The BMW valance is a largely cosmetic panel that is used to conceal structural details in a vehicle and giving it a unique look. The valance can be made out of various materials such as steel, urethane, plastic and aluminium. Each of these materials has their own benefits, for example, steel has good durability and may last longer than some of the other materials, however aluminium resists rust and is lightweight. The various merits of each BMW valance material should be weighed up before deciding on which is most suitable for your needs.
As well as being cosmetic, the valance is useful for protecting your vehicle from dirt and debris. It can also be used to mount foglights and other car accessories to the vehicle.
BMW valances can be installed in various bumper positions on the front and rear of the vehicle on the driverside and the passenger side.
If a BMW valance is damaged, this could impact on other accessories such as foglights if they have been installed on to the valance. Steel BMW valances could be susceptible to rust and plastic BMW valances are prone to cracking because of the material used.
- It might not be the accessory that everyone needs, but for BMW drivers in South Africa who were worried about carjackers, the 'Blaster' was a flamethrower that shot huge flames from either side of the car. Not currently available in the UK…
- One of the reasons older BMWs keep their value is because it's easy to get spare parts for even the oldest models. That's because BMW has carried on making car parts, even for cars that were built in WWII.
- 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 3.0CSL was sold in the 70s and had the unusual addition of a spoiler that was kept in the boot. The owner could install it if they wanted to, but BMW couldn't sell the car with the spoiler attached because of road laws!
- That distinctive BMW car engine sound that new owners fall in love with might not be real. The BMW M5 has such a quiet engine that they had to install fake engine noises to keep drivers happy!
