BMW G80 M3

2021 BMW G80 M3 Review, Pricing, and Specs

Even though the 2021 BMW G80 M3 has just been introduced to the U.S. market, it has garnered a lot of positive reviews. Like all previous BMWs, the M3 is considered to be the Ultimate Driving Beast. This 6th generation luxury sports vehicle looks fast and expensive, and it is. 

WHAT’S THE G80 M3 LIKE?

First, the frontal face is like most previous BMWs, but the BMW M3 2021 has one unique feature, the twin large grilles do not impart good aesthetics. But aside from the grille, the car is good-looking and comes with the generic rear four large exhaust pipes. For most people, the car still retains its iconic look.

The BMW M3 2021 is much heavier and bigger than many previous M3s. Not only is the wheelbase wider but the car is also longer and weighs in at nearly 3,745 pounds. The M3 comes with a turbocharged 3.0 liter inline-six and an 8 speed ZF automatic transmission that gives it 503Hp. As expected, the car is fast — hitting 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. There is an option for a manual transmission and the 2022 model will come with an all-wheel drive. All M3s also come with an adjustable brake pedal feel and adaptive dampers.

It is on the roads that the M3 excels. The big weight and low center of gravity allows it to round corners gracefully and the thrust is enormous when needed. Even when accelerating, the interior is noiseless. Driving in the city will garner about 16 mpg and 23 mpg on the highways. 

The interior has some new features, like the expensive M Carbon comfortable bucket seats, a carbon-fiber tray, and tons of legroom, but for the most part, the M3 has essentially the same visibility, infotainment center, passenger space, and comfort as the regular 3 series. The BMW G80 M3 also has standard and several optional driver safety assistance packages.

Overall, the BMW GO M3 is a fun car to drive. Aside from the large unsightly grille, it has ample power, offers a comfortable ride, and reigns supreme on curves.

WHAT IS THE COST OF THE BMW M3 2021?

The base price for the car is around $74K but there are many expensive options available, like the carbon-ceramic brakes, the interior carbon trim, and carbon roof, which, if purchased, the options could cost another $30K.  You would be looking at a total car price, with options, that is nearly $100K. But in the end, this is a high-end luxury BMW M3 2021, after all.

2021 BWM 4 Series Convertible Prices, Reviews, and Specifications

The 2021 BMW 4 Series Convertible is one of the most beautiful cars this company has ever produced. With a fabric top that replaces previous models’ hard top, it’s been available since March, and with BMW 4 Series convertible prices starting at just over $54,000, it’s certainly one you’ll want to consider. 

Does a Fabric Top Change Everything? 

The biggest conversation around this model is the fabric convertible top. Many people look for a beautiful convertible because they’re easily the most romantic cars on the market today, and it’s not hard to see why BMW moved from the more traditional hard top to this one. When it’s closed, it creates a beautiful level of elegance that the hard top couldn’t match. Where the hard top created a trunk bulge, the fabric top is easy to manage, looks great, and doesn’t take up as much luggage space. More than that, though, it contributes to the weight of this car, which is 40% lighter. It’s incredibly easy to use, too, as it opens within 18 seconds. 

The Specs

If the fabric top isn’t enough to sell you on this model, the specs will be. This model sits on a longer wheelbase, so it’s a bit bigger than previous versions overall. The interior is reminiscent of the 3-series, so you’ll see plenty of room in both the front and the rear, so if you’re looking for an extended road trip in this vehicle, you certainly have the space to do it. 

Agility and responsiveness help to define this car thanks to its lower center of gravity. It’s as much fun to drive as any of their sedan models, too, despite the open-top change. 

Choose from two different engines with this, a four cylinder or a straight-six. The 2.0 liter 4 cylinder offers 255 hp and 295 lb/ft of torque. The 3.0 liter straight six, though, offers quite a bit more coming in at 382 hp and 369 lb/ft of torque. Either is available in all-wheel drive or rear wheel drive models. 

Naturally, you’ll find the infotainment system that comes standard with all BMW models inside as well as connectivity to both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can also choose to integrate a head-up display. 

The Reviews

Reviewers are almost giddy about this model thanks to the fabric top and the specs. Most celebrate the sporty handling the convertible has to offer, as well as the addition of extra cargo space thanks to the fabric top. They also cite the responsive nature of the vehicle across the entire 4-series. It’s one of the sportiest vehicles on the market today, and reviewers love that level of fun it offers. 

What to Expect In Terms of Pricing

Pricing on these models starts at $54,095, but should you choose to go with the M440i version, you’ll pay $66,995 for the upgrade. You can also choose to further upgrade to an all-wheel drive for another $2,000.

2022 BMW 7 Series New Luxurious Electric Car

2022 BMW 7-Series Review, Pricing, and Specs

The 2022 BMW 7-Series is a top-of-the-line luxury vehicle, but it has one feature the others just can’t match – a much bigger space.

Developed primarily for comfort and luxury, it has more than met the expectations of enthusiasts.

