Thumbs up BMW M PowerSource website - new online home for BMW M

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Some pretty cool info when you click on the Take the Tour tab...like the E63 M6 hitting 211 mph on the autobahn (de-limited)

Introducing the M PowerSource, the new online home of the legendary BMW M brand. You’ll find everything there is to know about M racing heritage and technology, as well as hard to find classic photos. For over 40 award-winning years and with 20 race-ready vehicles, M has been the standard of exclusive performance. But remember, once you start, you may not be able to stop. Just like the M driving experience.

Yeah.... the 211mph m6 had to be with a tail wind. It wont even read 211 on the HUD not taking error into effect.

Cool wall tho

Yeah pretty interesting... I guess that explains why in that Caddy CTS-V showdown sponsored by GM a few yrs ago, Lutz looked/sounded completely tripped out when that 20 yr old kid with an M3 sedan bested Lutz' time. In the afternoon run, GM had to get a couple of its expert testers/drivers on the track to beat the M3.

Site is "neat", but at the expense of UX.

Great info, but the person responsible for the layout should be fired! This is the worst design I have ever seen, which is a shame because the content is great.

How could a design so inept be allowed to go forward?

It is especially unusable on a tablet.

Wow is all I can say.

It say's the E46 is a 5-speed.

I found one place where the site said the V8 in the M3 GT (ALMS series) is turbocharged.....

I was frustrated by the layout until I found the shortcut menus at the bottom.
