Put Top Up or Down in Just 20 Seconds

If you’ve considered buying a convertible but didn’t want the hassle of having to pull over and put the top up if confronted with a sudden rain storm, consider the easy transitioning hard top that comes with the BMW 4-Series Convertible. This hard top goes up or down in just 20 seconds at the push of a button, even if you’re moving as fast as 11 mph. That means all you need is a well timed stoplight or a quick turn through a parking lot to make your top nice and secure. Unlike canvas convertible tops, the hard top also offers sound reduction and integrated lighting to make the drop top seem like a conventional coupe. Check out the 4-Series convertible by visiting Chapman BMW.

No Body Flexing in This Convertible

Although traditional convertibles give the open air feeling of sportiness, in fact most of them don’t handle as well as a hardtop coupe. The BMW 4-Series Convertible has a wide track, long wheelbase and lower ride height to help it grip the road and provide a dynamic driving experience. A special suspension setup brings the center of gravity down even further and BMW’s commitment to 50/50 weight distribution means your 4-Series Convertible offers the benefits of the company’s experience on the European racing circuit.

Some of the Features You Can Expect From a Beemer

Do you like riding with the top down in the spring or fall, even when it’s still a bit chilly out? BMW has neck warmers in the headrests of the front seat to bathe you with warm air as you tool about the countryside. You’ll need some tunes as you drive and you’ll want to stay connected to the outside world, so BMW ConnectedDrive provides navigation, real time traffic information, Bluetooth streaming and hands free connection to your smart phone. Choose the Luxury Package and your 4-Series becomes even more special, with a choice of soft leathers, contrasting stitching and gorgeous wood trim.

Twin Turbo Provides Plenty of Pop

The BMW TwinPower Turbo engine comes standard in the 428i convertible, providing 240 horsepower and 255 pound feet of torque that launches you from the starting line like a bottle rocket. Move up to the 435i and you get a turbocharged six cylinder that has all but eliminated turbo lag. Test drive both models for yourself by taking a trip to Chapman BMW.

‘Drive for a Cause’ Donates Funds

For every test drive you take from now through September at Chapman BMW and other company dealerships, BMW of North America will make a donation to either Team USA or a local charity. “Drive for a Cause is more than a summer sales initiative – it’s a meaningful part of what we do to support Team USA and other important local charitable endeavors,” according to BMW VP of marketing Trudy Hardy. “Any time you can get people behind the wheel of a BMW while simultaneously generating attention and raising money for worthy charities, it’s a win-win.”

BMW Sets Goal of $1.5 Million

Whether it goes to support the athletes training for the Olympics, Paralympics or a local charity, BMW North America has a goal of raising $1.5 million through “Drive for a Cause.” Check in with the pros at your Phoenix BMW dealer, Chapman BMW, to see when they are hosting a special event to pit all the BMW models up against the competition. This way you can have a clear comparison as to why the German automaker is completely in its own league. There is no commitment to buy anything. Your test drive alone is enough to ensure that BMW donates to charity. Go to the Drive for a Cause website to register for the event.

BMW Encore the Final Step to Product Education

BMW realizes that modern vehicles can be an exercise in technological frustration. Although each dealership takes pains to go over all the features upon delivery, it is a lot of information to absorb all at once. So, when you forget how to set your clock or reset your trip odometer, that’s all information that can be gone over again in your BMW Encore appointment. Once you’ve had some time to familiarize yourself with the car, all you need to do is call for an Encore appointment with your list of questions and the experts will take as much time as necessary to make sure you and your Beemer can function as one.
