BMW will be making 50 examples of the M5 Pure Metal Silver edition! Making 600hp this is an impressive vehicle.

With 600 hp and Pure Metal Silver paint, this M5 is America's forbidden fruit.

The 2017 BMW Alpina B7 will have 600hp, and 590 lb-ft of torque. That's good enough to get you from 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds on your way to a top speed of 196mph. All while cruising in the utmost luxury you can imagine!

The 2017 BMW Alpina B7 will start at $137,995 in the US and, on top of its amazing performance on the road, it will come with plenty of standard kit.

Some may have forgotten about the BMW Z4 but we know we haven't, it's an amazing roadster, and you couldn't ask for a better summer vehicle!
Despite it being the oldest car in its class, we test out the BMW Z4 sDrive28i to see if it can keep up with its newer competitors.

The BMW M2 is one of the hottest vehicles you can buy right now, but how does it compare to it's older brother the 1M Coupe?


The BMW M2 is one of the hottest coupes on the road right now -- but how does it compare to the car it's replacing, the amazing BMW 1M Coupe?

"BMW Group is facilitating control of Smart Home functions and end devices from the vehicle. The android-based SmartThings app perfectly integrated in a BMW i3. This system allows installations like the heating in the Smart Home to be controlled while driving along, using the iDrive Controller and the Control Display. The driver can additionally check from the vehicle whether the windows and doors are closed or whether the alarm system has been activated."

The BMW M4 GTS is one serious performance machine, built to dominate track!


BMW has long been known as the “Ultimate Driving Machine,” and its current lineup of new 2016 vehicles is nothing short of that distinction. From the popular 2016 BMW 4 Series to the high performance 2016 BMW M4, every BMW that comes through Yark BMW will be an exceptional choice!

BMW has announced it's plan to repurpose BMW i3 batteries for use in homes! The battery pack could be used to store alternative energy captured by solar panels for example, and have enough power to run the average home for two days.

At EVS29, BMW announces a new home energy system that uses new or old i3 battery packs.

Rick C, Steve and Pete M, thank you very much for providing me with an amazing buying experience. I'm from Ann Arbor and drove all the way to Toledo to check out a 328i and ended up buying it. Rick was respectful, kind and answered all my questions and made the whole buying experience very easy and comfortable. I was searching for a 328i since two years and I've visited BMW Ann Arbor, Erhard Farmington Hills and Bloomfield Hills, Okemos and BMW Greenville SC. I would not hesitate to say that Yark was the best among them all. Pete at the finance department was very friendly and gave me a good overview of all my options. If you're a first time buyer like me, I would totally recommend you to go there. TOTALLY WORTH IT. Again, thanks Rick, Steve and Pete. You guys are awesome!

Amazing dealership! The Sales staff at Yark are all fantastic, especially Paul Lunde. However, the true test of a dealership is the service department. I have been treated as if I purchased the most expensive vehicle from the dealership, when I actually purchased a used vehicle. When I had a mechanical issue with my vehicle, I was greeted by a smile and great attitude by John Isler, I was provided a loaner vehicle, when I picked up my vehicle it was vacuumed and washed, and again treated with kindness and smiles from the staff. I have never been treated so well throughout the entire purchase process and on through service than i have experienced at Yark BMW. I highly recommend Yark BMW for anyone's purchase of a new or used vehicle.

I recently bought two vehicles from Yark BMW representative Chris Miller. I bought a pre-owned Audi A4 and a Chrysler town and country. Chris was extremely professional. After a week my Audi wouldn't start. I replaced the battery thinking that would help; however, it did not. I contacted Chris on Sundays when they were closed and he immediately called me back. He advised me to bring it back in so they could diagnose the issue. After bringing it in they found that the alternator had gone bad. My warranty on the car did not take effect for 30 days after purchase so I found myself in a very frustrating situation. Without hesitation Chris went to bat for me and Yark replaced the alternator for me covering the $900 expense. I was more than greatful! About a week later the Audi started stalling intermittently. Again I was in a frustrating position with a car I've owned for three weeks and a warranty that has not taken effect yet. Again, I contacted Chris on a Sunday (their one day off) and he immediately got back to me. He was always empathetic and helpful. I brought the Audi back into the dealership where they were able to diagnose the issue. Chris provided me with a rental car at no cost to me and fought to get the car fixed. They subcontracted the work to make sure it got done correctly, which I couldn't have been more satisfied with. The icing on the cake was that my warranty ended up not covering the ECU relay that was faulty and replaced. However, without me having to ask Chris and the Yark family decided it was the right thing to do to pay for the repair. I CANNOT stress how amazing their customer service was, and how well they treat their customers!!! Chris personally changed my nightmare into a dream. I will be a customer of Chris's and Yark's for life! Words cannot express the level of satisfaction I have for Chris and Yarn. Thank you, thank you thank you!!!

Our BMW X5 broke down near this dealership while driving to WI. I have to say the service was great. The Downside... after $1800 in repairs they don't guarantee anything. The car recently went to our local dealership for the same issue, it cost about $1200 this time. Called and sent pictures directly from the BMW technician at our local dealership. Their answer was cut and dry " The repair pictured of the oil filter housing is not a repair performed at this shop. We will not issue a refund or participate in the repair costs. " That is great customer service.... now I'm a liar too.

Mr. Gonzalez, After forwarding your concerns to our BMW Service Director, he explained that the nut and bolt in the picture you provided were not installed by our team. We hope the issues you are experiencing with your vehicle are resolved soon, and we wish there was more we could do. If you have any further questions regarding this please contact our service manager. Thank you.

I won't complain since I do LOVE my BMW however, when you have to pay $350.00 for a part roughly 40 days after purchasing because it's not covered under the warranty...kind of #sucks. Excellent service team though from sales to repairs; I've always like YARK :-)
