BMW (Bayerische Motoren Werke in German, or Bavarian Motor Works in English) is a German multinational company which currently produces luxury automobiles and motorcycles, and also produced aircraft engines until 1945.
The BMW E81/E82/E87/E88 is the first generation of the BMW 1 Series range of small hatchback, coupe and convertible cars, which were produced from 2004 to 2013.
The BMW 3 Series (E90/E91/E92/E93) is the fifth generation compact executive car of the BMW 3 Series, which was produced from 2004 to 2013.
The BMW E60/E61 series is the fifth generation of the BMW 5 Series, which was sold from 2003 to 2010.
The BMW N45 is a naturally aspirated straight-4 DOHC engine which replaced the N40 and was produced from 2004-2011.
The BMW N46 is a straight-4 DOHC piston engine which replaced the N42 and was produced from 2004 to 2015.
Engine displacement is the swept volume of all the pistons inside the cylinders of a reciprocating engine in a single movement from top dead centre (TDC) to bottom dead centre (BDC).
In non-diesel internal combustion engines, gasoline direct injection (GDI), also known as petrol direct injection, direct petrol injection, spark-ignited direct injection (SIDI) and fuel-stratified injection (FSI), is a variant of fuel injection employed in modern two-stroke and four-stroke gasoline engines.
The inline-four engine or straight-four engine is a type of inline internal combustion four-cylinder engine with all four cylinders mounted in a straight line, or plane along the crankcase.
BMW has been producing engines for automobiles, motorcycles and aircraft since 1917, when production began on a straight-six aircraft engine.
A naturally aspirated engine is an internal combustion engine in which oxygen intake depends solely on atmospheric pressure and does not rely on forced induction through a turbocharger or a supercharger.
Overhead camshaft, commonly abbreviated to OHC, is a valvetrain configuration which places the camshaft of an internal combustion engine of the reciprocating type within the cylinder heads ("above" the pistons and combustion chambers) and drives the valves or lifters in a more direct manner compared with overhead valves (OHV) and pushrods.
Prince is the codename for a family of automobile straight-4 engines developed by PSA Peugeot Citroën and BMW.
Sulfur or sulphur is a chemical element with symbol S and atomic number 16.
A turbocharger, or colloquially turbo, is a turbine-driven forced induction device that increases an internal combustion engine's efficiency and power output by forcing extra air into the combustion chamber.
The Valvetronic system is a BMW variable valve lift system which, in combination with variable valve timing, allows infinite adjustment of the intake valve timing and duration.
