Introduction
The BMW M family has been enhanced with the addition of the E70 M and E71 M. The
BMW X5 M and X6 M were launched on to the US market in September of the 2009.
The then BMW “Motorsport” was established in 1972 with the legendary M1. For over
30 years today’s BMW M GmbH has been developing BMW M vehicles with a motorsport pedigree based on the standard production models.
To date, the BMW 3 Series, Z Series, 5 Series and the 6 Series have been crowned with
at least one M model. With the BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M, for the first time, X Series
models will join this elite list of M performance vehicles.
These models are the first M cars to be equipped with the M TwinPower turbo engine
and the M Sport automatic transmission as well as xDrive, Dynamic Performance
Control, Dynamic Drive and run flat tires.

The X5 M and X6 M are the benchmark in terms of dynamics, agility and emotion in the
High Performance Sports Activity Vehicle/Sports Activity Coupe class.
Characteristic features of the E70/E71 M:
• The overall body design concept of the series production vehicle was aerodynamically perfected to meet the M specific characteristics.
• The engine and transmission combination delivers even more power and spontaneous linear performance, with two engine dynamics control programs (power and
economy). The M specific gearshift characteristics (without Drive Logic program)
produce fast and precise gear changes.
• Distinctly sporty engine sound, both in the lower and in the higher engine speed
ranges.
• The M Servotronic steering is taut, direct and precise. The M steering wheel with
M shift paddles and M mode button are standard equipment.
• The chassis and suspension where especially setup to develop a sporty stiff suspension but without excessively hard rolling characteristics, even in sport mode.
The result is an optimized interaction of the steering, suspension and damping that
enhances vehicle handling.
• M Dynamic Mode (MDM) is installed instead of Dynamic Traction Control (DTC).
Rear end-orientated xDrive setup is defaulted to when driving enthusiastically in
MDM and DSC-OFF mode.
• The M seats with high quality upholstery in BMW Merino leather offer optimum
seat comfort.
• BMW Merino leather, M instrument cluster, M drive menu, M head-up display,
M seat, M specific trim strips, M foot rests and sill panel trim all add to the interior
ergonomics of these vehicles.
BMW Efficient Dynamics measures:
• High Precision Injection (gasoline direct fuel injection).
• Automatic transmission with optimized torque converter lockup clutch
(Double- Damper) and increased efficiency by early up-shifting the transmission
in the "Efficient" program.
• Dynamic Drive (QMVH) with hydraulic supply system featuring controlled
volumetric flow.
• A/C compressor with magnetic clutch.
• Fuel pump with requirement-orientated (PWM) control.

Cooling Air Intake
The new air duct is identical for the E70 M and the E71 M.
A new air routing system was designed for the engine radiator and system coolers.
Multifunction air routing combines:
• the air duct for brakes,
• air duct for auxiliary radiator,
• air duct for the engine oil cooler and
• air duct for additional low temperature cooler.
Side Gills
The familiar M gills with integrated turn signal repeater and M logo are a distinctive
design feature on the left and right front fenders (similar in design to the E92 M3).
Although the lamp itself and the M logo are common parts, the design of the M gill
is different on the E70 M compared to the E71 M.
On the E70 M, the gill is integrated directly into the front fender. On the E71 M, the gill
is a separate painted trim piece with additional design elements. Unlike on the current
M5 and M3, these side M gills are non-functional air vents.

Outside Mirrors
The exterior mirrors feature an M specific contour and mirror cap. The electrochromic
exterior mirrors are heated as standard. They have a memory and fold-in function as well
as automatic curb monitor for the passenger’s side mirror. The new M design mirror caps
are painted to match the vehicle’s exterior color.
With the introduction of E70 M and E71 M the top rear side view camera (TRSVC) is
available for the first time in the US market. Option 3AH (Rear View Camera w/ Top View)
is offered as part of the ZDA Driver Assistance Package.

with the rear view camera and Park Distance Control (PDC). They can be turned on by
pressing the PDC button or are automatically turned on when the vehicle is placed in
reverse.
The top view cameras have the same
adjustment options as the rear view
camera.
Parking aid line assistance is available
for the top view camera and can be
selected from the top/rear view menu
screen (See lower left graphic).
The customer can choose between a
“three way split view” that displays left,
right and rear views in one image or
the single view by selecting just the
rear view camera image to be displayed in the CID.

