New 1 Series inspires feelings of nostalgia."

There are others too. I was surprised that an official BMW document held so many typo's.

But it is a cool document!:thumbup:

As I read through the document the first time, my thought was that I was reading a document written in German and then translated to English. If so, then if translation was done by a native German speaker, this might explain the typos.

BTW, the typos are not an issue for me. I understood what was being said.

Not in the 3 series cars at all right now...
Mine was made in week six. So I guess it gets the old version. That's annoying.

Also, servotronic only refers to variable assist, not to weather the steering is electric/hydraulic/mechanical
if you read that link it I put there it basically says BMW has 3 types of steering, servotronic witch is a electric servo driven hydraulic power steering witch is the standard engine driven hydraulic and active steering. the servo hydraulic is the one with the bad reviews. at least that is what I got out of a little research but i could be wrong wouldn't be the first time :iono:

BMWeber,

I read your link. I was under the impression that the system getting bad reviews was actually EPS(electric power steering), as used on the R56 Mini, Some Z4's and some euro 1 series cars. This system is fully electric, no hydraulics, just an electric motor atached to the rack or steering column. If you look at some of the pictures of the 125i cab, there is no PS reservoir at all.

Sethchan, since the new DSC function appears to be nothing more than a software application perhaps at some point it will be available via a download from your friendly BMW dealer. Here's hoping...............

It's not that I drive like I'd really need that, it's more a matter of principle.

Hard to say they are delivering it from March 08 production on, when BMW Has has been delivering the E82 with the eLSD in Germany and UK already. I read that as to be in lines with the date of the document that says March 2008 right at the top of it...

I think in the end it is just a better explanation of what the E-Diff is and that all 135i will have it, since none are coming before March to the states and it is new to BMW in any model they are telling the techs as of March 2008.

Here's a bit of interesting news. Not sure I like it too much:

Quote:
The 135i is equipped with a trim weight on the rear bumper. This component contributes to an overall improvement in axle-load distribution.
Hmmm, so much for leaving out a spare tire and jack to save weight! How about putting those back in and removing the "trim weight".

Can't wait to see how all this engineering really feels!

The only technologies I don't plan to engage enthusiastically are the deformation zones....

Am I crazy or does the comparison table show the 1 as being heavier than the 3? Hopefully, it is more of the weird bunch of bad proofreading on this issue.
