This isn't good news, so affected owners should contact their dealers immediately. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued recall campaign number 19V850000, as submitted by BMW on November 27, 2019. The issue? Loss of headlight functionality because of the headlamp control unit that may fail due to a process during its supplier's production. There are only 245 units affected by the said recall: 37 samples of the BMW Z4, 31 units of the 330i and 330i xDrive, and 177 units of the Toyota Supra. Now, before you raise your eyebrows (or giggle) with the fact that BMW submitted the Toyota recall, a Toyota representative has offered an explanation in a previous BMW-issued Supra recall. BMW builds the Supra at its Magna Steyr, Graz Plant in Austria; therefore they do the recall filing with NHTSA.

Guess we'll see more of the BMW EV until the i4 comes. It has been a roller coaster ride for the BMW i3. First, it has been confirmed that the Bavarian marque won't push through in producing the vehicle until 2020. It has also been announced that there won't be a direct successor to the i3. However, BMW's new CEO, Oliver Zipse, then confirmed that the i3 will continue to live on and will get more improvements as well, including a battery pack upgrade.Now, it seems like BMW is dead set in giving the i3 another chance at life – and we now know until when. Gallery: 2018 BMW i3s: First Drive 42 Photos According to a report by Electrive, a BMW spokesperson said that BMW "will continue to build the i3 until 2024," as quoted in a German newspaper Leipziger Volkszeitung.

PGA Tour leaderboard Justin Thomas and Jason Kokrak both equalled the course record with seven-under 65s to top the leaderboard after the first round of the BMW Championship. Tiger Woods had a poor day, though, and finished six off the pace at Medinah Country Club in Illinois. Thomas said he had had a terrible warm-up before the first round. "I mean, I probably would say that I had the worst warm-up I've ever had in my life this morning," he told reporters. "I didn't know what it was going to do. I didn't know how I was going to hit it. My dad [caddie Jimmy Johnson] and I just kind of said that we were going to have to guess out there and just try to find something." He ended the day with seven birdies, a joint course record and joint lead. As well as Thomas and Kokrak, three other players have shot 65 at Medinah: Skip Kendall at the 1999 PGA Championship, and Mike Weir and winner Tiger Woods at the 2006 PGA. … [Read more...] about Golf highlights: Justin Thomas and Jason Kokrak both equal Medinah course record at BMW Championship
Holding out for electrification? Say what you want about BMW's new F40 1 Series, but there's no denying that the model has always been a big hit for the German brand. Responsible for massive sales and platform for some of the most interesting hot hatches from the brand (Yes, we're talking about you, M135i and 1M), the latest generation takes a huge detour, much to the dismay for many diehard BMW fans. Sure, the new architecture and front-wheel drive layout may be a bummer for some, but the added practicality and interior space is welcome for most people, especially since majority of 1 Series buyers can't tell or won't care about the difference between which wheels the power is being sent to. It also seems that there's a rumor going around that BMW is going to keep the F40 1 Series the way it is until the end of its production. How long? Just five years.

Farfus, sinds 2012 BMW DTM-coureur, werd eerder aangesteld als een van de vier seizoensrijders voor het nieuwe WEC GTE Pro-programma. DTM-rookie Eng zal dit seizoen ook een rol spelen in het WEC, en beide coureurs stonden op de inschrijflijst voor de openingsrace op Spa-Francorchamps. Nochtans botst het evenement met de eerste ronde van de DTM op 5-6 mei op Hockenheim en Farfus gaf eerder toe dat hij in een van de twee klassen zijn titelhoop moet 'opofferen' voordat het seizoen begint. BMW heeft nu aangegeven dat de inschrijflijst voorlopig was en dat zowel Farfus als Eng dat weekend in de DTM zullen racen.De drie fulltime WEC-teamgenoten van Farfus, Martin Tomczyk, Nicky Catsburg en Antonio Felix da Costa, werden allemaal bevestigd om in België te racen, maar de vierde coureur moet nog worden benoemd, ondanks het feit dat Alexander Sims ook op de inschrijflijst staat. Een andere DTM-coureur die op de lijst staat is … [Read more...] about Audi- en BMW-rijders in seizoensopener DTM, niet WEC