E70/E71 M - S63 engine
Crankcase, Cylinder Head and Valve Timing Components
The crankcase was taken from the N63.
In view of the high ignition pressures of the S63, the pistons were upgraded accordingly.
The interior structure of the crankcase ventilation system has been adapted in terms of
the oil separator and control valve (similar to S85).
Cylinder Head
The cylinder head has been adapted to accommodate the higher thermal and mechanical loads, the modified turbochargers (ATL) and exhaust manifold as well as the increased
transverse dynamics of the vehicle.
The following changes have been made to the cylinder heads compared to the N63:
• The S63 cylinder heads are made from a higher grade alloy
• Adapted bolt pattern arrangement for the new exhaust manifold
• The exhaust camshafts are new and specific to the S63
Other changes to the top of the engine include the newly designed oil filler neck and its
new location as well as the redesigned thermostat housing.
Note: It is important to note that the rigidity of the engine mounts on the S63
has been adapted to M specific requirements.

Timing Components
E70/E71 M timing gear
The timing components have been adopted from the N63 engine.
The following changes have been made:
• The cam timing has been adapted accordingly (see Technical Data)
• The exhaust camshafts are new components, specific to the S63.
21
E70/E71 M Complete Vehicle
www.bmwcoders.com - your #1 BMW information source!!!
Exhaust System
Exhaust Manifold
On the N63, a single-flow, cast exhaust manifold per cylinder bank is assigned to each
exhaust turbocharger (cyl. 1–4 and cyl. 5–8).
The S63 is fitted with a four-flow, air gap insulated tuned pulse exhaust manifold that
connects both cylinder banks. In an ideal configuration, the exhaust gas pulses from
cylinders 1/6 and 4/7 are fed to the turbocharger installed over the right bank (cyl.1-4)
and the exhaust gas pulses from cylinders 2/8 and 3/5 are fed to the turbocharger
installed over the left bank (cyl. 5-8).
This design creates a spacing of 360° of crankshaft angle between the two exhaust
cycles within the exhaust flute that feeds each twin scroll turbocharger turbine. The effective utilization of the exhaust gas energy delivers optimum de-throttling, ideal response
characteristics and minimizes turbo lag.
Corrugated pipes combined with sliding seat flanges connect the exhaust ports from
both banks within the center of the manifold outer shell to compensate for thermomechanical expansion and contraction. (See below)
E70/E71 M tuned pulse exhaust manifold sequence explained
22
E70/E71 M Complete Vehicle
www.bmwcoders.com - your #1 BMW information source!!!
The specially designed exhaust manifold connects each of the 8 cylinders in sequence
according to the exhaust pulses in the firing order. This delivers a uniform flow of exhaust
gas to the turbochargers which improves volumetric efficiency by promoting cylinder
scavenging.
Every 180° of crankshaft rotation, one exhaust gas pulse is fed to each turbocharger over
the entire ignition sequence (1–5–4–8–6–3–7–2).
This highly efficient charging concept achieves optimum energy transmission of the
exhaust flow to the turbine blades of the turbochargers. The result is the fastest and
most direct response characteristics of any turbo engine worldwide. The innovative
technology is patented by BMW and therefore represents a unique selling point over
the competition.
Cut away view of E70/E71 M exhaust manifold and twin scroll turbo.
Advantages of the Twin-scroll Turbo System
The response characteristics of the exhaust turbochargers are enhanced when compared
to the N63. The S63 turbocharger turbines are fed through two separate channels within
the turbine housing (highlighted red in the graphic above). Each of these channels or
“scrolls” is always fed by the exhaust pulses from the same two cylinders.
The layout and cross sections of the turbine impeller and compressor wheels have been
correspondingly adapted and are designed for the maximum exhaust inlet operating temperature of 1020° C (1868° F).
The diverter valves are now integrated in the charge air line and have a hose connection
to the turbocharger compressor inlet side (See the graphic on the next page).
Catalytic converters and oxygen sensors are the same as in the N63 with the cable routing of the oxygen sensors adapted accordingly to the new engine.

Air Intake System
Intake Silencer (AGD)
To enhance air flow to the engine while taking
pedestrian protection into consideration, the
intake silencer has been redesigned and fixed
to the body directly in front of the engine (on
N63 its fixed to the engine).
Two activated carbon filters prevent pollutants
(that could stem from the engine) from entering the intake system when the engine is not
in operation, complying with corresponding
emission requirements.
US models use an intake silencer with an
integrated snow valve and additional activated
carbon filter mesh.
Snow Valve
The snow valve is a filter bypass valve that is opened by engine vacuum. It allows continued engine operation (at greatly reduced power output) if necessary, should the air cleaner be iced up or closed off with packed snow in extreme wheather conditions.
Vacuum Supply
The vacuum pump has been adopted from the N63. The two plastic vacuum accumulators each with a volume of 0.3 l are new and are located under the engine cover (N63
uses one accumulator designed as a metal cylinder under the turbochargers).
26
E70/E71 M Complete Vehicle

