About Grab Handles

 

The BMW grab handle is a useful device which has the primary function of assisting with the ease of entering and exiting the vehicle. This function is particularly beneficial for elderly people or people with mobility difficulties. The grab handle allows some leverage enabling the user to lift themselves out of the seat with ease.

Usually made from a mixture of plastics and strong, woven cloth, grab handles are usually mounted in the roof, located just above the car door and can be found on all of the car doors.

Although primarily functioning to assist when entering or leaving a vehicle, grab handles located in the rear of a car are also used by car owners to hang up items of clothing, such as a smart suit, that would otherwise get creased. The grab handle is also used by passengers to help them to get comfortable when travelling, when shifting position in the seat, for example. Passengers can also grab hold of the BMW grab handle to keep them steady if the car has to stop suddenly, for example.

If the functionality of the grab handle has been compromised in any way, for example, has been broken; snapped; not fixed to the mounting securely; or is coming loose, it will need to be replaced. Purchasing a new BMW grab handle for your vehicle will ensure the ideal fit for the make and model of your car.

BMW trivia

  • Pop Art legend Andy Warhol was asked to hand paint a BMW, and he did the whole thing on a full-sized model in 24 minutes. He said afterwards, "I adore the car, it's much better than a work of art."
  • The Cold War affected BMW sales so significantly that the company was nearly bought out by their arch-rivals Mercedes in 1959. A silent investor saved the company, but the rivalry between BMW and Mercedes Benz is ongoing.
  • Everyone knows what the BMW logo looks like, but do you know what it represents? Most people think it's inspired by propellers (because of BMW's aviation history), but it's really just the same colour scheme as the Bavarian flag and was designed to showcase Bavaria.
  • Electric cars might be all the rage now, but BMW built their first one in 1972 and called it the BMW 1602e. It didn't quite make it to market though, thanks to the fact that it could only hold a twenty-minute charge.
  • The BMW company was founded way back in 1916 and originally manufactured engines for planes. High demand for plane engines during WWI was good news for BMW, but they carried on making plane engines right up until 1945.
