lightweight technology is borne out among other things by chassis components as well as the engine lid, front side panels and doors all made of aluminium.
The new BMW 5 Series Sedan is entering the market with one eightcylinder and three six-cylinder petrol engines as well as two six-cylinder diesels. The top model is the BMW 550i powered by a V8 with BMW TwinPower Turbo featuring High Precision Injection (300 kW/407 hp). Then there are the worlds first straight-six petrol engine with TwinPower Turbo, High Precision Injection and VALVETRONIC (225 kW/306 hp) in the BMW 535i as well as two straight-six petrol engines with High Precision Injection and lean-burn technology in the BMW 528i (190 kW/258 hp) and the BMW 523i (150 kW/204 hp).
The latest generation of straight-six diesels featuring an all-aluminium crankcase and common-rail direct injection develop 180 kW/245 hp in the BMW 530d and 150 kW/204 hp in the BMW 525d. Due to supplement the model range in the near future, the new BMW 520d comes with a thoroughly upgraded 135 kW/184 hp four-cylinder diesel and features Auto Start Stop as standard. Offering average fuel consumption of just 5.0 litres/100 km (equal to 56.5 mpg imp) in the EU test cycle and a CO2 emission rating of 132 g/km, this high-tech power unit sets a new benchmark in its segment.
BMW Media Information 11/2009 Page 15
Ample storage space, high-quality materials, attractive colour combinations. Travel comfort within the new BMW 5 Series Sedan is further enhanced by a wide range of ergonomically and ideally positioned storage options, boxes and cupholders. In addition to the spacious glove compartment, a fold-in box on the drivers side of the instrument panel offers further space and convenience. The centre console comes in two variants: On cars with a manual gearbox the console is split into two sections, the black surface surrounding the gearshift lever and the buttons on the optional Dynamic Driving Control opening up towards the driver. A storage box between the gearshift lever and the a/c controls serves to conveniently take up the key to the car. On models with automatic transmission, on the other hand, the centre console forms one complete and highly elegant surface, the space between the electronic gear selector lever and the climate control unit offering enough room for two cupholders and a key box, with a further storage box behind the iDrive Controller (where there is another cupholder on models with a manual gearbox). In this case the second cupholder on automatic transmission models comes in the storage compartment beneath the armrest. The armrest on the centre console opens up smoothly and conveniently with butterfly flaps extending back in a vertical line, revealing not only the USB, Aux-In and power connections, but also a very convenient and practical storage compartment. High-quality materials and superior finish in top craftsmanship underline the premium ambience of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan. A wide range of colour and upholstery variants, in turn, offers more than ample freedom in customising the car to the driver and passengers. Visible seams on the leather seats, door handles and panels serve to additionally emphasise the flowing lines of the interior. Right from the start upon its introduction, the new BMW 5 Series Sedan comes with a choice of no less than seven paintwork colours. Within the interior there are three upholstery variants in up to five colours each, three interior colours and five types of interior trim for individual and highly versatile combinations.

Four-cylinder diesel: power up, leadership in efficiency even greater than before. The engine range featured in the new BMW 5 Series is rounded off by an upgraded turbodiesel setting new records in terms of efficiency in this segment of the market. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel in the new BMW 520d combines a composite aluminium crankcase, the latest generation of common-rail direct fuel injection and a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry. The increase in power and efficiency over the former model ensured in this way results from consistent optimisation of the combustion chambers, the charge system and the cylinder head, as well as the new arrangement of the ancillary units helping to reduce frictional losses to an even lower level than before. Thermodynamically optimised, the charge system in the four-cylinder diesel engine ensures an optimum flow of power at all speeds and under all loads. An electric adjuster sets the turbine blades in the turbocharger to the current load status of the engine within fractions of a second, the engine thus following the gas pedal immediately both at low speeds and under full load, whenever the driver requires maximum power and performance. The fuel injection system with magnetic valve injectors operating at a pressure of up to 1,800 bars ensures precise dosage of fuel as well as a consistent, lowemission combustion process. Maximum power of the four-cylinder is up 5 kW to 135 kW/184 hp at an engine speed of 4,000 rpm. Up by 30 to 380 Newton-metres or 280 lb-ft, maximum torque comes all the way from 1,900 to 2,750 rpm. This accelerates the new BMW 520d to 100 km/h within just 8.1 seconds and gives the car a top speed of 227 km/h or 141 mph (provisional figures). Average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle of 5.0 litres/100 kilometres (equal to 56.5 mpg imp) and a CO2 rating of 132 grams per kilometre (provisional) give the BMW 520d even greater leadership than before as the most efficient car in its segment. Optimised six-speed manual gearbox with dry sump lubrication featured as standard. Innovative technology ensures enhanced driving pleasure and optimised efficiency also in transmitting the power of the engine to the rear wheels of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan. Benefiting from dry sump lubrication, the six-speed manual gearbox on the BMW 535i, BMW 525d and BMW 520d has significantly lower drag losses and avoids oil splash losses completely in the interest of even greater efficiency.
