Closing the gas cap
Place the cap in position and turn it until a clearly audible click is heard. Close the gas cap carefully after refueling until a click is heard. While closing, be sure not to squeeze the strap which is fastened to the cap. A loose or missing cap will activate the CHECK GAS CAP* lamp.< Warning lamp* lights up. The gas cap is not properly closed or is missing. Check if the gas cap is properly closed.
The engine uses lead-free gasoline only.
25 The use of poor-quality fuels may result in drivability, starting and stalling problems especially under certain environmental conditions such as high ambient temperature and high altitude. Should you encounter drivability problems which you suspect could be related to the fuel you are using, we recommend that you respond by switching to a recognized high-quality brand. Failure to comply with these recommendations may also result in unscheduled maintenance.<
Premium Unleaded Gasoline, Minimum Octane Rating: AKI 91. Minimum Octane Rating corresponds to the Anti Knock Index AKI and is determined according to the so-called (R+M)/2 method. Do not use leaded gasoline, as otherwise the lambda probe and catalytic converter will be permanently damaged.<
Fuel tank capacity
> Approx. 16.6 gal./63 liters, of which > approx. 2.1 gal./8 liters are reserve capacity. Do not drive to the last drop of fuel. This can prevent the engine from operating properly and result in damage.<
Use high-quality brands
Field experience has indicated significant differences in fuel quality: volatility, composition, additives, etc., among gasolines offered for sale in the United States and Canada. Fuels containing up to and including 10 % ethanol or other oxygenates with up to 2.8 % oxygen by weight, that is, 15 % MTBE or 3% methanol plus an equivalent amount of cosolvent, will not void the applicable warranties with respect to defects in materials or workmanship.

Central locking system
The central locking system engages and releases the following locks at the same time: > doors > luggage compartment lid > fuel filler door and > glove compartment. The central locking system is ready for operation whenever the driver's door is closed.
The key set
1 Each master key with remote control is powered by an extended-life battery that is charged automatically in the ignition lock as you drive. For this reason, user every master key at least twice a year to keep its battery charged. Depending on which master key is recognized when the vehicle is unlocked, different settings are called up and carried out in the vehicle, refer to Vehicle Memory, Key Memory on page 64. 2 Replacement key for storage in a safe place, e.g. your wallet.

You can also open the luggage compartment lid when the system is armed by pressing the button of the remote control. When it is closed, the lid is once again secured. Extended pressure on the button sets off the alarm Panic mode, refer to page 30.
To arm and disarm the alarm system
When the vehicle is locked or unlocked via the remote control or the driver's door lock, the alarm system is also simultaneously armed or disarmed.
vehicle is unlocked: an attempted entry has been detected in the period since the system was armed. Following triggering of an alarm, the indicator lamp will flash continuously. > When the vehicle is being transported by train > When animals are to remain in the vehicle.
Tilt alarm sensor: The tilt of the vehicle is monitored. The alarm system reacts, for example, to attempts to steal the wheels or tow the vehicle. Interior motion sensor: The vehicle interior is monitored up to the height of the seat cushions. Even when the convertible top is open, the alarm system including the interior motion sensor is armed. Objects falling into the vehicle, e.g. leaves, can trigger unintentional alarms, refer to Avoiding unintentional alarms.
