BMW Settles In Class Action Lawsuit for Poor Key Fob Design
It really sucks when you accidentally lock yourself out of your car, especially if you’re stuck somewhere you’d rather not be. Apparently, BMW X5 owners who underwent this ordeal may be able to place the blame on the design of their key fobs, as BMW is currently facing down a class action lawsuit for poor design of the locking function.
The 2020 BMW 7 Series Is A Bavarian Tech Fest
The 2020 BMW 7 Series Intelligent Personal Assistant Is Equal Parts Creepy and Cool
As my wife will be quick to tell you, I can occasionally get a little paranoid when it comes to modern digital technology. I don’t like being tracked. I don’t like how cameras are everywhere and always turned on. I don’t like anything that even carries a whiff of 1984. As such, the Intelligent Personal Assistant in the new 2020 BMW 7 Series makes me nervous. However, at the same time, the geek in me thinks it’s pretty damn cool.
BMW Should Offer Some Of Its Cars with Different Grille Size Options
Iconic and instantly recognizable as the BMW kidney grille may be, it has been growing and growing with recent models to the point where now it’s become too big on some models - yes, I’m looking at you, facelifted 7-Series sedan. But the refreshed 7-Series is not the only culprit here, because the new X7 is too, as well as the new X5 to a lesser degree.
There’s More to the 2020 BMW 7 Series Than that Massive Grille
The facelifted 2020 BMW 7 Series appeared only hours after the most impressive debut of the 2019 Detroit Auto Show concluded. It is a considerably redesigned model, regardless of the fact that everyone’s talking only about its massive front grille. There is so much more to it than that.
Revealed on June 10, 2015, at BMW’s headquarters in Munich, the latest 7 Series was rather nice but never did achieve the stature of the S-Class. I may even go that far to say that no 7 Series ever did so. Now, three and a half years after the introduction of the 7 Series G11, BMW replenished it with new modern, and somewhat controversial design cues, new technology, and a new V-8 engine. That one was taken straight from the BMW M850i Sports Coupe.
The Munich-based company definitely dispensed with the subtle and conventional. Finally, we have a 7 Series that boasts perplexing, if not even esoteric, design.
2020 BMW 7 Series LWB Leaks Mere Hours Prior to Official Debut
The 2020 BMW 7 Series Is Nearly Here, Front End Teased Before Debut
BMW’s New Futurelight Camper Concept Represents the Future of Outdoor Adventure
BMW’s Designworks division is showcasing its latest project at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show. Developed together with outdoor clothing company The North Face, the concept is called the Futurelight Camper, and it’s essentially a futuristic camping tent that traces its roots to the BMW GINA Light Visionary Model Concept that the German automaker unveiled in 2008. If anything, the Futurelight Camper Concept proves that just because camping doesn’t necessarily extend to being a high-tech affair, that doesn’t mean you can’t do it in the comfort of a camping tent that comes with a geodesic-dome frame made from carbon fiber and a high-tech fabric that comes from a process called Nanospinning technology. Unfortunately, it looks like the Futurelight Camper Concept is going to remain a concept for the time being.
BMW Has More Leaks Than a Cheap Tent as the 2020 7 Series Configurator Accidentally Goes Live Early
A fresh batch of leaked images of the new 2020 BMW 7 Series has surfaced online. The new images show the front, side, and rear of the 7 Series in the M760Li, 750Li M Sport, and 750Li. It’s not the first time this week that we’re seeing the new 7 Series before it’s scheduled to debut at the 2019 North American International Auto Show. In a span of a few days, leaked photos from Russia surfaced on the Internet, giving us a peek at the luxury sedan. No less than a day a later, the full front section of the 7 Series was shown, providing us a clean look at the sedan’s massive corporate grille. Suffice to say; it hasn’t been the best of weeks for BMW’s anti-leaks division if it even has one in the first place.
The Front End of the 2020 BMW 7 Series Has Leaked Again But This Isn’t the Same Car
We just posted an article about a leaked picture showing off the front end of the 2020 BMW 7 Series, but now the up-and-coming Bavarian luxury sled is once again splashed all over the Internet, and by the look of it, we could be dealing with multiple models here.
This Leaked Image of the 2020 BMW 7 Series Showcases a Grille Larger Than That of the 2019 BMW X7
If there’s anything other than the Great Wall of China that can be seen from the moon, it has got to be the BMW’s latest kidney grilles. Even though people were critically vocal about big grille on the 2019 BMW X7, the German automaker does not seem to be affected by it. Now, a picture has surfaced that shows the 2020 BMW 7 Series sedan with an even larger grille slapped on it. Strike that. It shows a huge kidney grille with a BMW 7 Series slapped onto it.