Cooling Systems
As in the series production X6 (xDrive50i) the X5/X6 M have two cooling systems, the
main engine cooling system and a low temperature cooling system dedicated to intake
charge air cooling (turbo intercooling).
The following components have been adopted from the N63 and are common with
series production E71 vehicles:
• The low temperature system heat exchanger for the intercoolers
• Air conditioning condenser
• Power steering oil cooler
• The standalone auxiliary radiator
The expansion tank for the main engine cooling system was taken from the E70.
New and Adapted Cooling Components
The main coolant radiator takes up the same package space as in the E71 but has a
winglet tubing design, for increased surface area. It no longer contains the integrated low
temperature area for the transmission oil-to-coolant heat exchanger.
The engine oil cooler has been adapted to the higher engine output by increasing the
core depth from 30 mm to 45 mm.
The charge air (low temperature) cooling system has an additional intercooler heat
exchanger installed in series, a second auxiliary water pump and a new expansion tank.
The length of the engine intercoolers (LLK) has been increased from 130 mm to 160
mm. The measuring range of the boost pressure sensors at the intercooler outlet has also
increased to 4 bar.
The transmission oil heat exchanger has been adapted to the higher engine output by
increasing the number of plates from 23 to 31.

Transmission
With the M Sport automatic transmission 6HP26S the customer is able to enjoy spontaneous gearshifts and a more stable control of the torque converter lock-up clutch.
To effectively absorb rotational irregularities in the drive train and achieve the best possible reduction of the slip at the converter lock-up clutch, a double-damper torque converter is installed. A single-damper torque converter design is used in the 6HP26TU of the
E71 xDrive50i.
The spring characteristics in the double-damper converter are especially designed for the
increased power and torque of the S63 engine. The 6HP26S internal components have
also been adapted to the maximum engine speed of 6800 rpm.
The plastic transmission oil pan has been replaced with an aluminum version. The air flow
to the transmission has been enhanced and the opening point of the transmission oil
thermostat has been lowered.
The gear ratio is identical to that of the series production 6HP26TU transmission.

Launch Control
Launch control ensures optimum vehicle acceleration when starting on a road surface
with sufficient grip.
Activation is not possible if one of the preconditioning requirements is not met and if the
transmission oil temperature is too high. (See Owner’s Manual)
The alternator power output is reduced to zero when launch control is activated, in order
to further optimize power. However the A/C compressor remains active to address possible window fogging.
Note: For further information regarding E70/E71 M Launch Control refer to the
vehicle Owner’s Manual.

Steering
The M rack and pinion power steering is equipped as standard with Servotronic. It has
an overall steering ratio of 19.5:1 and 3.11 turns from lock to lock is equal to the standard
E7x series production vehicle.
The power steering pump of the E70 M is equipped with the proportional valve for electronic volumetric flow adjustment (EVV valve). The EVV valve and the Servotronic valve
are controlled directly by the ICM control unit.
Note: The oil pressure in the power steering system is minimized corresponding to the situation (e.g. driving straight ahead) by means of the EVV
valve. This feature is already known from the E71 and F01 as part of CO2
reduction measures.
Rear Axle
The rubber mounts between the body and rear axle carrier are adapted in terms of their
rigidity to M specific requirements.
Springs and Struts
New strut mounts with specially adapted internal rubber section are installed. The air
springs are new and have been adapted to the strut mount, lower vehicle height and M
specific tuning. The air springs are based on the E71 N63 EDC but with layout for M
suspension setup. The shock absorbers are also based on the E71 N63 EDC, with the
piston rod adapted to the new strut mount. Damper hardness and characteristic were
especially adapted to M requirements.
Links, Struts and Wheel Bearing Assemblies
The rigidity of the pivot link, control arm and trailing arm has been correspondingly
enhanced. All links and wheel bearings have been adopted from the series production
E71.
Brakes
The brake master cylinder has undergone slight modification to enable even sportier
response. The front and rear brakes have been enlarged compared to the current series
production X5 and X6.
Directional (Ø 395 mm/15.56”) lightweight brake rotors are fitted in the front (Geomet®coated cast iron friction surface on aluminum center hubs) with new four piston aluminum
mono block fixed callipers, painted black. The brake guard plates on the front axle have
been adapted to the larger brakes.
The rear brakes rotors are of the same design as the front (cast iron with aluminum center
hubs). They are Ø 385 x 24mm/15.2 x 0.9” and use floating calipers adopted from the X6
xDrive50i.
Note: The Geomet® coating of the rotors provides corrosion protection.

