2019 BMW 3 Series Touring spied

The next-generation BMW 3 Series Touring has been spied again, this time giving us an early look and the new 3er's interior. While still heavily camouflaged, we can see the new-gen 3 Series Touring will look very much like a shrunken version of the new 5 Series Touring – which is no bad thing...

BMW patents bottom-filling champagne glasses

Imagine this: you're being transported at 189km/h down an autobahn on your way to an important meeting. You've just finished haranguing your personal assistant about his use of Comic Sans on an important document. You're a little stressed out, and need to relax...

BMW has begun the official tease of its next-generation 3 Series, releasing a set of camouflaged pictures of the crucial mid-size sedan taking on the Nurburgring. Although we can't tell too much about the way it'll look, BMW has provided a few tantalising details about the car. For one, it'll maintain its 50/50 weight distribution, and have a centre of gravity around 10mm lower than the current model...

2019 BMW Z4 M40i leaked in full

After leaking in a set of poorly-lit, awkwardly cropped pictures earlier this week, the BMW Z4 M40i has been outed in full. Unsurprisingly it looks just like the world expected, albeit with slightly toned-down detailing over the show car launched at Pebble Beach last year. The pictures, leaked on Belgian automotive website autotijd...

The BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe has been spied during development testing, giving us another glimpse at the company's upcoming rival to the likes to the Mercedes-Benz CLS and Porsche Panamera.

2018 BMW X3, X4 recalled

BMW Australia has issued a recall for the 2018 model-year X3 and X4 crossovers over concerns of a fault with the braking system. The manufacturer reports that "there is a possibility of air being trapped in the hydraulic braking system", which can cause the rear brake circuit to fail, or in "extreme circumstances" the brake pedal may "travel to the floor"...

2019 BMW Z4 M40i leaked

The 2019 BMW Z4 has been leaked online, revealing production looks in keeping with those of the Concept Z4 that preceded it. These photos, shared on Bimmerpost, reveal it looks very similar to the concept preceding it, albeit with a few small changes. Up front, the chrome-detailed grille of the show car has been replaced with a gloss black unit, while the flowing front splitter has been traded for a slightly chunkier setup...

BMW 740Le v Lexus LS500h 0-250km/h - video

The BMW 740Le and Lexus LS500h are two hybrid-powered luxury limousines which wouldn't necessarily be your first choice for a drag race. In a new YouTube clip, however, AutoTopNL has compared the acceleration from the two upper-large land yachts from 0 to 250km/h – and the result may surprise you. Powering the plug-in hybrid BMW is a 190kW/400Nm 2...

2020 BMW 3 Series 'Electric' spied

A prototype believed to be an all-electric BMW 3 Series has been spied this week, indicating the next-generation mid-sizer could be getting a pure-electric variant. Serving as the Bavarian marque's direct rival to the Tesla Model 3, the electric 3 Series doesn't give much away in terms of distinguishing features from its combustion-powered siblings, other than the 'Electric Test Vehicle' stickers plastered on the sides and rear...
