s Standard equipment
o Optional equipment
s Xenon headlights provide brilliant clarity
of the road ahead and to the side at night and
in conditions with poor visibility. Adaptive
Headlights illuminate the road around
corners, using a system that directs the
headlights into and through road bends.
o High-beam Assistant automatically turns
high beams on and off, as needed, based on
light sensor readings.
s Redesigned taillights add fresh, dramatic
flair with raised horizontal ribbing and restyled
white reverse lights.
s Adaptive Brake Lights increase vehicle
visibility and signal the intensity of your
braking action.
s Roof rails closely hug the lines of the roof.
They easily accommodate additional cargo,
as well as bicycles, skis, snowboards, etc.,
when equipped with the multifunctional
BMW roof rack system. (Refer to the Original
BMW Accessories catalog or visit your
authorized BMW center for a full selection.)
o 18 x 8.0 Star Spoke (Style 124) cast alloy wheels with 245/40R-18 run-flat performance
tires.1 (Requires 535xi Sport Package; spare is a space-saver wheel and tire.)
1 Due
to low-profile tires, please note: wheels, tires and suspension parts are more susceptible to road hazard and consequential
damages. Performance tires not recommended for driving in ice and snow.
s 17 x 7.5 Star Spoke (Style 243) cast alloy
wheels with 225/50R-17 all-season tires.
s Standard equipment
o Optional equipment
o Park Distance Control uses eight sensors
– four in the front, four in the rear – to help you
judge how close you are to other cars and
unseen objects when parking. While engaged
in a parking maneuver, the image on the screen
visually changes and warning beeps come
faster as the bumper approaches a stationary
object, turning into a constant tone when the
distance is less than 12 inches.
o Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go
uses radar measurements to automatically maintain a preset speed and distance
between your vehicle and the one ahead
in both heavy traffic and highway driving.2
(Requires automatic transmission.)
2 Active
Cruise Control is not a substitute for the driver’s own
responsibility in adjusting speed and otherwise controlling
the vehicle. After evaluating road, traffic and visibility conditions,
the driver decides whether and how the system is used.
s BMW Assist™ and Bluetooth® system
offers hands-free calling through your BMWapproved Bluetooth phone. The BMW Assist
Safety Plan includes Automatic Collision
Notification, Emergency Request, TeleService
and more. The optional Convenience Plan
includes Directions and Weather information,
Critical Calling and Concierge service.
s Two-piece Panoramic moonroof features
fully electric slide and lift control. Both halves
of the roof can be tilted up at the touch of a
button. When you tilt the front glass section,
the rear section also tilts up electronically.
When open, the wind deflector minimizes
turbulence. Includes comfort opening/closing
function, and an electric sunshade to help
shield cabin from excessive heat.
o 20-way power multi-contour front seats4 for the driver and front passenger provide
optimum lateral support during tight cornering – thanks to specially padded, highly contoured
side bolsters – while remaining exceptionally comfortable when driving over long distances.
In addition to active head restraints, the seats offer individual power adjustment for backrest
and seat-bottom angle; forward/backward and up/down position; thigh, upper back and lumbar
support; and adjustable sides.
4 Multi-contour seats
are included in the Sport Package and available as a stand-alone option. Requires optional Dakota Leather
upholstery or Premium Package.
o Comfort Access system offers an even
greater degree of convenience: keyless
access to your car. Simply carrying the
remote key in a pocket allows you to unlock
the doors by touching the door handle.
You can also turn the engine on or off by
pressing the Start/Stop button5 without
inserting the remote key.
5 Foot
must be on brake, or with manual transmission, brake and
clutch must be depressed, in order to start.
s Standard equipment
o Optional equipment
s 3-spoke leather-wrapped multi-function
steering wheel lets you keep both hands on
the wheel while adjusting various comfort
functions, such as changing the radio, CD
selections and volume. Optional Voice Control
(included with optional Navigation system) can
be used to change radio stations and audio
selection, Navigation system destinations, and
Bluetooth® (if so equipped) telephone entries.
o Lane Departure Warning feature1 alerts
the driver by discreetly vibrating the steering
wheel if the vehicle crosses lane markings
without using the directional signal. (requires
Premium Package)
1 Requires clearly definable lane markings that are not obscured
by rain, snow, etc. Lane Departure Warning feature is not a
substitute for the driver’s own responsibility in maintaining safe
control of the vehicle.
o Navigation system covers the U.S. with a
single DVD. The glare-free monitor is mounted
neatly into the dashboard for easy viewing.
Using GPS satellites and DVD technology, a
map of your area appears on the dash monitor,
showing – and telling – the directions to your
desired destination. It also provides Real Time
Traffic Information on potential traffic problems
and solutions.
o Head-up Display projects important travel
information, such as current speed, on the
windshield directly in the driver’s line of vision.
Directional arrows from the Navigation system,
Check Control data, and optional cruise control
functions can also be displayed. (note: Head-up
Display not available with green band windshield; requires Navigation system)
s 6-speed manual transmission delivers
a precise, athletic feel. Its responsiveness is
due, in part, to the enhanced synchronization
of shifts from neutral to each gear. A shortened shift lever and “throw” add to the sporty
feel of the gearbox. The sixth gear drops revs
at highway speeds for smooth cruising.
o Heated rear seats are a welcome coolweather feature for left and right rear-seat
occupants. With the touch of a button,
passengers can individually select their
preferred level of warmth. (Must be ordered
with Cold Weather Package; not available with
Leatherette upholstery.)
o Sunshades in the rear side windows
enhance passenger privacy, while reducing
sun glare and interior heat.
s Standard equipment
o Optional equipment
o HD Radio™ receives free, digital AM/FM
broadcasts across the U.S. in clear, staticfree quality sound – AM sounds like FM; FM
sounds like CD. Also enjoy new “multicast”
FM stations, as well as a variety of innovative
data services.