Dynamic Driving Systems
With the E70/E71 M, the handling characteristics of M vehicles are introduced for the first
time to the High Performance Sports Activity Vehicle/Sports Activity Coupe class.
Vehicle dynamics management (VDC and Dynamic Drive) and Integrated Chassis
Management (Dynamic Performance Control and Servotronic) are installed as standard.
This makes the E70 M the first BMW X5 with Integrated Chassis Management and
Dynamic Performance Control.
Although Active Steering is not offered, both vehicles feature M rack and pinion power
steering systems with Servotronic.
The M specific driving dynamics (longitudinal, transverse and vertical) were tuned on the
North loop of the Nürburgring race track with the main focus on handling and lap times.
Vertical Dynamics Management
Vertical dynamics control (VDC) and active roll stabilization (ARS) have been functionally
combined to create vertical dynamics management. This was first introduced in the E70
with the marketing designation Adaptive Drive.
The VDC function integrated in the vertical dynamics management control unit (VDM)
controls the adjustable dampers. As an expansion to the EDC-K system, the transverse
acceleration is now included as an input signal together with the ride height, longitudinal
and vertical acceleration. The VDM control unit coordinates the functions between the
VDC and ARS, i.e. between damper and stabilizer bar control.
As a CO2 reduction measure when driving in a straight line, the fluid flow rate of the ARS
radial piston pump is restricted by the intake restrictor valve on the intake side of the circuit, thereby substantially reducing the circulation pressure and, therefore, the engine
power used to drive the pump. The VDM operates the intake restrictor valve lowering
ARS system pressure when ARS is not needed.
Adaptive Drive is installed as standard in the E70 M and E71 M. The integration of these
systems in connection with M specific tuning ensures a maximum in terms of dynamics,
comfort and safety in this vehicle class. The agility of the vehicle has been optimized
while taking long distance driving suitability into consideration.
Vehicle handling can be enhanced for dynamic driving with the EDC button on the gear
selector lever and the DSC button on the center console. Both button functions can also
be preconfigured in the M Drive menu and selected by means of the M button on the
steering wheel.

EDC Button Selection Option
The EDC on the current M3, M5 and M6 models has three selection options "Comfort",
"Normal" and "Sport" where no dynamic control takes place in the "Sport" selection but
rather only the dampers are set extremely hard (ideal for slalom).
E70 M and E71 M feature two selection options, "Normal" and "Sport", where dynamic
control also takes place in "Sport".
EDC Normal
Although the E70/E71 M offer a distinct increase in driving dynamics compared to the
respective series production model. EDC and Servotronic have normal characteristics in
this setting. This mode offers a balanced setup that combines M characteristic dynamic
driving potential with comfort.
EDC Sport
In this mode, the suspension offers the maximum suspension stiffness and higher steering torque to deliver even greater dynamic driving performance. A sportier Servotronic
characteristic ensures optimum steering feedback.
Transverse Dynamics Management
The Integrated Chassis Management (ICM) represents the system network for controlling
transverse dynamics.
This control unit coordinates the interaction between Servotronic, Dynamic Performance
Control and DSC.
Dynamic Performance Control
The function of the torque vectoring final
drive unit (Dynamic Performance Control)
was first introduced in the E71 and is coordinated by the ICM control unit while the actuators of the Dynamic Performance Control
are controlled by the QMVH (transverse
torque distribution control unit for the rear
axle).
The main differences of the E70/ E71 M compared to the series production E71 include
the adaptation of the dynamic driving parameters as well as additional cooling measures.
The Dynamic Performance Control function can now be displayed on the CID. The current drive torque distribution applied by the Dynamic Performance Control and xDrive is
approximately represented by arrows at all four wheels. (See graphic)
M specific conventional rack and pinion steering gear with Servotronic is fitted on the
E70/E71M. The Servotronic valve is controlled by the ICM. Active Steering is not available on either of these vehicles.
38
E70/E71 M Complete Vehicle
www.bmwcoders.com - your #1 BMW information source!!!
Longitudinal Dynamics Management
Longitudinal dynamics management is a feature of the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC).
By sending information to the transfer case control unit (VTG), the DSC controls the
power distribution between the front and rear axles. Based on information sent to the
ICM, the transverse torque distribution at the rear axle is additionally influenced under
unstable vehicle conditions.
The xDrive all-wheel drive system provides permanently variable torque distribution
between the front and rear axle.
To increase driving dynamics, on the E70/E71 M more torque has been sent to the rear
wheels. The transferred drive torque to the front axle is less and distinctly delayed when
compared to the E70 and E71, especially in M Dynamic and DSC OFF mode.
The understeer tendency of the all-wheel drive is greatly reduced especially while driving
out of corners. This means that power can be applied earlier and higher speeds can be
achieved.
M Dynamic Mode (MDM) and DSC OFF Mode
In M Dynamic mode (MDM), the typical self-steering M vehicle characteristic response is
achieved by:
• the extended control thresholds for brake intervention,
• the distinctly later engine power reduction by ASC and
• the rear end emphasized xDrive setup together with Dynamic Performance Control.
Even at full power at the apex of a bend, the E70 M and E71 M follow the steering line
and the vehicles can be steered with the accelerator pedal.
Maximum cornering speeds can be achieved in active MDM mode while retaining driving
safety. The setup of the xDrive and Dynamic Performance Control is correspondingly
adapted in this mode. Brake interventions only take place in extreme driving situations in
connection with high transverse acceleration. Engine power output is not reduced as the
result of wheel slip.
It is possible to change between DSC ON, MDM and DSC OFF by means of the DSC
button or the configuration in the M Drive menu.
With DSC OFF a check control message will be displayed on the instrument panel and
on the HUD. In this case MDM and DSC are simultaneously deactivated thus the stabilizing interventions are now not carried out. (See Vehicle Owner’s Manual for more information.)
CAUTION!!!
To maintain vehicle stability drive with DSC switched ON
and M Dynamic Mode switched OFF whenever possible.

