Now, when it comes to performance, you will see the dedication of BMW in providing great automotive solutions in their vehicle’s engine and powerhouse. Such that include highly durable engine parts and systems including your vehicle’s starting system. And this starting system has different components to enable it to function. The spark plug is among BMW Spark Plug Wires BMW Spark Plug Wire

Spark plugs are important in your BMW since they are designed to function as ignition device used to ignite aerosol gasoline with electric sparks. With this function, they are considered as the heart of the vehicle’s ignition system. You can’t possibly start your BMW without spark plugs. However, this is not all about spark plugs alone. They can’t also function without their sub-components like the BMW spark plug wires.

Your BMW spark plug wires functions by transferring the electric sparks created by sparkplugs to the other systems of your vehicle. Basically, these wires have to deliver thousands of volts the ignition system and other electrical devices so your vehicle can render great performance. This, indeed, is a tough function. Thus, your BMW spark plug wires, in due time, will aged and wear. And damages like these could cause your vehicle to run inefficiently; it would be hard to start the vehicle in the first place.

BMW Six-Cylinder Engine | BMW Greensboro, NC

New BMW Six-Cylinder Engine, S55 | Greensboro, NC

BMW Greensboro, NC

The new BMW M3 Sedan and new BMW M4 Coupe from BMW M see a return to a six-in-line engine configuration, as used on the second and third generations of this iconic sports car. The new turbocharged unit, which can develop more than 7,500 rpm, combines the best of both worlds – on the one hand a high-revving design for instant response, linear power delivery over a wide engine speed range and an unmistakable and characterful engine note, and on the other hand BMW TwinPower Turbo technology for maximized torque over a broad rpm range. Efficiency is another important component of this new powerplant.

The new engine sees a slight power upgrade over the previous V8 to approximately 430 hp, while peak torque has been increased by well over 30 per cent to substantially more than 500 Newton metres, and is maintained over a very wide rev band. The new powerplant also boasts excellent fuel consumption, with an improvement of more than 25 per cent over the previous model’s figures, while emissions are already EU6-compliant

BMW Greensboro, NCMore power, more than 30% increase of torque, more than 25% increase of efficiency.

Six-cylinder in-line high-revving, turbocharged engine.

The new BMW M3 Sedan and new BMW M4 Coupe from BMW M GmbH see a return to a six-in-line engine configuration, as used on the second and third generations of this iconic sports car. The new turbocharged unit, which can develop more than 7,500 rpm, combines the best of both worlds – on the one hand a high-revving design for instant response, linear power delivery over a wide engine speed range and an unmistakable and characterful engine note, and on the other hand BMW TwinPower Turbo technology for maximised torque over a broad rpm range. A further hallmark of this engine is its outstanding efficiency.

More power, more than 30% increase of torque, more than 25% increase of efficiency.

The BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology comprises two mono-scroll turbochargers, High Precision Direct Injection, VALVETRONIC variable valve timing and Double-VANOS seamlessly variable camshaft timing. The variable valve and camshaft timing provide fully variable control of intake valve lift. This allows the engine to deliver its power smoothly and efficiently, resulting in lower fuel consumption and emissions. At the same time, throttle response is even sharper than before.

Optimized responsiveness through impulse charging. Flow-enhanced manifolds. Charge pressure control designed to optimize dynamics. Electric wastegate actuator for high precision.

Optimized crankcase and crankshaft design.

The six-cylinder engine features a closed-deck crankcase design, which increases rigidity and allows cylinder pressures to be increased for maximized power output. And instead of liners, the cylinder bores feature a twin-wire arc-sprayed coating, which results in a significant reduction in engine weight.

BMW Greensboro, NC

Track-ready cooling system and engine oil supply for outstanding performance.

The exceptional performance of the BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe also demands an exceptionally sophisticated thermal management system for the engine and ancillary units. To ensure optimal operating temperatures both in short everyday trips around town and also when the vehicle is being driven flat out on the track, the M GmbH engineers developed a highly efficient cooling system, comprising a main radiator plus additional radiators for the high- and low-temperature circuits, turbocharger and transmission, while a temperature-stabilizing electric water pump ensures that the engine can develop its full performance at all times.

