      BMW previewed their upcoming three-row crossover with the the X7 iPerformance concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show. There is now talk about adding a coupe-like design derivative known as the X8.
      BMW’s head of development, Klaus Fröhlich told Autocar that the company is considering such a model, but there are  no concrete plans for this.
      “The sector is growing fast, so there will be opportunity, It is early to talk about X8, but one of the first decisions I made when I worked on product strategy was to take the X5 and make the X6," said Fröhlich.
      “There is room for X8 – especially in markets like China – but there are no decisions yet. Each car must have a distinct character, and these are the sort of areas that take time to evaluate.”
      Autocar reports discussions at the moment deal with the design. BMW is looking into either doing something like the X4 and X6 or designing a long-wheelbase variant that would free up space in the back to allow for a sweeping coupe roof. The latter option is said to be favored by many, but could make this project complex as it would make BMW create a new platform that will be a hybrid of the CLAR modular platform and the upcoming modular platform for Rolls-Royce.
      No matter which design BMW decides to go with, the X8 is said to have seating for four or five people and provide a number of luxuries for those sitting in the back.

      Local News reporting 1.4 Million BMW Auto's Recalled for Fire.
       
      According to the local news, BMW anounced today that they are recalling 1.4 million cars and cuv/suv's in America due to potential fire and that all owners should leave them outside till the repair is done.
      740,000 cover the following models 328i, 328xi, 328i xDrive, 525i, 525xi, 528i, 528xi, 530i, 530xi, X3 3.0si, X3 xDrive30i, X5 xDrive30i, Z4 3.0i, Z4 3.0si, Z4 sDrive30i these auto's being from 2007 to 2011. 128i from 2008-2011 also included. Stated all are the V6 models.
      673,000 covers the following models 323i, 325i, 325xi, 328i, 328xi, 330i, 330xi, 335i, 335xi and M3 from 2006 to 2011.  328i xDrive, 335i xDrive and 335is for 2007 to 2011. 335d for 2009 to 2011.
      The problem is that underrated wiring according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration used on the AC and Heater systems can overheat, causing the connectors to melts and start the auto on fire even when the auto is unattended.
      BMW has agreed to have their dealers replace the wiring and connectors free of charge.
      BMW says out of concern for their customers and in an abundance of caution they will implement the NHTSA recommended recall.
      Have to say, if this is a problem here in the US, what about the rest of their auto's around the world. Sounds like some serious shortcuts for profits.
