The cheapest BMW (for now)? .
If you hear about BMW, you might think of luxury sedans, or maybe SUVs. But, how if you're a young teen, or moms, who wants a practical, compact, and luxury crossover/small SUV? So there you go, the BMW X1 (F48) sDrive18i Dynamic Line is perfect for you! Based on a UKL2 (Untere-Klasse) platfrom, that was made by BMW for those subcompact/compact BMW cars with FF/F4 drivetrain, this platform was also used by MINI Cooper, BMW 2-Series (MPV), and BMW X2. With a nicer and more reasonable design than the E84 X1, that looks a bit weird, especially on the back design (the face). I think, with this design, there will be more people will like it. For the engine, it uses a 1.5L (B38A15MO) 3-cylinder Turbo engine that produces 136HP and 220NM (Indonesian spec). Actually, this engine is quite responsive, and even it's a 3-cylinder engine, the vibration is not too much, even it's better than some 4-cylinder engines here. Sadly, in Indonesia, there is only one choice of engine (1.5L B38), and also only one choices of drivetrain (FF). In Indonesia, there's only 2 types being sold, named the Dynamic Line, and also the xLine. This Dynamic Line type got a simpler body styling, wheels, interior, etc, since it is the entry level for BMW cars (for now), and also the cheapest BMW that you can buy for now. Price? This car prices started from IDR 619 million - 669 million, making it's the cheapest BMW that you can buy (for now). Curious about the details of the car features? Stay tune, I'll try to post another posts in some few hours/days! :) .
It's been 1 year and 14,000 daily driven miles on my f1a procharged stock motor Camaro. I've had zero issues thanks to the awesome work done by @frans96ss and the @raceprovenmotorsports team. I'm looking forward to finishing the build with them in the near future. Here's a pic taken by @bsaintmedia while the car was at the shop a year ago. Thanks guys!
My unlucky self snapped a belt tonight 😂 Was just about to get it changed too. Oh well, fun for tomorrow.
Couple of cover bolts and the preparations are ✅. Everything inspected, everything measured three times, all bearings replaced, all seals replaced, headports streamlined, valves grinded/fitted, exhaust camshafts swapped, timing checked, tensioners built, pistons swapped, heavy duty clutch parts installed, a bit of paintjob added, better as new and I am not doing this ever again with this kind of schedule. 😁 #forcedinduction#preparations#aprilia#rsv1000