The Very Definition of a Smooth Ride

Like all BMWs, the 7-Series has a plush interior with beautiful aesthetics that resonate with everything you might expect from this brand.

The inside is spacious with a huge trunk that can carry your golf bag plus 2-3 suitcases. Some of the options include remote-control parking and the Driving Assistance Professional package with several safety features including a lane departure warning.

The 7-Series infotainment is much improved and comes with a responsive touch screen and manual knobs.

The state of art system also recognizes certain hand commands. Besides the Bluetooth connectivity, there is an option of a Samsung tablet with a dock between the rear seats.

Apple Carplay is now standard in every BMW as well. It also comes with a Bowers & Wilkins audio system.

Real Power Combines with Solid Fuel Economy

BMW designers have kept changes to a minimum with the 2022 7-Series. Most of the mechanical and functional systems remain unchanged from 2021, but many options are available.

Some of the standard features of the 7-Series will include flush door handles, soft closing doors, air suspension.

The 2022 BMW 7-Series comes with a turbocharged inline 6 cylinder engine which provides ample power if needed.

Even though the car is muscular and bold, it is extraordinarily smooth and quiet. On the road, the 2022 BMW 7-Series has excellent handling and grips the terrain like a magnet when going round the corners

Despite being a big luxury car, the 7-Series does have a decent fuel economy averaging about 30mpg on the highways.

However, the 745e plug-in hybrid that uses a 12.0 kWh battery pack only provides 17 miles of electric driving. However, the battery can be rapidly recharged with the pack located in the trunk.

What You Can Expect In The BMW M760 Price

The base price for the 2022 BMW series 7 is $87,797 and this is slightly lower than some of its competitors like Mercedes and Audi, which have starting prices at around $100K. Along with that, though, BMW provides a 3-year or 36 000 miles complimentary maintenance plan for all 7-Series vehicles. 

Production of the 2022 BMW 7-Series is slated to start early in 2022 and dealerships should be receiving the cars by autumn. Consider reserving yours now.

2021 BMW M4 Convertible

BMW M4 Convertible Will Go on Sale Before Summer

After a long wait, the BMW M4 convertible will finally be on the market sometime during the summer. If you have been waiting to cruise with a sleek car during the summer, you will only have to wait a few more months. The exact details of what the M4 convertible will offer remain to be seen but here is what is known. 

Some of the features of the M4 convertible include a twin-turbocharged 3.0 liter 6 cylinder with 473 hp. The vehicle will be available with an 8-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission. As with all BMWs, rear-wheel drive is a standard, but an all-wheel drive will be an option.

The M4 drop-top will come with a much softer roof fabric compared to previous models. Being lighter, the roof will close in less than 20 seconds.

One key feature about the M4 convertible is the larger kidney grille, a newer design that differentiates it from the coupe counterpart.

2021 BMW M4 Convertible – The Exterior

The exterior of the M4 convertible is similar to the M4 coupe. The few major differences include the sleek kidney grilles, exotic rear and front bumpers, and stylish LED headlights. The 18-inch alloy wheels come with flared fenders and the signature quad tailpipes.

Being slightly lighter and less rigid, the M4 convertible will offer a much smoother ride on all terrains and is expected to handle well around corners and steep descents.

2021 BMW M4 – Interior Space

The M4 convertible is a decent size 4-seater with ample legroom for all adults. The driver has the additional luxury of the 14-way power-adjustable M sports seat. Overall, there is adequate legroom and ample space between the roof and the head. With ample rear room for seating, a compromise has been made in the cargo space, but this can be increased by folding the rear seats.

As with all BMWs, the M4 convertible has a decent list of standard features, including three-stage heated lumbar support seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, keyless entry, several collisions warnings, rearview camera, and a state-of-the-art infotainment system. An upgrade is available that includes a heads-up display, surround-view cameras, and a parking assistant.

If you can afford a BMW, then the least of your concerns is the gas mileage. But the M4 convertible does offer decent figures. The manual transmission offers 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. However, the automatic redeems this with figures of 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highways.

While the exact price has not been announced, the starting price of the 2021 BMW M4 convertible will be around $74K.

2021 BMW 4 Series

Audi A5 vs BMW 4 Series

If you had the money, which coupe would you buy? The BMW 4 Series or the Audi A5? Read on for the comparisons between the two vehicles.

Audi A5 vs BMW 4 Series

First, both cars have good aesthetics and have established themselves as reliable vehicles. Both vehicles are considered luxury cars that will put a smile on your face while driving.

The Audi A5 is an ultramodern Sportback with features of a hatchback complete with five doors. The BMW 4 Series has a reputation of excellent handling around corners. Which car is the right one for you?

Performance

When comparing the Audi A5 vs. BMW 4 series, both vehicles are stylish and functional, which means that you will be able to use the car for both short and long journeys without any compromise in comfort, speed, or power.

Both may appear slightly small on the exterior, but the interior is roomy with ample space for luggage in the trunk. Both cars come with a powerful 2.0-liter diesel engine with a four-wheel drive.

