Now on sale in several major markets around the world including Europe, the BMW 5 Series (G30) heralds the arrival of the new seventh generation and represents a whole new level of luxury and comfort. Of course, the BMW 5 Series is now beginning to arrive at key markets around the world, including the city of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

In charge of sales and after-market of BMW vehicles in this city is BMW Abu Dhabi Motors, which is incidentally, the luxury carmaker’s largest dealership in the world. Just recently, BMW Abu Dhabi Motors has announced on its Facebook page the arrival of the new generation of the 5 Series into its showroom. To announce the arrival of the 5 Series into its fold, BMW Abu Dhabi Motors posted 27 images of the luxury sedan, which came in the guise of the BMW 540i Sport Line.

As we know, BMW will be offering the new 2017 BMW 5 Series in two Line packages at launch -- Luxury Line and Sport Line. The Luxury Line for the 5 Series further accentuates the luxurious and opulent nature of the vehicle chrome exterior accents.

Signal Green BMW M4 (F82) Coupe with M Performance kit is radioactive enough to grab attention

For a BMW M3 or M4 stand out from a crowd of sports and high-performance cars, it needs to be unusually stunning and outrageously weird. Of course, it would be hard for a BMW M4 (F82) Coupe to stand out when there are hotter supercars around. For an M4 Coupe to do that, it needs more than just being red hot, it has to be radioactive green.

This is how a BMW M4 Coupe is dressed up as displayed at BMW’s showroom in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. It is finished in a color – called as Signal Green -- that is seemingly picked out from the color palette of the mutant character Incredible Hulk, whose leafy shade is owned to his exposure to radiation. Most of the exterior parts and sections of this special M4 Coupe is wrapped in Signal, with the rest finished in black. From the front bumper and its muscular bonnet, through its side panels and pillars, to its rear decklid and rear fascia, this M4 Coupe is finished in Signal Green.

Aside from its radioactive finish, this Signal Green BMW M4 Coupe is provided with a number of optional elements derived from the parts and accessory catalogue of M Performance. These optional elements include the M Performance kit with a number of components made from carbon fiber, yellow brake calipers as seen through the wheels, as well as an Akrapovic exhaust system.

Seen in Abu Dhabi: BMW M550i xDrive is decked out with M Performance body kit, brown leather interior

If you have driven, or at least heard of the BMW M550i’s performance specs, you will definitely be blown away, as it can hit the 60 miles per hour sprint in under four seconds, with its 4.4 liter, twin turbo V8 engine. This engine lets the vehicle carry out 456 horsepower and 480 pound feet of torque of tap, which also makes it half a second quicker than the previous M5 that is actually equipped with the same engine.

Now, we already know that the new M5 is the perfect car for people who enjoy driving crazy powerful cars, and with all its power, it barely needs any upgrade. But looking at this machine sometimes makes you think of what more can it give.

Well, if you happen to be in the area, you might want to head out to the world’s largest BMW dealership located in the Persian Gulf emirate of Abu Dhabi. Because that is where you will find this brand-new M550i xDrive.

Ruby Black Metallic BMW 730Li is presented in Abu Dhabi

This BMW 7 Series in the 730Li spec features a 2.0 liter four cylinder power unit. It also gets a longer wheelbase and that means that it is heavier and will tax its engine even more. This particular model we are talking about today can be found in the BMW Abu Dhabi Motors dealership and is finished in a beautiful Ruby Black Metallic finish.

Exterior upgrades that come with it include a 3D Design front spoiler, an M Performance trunk lid spoiler, and an M Performance kidney grille. And we are quite sure you noticed the new set of wheels it sits on as they measure 21 inches in diameter, and have been finished in an orbit grey shade.

As you move into the car’s interior, there are clear signs that this had been made by the automaker’s BMW Individual division. Red leather covers the seats, the door panels and part of the center console and the bottom part of the dashboard.

If you are looking for an awesome car, look no further than the BMW M4. But if you want something more exclusive than that, then you can opt for the Alpina-tuned 4 Series as this will definitely turn heads wherever you go.

