BMW 750 Li

On the BMW North America website, the manufacturers of “The Ultimate Driving Machine” describe a number of unique services offered to owners of Chapman BMW vehicles.

Among those services is the BMW Ultimate Service program, a maintenance program which offsets the cost of routine repairs for several years after the purchase of a new BMW.  Owning a high-performance luxury car like the BMW M3 Coupe or the 760Li sedan can introduce unforeseen costs into your vehicle budget.

The Ultimate Service program is touted as the best such program among high-end manufacturers, providing full coverage of factory-recommended maintenance for the first four years or 50,000 miles of ownership.  The Ultimate Service program is offered at the Chapman BMW Service center, and covers wear-and-tear replacement services, such as windshield wiper blades and brake pads at no cost to owners.  Engine oil, fluids, and regular inspections are also included, also at no cost to members of the program.

In addition, some BMW vehicles are eligible for added protection, including extensions to six years, 100,000 miles of coverage and six years, unlimited mileage BMW Roadside Assistance.  BMW guarantees that factory-certified technicians will only use genuine BMW parts for all repairs, ensuring that every Ultimate Service-treated BMW continues to operate to the exacting standards of one of the world’s premier auto manufacturers.

Perhaps the best feature of the BMW Ultimate Service program is that it requires no special effort on the part of the owner: simply purchase a program-eligible vehicle and when it comes time for routine services or inspection, schedule an appointment at your local BMW Phoenix service centers and enjoy the comfort of the facility while specially trained technicians do all the hard work.  While you are there, consider checking out some of BMW’s newer models; after all, the Ultimate Driving Machine is always improving.


BMW has recently revealed its 2014 version of the M6 Gran Coupe. Complete with loads of power, innovative design, and outstanding functionality, this four door sedan is sure to be a top pick for car buyers in 2014.

The M6 Gran Coupe is installed with the same twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 engine as BMW’s other big M cars. 560 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque routs power to the rear wheels through BMW’s 7-speed twin-clutch transmission. According to BMW, the Gran Coupe will make it from 0-to-62-mph in roughly 4.1 seconds; the same as the standard M6 coupe. However, while low 0-60 times are great, standard 15.7-inch front brake rotors and 15.6-inch rear rotors bring the M6 down from high speeds smoothly while its tightly improved chassis maximizes handling precision. Electronically controlled Active M Differential, adaptive suspension, and unique aluminum suspension components are also fitted to the M6 Gran Coupe.

This 4-Door Sedan seats 5 passengers comfortably, which immediately increases practicality.  Inside the cabin, the M6 Gran Coupe’s interior consists of merino leather upholstery, lavish carbon-fiber trim, power sports seats with bolsters, and the M-specific steering wheel with shift paddles. The M6 Gran coupe also features BMW with the iDrive system that includes a 10.2-inch display with Park Distance Control, rear-view camera, Speed Limit Info, Lane Change and Departure Warning, Surround View and BMW Night Vision. To see these and other innovative BMW technologies, visit Phoenix BMW.

The Gran Coupe’s exterior receives standard M add-ons such as larger front air inlets, quad-tip dual exhaust and an unpainted carbon fiber roof panel with exposed carbon fiber structure. The roof’s inside is covered with Alacantara (simulated suede).  Other enhancements include door sills with M6 lettering, M lightweight sport seats with M logos, an M6-specific instrument cluster and carbon fiber trim.

If safety is your concern, the 2014 BMW Gran Coupe will not disappoint.  It is equipped with a Dynamic Stability Control and anti-lock braking system offering three driving settings: On, M Dynamic Mode (MDM), and DSC Off. The system also includes Cornering Brake Control, Dynamic Brake Control, Brake Assistant, Brake Fade Compensation, Brake Drying, and Start-Off Assistant technologies.

According to BMW, the 2014 BMW Gran Coupe is expected to start selling in the early summer of 2013. In the meantime, check out Chapman BMW for the latest updates.
