BimmerCast #47: The M Show



Subscribe | Download (20 MB MP3)

We ‘re back after a few weeks off with a full show on our favorite letter in the alphabet. We start off talking about the management changes at the BMW M with Dr Kay Segler going back to MINI (to bring some of his magic to another M brand) while his replacement steps in. We break-down what may have led to the change and what to look for out of the new guy at the top.

Then we move onto product. First up is the M5. Yes it ‘s just a concept but we all know that it ‘s 99% what we ‘ll see on dealer floors later this year. Then we move into the M3 lightweight at those gorgeous seats. We give our guesses on weight savings and then move onto to the 1M MotoGP car. Is it a 1M CSL? Perhaps. But more probable than that we could be seeing the first glimpses of BMW Performance M parts for the 1M.

Then we talk about Mfest and what to expect. Held at the Nurburgring this June the Mfest will feature the debut of the M3 lightweight along with another surprise or two.

Finally we take a look at the new F13 6 Series Coupe which just debuted digitally a couple weeks back.

    Downloading… Can’t wait, been waiting form my Bimmercast fix, and a show dedicated to ///M 🙂 What more could I ask for.

    Gabe, you asked in this bimmercast (great show btw) what the name of the M3 GTS’ orange is. It’s called Fire Orange also the same shade available thru Individual.

    • Thanks Adam. Guessing the chances of getting an individual color like FIre on a 1M are pretty slim.

        That would be great if it were for sure.

    Does anyone know the name of the song and artist used at the start and end of this podcast? I listen to a lot of classic rock music and I have never heard this song nor can I put my finger on who it is. Thanks

    • It’s ‘Slow Death’ by the Flamin’ Groovies

        Awesome, thanks Gabe

    I think you guys are pandering to the 6 series. It does not look aggressive. An Austin Martin Vantage looks aggressive. This does not look aggressive. Maybe it looks better than the old one because that one inherited the bustle trunk from the 7 series, but in many ways the old one looked simpler and cleaner than this one.

    It is what it is. They could have made it aggressive looking but they did not. Its not that they made a mistake, its just thats not what they were shooting for, and not what the buyers for this car probably want.
