Introduction

In 2012, BMW launched the F30 – the widely anticipated successor to the all-popular E90 3-Series. Since early 2012, the Bavarian brand took the leap of technological faith, and introduced the ActiveHybrid series – first on the 5-Series, then on the flagship 7, and subsequently onto the F30 3-Series.

And while environmentalists and green motoring fans swoon over the ActiveHybrid range, BMW took the liberty to further its efficiency footprint by developing the EfficientDynamics, perhaps a “not-so-green” way of saving the earth, but still beneficial to your fuel pocket money.

We took a ride in the latest BMW 320i EfficientDynamics, where we got to experience the latest lightweight technology and features set out by the German marque.

The entire experience from registering my car on OneShift to the handing over to the dealer was very pleasant. The process at OneShift was efficient and transparent. Special thanks to RenAi from OneShift who was very detailed and helpful.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
