    All BMW owner thread

    Hi everyone, I'm starting a thread for all BMW owner. So we can share everything inside here. I'm currently driving G30, cheers and have a great weekend!
  2. This concept was shown early part of last month, and there is only 1 reason I did not post it till date: Its ugly nose job, which I hope it is an one off design effort, BUT... BMW Concept 4: Chris Bangle Come Back, All Is Forgiven BMW has previewed the design of the forthcoming M3 and M4 with the launch of the BMW Concept 4 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It shows that the new 4-Series will be a radical departure from its predecessor and have a face dominated by a kidney grille so big it could swallow two children. If only Chris Bangle (who, at the time, got his fair share of flak) was still designing Bimmers… The German car manufacturer’s press release appropriately starts out by discussing that grille. According to BMW, “the vertically oriented grille fits seamlessly into both the proportions of the front end and BMW’s illustrious past” and it evokes classics such as the 328 and 3.0 CSi. “The kidney grille has always been a signature feature of BMW cars,” added head of BMW Design Domagoj Dukec. “The BMW Concept 4 presents a confident and classy take on this iconic feature. At the same time, the BMW Concept 4 offers a look ahead to the expressive face of the 4 Series range.” Looking past the vertical kidney grille are slim and aggressive laser headlights as well as huge air intakes to gulp down air. The Concept 4 also features particularly expressive sides and slim, two-section mirrors that are partly finished in polished aluminium, as well as 21-inch wheels with a five-spoke pattern. As controversial as the design of the front may be, we suspect people will be more accommodating for the rear fascia. The most noteworthy feature out back are the flowing LED taillights, an angular bumper with a gloss black diffuser and large, rectangular-shaped chrome tailpipes.

    All New BMW 1 Series

    Read the newspaper this morning, saw this advertisement on BMW 1 Series. The list price is $133800. I am not sure with the performance of the BMW 1 series and it specifications. Is there anymore discount and over trade off from the list price. Need more information before going for a test drive. Thanks.
  8. I created this thread just for the BMW 3 series, many threads were opened on variants of 3 series but I thought be great to have one just for the 3 Series variants. Ever since I had a E46 I have always loved the 3 series more than any car I owned. This video sums up what this model is all about, practical, well balance, well sized sports saloon. I'll do a write-up on a ride soon enough. Hope other owners do the same. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ildXLLfm23o
  9. Hey guys, i'm contemplating whether to renew one of my company's BMW 523i F10 Highline. Below are some of the mods/upgrade i'm intending to do if i eventually get the car. Assuming the car is in 100% stock condition, i'd like some advice on the dos & don't from fellow tiong chia hia dis. 19" M sports Rims (What is the best tyre profile?) Shock Absorbers/Suspensions LCI Headlights ( The squarish headlights instead of the stock round ones.) Keyless Entry + Electronic Push Button (Not sure whether it comes with it?) M Sports Steering Wheel Chip tuning (Increase Torque/Bhp. Understand from some friends need to change Air Intake or something like that.) Quad Exhaust (LTA Friendly?) Interior change to Maroon (Any Idea where can find for this 10 Year Old Bimmer) Brembo Brake Kit (No idea what is 4 pot or 6 pot and which is sufficient) Key FOB (Any idea if can use the latest gen G Series Keys to Sync on an F10 Key?) Upgrade on display I'm also intending to do my own servicing + changing of filters. Need some advice on the type of EO and Filters for better performance.