The engine oil supply system, too, reflects the extensive motor sport experience of BMW M GmbH. The low-weight magnesium oil sump, for example, features a special cover to limit movement of the oil under the effects of strong dynamic lateral acceleration. Under extreme longitudinal acceleration and deceleration, an oil extraction pump and a sophisticated oil return system situated close to the turbocharger likewise help to maintain uninterrupted oil circulation. Oil is therefore supplied continuously to all engine components in all driving situations – whether in everyday motoring or during hard driving on the track.

BMW X6 vs. Mercedes-Benz M-Class Coupé | Greensboro, NC

At the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz announced the M-Class Coupe which will rival the BMW X6. The concept vehicle previews the final design which will be slightly toned down.

10155460_10152575399597454_6478226770667697226_n

While in the case of the X6 the practical conceived X5 serves as the base, Mercedes-Benz uses their ML as a technical platform for M-Class Coupe. The current generation of M-Class has been on the market since 2011 and is built at the U.S. plant in Tuscaloosa, where also Mercedes MLC Coupe could run off the assembly line.

The grille and headlights are very GLA with a more dynamic. The many folds and creases in the hood and doors also give the concept a sportier look inspired by the GLA again. Mercedes says the rear end was inspired by the S-Class Coupe.

The slopping curve of the roof is actually quite reminiscent of the X6, with a combination of modern and sportiness in a single package.

“The Concept Coupé SUV stands out thanks to its extreme proportions and in doing so interprets our hall mark coupé design idiom,” says Mercedes-Benz design boss, Gorden Wagener.

At 4935mm in length, 2044mm in width and 1739mm in height, the Concept Coupé SUV is said to closely mirror its production sibling in size. If these figures are retained, the MLC will be 58mm longer, 61mm wider and 49mm higher than the existing first-generation BMW X6.

Mercedes-Benz has fitted the Concept Coupé SUV with twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre petrol V6. The new unit produces 328 hp at 5500 rpm and 354lb-ft between 1400 and 4000rpm.

10291239_10152575399807454_2064076579155015097_n

This is 22bhp and 59lb ft more than that delivered by the turbocharged 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder direct injection petrol engine used by the soon-to-be-superseded X6 xDrive35i.

It offers the choice between Comfort, Slippery, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual – the latter of which allows the driver to mix and match various elements, including settings for the throttle, steering and damper stiffness.

We put together a photo comparison between the M-Class Coupe and the current generation X6 which also be replaced later this year.

Automobile Manufacturers Ditch Side Mirrors in 2017 – Greensboro, NC

The 12-member Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, which represents such companies as BMW, General Motors, Toyota and Volkswagen, filed a petition with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to use sideview cameras instead of mirrors.

tesla-model-X-prototype-front-left-side-view

Tesla and the Alliance argue that cameras could be just as safe while offering gains in aerodynamics. This is because side mirrors have to jut out farther from the car to be effective, and that creates drag.

“In light of future greenhouse gas and corporate average fuel economy requirements beginning in 2017,” their petition says, “camera-based systems represent an opportunity to increase vehicle fuel efficiency through improved aerodynamics by eliminating externally mounted mirrors.”

The filling goes hand in hand with the latest ruling by NHTSA that will require rearview cameras in all light-duty vehicles produced after mid-2018. Tesla sees eliminating side mirrors as a way to extend the driving range of its electric cars.

The use of 360 camera systems and rear view cameras come to support the filling and the automakers that safety will remain at the highest levels.

It remains unknown what BMW’s position is but we have no doubt that Elon Musk will continue to push this issue.

