96BMW recalling nearly 570,000 1 Series, 3 Series and Z4 models over electrical issue

BMW is recalling roughly 570,000 vehicles in the United States and Canada due to faulty battery cable connectors that can fail, causing the engines in these cars to stall. Of the nearly 570,000 affected vehicles, just over 504,000 are here in the US.

13BMW confirms 1 Series Limited Edition for Detroit reveal

BMW is headed to the 2013 Detroit Auto Show with a new Limited Edition Lifestyle package for the company's 1 Series Coupe and Convertible models. The coupe kit is available in exclusive Mineral White metallic paint or two other colors, along with 18-inch alloy wheels. By comparison, the droptop receives a brown soft top with silver pigment.

60BMW launches 2013 135is coupe and convertible

Let's get one thing straight: We'll never complain about a new BMW 1 Series performance model, and on paper, this new-for-2013 135is sure seems like a total hoot. But you have to understand, we're still mourning the loss of the 1 Series M Coupe, a one-year model that we absolutely fell in love with when it debuted last year. To quote BMW, the 135is is the "top performance model 1 Series for 2013," and awesome as it may be, it just makes the 1M's death seem all the more permanent. Le sigh.

68320-horsepower BMW M135i headlines new three-door 1 Series range

We can now take an official, in-depth look at the new BMW M135i and the accompanying three-door 1 Series range – and there's much to see. Starting from the beginning, the Bimmer's styling has inclined some people to grab their hatchets. Yes, there's a whole lot of intensity and a slumgullion of deeply incised polygons mixed together in that little upright face, but we have no doubt there'll be a whole lot more people grabbing their wallets when they see it.

25BMW M135i recorded racing around the 'Ring

While we've already reported that BMW's M135i concept from Geneva is headed for production, this footage all but confirms it. Britain's Car magazine has over a minute of video showing a rather sporting 1 Series three-door testing at the Nürburgring.

5BMW planning 135i hatch?

The new 2012 BMW 1 Series is making friends hither and yon, but an unsourced report from the Netherlands suggests it might soon be taking no prisoners with the rumored arrival next summer of a 320-horsepower, 135i hatch. Yes, grab your salt and put on your tinfoil hat, because this appears to be the most speculative sort of speculation.

131BMW pulls The Switch on unsuspecting 1 Series owner

We can appreciate a well-orchestrated prank as much as the next guy. But being the car nuts we are, we'd implore any would-be prankster to leave cars out of it. TP the guy's house, Saran-wrap the toilet, make a crank call or two if you must. But for the love of all things holy, please leave the cars alone.

37BMW announces new Power Kits for 135i and 335i

If 300 horsepower is good, 320 horsepower is better. And when that 20-horsepower boost comes at a cost of just $599, it's really a no-brainer as far as we're concerned.

28BMW prices Performance Edition 135i and 335i upgrades for U.S. at just $550

BMW is about to make current and future 1 and 3 Series sedan owners happy. At least, the ones seeking a tick more performance. The automaker is now offering the BMW Performance Edition as a a limited-availability option package on 2011 335i sedans. It will also be made available to existing 135i and 335i customers beginning later in the year.

29BMW teases 2012 1 Series [w/video]

With the 2012 BMW 1 Series nearing its debut, BMW has released a painfully vague teaser image of its next small car. We already have a good indication of the car's five-door shape, thanks to a crack team of spy photographers, but a second version is in the works, and judging by the profile, it's likely a three-door hatch.

13Spy Shots: Is this the 2011/2012 BMW 1 Series?

Fresh pics of what looks to be the next generation BMW 1 Series have been snapped in Germany. If it is the rumored 2011/2012 model, it adheres to the trend of nearly every new car, as it appears to be simultaneously bigger and brawnier all over. It isn't the forthcoming X1 crossover, since a quick look at those two cars side-by-side reveals different ride heights and rooflines, among other things.
