2012 BMW 650i M Package Coupe Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 BMW 650i M Package Coupe is no longer
the ugly duckling of the BMW family as it now sports a much more modern and
elegant design. Gone is slightly awkward mishmash of cut lines replaced by
a lowered, stretched and widened car with huge helping of serious road
presence. If you like your BMW's shaken and not stirred...this is the one
Performance: In a word...earth stopping. The BMW 650i Coupe's 32-valve V-8,
aluminum put our 400 HP with 450 pound feet of torque. And in this case it
is the torque that you can really feel a the car pushes you back in the
drivers seat like a pissed off samurai when you floor the car in almost any
of it's eight...that's right...eight forward gears. BTW: Our tester had the
M Sport package which cost $4,400 dollars more and adds body kit, LED fog
lights, and an M steering wheel, amoung other expensive goodies.
Ride and handling are really up to you as the BMW lets you select through
comfort plus, comfort, sport, and sport plus settings. That's right, while
most cars only have three settings the BMW goes to four. And each of the
setting actually works so much so that you can instantly feel the
difference between comfort and sport. Perhaps the only complaint is the
steering which is electronic and somewhat dislocated from the front wheels.

Battle of the Bimmers: BMW M3 v BMW 135i v BMW 335i
Before you start sending us flaming e-mails complaining that a comparison
between the 2008 Audi S5 and the 2008 BMW M3 Coupe is an obvious mismatch
from the get-go, you should know a few things.
Our first full test of the $53,000, all-wheel-drive 2008 Audi S5 was a bit
of a revelation. With a 354-horsepower version of Audi's
direct-injection 4.2-liter V8 under its hood, the voluptuous Audi S5 ran a
13.3-second quarter-mile at 104 mph, just 0.1 second and 2 mph shy of the
420-hp 2007 Audi RS4 sedan. What's more, the S5's slalom speed is within a
couple mph of the harsh-riding RS-spec sedan. "It ran a 13.3? With that
kind of speed, who needs a $67,000 RS4?" we asked ourselves.
We believe so strongly in the 2008 Audi S5 that it earned our Inside Line's
inaugural Editors' Choice Award.
So we acquired (hastily perhaps) another 2008 Audi S5 and set it against
the new 2008 BMW M3 Coupe, a car now fortified with V8 power for the first
time. Speed-reading the specifications sheets of these two cars, they seem
like natural rivals: the 354-hp, all-wheel-drive 2008 Audi S5 measured
against the 414-hp, rear-wheel-drive 2008 BMW M3.
But as it turns out, we gave the 2008 Audi S5 a bigger challenge than we
had initially intended.
