2012 BMW X3 SUV Road Test & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/bmw/x3/2012/?id=32972 With its new features, the 2012 BMW X3 is definitely at the top of the mid-sized luxury SUV segment. The X3 continues to set the bar that other luxury SUV companies must live up to. The 2012 BMW X3 has a couple advantages over the rest of the pack. It drives and rides exceptionally well, it is fuel efficient, and the power is quite acceptable. But most importantly the X3 is a pleasure to drive. There are 2 different models of the 2012 BMW X3 Luxury SUV. The first is the xDriver28i and the second is the xDrive35i. The main difference is the type of engine in each. The 2012 BMW xDrive28i costs $36,850 and has a 3-liter inline-6 engine that puts out 240 horsepower and gets 19 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway. The 2012 BMW xDrive35i costs $42,500 and is powered by a turbo version of the same engine in the xDrive28i with output being 300 horsepower. There is an 8-speed transmission present that helps the xDrive35i get 19 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway. On the inside the driving position is excellent. There is plenty of headroom despite the optional sunroof. One surprising factor is the amount of legroom present on this a mid-sized SUV. The steering wheel tilts and telescopes, allows great flexibility and the front seats are comfortable and offer good side support. The dashboard displays finely crafted wood accents. The 2012 BMW X3 comes loaded with a lot of great luxury features and options.

2012 Porsche Panamera Test Drive & Luxury Sports Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/porsche/panamera/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Porsche Panamera is an interesting combination of automotive delicacies. The Panamera is one part sports car, one part luxury car, one part hatchback, and one part sedan. Over the past decade, Porsche has created a few unique vehicles to target a broad range of car buyers. The Boxster is aimed at the entry level sports car enthusiast while the Cayenne is aimed at those looking for a quick SUV. But the Panamera offers 911 performance with a usable back seat. The 2012 Porsche Panamera can range from $75,200 for the base model all the way to $173,200 for the top of the line turbo S model. The vehicle tested in this video is the base model Panamera 4 (AWD). It is powered by a lightweight and direct injected 3.6 liter V-6 engine that makes 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is the famous PDK twin-cutch 7-speed unit that shifts lighting quick. Fuel economy on the 2012 Porsche Panamera is 18 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway thanks in part to an auto start/stop system which shuts down the engine while the car is sitting idle. Sixty MPH flies by in 5.8 seconds and the Panamera 4 has a top speed of 159 MPH. The Panamera handles incredibly well thanks to the Porsche Traction Management system. The AWD monitors driving situations and can adjust power as need. The Panamera is equipped with Anti-Slip Regulation and Automatic Brake Differential. Porsche Active Suspension Management is optional on the Panamera 4. This system provides electronic dampening at all 4 corners of the car thus reducing body roll and increasing handling. The system will also tighten up the setting based on the selection of modes: Comfort, Sport, and Sport Plus. The rims are 18-inch alloys wrapped in sticky rubber. The 2012 Porsche Panamera comes with huge 360 mm brakes up front and 330 mm brakes out back. The calipers are six-piston units. Safety wise besides all the electronic computer controlled systems, the Panamera 4 features a full compliment of 2-stage airbags for both the front and rear passengers. With the rear seats up the Panamera has a luggage compartment with over 15 cubic feet of storage space. But with he seats down the hatchback design allows for over 44 cubic feet of cargo room which is a large amount for this segment. And believe it or not the 2012 Porsche Panamera can tow up to 4850 lbs. The Panamera is a very efficient and powerful sports car that offers a high level of luxury and sophistication while being able to transport 4 passengers in style.

Test it! The BMW 5-series GT | drive it
The BMW 5-series Gran Turismo was a real eye-catcher at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in 2009, and it is still getting looks now.From a technical standpoint, the luxury hatchback's design has been derived from BMW's 5- and 7-series, but it still has distinguished looks that catch the eye. The world had never seen a BMW 5-series like this one. It was the first BMW model to have side windows without frames. A spacious interior means that the car is very comfortable, and the back seats can even be moved as much as 10 centimeters. The hatchback opens in two different ways, depending on what must go into it. Drive it! took this little diesel, the 530d, out for a spin.

BMW 5 Series GT 2013 review - CarBuyer
BMW 5 GT 2014 full review: http://bit.ly/wBlyd3 Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb The BMW 5 Series GT was supposedly a car designed without compromise -- to offer the space of a 7 Series but the dynamics of a 5 Series. However, in reality, the cumbersome BMW doesn't drive very well and has a smaller boot than the 5 Series saloon. From the back seats, though, it offers unrivalled comfort and a commanding view of the road -- and if you opt for the four-seat Executive package, you get a pair of reclining rear seats allowing ultimate comfort on longer journeys. Looks divide opinion, and even in sporty M Sport trim the boxy dimensions and high roofline look awkward. Avoid the large petrol motors, though, and the 5 GT should be relatively affordable to run.

