It’s November in the East Valley. Summer temperatures are finally gone and once again its time for Saturday afternoon college football, high school Friday night football, winter lawns, and also time for the grand entrance of the 2006 model vehicles.

Chapman BMW of Scottsdale, located at 6601 E. McDowell Road, (near 68th St & McDowell Roads), is proud to announce the arrival on their showroom floors of the all new "3 Series" BMW. With more trunk space, an improved transmission, more rear seat space and an even higher quality stereo system what's not to like? These BMWs offer fuel economy, high performance engines, and free scheduled maintenance, plus the exemplary fit and finish of a BMW standard to the automotive industry. This is the fifth generation of a car that created a concept. Auto makers such as Volvo and Acura have used BMW as the benchmark when they go out to design smaller luxury sedans. The 3 series is renowned for exceptional agility and balance without compromising comfort or room. Technology abounds on the 3 Series automobiles. Active Steering that actually turns the front wheels coupled with 150 mile run flat tires are just some of the newer achievements on this luxury sports sedan. BMW is known for its technological advances. It’s part of the reason people buy a BMW in the first place. The 2006 Series 3 are roomier than their predecessors, have better handling, and stop shorter. The 2006 BMW 3-series stands among a legacy of high quality BMW products.
