Yes, I know what front-wheel drive means, you turkeys. I KNOW HOW THINGS WORK. But on the heels of a BMW sedan concept said to preview a decidedly front-wheel drive new 1 Series, we’re also hearing the beloved 2 Series coupe could go FWD too. But which ones?
In a move that should surprise no one, BMW reportedly is building a “Gran Coupe” version of the 2-series. For those of you not familiar with BMW’s ridiculous naming scheme, when they add “Gran” in front of “Coupe,” it means two extra doors. This might be their best idea yet.
The BMW 228i is the company's smallest two-door, and theoretically its least highway-friendly car. So what's it like running one from Detroit to the wrong side of NYC in ten hours?
Quick: What's the best brand new BMW a true driving enthusiast can buy right now? I know what your immediate answers are, but if you think deeply about them for a second, you might realize you're wrong.
Sleeping in your car used to be something that automakers used to be proud of. Seats that reclined into beds were a major selling point for cars like the Rambler, for example. Now, thanks to anti-homeless laws and a sick desire not to spend a miserable night in a car, hardly anyone still does this. But I thought it…
Maybe some of you will recall back in January we ran a little contest asking readers to spec out their ultimate 2-series, and then we'd pick our favorite, have BMW build it, and let them drive it for a week. Well, we almost forgot until BMW called us up and told us the car is ready. All I need to do is drive it across…
It just so happens that the BMW 2-Series is my favorite new BMW to come along in some time, because it's a spirited, compact rear-drive coupe that pays homage to the old 2002 with lots of modern amenities and performance. And for its second year on the market, it loses a top and gains all-wheel drive.
Remember that heavily camouflaged BMW 2-Series we saw bombing around New Jersey a couple weeks back? The one that may have been an M2? Apparently it's on vacation in Washington D.C., dragging its screaming children around to see the museums and monuments.
We're fortunate to get photos of camouflaged prototypes from you fine readers all the time, and today one New Jersey-based Jalop found something truly interesting. I think it may be a 2016 BMW M2 prototype.
The screams of joy from literally dozens of amateur rallycross drivers could be heard echoing from Vermont to the Netherlands as BMW announced the M235i coupe will get xDrive.
The BMW M235i. It's fast, it looks aggressive, and it's got M badges all over it. From there you might deduce that it's a proper M car like an M3 or an M5. But it isn't! Here's why, and what that means for the rest of the M brand.
The best ideas are often the ones that seem to appear out of nowhere, like when BMW asked us if we wanted to configure a new BMW 2-Series for the local press fleet. We said yes, but we asked if we could let you the reader do the configuring and some of the driving. They said yes to that, too.
BMW hasn't confirmed the 2 Series Gran Coupe for production yet, but we here at Jalopnik are impatient and we want to see it now. Show us the best rendering of this car that you, dear reader, can come up with.
LA is lousy with BMWs. After seeing innumerable X3s and X6s parking across multiple parking places, it's easy to forget some very crucial things. Things like the fundamental goodness of humans and BMW's remarkable ability to make incredible sports coupés. Luckily, the new BMW M235i will remind you of half of those…
