BMW become legendary with the help of three letters: tii that first debuted in the ’70s and stands for performance and lightweight. For BMW fans 1600ti, 2002tii, 2000tilux are magical shortcuts. Almost fours years after BMW produced the last 325ti, at the end of 2007 at the Tokyo Motor Show the ti-drug begun again with the launch of the 1-Series tii Concept, while the production version is scheduled to go on sale in the spring.

Same thing will also happen with the next generation 3-series sedan that will debut in 2011. The tii package will include: carbon kits, aerodynamic parts, larger wheels and brakes, bucket seats and a sport steering wheel with built-in wreath LED tachometer.

Also BMW is working on stronger M3 brakes, a special 19-inch sports suspension, a double-clutch gearbox and a sharper charged three-liter turbo with around 355 hp.

As about other future models, there will be a new 1-Series at the end of 2011, the next generation 3-Series coming early 2012 and a new X3 in early 2011.