2015 Audi S8 Test Drive And Review | Greensboro, NC

2015 Audi S8 Test Drive And Review | Greensboro, NC

2015-Audi-S8-Shawn-Molnar-Sun-Media-Autonet.ca-01-750x500It was a pleasant surprise to check my email and find an invite to drive Audi’s latest iteration of their flagship S8 sedan in my inbox. I’d long respected Audi for its engineering prowess – the Audi Quattro S1 Group-B rally car and all-conquering modern LMP1 LeMans racers come to mind – but as a BMW driver with a distinct distain for front-heavy, understeering cars, I flew to Dusseldorf for the S8 launch with guarded excitement.

Audi has, after all, had a longstanding marriage with understeer. Just how does Audi’s flagship compare to the best from BMW and Alpina? A long, unrestricted stretch of Autobahn linked up with a treacherously curvy B-road served as judge and jury. I took notes. 

Audi’s excellent interior build quality is striking and beautiful – horsepower and top-speed concerns fall into the shadows of the S8’s leather, carbon-fibre and metal-covered dash while running your hands across the curvaceous cabin. The seats are firm and supportive, holding you in sport-ready luxury. Okay – they’re not Recaros, but this is no Ferrari. It’s an Audi S8 – interestingly enough, the first car ever built upon an all-aluminum space frame, right in front of the world’s second aluminum-framed car, the Ferrari 360 Modena.

Audi’s excellent interior build quality is striking and beautiful – horsepower and top-speed concerns fall into the shadows of the S8’s leather, carbon-fibre and metal-covered dash while running your hands across the curvaceous cabin. The seats are firm and supportive, holding you in sport-ready luxury. Okay – they’re not Recaros, but this is no Ferrari. It’s an Audi S8 – interestingly enough, the first car ever built upon an all-aluminum space frame, right in front of the world’s second aluminum-framed car, the Ferrari 360 Modena.

Impressive as the S8’s high-speed cruising proved to be, it was the sedan’s performance in the twisty bits that impressed me the most.

Hunting apexes in Audi’s S8 proved a worthy pastime, and there were plenty of apexes to be had on the sprawling backroads of Dusseldorf’s rural countryside. Audi’s elimination of weight by way of Aluminum construction technology gives the S8 a dual personality. On one hand the machine proves itself a stately executive sedan; on the other hand, it proves itself a plus-size sports car.

Throwing the nose into corners is best accomplished with trail-braking, firmly planting the front tires into the road surface with ample grip for turn-in. The chassis follows nicely, always stable and predictable, maintaining a hint of understeer throughout. Only when pressing on near 10/10ths pace will the S8 reveal some oversteer, requiring quick flicks of opposite lock steering. The rear-bias torque distribution helps the S8 assume a more rear-drive dynamic character, but it’s ultimately an easy to use supercar for four. It will make any driver appear talented as it seamlessly puts all 520 horses to the ground sans-drama. Exiting corners in haste is typically a point and shoot exercise – no fancy car control skills or Piloti shoes required.

How the S8 stacks up against its most aggressive German competition is easy to discern after having vetted all parties. Where the Alpina B7 hangs its tail out for a lurid, smoky slide, the S8 finds grip and powers through the corner. True, you can find grip in the Alpina, but you’ve got to manage it; it requires finesse behind the wheel to drive the Alpina quickly whereas the S8 just sticks – no dancing with the petals required. Where the 760iL requires a timid right foot, the S8 beckons full power, and neatly lays it on the road surface.

The S8 is a refined sports sedan, one that doesn’t wish to make a big display of its performance. Nor does the S8 wish to challenge its driver, demanding car control skills from behind the wheel. It just welcomes more power and translates it to hunkered-down speed, reliably, and without a fuss.

2015-Audi-S8-Shawn-Molnar-Sun-Media-Autonet.ca-26

The feeling you get from behind the wheel bears the rigid frame beneath, there is a certain solidity to the S8 that even the BMWs don’t quite match. The engine torque tugging on the front wheels distorts slightly what would otherwise be a vivid tactile picture of the contact patch; when it comes to steering feel the 7-series has a slight advantage.

