Here are some keys you don’t want to lose on the dance floor. For those lucky enough to afford the new BMW i8, they’ll definitely want to match it with this BMW i8 Key Fob. Of course, the high-resolution screen locks and unlocks doors, yada yada. It’ll also display the range left on the existing charge, when to recharge and likely, other dashboard-type stats. Even better, the unit also features user-programmable functions. It does cost $1,000, so it’s not a drop in the bucket. Someone paying $135k for the i8 though, probably won’t worry too much about another thousand.

Rides By on Dec 12, 2013
Here’s another car that’ll help pick up the ladies. These leaked pics show a stunning 2015 BMW M4. A 3.0-liter twin-turbo I-6 produces 425 hp with an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. BMW’s carbon fiber-reinforced plastics help the M4 lose a couple hundred pounds compared to the old M3 coupe, or roughly the amount of weight Al Roker lost after gastric bypass surgery. All this for about $70k.

Rides By on Oct 25, 2013
You’re looking at what may be the biggest star of BMW’s new 2 Series, the M235i. Powered by a turbocharged, 3.0-liter six-cylinder, the M235i is expected to deliver 320 horsepower, getting the ol’ girl’s 3,240 pounds to 60 mph in a crisp 4.8 seconds. The ready-to-race ‘tude is further exemplified by the tricked out body, as well as a handful of M-labeled interior items. May we make one suggestion regarding modifications to the body?

BMW Motorrad R nineT Roadster: 90 Years Old, Still Going Fast
Rides By on Oct 18, 2013
Most 90-year-olds employ the ol’ walker-with-sliced-up-tennis-ball approach to transportation, but BMW is celebrating its 90th anniversary of making motorcycles by going a little bit faster than that. The R nineT from BMW Motorrad pays homage to the original 1923 BMW R 32 with its classic styling and boxer twin-engine (1,170cc) that churns out 110 horsepower and 88 pound-feet of torque. There’s also a bevy of customization options available with the R nineT, including a titanium Akrapovic exhaust. Sadly, no tennis balls though.
BMW i3: Electric Car, Acoustic Vibe
Rides By on Jul 30, 2013
The brand new BMW i3 ($41,350) is an electric driverless car that’s not looking to impress you with its speed specs. “Urban mobility” is the keyphrase here as the i3’s shape and innards are designed to maximize efficiency, not horsepower. BMW says you’ll be able to go 80 to 100 miles before the juice runs out, and they’re also touting the vehicle’s petite size and turning radius–features that are tailor-made for city driving, just make sure to know your state seat belt laws to avoid hefty fines. With an interior that aims for both sassy and classy (the dashboard is made of dried grass), the i3 looks likely to carve out its own niche.

Rides By on Jul 22, 2013
BMW’s 4-Series Coupe is getting a serious makeover — think Ty Pennington with a scar and neck tat — thanks to an infusion of the M4′s M Performance parts. The upgraded body kit includes 20″ alloy wheels, a modified front bumper with carbon fiber splitter and enlarged air ducts, a new rear bumper with air extraction ducts, carbon fiber mirror housing, Xenon LED headlamps, blackened chrome trim and more. The M Performance package also boosts engine performance for each configuration, from the 420d’s 195 horsepower and 309 lb-ft of torque on the lower end of the spectrum, to the 435i’s 336 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.
BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupé: A Zesty Jolt Of Italiano
Rides By on May 28, 2013
If BMW’s newest concept car looks a little more Italian than it does German, there’s a good reason for that. The Gran Lusso Coupe was built in partnership with Italian design house Pininfarina, and it’s simply a stunner. A voracious V-12 gets those plump 21-inch wheels spinning, and the interior is decked out in brown leather seating with a black headliner made from Italian virgin wool. Apparently the kauri wood accent pieces imported from New Zealand are more than 48,000 years old too. So virgin wool and 48,000 year-old wood? Nah, there’s no joke there.
BMW Concept 4 Series Coupe
Rides By on Dec 6, 2012
When the post-holiday icicles return to our hearts in January, we’re gonna need something to thaw ’em out. Perhaps the official unveiling of the BMW 4 Series Concept Coupe at the Detroit Auto Show will do the trick? It’s a slightly longer and wider ride than the 3 Series, which just gave the designers more room for super sleek lines. There’s full-LED headlamps and an interior that’s overflowing with more premium leather than a Coach outlet shop (don’t ask how I know that). Stay tuned for more details on what’s under the hood, but we’re expecting something close to the 3 Series’ 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine and the 3.0-liter turbo-six.