BMW Media Information 11/2009 Page 21
The new BMW 530d and the BMW 528i and BMW 523i likewise come with new versions of the six-speed manual gearbox optimised for efficiency with conventional oil supply. The gearshift lever re-designed on all models and the shift bars again upgraded in their standard allow a smooth gearshift with optimum precision and steady shift forces, bringing out the sporting quality of the manual gearshift so typical of BMW to an even greater extent than before. Significant innovation with unique efficiency: eight-speed automatic transmission. The BMW 550i comes as standard with the new eight-speed automatic transmission featured for the first time in the BMW 760i twelve-cylinder Luxury Performance Sedan, which is also available as an option for all other variants of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan. When fitted, this makes the new BMW 520d the first car in the world to combine a four-cylinder power unit with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This innovative transmission offers a unique combination of gearshift comfort, sportiness and efficiency at a standard never seen before, far superior in every respect to the automatic transmissions and double-clutch gearboxes from the competition. As yet a further option the new BMW 5 Series Sedan is also available with a Sport Automatic variant of the eight-speed transmission allowing manual selection of gears by means of shift paddles on the steering wheel. The control logic applied in this case follows the principle already featured on BMW M Cars, the driver shifting up on the right and down on the left paddle. A further feature of the Sport Automatic is the special design of the electronic gearshift lever on the centre console. The eight-speed automatic transmission boasts a particularly innovative gearset configuration, four single gearsets and five shift units interacting to provide the eight forward gears and one reverse gear. The arrangement of these components to be seen here worldwide for the first time on an eight-speed automatic transmission ensures that only two of five clutches are moved along open in each gear, significantly reducing drag losses in comparison with the automatic transmissions currently in the market. With the number of gears being increased to eight, gear increments when shifting are smaller than before despite the greater range between the lowest and highest transmission ratio. While accelerating, the harmonious shift in transmission ratios ensures a particularly smooth and steady increase
BMW Media Information 11/2009 Page 24
with a steady steering angle, on the other hand, the consumption of energy is reduced to zero. Precise, smooth and harmonious set-up of the steering with the feedback typical of BMW ensures maximum steering accuracy at all times. In the Sport mode of Dynamic Drive Control and with DSC switched off, the degree of steering forces is slightly increased in accordance with the style of motoring desired. EPS serves to control steering feedback from the system with particular precision. At the same time EPS comes as standard on the new BMW 5 Series Sedan with Servotronic gearing steering assistance to the speed of the car. When parking and steering at low speeds, for example, the driver hardly has to make any effort, while at higher speeds power assistance is intentionally reduced for optimum contact to the road and in the interest of well-balanced directional stability. A further point is that EPS eliminates bumps coming from the steering and any other adverse vibrations very effectively. And by evaluating dynamic driving signals in an appropriate process, EPS gives the driver authentic steering feedback particularly under very dynamic driving conditions. Integral Active Steering: greater agility in town, enhanced comfort in a quick lane change. Available as an option, Integral Active Steering is another innovation exclusive to the new BMW 5 Series Sedan in the upper midrange segment. IAS combines the Active Steering on the front wheels already available on the former model with rear-axle steering, the steering angle and steering assistance therefore being controlled for the first time both front and rear by electric motors. On models fitted with Integral Active Steering, steering forces are controlled by Servotronic and the steering angle is masterminded by an additional active steering transmission acting on the front axle, in each case as a function of road speed. At the same time the system also varies the steering angle of the rear wheels through a concentrically arranged motor acting through spindle drive on the rear axle. Both front and rear, Integral Active Steering adjusts the steering angle through an electric motor masterminded by a control unit receiving data on wheel rotation speed, movement of the steering wheel, the yaw rate and lateral acceleration to ensure optimum steering behaviour under all conditions.