Alpina has prepared a kit that isn’t just about the car’s looks as its performance will also be given a boost albeit, not by much. It gets a raise of 9 PS (9 horsepower) and 56 Newton metres (41 pound feet) of torque. The Alpina B4 S Bi Turbo carries out a little more power than the stock M4, thanks to its straight-six 3.0 liter engine. That may not sound a lot, but overall, that totals to an impressive number of 440 PS (434 HP) and 660 Nm (487 pound-feet) of torque in a wide speed range from 5,500 to 6,250 rpm.

For those of you who are interested in this Alpina tuned 4 Series, the white model is on display at BMW Abu Dhabi dealership. The special body kit comes with a custom front splitter, side skirts, and boot lid spoiler. It also has multi-spoke alloys and blue calipers, plus decals from the tuner.

Those of you who have been to the Middle East are probably used to seeing flashy cars. And when I say flashy cars, I don’t just mean expensive models, but I’m specifically talking about the colours painted on them and the interesting interiors they have. A handful of these cars are from BMW and their dealership in Abu Dhabi.

The newest one that made headlines would be the BMW 750Li. Though it is not a flagship model of the new 7 Series, it still offers an impressive performance. In as quick as 4.5 seconds, it is capable of hitting 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour). That comes from its V8 engine that carries out 445 horsepower and 650 Newton metres (479 pound feet) of torque. It also has a top speed of 155 miles per hour. The performance of this car is perfect for countries like the United States and Germany where speed is a big factor for choosing a car.

In this case, we are not only impressed by the 750Li’s performance, but also with its unique paint job, as it is finished in a cool Atlantis Blue that was customised by none other than BMW Individual. This is not actually the first time that we have seen this colour, as it had been applied to other BMWs in the past - like a couple of M3s and M4s. What makes it unique on a 750Li is the fact that customers usually stick to default colours like black, grey, or white in the 7 Series, and it is quite rare to see one in a bright blue shade.

Drag races usually pit one vehicle against another to see which of them would cross the finish line first. This has become a popular type of motor racing and some even do it to determine which of the two cars is quicker. Somehow, a certain drag race had a new Volkswagen Arteon go up against an older BMW 5-Series (F10), and the action is all recorded on video.

The video – created by Odessa Drag – saw action between a gold-colored automatic VW Arteon R-Line powered by a 2.0-liter engine and a black-finished BMW 5 Series (F10) powered by a 3.0-liter petrol mill. As the race starts, the golden VW Arteon managed to pull away quickly from its opponent. The video is quite noisy – as if there’s a horde of mosquitoes in the area – as it was captured through a flying drone. Based from the video, the drag race appears like it might have occurred in the city of Odessa in Ukraine, Eastern Europe.

At the end, the BMW 5 Series never recovered and the VW Arteon proved to be the better vehicle between the two. However, the information provided by the uploader is so scant that it doesn’t provide a clear picture of the drama of the drag race. If you consider how loaded the model version is, the BMW 5 Series isn’t expected to easily lose against the VW Arteon. In fact, in some power matchups, the BMW 5 Series might have won.

The Middle East is home to a number of one-off vehicles, as well as specially modified luxury cars. Almost every month, we hear about new cars being unveiled or brought into the country, and a lot of them are BMWs.

Now, one of the latest models that BMW Abu Dhabi Motors has on display is the mind blowing range-topping 7 Series that’s currently on sale. The last model we saw before this was the impressive M760Li xDrive finished in Imola Red, which we saw a few weeks ago. Now, BMW’s Long Beach Blue M760Li xDrive is just as striking as the last model we saw.

This is definitely not the first time we have seen this hue on a car. In fact, it has been used on different models like the M2 pocket rocket. You might also agree if I say that this colour looks a bit too wild on the large sedan. Thanks to the black carbon fiber accents all throughout the car, from the mirror caps to the 21-inch multi-spoke 629 design wheels, the whole package now looks so much better. But that’s not all that this car has to boast about. The car also has a 3D Design Body kit that adds some nice details here and there. Lastly, it has got a trunk lid spoiler from the M Performance.

