    #018 Why prototype camouflage looks the way it does | BMW Podcast

    When a new prototype BMW heads onto the road for testing (or any brand’s test mules for that matter) it’s usually covered in a dazzle camouflage. Most likely anybody that has seen the dazzle camouflage in spy shots or in real life has wondered why it looks the way it does. Well in this episode of “Changing Lanes”, Sara and Jonathan explain why the patterns look the way they do, where they have their surprising origins, and also explain the term “Erlkönig”, used in Germany to describe covered test mules.

    And if you want to read and see more about prototype camouflage and “Erlkönig” cars, go to BMW.com:

    #015 The best BMW engines of all times - a (subjective) list | BMW Podcast

    We set out to find the best BMW engine of all time. In this episode of “Changing Lanes”, the official podcast of BMW, we’re about to end the eternal debate among petrolheads and BMW fans, and finally declare the greatest BMW engine of all time. Well, not really, as it’s nearly impossible to pick an engine from over 100 years of engine history at BMW. V12, V8 or straight-six; turbo or naturally aspirated; petrol or diesel engine... the options are seemingly endless. And what about electric engines and hybrids?

    So instead of settling on one engine, we’ve come up with a highly subjective list of 12 engine milestones. Think we missed one of the greatest BMW engines? Let us know via [email protected]
