16Much of BMW 2011 lineup gets new single turbo six with 7% better efficiency

Much of BMW's U.S. market lineup is making the switch to a 2011 model year designation early this spring with the highlight being a new version of the 3.0-liter inline-six cylinder engine dubbed N55.

To many people, Audi is replacing BMW as the go-to yuppie-mobile of choice. For one thing, Walter de'Silva's designs are almost universally lauded (Q7 notwithstanding) whereas the new crop of Bangled Bimmers are... controversial to put it as nicely as humanly possible.

13Dinan gets around to offering ECU upgrade for BMW's 335i

Dinan, renowned tuners of all things from the propeller people, have finally decided to offer an ECU upgrade for owners of BMW's delectable 335i. The reflashed upgrade necessitates the installation of either BMW's or Dinan's oil cooler, but once the Bimmer's brain is reprogrammed, throttle response is sharpened, the top-speed governor is removed and power levels jump to 384 hp at 5,700 rpm and a kidney pummeling 421 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,300 rpm.
