BMWBlog    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The BMW design house has traditionally skipped generations to complete both evolutions, and revolutions of their cars. Alternating back and forth, the E46 was a safe (and handsome) evolutionary step from the E36, while the E90 broke the mold and found a revolutionary "flame" inspired new shape. More

BMW M5 diesel
USA Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
That remarkable diesel engine in BMW's 3-series sedan is to get a power upgrade and make an appearance in the BMW M5 sedan next spring. The M5 diesel will have three turbochargers, he says, rather than two that are fitted to the 3-series diesel. Most diesel purveyors are only putting a single turbo on theirs. Multiple turbos means a maker can provide a small one to respond fast and eliminate turbo lag, and one or more big ones to really pack in the air for higher-speed power that's somewhere north of ridiculous.

The Globe and Mail    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Power and Associates APEAL (Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout) study, which is a so-called "things gone right" bit of research — then why can't BMW solve the problem of how to make the entire 1-Series lineup viable and sellable in Canada?