low engine speeds, all act together to considerably reduce fuel consumption versus the former six-speed automatic transmission. Even this is not all: In combination with the eight-speed automatic transmission, the six-cylinder models offer the same or even lower consumption figures and CO2 ratings than their counterparts with manual gearbox. As an example, average fuel consumption of the new BMW 530d with manual gearbox in the EU test cycle is 6.3 litres/100 km or 44.8 mpg imp, average fuel consumption of the same model with eight-speed automatic transmission is 6.2 litres/100km or 45.6 mpg imp. Intelligent lightweight construction of even greater fuel economy. Appropriate choice of the right materials helps to optimise weight also on the new BMW 5 Series Sedan, enhancing both the agility of the car as well as its fuel economy and emission rating. This optimisation of weight comes together with a further increase in passive safety and is ensured in particular through the appropriate use of high-strength multi-phase steel, ultra-high-strength hot-moulded steel, and aluminium. The large share of high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel gives the safety passenger cell of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan maximum stiffness and stability without the additional use of material. With optimised weight, the positive properties of the steel used allow an increase in mean body strength and stiffness by 55 per cent over the former model. The standard of lightweight construction quality defining the torsional stiffness of the vehicle as a function of its footprint and weight has also been significantly improved. Spring supports made of pressure-cast aluminium enhance the driving dynamics of the new BMW 5 Series in two respects, making the entire front section even stiffer and, through their low weight, further improving the overall balance of the car. For the first time the doors of the BMW 5 Series Sedan are made of aluminium, reducing weight by approximately 23 kg or 50 lb versus a conventional structure. The front side panels, the engine compartment lid and a large number of the front and rear axle components are also made of this particularly light metal.
BMW Media Information 11/2009 Page 41
Lane Change Warning monitoring traffic approaching from behind. Optional Lane Change Warning in the new BMW 5 Series warns the driver of potentially critical situations when overtaking. Using two radar sensors at the rear end of the car, the system monitors traffic conditions on the adjacent lanes, covering an area extending from the blind angle on the next lane all the way back about 60 metres or almost 200 feet. A triangular yellow light symbol integrated in the housing of the drivers exterior mirror shows the driver that a vehicle is in the critical range, requiring him to check out the situation carefully. Should the driver set the direction indicator nevertheless, indicating that he is about to change lanes, the LED signal in the light will warn him by flashing on and off. He will also be warned by discreet but unmistakable vibration of the steering wheel. Lane Departure Warning: camera-based system warning the driver from unintended lane departure even in the dark. Likewise available as an option, Lane Departure Warning detects unintended departure from the appropriate lane at a speed of at least 70 km/h or 43 mph. This system is made up of a camera fitted near the interior mirror on the windscreen, a control unit for comparing data, and a signal generator making the steering wheel vibrate as in the case of a Lane Change Warning. Lane Departure Warning operates as a function of road speed. At high speeds the system interacts quickly as soon as the car draws close to the side of the road. It does not send out a warning signal, however, if the driver has indicated his intention to change lanes or direction by setting the direction indicator. The camera incorporated in the Lane Departure Warning system monitors the road markings on at least one side of the car, a control unit calculating the position of the vehicle in relation to such road markings. The camera is able to look ahead about 50 metres or 165 feet, and is also able to respond appropriately in bends or on narrow lanes. The system even works in the dark once the headlights have been switched on, making it very helpful under very many everyday driving conditions. Speed Limit Info and Speed Limit Device. The camera fitted in the interior mirror also allows the installation of another driver assistance system for extra comfort on the road: Combined with the Professional navigation system, Speed Limit Info helps the driver to keep informed on the speed limit on the route he is currently taking. To provide this function the camera permanently monitors both the signs along the road
BMW Media Information 11/2009 Page 47
