Yeah you’re definitely right about the LMP1 cars, not sure how I forgot about those, and as other people said Moto GP as well. Still, it’s ridiculous an article posted on here could be so off base.

200 mph is so far away from Formula E speeds it’s silly, F1 hits that speed on certain tracks and so does Indy Car but nothing else.

It’s an interesting seating design, it has 3 rows but the middle two seats are configurable and can be turned around or removed. There are more pictures of the interior at C&D: Read more

To be perfectly honest, you wouldn’t want a manual trans in this car. That became painfully obvious with the last generation M5, the cars just aren’t designed for the manual box anymore and have too much power and torque for it to be an enjoyable experience driving one.

Super awkward haha it’s funny because the car looks so amazing when you roll up in it but then when you have to crawl out it kind of dampens the moment.

Yeah, I drove an i8 on track at BMW’s plant in South Carolina and it was pretty clear it’s just not a track car. It was faster than I expected and I imagine it would be really fun on a nice road but it just felt out of it’s element when it was pushed to the limit, especially compared to BMW’s M cars.

Why do you guys only cover the supra and not the BMW version of the car? You are frequently posting about this one but the only post I have seen on the site actually dedicated to the BMW is from a few years ago.

What do you mean read properly? You said “sprayed plastidip in the summer.” How does that imply anything other than this summer?

right well if you’ve done it in the summer it hasn’t been a full 6 months, I’m not about to pay that much money for something that might not last a full year but we will see

Anybody know how his plastidip stuff holds up to the elements? Watching them peel it off as one piece makes me think in freezing temperatures it would naturally contract and ruin the fit letting in moisture and air, only to have bubbles and stuff pop up everywhere once it gets warm outside again. Maybe this works in Read more

“It’s an interesting strategy to try and have at least 1 vehicle for everyone in the range.”

Yeah that’s definitely BMW’s goal there, they really want to have a car for every single type of luxury buyer. That’s why they are bringing in an X7 and possibly x8. The X5 is the biggest SAV they make and people still complain Read more

The changes aren’t really that confusing, there are a lot of models though. The funny thing is that with the 4 series gran coupe you are getting a four door version of a two door version of a four door car, and ironically that’s my favorite vehicle in the lineup. Read more

You said it exactly, the current 6 series is most of the way to a hypothetical 8 series anyways. Based on the current BMW trend they would probably have the 6 just be a coupe version of the 5 and not some really big luxury GT car. They can bring in the 8 based on the 7, and then scale down the 6 a bit to be much more Read more

There’s no chance that BMW is killing off the 6 series entirely, if they do introduce the 8 series they are definitely going to be changing up the 6 series in response. The 8 series will obviously be similar to what the current 6 series is but with more of a focus on comfort like the 7 series has and a higher price Read more