Customers who think the BMW 4 Series Coupe is rather ordinary are in for a treat especially with what BMW Individual and Alpina have in store. The best example is presently being displayed at BMW Abu Dhabi Motors, a dealer that looks to be getting the best toys to play around with.

Even with one look, the use of Rallye Green paint on the Alpina B4 S makes the body even more aggressive. Combined with the upgrades implemented by those at Buchloe, it is clear that this is not your standard 4 Series Coupe.

On the inside for example, BMW Individual made sure that the interior of the B4 S would be different from the usual 4 Series Coupe. The instrument cluster has blue dials with the steering wheel showing green stitching. This color theme is in fact the same as that on the exterior. While the usual 4 Series Coupe has a left air vent on its center console, the B4 S instead has an extra display. On the lower region of the console is a special plaque that proves this is not the usual car.

BMW is currently developing another M2 that will either wear the GTS or the CSL index, after its latest facelift just a couple of months ago. Today, the M2 is still a crowd favourite, being a model with the perfect balance between aggressive design, performance and price. One question a lot of people would ask today is whether this could be made even better.

It definitely can be improved. And check out this photo to see how the coupe can be made to look even more handsome with just some cosmetic tweaks. Firstly, this M2 Coupe had been given a new carbon fiber exterior aerodynamic pack that was finished in a Long Beach Blue colour, which is probably the most eye catching colour of the coupe. This exterior kit is currently available at BMW Abu Dhabi Motors.

At first look, you may not notice it, but this particular M2 actually has carbon fiber front bumper lip spoiler, a massive fixed rear wing, a rear diffuser, and 3D Design side skirts - all in the same lightweight material. The new exhaust system has more prominent tips as well.

For many, a dream car shouldn’t be just spacious and luxurious, but also fast and furious. The BMW M3 might be just this kind of dream car, but an M version of the 4-Series Gran Coupe would still be a better choice. But to no avail, an M4 Gran Coupe isn't happening yet, even after the 4 Series just recently received a Life Cycle Impulse (mid-cycle update).

BMW Abu Dhabi – which describes itself as an exclusive importer for BMW, MINI and BMW ALPINA in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, United Arab Emirates – has come up with a modified version of a 4-Series Gran Coupe that could be the closest thing we could get to an M4 Gran Coupe. BMW Abu Dhabi has been known for its knack in creating leveled-up versions of a typical BMW vehicle, and this latest custom-build isn't an exception.

BMW Abu Dhabi started off with a regular BMW 440i Gran Coupe. Wrapped in elegant yet sporty Snapper Rocks Blue paint finish, this 440i Gran Coupe is hugged by athletic body kit from M Performance – from its bottom to the top. Its black kidney grilles features M-colored vertical stripes on the front while its rear end features M Performance trunk lid spoiler, as complemented by an Akrapovic exhaust system with an Akrapovic Sport downpipe. Furthermore, this custom-built BMW 440i Gran Coupe rides on 20-inch M Performance wheels. Its driver is treated to an M Performance steering wheel; except for this, the interior of this new 440i Gran Coupe remains the same when it was delivered from the factory.

G-Power is known as one of the few BMW-tuning specialists, and they now have fresh upgrades for the newest 5 Series that is already quite powerful to begin with. What the tuner did was that they installed an additional engine control module that lets the car access more power from its engine.

Specially made for BMW’s 3.0 liter inline six diesel engine, the D-Tronik 5 V1 can help give it a major upgrade in output. To be more specific, when the M550d xDrive is tuned, it gets 59 horsepower (44 kilowatts) more than the stock model, adding up to 453 horsepower (338 kilowatts), and 74 pound-feet (100 Newton metres) more torque, totaling with 634 pound-feet (860 Newton metres). Similarly, the 540d can be maximized to 380 horsepower (283 kilowatts) and 553 pound-feet (750 Nm) of torque after the upgrade, compared to the standard version which only had an output of 315 horsepower (235 kilowatts) and 502 pound-feet (680 Nm).

That’s not all though, there is also the Bi-Tronik 5 V1, but this time, it is for the 3.0 liter inline six gasoline fueled mill. It can push the 540i to 394 horsepower (294 kilowatts), that is 59 horsepower (44 kilowatts) more, as for the torque, it goes up by 66 pound feet (90 Nm), now hitting 398 pound-feet (540 Newton metres).

