BMW Begins to Win Back Fallen Hearts with M4 GTS

Finally, we get something good, eh?

For the first time in BMW’s history here, a special-edition M4 will be available natively in Canada. It is called the GTS, and it will definitely put a lot of cars to shame. With its 493 hp turbo-6, this will undoubtedly put regular M4s to shame and then some. 

2016 BMW M2 – This is It

Sweet baby Jesus!

BMW has officially run out of names for its M cars. All of the normal numbered series cars now have a true M variant save the 7-series which has never had an official M version (this may happen, though). At least it didn’t have to play word games to appropriately name this M car without stepping on historic toes. We all remember having to correct our friends when they referred to the stunningly good 1-series M as the “M1”, which was actually a mid-engined halo car made in the late 70s as a homologation special. No more bunched up panties, you can safely call it M2.

BMW M235i, All the M You Need

I’ve been talking about relatively tame every day cars, so I decided that today I’d actually talk about something interesting. 

The BMW M235i.  If you read any car websites, I’m sure you’ve read the scores of journalists gushing over the “M-lite” and rolled your eyes at their attempts to find ever more clever ways to write about how great it is.

Well I’m here to say…

A New 7-Series is Here, and it Wants Mercedes Blood

BMW’s flagship returns with a vengeance and James Bond levels of tech.

The new 7-series is here. It may not be as timeless as an E38 or as sporty as the E34 before that, but it sure is 2015. Here are some marked improvements:

The BMW Brand Dilution Continues… For the Better?

It looks as though BMW will be expanding their recently famed brand dilution by adding a Gran Coupé (read: four door) version of the 2-series to their lineup, reports German mag Auto Motor und Sport via Jalopnik. While the Gran Coupé treatment has been a little less than settling to BMW purists, the beautiful 6-Series GC has shown that this can work.

Rumour: The BMW M2 (F87) Will Be the E46 M3 that Isn’t 10 Years Old

Some Bimmer nerds over at 2addicts.com have exposed some rumours that make your next performance car decision even more difficult. The next big thing to come out of BMW M will be a full-blown model to success the beloved 1-Series M that there are obviously no more of.

Cars That Make Us Do 180s

I, along with many car enthusiasts, admit to having my certain biases towards one car or another, sometimes for no good reason. For example, I used to absolutely despise any Volkswagen Auto Group (VAG) brands.This bias branched from the overly apparent phenomenon of experience before knowledge. In the mid-2000s, my father replaced his archaic yet classic 1991 BMW 318i. The E30 was a gem in my eyes. Despite the constant problems it had since he took delivery in ’91, it was an E30, it was white, it was manual, and it may have been the lethargic 4-banger model, but it was damn smooth. The vehicle he replaced it with? A 1999 VW Jetta 2.0.
