New features for BMW X5 and BMW 6 Series

Extended range of series equipment for the new BMW X5 and the top-of-the-range version of the BMW 6 Series.

As a continuation of many new things BMW brings us this spring we will talk today about new BMW X5 (F15) and BMW 6 Series.

From the spring of 2014 BMW F15 will have as a standard equipment Driving Assistant system.

Driving Assistant comprises camera-based Lane Departure Warning and Collision Warning (including pedestrian warning) with brake application function. Lane Departure Warning makes the steering wheel vibrate in order to warn the driver when he or she veers out of lane unintentionally. Collision Warning detects vehicles driving ahead and pedestrians. The system issues a visual and acoustic warning if there is an imminent risk of collision. It also initiates a braking process, if required.

BMW 650i with M Sport Exhaust System

Some were complaining about the sound of V8, well it was good enough at least for me but some people were saying that as long as it is 650i it must have special sound.
So now starting with spring of 2014  the BMW 650i Coupe, the BMW 650i Convertible and the BMW 650i Gran Coupe will all be equipped with an M Sport exhaust system installed at the factory.

The motor-racing inspired system developed by BMW M GmbH reduces the exhaust back pressure and emphasises the characteristic acoustics of the V8 power unit during acceleration and deceleration.

As an option starting with spring of 2014 Harman Kardon surround system will be available on all BMW 6 Series models. High level of music quality will always be with you while driving.

Those who already pre-ordered any of these cars feel free to share your experience. Thank you beforehand.

BMW X5 (F15) Third Row of Seats

If you have a family with more than 4 members with plans of having more children and thinking if new BMW X5 (F15) will suit you I will say yes and here is a picture and even a video on how third row seats looks and works.

I think BMW made a great job of keeping X5 a a very balanced car, typical BMW proportions, 50/50 weight distribution and great performance and still offer third row of seats which I am sure rarely will be used in most cases.

Some people on forums say that third row of seats is good only if the children who will sit there won’t be over 6-8 years. Well, I dont want to see X5 as a big car which is hardly driven and does not bring sheer driving pleasure.

If you want something bigger you can buy a huge wagon or better buy one more BMW for family 🙂

BMW must bring driving pleasure and not be a simple and boring way to get from point A to point B. Agree?
