It’s official, BMW’s 4 Series is replacing the current 3 Series Coupe and Convertible. The number “4″ is a first for BMW, but even those skeptical of the new Series have to admit that the new 4 Series Coupe Concept is the finest rendition of the 3 Series Coupe they’ve ever seen. Just revealed at the Detroit Auto Show, check out the images below.
What BMW has to say about the ’4′:“The ’4′ doesn’t just mark the start of a new cycle, it represents the zenith of a development curve. BMW has given the new model its own individual character and a standalone design – and, in so doing, has turned ’4′ into segment shorthand for aesthetic and dynamic appeal. The latest addition to a nomenclature that sees BMW building on the fine tradition of its large BMW 6 Series and BMW 8 Series Coupes, the ’4′ stands for greater sportiness, greater exclusivity and even clearer differentiation from the BMW 3 Series range.”

The LA Auto Show opens to the public this Friday, showcasing BMW’s new i3 – an electric vehicle that upholds the brand’s reputation for “fun-to-drive”.
Take a look at its sleek interior, composed of wood, leather, wool and other renewable materials.
Electric vehicles have been criticized because of their short driving span, but BMW promises the i3 will not just an in-town, get-me-to-the-next-charging-station cruiser ASAP. The i3 can drive up to 100 miles on one battery charge and its interior technology will alert the driver as to remaining battery power using a number of factors including driving style, route topography and the use of interior electrical devices. The Navigation can guide the driver to the closest charging station and can recommend more efficient driving routes as opposed to the fastest.Share on Facebook
Recently, Kuni BMW has aired a number of television spots and web videos honoring Oregon’s Champions. With the Olympics comes the idea of recognizing those among us who demonstrate the skills, abilities, and commitment necessary to achieve greatness. We wanted to recognize those in our community who express this dedication and commitment, but do so in a way that improves the lives of those in their own communities.
At Kuni BMW we understand and value what it means to be involved in the community. We strive to be the best at what we do, and we want to recognize those whose goal is not athletic achievements or business success, but rather to simply make the lives of those in their communities better.

BMW has a long history of innovation, and their vehicles are consistently held above the competition as being not only incredibly well-performing, but also exceptionally cutting-edge. In keeping with this theme of being at the forefront of vehicle development, BMW has decided to lend their distinctive design to the latest trend in the automotive world: hybrid cars.
Part of the new plug-in hybrid BMW i line, the BMW i8 represents the best of BMW’s technological advancements and stylish vehicle design. Recent testing of the concept has been markedly successful, and the new i8 and i3 seem poised to usher in an era where sports performance and fuel efficiency are not mutually exclusive.

The latest incarnation of the BMW 3 series, the 328i Touring Luxury Line offers something a little different, blending BMW’s signature style with the fuel efficiency and cargo space of an economy car. Let’s take a look at why this car rises above the competition:
A Smart Interior
As we’ve come to expect from BMW, the 328i Touring Luxury Line is equipped with a stylish and sporty interior that provides a comfortable drive experience. Included in this luxurious interior is the newest model of the iDrive navigation system, which, with its new polished look and improved information systems, makes for a much easier and simpler navigation process. All this simplification and ease with technology results in a much more streamlined driving experience, leaving the driver more time to simply enjoy the aesthetics of the beautiful 328i Touring.
While BMW is world renowned for making beautiful, high quality luxury vehicles, the performance of the cars is equally as important, if not more so. At a normal speed range, the new and efficient 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine responds spontaneously and the driver can avoid any annoying “turbo-lag”.
Friendly to the Environment and the Wallet
BMW’s new engine, newly equipped in the 328i Touring Line, is estimated to reduce fuel consumption by 20% in comparison to the older, in-line six-cylinder version. This promises to be a great savings at the pump, and represents BMW’s latest attempts at offering the most efficient and streamlined driving experience possible. In keeping with the environmentally conscious theme, the new 328i Touring comes equipped with an option to drive in Eco Pro mode. While Eco Pro mode will not be nearly as sporty as other options, it will offer even greater fuel efficiency, perfect for a long trip. All in all, the new 328i Touring Luxury Line represents the pinnacle of BMW’s mission to deliver the most exceptional driving experience to its customers.
