SCCA SPEED World Challenge touring car team Bimmerworld
Racing kept us entertained all year long with a variety of unique in-car footage from the company's race winning BMW E90s (325i), and have expanded these web videos for us to enjoy. The Virginia-based BMW tuning outfit has been the top BMW team in SPEED TC in 2007, with Joey Hand winning at Mid-Ohio, and drivers Seth Thomas and James Clay frequent visitors to the top-five and the podium. Visit bimmerworldracing.com/europeancar to see the action from inside the team and to learn more about BimmerWorld's BMW street car services.

Bmw 1 Series Convertible - First Look
You Knew It Had To Happen
Two more jewels have been added to the US-bound BMW 1 Series line-up. The 128i Convertible has a 3.0-liter, straight-six with 230 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque, and arrives this spring, along with the hardtop versions. The more powerful 135i Convertible goes on sale later in 2008 and features BMW's lauded twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six, producing 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque from as low as 1400 rpm. The 135i Convertible goes from zero to 62 mph in 5.6 seconds-top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph. With both cars, the electro-hydraulic hood operation takes just 22 seconds-even at speeds up to 25 mph. Bring on the summer.