    Tiny pothole wrecks a BMW 2 Series convertible

    TL:DR – A BMW 2 Series convertible goes over a small, unassuming pothole/manhole that causes its rear end to flip up, lose some parts from its undercarriage and swerve into another lane. It's incredible how a small pothole/manhole can cause thousands of dollar's worth of damage to a car. Here's an example recorded on a video forwarded many times on WhatsApp groups. From the footage, we know that this incident happened on 11th April 2021, Sunday around 5pm. As to where this is, I have a feeling it might be somewhere around Woodlands. But, if you have any idea, do let me know, and I'll update the article accordingly to warn fellow road users where to avoid. Update: Thank you everyone who identified the location. It's in Yishun. Poor BMW If you hit the pause button upon the point of impact, you'll notice that bits and pieces fall out from the undercarriage of the 2 Series. That’s as unlucky as this guy I reckon those parts are not going to be cheap to replace or repair. The pothole/manhole This image circulated together with the video. I'm assuming the cam car driver got out of the car and snapped a photo of the pothole/manhole.
  11. Quick Fact / Details - Production begins November 2018 - Uses B47 and B58 engines - 330e come with 48V electrical system - Model availabe for new launch (other models possible, but unlikely by end 2019): • 318d, B47, 148hp, manual and automatic, RWD • 320d, B47, 188hp, manual RWD, automatic RWD and xDrive • 330d, B57, 262hp, automatic RWD and xDrive • 320i, B48 168hp 1.6L or 181hp 2.0L depending on the market, automatic RWD and xDrive • 330i, B48, 255hp, automatic RWD and xDrive • M340i, B58, 385hp, automatic RWD (US only) and xDrive • 330e, B48 + electic motor, 248hp, automatic RWD and xDrive (xDrive US only)
  12. TL;DR – BMW driver steals a parallel carpark lot from another BMW by edging headfirst into the small vacant lot. The result? Video footage of some crap parking. Here’s a 47-second video of a Beemer stealing a carpark lot….from another Beemer! What’s happening? Here’s a rough breakdown of what’s happening. The 3 Series (car at the back) tailgates the 1 Series (car in front trying to park). Both their hazard lights are on. As the 1 Series tries to parallel park by reversing in, the 3 Series drives headfirst into the lot. Yes. Headfirst into a small parallel lot. The 1 series driver then comes out of the car to confront the 3 series driver (the conversation is inaudible, so we cannot tell what they’re saying to one another). What could have caused this? While we don’t know what happened before the recording starts, some people mention that the 1 Series could have been the culprit and not jump to conclusions. It’s a BMW. Not a VW. Head-in parallel parking I don’t know about you all, but it’s just cringy to watch. Yes, I understand the 3 Series is trying to get the lot before the 1 Series reverses in, but it doesn’t change the fact that it irks me, especially when you see the 3 Series stuck at an odd angle in the parallel lot. Online chatter Wah. This person raging siol. Are you the 1 Series driver? ‘B’rilliant. Honestly, most cars these days come with a dashcam installed. Try not to get caught doing stupid things on video so we don’t have to write about you.

  14. Hi, recently, when I drive over road bumps, sometimes I hear a knocking / metal creaking sound from underneath the car. Sound seems to be coming somewhere behind the driver seat. It does not happen every time I go over bump and more in cases when I go a bit faster over bigger bumps. Any idea what could be the problem? My car is about 6 year old BMW.

    The first-ever BMW i4

    I find that its quite a lazy design when they had the opportunity to go for a much more interesting design. They had chosen to stick to the pig nose grille (except its now closed, so it doesn't serve any function other than making a controversial styling statement) and added some fake aero diffusers at the lower valence of the rear bumper, plus the mandatory blue highlights to tell the world that its an "electrified" BMW. Interior was probably going to be similar to the current 3 series, that's why they didn't even bother to show in the video. It's another pity when they decided it isn't worth to keep that distinctive window design from the initial concept, which mimicked the outline of the pair of kidneys at the front.
  19. For research purposes, what are your favorite concept car designs you've seen in the recent years? Mine is definitely the BMW Vision Next 100, just because it looks sick as hell.

  21. hi all. I'm looking to buy a COE car. my budget is $40 to $45. I don't mind getting a car with a few years COE left and then renew it for another 5 or 10 years depending on the durability of the car etc. I was hoping to get advice as to which car I should purchase and what should I be wary of. If you were me, which of these 5 cars would you consider buying. If you have a preference out of these 5 cars I've listed below, please also state what changes I need to do to the car and the rough pricing for them at the workshop.

  22. Sexy is the word. @mercury1 @vratenza this one for your consideration? Munich. BMW consistently continues to pursue the brand’s current model offensive whilst developing an innovative vehicle concept for the premium compact segment. During the annual results press conference, BMW AG CEO Harald Krüger will announce the presentation of the first BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe. With the sporty and elegant four-door coupe, the premium automobile manufacturer is adding to its range in the compact segment a particularly designoriented model for modern, urban target groups. The concept of a four-door coupe, already successful in higher vehicle classes, will in future combine a dynamic charisma and an expressive design with a high degree of everyday suitability also in the premium compact segment. The first BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe will make its word debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2019, with the worldwide market launch beginning in the spring of 2020. The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe sets new accents in individuality, aesthetics and emotion in the premium compact segment.