The following differences between the electrical systems of the series production
E7x vehicles compared to the E70/E71 M must be noted:
PT-CAN:
The S63 is exclusively equipped with the DME MSD85.1.
The control unit for active steering (AL) has been dropped as active steering is not
offered for the E70/E71 M vehicles. However all other control units (DSC, ICM, QMVH,
VDM and ARS) are installed because E70 M and E71 M are equipped with Adaptive
Drive, Dynamic Performance Control and Integrated Electronic Height Control as standard equipment.
K-CAN:
The PDC function has been integrated in the junction box as on F01.
The control unit for the optional auxiliary heating control for the 3rd row of seats (ZHS3R)
has been dropped as this option is not offered for the E70 M.
TRSVC top rear side view camera (option) is installed for the first time on US E7x vehicles
MOST:
As from10/09 the CIC is also installed in the series production E70 and E71 vehicles and
there is no difference in the vehicle electrical system of the E70/E71 M vehicles compared to the series production E71 models.
CIC Basic uses a smaller screen and refers to the CIC option without Navigation
The functions of the CCC/MASK/CHAMP, IBOC, SDARS are all integrated in the CIC.
These control units are therefore no longer installed in the vehicle.

Car Information Computer (CIC)
The Car Information Computer was introduced in the BMW 1 Series and 3 Series during
the second half of 2008. All other model series then followed except for the E7x models.
As part of the 10/2009 model year updates the CIC is now also offered on E7x vehicles.
The E70/E71 M are the first X models to be launched with the Car Information Computer
(CIC) including the M Drive menu. The CIC represents a consistent progression of the
route laid down by the Car Communication Computer (CCC).
The main feature of the iDrive operating concept is the newly designed controller which
now features short cut buttons. In addition, the complete layout of the user interface has
been changed. Compared to the CCC, the number of drives in the CIC has been
reduced to one DVD player.

The navigation system of the CIC has been enhanced with many additional functions.
Examples include full screen mode, night view and the 3D models in the perspective map
view. This was realized by means of a hard disk that is capable of storing map data.
Formerly, the map data had to be read separately from a DVD for each destination entry.
The hard disk in the CIC also makes it possible to create a play list for music data and a
music track database (Gracenote®) to facilitate searching for music. A USB connection is
provided and located in the glove compartment to import and export/back up data.
Several external receivers (e.g. IBOC, SDARS) and their functions have been realized in
the CIC either by way of hardware or software, thus greatly expanding its functionality.
An address database has been created in the "Contacts" submenu which can be
accessed also from the telephone and navigation menu.
This innovation offers a wide range of options for future models. The communication
service BMW Assist has been adapted to the new layout of the user interface and many
additional services have been added (e.g. BMW Search and My Info [Google send to
car]). The voice recognition system has been further developed to ensure voice input
takes place even more smoothly.
The innovations introduced to the CIC system at the launch of the E7x models are listed
in the following pages.
Note: For more information refer to the (CIC) Car Information Computer training
material or the F01 Audio Systems training material available on TIS and
ICP.