Which car you ought to have in your driveway really depends on your driving style, local climate and highways. If you live on an alpine mountain pass with steep inclines to your front door – the S8 wins hands down. But if you’re idea of a rewarding commute to work involves drifting through second-gear corners, the BMW is your weapon.

Of course, an aggressive left-right flick into the right corner can get the S8 to rotate nicely, evoking memories of the Audi Quattro rally car dominating the segment. In this top-shelf segment of German super-sedans, you really can’t lose.

BMW of North America Recall List | Greensboro, NC

BMW of North America Recall List | Greensboro, NC

BMW of North America said it is voluntarily recalling about 156,137 2010-2012 model-year vehicles in the United States because of a potential defect with the variable camshaft timing.

P0000694-750x500

BMW says the recall will address a problem with the variable camshaft timing, also known as VANOS, which could reduce engine power and further cause damage if not repaired.

“The unit rotates the intake or exhaust camshaft in order to alter the timing of the lift of the respective intake or exhaust valves,” a BMW spokesman said for Automotive News.

In a statement, BMW said that “in very rare cases, the bolts holding the variable camshaft timing unit housing may become loose or, in extreme cases, break.”

Should that happen, the “check engine” or “service engine soon” light comes on followed by the display of a “check control message.”

“If ignored, the problem can become progressively worse, eventually leading to no start conditions, stalling and engine damage,” BMW said.

The affected models are:

• 2010-12 1 series

• 2010-12 3 series

• 2010-2012 5 series

• 2010-12 5 series Gran Turismo

• 2012 6 series

• 2010-2012 X3

• 2010-12 X5

• 2010-12 X6

• 2010-12 Z4

New brake system for the BMW M3 and M4 | Eurobahn Motorsports Greensboro, NC

New brake system for the BMW M3 and M4 | Greensboro, NC

Interview with M engineer Klaus Dullinger on the new brake system for the BMW M3 and M4 The BMW M3 and BMW M4 both feature …

 bmw-m3-m4-brakesThe BMW M3 and BMW M4 both feature a new type of brake system. Let us begin with the M compound brakes – what is special about them and in what ways do they differ from the M compound brakes installed in the previous model?

Klaus Dullinger: M compound brakes have a grey-cast friction ring in a floating arrangement that is connected by pins to the aluminium brake cover. The pin assembly means that as the temperature increases, it is able to expand freely in a radial direction and subsequently cool down again without any residual deformation. This connecting system has been in used since the second generation of the BMW M3.

What is different about the new BMW M3 and BMW M4 is that fixed-calliper brakes are now fitted to the front and rear axles, with four pistons at the front and two at the rear. The predecessor had heavy single-piston sliding callipers.

All You Need To Know About The BMW M3/M4 Brake Systemm-compound-brakes

Is it necessary toallow M compound brakes a running-in period when the components are new?

Yes. Drivers should be more restrained in their driving for the first tank full of fuel and avoid maximum deceleration wherever possible.

What happens in these first 500 kilometers?

It concerns the so-called ‘bedding’ of the brake linking on the friction ring: it is necessary for the two surfaces to become adjusted to each other. Moreover, the 20 µm thick cross hatch of new brake discs wears away, which promotes the bedding of the new brake pad on the new disc.

bmw-m-disc

Friction ring of the M compound brakes.

Why is it that with perforated brake discs in particular, you occasionally see slight cracks?

Cracks form in particular wherever relatively cold discs are suddenly subjected to a large load. The cracks that occur are limited to the surface areas. For instance, if you have been driving your car fully laden on the motorway for an extended period without braking and then you are suddenly called upon to perform an emergency braking manoeuvre, the brake disc will become very hot in a very short space of time – in such a case, the temperature can increase from around 20 degrees to 450 degrees. If the brake disc is required to perform in this manner several times in rapid succession, it is quite possible for surface cracks to form in the cast material of the friction ring – especially in the area around the perforation holes. In sports cars, cracks like these are, more than anything, a sign that they are being subjected to the use for which they were designed, and they have no negative effect on the service life of the brake disc or its braking performance. When it is time to change the brake pad, it is also necessary for the car dealer to inspect the brake disc.

