The New BMW 1 Series: Sheer Driving Pleasure Now Found In The Compact Class With BMW Aftermarket Parts at Parts TrainWritten by Jenny McLane
The typical BMW drive concept, powerful engines, high-grade equipment and experience of sheer driving fun offer a new and unique alternative in new BMW 1 Series.
The 1 series is available in several configurations; a four-door hatch, two-door hatch, two-door coupe and a convertible (the latter two to be named 2 series).
It has a long wheelbase with a short front overhang, lower roofline with typical C-pillar kink and characteristic front end with "kidney" grille and double headlamps.
It has rear-wheel drive. Rear-wheel drive is a significant part of BMW’s DNA. With rear-wheel, drive back wheels do power delivery, leaving those at front to get on with steering. It’s a much more expensive option but result is balance. The BMW Series 1 agility and steering precision is unique in compact class. It ensures not only sporty and smooth handling of winding country roads, but also facilitates effortless urban driving pleasure. This is because - like all other BMW automobiles - 1 Series has a front-mounted engine and rear wheel drive. Even in tightest of bends there is no torque steers to be felt, rear wheels having optimal traction when transferring engine's power onto tarmac.
Customers will have an immediate choice of four four-cylinder engines. The models 116i (85 kW / 115 bhp) und 120i (110 kW / 150 bhp) feature further developed and refined BMW petrol engines. The two diesel versions, 118d (90 kW / 122 bhp) and the120d (120 kW / 163 bhp) are equipped with high-torque diesel engines.
The New BMW M6 Coupe: One of the Most Beautiful Cars in the World With High Speed Engine Concept complimented with BMW Parts from Parts TrainWritten by Jenny McLane
The all new BMW M6 Coupe is most sophisticated and powerful 6 Series ever: five-liter engine capacity, 10 cylinders, 507 horsepower, 383 lb-ft maximum torque, and engine speed beyond 8,000 rpm limit.
The BMW M6 V-10 507 Hp Engine comes with all driving dynamics required for racetrack, while in terms of comfort and equipment it is simply ideal for all roads. Its chassis and suspension, elegant body in innovative lightweight technology, as well as wide range of luxury equipment and ten-cylinder high-speed engine gives car a dynamic and impressive performance.
BMW's high-speed engine concept allows an optimum gearbox and final drive transmission ratio in all cases, thus guaranteeing impressive thrust and momentum on road at all times. The engine control unit has ionic current technology serving to detect any tendency of engine to knock, misfire and suffer mis-combustion. This intelligent control unit is able to sense any tendency to knock via spark plug in each cylinder, checking correct ignition setting and recognizing any tendency to misfire and thus allowing engine to run as closely as possible to its theoretical limits, developing optimum power and performance in process.
Variable dual-VANOS camshaft control ensures an optimum cylinder charge cycle. This means even more performance, an improved torque curve, optimum responsiveness, lower fuel consumption, and emissions reduced to a minimum.
