How BMW’s front kidney grill evolved during the years

BMW (Bayerische Motoren Werke) founded in 1916.
BMW became an automobile manufacturer in 1929 when it purchased Fahrzeugfabrik Eisenach, which, at the time, built Austin Sevens under licence under the Dixi marque.

What makes BMW different is large front kidney grill which originates from a bodyshop in Bruchsal, Germany run by the Ihle brothers as it is said in many sources.

Later Franz Fiedler – an influential BMW designer adopted the Ihle grille design for the BMW 303 shown below.

Driving Assistant comprises camera-based Lane Departure Warning and Collision Warning (including pedestrian warning) with brake application function. Lane Departure Warning makes the steering wheel vibrate in order to warn the driver when he or she veers out of lane unintentionally. Collision Warning detects vehicles driving ahead and pedestrians. The system issues a visual and acoustic warning if there is an imminent risk of collision. It also initiates a braking process, if required.

BMW 650i with M Sport Exhaust System

Some were complaining about the sound of V8, well it was good enough at least for me but some people were saying that as long as it is 650i it must have special sound.
So now starting with spring of 2014  the BMW 650i Coupe, the BMW 650i Convertible and the BMW 650i Gran Coupe will all be equipped with an M Sport exhaust system installed at the factory.

The motor-racing inspired system developed by BMW M GmbH reduces the exhaust back pressure and emphasises the characteristic acoustics of the V8 power unit during acceleration and deceleration.

As an option starting with spring of 2014 Harman Kardon surround system will be available on all BMW 6 Series models. High level of music quality will always be with you while driving.

Those who already pre-ordered any of these cars feel free to share your experience. Thank you beforehand.
