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.
But that’s just for starters. We’re carrying on
our research – in the quest to bring you more
driving pleasure and less consumption.
s Standard equipment
o Optional equipment
o Xenon headlights for high and low beam,
with automatic headlight range control, daytime
driving lights with light rings.

variable light distribution for improved visibility
in bends: the adjustable headlights are directed
into the bend when the vehicle starts cornering.
o High beam assist for automatic high and
low beam.
o Headlight washing system ensures
optimum headlight brightness in all kinds of
weather. When the lights are on, the headlights
are automatically cleaned in parallel with the
windscreen (only in combination with Xenon
lights*).
o Satin Chrome comprises front and rear sidewindow frames and window recess finishers in

tap on the brake pedal and a hard stop – for
increased driving safety.
s Rear light with LED indicators and five
radial LED light conductors ensures optimum
recognition even in poor visibility. Clear glass
sets off this high-quality, modern
lighting technology, making for an individual
appearance.

Nothing beats true character.
The Lifestyle, Exclusive and Sports Editions*.
The size of a personality is always the sum of its characteristics. The
BMW 5 Series gives the impression of complete self-assurance with its
ideal combination of dynamics, comfort and style. 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. This is continued into the interior: with an M leather
steering wheel, sports seats upholstered in a “Flashlight” cloth/leather
combination and an interior trim in Aluminium Pentane.

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.
