BMW UK National Festival 2019 including the launch of 3er Touring, M135i & M8 Comp

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
It was the BMW National Festival today here in the UK and below are some of the shots I took. More pics on my site.

It was also the first UK public reveal of the G21 3er Touring and they also brought along the F40 M135i and the M8 Competition Convertible.

Careful - not 56k friendly!





































Century Motorsport also brought along their epic GT cars!













Rest of the pics..

























































































































From Germany?
















For those in the UK, this was Jim Bowen's 7 series at some point:

That new M135i in black doesn't look bad at all.

I actually love the side profile and rear end, gives a nice and aggressive hot hatch look, sadly, it looses all sense of style in the front end, which looks like a rat.

I love the look of the wagon, but only from the rear

I agree.. it does look good.. but of course all sense of style for me is lost because the driven wheels are at the front... rats..

As mentioned before that wagon looks incredible. Sucks to not have it available in the US... Come on BMW, you can do it, we believe in you, just give us what we want.

Great pics thanks for sharing!

Only problem is those m-performance pics have made me realise that although is I really liked the look of the g20 front the m4 front (the darker blue to the left of it) is far more resolved and a better looking "sporty" car to my eyes. Perhaps a used M4 is on my horizon (as opposed the to the G20 30d/40i id assumed)
