Overview: The M3 is a legend in the world of performance cars, giving enthusiasts everywhere reason to speak in gushing superlatives whenever given the chance. It’s even better now that the M3 has had a heart transplant in the guise of a twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six that makes 425 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque; it replaces the previous model’s 414-hp 4.0-liter V-8. To help you avoid confusion, the M3 badge is now applied only to sedan models; coupe and convertible models now wear the new M4 designation.
Sublime handling, turbo torque, baby DTM rear fender flares, comfortable all day long.

Overview: The A3 distinguishes itself as a great-handling, attractive sedan with an upscale interior and luxury features not generally expected in this segment. A 170-hp 1.8-liter turbo four with front-wheel drive and a six-speed auto are standard; a manual is not offered. Optional is a 220-hp 2.0-liter four with a six-speed auto and Quattro all-wheel drive. Steering is precise and the ride is composed; fit and finish are superb. If you need more power, an S3 will be available later this year. HIGHS AND LOWS of the Audi A3 Highs: Roomy for its size, sophisticated chassis, fun to drive, premium fit and finish. Lows: High beltline, automatic lacks paddle shifters, no manual transmission, no diesel (yet).

Overview: Once upon a time, the 5-series was a tactile and agile hot rod for the autobahn; today, it is merely a roomy, luxury conveyance. All engines are turbocharged: the diesel inline-six; gasoline four-cylinder, inline-six, and V-8, and the gas-electric hybrid; each pairs with an eight-speed automatic. The gas six features a rare manual gearbox, and all but the hybrid offer all-wheel drive. We’re not fond of the precise yet numb steering, and options can push the price past that of a 7-series. Pros and Cons of the 2014 BMW are that it shoves hard, even at low rpm; virtually free of turbo lag; hushed mechanicals. Some cons are that is it a Fuel-obsessed transmission, numb steering, doesn’t feel any smaller than a 7-series.
VEHICLE TYPE: front-engine, rear-wheel-drive, 5-passenger, 4-door sedan
The next far forward-looking view of BMW’s design themes and luxury concepts will come at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, in the form of the BMW Vision Future Luxury concept, previously shown at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show.
“We use visionary concept vehicles like the BMW Vision Future Luxury to show where we may be going with these themes in the future, and to give us new inspiration and motivation,” said Adrian van Hooydonk, BMW Group Design senior vice president in a statement. “The BMW Vision Future Luxury—with its innovative technologies and with meticulous precision and quality in every detail—takes our thinking on modern luxury a logical stage further.”
UPDATE: Yesterday, (July 16, 2014) it was announced that this recall has expanded to all 3 Series cars manufactured between May 1999 and August 2006, not just in the regions originally mentioned below.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and BMW N.A. will be issuing a limited regional recall of select BMW e46 3 Series vehicles due to defective frontal airbags in Florida, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Which BMW models are affected by the recall?
BMW e46 3 Series model year 2001-2005 325i, 325xi and 330xi, and 2001-2006 325Ci and 330Ci, currently registered in Florida, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand airbag inflators.
What causes the defective frontal airbags?
The frontal airbags made by Takata contain a faulty propellant and can deploy irregularly, and/or rupture with metal fragments striking occupants. Some reports speculate that the airbag failure may be linked to high humidity areas/regions.
Before your undergrad hits the books in the campus library, gets involved with Greek life or tailgates for the big game, have these auto-related items checked by your local BMW repair shop to ensure safety on the road prior to the start of Fall semester.
Engine: English 101 may be a breeze but breaking down on the side of the road due to engine trouble isn’t. Engine problems can range from engine overheating to jerky driving, and more, so have your local BMW mechanic check the hoses, lines, clamps, temperature gauge and your water pump, to make sure everything is in prime operating condition.

Bimmerfest introduces the all-new 2015 BMW X6. With this new X6 BMW celebrates the second generation of the world’s first-ever Sports Activity Coupe. When the automaker took the bold step of combining the performance of a BMW Sports Activity Vehicle with the emotional design character of a traditional coupe, BMW created a vehicle concept that the market had not yet even conceived of. With global sales of 250,000 X6s to date, it is clearly a concept that the marketplace has embraced. In additional to an updated and even more extroverted design, the new X6 introduces the first rear-wheel drive model in the line-up with the X6 sDrive35i, powered by BMW’s award-winning 300 horsepower TwinPower Turbo inline six. It joins models with xDrive, BMW’s intelligent all-wheel drive [...]
The cooling system of your Bmw heavily relies on the thermostat so as to work properly. A functional Bmw thermostat is very important in making sure the engine has enough anti-freeze to avoid overheating.
Just like other components, Bmw thermostats will eventually break down. A possible sign that you must replace your Bmw ‘s ”thermometer” is if it gets stuck in open or close position, triggering an engine temperature warning light to malfunction; whatever happens, the car’s cooling system is surely to suffer and cause more serious engine issues. Rusty patches are definitely typical troubles especially if water trickles into the thermostat’s steel parts. You’ll have to buy a new component if it’s worn out.
