By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, October 16th, 2017 at 5:39 PM

Generally, when we think of diesel engines, we tend to think of the noisy throttle of a pickup truck.  However, if you were to take a ride in the 2017 BMW 523d, you’d be pleasantly surprised at how quiet the diesel engine is.  So quiet, it practically purrs.  According to Forbes, this may be the most perfect diesel vehicle to date.  BMW California and Coast BMW, located in San Luis Obispo, are excited to offer the 2017 BMW 5 Series, and in particular, the 523d with a diesel engine.

Coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission, it’s a powerful sedan that handles effortlessly.  Fuel economy is also one of its perks, estimated at over 45 mpg.

Other Features You’ll Love About The 523d

The interior of the 523d illustrates why the BMW is considered a luxury vehicle.  You’re surrounded by plush leather, and there is a new ‘gesture control’ dashboard display that allows you to simply point your finger to switch radio stations or answer the phone.  The exterior is aesthetically pleasing with distinctive and recognizable BMW features.  You’ll appreciate the vast array of safety features including speed limit assist, adaptive cruise control, automatic braking, blind corner warning, lane keep and lane change warning. You’ll ride in unparalleled comfort and you wouldn’t expect anything less from BMW.

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, October 9th, 2017 at 5:37 PM

For you and your family’s safety, BMW California and Coast BMW, located in San Luis Obispo, urges all car owners to tread safely and make tire maintenance a top priority.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that there are 11,000 tire-related accidents each year.  Preventative maintenance can go a long way towards preventing tire mishaps.

Rotate Your Tires Regularly

To ensure even wear on your vehicle’s tires, you should regularly rotate the tires.  For maximum effectiveness, rotate your vehicle’s tires every 5,000 miles.  The Service department at Coast BMW will be glad to rotate your vehicle’s tires and check the tire treads. MW tire service

Treads Matter

The condition of your vehicle’s tire treads are a serious matter that shouldn’t be ignored.  That’s because your vehicle’s tires are the point of contact with road surfaces.  You want your vehicle’s tires to be in optimum condition to navigate roads that may be wet, slippery or even icy.  Some things you can do include checking tire pressure each month, avoid overloading your vehicle and inspect tire treads.  Add or release air as necessary, as weather elements can affect tire pressure.  Keep your trunk empty except for the bare necessities to lighten the load on your vehicle’s tires.  Eyeball your vehicle’s tires to make sure they are not balding or showing signs of excessive wear.  Do the penny test and insert it head first into a tire tread; you shouldn’t be able to see Lincoln’s head.  If you don’t know how to properly inspect tire treads or you’re not sure, ask our tire expects at Coast BMW.

Benefits Of Regular Tire Maintenance

By performing regular maintenance checkups for your vehicle’s tires, you can actually extend their lifespan, improve vehicle handling, save on fuel, and help keep the occupants of your vehicle safe.  In fact, a recent Geico article reveals that you can save up to 11 cents per gallon if your vehicle’s tires are in tip-top shape.

BMW Envisions The Cars Of Tomorrow

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, October 2nd, 2017 at 5:35 PM

Ever wonder where the automotive industry gets their ideas for new vehicle designs?  According to Forbes, BMW relies on artificial intelligence (AI) and Big Data to predict technology that will be available in the future for the cars of tomorrow.  Coast BMW, located in San Luis Obispo, your local BMW dealer, is proud to offer a full lineup of the latest BMW luxury models.

How AI and Big Data Contribute To Vehicle Design

Now that we’re aware that BMW channels information gleaned from AI and Big Data, what exactly does this entail?  For starters, Artificial Intelligence or AI, is the notion that mankind can build machines that think like humans.  In contrast, Big Data is an advanced computerized compilation of everything that affects the manufacture of automobiles from design, engineering, production, sales and customer support.  Combine the two and you have a powerful pool of technological information available to assist BMW in determining the future course of the automotive industry.

BMW’s Goal Is “Level 5” By 2021

Currently, it’s no secret that most automakers concede to the notion of a future of driverless vehicles.  BMW, however, has taken a bold step in that direction by vowing that its goal is to achieve “Level 5” status by 2021.  Many of you may be wondering what exactly is Level 5.  The Forbes article points out that Level 5, “…indicates that the car will be capable of driving with no human input or supervision and operate at least as effective as a human driver in any conditions and on any road.”