The driver is able to take in and use this information without re-focusing his line of vision or taking his eyes off the road. The intensity of this projection is automatically adjusted to surrounding light conditions, with the additional option to adjust the level of brightness through the iDrive menu. The driver is also able to choose the information he would like to receive on the windscreen in addition to road speed and warnings from the driver assistance systems. Depending on the level of equipment in the car, such additional information may be High Guiding data from the navigation system as well as information from the Speed Limit Info, Check/Control as well as status reports from the Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go, the collision warning unit and Lane Departure Warning. The information selected is presented exclusively on the Head-Up Display when activated, and no longer in the instrument cluster. Given the sheer number and diversity of driver assistance systems available in the new BMW 5 Series Sedan, the range of information available on the Head-Up Display reaches a standard and level of perfection never seen before. BMW iDrive with direct selection and favourite buttons. The new BMW 5 Series comes as standard with the BMW iDrive control system operating all entertainment, information, navigation and telecommunication functions either featured as standard or fitted as an option. In perfect ergonomic position, the Controller allows convenient and intuitive selection and activation of functions through standardised tipping, turning and pressing motions. A picture of the Controller presented in the Control Display and the clear menu structure ensure easy orientation in choosing the next step in operating the system. Measuring 7 inches in the standard and 10.2 inches on the optional Professional navigation system, the Control Display is integrated in the dashboard at the ideal level and distance from the driver, ensuring superior and safe use and operation, with the driver hardly having to take his eyes off the road. Direct selection buttons on the Controller enable the driver to switch very quickly and conveniently among the CD, Radio, Telephone and Navigation functions. The range of such direct selection buttons is rounded off by the MENU, BACK and OPTION keys, while eight favourite buttons on the centre
BMW Media Information 11/2009 Page 48
console allow the driver to save and directly select radio stations, telephone numbers and destinations in the navigation system as well as further menu items available through iDrive. Yet another unique feature of BMW iDrive is multi-mode operation by voice entry and the Controller. The driver is able to switch from one to the other of these entry modes easily and conveniently while conducting one and the same task, if he wishes leaving the voice detection function in full operation also while making an entry through the Controller, thus using both functions at the same time. Voice entry also allows direct access to music titles as well as verbal entry of complete addresses. The driver is able to read out the place, the name of the street and the number of his destination in one single command, with the system subsequently arranging the individual items in the required order to reach the destination desired. Navigations system Professional with hard disc memory. BMW iDrive offers its full benefits also when the car is fitted with one of the optional navigation systems. On both the Business and Professional navigation system, maps in high resolution are combined with arrows guiding the driver to his destination. Full-screen map presentation on the Professional navigation system furthermore offers an incomparably detailed overview of the region through which the driver is currently travelling. Both maps and individual symbols may be presented as three-dimensional graphics, and the system is also able to present an elevation map showing the various levels of altitude. Selected sights along the route are highlighted as true-to-life photo graphics with a pre-view map helping the driver choose his destination. As an alternative to full-screen presentation, the driver may activate an assistance window in the Control Display presenting either further images/graphics, information from the on-board computer, or data on the entertainment programme. A special map function serving to highlight traffic conditions offers a clear visual impression of the latest traffic jam and congestion reports, while the High Guiding function with integrated driving lane recommendations transmits detailed views such as turning requirements at a complicated road junction from the screen directly to the instrument cluster or, where fitted as an option, straight to the Head-Up Display. Yet a further function offered by BMW ConnectedDrive is BMW Routes. Before setting out, the driver and his passengers are able to put together their personal routes with the help of a route planner in the internet, then conveniently transmitting such routes via BMW Online directly into the car or using a USB stick for direct entry into the navigation system, which will
BMW Media Information 11/2009 Page 52