Will racing pads again be available for the M compound brakes of the new BMW M3 and BMW M4?

Yes, a new sport pad will be available under the name of ‘M Performance Sport Brake Pad’; this was developed directly alongside the new brakes.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of these sport pads?

The life expectancy of these pads is considerably longer at the kinds of high temperatures that typically occur on the racetrack. While the standard pad can display a drop in friction coefficient at high temperatures, known as fading, the friction coefficient value of sport pads is far more stable.

In general, operational noise can be generated with any high-performance brake under certain driving conditions. However, with sport pads, we do without any form of comfort factor in the car components, which means that considerable braking noise is simply a fact of life for people who choose to use them.

Sport pads are more expensive and act considerably more fiercely on the brake discs. Disc wear is several times higher than that of standard brake pads. Which is why we require that every time a set of sport pads is fitted, new discs also have to be installed. For this reason, we will be offering sport pad kits, consisting of the actual pads plus the required brake discs.

Why is it so important to perform a cooling-down lap after driving on the racetrack?

It is very important for the material in the brake components to have time to cool down in an air stream. If you park your car while temperatures of 500 degrees are still prevailing on the brake discs, the considerable heat will be transferred throughout the entire brake system. And the brake pads too will absorb energy from the hot brake discs. The heat transfer progresses through the back plate and damping plates of standard pads into the brake callipers. In addition to the damping layer of the damping plates, the piston seals and dust shields can also be damaged, as can the surface coating of the brake callipers. Leaving brakes to cool in a stationary position is extremely unfavourable when brake discs are at a temperature of up to 500 degrees. By performing a cooling-down lap, the brake temperature generally falls to below 200 degrees.

Do such high temperatures occur in normal driving conditions?

No, normally such temperatures do not occur when subjecting a vehicle to normal use. It would be necessary to perform several braking manoeuvres in rapid succession, from full speed to stationary, before such levels would be reached.

M carbon ceramic brakes are also available for the first time for the new BMW M3 and BMW M4. What are the advantages of these brakes?

The rotating masses in M carbon ceramic brakes are around 12.5 kg lighter compared with standard M compound brakes.

On the other hand, these brakes are dimensioned to offer significantly more in terms of performance. In other words, instead of 18“ M compound brakes, we fit 19“ M carbon ceramic brake discs. We deploy a six-piston calliper on the front axle and a four-piston fixed-calliper brake on the rear axle. The operational surfaces of the brake pads are appreciably higher. This means that the M carbon ceramic brake offers a considerable advantage in terms of performance. So on the racetrack in particular, the M carbon ceramic brake offers more stability.

A further advantage is that the disc is not so susceptible to corrosion, which means that no rust films form on the friction ring, a phenomenon that is well known in grey-cast constructions.

With conventional brake discs, corrosion is more likely to occur with low mileages, long idle periods and low usage, because the minimum load level required to initiate the disc brake’s self-cleaning mechanism is not attained. Corroded brake discs generate a rubbing effect when the brakes are applied, which in the majority of cases can no longer be removed.

However, this does not occur with M carbon ceramic brakes, since they do not have a problem with corrosion.

m-carbon-brakes

All You Need To Know About The BMW M3/M4 Brake System

Already in new condition – due to the different material compositions of friction layer and disc body – the friction surfaces are covered wih an distinctive stress reliving structure.

Furthermore, they are less subject to wear. The brake pads wear more slowly, and under normal use, the carbon ceramic brake disc will last as long as the car itself; the silicon carbide friction coating is virtually non-wearing. However, on the racetrack, the brake discs may be subject to oxidative wear. When the discs are repeatedly heated to temperatures of 600 degrees and over, the fibres within the brake disc burn up.

This means that the disc does not become progressively thinner but lighter. To detect the level to which this may have occurred, three wear indicators per friction coating are applied to the disc, set apart at angles of 120 degrees. This allows the dealer to recognise when discs have been subjected to high levels of oxidative wear. The brake pad service team then takes out the brake disc and weighs it. If it weighs less than the minimum permitted weight, the disc must be replaced.