The Future Roadster – BMW Concept Z4

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 11th, 2017 at 4:37 PM

This year at the Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach, the all new concept Z4 was unveiled.  Coast BMW in San Luis Obispo couldn’t be more excited by the new take on the roadster.  The Z4 is beautiful from all angles with a decidedly dynamic look and feel.  This amazing new roadster is set to hit production in the upcoming year and we for one can’t wait to see it on the road in the future!

Classic Roadster Rethought

Many traditional aspects of the roadster were kept in the concept like a long wheelbase, a stretched out silhouette and compact rear end.  But there is no doubt that the Z4 is fresh and modern and takes many new and bold design cues from BMW’s newest line.  Tight overhangs make it possible for the driver to sit even closer to the center of the roadster.  At first glance, you will notice the roadster is a wedge shape which gives the impression of speed even when the roadster is in park.

Driving Experience Is Number One

Extreme attention to detail was given in the driving experience of the Z4.  Because of this, the interior was designed with the driver in mind.  The trim panel, driver’s seat, instrument panel and center console are all finished in black which makes them stand out from the other hues in the interior and exterior of the roadster.  With this color combination, the driver gets the sensation that the entire vehicle is wrapped around them which gives off a very sporty feel when driving.

Cruise Over To Coast BMW

While we are all going to have to wait a while longer for the Concept Z4 to become a reality, we have what you are looking for right now!  Our huge inventory of new, preowned and certified preowned BMWs are sure to make you excited about driving again.  Our Sales Team will help guide you through our showroom, pointing out the vehicles that seem to suit what you are looking for.  After you have found your new Ultimate Driving Machine, our Finance Team will ensure you take it home today with the help of a BMW car loan.  We also have a full Service Department that will help you keeping your new ride looking and driving like new.  We can’t wait to become your San Luis Obispo car dealer!

Emergencies Happen – Coast BMW Wants You To Be Prepared

By Nathalie Godoy | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, September 4th, 2017 at 4:34 PM

Emergencies happen when you least expect them, and they can happen to anyone at anytime.  Here at Coast BMW, your local BMW dealer in San Luis Obispo, we think it’s best to stay prepared for an emergency roadside situation.  One of the best ways to be prepared for a roadside emergency is to keep a variety of tools and gear that will help you out in an unforeseen circumstance.  Here is a list of the things we find most useful.

  1. First Aid Kit – include a flashlight and whistle to your basic kit
  2. Basic Tools – Three basic tools should be all you need; a screwdriver to tighten anything that becomes loose, a torque wrench to set nuts properly and a utility knife if you ever need to cut yourself free
  3. Gloves – to keep your hands protected from weather or diy maintenance
  4. Tow Rope and Bungee Cords – If you are stuck in a ditch and can find someone to tow you or if you need to secure an item to the roof of your vehicle
  5. Warning Triangles and Light Sticks – To ensure other motorists see you in case of a breakdown, day or night
  6. Tire Pressure Gauge – To check your pressure, tires tend to become over or under inflated with extreme temperatures
  7. Phone Charger – Your phone is useless in a time of crisis if it does not have enough battery charge to operate
  8. Jumper Cables – This one is obvious – if your battery dies and you need a jump from a passerby
  9. Water and Snacks – In case there is a long wait for help
  10. Extra Clothes – If you are outdoors doing any sort of activity, it’s good to have a change of clothes if you become too cold, hot or wet
  11. Kitty Litter – It will help with traction if you become stuck in the mud or snow

Help Avoid A Roadside Emergency With Coast BMW

Here at Coast BMW, we know that emergencies can happen to anyone – even the most prepared.  However, there is a way to help avoid an emergency.  Regular vehicle servicing with Coast BMWs Service Department is a wonderful way to prevent roadside emergencies.  Be sure to have your oil changed, tires checked and rotated and all of your fluids checked on a regular basis.  If you are in the market for a more reliable vehicle, our Sales Team is here to help you find what you are looking for.  We have a large selection of new, preowned and certified preowned BMWs, including the 6 Series BMW.  We know that emergencies happen, and we are here when you need us!
