So far, photos of the limited edition BMW M340i Touring First Edition have been quite rare, but thanks to BMW Spain, we can break that spell today. The Spaniards are introducing the M340i Touring First Edition through an extensive and beautiful photo gallery which highlights the undisputed qualities of the car.
The Frozen Dark Grey paint not only comes into its own in the photo studio, but it also creates exciting images as a dark contrast to red lighting. Incidentally, we also get a good visual impression of the optional laser headlights and the standard LED rear lights of the BMW 3 Series Touring.
In addition to the BMW Individual Frozen Dark Grey color, the BMW M340i Touring First Edition is limited to 340 units worldwide. It also comes with an extended shadow line, which means that the mesh kidney grille on the front and some other details are kept [...]
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 [...]
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, [...]
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 [...]
For quite some time, the BMW X7 has not been seen in the market, and even BMW has been releasing some teasers on and off. As of now, the market only gets to see a prototype of how the all-new X7 is going to look. The X6 has always been the flagship SUV model for the brand as of now, but going by the specs that the X7 is going to bear, it is expected that the X6 will soon be dethroned. However, brands like Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Volvo and Range Rover must be aware since the X7 is going to pose some tough competition in the segment where the GLS, Q7, and XC90 belonged. Apart from being the SUV, it is also going to be the Sports Activity Vehicle.
Of all the aspects, the first look at the BMW Greensboro will draw one’s attention to those massive wheels and the boxy proportions to stay in [...]
