How to Improve your BMW 528e’s Performance
Your second generation BMW 528e may be a bit slow and old, but that doesn't mean that there's no more room for improvements. There are ways in which you can enhance its performance, while at the same time, making it more fun to drive. Because admit it, even though this car has some issues with engine power, it could still give you a comfortable ride and excellent fuel economy. So, why discard it already? You can save yourself the expense of buying a new car and just give your BMW 528e a number of upgrades. Here are ways on how to improve the performance of your BMW 528e.
There's nothing like adding some hi-tech gadgets to blast your old car into the present—no matter how small these gadgets may be. You can start by removing your old stereo and replacing it with a new one that can utilize your phone's music library or can accommodate a flash drive so you can hear your playlist in the background even as you drive. And if you're looking for even more upgrades, add an electronic GPS navigation system as well for those adventures and road trips.
- Give your car more room to breathe.
Maybe it's about time that your car gets a new set of intake system and air filters? Well, a new set of those won't magically make your car run like new, but they would definitely help your car maximize its potential. Especially with the 528e's issues with engine power, a new set of intake system and air filter can improve the output by a few horsepower. And you know how much your car would really appreciate some extra kick. But if you want to be more thorough though, you can also replace your exhaust system to improve your car's exhaust. You will be spending more, though.
- Check on your car's weatherstripping.
Since your car is well past its prime, its parts may have started to deteriorate as well. And your car's weatherstripping is definitely not an exception. Compared to the engine, the weatherstripping has a simpler task. But make no mistake, its role is very significant when it comes to your comfort and your car's protection. But let's be honest here, you've probably never given much thought to check its condition or even more so, have it replaced. And in case you were wondering why your car doesn't seem to retain the cold air from your air conditioning system anymore, this could be the reason whu. Your car's weatherstripping can lose its adhesive property and in the process, loses its ability to seal-off your cabin from the outside, thus causing the air to slip through your doors and leak water during a rainy day.
