While wireless Android Auto will soon beeasier to find on phones, it’s another matter for cars. The cable-free tech is still rare outside of a few brandslike BMW. A crowdfunded project might change that, however. Developer Emil Borconi-Szdressy recentlylaunchedan Indiegogo campaign (viaXDAand9to5Google) for an AAWireless USB dongle that, as the name implies, adds wireless Android Auto to your existing car.

You’ll need a car infotainment system with wired Android Auto support. While that’s increasingly commonplace, it does rule out upgrading a beloved older ride. Patience will also be important, as it can take up to 40 seconds for the dongle to connect. Compatibility might also be an issue. Although the team is testing “as many cars and head units as possible” and believes it should work with any Android Auto-equipped car, the developers can’t guarantee that support at this stage.

Rory McIlroy and his wife, Erica
Rory McIlroy and his wife Erica are expecting a baby girl

Rory McIlroy says he is “just waiting for a phone call” as he awaits the birth of his first child with wife Erica Stoll.

“I’m going to play in many more Tour Championships, and it’s only going to be the birth of your first child once,” said the Northern Irishman, 31.

“That trumps anything else.”

The former world number one added: “I was waiting for a phone call last week and it didn’t come, and then [McIlroy’s caddy] Harry (Diamond) has been keeping his phone in his pocket just to make sure, but nothing as of yet.”

Afterheading into the third roundas the joint leader by one shot, McIlroy struggled on the tough Olympia Fields course on Saturday, picking up five bogeys along with two birdies to close out the day with a three-over-par 73.

That dropped him to two over for the tournament, three back from joint leaders Dustin Johnson and Hideki Matsuyama, and sitting in a tie for sixth place.

Selected others: 3M Fitzpatrick (Eng); 4T Hatton (Eng); 6P Casey (Eng); 8J Thomas (US); 10T Woods (US)

World number one Dustin Johnson shares the lead going into the final round of the BMW Championship in Illinois.

The 36-year-old American, who won last week’s Northern Trust event with a 30-under total, was one behind overnight.

He carded a one-under 69 to lead by two with Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama – who also shot 69 – and they are the only players under par at Olympia Fields.

Joint overnight leader Rory McIlroy is three strokes back in a share of sixth after five bogeys in a 73.

Another former world number one, Jon Rahm, is also two over after five birdies in the joint-best round of the day, a 66.

That four-under round on the tough North course at the Chicago club included a one-shot penalty for picking up his ball without having marked it.

“I was thinking of somebody else or something else – I just picked up the ball without marking it, simple as that,” Rahm said.

“I can’t really give an explanation. It’s one of those things that happen – never thought it would in my professional career, but here we are.”

Former Masters champion Adam Scott of Australia is in a group of three at one over along with Joaquin Niemann of Chile and Canada’s Mackenzie Hughes.

Johnson, winner of 22 PGA Tour titles, has held the 54-hole lead or co-lead in each of his last three starts.

The top-70 players in the points table are taking part in this week’s event, but only the top 30 will qualify for the season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake in Atlanta starting next week.

Tiger Woods, needing a top-five finish to advance to next week’s finale, is 10 over in a tie for 55th after a 72.

Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy and England’s Matthew Fitzpatrick are three strokes behind leader Hideki Matsuyama after the BMW Championship first round.

McIlroy’s round featured a mixture of four birdies and four bogeys as he battled his way to a level-par 70.

Fitzpatrick recorded a double bogey on his penultimate hole to also post 70.

Only three players shot under par at Olympia Fields and Japan’s Matsuyama leads by one after holing a 67-foot birdie putt at his last to card a 67.

American Tyler Duncan is second on two under and Canada’s Mackenzie Hughes is third on one under in Chicago.

Four-time major winner McIlroy, who has yet register a top-10 finish since golf returned in June, said: “I said last week if you need someone to shoot between like even par and two under, I’m your man.

“So I’m loving these conditions. It’s sort of weird. The way my game feels at the minute, it’s just as easy for me to shoot even par here as it was last week in Boston, for whatever reason that is.

“But this is proper golf. You’ve really got to think about stuff. It’s nice to play a round of golf like that again.”

New world number one Dustin Johnson is on one over, while fellow American Tiger Woods, winner of 15 majors, is a further two shots behind.