Bimmerpost has posted several cool pictures of the new BMW G30 540i and the new G31 generation BMW 5-Series Touring, with both wearing the brilliant Rhodonite Silver Individual colour.

The photos are courtesy of a guy from Sweden who claims to have ordered a 540i x G30 and is expecting its arrival next summer. Notably, the pictures were taken without sunlight so there may be some variation. Nevertheless, this customer is excited to share these photos with fellow BMW enthusiasts to see what they have to say about this uncommon colour.

The usual silver that we’re accustomed to seeing on cars doesn’t display any hints of chrome or lilac unlike the Rhodonite Silver Metallic on the 5-series models. Interestingly, BMW Individual Program has other interesting exterior color options including Azurite Black that drops a tinge of blue into it and Champagne Quartz with traces of metallic purple, gold and beige all rolled into one. Of course, there’s the Almandine Brown Metallic that looks so dark you’d think it’s another shade of black. But since both the xDrive Touring G31 540d and the G30 530e plugin hybrid are donning BMW M Sport packages, the Individual colour must have been particularly chosen as an upgrade which we estimate will cost you about £1,740.

The current BMW 7 Series made its debut two years ago at the BMW headquarters in Munich, before it made its way to the International Auto Show in Germany weeks after. It was the first 7 Series that was introduced as a plug-in hybrid variant.

However, this one-off M760Li was customized by BMW Individual customization program. It wears an Austin Yellow paint job that looks good on the sedan, while riding on a set of 21-inch multi-spoke wheels. This is the only 7 Series that has been painted in this unique shade. This colour is typically reserved for an M4 or an M3, and you can find this unit showcased in BMW Abu Dhabi.

The 7 Series’ interior is then finished in creme-coloured leather, which stretches from the seats, to the dash, and to the center console. To bring some flair to it, BMW Individual also added wood paneling and black leather on the steering wheel and on the dash. When looking at it, the model’s exterior paint and interior colours seem to be lacking some contrast. We think that a black interior would make a better contrast with the yellow paint.

Dubai and Abu Dhabi are among a small number of places where flashy cars are a common sight. You will need something really unique if you would like to stand out from the crowd. One fine example is this Speed Yellow BMW M4 Convertible that has been tuned by AC Schnitzer. Abu Dhabi and Al Ain get their vehicles from Abu Dhabi Motors, the official importer of BMW, Alpina and AC Schnitzer vehicles.

This AC Schnitzer M4 is a beauty. No one will disagree with that statement even after seeing treatments from other tuners like Liberty Walk. The front splitter, drive planes, mirror caps and rear accents are made with carbon fiber bits.

The upgrades are so smooth that they look as if they have been equipped from the factory. This M4 was also given the dark finished exhaust tips that look more than amazing. But if there’s one thing that a lot of people are unsure about when it comes to styling is the AC Schnitzer AC1 wheels with thin spokes, as they don’t seem to go too well with the rest of the body.

People residing in the state of Victoria in Australia may soon find a number of Mercedes-Benz cars making rounds on the streets as police patrol cars. This comes as BMW Australia recently inked a partnership agreement to supply the police force in Victoria, Australia, with cars to be used as highway patrol units.

According to the agreement, BMW Australia will be supplying the Victoria Police with around 80 units of the BMW 530d diesel-powered sedans. The first batch of these BMW 530d Victoria Police Highway Patrol vehicles would be operational by early 2018, with the complete fleet (80 units) already on the service by the end of next year.

BMW Australia will present the BMW 530d to Victoria Police in entry-level specs. According to Australian Web site Car Guide, this particular BMW 530d is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder unit that could deliver 195 kW (261 hp) of max output and 620 Nm of peak torque. This amount of power is sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, allowing the new BMW 530d to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds. The 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine in the BMW 530d is very efficient as well – consuming just 4.7 liters of diesel per 100 km (combined cycle) and emitting only 124 grams of carbon dioxide emissions per km.