Are there any disadvantages with carbon ceramic brakes?

The production process is much more complex. One step involves siliconising the friction ring for a period of 24 hours at 1,300 degrees.

The carbon fibre-reinforced silicon-carbide brake disc has a total throughput time of several weeks with the manufacturer before it is ready.

This explains why the purchase price of the M carbon ceramic brake is that much higher. However, this is partly balanced out by the lower level of wear.

This system does have a number of special characteristics, of which you should be aware:

Brake discs and brake pads in M carbon ceramic brakes only achieve a favourable wear and contact pattern after around 1,000 km.

Material-specific properties mean that increased operational noise may be experienced when braking, particularly in wet conditions, just before the vehicle comes to a halt. However, this does not affect the brakes’ performance, operational safety or stability.

All You Need To Know About The BMW M3/M4 Brake System

It is a good idea to clean both brake discs and callipers with a steam jet or high-pressure cleaner before putting the vehicle through an automatic car wash or washing bay facility, to avoid the formation of encrustations or deposits of, for example, salt crystals, when the car stands stationary after cleaning. The cleaning effect of such automatic washing systems in the vehicle’s wheel areas is generally not sufficient to ensure this. As with all brake systems, it is important to ensure that any rim cleaner used is only applied to the wheel rims.

If the brake disc and pads become wet, all brakes undergo a drop in their friction coefficient. M carbon ceramic brakes normally have a considerably higher coefficient of friction than conventional brakes, and they feel considerably fiercer in operation. However, under the impact of moisture and road salt, for example after using a car wash, or when condensation has formed overnight, the braking effect may be equivalent to that of a conventional brake system. This may be perceived as reduced braking performance, but it can be compensated for by applying more pressure with the brake pedal; this should be continued until the pads and discs have fully dried out. Since the difference in frictional coefficient between dry and wet brakes is higher than normal with M carbon ceramic brakes, it is felt all the more clearly by the driver.

Which brakes would you personally choose?

The M compound brakes are fantastic but the M carbon ceramic brakes offer even higher performance. I would personally go for the M carbon ceramic brakes, despite the higher price.

BMW Strut Assembly : BMW Service in Greensboro, NC

BMW Strut Assembly: BMW Service in Greensboro, NC

Does your car give you an uneasy and uncomfortable feeling as it lean its way every time you are on a tight curve? Or does it rock from side to side when you are changing lanes. Rear_suspension_strut_L_28.07.2010

If your car is having a drift form left to right whenever you apply brakes firmly at a high speed, well the problem then must be your strut assembly. A badly shaped strut can affect greatly the performance of your car when it comes to speed and durability. Along with it, a worn out shock can also affect you car’s breaking effectiveness.

We all know that shocks are the one responsible in giving us a comfortable ride in our car. But what we don’t know with them is that they also influence the control and handling characteristics of your vehicle. Struts along with the shocks can wear out gradually because of the constant bump your car usually gets. Excessive driving on a rocky surface can extremely affect the life of your strut. Struts are the first in line from being battered from extreme hostile that the underneath of your car usually gets.

Usually on BMW cars, strut assembly is composed of a strut housing that provides the rigorous structural support for the assembly, a coil spring are used to support the vehicles weight and a damping unit within the strut housing are the one who controls the movement of the spring and the suspension. Steering knuckle is being attached also to the bottom of the strut body in which it is connected in the lower arm control using a lower ball joint. The assembly also includes a jounce bumper that is located under the upper spring seat. The main purpose of this part is to limit the travel that was made by the suspension by not allowing the components to hit each other.

Finally, in the end of the strut assembly there is a large nut that holds everything together in place. Vehicle strut assembly must be always checked at least once a year to ensure its conjunction to the alignment of the wheel. So, if you need a strut assembly for your BMW then you came to the right place — Eurobahn Motorsports. You don’t have to worry because we can install in as well.
