    Video: 2015 BMW M3 squares off against Alpina D3 in gas vs. diesel throwdown
    1406588460

    There was a time when diesel meant one of two things: This vehicle's owner either wants to save some money at the pump or needs to haul massive loads. It definitely did not mean that the owner of said machine wanted to drive fast, but that perception has slowly but surely been changing over the last several years, with automakers from Volkswagen and Ford ...

    Official: BMW begins restoring Elvis Presley's 507 [w/video]
    1406329200

    Imagine the King of Rock n' Roll driving a car and you'll likely picture a pink Cadillac or a yellow De Tomaso shot full of holes. But Elvis also owned a 1957 BMW 507 roadster, and now that roadster is returning home to BMW headquarters. The 507 was a rare bird, of which only 254 examples were ever made. They were sold mostly to celebrities and royalty, ...

    Report: BMW predicts 2 Series Active Tourer will have 75% conquest rate
    1406300460

    In the last few years, BMW has definitively proven that it wasn't a slave to its legacy. In North America, the 3 Series was generally associated with smooth, flat-six engines, but the Bavarian brand dropped a four-cylinder turbo into it. The company was also known for its sports sedans, and it went green with the i3 and i8. Now, rear-wheel drive is off ...

    1406235600

    UPDATE: The 5 Series prototype seen in these photos is previewing a new generation of wagon for the model, not simply a mid-cycle refresh. The text has been updated to reflect this. With a debut in 2009, it's high time that BMW delivered the world with the next generation of its popular 5 Series. While we aren't expecting to see it here in the United ...

    Rumormill: BMW to change model designations, further yet from actual displacement?
    1405342800

    Once upon a time, you could look at the back of a trunk lid of a BMW and come up with a pretty fair idea of what sat under its hood. For example, a 320i was a 3 Series with a fuel-injected, 2.0-litre engine, a 328i was a 3 Series with a fuel-injected, 2.8-litre engine and a 328Ci was a two-door 3 Series with the same engine. Those were good days... READ ...

    Spy Shots: BMW working on 'FAST' CUV to slot between X1 and 2 Series
    1405108800

    Our spy shooters have caught a new FAST BMW testing that's rumoured to hit the market in late 2015. Sadly, the word fast in that last sentence isn't describing the car's performance; instead it's an acronym that stands for Family Active Sports Tourer. Talk about a case of false advertising. Despite it's speedy name, the FAST doesn't look ready to set any ...

    Video: BMW 2 Series Active Tourer corners surprisingly flat on 'Ring
    1404939420

    With seven seats and front-wheel drive, you might not expect the upcoming long-wheelbase version of the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer to live up to the Ultimate Driving Machine reputation that BMW has fostered over the years. But the latest spy clip from the Nürburgring suggests otherwise. The Bavarian automaker has apparently been testing its new ...
