BMW to change model designations even further from actual displacement? by [email protected]
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-liter engine, a 328i was a 3 Series with a fuel-injected, 2.8-liter engine and a 328Ci was a two-door 3...

2014 kidney grill change by really real
Since buying a 2014 381i BMW Sports Touring, I've been looking a lot at the styles of the BMW's I see on the street. It seems that the kidney grill changed in 2014, slightly, but importantly. The front of the car slopes down slightly, making the kidney grills look more like nostrils, sniffing...

2014 BMW i8 by [email protected]
The 2014 BMW i8 is an oddity indeed in the world of sexy, six-figure sport coupes: It's meant to usher in "a new era of sustainable performance" for the category--though it can be hotly debated whether buyers of those cars really care about fuel efficiency or environmental concerns. Still, the i8's...

BMWs and iPod Classics by really real
When we test drove a BMW 381i Touring (wagon) I took along my iPod which stopped working after one song. The salesman said they were incomparable with BMWs and suggested I get a newer iPod like a Touch. This was very bad news as the iPod classics are much bigger than the new ones and I need...

AWD vs RWD -which handles better in good conditions? by really real
I live on a very steep hill, and for those few slushy days, I need AWD. I was very happy that BMW started making their xDrive system. I always assumed that with AWD, one pays a price as the car is heavier, and I assumed, the handling in good conditions wasn't as good. I'm confused about...

Wot, no sun roof? by Terry Pinnell[_3_]
The time has finally come to replace my s/h 1996 BMW 328i SE and my first choice would be another petrol s/h 3-Series of similar or better performance. But I'm dismayed that none of the more recent models offer a sun roof. An essential requirement for me. What's the reason for that omission,...

Gus Van Sant casts the BMW i8 in soft light by [email protected]
BMW has spent the better part of a century building its reputation with fossil-burning transportation, but now it's banking heavily on the success of its new i family of electric vehicles. In order to succeed, it will need to sell examples of the i3, but sell the idea with the i8. And in order to...

Rental Grinders Of The Road: First Place by sjmmail2000-[email protected]
You'll search long and hard to find someone else as firmly committed to the removal of the SUV from the American road as your humble author believes himself to be. Although I drove four different Land Rovers during the company's BMW and Ford periods (a '97 five-speed Disco, a '99 Rangie 4.0S that I...
