It ‘s time for our annual look back at the year that was with a look ahead to what ‘s coming. As we ‘ve mentioned previously 2012 was a huge year for BMW. We look back and ahead at the following:

  • The BMW ActiveHybrids (5 and 3 Series) and why they sell in small numbers
  • F30 3 Series – the biggest launch of 2012
  • The proliferation of xDrive
  • M5 and M6 finally launched in the US
  • M6 Gran Coupe – the best looking BMW made?
  • M135i – a look ahead at the M235i
  • Driving the M3 CRT and why it may be the best M3 ever
  • The classic beauty that is the Z4 and why there ‘s no MZ435i
  • BMWi launch and how it will change the brand
  • Six Diesels in the US for 2013
  • M325i – coming sooner than you may think
  • The final production form of the 4 Series

Jam packed to say the least. Also please note that to record this show in time for the new year it was recorded “on the road ” so to speak. So the quality isn ‘t as good as the last few shows.

    Any chance that BMW will produce a 1 series with the same engine that’s in the 320i? This truly would be an entry level model and open up the brand to a whole new audience.
