BMW xDrive, the most intelligent all-wheel-drive system available, is no longer limited to BMW X models such as the X1, X3, X5 and X6; you can now choose xDrive models from the BMW 1 Series and 3 Series ranges as well as the new BMW 4 Series Coupé range.
Nothing is as predictably unpredictable as the British weather! It's not unusual to experience all four seasons in one day with bright sunshine one minute and torrential rain the next. That's why it pays to be able to adapt.
Reacting in the blink of an eye to changing driving conditions, BMW xDrive balances power between all the wheels to deliver the performance you'd expect from the ultimate driving machine without compromising efficiency.
By permanently monitoring which tyres have the most traction and reacting in milliseconds to any loss of grip, the xDrive system subtly shifts the car's power to the appropriate axle for maximum road holding, whatever the driving conditions.
Moreover, unlike many all-wheel-drive systems, xDrive is fully variable so it eliminates virtually all under steer as the front wheels only receive power when required.

With twice as many accidents happening in the winter, it's a fact that driving conditions can become more treacherous when the weather gets colder. The best way to ensure a safe journey is by using tyres that have been specially developed to cope with the lower temperatures and inclement weather. Already common practise in many countries, it is easy to see why winter tyres are growing in popularity in Scotland.
With an Approved Winter Tyre Package from Douglas Park, your BMW will perform exactly as you have come to expect and will get you safely through the winter months, no matter what Mother Nature throws your way.
