This week we start off talking about what we ‘re both driving and reviewing starting with the X5 M (hate the transmission, surprisingly love the car) and then moving onto the F10 550i (better in every way over the E60).

Another week means another couple stories worth of 1M rumors and many more details. So we touch on what we expect with the new baby M and when we expect it (hint; it ‘s looking pretty damn good). What about production? Will it be easy to get one? The easy answer is sort of.

We then take some time to recap my recent trip to Munich and BMW ‘s new environmental testing center and talk about what it means for BMW ‘s products and those plastic and swirl clad test cars we ‘ve grown to love.