The 44-year-old was a steady one under after six holes but three successive bogeys midway through his round undid his good work and he eventually finished with a 73. England’s Paul Casey, tied second at the PGA Championship, is also on three over.

The tournament began on schedule despite postponements in other US sports to protest against racial injustices in the wake of thepolice shooting in Wisconsin of African-American Jacob Blake.

American golfer Cameron Champ – who has a black father and white mother – wore one black and one white shoe. On the white shoe he had written “Jacob Blake BLM”.

The BMW Championship is the second of three events in the US circuit’s FedEx Cup play-offs that will determine the PGA Tour champion for this season.

The top 70 players in the season’s points rankings are taking part in the BMW Championship, which will decide the 30 players to compete in next month’s season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake in Atlanta.

Rory McIlroy was one of only two players to finish under par at the BMW Championship on Friday as he took a share of the overall lead.

The Northern Irishman carded a one-under 69 to move alongside American Patrick Cantlay at the top of the leaderboard at the halfway stage.

McIlroy made five birdies as he aimed to improve on just one top-12 finish since the PGA Tour resumed in June.

“I was able to break par which is awesome,” he said.

“I got myself into a good spot going into the weekend.

“As it got later in the day, the course definitely became a little firmer, a little tougher. The wind got up a little bit.

“I’m a little disappointed to drop those shots on the way in, but I think if you shoot anything under par on this golf course, you’ve got to be pretty pleased.”

America’s Dustin Johnson, who is leading the season-long FedEx Cup standings, birdied his final two holes at Olympia Fields for a 69 to move into a tie for third with Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama, who shot a three-over 73 to reach level-par 140 for the two rounds.

At the end of play, there were 29 players sitting within five shots of the leaders.

Briton Tyrrell Hatton, tied for 13th on three over par, features among those within touching distance of the top spot.

De nieuwe BMW M5 Competition krijgt mooie nieuwe dempers – Top Gea

De nieuwe BMW M5 Competition krijgt mooie nieuwe dempers – Top Gea

Translating…

This is the new, freshly facelifted BMW M5 Competition. The range-topping version of the definitive batsh*t fast BMW saloon. Looks the same, yes, but there are new things.

Chief among which is the addition of a brand-new set of dampers; BMW says the new M5 Comp “benefits from experience gained in the development of the new BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe”.

Naturally said dampers get modes: Comfort, Sport and Sport , dialling up the madness which each successive click of the controller. Sport is said to reduce wheel and body movements to better create an interface between thine own self and road, while Sport “maximises dynamic performance on smooth asphalt such as race tracks”. Quite why you’d need to take a near two-tonne saloon onto a track is… obvious, surely. You need to test the new suspension. In rear-drive only mode. Using all the revs. 

So, better body control, and coilover suspension that allows a drop in ride height of between 5mm and 20mm. The M5 Comp gets bespoke engine mounts too – they’re stronger – which means fewer structural losses. Or something.

And said mounts will be earning their crust reining in a 4.4-litre turbo V8, here producing 616bhp and 553lb ft of torque. It’s the same power and torque as the last M5 Comp, and thus boasts the same nutjob acceleration numbers: 0-62mph takes just 3.3s (a tenth faster than a ‘regular’ M5), 0-124mph in 10.8s, and a top speed of 155mph (or 189mph if you spec the M Driver’s Pack). Still fast, then.

And it’s still matched to an eight-speed auto, and all-wheel-drive (dubbed M xDrive) with a rear-wheel-drive bias and an active M Diff. There’s also an ‘M Dynamic Mode’ that allows “controlled drifts and entertaining handling”, and of course the ability to switch it into 2WD mode, “for the traditional BMW M5 rear-wheel drive experience”. Coooool.

M Sport exhaust? Check. M Compound brakes? Check. M badges dotted all over the body? Very check. The Comp gets a black surround for the kidney grille, a revised front apron, adaptive LED lights, a new rear apron with a large diffuser, and some Competition badging.

There’s a choice of colours and a new wheel option, while inside the central display is larger – now 12.3in – complete with a pair of buttons like the M8’s that give direct access to some system settings. Like M Mode, which again means you can choose between Road, Sport and Track settings, and an individual setup button.

Confused by this myriad of settings and potential setups? Let’s keep it simple. This is a £98,095 version of BMW’s definitive sports saloon, now with fancy new dampers, M Mode and a new display. This, or an E63?
