Mirad todos los cambios que van a tener los E-60 desde el mes de marzo (no solo los nuevos motores de gasolina) Salu2 "If you have a 5 series on order you may want to delay it a bit..... Week 9 production changes: New Petrol engines: As from Week 9 production the following models will now be introduced with the new N52 Six-cylinder VALVETRONIC 24 Valve engine. This engine has an increase in cubic capacity, power and efficiency and has a more dynamic torque delivery than its predecessor. 523i SE/Sport (formerly the 520i SE/Sport) - Saloon and Touring 525i SE/Sport - Saloon and Touring 530i SE/Sport - Saloon and Touring All 5 Series models will now be EU4 compliant from Week 9 production Standard Specification changes to Saloon model range: All 5 Series Saloon models will receive Servotronic Steering as a standard feature. (All Touring models already have this feature as standard specification) Changes to Dynamic Stability Control: All petrol 5 Series models will be upgraded to DSC+, which has the following enhancements: DSC switch will now show as DTC Brake pre-tensioning Rain brake support (brake drying) Hill start assist Brake fade compensation Soft stop Brake pre-tensioning shortens stopping distances by priming the brakes if the driver lifts off the accelerator sharply in preparation for an emergency stop. The result is a car that has already commenced the stopping process in an emergency situation by the time the driver applies the brake. Rain Brake Support improves braking performance in the wet. Driving on wet roads leads to a film of water building up on the brake discs. This naturally lengthens stopping distances when the brakes are applied as the pads cannot bite the disc as effectively as in the dry. With Rain Brake Support, the activation of the windscreen wipers or a signal from the screen-mounted Rain Sensor enables a periodic gentle application of the brakes to scrub off any residue. When full stopping power is then needed the maximum force is achievable. In day-to-day driving, this periodic brake application is unnoticeable and, to avoid any confusion or danger, the brake lights do not illuminate when Rain Brake Support is active. Hill Start Assist allows a manual transmission car to pull away smoothly on a gradient without rolling backwards. This is achieved by maintaining brake pressure for the short time taken to apply the accelerator after releasing the foot or handbrake. The system judges the gradient of slope and the subsequent degree of brake pressure needed for a smooth start. Fading Compensation When the brakes get very hot, a driver can experience some fade in stopping power. Consequently, he or she needs to apply greater force to achieve the same stopping power. Fading Compensation recognises this situation and applies additional braking without any extra effort from the driver. Soft Stop guarantees a smoother journey for all occupants. It allows the car to come to a perfectly smooth halt by releasing a small proportion of the braking pressure at the end of the braking cycle. In the event of an emergency, Soft Stop becomes inactive in order to achieve the shortest stopping distance. Interior changes for all 5 Series models: The following interior changes will be introduced: Handbrake handle grip will now be finished in leather All air vents within the dashboard and rear centre console will have a chrome insert on the vent direction levers Steering wheel inserts will have improved “soft-feel” plastics Heater control dials (only for Air Conditioning-advanced) will have Ruthenium finished surrounds Driver’s side stowage compartment (below headlight switch) will increase is size and have a compartment door similar to the E46 3 Series Whenever an upgrade interior trim is specified (435,437 or 438) the rear centre console will automatically receive two cigar lighters. Navigation changes for all 5 Series models: All 5 Series models specified with either Navigation Business or Professional will now have “short cut” function keys to the left of the display screen Short cut key functions: (in order as shown on screen display image) Navigation voice on/off Navigation guidance on/off Navigation destination input via Map Navigation information (Points of interest) display on/off Navigation display view select Direction of travel, Pointing North, Arrow view, Perspective view Navigation Route criteria selection Non motorway etc Traffic information Message list display Please note some of the above only applies to Navigation Professional with its Map display vs the standard arrow display of the Navigation Business “Perspective View” function will be introduced to Navigation Professional (gives the map more of a 3D feel, so I'm told) Various TMC enhancements will also be introduced from Week 9 production that include faster downloading of traffic information, correct display of TMC icons within the M25 area, correct mileage readings for actual traffic incidents, improved display for actual traffic events. Saloon Sport Models: A new optional 19” Sport alloy wheel with mixed Run-flat tyres will be offered to all 5 Series Saloon Sport models from Week 9. (Images will be published on Wednesday 26 January). Option code: 2NN M Double-spoke styling 172 8Jx19 245/35 R19 (front) and 9.5Jx19 275/30 R19 (rear) 19” wheels are not available for the Sport Touring models due to wheel arch and rear axle restrictions. Option Pricing: From week 9 production ALL 5 Series models will have an optional equipment price increase. A confirmed optional equipment price list will be published on Wednesday 26 January. New Options from Week 9 Production: 633 Bluetooth telephone preparation with telematics function 4MF Active seat back rest adjustment 541 Active Cruise Control will be released to Sport models and 535d Options deleted from Week 9 Production 206 SMG gearbox for 525i SE/Sport 638 Professional Telephone"
