s Standard equipment
o Optional equipment
s/o Xenon Adaptive Headlights1 provide brilliant clarity of the road ahead and to the side at night and in conditions with poor visibility. The
dynamic auto-leveling feature adjusts for varying passenger and cargo loads, helping to keep headlight glare out of the eyes of oncoming drivers.
BMW Adaptive Headlights1 provide optimum road illumination around corners, thanks to an electromechanical control system that directs the
headlights into and through the bend as soon as the vehicle begins cornering.
o High-beam Assistant2 automatically turns high beams on and off, as needed, based on light sensor readings.
1 Std. 535i/535xi and 550i; opt. on 528i/528xi.
2 Optional; requires optional Xenon headlights and Premium Package in 528i and 528xi;
requires Premium Package in 535i and 535xi.
s Adaptive Brake Lights increase vehicle
visibility and signal the intensity of your
braking action.
s Redesigned taillights add fresh, dramatic
flair with raised horizontal ribbing and restyled
white reverse lights.
s Two-way power glass moonroof with
remote, expanded one-touch operation, slides
forward or tilts up to let in as much fresh air
and sky as you like, while a wind deflector
helps keep the wind out. Includes a sliding
interior sunshade.

3 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 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
selections, Navigation system destinations,
and Bluetooth-compatible telephone entries.
s/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. (std. in 550i)
o Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go uses
radar measurements to automatically maintain a pre-set speed and distance between
your vehicle and the one ahead in both heavy
traffic and highway driving.1 (requires automatic or Sport Automatic transmission)
o 6-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission provides a choice of three modes:
“Drive,” which incorporates BMW’s Adaptive
Transmission Control; “Sport” automatic, for
a more dynamic shift pattern; and STEPTRONIC
automatic, for the hands-on control of a
manual without using a clutch. (no-cost option
in all 5 Series Sedans)
o Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters
allow you to shift gears manually without a
clutch. This feature is included in the 535i
and 550i when they are equipped with the
optional 6-speed Sport Automatic transmission and Sport Package.
s BMW Assist™2 and Bluetooth® system
offers hands-free calling through your BMWapproved Bluetooth phone. The BMW Assist
Safety Plan includes Automatic Collision
Notification, Emergency Request, Enhanced
Roadside Assistance, TeleService and more.
Also available is an optional Convenience
Plan with Directions and Weather information,
Critical Calling and Concierge service.
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 button3 without
inserting the remote key.
1 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 determines whether and how the system is used.
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.
3 Foot
must be on brake; with manual transmission, brake and
clutch must be depressed in order to start.
s Standard equipment
o Optional equipment
o Lane Departure Warning feature4 alerts
the driver by discreetly vibrating the steering
wheel if the vehicle crosses lane markings
without using the directional signal. (requires
Premium Package in 528i, 528xi, 535i and
535xi)
4 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 (where available) 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 cruise control functions can also be displayed. (note: Head-up
Display not available with green band
windshield; requires Navigation system)
o 20-way power multi-contour front seats5
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.
5 Multi-contour seats
are included in the Sport Package and
available as a stand-alone option. The 528i, 528xi, 535i and
535xi Sport Packages require optional Leather upholstery or
Premium Package.

occupants. With the touch of a button,
passengers can individually select their
preferred level of warmth. (Must be ordered

or both rear seats, as needed.

Weather Package. There’s nothing like the
feeling of a quick-warming seat and a heated
steering wheel on a cold morning, plus the
reassurance of clean, bright headlights on a
stormy night.

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
Spartanburg, SC production and manufacturing facility as a charter member of the agency’s National
Environmental Performance Track. Internationally, BMW AG – the parent company of both BMW of
North America and BMW Manufacturing Co., Spartanburg, SC – was the first automotive company to
be represented on the Dow Jones Sustainability Group Index, and has remained on the Index ever since.
At BMW, we strive for high performance in everything we do.
