AT LEAST one Scotland player's ambition of spending the summer in New Zealand with the British & Irish Lions has been scuppered. Huw Jones, the South Africa -based centre who was an outside bet for a place in the touring party, has had surgery on the hamstring he tore playing for Scotland against Italy at the weekend.

We've known for some time now that BMW would switching its 6 Series model line from the sleek, svelte coupe that it currently is to a frumpy Gran Turismo model. We've even seen pictures of the new 6 Series GT driving around in all of its frumpy glory. Yet, could we be wrong in thinking that BMW isn't also working on a svelte sports car to wear the 6 Series nameplate, something that could compete with the Porsche 911? The upcoming BMW 8 Series Coupe and Convertible will be replacing what we know as the current 6 Series, as the grand-touring coupe/convertible in BMW's lineup. However, that car will grow in size, luxury and price, to compete with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe/Cabrio . So there will be a void in BMW's lineup where the 6 Series used to be and where the Porsche 911 resides. It's a spot the BMW should fill, regardless of whether or not it plans to.

We recently were given a ton of new spy photos, featuring several different BMWs that are set to hit the market within the next few years. One of these BMWs was the upcoming 8 Series , which seemed to excite fans. Now, it seems BMW's new 8 Series has been caught again, this time at the Nurburgring. In the spy photos (which we don't own but can be seen at Autoblog ), you can clearly see that this is some sort of performance-oriented 8 Series. While we don't think it's a BMW M8, it definitely looks like some sort of M Performance model. Maybe a BMW M850i ? We can't be certain but the lack of quad exhaust pipes makes us think it's something other than a proper M8. Admittedly, this could just be an M8 with different exhausts for testing, but we've seen M cars testing in camouflage before and they all have the quad pipes. What we can tell is that, whatever sort this is, the BMW 8 Series certainly seems more geared toward luxurious grand touring than performance driving.

Their jobs in the small town of Walkerton, Ontario weren't fulfilling the couple so they saved enough money for a first and last month rental deposit and decided to move to Toronto. Neither of us had jobs, or job leads. All we had was first and last month's rent, a stack of resumes, and 30 days to either find jobs and stay, or pack up and go back home, Autumn shares. They booked a hotel in Toronto and started touring potential apartments. The first two were duds, so we were crossing our fingers we would like the third option as we couldn't afford to stay another night and this was kind of our shot.' Luckily, we really liked option #3 and without hesitation we signed the papers and moved in two weeks later. The last-resort apartment turned out to be a great find with a massive backyard. Autumn knew what it meant to sign a lease.

Ever since news broke that BMW would be dropping the 6 Series Coupe and Convertible , fans have been highly interested in the upcoming 8 Series. Not that a new BMW 8 Series doesn't warrant attention on its own, but fans want to see what the next BMW grand-touring coupe will be like without the smaller 6 Series around. Well, we've received some more spy photos of the BMW 8 Series, in both Coupe and Convertible spec, driving around Munich. While the spy photos don't really offer anything we haven't already seen, as there isn't a difference in the way BMW's camouflaged it, we do get more clear looks at it. It's very low, sleek and aggressive looking, which is good. Its overall profile is very attractive and we can see the beginnings of what will be a very sexy coupe. Just in the 8 Series body shape, it has all of the right elements for a proper grand tourer long hood, short rear deck and muscular rear haunches.

Not only has Heather Morris lost her dance partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy , due to a bad calf injury , but one contestant seemed destined to go home after failing to deliver both this week and last week. Related: DWTS 's Bonner & Sharna INSIST They're Both Single While most of the teams were able to pull together decent routines, there weren't any numbers that particularly wowed us. Be sure to ch-ch-check out the good, the bad, and the downright awful choreographed numbers for yourself (below). Oh, and we'll let you know who got the boot too! This Week's Standouts We're not entirely sure how Normani Kordei is (emotionally and physically) pulling off touring in Asia and competing on DWTS , but homegirl is slaying nevertheless.

Portugal, Renault, and electric cars are becoming indivisibly linked in my mind. I test drove the Renault Fluence in Lisbon in November 2011, and then the Renault Zoe a few miles up the coast in March 2013. I liked both cars, but with effective touring ranges of around 80 miles, I’d be the first to admit they had their limitations. The latest version of the Zoe, the Z.E. 40, is an attempt to address that limitation. While the 2013 model had a 22kWh battery, the 2017 incarnation packs nearly twice as much energy: 41kWh, to be precise, with a real-world range of about 190 miles.