If This Leak Shows the 2019 BMW 7 Series Facelift, It Looks a Lot Like the 2014 BMW Vision Future Concept
The BMW 7 Series has been around since the late ‘70s, with the latest sixth generation dropping back in 2015. Now, however, it’s time for an update, but before the big official sheet pull, we’re getting a sneak peek thanks to a recent Instagram post that reveals the front three quarters of the new vehicle completely undisguised.
The China-Only 3-Series L is Nearly As Long as the BMW 5 Series
Premium automakers give China special attention because the Chinese market is so big and lucrative that it makes a lot of financial sense for them to do so and that’s why they all have long-wheelbase versions of the sedans they sell there. The latest premium sedan to be launched is the all-new 3-Series from BMW, and it really didn’t take long for the stretched model to make its appearance.
Warehouse Find: 11 1994 BMW 5-Series E34s with Zero Miles
From time to time a story such as this one pops up, where people stumble across many cars that were forgotten in storage. Such discoveries are akin to time machines, so when we heard that 11 essentially brand new E34 5-Series BMW were discovered in a warehouse in Bulgaria, we had to check it out.
The 2021 BMW i8 Could be a 700-Horsepower Hybrid Supercar Aimed Directly at the Heart of Ferrari
It took all of two days before the first supercar news of 2019 arrived. BMW, it seems, is cooking up an indirect replacement for the i8 hybrid sports coupe, only this time, the model in question is pegged as a new flagship M Performance model that could produce a combined 700 horsepower. Very rarely do you see a BMW with the kind of power and performance that can rival the likes of Ferrari and McLaren. If this rumor has legs to it, we could be seeing that very car: a proper BMW supercar that can compete with the best the segment has to offer.
2018 BMW M850i xDrive Coupe Night Sky Edition
In an industry where standing out is imperative, BMW has found a way to create a one-off M850i xDrive Coupe using a material that’s literally out of this world. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the BMW M850i xDrive Coupe Night Sky Edition, and it comes with applications made from meteoritic material grace selected controls. The one-off M850i is the creation of BMW’s Individual customization division, and it arrived in time for the first meteor shower of 2019, which took place all over the world on January 3. It’s unclear if the M850i Night Sky Edition is earmarked for a specific person. What’s clear, though, is that BMW Individual is off to a rousing start in 2019. If future projects are as interesting as this, Bimmer’s personalization division could have a huge year in its hands.
BMW Will Electrify the 2020 2 Series Gran Coupe the Right Way
BMW’s lineup of Gran Coupe models will expand in 2019 to the 2 Series. The four-door subcompact was already spotted on public roads, but the big news is that it will arrive with a hybrid drivetrain too. That’s the word from BMW Blog, which claims that BMW will stuff an electric motor in the M Performance version.
BMW is Plotting an i8-Based Hybrid Supercar to Take on the McLaren 570S
In recent years, BMW has been all about throwing M badges at almost anything it manufacturers. However, the Bavarian manufacturer has consistently shied away from producing another supercar. This could all change in just a few years, however, if a new supercar receives the green light from Munich.
BMW is a manufacturer that chases both driving pleasure and efficiency, as seen by the growing portfolio of the BMW i sub-brand. At the forefront of the BMW i family is the i8, the automaker’s first mid-engined car in 35 years. It was previewed by the Vision EfficientDynamics concept in 2009 and began shipping in 2014. It has butterfly doors and looks futuristic, but the performance isn’t on par with contemporary models we bestow the honor of calling ’supercars.’ BMW is now looking at ways to make a mid-engine model with the kidney grille up front that deserves to be talked about in the same breath as, for instance, a McLaren.
2021 BMW 4 Series Convertible
BMW is set to launch an all-new 4-Series two-door sometime in 2019 or 2020, and while the G23 coupe version will not feature any dramatic changes over the current model, the G22 droptop will. Spy shots indicate that for the first time in two generations (E93 and F33), BMW is giving up on the folding hardtop design in favor of the more traditional soft top option which it last used on the E46 model discontinued in 2006.
Heavy camouflage covers the prototype spotted, but this important change is quite evident as the canvas top is left completely bare (quite obviously on purpose). It might be an illusion caused by the camo, but it also appears this new 4-Series has a longer hood and rear decklid compared to its predecessor.
Update 01/02/2019: We’ve managed to catch the BMW 4 Series Convertible, and while much hasn’t changed outside we do finally get a look at the interior. Check out the spy shots section below to learn more.
