      As of March 2011, this option will be available for all X6 models except the hybrid. The extra seat naturally replaces rear center storage compartment. There are also new wheel options being rolled out as well but the 5 seat option is something that should have been available to begin with. About time BMW, and we figure this is going to be a popular retrofit for X6 owners. ...

This car belongs to someone named Jason and it is a very, very impressive car. ...

      The vast majority of BMW blogs and sites on the net posted pictures of the N20 sitting in an engine bay with a plastic cover. That did not do much for us to be able to see the actual motor. Well, a shot of the motor has surfaced that also reveals the size of the intercooler. This is all we have so far but we are hoping more photos and details of the motor will surface soon. ...

Everything's here so it's go time. We like to keep the shop as clean as humanly possible, but with understanding that our work can get dirty from time to time.

      The ultimate sellout machine continues to roll. BMW announced this week they will be partnering with Peugot-Citroen on a hybrid front wheel drive drivetrain for a BMW vehicle positioned beneath the 1 series. The 0 series? Who knows, but we thought this is what the Mini brand was for? It would seem that the next generation Mini will be sharing this platform so BMW is simply re-badging that for increased sales. Someone make this nonsense stop. ...
