Michael asks…

How much does it cost to maintain your BMW 330i?

I purchased a 06 330i last week. The dealer “Cunnigham BMW” the worst dealer ever cheated me on the maintenance upgrade for 6 yrs 100k miles for $2600 bucks. They said i could change my mind and get the package off my BMW if i thought i didnt want it at a later time. I am trying to find out if 2600 bucks is worth for 2 years of upgrade?

Sandy asks…

Whats the difference between the BMW series 1 through 7?

Just wondering what the difference between the BMW series are, is it that a series 7 is better than a series 1, and what sort of difference are we talking about?

Administrator answers:

1 Series = smallest + cheapest
3 Series = smaller + more expensive
5 Series = midsize + even more expensive
and so on…

1 Series: Sub-compact hatchback which is currently sold only in Europe. It’s a tiny little commuter car with your base BMW features. It’s also pretty low on luxury. Cheapest BMW to purchase.

3 Series: Compact-Midsize sedan. BMW’s bread-and-butter vehicle. Awesome handling, four doors and is a competitor with the Lexus IS, Acura TL, Audi A4 and Infiniti G35, among others. Turbocharged engine that makes 300 hp is an option. Price starts reasonably in the mid-30s but gets really high with all those options like navigation and sport package.

5 Series: Midsize sedan which is competitor to Merc E-Class, Audi A6, Infiniti M and Lexus GS. This is for people who want BMW handling + functionality. Base engines puts out 215 hp, but more expensive models like the 550i make 360 hp. Luxurious interior, but once again, is extremely pricey if you add those options.

6 Series: Full-size luxury coupe or convertible, starts in the mid-70s for the coupe and low-80s for the convertible. Navigation and all those creature comforts are standard as well as a 360 hp engine. Is a competitor to Merc CLK and SL, Lexus SC and Cadillac XLR.

7 Series: BMW’s largest sedan and flagship model. Long-wheelbase is optional, and standard leather is Nasca leather. Wood trim varies with trim. Competes with Lexus LS, Maserati Quattroporte, Merc S-Class and Audi A8. Most expensive model is 760Li which boasts around 490 hp and is gargantun.

Z4: Performance convertible. Has only two seats and competes with Merc SLK. Very small and is successor to the Z3.

M models: Performance variations on the line. Akin to Merc’s AMG division, Audi’s S and Lexus F.

X3 and X5: “SAV”s. X3 is compact and X5 is midsize. X5 offers a thrid row seat this year. Base engine is 260 hp and upmodel 4.8i boast 350 hp engine.

Jenny asks…

I have a 1989 325i BMW and I want to make it go faster. How would I do so?

I own a BMW 325i, made in 1989, and I want to make it go faster. The problem is that I know very little about cars. I know I’m going to need a manual transmission but that’s all I know at the moment. If I could acquire a list of potential parts that would improve the performance of the car it would be much appreciated. Thank you.

You can also start with some simple upgrades by installing parts like high performance hose’s, air filters, fuel filters, and exhaust. You’ll actually gain some horse power by these simple do it yourself upgrades.