Can be ordered in combination with optional Logic7
Surround Sound audio system. For more information
on HD Radio receivers and to find HD Radio AM/FM
stations near you, visit HDRadio.com.
o SIRIUS Satellite Radio delivers nonstop
sports, news/talk, entertainment, traffic/
weather, and 100% commercial-free music –
all day, all night, across the continental U.S.
(Optional on all models; factory pre-wiring for
installation is standard.)
s BMW anti-theft AM/FM stereo CD/MP3
player audio system with 10 speakers,
Auto-Store, and 3-channel FM diversity
antenna system. Pre-wired for (accessory)
BMW six-disc CD player/changer.
o Logic7 Surround Sound anti-theft AM/FM
stereo CD/MP3 player audio system provides
outstanding sound with 13 speakers and the
adjustable surround sound function to create
a luxurious soundscape all around you. The
subwoofer speakers, located under the front
seats, produce an authentic bass sound.
s Auxiliary input port lets you connect an
external audio source, such as an iPod® or
MP3 player.
o iPod and USB adaptor let you scroll
through and select the music you want by
using the vehicle’s radio controls, the multifunction steering wheel buttons or iDrive
Controller. Music titles are displayed on the
radio or Navigation screen.
Premium Package: Maximize your driving satisfaction with amenities that provide added comfort
and luxury. The 535xi Sports Wagon Premium Package offers supple Dakota Leather seating.
For nighttime driving, the automatic-dimming rear-view (interior) and side-view (exterior) mirrors
adjust to reduce glare. The Universal garage-door opener offers the convenience of three
remote-control functions outside the vehicle, such as opening electronically activated garage
doors, or activating home-lighting systems.
Automatic tailgate opener lets you open
the tailgate at the touch of a button while
sitting comfortably inside. When picking up
passengers with luggage, bags, etc., this
handy feature lets them access the cargo area
without your having to get out of the vehicle –
something you’ll appreciate on rainy days.
Exterior power-folding side-view mirrors automatically dim when reflecting bright lights, helping to eliminate glare when driving at night.
Automatic-dimming rear-view mirror
senses the bright headlights of vehicles
behind you, and automatically darkens.
BMW Universal garage-door opener takes the place of up to three remote-control devices.
It can activate remote functions outside the vehicle, such as garage-door openers or homelighting systems.
Dakota Leather upholstery cradles driver and passengers in soft, gathered comfort. Durable and easy to maintain, a leather interior adds elegance
and refinement. (Cream Beige Dakota Leather with Dark Poplar Wood interior trim shown)
Cold Weather Package: Enjoy winter to the fullest with the Cold Weather Package. There’s
nothing like the feel of quick-warming seats and a heated steering wheel on a cold morning.
At night and in inclement weather, you’ll see and be seen better, thanks to the high-intensity
headlight cleaning system. And the addition of a ski bag provides a practical and convenient
method for transporting your skis or other long objects by keeping them clean and secure.
Retractable high-intensity headlight
washers help keep lights clear of ice, mud,
road salt and other coatings, for maximum
road lighting and enhanced driving safety.
Ski bag allows clean and secure transport of
up to four pairs of skis and ski poles. When not
extended for use, the ski bag can be stored in
the seat, and the center armrest can be left
down for use, or folded up to create a third
seat.
Heated steering wheel makes gloves unnecessary for cold weather driving. A flick of the switch
quickly warms the steering wheel to the perfect temperature.
Heated front seats are a welcome feature for
driver and front passenger in cooler weather.
With the touch of a button, seat surface and
backrest are heated and quickly radiate
comfortable warmth in your choice of three
settings. (Heated front seats are also available
as a stand-alone option; not available with
Leatherette upholstery.)
Sport Package1: The 535xi adds a dynamic edge to the Sports Wagon’s look and performance,
thanks to shadowline exterior trim, a three-spoke leather-wrapped multi-function sport steering
wheel, and 20-way power multi-contour front seats. When selecting the 535xi Sport Package,
larger 18 x 8.0 Star Spoke (Style 124) cast alloy wheels with 245/40R-18 run-flat performance
tires2 are available as an option.
1 Sport Package requires optional Leather upholstery or Premium Package.
2 Due to low-profile tires, please note: wheels, tires and suspension parts are more susceptible to road hazard and consequential damages.
Performance tires not recommended for driving in ice and snow. Spare is a space-saver wheel and tire.
Shadowline trim gives a sporty look to front
and rear side-window frames, window recess
finishers, and door-sill trim strips.
20-way power multi-contour front seats1
provide optimum lateral support during tight
cornering, while remaining exceptionally
comfortable when driving over long distances.
In addition to active head restraints, the seats
offer individual power adjustment for backrest
and seat-bottom angle; forward/backward and
up/down position; thigh, upper back and lumbar
support; and adjustable sides.
1 Multi-contour seats are also available as a stand-alone option, and
require optional Dakota Leather upholstery or Premium Package.
3-spoke leather-wrapped multi-function sport steering wheel lets you keep both hands
on the wheel while adjusting various comfort functions, such as radio stations, CD selections
and volume.

BMW and the environment.
BMW is a strong proponent of the environment and social responsibility. It is important to manage the
earth’s resources responsibly, and not jeopardize the needs of future generations. That is why BMW makes
vehicles that minimize adverse environmental impact, from production (pollution prevention and waste
minimization at the plant) through owner use (low emissions) to eventual disposal (easy drainability of all
fluid-related components and easy neutralization of all pyrotechnic devices).
This effort has been recognized worldwide and, as a result, we are pleased to have received numerous
environmental honors. In the U.S., for example, the Environmental Protection Agency accepted BMW’s
