The new BMW 5 Series Transmissions

Three transmission choices for LCI:

  • 6-speed manual gearbox (all models except 535d)

  • 6-speed automatic gearbox (option for all models except 535d where standard)

  • 6-speed sports automatic gearbox with steering wheel paddles and faster shift

times* (option for 530i/550i/530d/535d)

*Available from June 2007 production (further details will be published via the InfoNet)

From March 2007 the automatic transmission with be enhanced with a redesigned selector lever (electrical connection to transmission rather than mechanical). The internal gear selection / activation will now be electronic with enhanced shift patterns – this design change has resulted in a decrease in fuel consumption and in many cases now positions the automatic transmission with advantageous fuel consumption vs. its manual transmission counter-part.

Please note: 520d retains the current conventional automatic transmission