A further highlight is the harmonious integration of the glass panel in the outer skin of the car ensured by the contoured sweep at the front end of the glass panel following the front edge of the roof. Precise mechanical alignment ensures a highly accurate connection of the front edge of the glass roof and the seal on the sliding roof also when the roof is in vent position, preventing any unpleasant noise caused by air swirl. The contoured sliding roof is moved to and fro by two electric drive motors, the control unit is integrated in the roof lining together with the buttons for the cars interior lights. The sliding roof liner integrated harmoniously into the interior of the car, finally, also moves to and fro electrically. Superior occupant safety on all seats. High-load-resistant bearing structures, generous and exactly defined deformation zones as well as highly efficient restraint systems coordinated by the cars high-performance electronic control units set the foundation for a high standard of passive safety in the new BMW 5 Series Sedan. Forces generated in a head-on collision are diverted by several load paths in the floorpan, on the side frame, in the bulkhead and in the roof, absorbed by the deformation zones and thus kept away from the passenger cell. The load-bearing structures forming the load paths are made largely of multiphase steel and hot-moulded steel, an additional bumper system around the front axle serving to spread out the forces acting on the front section of the car. Reinforced side structures in the B-pillars and the side-sills, extra-strong door reinforcements and stable crossbars on the seats limit the depth of deformation as well as the speed of intrusion in the event of a collision from the side. With its reinforced pillars and roof supports, the passenger cell also offers safe survival space for the occupants in the event of a rollover. Within the new BMW 5 Series Sedan the frontal and hip thorax airbags are supplemented by curtain head airbags at the side for both rows of seats as a standard feature. Depending on the type and severity of a collision, the integrated safety electronics determine the restraint effect provided and the time of release. In accordance with national requirements, finally, the frontal airbags come with a single or two-stage gas generator. All seats feature three-point inertia-reel seat belts and belt force limiters, with an additional belt latch tightening function on the front seats. To prevent cervical spine injury in the event of a collision from behind, the front seats
BMW Media Information 11/2009 Page 53
come as standard with crash-activated headrests. Masterminded by the cars safety electronics, these headrests move up instantaneously in the event of a collision, closing the gap between the front end of the headrest and the occupants head by up to 60 cm or 24 front-to-rear and up to 40 cm/16 in a vertical direction. The occupants head is therefore very close to the headrest even before being moved back by the forces acting on the car. This enhances the stabilising and protective function of the headrests and reduces the risk of injury or hyperextension around the occupants cervical spine. Both ISOFIX child seat fastenings at the rear and the option to deactivate the front passengers airbag naturally come as standard. The safety steering column on the new BMW 5 Series, in turn, comes with a load-related deformation element as well as an extra-large spacer unit protecting the driver additionally from collision forces coming out of the engine compartment. Active engine lid for optimum pedestrian safety. To optimise the high standard of passive pedestrian safety, the new BMW 5 Series Sedan comes, depending on national specifications, with an active engine compartment lid automatically moving up in a collision with a pedestrian. The pyrotechnical release mechanism is activated at speeds between 20 and 55 km/h (12 - 34 mph) as soon as data acquired by sensors at the front of the car indicate a collision with a pedestrian, lifting up the engine lid 30 mm/1.18 at the front and 50 mm/1.97 at the rear. This provides additional deformation travel beneath the engine lid, such absorption of impact energy serving to reduce the risk of injury or at least the consequences of an accident. Optimum visibility: bi-xenon headlights, LED daytime driving lights and Adaptive Headlights with variable light distribution. The dual round headlights on the new BMW 5 Series Sedan so typical of the brand ensure excellent illumination of the road in the dark and in the case of poor visibility on account of bad weather. On the standard headlights, LED light rings serve as positioning lights, again in typical BMW style, forming a clear and consistent light circle. Further standard features are the foglamps and the light sensor automatically activating the low beam as a function of ambient brightness. A rain sensor determining the intensity of precipitation and thus allowing automatic adjustment of the screenwipers is likewise fitted as standard. The new BMW 5 Series Sedan is available as an option with bi-xenon headlights in which case the LED units in the characteristic light rings may

