When I was a kid, nothing said ‘I love you’ quite like a romantic mixtape. And now that I’m a little more… ah… mature, nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like feeling young again. In that spirit, what better way to spend this Valentine’s Day than reliving your teenage years with that special someone? If you’re planning a romantic car ride for Valentine’s Day (and you should be, because that’s another dying art), up the nostalgia with a perfectly crafted mixtape. Of course, the fact that nobody uses cassette tapes any more means you’re going to have to be a…

Automotive technology has come of age. Of course, building advanced features into our vehicles is nothing new. Nor is being captivated by what might come next. Whether it's the freeways of Bel Geddes' Futurama or the impressive array of features KITT showed over four seasons of Knight Rider, cars have a way of capturing our imagination like nothing else can. photos: https://www.fastcodesign.com/ and http://www.influx.co.uk/ But something's changed. When BMW says it will produce an autonomous iNext electric car within five years, it's not hope talking. It's expectation. Reality. These aren't utopian dreams any more. They're not neat ideas from sci-fi…

Last month we announced the first BimmerTech Photo Contest. The challenge: to send us a photo of your BMW in a spectacular location. We received so many submissions that it was tough to choose the winners. After much discussion the jury was still gridlocked. Eventually our marketing team took matters into their own hands and made a decision, awarding Malcolm’s photo of his BMW E90 in the Alps, Jay and his BMW X1 on the Australian coast and Gary and his F30 in Hong Kong. The winners received free coding, map updates and great discounts on our products. Winning photos:…

This Year BMW celebrates its 100th birthday. On this occasion, we also asked you to imagine your dream car. Some of you had quite innovative ideas: The best new feature: Self Cleaning Paintwork to restore your car to Showroom Condition after an exhilarating drive through the country. Campbell I’d like to see BMW return to their roots as an Airplane engine manufacturer, creating an entirely new line of hybrid automobile/aircraft. Using the I8 as the basis, include state of the art electrical jet propulsion that would allow for the ultimate driving machine to become the ultimate flying/driving machine.Mike But we…

If there’s anything we all share – it’s a love affair with BMW! And there are as many reasons to love our cars as there are BMW owners. We used Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to share our top 3 reasons with you: 1) There are no bad roads – only opportunities for new driving adventures. 2) It looks good EVERYWHERE. 3) The BMW slogan couldn't be more true. It really is the Ultimate Driving Machine, especially with the BimmerTech upgrades ;) The responses we got back showed us just how head over heels you are! We hope you enjoy…

Recently, we asked you to have a little spooky fun with us by submitting pics of your BMWs with a pumpkin in exchange for discounts on our Rear View Camera and Sirius Satellite Radio. In return, we received a hair-raising number of outstanding photos demonstrating not only your pumpkin carving skills but your creativity in designing a photo even without a pumpkin! Special congratulations to Bill from Connecticut, whose winning submission earned him a little something extra. Check out his photo, presented first, and other spooktacular submissions in our Halloween photo gallery and…thanks for such a terrorific response!

That seemingly random string of numbers printed on your BMW’s dash or on the driver’s side door jamb is more important than you think. Each of the 17 digits actually tells you something specific about your car, from where and when it was built to its feature-set. You can even use it on certain motor vehicle registries to find out whether the car is considered a salvage (repaired after a major wreck) or is listed as stolen. All essential information if you are buying a pre-owned or used car, simply want to do some comparison shopping, or wish to find…
