Model Spotlight: BMW M3 Convertible

Last week, BMW celebrated three decades of the M3 Convertible with the M4 Edition 30 Years. Essentially an M4 Convertible Competition Package with some special interior touches and a glut of unique exterior finishes, it represents the zenith of a long line of M-fettled drop-tops. Here, we've taken a look at where that car's lineage began, how it's evolved and where it's ended up...

BMW M3, M4 to get new driveshaft due to emissions requirements

BMW has announced some running changes to the driveshafts in the M3 and M4 performance cars in preparation for new emissions regulations.

2018 BMW M4 CS pricing and specs: New hero model rounds out local range

A new hero has joined the local BMW M4 line-up, sitting atop the range - but at a more affordable point than the limited-edition GTS that preceded it. This one, the new BMW M4 CS, will join an already expanded group that includes the M4 Pure, the M4 and the M4 Competition. The CS badge makes its return after having last been seen in 2005 on the E46 M3 - for the UK only - and before that not since the '70s and '60s...