at this point, ranging from anti-lock brakes via an on-board computer all the way to electronic fuel injection. Right from the start upon its introduction into the market, the new sedan came with a broad model range and engines extending from 90 to 184 hp. A particularly sporting version was introduced in 1984, even though the 218 hp BMW M535i was not the last word from Motorsport GmbH this time. Instead, Motorsport GmbH proudly presented the very epitome of the Sports Sedan at the 1985 Frankfurt Motor Show, the BMW M5. Hardly distinguishable from the other models when considered from outside, the BMW M5 was optimised throughout beneath its sheet metal for uncompromising driving dynamics. Power came from a straight-six boasting four-valve technology and no less than six throttle butterflies. Output of this drive unit derived from the legendary BMW M1 was 286 hp, developing supreme thrust and performance previously offered by only the most thoroughbred sports cars. The decision taken by BMW in 1983 to enter the fiercely contested diesel market with the BMW 524td was almost a revolution. To offer the character so typical of the brand also with a diesel, the only option was obviously to give the car a powerful and refined turbodiesel engine. The 2.4-litre straightsix developing maximum output of 115 hp fulfilled these requirements in a truly ideal manner, the BMW 524td offering the best performance of all diesels in its segment and, at the same time, the highest standard of fuel efficiency. Clearly, even diesel sceptics were impressed by this innovative combination of superior muscle and equally outstanding economy. Entry into the diesel market was not the only option for BMW to bring together sporting performance and superior economy. On the contrary precisely at this time BMW had already completed a large number of studies and innovations in developing particularly fuel-efficient technologies and looking for alternative sources of energy. Many of these innovations went into series production in the course of time, others set the foundation for long-term research projects. One example is the hydrogen-powered test car presented as early as in 1976 on the basis of the first-generation BMW 5 Series. Apart from the turbodiesel, a particularly efficient petrol version of the BMW 5 Series proved suitable for series production right from the start: The BMW 525e was powered by a six-cylinder designed and built consistently for superior traction and economy all in one. Displacing 2.7 litres, the power unit named after the Greek letter eta also known as the symbol for efficiency developed maximum output of 125 hp at an engine speed of 4,250 rpm, with peak torque of 240 Newton-metres/177 lb-ft at just 3,250 rpm. New engine
BMW Media Information 11/2009 Page 58
electronics, optimised weight and a five-speed transmission with an overdrive economy function were further features helping to give this model outstanding efficiency. The second generation of the BMW 5 Series was replaced after seven years of production. By this time sales had amounted to more than 722.000 units, again setting a new record. 1988: third generation of the BMW 5 Series for the first time also as the Touring. With BMW having started the introduction of catalyst technology back in 1984, the third-generation BMW 5 Series was fitted from the start exclusively with this high standard of emission management. The first models available from the beginning in 1988 were the BMW 520i, the BMW 525i, the BMW 530i, the BMW 535i, and the BMW 524td) all with six cylinders and electronic fuel injection. The power range extended from 115 all the way to 211 hp. A new BMW M5 was also introduced at an early point, with engine output of 315 hp further increased to 340 hp in 1992. The two eight-cylinder BMW 530i and BMW 540i followed in 1992, with the BMW 518i being introduced in 1993 as the entry-level model with a fourcylinder power unit. In the meantime, the six-cylinder engines, benefiting from four-valve technology and variable Vanos camshaft management, had gained even greater power, torque and efficiency. With its precisely defined deformation zones and even stiffer passenger cell, the third generation of the BMW 5 Series set new standards in the area of occupant safety. As an option the elaborately refined suspension was available with electronically controlled dampers, a further option being speed-related Servotronic steering assistance. ASC Automatic Stability Control was also available for the first time in addition to the anti-lock brake system. The first BMW 5 Series with electronically all-wheel drive was launched in 1991, the concept of fully variable power distribution from front to rear, together with a rear axle differential lock, proving right from the start in the first comparative tests to be superior to all four-wheel-drive systems available so far. Compared with its predecessor, the third-generation BMW 5 Series was significantly longer and came with a lot more space inside, also thanks to its brand-new design. Indeed, the new sedan created under the guidance of
