Thanksgiving Bimmer news.
 
Z4 production moves to Germany for the 2009/10 model year.

All X production (X3/X5/X6) will take place in the US.

M Division is still not sold on run-flats for their performance needs so no RFT for M.

X6 will be referred to as a CAV (crossover activity vehicle).

BMW is planning a small Xer to challenge the RAV4 (why??)

2008, expect the 335d and 535d.

Keep an eye out for a Z6 in 2009/10.

BMW & AUDI have teamed up to attempt to unseat SH-AWD by Honda as the best AWD system.

Speculation of a V12 (yes twelve cylinders) for the X series.

Roundel guys are getting old and not doing their homework lately, so I don't believe all of what they say. CAV :rofl: Some are just their guesses or their wishes.:rofl:

And if its built in south america they will call it CHAVEZ. :rofl:

Its called SAC(Sports Activity Coupé) by BMW. CAV is Roundel's creation. I have not heard any reference to CAV by BMW yet. See PDF attached below.

Since when is Honda's SH-AWD the best AWD system? Any truth to this?

Wagner 11-22-2007 05:02 PM

Roundel has always given SH-AWD the nod especially in RDX/X3 and MDX/X5 comparisons.

As of now, I think it's the only yaw-control capable AWD system.
