Earn Points When You Service Your Vehicle
When people buy a BMW, they know they are buying the very best vehicle money can buy. The rich history of BMW in providing the Ultimate Driving Machine for millions of Americans has set a standard for everything the company touches, from the dealerships to the cards you can use to pay for service and accessories. Both the BMW Card and the BMW Signature Card let you accumulate points to help you save money on everything from oil changes to new vehicle purchases. Earn points when you buy accessories or pay for services at Chapman BMW, or you can earn points every day when you make purchases at retail stores or buy gas.

Use the points for plane tickets, luxury spa days and hotel stays, all for buying the things you’d normally buy anyway.
Give Your Car a Spa Treatment
There’s no reason to take your BMW to the $3 car wash when you’re earning all those points on BMW services. Schedule an express wash at Chapman BMW and attendants will soap your car up by hand, give it a gentle rinse and then chamois dry. The dash, vents and trim will all be cleaned and dressed. They won’t forget about the door jambs either. Get the premium wash and you’ll get a hand wax, which is vital for protecting your car against the Arizona sun. Spring for the Ultimate Wash to bring your Beemer back to showroom condition, then use the points for a quick getaway for a personal spa day.
Plug-in Hybrid Top of BMW Lineup
Using technology pioneered in the i3 and i8, BMW has added a top-of-the-line luxury plug-in hybrid to its fleet of superior driving machines. The 2017 BMW 740e xDrive iPerformance executive sedan is on its way to Chapman BMW, offering a high-performance solution for people who demand the best. The integration of a TwinTurbo gasoline engine, electric motor and 8-speed transmission deliver a very healthy 322 horsepower. Combined with BMW’s intelligent all-wheel xDrive system, the result is an efficient and powerful sophisticated sedan. The addition to the BMW 7-Series lineup can go as fast as 75 mph using just the electric motor. It is rated to get the equivalent of 64 mpg in combined city and highway driving by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Choose Best Driving Mode for Efficiency
Get behind the wheel of the 740e xDrive and you’ll find a selection of driving modes geared to produce the highest efficiency from your new 740e xDrive. The car starts out in AUTO eDRIVE, which is the default setting to conserve the most energy while still providing a dynamic driving experience. If you want to solely rely on the electrical motor, just switch to MAX eDRIVE. In this mode, you can still activate the gas engine if you push firmly down on the accelerator pedal. The last setting is BATTERY CONTROL, which allows the driver to input a charge range that can be used later on.
Driving Dynamics Range From Comfort to Sport
Another switch on the console adjusts the driving dynamics of the 740e xDrive, letting the operator choose from COMFORT, SPORT or ECO PRO. This puts you in control of the accelerator response, suspension control, steering and transmission. For a luxurious ride that smooths out all of the highway bumps, select the COMFORT mode. Increase the damper and accelerator response with the SPORT mode, which turns those Sunday country road drives into lasting memories. The ECO PRO mode gives you the most range for using the all-electric function of your new BMW. Along with other energy saving features, this mode activates a coasting function that saves power.
Charging Your EV has Never Been Easier
Bringing the 740e xDrive iPerformance sedan back up to full battery power is as simple as plugging in a wall lamp. You can choose between a standard 120V home power station, or opt for the more powerful BMW Charging Station. A ChargeNow access card comes with every vehicle and gives you access to public charging stations all across the country. The new BMW 7-Series xDrive plug-in hybrid also includes the luxurious interior and technology you come to expect from the automaker. See it soon and take a test drive at Chapman BMW.
Emission Free With Plenty of Power
Choose one of the electric, hybrid or plug-in hybrid BMW models from Chapman BMW and you’ll receive the most advanced electric propulsion system available. Known simply as eDrive, the modern power system delivers both impressive performance and fuel savings, but also has zero emissions when driven in the pure electrical state. By developing a totally new motor and transmission system, the engineers at BMW have created an engine with a lot of torque that remains the same whether you are just leaving your garage or have reached highway speeds. This provides surprising agility and a pleasant driving experience when maneuvering through a crowded city or taking your BMW out on the open highway. Inspect the new BMW inventory of electric vehicle options at Chapman BMW.
Powerful Batteries Benefit From Cooling
The lithium-ion high performance battery that comes in all BMWs equipped with eDrive benefits from a high-tech cooling system that lets the battery remain at a prime temperature to both receive and hold a charge. This not only increases the performance of the battery, but also increases its life expectancy. Because the BMW eDrive uses both intelligent energy management and brake regeneration to produce an electrical charge, the range of electric and hybrid BMWs has increased significantly. Utilize one of more than 28,000 charging stations in the U.S., or just plug your vehicle into a 220V socket at home to bring the charge back to the top.