> Press the button on the remote control twice. The indicator lamp lights up briefly and then flashes continuously. The tilt alarm sensor and the interior motion sensor are deactivated until the vehicle is unlocked and locked again. You can have the tilt alarm sensor and the interior motion sensor permanently deactivated.< The system deactivates the tilt alarm sensor and the interior motion sensor if the convenience closing of windows and glass sunroof is interrupted within the first 10 seconds and then restarted. The vehicle must then be unlocked and relocked before the sensors will resume operation.<
Indicator lamp displays
> The indicator lamp below the interior rearview mirror flashes continuously: the system is armed > The indicator lamp flashes immediately after the vehicle is locked: doors or luggage compartment lid are not completely closed. Even if you do not close the alerted area(s), the remaining areas are secured, and the indicator lamp will flash continuously after 10 seconds. However, the interior motion sensor is not activated > The indicator lamp goes out immediately after the vehicle is unlocked: no manipulation or attempted intrusions have been detected in the period since the system was armed > The indicator lamp flashes for 10 seconds immediately after the
At all times, occupants should sit upright and be properly restrained infants and small children in appropriate child-restraint systems; larger children and adults using the safety belts. Never let an occupant's head rest near or on a side airbag because the inflating airbag could cause a serious or fatal injury. Please note that the word Airbag imprinted on the door trim panel indicates the airbag's location. Accident research shows that the safest place for children in an automobile is in the rear seat. However, a child sitting in the rear seat and not properly restrained may place his or her head on or near the side airbag, if so equipped. For example, a child even though belted may fall asleep with his or her head against the side airbag. It may be difficult for a driver to ensure that children in the rear seat will remain properly positioned at all times and not place their heads on or near the side airbag. Therefore, we recommend that the rear seat side airbags, if provided, be deactivated if you plan to transport children in the rear seat. The rear seat side airbags may already have been deactivated by a BMW center. If you are uncertain of their status, or wish to have the airbags activated or deactivated, please contact your BMW center.< Even when all these guidelines are observed, there is still a small residual risk of injuries to the face, hands and arms occurring from airbag deployment in isolated instances. In sensitive individuals, the ignition and inflation noise may induce a mild hearing loss that is temporary in most cases. Airbag warning information is also provided on the sun visors. This is the right way a child should sit in a child restraint when rear side airbags are provided.
If there is a system malfunction, there is a risk that the airbags will not be triggered within their normal response range, even if the level of impact would normally have triggered them. Have your BMW center inspect the airbag system immediately.<
This is the right way a larger child should sit wearing the seat belt when rear side airbags are provided.
The indicator lamp indicates the operational status of the airbag system when the ignition key is in position 1 or higher. System operational: > The indicator lamp comes on briefly when the ignition key is turned to position 1 or higher. System malfunction: > Indicator lamp does not come on or > indicator lamp lights up continuously.
Transporting children safely
Leave the rear safety belts in the holders if they are not needed to avoid unwanted movement from the safety belts at high speeds.< Commercially available child seats complying with the legal standard are designed to be secured with a seat belt or with the seat belt portion of a combination lap/shoulder belt. Improperly or inadequately installed restraint systems can increase the risk of injury to children. Always read and follow the Child-restraint system with tether instructions that come with the system.
59 restraint system that has first been properly secured with a safety belt. Never install a rearward-facing childrestraint system in the front passenger seat. We strongly urge you to carefully read and comply with the instructions for installation and use provided by the child restraint's manufacturer whenever you use such a device. Do not attempt to modify child-restraint systems. If you do this, the protection provided by these systems could be impaired. Be sure that all occupants of all ages remain properly and securely restrained at all times.< All rear seating positions in your vehicle meet the recommendations of SAE J1819, an industry-recommended practice for securing child-restraint systems in motor vehicles.
The belt cannot be extracted further. Always observe the installation instructions provided by the manufacturer of the child-restraint system.
To unlock the safety belt
Release the safety belt, remove the child seat and retract the safety belt to its end position on the belt retractor.
Securing child-restraint system
All of the rear belt retractors and the front passenger's safety belt can be locked for mounting and securing childrestraint systems. A label with the appropriate instructions for this is located in the immediate vicinity of the buckle latch of each safety belt.
LATCH child-restraint mounting system
LATCH: Lower Anchors and Tether for CHildren The left and right rear seats are both equipped with a LATCH child-restraint mounting system.
To lock the safety belt
Extract the entire length of the belt from the inertia reel mechanism. Allow the reel to retract the belt somewhat and engage the buckle, then tighten the belt against the child-restraint system. The retraction mechanism is now locked.
