There is free-spirited adventure – this is the exhilaration of the unknown. Then there is calculated performance – a combination of extensive research, time-tested principles and applied technology. Somewhere in between, you’ll find the BMW 125i Coupe: the distillation of emotion and engineering in one exceptional vehicle.
Driving requires total concentration – and a steady, secure seating position that allows you to interact intuitively with your vehicle’s controls at all times, from the steering wheel to the Navigation system to the brake pedal. No surprise, then, that the comfort and support of the125i Coupe’s seats are an important part of the driving experience. In fact, BMW seats are regarded by experts as a gold standard in terms of comfort, safety features and sportiness. When designing seats, equal importance is given to passive safety features, including side airbags that are stowed in the seatbacks and by their headrests. Yet BMW seats are designed to accommodate occupants of all sizes, with extensive levels of adjustment.
Double-VANOS is BMW’s valve timing system that can “steplessly” vary the points in the combustion cycle when valves open and close. Double-VANOS refers to the fact that it operates on both the intake and exhaust camshafts. Electronically controlled in response to engine speed, load and temperature, VANOS reduces emissions, and enhances low- to medium-speed torque, as well as fuel efficiency. Valvetronic. BMW’s Valvetronic valve control system improves engine response and refinement, while also helping to reduce fuel consumption. Instead of using a traditional throttle, the system helps the engine “breathe” better by providing fully variable lift adjustment of the inlet valves. The result: improved cold starts, smoother running, and a signifi cant drop in fuel consumption.
Lightweight suspension. In the 125i, the rigid yet lightweight suspension is the perfect counterpart to the engine. How the car reacts to the road – as well as its superb handling of acoustics and vibrations – are a result of the advanced engineering behind this crucial link to the road. The aluminium double-pivot front suspension consists of a lightweight, twin-joint tension strut design for maximum strength with minimum weight; hydro mounts reduce vibration and noise. Together with the five-link, fully independent rear suspension in lightweight steel and BMW’s signature rearwheel drive, superbly sporty handling is par for any driving course. Near 50/50 weight distribution. The front and rear axles each carry almost exactly half of the car’s weight. Balanced weight gives the 125i Coupe neutral steering and outstanding directional stability. With a sport-tuned suspension and standard Dynamic Stability Control, it remains stable in virtually all road conditions.=
6 months of registration has been renewed for this vehicle as of the 30th July 2018.
Please note the tool kit is missing and that the stereo volume control knob does not operate per specification, however the volume toggles placed on the steering wheel operates in lieu.