While both cars have matching acceleration, the one difference is that the A5 has a rapidly shifting 7-speed automatic transmission, whereas the BMW 4 Series has a sturdy 6-speed manual transmission.

There is an option to have an 8-speed automatic transmission in the 4 series for a few extra dollars, which results in smoother and improved performance. On-road performance between the two is similar with the series 4 showing better handling around corners.

For long-distance driving, the A5 is a great cruiser for comfort and also has a much quieter engine.

Interior

The interior of both cars are similar; the controls are all within easy reach, but the A5 does feel more luxurious, whereas the Series 4 has a more modern design with a compact dashboard, precise-feeling switches, and modern trim.

The infotainment system in both cars is user-friendly but the Series 4 doesn’t offer Android auto smartphone or Apple car play features, which are standard on the A5.

The series 4 has slightly more legroom in the rear, but the A5 has more headspace and a larger space under the front seat.

Cost

When comparing the Audi A5 vs. BMW 4 series for cost, there is not much difference. Between the two, the Audi is perhaps a few hundred dollars more expensive.

Overall, the decision to buy an A5 or a series 4 is strictly based on personal preferences. Both cars offer good value, are reliable, and hold good value even as used cars.

M3 vs M4: What’s the Difference?

What’s not to like about either of these beauties?  Nothing.  These BMW models are two of the most iconic in the manufacturer’s lineup.  The design engineers headed both cars into a daring and courageous new direction for 2021.  The biggest difference is that one is a sedan and the other is a couple.  There are a few subtle differences, as well, but not many.

2020 BMW M3

The 2020 BMW M3 sedan was proudly unveiled alongside the M4 coupe in the fall of 2020.  Both have BMW’s straight-six, twin-turbo, 3.0-liter engine that comes online with a horsepower of 473 for the regular model and 503 hp (375 kW) in the Competition series.  The Competition model can go from 0 to 60 in four seconds.  Starting prices for the 2020 M3 sedan is $69,900, while the Competition M3 model starts at $72,800.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE M3 AND THE M4

It might be hard to tell the difference between the M3 and the M4 – they are very nearly identical.  The M3 is a sedan and would probably serve a family better than the M4 coupe.  If you don’t have kids you need to transport from place to place, the M4 might suit your style a little bit better as it’s a tad more like a sports car.  The difference between the M3 and the M4 also includes a hairline difference in suspension settings with the M3 having an extra 23kg.  The coupe is also 80mm wider than the sedan.

WHAT IS SIMILAR BETWEEN THE M3 AND THE M4?

Nearly everything.  The sixth generation of these models with their striking looks added large dual “kidney” grills get your attention right away, being upfront and center in their aesthetically pleasing appearance.  Both versions of the car have chasses that are nearly identical (F80/F82).  Cost between the two is very similar as are the interior, components in the cars, safety features, and mechanics.  Both cars have a carbon fiber roof (you can get an optional moonroof at no additional cost), front and side-splitters that are M-specific, and wheels that are staggered (front 18s; back 19s).  The Competition model has 19-inch front wheels, while the back wheels are 20 inches.

The bottom line is that you can’t go wrong with either version of the stunning car.  Check them out in person today.

The Best Time to Buy Your Next Luxury Vehicle Is Now

If you’re shopping for a vehicle, you may wonder exactly when is the best time to buy a car. It’s a tough call, especially if you’re interested in upgrading to your next luxury vehicle. There actually are good and bad times to buy a vehicle, though, and understanding the best time to buy a car is key before you make a purchase.

Why Does Timing Matter?

Wondering why it matters when you buy a car? Entire brands and dealerships alike offer deals that benefit customers when they shop at certain times of the year. Incentives are developed around certain times of the year. Sometimes you’ll find brands offering bonuses like 0% APR or no payments for a few months to help push customers to buy. Being aware of those incentives means an incredible bonus when you get ready to make a purchase. 

Time of the year also matters because of dealer inventory. Many dealers have to make room for upcoming models as they approach the end of the year, and once the year turns over, they really want to get rid of those previous year models, as they need physical space for new models

It’s not just the time of the year, though. Instead, the time of the month matters too. Dealerships often have quotas they want to meet on a month by month basis, making that final day of the month incredibly important. Even the day of the week matters. A recent study found that Monday proves to typically be the best day of the week to shop because it offers great savings to customers who didn’t quite make it in over the weekend to reap the weekend deals. 

This Year Has Changed Everything

While there have always been conventional “good times” to buy a car, this year has changed absolutely everything thanks to the pandemic. Auto sales fell incredibly during the shutdowns, and consumer confidence is very low. Fortunately, low interest and zero-percent APR deals, though, remain plentiful, so brands and dealerships alike are doing what they can to entice customers like you to purchase now. Special offers are likely to continue as the pandemic does so that individuals who are ready to purchase should do so absolutely immediately. Moreover, dealerships are offering added ways to shop so that pandemic precautions can still be taken while shopping for the luxury car of your choice. 

The best time to buy your next luxury vehicle is right now. Don’t miss this opportunity.
