The end of an era comes today. According to BMW Group, the BMW European Delivery, a gem hidden within the Bavarians’ offerings, is coming to an end later this year. The car pickup program has been a favorite of ours over the years and has built a cult among BMW customers in North America. BMW of North America says that May 18th, 2020 will be the last day they will accept pre-reservation forms. The last month you can choose to do a BMW European Delivery will be September 2020.
If you have placed a deposit for a 2021 model and would still like to take delivery within the timeframe stated, BMW will accept the pre reservation form without a production number. Once a production [...]
After an amazing debut at Detroit Auto Show, the second generation and model year 2019 BMW X4 promises to be stronger, faster and attractive that its predecessor. It is nicely proportioned with wide tracks, the latest generation suspension settings, a lower center of gravity and improved aerodynamics.
Body: Based on the same platform as the BMW X3, the redesigned 2019 BMW X4 flaunts a sportier look, thanks to its revised M Sport bodywork with body color trim and high-gloss black accents. It has received an additional 3 inches added to its length, 2.1 inches added to its wheelbase, 1.4 inches added to its width, and a 0.1 inch drop in its height. All these adjustments gave [...]
One of the best innovations in car buying in recent years is the rise of no-cost scheduled maintenance programs. Many people feel really anxious about taking their car in for service, and these deals help mitigate that somewhat. Obviously, it’s not free for automakers to implement the offers, and now BMW is altering the way its four-year, 50,000-mile Maintenance Program works for some owners. “To keep such an offer sustainable we had to make a change,” said Kenn Sparks, Manager of Business Communications at BMW North America, to Autoblog via email.
The original person to buy or lease the model isn’t going to see any difference, but the program is no longer transferable to a second owner, unless that person is in the owners household. Those people include includes [...]
DIY: Split Armrest Install F.Y.I…there are parts that will come w/ the armrest that won’t be needed (..i.e…extra rods, some spring contraption, etc.). You can reuse the rods that were on the stock armrest. Remove the rear climate controls by grabbing it along the top and the sides, and pulling gently. Be careful not to break the clips.
Using a pair of pliers, grip the small metal rods and push toward the outside. The outside tip of each rod is grooved to help it stay in place. That is the reason that it must be pushed to the outside. Remove the stock armrest by lifting out and up.
A side-by-side comparison of the stock armrest vs. the split euro armrest.

There is no denying that the BMW M3 models are extremely well made vehicles. That said, like all cars, the M3 has its quirks. After 27 years on the road there are very few complaints with this sport coupe.
The issues most commonly reported include:
Leaks in the Power Steering Hose – The M series vehicles have been known to experience power steering hose leaks. In some cases multiple hoses will leak at once. All leaky hoses will need to be replaced as soon as possible.
Noisy Differential – If you hear a rubbing noise during tight turns the most likely cause is the limited slip differential. Replacing the fluids with a specialty BMW oil may fix the problem, but in [...]
The i3 Hatch, BMW’s first electric car, has been revealed with another technology update in 2018. After a battery pack upgrade in late 2016, the i3 will improve its electric range in 2018. The upgraded version of 2017 bears a 94 Ah battery pack which has considerably improved the operation, under the official NEDC test cycle, by more than 50 percent, from 118 miles to 186 miles, while real-world driving range is increased to a maximum 124 miles on a single battery charge, even in extreme weather conditions with comparable air conditioning or heating requirements.
According to BMW Greensboro NC experts, the new update has brought the capacity of the battery expressed in ampere hour to 120 or the equivalent of approximately 42.5 kWh. The previous version had a 33 kWh capacity. An increase in capacity from 96 to 120 Ah would mean an increase in range of 25 percent, keeping the weight and voltage [...]