The LATCH anchorage points are identified by symbols. The anchorage points for the LATCH child-restraint system installation are located behind the upholstery at the positions indicated by the arrows. Carefully slide the brackets through the gaps in the upholstery at the indicated locations. Always follow all manufacturer's instructions and observe all safety precautions when installing the LATCH child-restraint mounting system. Leave the rear safety belts in the holders if they are not needed to avoid unwanted movement from the safety belts at high speeds.<
You will find that it is often easier to turn the ignition key from position 0 to position 1 when you move the steering wheel slightly to help disengage the lock. Individual electrical accessories are ready for operation.
Ignition key positions
0 Steering locked 1 Steering unlocked 2 Ignition on 3 Start engine
The key can only be inserted and removed in this position. After removing the key, turn the steering wheel slightly to the left or right until you hear the lock engage. If the key is not removed, an acoustic signal sounds when the driver door is opened.
Starting the engine and driving off
Do not allow the engine to warm up by leaving it running while the vehicle remains stationary. Instead, drive off immediately at a moderate engine speed.< Do not allow the engine to run in enclosed spaces. Otherwise, breathing the exhaust fumes can lead to unconsciousness and death. The exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide, an odorless and colorless, but highly toxic gas. Do not leave the vehicle unattended with the engine running. An unattended vehicle with a running engine represents a safety hazard. If you leave the vehicle with the engine running, move the gearshift lever into the idling position or the selector lever into position N, as applicable, and apply the parking brake. If you fail to do this, the vehicle could move.< > Do not press the accelerator pedal while starting the engine > Do not end the starting procedure too early, but do not continue it for more than 20 seconds > Release the ignition key immediately when the engine starts > Do not let the engine warm up in idling position. Instead, begin to drive at moderate engine speeds. If the engine does not start on the first attempt if it is very hot or cold, for instance: Press the accelerator pedal halfway down while engaging the starter. Cold starts at very low temperatures below about +5 7/156 and at high altitudes above 3,300 ft/1,000 m: > On the first attempt, engage the starter for approx. 10 seconds > Press the accelerator pedal halfway down while engaging the starter. Extended starting attempts, characterized by excessively frequent or long periods with the starter engaged, can damage the catalytic converter.< When driving, standing at idle or parking the vehicle, take care to avoid contact between the hot exhaust system and flammable materials grass, hay, leaves, etc. Such contact could lead to a fire, resulting in serious personal injury and property damage.<
The detent engages automatically, and the indicator lamp in the instrument cluster comes on when the ignition key is in position 2, refer to page 18.
Pull up slightly on the lever, press the button and lower the lever.
If exceptional circumstances make it necessary to engage the parking brake while the vehicle is in motion, do not pull it with excessive pressure. Keep your thumb pressed against the release button while carefully pulling the lever up. Excessive pressure can lead to overbraking and loss of traction fishtailing at the rear axle. The brake lamps do not come on when the parking brake is engaged. Always engage the parking brake when parking on slopes and inclined surfaces. Engaging a gear may not provide adequate resistance to rolling.< To avoid corrosion and one-sided braking, apply the parking brake lightly from time to time when coasting to a standstill at a traffic light, for example provided that it is safe to do so.<
When shifting gears in the fifth/sixth gear plane, be sure to press the gearshift lever to the right in order to prevent inadvertent selection of a gear in the third/fourth gear plane. Do not hold the vehicle in place on slopes by slipping or 'riding' the clutch. Use the parking brake instead. Riding the clutch leads to severe and premature clutch wear.<
Select only when the vehicle is stationary. Press the gearshift lever to the left to overcome the slight resistance. When you select reverse the backup lamps will light up automatically when the ignition key is in position 2. Data Index
Sequential M gearbox with Drivelogic*
The sequential M gearbox with Drivelogic is an automated manual gearbox with which clutching and shifting is assumed by an electro-hydraulic system. The SMG Drivelogic is operated via two shift paddles on the steering wheel and the selector lever in the center console. It offers the following functions: > Sequential and automated shifting mode > Ability to choose between different driving programs Drivelogic > Gradient assistance, refer to page 73 > Upshift display and shift lights, refer to page 74 > RPM matching on downshifts > Driving dependent functions: The respective driving situation, e.g. cornering, mountain driving or braking, is detected by sensors and taken into account for shifting, e.g. to achieve optimum gear selection during deceleration and subsequent acceleration > Slip recognition at the rear axle for increasing driving stability, e.g. during downshifting on slippery road surfaces > Operating safety through protection against misshifting. Under normal operating conditions, fuel consumption is lowest when driving in the first driving program of the automated shifting mode.