BMW Media Information 11/2009 Page 59
Chief Designer Claus Luthe combined sporting elegance and flowing lines with a distinctive wedge shape. This stylish character was then carried over by the designers to the first BMW 5 Series Touring, this unique five-door revealed at the 1992 Frankfurt Motor Show offering a brand-new look and brand-new features behind the B-pillar. With sound insulation being given particular significance, the level of sound within the body was virtually the same as in the sedan even though the generous space inside obviously formed an ideal resonance body for acoustic effect and disturbance. The BMW 5 Series Touring was fitted from the start with self-levelling on the rear axle. The Touring model was available with nearly all the engines also offered on the sedan, and as an option also came with all-wheel drive. A BMW M5 Touring joined the range in 1992, successful sales of this five-door clearly confirming BMWs concept to combine additional practical value with attractive design: Overall sales of the BMW 5 Series Touring up to 1996 amounted to approximately 125,000 units, and total sales of the thirdgeneration BMW 5 Series were more than 1.3 million units the world over. 1995: the fourth generation for the first time with light-alloy suspension. The fourth generation of the BMW 5 Series made its debut at the 1995 Frankfurt Motor Show, offering an evolutionary development through its design of the former model with its sporting and elegant style. A particular feature at the front was the dual round headlights behind a glass cover, with the light rings for the positioning and daytime driving lights so typical of BMW being added in the year 2000. Both the sedan and the Touring introduced in 1997 once again offered even more space within the passenger compartment. Boasting features such as a multifunction steering wheel, a navigation system, active seats and Dynamic Stability Control, the BMW 5 Series was acknowledged as a particularly outstanding high-tech representative of its segment. In the interest of enhanced driving dynamics and safety, the body came with a significant increase in torsional stiffness over the former model, and the fourth-generation BMW 5 Series was the first large-scale production car worldwide made almost completely of light alloy. The newly developed all-aluminium power units also helped to significantly reduce the weight of the car.

The new model entered the market with straight-six power units delivering maximum output from 150 to 193 hp. Technical innovations gave both the petrol and diesel engines even more power on further reduced fuel consumption. Two V8 engines were introduced once again in 1996, with the new BMW M5 entering the market in 1998 with the most powerful production engine built by BMW up to that time: this 294 kW/400 hp power unit came, among other highlights, with features such as oil supply controlled for centrifugal forces and electronically controlled individual throttle butterflies. The fourth generation of the BMW 5 Series once again set up a new sales record accounting for 1.47 million units sold up to the end of production in early 2004. 2003: the fifth-generation BMW 5 Series progressive and efficient. From the start, the fifth generation of the BMW 5 Series introduced in 2003 stood out through its impressive design and innovative technology. Once again, both the sedan and the Touring launched in 2004 set new standards in terms of active safety, driver assistance systems, and efficiency. BMWs typical design language with convex and concave surfaces as well as flowing transitions from the front and side to the rear gave the fifth edition of the BMW 5 Series a particularly characteristic note, the interior with its clear-cut functions highlighting above all the iDrive control system featured as standard. Engines with an aluminium or, respectively, a composite aluminium/magnesium crankcase as well as the lightweight aluminium front section of the car ensured a particularly good balance of weight front-to-rear. Another important component newly developed at the time was the integral rear axle likewise made of aluminium DSC Dynamic Stability Control was yet another significant innovation contributing to the cars excellent suspension technology, particularly through its enhanced range of functions. The same superiority was provided for the first time by Active Steering and Adaptive Drive with electronic damper adjustment and anti-roll stability management. As highlights in the area of driver assistance, the fifth-generation BMW 5 Series also featured cutting-edge technologies such as the Head-Up Display and BMW Night Vision, Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go and Lane Departure Warning introduced as new systems in the car. The range of engines in the BMW 5 Series was expanded to six petrol and four diesel engines extending from 125 kW/170 hp in the BMW 520i all the way to 270 kW/367 hp in the BMW 550i. The BMW M5 and the BMW M5 Touring, in turn, came with a 5.0-litre V10 high-speed power unit boasting individual

