2009 BMW X5 M and X6 M revealed

In standard guise, the BMW X5 and especially its controversial X6 sibling are already very rapid and surprisingly agile, questioning not only the necessity of an M-division variant but also whether it was even possible to improve their performance. It seems subtlety is not part of the M-division vocabulary, engineering its new X5 M and X6 M flagship models to extraordinary heights, beginning with the engine...

BMW X6 M spied winter testing

As manufacturers continue to take advantage of the winter months in northern Scandinavia, the latest model to be spied in the freezing conditions is the highly anticipated BMW X6 M variant. While BMW has still not officially acknowledged an M-division model based on the X6 - unlike the X5 M which was treated to an official spy teaser - these images clearly show the model is definitely in development...

2010 BMW X5 M interior spied

Having already conquered the Nurburgring, the forthcoming BMW X5 M has been spied cold weather testing in northern Scandinavia.

2010 BMW X5 M SUV spied

With BMW having previously released an 'official' teaser video last month at the Nurburgring, our spy photographers have come across a prototype version of the forthcoming BMW X5 M SUV undergoing winter testing. Having previously preached never to add the BMW SUV range to the M division line-up, the remarkable ability of these latest generation soft-roaders makes them more than qualified for a performance revamp...

Video: BMW X5 M SUV prototype teaser

BMW has released its own official teaser video to showcase a prototype model of its new X5 M SUV around the Nürburgring circuit. The brand had previously ignored the idea of an M variant for the X5 and X6 models; however the current climate for performance SUVs has proved far too alluring. The new BMW X5 M will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 4...

BMW X5 M Sport Package

Unlike arch-rival Mercedes Benz, which has an AMG variant for nearly every one of its cars, BMW has previously said it will only apply the M badge and treatment to models that suit. Although this is by no means the full M treatment, with the performance staying the same, BMW has today announced that for the first time in its nine-year history, the company's large SAV (Sport Activity Vehicle), the BMW X5, will be available with an M Sport Package...

BMW 3 Series M Sports Package

BMW has sold 1,734 of new 3 series in Australia since the car was introduced in October 2006. So far the fastest and most powerful 3-series you can buy is the Twin Turbo 335i, and while many have opted for the power of the 335i, a select few continue to wait for the M3...

2008 BMW M3 M DCT Gearbox

UK website Autocar reports the new BMW M3 can be optioned out with a seven-speed double-clutch gearbox named, M DCT. As much as we love the standard six-speed manual (standard) and the feel and fun factor of driving a traditional manual, the seven-speed would have to be the ideal choice. This is a completely different system to the much criticised SMG system in the BMW M5/6...

BMW Z4 M Coupe Australia

xThe BMW Z4 has always been the sort of car that turns a lot heads as it goes around. The owners know it, thats why they bought it! However whenever it came up next a hotted up Jap car (or even your stock Impreza WRX - Lancer Evo - Mazda 6 MPS) it always failed to match its looks. This is all until the Z4 M Coupe comes out in Australia later in the year...