There is an “I” in BMW
Although there may be no “I” in team, there definitely is one in BMW, and that “I” is paving the way for future electric technology. Both the i3 and i8 have not only exceeded expectations in sales, but are also providing a testing ground for the company to increase both range and power. BMW i is the brainchild of the BMW EfficientDynamics group. First released in 2013, the i3 and i8 are built for a changing world where traffic congestion is a normal part of life. The day where these cars not only provide an emission-free travel experience, but also communicate with each other is not far away. You can get onboard the “I” train now by taking a trip to Chapman BMW.
iPerformance Leading the Parade to Lower Emissions
Whether you choose the 330e, 740e or X5 xDrive40e, the new electric and hybrid models from BMW are helping to clean the air and save the planet. For the hybrid and plug-in hybrid models, a small gas engine works in concert with the electric eDrive motor to provide instant acceleration, ensuring you get the same pleasure driving these vehicles as you would any other BMW.
Don’t Need to be Rich to Enjoy Luxury
Although it’s true that luxury car companies like BMW offer vehicles that cost north of $100K, you don’t need to be a hedge fund manager to enjoy all the sophistication that comes with owning an ultimate driving machine. The BMW 2-Series starts at just a bit above $30,000 and offers many of the features of its much more expensive siblings. Offered in a coupe and convertible, the 2-Series has the same quality craftsmanship and attention to detail that makes BMW one of the most honored brand names in the world. Swing by Chapman BMW and take a spin to see just how much luxury you can afford.
Powerful Engine Works With Intelligent Chassis
Once you get past the beauty of the exterior design and the rich atmosphere of the cabin, you’ll enjoy driving a BMW 2-Series as much as any other car in their lineup. The standard 4-cylinder engine comes equipped with a twin turbocharger to generate 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Step up to the M240i Coupe (remember, “M” stands for motorsports) and you get the 3.0L inline 6 cylinder that also comes with twin turbochargers. This motor really gets after it by producing 335 horsepower. A driving mode selector lets you choose between a more comfortable ride and a tuned suspension that will straighten out curves like a hot iron. Adaptive M suspension comes with the M240i and is available on the base model. The rear dampers and front struts constantly adapt to your driving style and road conditions. A special track handling package lets you adjust the suspension on the fly to your mood.
Get the Wind in Your Hair with 2-Series Convertible
Whether you choose the more sedate 230i or the wicked M240i, the BMW 2-Series convertible will put a smile on your face. Designed to push the limits of sensible fun, imagine yourself tooling up the coast highway with your sunglasses on, tunes cranked up and hair blowing in the breeze. Just as the coupe delivers a sensational driving experience, the convertible has BMW’s near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution to help keep you in charge when the curves get tight. When Mother Nature dictates the top needs to be up, the sound-reducing material keeps the outside noises out and lets you enjoy the quiet sophistication of your sound system. Changing from an open-air roadster to a closed top just takes 22 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph. Whether you’re a convertible person or prefer a nice hard top, check out the entire BMW 2-Series inventory at Chapman BMW.
Racing Inspired Coupe Just Got a Little Sassier
By opting to add the Competition Package to the new BMW M4 Coupe, drivers get a little more horsepower but a much-enhanced suspension setup that enables the sporty luxury ride to decrease track times. “Car and Driver” magazine editors note that the increase of 19 horsepower to a total of 444 isn’t really that noticeable. It’s the improvement to the chassis setup that makes the package worth the extra $5K. Even though the M4 is the result of the BMW racing team getting their hands on a regular 4-Series Coupe, the Competition Package takes the already firm suspension and upgrades it with stiffer rear axle springs, anti-roll bars that are twist resistant, and upgraded dampers. Even the software for the driver select modes is changed, in effect upgrading each selection to a sportier alternative. What the normal M4 selects as Comfort mode is now the Sport selection in the car with the Competition Package. To find the BMW that’s right for you, check out the entire inventory at Chapman BMW.
Beefed Up Suspension at Home on Track or Road
Whether you’re crossing the mountains on the way to San Diego or rent some time at a local track, you’ll find the Competition Package suspension enhances your driving experience. The upgraded dampers help smooth out the bumps on normal workday roads when you put the car on Comfort setting. Twist it to Sport Plus and it may be a bit rough for your daily commute, but you’ll really notice the distance in the lack of understeer and drift on the track. “The steering feels crisper and delivers more feedback at road speeds while remaining equally faithful at higher loadings,” according to “Car and Driver.” “Apply some cost-benefit analysis, and the Competition Package scores a resounding ‘yes,’ adding more than enough edge to justify the increase in price for most of those who would pick a BMW M4.”
M Designation Available in Seven Different Models
BMW likes to say “M is the most powerful letter in the world,” with the understanding that the M designation means a BMW coupe, sedan, convertible or SUV has been upgraded with technology and performance that was learned on the toughest race courses in the world. All the 2-Series through 6-Series models have an M-enhanced model available, as does the X-5 and X-6 SUVs. If you’d like to put a little more excitement in your life, take the time to swing by Chapman BMW and take an M model out on the road.
