One prime example of BMW engineering is the Brake System on the 2011 BMW X3 you would find here in Denver. The 2011 BMW X3 is BMW’s version of a Luxury SUV. Complete with a luxurious interior, the X3 also comes with BMW’s fine engineering. The brake system of the 2011 BMW X3 is a good example of the superb engineering that comes with every BMW. The X3 makes a superb vehicle for driving in the weather of the Denver area.
The 2011 BMW X3 brake system comes with BMW’s patented slotted design. The extra slots in the brake system allow the brakes to cool down after use much faster than other brake systems. Even better, these brakes do not run as hot as other brake systems, increasing safety by minimizing the chances of the 2011 BMW X3 brake system locking up due to excessive heat. Each wheel comes with its own fitted brake calipers and brake pads. The slotted design allows your pads to have a longer life than other vehicles, even if you do a lot of starting and stopping when behind the wheel. While the brakes on NASCAR stock cars may look exciting when they produce sparks, this is not desired for a personal vehicle.
The 2011 BMW X3 comes with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), which using electronic input from both the tires and the engine, allows the brakes to use the speed of the tires, the condition of the road and the weight on each wheel to provide the most effective and safe braking options. This ability to vary the force provided on each wheel allows the driver to stay in control. Even if the car is skidding or on a slippery surface, the EBD allows the driver to remain in control. This is an essential safety feature on a SUV, which may be traveling off road or on some dirt roads or roads that are less maintained.
Another advantage of the 2011 BMW X3 is its Stability Control system. This allows the car to automatically correct tire speed during sharp turns preventing loss of control by the driver. This is especially helpful in off road conditions and prevents over braking by the driver. With the Stability Control system, even when rounding an unexpected hairpin turn on a Denver mountain road, you will not find yourself standing on your brakes to make it around the curve. Clearly, this is a much safer way to operate your X3.
