Cars of Our Lives – Levante S, M235i Cabrio, 550i Shadowline, 740i, X1, 320i and 440 Gran Coupe

  A bevy of fine-driving BMWs to share in this first-ever installment of a ‘daily gallery’ feature post.  We share MANY more photos on social media than often end up in articles here on the web.  The problem with that is the quality of the pics is greatly decreased.  An image that might be 5MB on phone is about 80kb on facebook.com/carrevsdaily or instagram/car_revs_daily On with the show!  100 or so pics from the last two weeks on my iPhone.  Cars we drove only every-so-briefly…. or not at all in some cases!  The Maserati Levante and upgraded Chevy SS have remained off-limits.  But still fun to find in the wild. Favorites among the BMWs so far?  Surely the i8!!!  Not photographed at all yet.  Soon. Second place?  The 550i is bad-ass gangster and faster than all holy hell.  So nice. New 740i also heavenly. No M3/M4 seat time yet, but …

2016 BMW 340i M Sport and 330d xDrive in 150 New Photos

A big round of updates for the BMW 3 series range! The changes bring new LED lighting front and rear, a PHEV model called 330e, and the new 340i badge to replace the 335i. This update reflects an all-new turbo engine up front. The 3.0-liter inline-six is now dubbed B58 versus the previous N55. The new engine has a just of 20 horsepower up to 320, with a torque mountain of 330-pound-feet coming on from just 1350 RPM. That is one eager motor! The US range includes a 320, 328i or 328d and new 330e featuring plug-in hybrid technology. A new eight-speed automatic is standard across the board, but can be swapped for a manual transmission on all trims. Both are excellent. The huge torque from the flagship 340i creates a very compelling M3 alternative paired to the eight-speed auto. Sprint pace is 4.8-seconds for the 34oi rear-drive, and down …
