Oxigin BMW X4 2014 Front Dynamic Duo: Sports Activity Coupe BMW X4 with Oxigin 18 ConcaveBMW recently expanded its continually growing X model series with a second Sports Activity Coupé with the brand-new X4, giving the huge X6 a “little” brother.

The wheel rim specialists from Oxigin Leichtmetallräder from Swabian Unterensingen equipped the off-roader with the coupé-like roof line with their current rim design “18 Concave” briefly after its market introduction: the dimensions 9×21 inch with 245/35ZR21 at the front and 10.5×21 inch with 285/30ZR21 at the rear axle fit the X4 perfectly. In these dimensions, the strong concaveness of the large one-parters, at 45 millimetres in front and as much as 67 millimetres in the back is clearly visible. (more…)

BMW F83 M4 Limerock Special Edition 2014 Front 2014 BMW F83 M4 Limerock Special EditionBack in 2013, BMW decided to celebrate the imminent demise of the E92 M3 with a couple of special edition models. Amongst them was one called the Lime Rock Park Edition. Only 200 were ever made and all of them were sent to the US. Could BMW do the same trick with the new M4?

Judging by the plates and the Texas flag on the boot lid, we’d be tempted to say it was in Dallas, at the Plano’s Classic dealership but we’re yet to confirm that information. (more…)
