    Well, the Michelin connection goes way back, especially at M GmbH. Also, Alpinas used to run on first-edition Michelinos developed especially for the B7.

    The Castrol connection goes back to the 1930s, I believe. When Castrol was sponsoring BMW racing efforts in the 1970s, BMW's famous Motorsport colors came from Castrol red, Bavarian blue, and a purple resulting from mixing the red and the blue. At least that's what I was told by a BMW Mobile Traditon docent.

    Perhaps the M stripes will now become blue, green, and Shell gold...

    Let's hope not, the blue, green, & yellow sorta look like some hopelessly gawdy color theme you'd see on some South Beach, Miami lanai. :eek:
