You Can Now Subscribe For BMW Cars With ‘Access by BMW’ Subscription Service

Published

New, 2018 BMW M5

BMW is the latest premium automaker to offer a subscription service for its vehicles. Like “Care by Volvo” and “Book by Cadillac” service, the German automaker’s “Access by BMW” gives you free access to a wide selection of vehicles for a flat monthly rate.

BMW’s subscriptions service is available at a two tiers — Legend and M — that provide members with unlimited access to a diverse range of cars and cover all maintenance, insurance, BMW Roadside Assistance costs, and vehicle depreciation. The base “Legend” tier commands a 2,000 monthly rate and lets your choose from BMW’s standard vehicles, including plug-in hybrid models and even the M2, while the more premium, $3,700 per month “M” tier serves the rest of the M lineup, including the new M5, the X5M and X6M, on a silver platter. There’s no limit to how often you can switch cars.

Members use an app to book a car, after which a concierge personally delivers it most closely matching the member’s convenience. Cars arrive freshly detailed and fully-fueled, with personal preferences already pre-set.

Ian Smith, CEO of BMW Group Financial Services USA and Region Americas, stated:

“As customers continue to explore the growing mobility market, service-related offerings are becoming more in demand. With Access by BMW, our members will enjoy the freedom of personal mobility with access across a broad range of our highly emotional vehicles” said “Subscription-based services are of emerging interest for our customers, and we’re excited to be offering a mobility service to meet their individual and evolving needs.”

BMW is testing the program with a pilot in Nashville, Tennessee. If successful, Access by BMW will be expanded to the company’s dealers nationwide and additional tiers allowing access to even more models will be added.

Next BMW M3 Has RWD And 4WD Versions, Which Will You Choose?

Published

on

New, 2019 BMW 3 Series M Performance Parts

The M3 will take a page from the latest M5, but without losing grip of its roots.

When the sixth-generation BMW M3 and M4 hit the market, they will reportedly be offered with both rear-wheel and all-wheel driver versions.

The rear-wheel drive M3 / M4 — ‘M3 and M4 Pure’, as they are known internally — are intended for purists, while those looking for outright performance will certainly go for the all-wheel drive variants.

According to , the all-wheel drive M3 / M4 can only be had with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission and will have a bit more power to work with since the manual transmission in the purist M3 / M4 can’t handle the same amount of torque. It will also be a bit different aesthetically, featuring a different front fascia and set of wheels.

BMW hasn’t announced when the next M3 and M4 will debut, but it will add three additional go-faster models to the lineup overtime, including a competition package.

So, which one will it be for you — the rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive M3 / M4? Let us know in the comments below, including your reason(s) why.

BMW Creates Meteoric M850i Night Sky For Outer Space Geeks

BMW M850i Night Sky Meteorite

The unique 8 Series features meteorite inlay and 3D-printed brake calipers.

BMW has revealed the M850i xDrive Coupe Night Sky, a one-off take on the new M850i created by the company’s Individual Manufaktur team for astronomy fans.

The car features an outer space theme. Inside, hunks of meteoric rock adorn the center console, start/stop button, shift lever, iDrive controller and other surfaces, while Widmanstätten surface pattern of meteorites can be found on the center console’s trim finishers, brake discs, exterior mirror caps and the front splitters.

For the non-space geeks among us, Widmanstätten patterns are the result of iron-nickel crystals forming on meteors over the course of around 10 million years and cannot be reproduced on Earth.

Not content with the space theme, BMW created new lightweight brake calipers using generative design processes (3D printing). The pieces manage to be 30 percent lighter than the 8 Series’ usual calipers without negatively affecting necessary strength characteristics.

The one-off Night Sky edition is finished in San Marino Blue metallic paint over a black base coat. Its debut coincided with a meteor shower that took place overnight from January 3 – 4, resulting from the Earth briefly passing through the orbit of the asteroid 2003 EH, with fragments from the asteroid entering our planet’s atmosphere and burning up.

Some of these meteoric fragments were incorporated into the BMW Individual M850i Night Sky’s interior.

BMW, Porsche’s Ultrafast EV Charger Adds 62 Miles In 3 Minutes

BMW, Porsche Ultrafast EV Charger

It only takes 15 minutes for an electric vehicle’s batteries to be charged from 10 percent to 80 percent capacity.

BMW and Porsche, along with several other partner companies, have made great progress developing an ultrafast EV charging system.

Their so-called FastCharge research program has resulted in a 450 kW prototype charging station that can add 62 miles (100 km) of range in just three minutes or nearly fully charge a mostly depleted battery from 10 to 80 percent in just 15 minutes.

While the ability to charge an electric car in just a few minutes will be a boon for EV owners, today’s electric vehicles aren’t able to charge at 450 kilowatts. Tesla’s vehicles, for instance, utilize a 400-volt battery configuration, but Porsche and Audi’s FastCharge tech can handle higher voltage levels of up to 920 volts, which experts believe will become the norm.

Their charging station is able to handle so much current and voltage thanks to actively cooled cables that use a circulating water-glycol solution to manage temperature. The electric vehicle must also be compatible and use intelligent charging strategy that not only precools the battery before charging begins, but also monitors cell temperature during the charging process.

Suffice it to say, the long, tedious hours that it used to take to charge an electric car are almost a thing of the past.