As an exclusive alternative to the classic saloon, the four-door coupe addresses all target groups that prefer a sophisticated design and a self-assured look in the compact segment as well. Some video & spy shots to quench your thirst.
  23. The new BMW 5 Series scores a full house with its suite of updates, but we highlight three technological and two efficiency features in particular which we think make it worthy of the lot in your house! In addition to the new BMW 5 Series' heightened sense of outward authority, BMW has graced its mid-sized sedan with a winning hand of upgrades that makes sure it stays ahead of the competition. sgCarMart looks at the three most impressive tech changes and two new efficiency measures that make it your home away from home. BMW Operating System 7.0 and optional 12.3-inch Control Display With the new 5 Series' Operating System 7.0, BMW brings the convenience of having your own, personal butler along with you wherever you go. Keep in touch with your closest mates with the new Android Auto smartphone integration, or better yet, make use of the Concierge Service to effortlessly find the right place to eat even while you're out and about. Those who opt for the Live Cockpit Professional will also get both the cockpit instrument display and central control display upgraded to 12.3-inches. The new cockpit instrument display is capable of providing 3D renderings of the car surroundings, making sure that navigating around the city is a breeze in the 5 Series. Meanwhile, the scope of configuration of the central control display has been upgraded to provide easier access to information, so you never have to fuss around to look for any information you need of the car. Adaptive LED lights with matrix function You don't tolerate insufficient lighting in your home, so why should you when out on the road? The LED head lights of the 5 Series now come with adaptive cornering lights and non-dazzling high beam with matrix technology so you always have a clear idea of what is happening on the road. The system even uses info from the GPS to decide what levels of illumination are necessary, so you always get optimised lighting for every driving situation. And for those who need greater illumination, BMW's Laserlight is now available as an option on all 5 Series variants. The Laserlight system is capable of nearly doubling the range of the conventional head lights by emitting a non-dazzling high beam at speeds over 60 km/h, while also boosting the effectiveness of the low beam when driving on curving roads, ensuring you always have sufficient vision of the road ahead. BMW's upgraded driving assistance feature now make driving through even congested roads as relaxing as settling into your favourite couch at home. Lane departure warning now comes with lane return, for example, meaning that should you accidently leave the lane, not only will the steering wheel vibrate to give you an additional warning, but the car can also automatically steer you back into the lane itself. Parking assistant Equally impressive is the parking assistant feature, which allows the car to take over control of the accelerator, brakes and steering in order to deliver you a truly mindless parking experience, regardless of whether you're parking in a parallel or a perpendicular space. And if reversing out of a dead end is too much of a chore, the 5 Series can do it all for you as well, thanks to its new reversing assistant, which constantly remembers your steering inputs when driving at low speeds so as to be able to trace back the exact line you last took. With the car helping you to get the steering angle just right, all you need to do is to control its speed and look out for any obstacles in its path. Your home runs on electricity for emission-free power, and now the 5 Series can too. Well, nearly. With a plug-in hybrid drivetrain now being offered, you can whet your appetite for electric power while cutting down on your tailpipe emissions. new tech But those who don't have the option to charge from their homes need not fret. BMW is also introducing mild-hybrid technology so all can benefit from the efficiency gains of electrification. The new tech means that even those who don't want the trouble of plugging in their car can still benefit from Brake Energy Regeneration, while getting a taste of the instantaneous torque that comes from an electric motor thanks to the electric boost effect of the 48V electric starter-generator. You don't compromise on design at home and now you need not settle for compromises with the 5 Series as well. Thanks to BMW's new 20-inch Individual Air Performance Wheels, those who are looking to specify larger rims on their executive sedan can do so while reaping added efficiency gains. The new wheels achieve this by utilising innovative light-alloys and are designed to reduce the aerodynamic drag coefficient by around 5% compared to conventional rim designs, and mark the first time a carmaker has combined cast aluminium with aerodynamically optimised inlays into a single wheel. As an added bonus, those who opt for the plug-in hybrid model together with the aero rims will also improve their car's electric range by an average of one kilometre*. car Looking for your next home away from home? This new 5 Series will do nicely. *This value is based on the new WLTP test cycle and is translated back into a NEDC-equivalent value in order to ensure comparability between the vehicles.
