So what is the BMW Meaning? Let’s discuss that along with other questions you might have.
Questions and Answers
The i means it is a petrol/gasoline engine. D would mean its diesel. “li” means its an extended wheelbase and “xi” means it is all wheel drive (new bmw’s just call it xdrive)
the last two are a little complicated and refer to the engine and variation of facelift or non-facelift. For example the 323i is non facelifted while the 325I is facelifted(updated design) and the 330i has a larger engine, usually more powerful engine. However the number is a little confusing so refer to the year/model numbers . For example the 3 series starts from E21, then E30, E36, E46, E90 (E92) and F30. And then once you know those numbers you can figure out what car has what engine, for example an E46 323i has a 2.5 I6 which is the exact same one as the E46 325i .
Does anyone know what either of these mean?Http://s99.photobucket.com/albums/l298/r…

BMW Art Cars: A Comprehensive Catalogue of the Artist + Automobile Project (Core77)
Andy Warhol, BMW M1 Group 4, 1979_
There is, for the most part, a fairly clear distinction between art and design. The former contains its meaning within itself, while the latter points towards external goals or values, for which it is merely an instrument or vehicle to achieve or access those ends. In both cases, function is an overarching constraint: Art, by definition, has no practical purpose; design is precisely the opposite.
Of course, artists and designers alike have challenged this boundary, typically with by questioning the very concept of one domain vis-a-vis the other, whether it’s Duchamp’s readymades or speculative design projects that point to alternate universes or futures. If the concept car (the subject of a forthcoming exhibition) is an earnest attempt at elevating design into art–at least to the extent that few of them are ever realized–BMW’s ongoing Art Car project inverts the dynamic by forcing artists to conform to the immutable shape of a functional object. In short, the automobile is less a three- dimensional canvas than a sculpture in itself, a machine intended, designed and optimized for performance on the road or racetrack.
