Exclusive: Latest news on the 2009 7 Series, X5 M and 3 Series Facelift

News | April 15th, 2008 by 10

As I have promised many times before, BMW Blog is here to bring you the latest exclusive news from Munich. Last week, we had some breaking news on the 4 Cylinder twin-turbo and especially, the 2009 BMW Z4 with the optional soft or hardtop.

Our friends at Autoblog, Jalopnik, Autospies and many other large car blogs have been supportive and they helped us share the news with all the car lovers out there. For that, I would like to thank everyone that linked to our articles.

Yesterday, I was reading an article on the upcoming 2009 BMW 7 Series, which apparently will be featuring an 8 Speed transmission. Even though it's not really latest news, many car blogs have reported that last year, it was still a nice reminder for all the bimmer fans out there.

Today, I have something even better for you. The same 2009 BMW 7 Series will have four wheel steering as optional extra. Now that's something to be excited about that.

Next, let's focus a bit on the 3 Series facelift that will probably be released by the end of this year. Here are some of the things we have learned about the facelifted 3er's.

  • inside got a bit more "chromy"
  • larger mirrors like the c-class
  • the air scoop at the front is a bit like the five series.. turned up instead of down

Let's move next to the BMW X5 M, which we have already announced a while back that it won't be named M. The X5 will be a 4.8L with a twin-turbo engine and it will include an upgraded suspension.

That's it for now, we'll be back soon with more exclusive news. But in the mean time, if you would like us to keep you updated on all the BMW news, please take a moment and sign up for our email feed. Get updates by email
