We took a break of the 1M this week to talk about the new 6 Series concept. Is it finally a 6er that we can love? Early signs point to yes. Then we talk about the updated Vision concept for Paris. It ‘s a further iteration on what we saw last year but this time with a fully functional the three cylinder diesel hybrid (among other things). Rounding out the sustainability section of the show we move to the ActiveE and BMW ‘s plans to expand it to new markets in the east and west coasts of the US.

Then it ‘s sound systems and BMW ‘s new tie-up with B&O.Could it spell the end of bad high-end stereos in BMWs?

Finally we end the show talking about the M3 and how it ‘s progressed (or not) over the years. Has increased power ruined us and the M3? Listen to the show and then sound-off below.

Oh and one last show note. We have new theme music for just this week courtesy of Led Zeppelin. It ‘s a tribute to my late Grandfather who ‘s favorite album was always Led Zeppelin II. Enjoy.

    Still lovin the podcasts. This one is no exception.

    I agree the at new 6er looks as great as the last gen looked fugly. I also agree that the old 6er attracted the older poser types which we don’t really respect in the we-track-our-cars enthusiast community. But the new 6er will still attract that demographic because its expensive, has a tiny back seat, and is a comfortable cruiser.

    Just because a car attracts the d-bag crowd doesn’t automatically disqualify it from greatness. If we had the chance to meet alot of them, we might come to dislike Ferrari owners, mighn’t we?

    p.s. Re: the audio, Gabe sounded great, Michael sounded like in a tin can. Keep up the great work.

  • Sounded much clearer this time, though far too quiet still so I had to use headphones. Crank it guys!

    Totally agree on the matte finish wood trim, it looks great. The 6er is not my cup of tea, but it is very handsome. I really like the headlights and new corona rings.

  • Glad to hear you guys again. I was getting worried! Volume levels are still very low though…