the process of fitting the chassis supports, and the actual process of body production in the Bodyshop. Further progress in production is ensured in the creation of value along the production line and in logistics. BMWs objective in all cases is to ensure a clear-cut flow of individual parts the one-piece flow process all the way from the supplier to the actual completion of the car itself. Innovative production processes in the Bodyshop. Innovative production technologies have been developed for the production of several models in correspondingly high numbers. One example is the production of aluminium doors with the support of the BMWs Aluminium Competence Centre in Dingolfing. The know-how gained in the research processes conducted here, as well as the innovative developments made possible in this way, benefit all of the BMW Groups brands. The large share of aluminium in the body components of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan enables the experts in Dingolfing to contribute even more of their outstanding competence in this technology. The new aluminium processing technology developed at BMW Plant Dingolfing, for example, sets the foundation for the precise modelling of sophisticated design features such as the character line on the side doors. The large load-bearing aluminium plate shells within the doors, in turn, ensure a high standard of all-round stiffness. And to join the individual components with one another, the Plant uses both laser welding and structural bonding. BMW Plant Dingolfing also uses innovative processes in the production of steel panel components. Two new steel panel presses involving an investment of approximately Euro 50 million will serve in future to give the body components of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan a unique standard of quality. BMW is the worlds first car maker to use hard-pressing technology at Plant Dingolfing, with hot-galvanised steel plate first being moulded cold and subsequently heated to a temperature of 900o C or 1,650o F. Then the components are cooled down in a pressing tool with integrated water-cooling to approximately 70o C or 160o F within a few seconds, being hardened in the process with maximum efficiency. This gives the components involved three to four times the stiffness of conventional steel plate. The ProgDie rapid-action press also new in the production process likewise offers an exceptionally high standard of efficiency in production and the use of energy. Among the worlds largest presses of its kind, the ProgDie press

integrates several steps in production and is able to turn out up to 160 components in 40 strokes per minute. Up to 21 work processes are conducted at the same time, from the first stamping process through various elongation processes all the way to the final insertion of stamped components. In ProgDie production the individual strips of material come straight off the steel plate cylinder and are consistently moved through the die in each step. This ensures particularly efficient use of material and a reduction in the consumption of energy. Compared with conventional pressing processes, this saves approximately 5 million kilowatt hours of electricity each year. Supreme quality right from the outset. To fulfil BMWs strict quality standards right from the start when launching a new model such as the BMW 5 Series, BMW not only conducts many tests and examinations with pre-series cars, but also applies the so-called cubing method: More than a year before the start of production, the quality and accuracy of more than 800 parts and modules are tested at the plant on a completely accurate body model. Weighing approximately three tonnes, this model is milled according to the cars development data out of massive, shrinkage-free special aluminium down to an accuracy of 0.1 millimetres. In several iterations on this model, first the prototypes and then the first components are fitted in position together with the various suppliers to check the precise dimensions and perfect fit of components with one another and on the body as a whole prior to the start of series production. Modular strategy serving to promote customer-oriented production. A highly sophisticated system referred to as the Customer-Oriented Sales and Production Process (COSP) ensures that each car ordered by the customer is completed exactly on time and fully in accordance with the customers specific wishes and requests. COSP is also ensured by highly flexible production based not only highly developed logistics but also on the most efficient processes. Particularly the processes conducted on the assembly line benefit from the use of pre-assembled modules delivered as a whole straight to the production line. The complete front-end, for example, is one single module delivered just-insequence to the line, where subsequently only a few final steps are required. The bodies-in-white for the various models are built in any random order and combination according to the data provided by production management. In conjunction with modular supply, this allows highly flexible and very lean
