bmw new 730 2010 750 760
The 2010 BMW 7-Series lineup gains available all-wheel drive, a new top-end model, and a gas/electric hybrid version following its redesign for the 2009 model year. Conventional 7-Series models include the 750i and 750Li, each with rear-wheel drive. New for 2010 are the AWD 750i xDrive and 750Li xDrive. A new top-end rear-drive 760Li is due later in model-year 2010. The "L" versions of BMW's flagship sedan ride on a wheelbase that is 5.5-inches longer than that of the 750i. All 750i cars are powered by a 400-hp 4.4-liter twin turbocharged V8. A 6-speed automatic transmission is standard. The ActiveHybrid 7 pairs a 4.4-liter V8 engine with an electric motor for 455 hp total. The hybrid system can shut off the gas engine at a stop, but the car is unable to accelerate solely on battery power. No plug-in charging is required. The hybrid uses an 8-speed automatic transmission. The 760Li has a turbocharged 544-hp 6.0-liter V12 engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission. Available safety features include ABS, traction control, antiskid system, front and rear side airbags, knee airbags, and curtain side airbags. BMW's Active Roll Stabilization, designed to counter body lean, should remain part of the optional Sport Package, along with BMW's new Integral Active Steering, which adds speed-sensitive rear-wheel steering to BMW's Active Steering system. Also standard should be BMW's Dynamic Driving Control, which allows the driver to adjust the suspension, throttle response, transmission's shift characteristics, and power steering. A navigation system and wireless cell-phone link should remain standard along with the new version of BMW's iDrive control for audio, navigation, and climate settings. All models continue to include steering-linked headlights, front- and rear-obstacle detection, and BMW Assist emergency and concierge service. Other features that should return on the 2010 7-Series include blind-spot alert, lane-departure warning, a head-up display, sideview and rearview cameras, and high beams that automatically dim when oncoming traffic is detected. Also offered should be a 40-gigabyte hard drive for the audio and navigation systems, which allows for storage of up to 13 gigabytes of music files. A night-vision system, adaptive cruise control, DVD entertainment, and keyless access and engine start should return. This report is based on evaluations of the 2009 BMW 7-Series.
BMW i8 - For the pseudo-environmentalist billionaire in every one of us
I was thoroughly underwhelmed by BMW's latest concept on show at the Auckland Museum today.
It has similar hybrid technology but a lower all-electric range than a Chevrolet Volt, yet it costs $270,000 USD more.
Or think of it as an all-electric Tesla Roadster, but with less range, less power, less acceleration, less style, less reliability - but with higher emissions, and at twice the price.
The styling is a personal thing, but I found it too weird to gain mass-acceptance. Perhaps thankfully, the finished product will look completely different.
Still, God only knows what market this car is aimed at. Even so, by 2014 (when this vehicle is ready for production) the competition will have soared ahead with more practical, long-range all-electric vehicles.
For example, the Tesla Model S is a visual masterpiece with an all electric range of 300 miles (482 kilometres) - and full-scale production starts in August 2012.
You'd better think fast BMW.

BMW OBC Test 2 (Redone)
I took out my DV Camera for it this time, it's a much better quality vid.
Here's some general information about it:
This is my 2001 e39 BMW 520i, 2.2L I6, ~170bhp and its done ~70,000kms. Bought at 65,000kms.
More information about these cool OBC tests can be found at:
(Disregard the fact it says 540, it works on all e39 models, obviously). For the e39 community: Do try these yourself, they can tell you a lot about your BMW.
I recorded the most entertaining test, the Dashboard test (Test 2). Enjoy.
