BMW Intelligent Headlight Technology: Long Version.
First introduced on the new BMW 7 Series (July 2012) as part of the
optional Adaptive LED Headlights, this functionality is now also supported
with Xenon headlights on all new BMW 3 Series Saloon and Touring models
specified with a Visibility package.
BMW Adaptive Headlights are combined with BMW High-beam Assistant
technology to provide an intelligent headlight system that optimises the
illumination of the road ahead without glaring on-coming traffic and other
road users. This ensures improved visibility and safety during night time
and poor weather driving conditions.
BMW - Top View Camera
Working with data from the Rear View Camera, also included in the camera
package, the TOP View options generates a birds-eye image of your vehicle
for a safe and clear focal point while parking.

Altijd het overzicht behouden: voor nieuwe perspectieven is uw BMW
uitgerust met maximaal vijf camera's. http://bit.ly/BMWSurroundView
Twee Side View camera's in de voorbumper kijken naar links en naar rechts.
Beide beelden worden gelijktijdig op het vrijstaande Control Display
getoond. Zo merkt u ook elk obstakel op wanneer u een garage uitrijdt. De
achteruitrijcamera helpt bij het inparkeren. Via het Control Display ziet u
of er achter de auto voldoende ruimte is. Met de zoomfunctie is het beeld
zodanig in te stellen dat het zelfs mogelijk is een aanhanger aan te
koppelen zonder externe aanwijzingen.
De Top View camera's in beide buitenspiegels maken het overzicht compleet.
Top View combineert de gegevens van deze camera's met die van de
achteruitrijcamera en vormt zo een beeld dat uw BMW en zijn omgeving vanuit
Top View en Side View zijn onderdeel van de extra-uitrusting Surround View.

Audi A4 3.0TDI quattro vs BMW 335d xDrive (F30)
Beschleunigungsduell zwischen einem Audi A4 Avant quattro S-Line und einem
BMW 3er Sports Line. Der BMW hat 70PS mehr wegen des zusätzlichen turbos, aber hat kein Sportfahrwerk. Außerdem
die schlechteren Reifen, die Automatik schaltet etwas langsamer und xDrive
ist nicht ganz so ausgereicht wie quattro. Hat der Audi trotzdem eine
2014 BMW i8 Review
What's New for 2014
The 2014 BMW i8 is an all-new model.
Based on the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car shown a few years
ago, the 2014 BMW i8 represents the German automaker's vision of a
high-performance plug-in hybrid. If this is what the future looks like,
sign us up. Zero to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds? A full charge in three hours
from a regular garage outlet? Approximately 95 mpg? Yes, please.
For the i8, BMW chops its classic 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine
formula in half. The i8 uses a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder
paired with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. The
three-cylinder drives the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic
transmission, while the electric motor powers the front wheels through a
The engine and electric motor combine for 362 horsepower, 420 pound-feet
of torque and all-wheel-drive performance, all integrated into a chassis
that is 10 pounds lighter and 1.5 inches longer than the 3 Series. The i8
also delivers stellar handling thanks to 50/50 weight distribution and a
low, centrally mounted battery pack, although standard 20-inch wheels seem
like a suspect choice for maximizing corner-to-corner performance.
BMW says the i8 can also travel 22 miles and reach a top speed of 75 mph on
electrons alone. Uncorked with the gasoline engine in the lead, it will
reach a top speed of 155 mph. Sounds like a pretty good future to us.
Lightweight construction helps bring lofty performance within reach,
notably an aluminum chassis, chemically hardened glass (similar to that
used in smartphones) and extensive use of carbon-fiber-reinforced panels
within the 2+2 passenger cabin. Those plus-2 rear seats are small, however,
smaller than even a Porsche 911's, and are best considered auxiliary
luggage space. Even settling into the front seats requires some practice
given its unique scissor-lift-style doors.
We drove a recent i8 prototype and found the i8's easy thrust in
all-electric mode a close match for the Tesla Model S. In its Sport mode
(there are also Comfort and Eco Pro settings), the i8 further awakens,
feeling light, agile and averse to body roll. The hybrid never quite
overwhelms with acceleration, but it also never feels winded, the electric
motor's torque nicely covering for the small turbo as the latter winds up to deliver its power
Whatever the i8 lacks in competitive performance, it won't lack for style.
Its low-slung profile is punctuated by standard U-shaped LED headlights.
You can even order the i8 with laser headlights where regulations allow
(sorry, U.S. shoppers). Inside, a multitiered and layered cockpit design
uses recycled materials and naturally treated leather for upholstery and
panel surfaces Like the smaller i3 electric car, the i8 will offer three
trim levels -- Mega, Giga and Tera -- all with varying degrees of sport and
The 2014 BMW i8 arrives in the spring and starts around $136,000. That's
well above its most obvious target, the Tesla Model S, and that kind of
money also buys a lot of Porsche 911. Performance aficionados won't likely
be swayed and may even look across the BMW lineup to the "M" cars. But for
the hybrid buyer seeking power, performance and efficiency through a lower
profile, the 2014 BMW i8 presents a unique choice.

► BMW Vision ConnectedDrive
Via the Passenger Information Display, the passenger in a BMW Vision
ConnectedDrive vehicle can also take advantage of additional
functionalities provided by intelligent networking. As a co-pilot he can
evaluate information or address details for the navigation system received
online and forward them to the driver's instrument panel if necessary. Thus
the interaction between the driver and the passenger and networking with
the environment reach new levels. The Emotional Browser makes an even more
varied and individually-tailored choice of information possible. During the
journey, this system captures and filters additional information about the
environment through which the vehicle is currently travelling, in terms of
people, mood or location. This personal configuration can be set at the
start of the journey, but can also be adjusted on the road to be more or
less detailed, to suit individual requirements.
