I can't believe all you guys. This is actually real and will be implemented but not until 2015. So you all got fooled even though you thought you were so quick to get the April fools. Lmao!

BMWs new Force Injection Booster simulates the effects of spirited driving, even when commuting at slower speeds, to create a thrilling ride. When activated at speeds under 20mph, the Force Injection Booster (FIB) works by extracting kinetic energy from the cars engine and converting it into positive g-forces. These are then channelled directly at the driver and passengers through the air conditioning vents, while a mild electric current is delivered through the front seats, to simulate the same exhilarating feeling of driving at high speed*.

This technology comes complete with the BMW AirNet, the latest in hair protection technology, to ensure that occupants dont have to compromise between personal style and driving performance.

Professor Mika Notbetr, Head of BMW Innovation, describes FIB technology as Mind-blowingly unbelievable.

The Force Injection Booster will be available across the BMW range from 1 April, 2014. For more information on this optional feature please call 0800 093 6161 or email mika.notbetru@bmw.com.

*Face alteration is not permanent

This will go great with active exhaust sound, or whatever that's called.

Major auto magazines find that the new Cadillacs handle better than the competing BMW products!
