with over 1,300 units being built in the Eisenach plant until 1941. The production of the 327 resumed at the same plant after the war but under Soviet rule. Those cars later became known as EMWs (Eisenach Motor Works). The 327 signaled that BMW had reached maturity barely a decade after the former aeronautical engine builder turned its attention to cars.
