In the BMW i range, eight follows three, and that makes perfect sense. According to Carscoops, via AMS Magazine, nine might soon follow eight, you know, as it should.

Like a frightened teenaged boy on prom night, BMW has this 5 Series Touring wrapped up pretty tightly; however, these spy shots aren’t short on the goods.

The Los Angeles Times was recently in the mood for the “d”, and it got it three different ways. I’m talking about diesel. What did you think I was talking about? It tested oil-burning sedans from Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi.

BMW chooses to call its SUV-like X5 a “Sports Activity Vehicle,” so it should come as no surprise that it’s named the car you see here something other than “a tall wagon” or “a model wearing our badge that spins its front wheels.” The German automaker has dubbed it the “2 Series Active Tourer.”

Be careful when navigating through the spy-shot gallery after the jump. The image with the shirtless middle-aged man could cause blindness.
