Headquartered in Munich, BMW’s reputation is built on its vehicles’ performance. The compact 3 Series sedan remains a staple with a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive, called xDrive. The coupe and convertible variants are known as the 4 Series. A newer animal called a Gran Coupe has four doors but a coupe like profile. Conventional gas-powered cars also include the subcompact 2 Series, mid-size 5 Series and full-size 7 Series.
BMW’s luxury SUV lineup is wider than ever with the subcompact X1, compact X3, mid-size X5 and three-row X7 that seats up to seven. In between are sportier versions with lowered roofs — the X2, X4 and X6.
BMW now offers plug-in hybrid versions of the X3, X5 and 3; 5 and 7 Series. The small i3 EV is available in battery-only form or with a gasoline generator backup, and the exciting i8 is a plug-in hybrid.

PRIMER, COLOR, AND CLEARCOAT
Naturally, you need precisely mixed colored paint to do a touch up paint job. But, you also need other materials. Specifically, primer is required for damage that has reached the original base material. Also, clearcoat is required to produce a thin protective layer for your paint job once dried.
WAX AND GREASE REMOVER CLOTH
Additionally, the wax and grease remover cloths remove wax, grease, and contaminants before painting.
Don’t forget that wet-sanding the affected area prior to painting removes rust and prepares the surface with a rough finish so the paint can stick better.
And finally, the polishing compound smooths everything out with to factory-grade finish.
