25 Years of All-Wheel Drive BMWs
via BimmerFile For 25 Years BMW has been a leader in all-wheel drive technology. From the first 325iX to the latest X3 all-wheel drive has been a important and continually growing part of BMW’s business. We at BF have often derided the need for all-wheel drive as being born out of marketing. And while it’s true that many people driving xDrive equipped cars may not need the system, there are those that not only need it but require it. It’s because of this that, 25 after it’s introduction, BMW has expanded the all-wheel drive option to almost every car they make. BMW currently offers 45 models in which xDrive provides variable distribution of drive between the front and rear wheels. These models extend all the way from the BMW X models via the BMW 3 Series and BMW 5 Series ranges to the BMW 7 Series family of luxury Saloons. 1985 saw all-wheel drive offered for the first time for the BMW 3 Series – both as an extension of the model range and as an alternative to the customary BMW rear-wheel drive. By now BMW was using the transfer of power to both axles not only to optimise traction on loose surfaces and in adverse weather conditions, but also to enhance dynamic performance though corners. The latest version of the BMW xDrive all-wheel-drive system rises to this challenge more effectively than ever. Linking the all-wheel-drive system up with Integrated Chassis Management (ICM) means that all situations on the road can be recognised and evaluated to allow the necessary control interventions to be made at an early stage. These can be carried out by xDrive either on its own or in combination with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) or Performance Control. The power is distributed quickly and with great precision to where it is needed, ensuring that the driver enjoys the handling characteristics he would expect from a BMW – even under extremely dynamic cornering. In contrast to other manufacturers, who use all-wheel drive principally to make up for the shortfall in traction suffered by front-wheel-drive vehicles, BMW tunes its xDrive system to provide handling typical of rear-wheel drive. Even in normal situations on the road, all-wheel-drive BMW models send the lion’s share of drive to the rear wheels, the same place where the brand’s cars with only one driven axle turn power into optimum dynamic performance. This ensures that the hallmark BMW steering precision is virtually free from drive forces in all-wheel-drive models as well. Indeed, all-wheel drive actually enhances the driving experience through corners. In order to enable particularly precise turn-in and a high level of directional stability, the latest-generation xDrive sends more drive to the rear axle on the way into corners. And that takes the brand’s characteristic driving pleasure to a new level once again. All-wheel-drive technology from BMW: rigorous further development, dynamic growth. Over the last 25 years at BMW, all-wheel drive has developed from an option initially limited to selected models to a growth driver for the ongoing expansion of the model range. At the time it was launched in the second-generation BMW 3 Series, all-wheel drive was offered exclusively in conjunction with a 2.5-litre six-cylinder in-line petrol engine producing 126 kW/171 hp. Today, xDrive can be specified for the BMW 3 Series in tandem with any of three six-cylinder petrol engines, a four-cylinder petrol unit and a six-cylinder diesel powerplant. The permanent all-wheel drive of the BMW 325iX unveiled in 1985 channelled power to the front and rear wheels at a constant 37 : 63 percent split. Visco locks in the transfer case and final drive took their cues from the difference in rotation speed between the front and rear wheels to provide virtually fixed connections if required, and in this way optimise traction and driving stability. From 1988 customers could also order a Touring variant of the BMW 325iX. Three years later came the arrival of all-wheel drive in the BMW 5 Series, accompanied by the debut of electric control systems governing the distribution of power. The newly developed system had multi-plate clutches which could be controlled automatically and continuously to vary the usual distribution of drive in normal conditions – 36 : 64 percent between the front and rear wheels – as required. Initially, a hydraulically controlled multi-plate clutch was used at the rear axle, but this was later replaced by electronically controlled brake inputs. The control unit of the all-wheel-drive system took into account wheel speed signals from the anti-lock braking system, the rotational speed and position of the engine’s throttle valves and the status of the brakes when analysing the driving situation. From the outset the all-wheel-drive system of the BMW 525ix – fitted with a six-cylinder petrol engine developing 141 kW/192 hp – proved to be a superior concept to that of its competitors. The electronic control system allowed extremely rapid and precise reactions,
Hirst, Damien (1965- ) - 2002 Burning Wheel (Tate Gallery, London)
Color etching; 91.0 x 71.0 cm. The controversial painter, sculptor and installation artist Damien Hirst is one of the world's most commercially successful contemporary artists. A leading member of the postmodernist generation known as Young British artists, he first came to prominence in the 1990s for his series of dead animals preserved and floating in formaldehyde. Influenced by Francis Bacon, his most famous works of avant-garde art include A Thousand Years (1989), a glass case with maggots and flies feeding off a rotting cow's head; The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living (1991), a tiger shark in a glass tank of formaldehyde and For The Love of God, a platinum cast of an 18th century human skull covered in ?15,000,000 worth of diamonds. Hirst is also known for his 'spin paintings,' manufactured on a rotating circular surface, and 'spot paintings,' consisting of rows of randomly-colored dots or circles. Hirst has been praised by many for galvanizing interest in the British arts and in helping to create the image of a 'Cool Britannia'. Moreover, a large number of art professionals and experts have been quick to acknowledge his prowess in marketing works of art. Even so, his critics are no less vocal. A Daily Mail headline stated "For 1,000 years art has been one of our great civilizing forces. Today, pickled sheep and soiled beds threaten to make barbarians of us all." Artist Charles Thomson of the The Stuckist Art Group wrote of Hirst's works: "They're bright and they're zany - but that's all there is at the end of the day." And in a 2008 TV documentary The Mona Lisa Curse, the respected modern art critic Robert Hughes attacked Hirst's work as 'tacky' and 'absurd' . However, despite the sceptics, Hirst continues to be a best-seller and, despite a bust-up with his erstwhile patron Charles Saatchi, the latter remains a staunch supporter of Hirst's artistic talent, commenting: "general art books dated 2105 will be as brutal about editing the late 20th century as they are about almost all other centuries. Every artist other than Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, Donald Judd and Damien Hirst will be a footnote."
