BMW’s reputation for precision is unmatched, but there are other interesting facts about BMW repair and BMW history that keep us loyal to this longstanding auto maker:
BMW stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke. In English, that would be: Bavarian Motor Works.
The BMW Roundel logo symbolizes 2 things: The Roundel logo stems from the days of its aircraft heritage, and symbolizes a spinning propeller. The blue and white fields on the Roundel logo represent the colors from the Bavarian flag, the state of Germany where BMW is headquartered.
The BMW 303, a middle sized saloon produced by BMW in 1933 and 1934, was the first BMW to use the ‘kidney grill’ which today is a hallmark of the company’s models.
The first BMW ‘series’ was the 5-series, released in 1972.
If you’re a BMW fan, you know that all BMW cars have codes – E21, E30, E36, E39, E32, E12… The “E” stands for Entwicklung, which means Development, in English. Speculation warrants that BMW switched to F code with the new 7-series because they ran out of E-numbers.
The BMW 700 was a direct competitor to the VW Beetle with a rear mounted engine, rear wheel drive, a boxer engine, and an air cooled engine.
The first car made by BMW was the BMW Dixi. BMW bought the Automobilwerk Eisenach in 1928 and, with it, the rights to build the Dixi car. Soon after that, they dropped the Dixi name.
On April Fool’s Day in the UK, BMW’s marketing team publishes different adverts in the newspaper that are are humorous, and quite intelligent. If you want to take a look at some of them, visit the link.
Bob Marley was a BMW driver and here’s why: “I have a BMW. But only because BMW stands for Bob Marley and The Wailers, and not because I need an expensive car.”
