BMW, Germany’s flagship automotive manufacturing company, has come a long way. About 70 years ago, its primary market (aero engines) and capital equipment were both in ruins. Even during the German recovery period in the 50s, BMW did not prosper despite economic improvements everywhere. By 1959, BMW was so bankrupt, that a rescue by Mercedes served as its only way of staying afloat.
Today, BMW is one of the most respected companies and recognizable brands in the world. The BMW Group, according to its latest financial report, continues its leading position in premium segments of the international automobile markets.
Retail margins on BMW cars are relatively high. The company maintains tight control over its distribution network. This control supports the brand image and also aids market segmentation. BMW cars are positioned differently and priced very differently in the various national markets. The same tight control is reflected in BMW’s relationships with suppliers and BMW service centers who mostly have continuing long associations with the company. BMW’s activities are focused almost exclusively on two product ranges – high-performance saloon cars and motorbikes which reflect its competitive strengths. The company also uses the brand to support a range of motoring accessories. BMW is a company with a well-executed strategy. It is a company which came – after several false starts – to recognize its distinctive capabilities and chose the market, and subsequent markets, which realized its full potential.
Models of BMW Cars:
1 Series: Launched in late 2004, the 1 Series is a compact hatchback that sits between BMW’s MINI line of cars and the 3 Series models. The MINI, based on the famed British-made Mini Cooper, is a separate line of vehicles owned by BMW since 2000. The 1 Series first debuted as a 5-door hatchback, with the 3-door model appearing in 2007. More than 149,000 1 Series models were sold in its first year. We have a team of BMW approved mechanics who can take care of all the problems related to your BMW model.
3 Series: The venerable 3 Series debuted in 1975 and has emerged as BMW’s reliable compact executive car. It’s offered as a station wagon, coupe, 4-door sedan or convertible. This mid-range priced vehicle has exceeded sales of other less expensive similar class cars in Europe because of its durability. It’s BMW’s best seller.
5 Series: Up a notch from the 3 Series is the 5 Series. It was launched in 1975 as a mid-size executive car and offered today only as a 4-door sedan and station wagon. It’s equipped with several engine options including the 282-horsepower 4.4-liter V-8, the 225-horsepower 3-liter straight-6, and the 400-horsepower 4.9-liter V-8. The M5 Motorsport version is equipped with a 507-horsepower V-10 that can hit about 155 mph. We provide classic BMW Service to all our customers with only one motive in mind that next time you don’t have to search for any other BMW service center near Manhattan beach.
6 Series: The grand touring sport coupe, BMW’s high-end luxury line, had a production run from 1976-89 and then returned in 2003. The sports car-style 6 Series is offered as a coupe and convertible. In addition to the straight-6 and V-8, it also comes equipped with the 507-horsepower V-10 and the 286-horsepower 3-liter Twin Turbo Diesel.
7 Series: The ultra-luxury 7 Series executive sedan is the flagship vehicle of BMW. Launched in 1977, the 7 Series’ most ambitious model is the Hydrogen 7, which runs on gasoline and hydrogen. Drivers are allowed to switch what fuel they want to use. However, only 100 Hydrogen 7 cars have been manufactured for testing purposes.
X3 and X5: The X3 crossover, a passenger car with truck-like qualities, was launched in 2003. It’s an all-wheel drive vehicle that is powered by either a gasoline or diesel 4-cylinder engine or the larger straight-6 also found in the 3 Series. The X3 perhaps possesses more truck characteristics than a crossover usually offers a stiff ride and somewhat plain interior. The X5 is BMW’s mid-size luxury SUV that was launched in 2000 and powered by a 253-horsepower fuel-injected 4.8-liter engine among other options. We are one of the very few BMW service centers who can take care of your X3 and X5 with top quality and reasonable price.
Z4: The popular 2-seater sports roadster Z4 succeeded the Z3 in 2002. Since its introduction, more than 100,000 Z4s have been built. By 2008, a retractable hardtop was offered. The 258-horsepower 3-liter version Z4 has a top speed of 155 mph and can hit 62 mph from a standstill in 5.1 seconds.
