This new steering wheel is available as a dealer-installed option on BMW M and some traditional models. Wrapped in Alcantara suede, the new BMW steering wheel offers better grip. A screen is set at the top of the wheel that can be adjusted to three modes – first one to measure efficiency, second one (sport mode) that helps the driver to track lap times. It is paired with a G-meter which can measure forces in turns and the third mode (Race mode) that can extensively measure acceleration and timing, for example it can measure how much time it takes to reach 60 mph and so on. And that’s not all! As icing on the cake, a row of LEDs is present on either side of the screen that flashes red or green to suggest optimal shifting points.

The typical designates of a 1.5 liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine are high-revving characteristics, spontaneous responsiveness and a dynamic, sporty sound. It uses the latest generation of the High Precision Injection direct fuel injection system and the VALVETRONIC variable valve control system.
The 1.5 liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine consumes less fuel thanks to the low internal friction. The charge cycle is well adapted to the drivetrain to suit the needs of the driver providing a high “low end torque” as well as a rapid response with long ignition intervals.
The basic engine consists of optimized cylinder modules with capacities of 500 cc each and has a capacity of 1.5 liters. The power developed in each cylinder is between 30 and 55 kW (at 60 – 80 Nm) in the case of the petrol engine, while the diesel develops between 20 and 45 kW (at 75 – 110 Nm). There are a number of similarities between the petrol and diesel engines like distance between cylinders, the aluminum crankcase, the balance shaft design, the arrangement of the timing chain, the layout of the cylinder head bolts and the high-quality coating on the cylinder bore surfaces. In short, these engines will certainly make a difference in driving and are likely to take future BMW cars to a whole new level.

Chicago BMW car dealer in Elmhurst, Illinois, is pleased to present BMW’s latest 2013 BMW M5 mid-size luxury sport sedan to customers. It is tastefully stylish and equipped with a host of ultra modern features.
When it comes to performance, the all-new M5 beats the competition. In fact, it boasts the most powerful engine ever fitted in an M5. A 4.4-liter, DOHC, twin-turbo V-8 engine rated at an impressive 560 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque gives power to the M5. When paired with the high-torque 7-speed M-Double Clutch Transmission, you'll go soaring from 0-60 mph in an astounding 4.3 seconds. The double clutch shifts automatically or manually with the gear lever or steering-wheel-mounted paddles and sends drive to the rear wheels. When you press the pedal, you trigger a rocket-like rush. This four-door Teutonic two-toner which holds a pair of baby seats into the back seat and a couple of golf bags in the trunk, accelerates to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds.
The M5 sports Star Spoke forged alloy wheels and xenon adaptive headlights on the outside. Inside, 18-way power front M Multi-contour seats with 4-way lumbar support are highly comfortable and there is plenty of foot and headroom. The extended Merino Leather upholstery and door trim includes leather seat surfaces, armrests in center console and doors, headrests for front and rear seats, and gear shift lever boot.
The automatic climate control comes with separate left/right temperature and air distribution controls, with automatic air recirculation. The 12-speaker audio system is a treat for audiophiles. The deep trunk’s capacity is 520 liters, big enough to carry all your gear. The M5 is loaded with all modern safety features like BMW's Advanced Safety System, Active Head Restraints in front seats and BMW Assist Safety Plan.
