Car Description

Push a button, and, like magic, the top lowers and disappears beneath its integral tonneau. Likewise, the 3.0-liter, 225-hp engine stands ready to respond instantly to transform an everyday drive into an eye-opening, heart-pounding experience. Inside, leather upholstery, 6-speed manual transmission, Rollover Protection System, and powerful Harman Kardon audio system are all standard. Its sleek beauty beckons you to get behind the wheel and feel the freedom of an open-air drive made all the better by being at one with the road, as well as the sky.

Dynamic Brake Control is another important safety feature, crucial in extreme braking situations (such as when avoiding an accident). When it is necessary to build up brake pressure as quickly as possible, Dynamic Brake Control can speed up and reinforce this process, helping to provide the shortest possible stopping distance.

All Season Traction, part of Dynamic Stability Control, provides better stability and control in slippery road conditions all year long - packed snow, ice, rain- or oil-slicked roads, and sandy or rough surfaces. The system continually processes data from the anti-lock braking wheelspeed sensors. Any time a rear 'drive' wheel begins to lose traction, the system modifies the engine's electronic throttle and ignition timing to reduce torque. It also can act on each rear brake individually or simultaneously, as needed, to bring wheelspin under control. Dynamic Traction Control aids driving in deep snow or sand.

Check Control helps the driver to be aware of the operational readiness of important functions, such as the lighting system and fluid levels. A pictogram display indicates the location of the feature that requires attention. Warnings are shown in the Check Control display at the bottom of the main instrument cluster, and are prioritized according to urgency. On-board computer functions can also be shown in the Check Control display, if desired.

Double VANOS allows the engine to 'steplessly' choose valve timing for both intake and exhaust camshafts. Electronically controlled in response to engine speed, load and temperature, Double VANOS maximizes engine response, efficiency and emission control. The benefit: more low- to medium-speed torque for strong acceleration and added flexibility for better highway performance, plus quieter, smoother engine at idle.

Dynamic Brake Control is another important safety feature, crucial in extreme braking situations (such as when avoiding an accident). When it is necessary to build up brake pressure as quickly as possible, Dynamic Brake Control can speed up and reinforce this process, helping to provide the shortest possible stopping distance.

Dynamic Stability Control is an innovative technology that combines the functions of traction control, braking enhancement, and cornering stabilization. DSC sensors continually monitor cornering-steering angle, transverse acceleration, yaw, wheel speed and brake pressure to instantly detect and correct loss of wheel traction due to slick spots, nasty weather, or emergency maneuvers. DSC helps you stay in control under all conditions, in any situation.

This package offers a muscular 235-hp power plant, aggressive 18-inch alloy wheels, quicker acceleration, short-throw 6-speed manual, more responsive handling, deeper engine growl, and more.

Recognizing that each vehicle is used differently - and so the need for routine maintenance is different for each vehicle - BMW developed the Service Interval Indicator. This device continually analyzes the way the BMW is driven, and uses this analysis to determine when it needs servicing - not just based on miles driven. The basic Oil Service includes a change of engine oil and filter, and select other maintenance items. Long-life sparkplugs are designed for a service life of 100,000 miles.

Handy Vehicle & Key Memory features can activate special convenience and safety features already programmed in the 3 Series. Vehicle Memory offers the choice of activating/deactivating Daytime Running Lights, an anti-theft motion detector, and 'Pathway Lighting' - headlights that stay on for 40 seconds after turning off the ignition.

With Key Memory, up to three keys can be separately programmed to individual preferences. Choose to unlock just the drivers door or both doors with the first press of the keyhead remote. Key Memory can also be programmed to relock the vehicle automatically when it reaches 5 mph. Key Memory can return the drivers seat to the same position as the last time that key was used; similarly, it can return climate control to the previous setting used.