BMW 550i GranTurismo GT--Video Test Drive with Chris Moran from Chicago Motor Cars
http://www.SupercarNetwork.com A promotional pilot we filmed with help from Elmhurst BMW. This is the BMW 550i GT with Chris Moran from Chicago Motor Cars The unusually shaped BMW 550i Gran Turismo provides incredible long-distance touring comfort for four passengers. It's like being in a private jet, especially if you order the business class seating in back, then pile on the entertainment and driver assistance options. Costs like a private jet, too. Between BMW's two hatchback-like recent offerings, the 550i GT is the better vehicle than the two-year-old BMW X6. The GT will be even more desirable once BMW in the spring adds versions with a 300-hp six-cylinder engine and with all-wheel-drive. Only two things require acclimatization: the view from the outside looking at the side and rear, and the view from inside looking out the rear window. I put nearly 1,000 effortless miles on the 550i GT in a long, single-day trip down the Eastern seaboard during a gloomy, damp winter day and night, the kind of day that inspired Edward George Bulwer-Lytton to take pen in hand and proclaim, "It was a dark and stormy night." With a price starting at $65,275 and topping $90,000, the 550i GT represents excess, just not Bulwer-Lytton's wretched excess. Virtually every one of the $1,000-here, $2,500-there options has a reason for being in the car. As with other high end BMWs, there are more than a dozen entertainment, performance, driver assistance, and pampering options. For the comfortably affluent car fanatic, I cannot imagine a better vehicle for hauling four adults and their luggage long distances. An Acura ZDX, Audi Q7, BMW X5 / X6, Porsche Cayenne or Panamera, Lexus LX 570, Cadillac Escalade, or Infiniti QX56 all lack that ultimate luxury of rear seat comfort equal to the front seat. Great for the Driver Slide behind the wheel and you're in the best seat in the house. Vision systems help you in front (night vision, parking sonar, swiveling xenon headlamps), in back (backup camera, parking sonar), and to the side (side cameras, lane departure warning, blind spot detection). A $1,300 head-up display (photo left) puts only the most important information in a virtual window at the base of the windshield, reducing driver distraction. The $4,200 sport package helps the car bank through turns and the suspension and drivetrain can be set for comfort, normal, or sport-calibrated ride. So you order the sport package if you want the best ride, not just sportiest, ride. Navigation comes standard, on a 10.2-inch 1280 x 480 display that can be split to show, say, navigation and entertainment details. The current iDrive cockpit controller is much easier to master. Order the $1,950 premium seats and you get a massage feature that raises and lowers the left and right seat bottom halves just enough to keep your butt from falling asleep. The $1,750 active steering package changes the steering ratio at low speed for easier parking lot maneuvers and the rear wheels also steer slightly, opposite the front wheels at low speed for sharper turns, same direction as the front wheels at high speed for smoother lane changes. The engine is a 400-hp twin-turbo V8 with an eight-speed automatic transmission (BMW's first). It gets to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds and passes most everything on the highway except gas stations. On my mostly highway trip I got 21 mpg and saw 23 mpg level-ground cruising at 70 mph; the EPA rating is 15 mpg city, 21 mph highway, using premium fuel. That's not bad, but the coming 300-hp six will still be cat quick and probably manage 25 mpg loping along the interstate, and you won't get the feeling, "Maybe we should top off the tank," at every bathroom break. While it's not a hybrid, there is a brake energy regeneration system. The oversize battery is charged primarily by power generated when you apply the brakes. This is part of what BMW calls Efficient Dynamics.

2011 BMW 535i GT Start-Up and Full Vehicle Tour
A beautiful car in person, I spotted this 2011 F07 BMW 535i GT at the local BMW showroom yesterday. I asked a friend whether I could take a video of it, and he said ok. It was about to go into the showroom that evening. This is the only 5 GT model available in Malaysia, and it's priced at RM638,800. This is about RM40,000 more expensive than the F10 BMW 535i saloon that is priced at RM598,800. A few things I didn't show in the video; Powered driver and front passenger seats with two person memory seating. Powered tilt and telescopic steering wheel. Navigation screen (I only showed the radio). There is a button above the bonnet release inside the car to open the boot. The AUX and USB ports in the centre glovebox.

BMW 5 Series E39 Best car ever made
The BMW E39 is the BMW 5 Series made between 1995 and 2003. The E39 was the successor of the BMW E34 in 1995, and was replaced by the E60 in 2003. Sales to Germany and most of Western Europe began in 1995, and by 1996 sales to the rest of the world had commenced. A mid-generational refresh appeared in 2000, featuring minute detail changes. At launch, the base model was the 520i, which developed 112 kilowatts (150 hp) in the pre-update models, and 126 kilowatts (170 hp) in later models. An M5 variant was introduced in 1998, with a 4.9-litre S62 V8 engine. All models but the M5 were available as either a saloon or an estate, the latter called Touring.
