    I heard the other day about an early #BMW-X1 that had been recovered into a main dealership with a non-start condition following a breakdown. The labour for diagnostics came to under 100 quid, but the associated repair bill resulted in a final cost that was significant enough to effectively write-off the car.

    / #High-Pressure-Fuel-Pumps / #BMW

    How does £6,000 grab you for a new, high-pressure fuel pump, four injectors, fuel system clean-out and labour? A fuel pump costs £1,250, four injectors add up to over £2,200, then add £150 for the non-re-useable fuel lines and, if needed, a fuel rail for an additional £420. Then there was a couple of days in the workshop to get it all done at whatever they charge (plus VAT), and you can see how it adds up and runs away.

    What happened in this case – and others – is that the finely-machined surfaces in the fuel pump somehow become damaged. Bits whizzed around inside the pump causing more aggro, and then the fi ne mix of metal swarf and diesel found its way into the injectors, ruining them.

    The car went to a BMW independent specialist who quoted £1,200 to supply and fit good used parts, and clean the system out. That’s after the workshop there had completed the same repair on three other #BMW-N47 cars before…

    But I do wonder what causes this problem? It’s not really that common a fault. It could be poor quality diesel from a supermarket station, water in the fuel or even the fact that, after the filter in the fuel pump, there isn’t one in the fuel line. I’d be very tempted to cut a section of the fuel supply pipe out and splice-in an external fuel filter, just as a second line of defence.

    A new, high-pressure fuel pump from BMW will cost a hefty £1,250, but this can be just the start of the expense if using a dealership for repairs.

    The #BMW-X1 is proving a very popular seller / #BMW / #2017

    BMW is booming

    BMW brand sales in the first five months of this year increased by 6.0%, compared with the same period last year, to 845,147 units.

    Much of this growth is thanks to good sales of the X range, with the X1 being the most popular. By the end of May, 113,367 BMW X1s were delivered, which equates to an impressive growth of 47.0% compared to the same period last year.

    Sales of the BMW X3 increased by 8.9% (67,490), while those of the BMW X5 were up 11.1% (73,418). The flagship BMW 7 Series continues to be very popular among customers worldwide, too, with 26,292 vehicles being delivered in the first five months; 37.3% more than in 2016.

    Customer demand for automobiles with alternative drive trains continues to evolve in an extremely dynamic way, as well. Sales of BMW i and iPerformance models increased by a whopping 73.4% in May (7,336 vehicles) and, to date this year, 33,221 have been delivered – a total that’s 80.6% up on last year.

    / #BMW-X1 and #BMW-2-Series earn ‘Top Safety Pick’ / 2017 / #BMW-X1-F48 / #BMW-X1-F49 / #BMW-F49 / #BMW-F48 / #BMW


    The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in the USA has named the #2017 X1 and 2017 2 Series a ‘Top Safety Pick’, continuing BMW’s long-standing commitment to offering class-leading safety with each new model. In order to earn the ‘ #Top-Safety-Pick ’ title a car must receive good ratings in five different crash tests covering small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints, among other considerations.

    / X1 #PHEV for China / #BMW-X1-xDrive25Le / #BMW-X1 / #BMW / #BMW-X1-xDrive25Le-F49 / #BMW-F49 / #BMW-X1-xDrive25Le-iPerformance / #BMW-X1-xDrive25Le-iPerformance-F49 /

    At the #2016-Chengdu-Motor-Show BMW and its partner in China, #BMW-Brilliance , announced the debut of the #BMW-X1-xDrive25Le , a longwheelbase plug-in hybrid X1 that will be produced exclusively for the Chinese market. The rest of the world gets its X1 with a 2670mm wheelbase but the Chinese market gets a longer one at 2780mm. No doubt this additional space makes the X1 more suitable for a PHEV with the batteries not taking up too much of the available luggage space.

    The X1 xDrive25Le iPerformance runs on both electricity and fossil fuel, with the petrol engine and electric motor powering the front and rear wheels respectively, with the intelligent energy management system taking care of on-demand power response and energy efficiency maximisation. The conventional 1.5-litre petrol engine that powers the front wheels is mated to a six-speed integrated manual/automatic gearbox and churns out a maximum power output of 136hp with peak torque clocking in at 162lb ft.

    The electric motor that drives the rear wheels produces power up to 95hp and can instantaneously deliver a peak torque of 122lb ft. Thanks to BMW’s proprietary eBoost function, both power systems can provide a peak torque of 284lb ft allowing acceleration from 0-62mph in just 7.4 seconds with a combined fuel consumption as low as 157mpg.

    With an all-electric cruising range of around 37 miles the X1 xDrive25Le has a combined range of nearly 400 miles – impressive when you consider it’s only equipped with a 35-litre fuel tank. Currently BMW has no plans to offer the model in other markets, but it could well be that the technology is transferable to the standard wheelbase X1 in the coming years as it’s a segment where BMW currently doesn’t have a PHEV.

    Long-wheelbase X1 for China


    The Chinese market is famous for its long-wheelbase models – it already has LWB versions of the 3 and 5 Series – and the X1 is the latest model to be stretched exclusively for this market. Unveiled at the Beijing motor show last month, it’ll be built at BMW’s Chinese partner, Brilliance, at the factory in Tiexi. At 4560mm long it’s 121mm longer than the European version of the X1 with all the extra length being in the wheelbase. With the sliding rear bench it offers the possibility of a flexible interior – luggage space is between 465- and 675-litres depending on how the rear seats are organised. Three models will be offered for the Chinese market; an sDrive18Li powered by the three-cylinder 136hp engine, an sDrive20Li (also available as a four-wheel drive xDrive) that uses a 192hp version of the four-cylinder turbo engine and the range-topping xDrive25Li that utilises the 132hp four-cylinder. The X1 is popular in China – 200,000 E84 generation machines were sold there, with 140,000 of those being locally produced machines.

    Mixed #Euro-NCAP bag / #2016 / #BMW /

    In the latest round of safety tests two BMWs were tested – the all-new X1, and slightly oddly the Z4 which must be coming towards the end of its natural life cycle. Naturally enough it was the #BMW-X1 which scored the better of the two machines, ending up with a five-star rating – the highest possible overall in Euro NCAP’s rating system. Overall it scored 90 per cent for adult occupant protection, 87 per cent for child occupant protection, 74 per cent for pedestrian safety and 77 per cent for its safety systems such as stability control and autonomous braking.

    The older #BMW-Z4 was only rated as a three-star vehicle scoring 69 per cent for adult protection, 61 per cent for children, an excellent 91 per cent for pedestrians but a lowly 49 per cent for safety assist functions, mainly as it lacks autonomous emergency braking, lane and speed assistance.