Every now and then, BMW Abu Dhabi gets quite a cool selection of customized cars, many of them tuned by BMW Individual. These are not just the nicest toys, but are also the most eye-catching ones as well, often in striking hues. The latest one that’s on display in one of their dealerships would be the M760Li (or M760i in the United States), and it has been finished in a Rallye Green paint that is part of the Individual catalog.

Apart from the stunning green paint, the BMW M760Li now has a front spoiler and an Alpina rear trunk lid spoiler has been added to complement that look. Smaller details such as satin chrome accents around the beefy front and side vents and mirror caps complete the exterior changes.

Changes do not stop on just the exterior, as the BMW’s cabin now features a fine-grain Merino leather upholstery in Opal white, contrasted by black stitching. Furthermore, it has been given extra accents in gloss black, as well as an upgraded entertainment system with dual screens in the rear. Since this model is a M760Li version, expect to see several “M” pieces inside and out to further boost the car’s appeal.

A few weeks after teasing the new 2018 BMW Alpina D5 S high-performance diesel-powered car, Alpina is now letting more information out of the bag. This new creation based on the BMW 5-Series that’s tagged as the fastest serial diesel car in the world comes in two body types – saloon (sedan) and touring (estate or wagon).

Alpina is introducing the new BMW Alpina D5 S to the global audience at the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show. Expected to be the highlight of the Buchloer booth, the Alpina D5 S is eager to prove its worth as a diesel car that could give petrol-powered sedans and wagons a run for their money in terms of acceleration and speed.

The new BMW Alpina D5 S is derived from the new G30 generation of the BMW 5-Series. The BMW Alpina D5 S may have less power output as BMW’s high-performance M550d, but it has more torque. This allowed the BMW Alpina D5 S to be as quick as the BMW M550d. However, electronic limitations were loosened up a little, allowing the D5 S to be faster than the M550d.

Have you been thinking of getting a BMW M3 (F80) sedan, but are not satisfied with the standard colours you can get it in? Well, BMW Individual can give in to your every whim, and you can have whatever colour you wish for. Just like this M3 finished in a unique Java Green finish. It is nothing like what you would imagine on that car huh? But this shade is not just limited to that model; it can also be applied to models like the M4 Coupe, M6 Gran Coupe, the 7 series, and some others.

The company gets the name "Java Green" from unripe coffee beans, and the shade helps the compact sedan stand out more. Since a standard M3 looks a little plain, it had been given a number of eye-catching M Performance components from the front fascia to the rear end of the car. The M3 now comes with a prominent front splitter that makes it look more aggressive, and the black side skirts now get an "M Performance" lettering. The newest thing in the back would be the carbon fiber wing that is seamlessly attached to the trunk lid.

Moreover, this M3 has been given an updated exhaust system from the M Performance pack, giving it a louder roar. The 20-inch forged alloy wheels with a star spoke design is now paired with carbon ceramic brakes and gold calipers from the Competition Package. As for performance, the car can produce as much as 444 horsepower instead of just 425 horsepower from before.

The current generation of the BMW M3 (F80) sedan isn’t just sporty and luxurious in terms of looks, but also in terms of performance. Because of its athletic appeal, the BMW M3 sedan has been one of the favorite subjects of vehicle modifications and tuning. Just recently, a BMW M3 was tweaked to feature a contrasting exterior and interior as well as a number of performance parts.

With a one-tone exterior finished in Atlantis Blue, this BMW M3 looks simple, elegant yet athletic. The single tone exterior of this particular BMW M3 helps highlight the M-Performance parts fitted on its body. This example of the M3 is fitted with an M Performance body kit and an M Performance exhaust. Its front end features a muscular bonnet derived from the BMW M4 GTS as well as front spoiler in carbon fiber. The rear end, on the other hand, this tweaked BMW M3 is fitted with carbon fiber rear diffuser and exhaust tips. Its large rear wing is also of carbon fiber. It also seems that the roof of this M3 is also carbon fiber.

All of these changes further made the exterior of the M3 more prominent, as already defined by its sporty lines and high-gloss black double-bar kidney grille featuring the M3 badge. Its set of large air inlets is well-complemented by all-LED headlights with dynamic design.
