It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Ok, maybe we’re jumping the gun a little early, but that hasn’t deterred BMW from releasing their Lifestyle Collection for the festive season. Here’s what you can stick under the tree for the BMW lover in your life.

BMW Snow Racer: Race through the snow on this cool sled. Equipped with smooth, replaceable metal runners, this sporty sled offers safe fun in the snow. The Snow Racer also comes outfitted with a precise steering mechanism with suspension, a non-slip wheel, an ergonomic seat, broad runners and a horn on the steering wheel.

BMW Joy Back Pack: Made with a specially ventilated, thickly padded back, this BMW back pack is comfortable to carry. It comes with different sized compartments lined with fleece, premium black coloring, decorated with Joy lettering, and a bag tag and BMW badge.

BMW Classic Ladies’ Watch: Boasting a classical look, this watch’s elegant black dial, with three white hands and date display, is enclosed in a 30 mm stainless steel casing that is water resistant up to 10 atm. It also comes with a fine metal fastener and clasp, a black leather strap, a discrete BMW logo on the dial, and the laser-engraved BMW logo on the back of the precision Swiss Quartz mechanism.

BMW M3 GT2 Toy Convertible: This kid’s racer is a perfect replica of the legendary BMW racing car, from the M logo on the doors to the sponsor’s branding beneath the radiator grill. Available in two versions, there’s a motorized version with a maximum speed of 2.5 m/h, forward and reverse gears, and a 1.5-hour driving time before being recharged, and a pedal version, where your little speed racers can determine the speed and rest periods for themselves.

BMW USB Stick: It may look like a genuine vehicle key but, but it’s really a data-storage device. To open, just click on the trunk-button and out slides out the well-protected USB plug that can store up to 8GB. You can bring it with you in your car to play all your favorite tunes, as it fits perfectly into the BMW USB audio port or the USB port of other modern navigation systems.

PRESS RELEASE

Festive Joy. The BMW Lifestyle Collection.

Munich. There are surprises for adults and children alike – from Snow Racer sleds to USB sticks, from watches to back packs. The extensive BMW Lifestyle Collection includes gift ideas for both young and old, and it’s available at selected BMW dealerships and on the Internet at www.bmw-shop.com.

Hot on the slopes: the BMW Snow Racer.

Every child who finds this speedster under their Christmas tree will hope that winter never comes to an end. The BMW Snow Racer,with its smooth, replaceable metal runners, is pure winter joy. The sporty sled isn’t just quick off the mark and a stunner on the slopes – it also offers safe fun in the snow. Its precise steering mechanism with suspension soaks up small bumps as you go and the non-slip wheel, which has a limited steering lock, prevents overly risky manoeuvres. An ergonomic seat and broad runners where kids can place their feet ensure a stable sitting position. And the horn on the steering wheel means that you can warn Sunday strollers to get out of the way.

This combination of fun, safety, and high-quality materials (the BMW Snow Racer is made of cold- and UV-resistant plastic) has been safety-approved by TÜV Rheinland. The silver Bobby Bob in BMW Motorsport design is suitable for children from four to ten years old.

A bag that’s full of joy: the BMW Joy back pack.

Santa Claus would be well advised to upgrade to a BMW Joy back pack for Christmas. The specially ventilated, thickly padded back of the BMW Joy back pack makes it exceptionally comfortable to wear. Different sized compartments lined with fleece provide room for documents, drinks, computer equipment, and other travelling items. With premium black coloring, decorated with Joy lettering, and also coming with a bag tag and BMW badge, its outside is as much fun as its inside.


Time to celebrate: the BMW Classic ladies’ watch.

The BMW Classic ladies’ watch shimmers in its classical look. Its elegant black dial, with three white hands and date display, is enclosed in a 30 mm stainless steel casing that is water resistant up to 10 atm. The fastener and clasp are made of the same fine metal and, offset against a black leather strap, a classic look is emphasized. A discrete BMW logo on the dial, and the laser-engraved BMW logo on the back of the precision Swiss Quartz mechanism, complete this decorative piece. The watch is supplied in a high-quality leather case.

Simply plug it in, turn on your audio system, and enjoy your own personal music mix while you drive.
