BMW 5 Series Saloon 520i 523i 525i/xi 530i/xi 540i 550i 520d 525d/xd 530d/xd 535d Sheer Driving Pleasure What power does the BMW 5 Series Saloon exert? A power of good. What do you find on uneven roads and tight bends? Your inner balance. What’s most impressive about Active Cruise Control? It goes the distance. Why was the four-wheel drive xDrive developed? The rules of the road. What can you do in the cockpit of the BMW 5 Series Saloon? Reach every target. What does this interior represent when you're out and about? A home from home. What’s that noise from the loudspeakers? The applause. This is how much we’ve invested. And this is what’s come out of it. The pleasure you get from driving a BMW is the result of fine engineering – always setting the benchmark because it is based on much more than engine power. This is the tradition behind BMW EfficientDynamics. It includes the visionary CleanEnergy hydrogen-powered engine, already used in a number of completely emission-free BMW 7 Series saloons. Also going into production soon is the BMW ActiveHybrid – an intelligent, demand-oriented engine combining combustion and electronics. And every BMW already includes a technology package as standard that boosts dynamics even further whilst simultaneously reducing fuel consumption and CO2emissions. High Precision Injection In this cutting-edge generation of petrol direct injection, the Piezo injectors are positioned very close to the spark plugs. They inject the fuel at high pressure and with extreme precision. The injectors’ central positioning means only part of the combustion chamber needs to be filled with an ignitable petrol-air mixture. The engine can then run “leanly” and so efficiently, precisely in the heavily used moderate load range. (520i, 523i, 525i, 530i) Air vent control Engine management signals the engine’s current cooling capacity requirements constantly while driving. Rendering a permanent airstream through the radiator unnecessary. The air vents in front of the radiator open or close depending on the environmental temperature and road speed. When shut they improve aerodynamics, shorten the engine’s warm-up time and so reduce fuel consumption. (all models) Shift Point Display Timely gear shifts are one of the most effective and easiest ways to save fuel. This is where Shift Point Display in conjunction with 6-speed manual transmission comes in. It shows the driver what gear to use in order to save fuel. (520i, 523i, 525i, 530i, 540i, 550i, 520d, 525d, 530d) Tyres with reduced rolling-resistance While driving, tyres are constantly changing shape. This uses up energy and thus fuel. Tyres with reduced rolling-resistance have an improved design and use special materials for their road treads and side walls, thus reducing deformation. (520i, 523i, 525i, 520d, 525d) Brake Energy Regeneration To supply a battery with electrical energy, the generator (alternator) is customarily driven using engine power, which demands permanent fuel consumption. Brake Energy Regeneration means the generator usually only generates electricity when the driver either takes the foot off the accelerator or brakes – previously unused kinetic energy is transformed in coasting mode into electrical energy before being fed into the battery. In this way, electricity is generated while coasting, without consuming fuel. (all models) Individual BMW EfficientDynamics features may be excluded, depending on the optional equipment chosen. Your BMW Partner will be pleased to provide you with more information. BMW Ef Efficient Dynamics. BMW already offers 21 models with CO 2 emissions of 140 g/km and significantly less.

Now we’ve accentuated its diversity in a very special way – with three attractive Editions: discover the elegant Exclusive edition, the distinctive Lifestyle Edition and the dynamic Sports Edition. o Turn every drive into a special occasion: with the Exclusive Edition. It attracts admiring glances wherever it goes – for example with the Exclusive Platinum Bronze paintwork or five other metallic paint finishes. Chrome-plated window frame surrounds and windscreen washer jets also contribute to its all-round lustrous appearance, consummated only by elegant 17-inch light-alloy wheels in a 277 V-spoke design. Comfort seats upholstered in the most opulent Exclusive Nappa leather in a choice of Black, Tobacco or an interior trim in anthracite Variegated Bamboo create a highly exclusive ambience. o Overtake the Zeitgeist – with the Lifestyle Edition. Exclusive Neptune Blue metallic paintwork, for example, demonstrates a confident, original lifestyle at very first glance. It harmonises perfectly with the window frame surrounds in matt Black (Satin Chrome) and the 17-inch light-alloy wheels in a double-spoke 278 design. In the interior you can anticipate, for example, a Poplar Grain Grey fine-wood interior trim and the distinctive “Reflex” cloth/leather upholstery. A range of other metallic paint finishes and upholstery options are available for the Lifestyle Edition. o You can recognise a dynamic car by the emotions it engenders – like the BMW 5 Series Sports Edition. Its impressive power is reflected in its exclusive finish in Carbon Black, Imola Red or Le Mans Blue, with highgloss Satin Chrome. An M sports suspension, 18-inch double-spoke 135 M light-alloy wheels (19-inch double-spoke 172 M light-alloy wheels optionally available), front and rear aprons and side skirts all convey pure dynamism.

More about BMW www.bmw.com Sheer Driving Pleasure BMW Recycling. Your BMW is the product of a comprehensive recycling concept. But what exactly does that mean in practice? It means that all the requirements of recycling are taken into account from the start, in the initial development of a BMW. One example is careful material selection designed to preserve resources and to ensure efficient recycling compatible with the environment. Each BMW is designed and built for simple and economic recycling after its long running life. Since 1994, we have been collecting the know-how required for this purpose at the unique BMW Recycling and Dismantling Centre (RDC) near Munich. At the same time, the BMW Group is establishing a complete network of vehicle recycling facilities within Europe, focusing in the process on the high standards of quality and environmental care that BMW is renowned for. Please contact your BMW partner on all matters regarding your end-of-life vehicle. They will be happy to help. 8 11 005 019 18 1 2008 VZ. Printed in Germany 2008.