The indicator lamp in the instrument cluster lights up yellow. The Flat Tire Monitor is malfunctioning or out of order. Please contact your BMW center.
M Engine dynamics control
The Sport mode is deactivated every time the engine is started.
Brake force display
The system Sport mode will cause the engine to respond more spontaneously to any motion of the accelerator pedal.
Brake force display indicates to the road users behind you how hard you are braking. > Normal braking: the brake lamps among the rear lamps and the center brake lamp light up > Hard braking or braking with ABS: in addition, the illuminated rear lamp surface is extended, refer to the picture.
Activating: with the ignition key in position 2, press the SPORT button. The indicator lamp will come on. When the system is activated, the vehicle may gain speed without any additional pressure on the accelerator pedal.< Deactivating: press the SPORT button again; the indicator lamp will go out.
Activating/deactivating Sport mode
Parking lamps/Low beams
You can also have this function deactivated.<
Automatic headlamp control*
When the switch is in this position, the system automatically responds to changes in ambient light, for example in tunnels, at dusk and when it is raining or snowing, by switching the low beams on or off. The low-beam headlamps remain on, regardless of the ambient light, when you switch on the fog lamps.< Automatic headlamp control cannot serve as a substitute for your personal judgement in determining when the lamps should be switched on. For example, the sensors are not able to detect fog. In such situations switch on the lamp manually, as otherwise a safety hazard will result.< You can have the sensitivity of your vehicle's automatic headlamp control adjusted.<
LIGHTS ON warning
Whenever you open the driver's door after having turned the ignition key to position 0, you will hear an acoustic signal for a few seconds to remind you that the lamps have not been switched off.
Daytime driving lamps* Parking lamps
The front, rear and side vehicle lighting is switched on. You can use this to signal the position of the vehicle when it is parked. For lighting on one side for parking as an additional feature, refer to page 91. If you desire, the light switch can be left in the low-beam position: when the ignition is switched off, the external lighting is also switched off. Observe the legal regulations regarding the use of daytime driving lamps. When required, switch on the parking lamps as usual as described under Parking lamps. You can have the activation settings for the daytime driving lamps programmed on your vehicle.<
Q = up to 100 mph (160 km/h) T = up to 118 mph (190 km/h) H = up to 130 mph (210 km/h) V = up to 150 mph (240 km/h) W = up to 167 mph (270 km/h) Y = up to 186 mph (300 km/h)
Uniform Tire Quality Grading
Quality grades can be found where applicable on the tire sidewall between tread shoulder and maximum section width. For example: Tread wear 200 Traction AA Temperature A
The traction grades, from highest to lowest, are AA, A, B, and C.
Tire Identification Number
Tires with DOT codes comply with the guidelines of the U.S. Department of Transportation.
DOT quality grades
Those grades represent the tire's ability to stop on wet pavement as measured under controlled conditions on specified government test surfaces of asphalt and concrete. A tire marked C may have poor traction performance. The traction grade assigned to this tire is based on straightahead braking traction tests, and does not include acceleration, cornering, hydroplaning, or peak traction characteristics.< Grades B and A represent higher levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel than the minimum required by law. The temperature grade for this tire is established for a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded. Excessive speed, under-inflation, or excessive loading, either separately or in combination, can cause heat buildup and possible tire failure.<
The temperature grades are A, the highest, B, and C, representing the tire's resistance to the generation of heat and its ability to dissipate heat when tested under controlled conditions on a specified indoor laboratory test wheel. Sustained high temperature can cause the material of the tire to degenerate and reduce tire life, and excessive temperature can lead to sudden tire failure. The grade C corresponds to a level of performance which all passenger car tires must meet under the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 109. Winter and all-season tires. These have better winter driving properties than summer tires.
