BMW Cars Fear No Water

Posted in BMW Cars

A Rainy DayWe hope you have enjoyed these first days of spring. We know that we have! The more pleasant weather will soon dominate and the earth will once again be filled with all of the glorious spring flowers. As we all know, those flowers need water to flourish so we have to endure some pretty rough rain showers. Sometimes those showers can be dangerous so it is important to take some precautions while driving in the rain. If you own a BMW from Otto’s BMW near West Chester you are already ahead of the game. Your BMW has a number of extra features that will help keep you safe. One of these features is the Active Steering. On a normal day, the Active Steering will help you steer through turns and curves by utilizing the kinetic energy generated by the automobile. On a rainy day, this program will keep you from over steering while in a skid or hydroplane situation. Over steering can lead to roll over accidents which are very dangerous for drivers. If you do happen to be in an accident your BMW has a number of air bags, even for passengers in the back seat, that will cushion the impact. There are some things that you can do to help yourself. First, use caution while driving in the rain and slow down. A slower speed will give you a longer stopping distance and provide more traction for your vehicle. You also want to make sure that your wiper blades are in good condition. Old blades will not clear water off your windshield well enough for you to see. Wiper blades should be replaced twice a year (at least), before winter and before spring. The lovely people at the service and parts department will be happy to replace the blades for you.

The fine people at Otto’s but every vehicle that comes in through a series of checklists and tests, if it does not meet the standards it does not get that coveted stamp of certification. When you find an automobile on their lot with that certified seal you can take comfort in the knowledge that you are getting a top notch automobile, that will last for years to come, and a great value.

Otto’s BMW Dealer is Ready for Adventure, Are You?

Posted in BMW Dealer

Nonthaburi - December 1: Bmw 428I Gran Coupe Car Display At ThaiWe find ourselves over halfway through March and just days away from the official start of spring and we could not be more excited! Now is the time of year when everything is renewed including our desire to get out there and embrace an adventure. We are not talking sky diving kind of adventure, more like a long car drive in our BMW from Otto’s BMW Dealer near Exton adventure. If sky diving is your thing do not let us discourage you, we just prefer to experience our adventures in a very comfortable captain’s chair, with heated and cooled seats, climate control and a sweet sound system. It may seem as though it really is not an adventure if you have all of those things but isn’t an adventure anything you do that is new and outside of what you would normally do? We think so. An adventure is also more fun if you are with family and friends! The great news is that most BMW models have room for more than four people, not the coupes but that is understandable. If you are someone who really enjoys long road trips, may we suggest one of the BMW Hybrid models? You will get an amazing fuel economy without sacrificing the luxury and comfort that you expect from a BMW. If you are not sure about committing to a hybrid you will be happy to learn that most BMW models come with ECO Pro Mode that increases fuel economy by up to twenty percent without having a hybrid engine. There are just so many innovations on each one of the BMW models that you really need to stop by the Otto’s BMW Dealer lot and have one of the friendly sales staff members show you all of the great features that BMW has to offer.

Let Your BMW Roar like a Lion

Posted in BMW Dealer

Lion And LambWe all know the expression that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, but did you know that this also applies to your BMW from Otto’s BMW Dealer near West Chester? It does, an no we do not mean that your BMW starts out like a lion and ends up as a lamb, it can refer to the driving dynamics of your car. You might not realize that new BMW automobiles come equipped with changeable driving dynamics that can be calibrated to fit your moods. With a more dynamic driving program you will feel more as though you are driving a sports car or coupe. That more dynamic driving experience can be achieved even in a sedan. A sedan! Bet you never thought that could happen! Likewise, if you want a quieter, more laid back experience, simply downgrade your dynamics. Both of these dynamics are possible on the same vehicle. No longer do you have to pick between practicality and fun. You can have both! This lion and lamb metaphor does not stop at the driving dynamics, it also applies to the over aesthetics. The outside of BMW looks powerful and proud, like a lion. The inside has fabrics and surfaces that are soft and delicate, yet strong, like a lamb. A BMW from Otto’s BMW Dealer truly embodies this commonly known phrase. Do not just take our word for it. Come by the Otto’s BMW Dealership lot and let one of our friendly sales staff member show you all of the great attributes found in a BMW. Once they have peaked your interest, take one of our fine automobiles for a test drive and experience the different dynamics for yourself, you will not be disappointed. We hope to see you on one of our lovely lots soon!
