Official photos of 2013 BMW M6 convertible and coupe unveiled

If you're a fan of BMW and its line of M-series high-performance cars, some new official photos of the 2013 BMW M6 have surfaced. BMW is offering up multiple shots of both coupe and convertible versions of the car, and I think for me this is one of those cars that I need to see in person. I'm hoping the car is one of those designs that just doesn't translate well in photos. I don't care for the way it looks in these pictures. The convertible reminds me a bit of a Toyota Solara, which isn't a good thing in my eyes.

BMW highly automated prototype drives itself with assistance

BMW highly automated prototype drives itself with assistance

I have long said that there is no legislation for drivers that will make them pay attention while behind the wheel. No amount of laws against texting and driving or using a hand-held mobile phone while driving will stop those acts from happening. If you look at the number prototype vehicles that have been surfacing over the last year that are able to drive themselves, I have to start wondering if taking the driver away from the driving is the only way to truly combat the distracted driver. I'm not for self-driving cars for myself, or for them being mandated, but I see idiots on the road every day that I would like to see behind the wheel of the car that doesn't need them to drive safely.

BMW shows off refreshed 3-series

BMW shows off refreshed 3-series

I have never been a huge BMW fan. I can certainly appreciate the M versions that the car company puts out with nice performance. Overall, I find the brand a bit boring personally. Still, it's always cool to see the refreshed vehicles that will be coming to market soon. At this point, we have a few pics of the normal 3-Series cars that are lighter, yet lower and wider. The updated rides include the 328i, 335i, and 320d.
