BMW Group Australia is set to further enhance its diverse product offering with launch of the new M550i xDrive sports sedan.

This new model brings together towering performance via its BMW TwinPower Turbo V8 and all-weather traction capability thanks to standard fitment of the highly sophisticated, rear-drive biased and variable BMW xDrive system.

The 4.4-litre engine aboard the M550i xDrive features two twin-scroll turbochargers and provides the driver with unrelenting power delivery and a loud, evocative note.

The powerplant is mated to the latest-generation eight-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission, which features a wider gear ratio spread and intelligent electronic management to provide seamless shifts no matter the driving style.

The M550i xDrive matches the high level of driver appeal and capability with peerless refinement, build quality and a luxury interior that boasts outstanding craftsmanship and cabin ambience.

Two variants will be offered – beginning with the Pure – to provide customers maximum choice while still delivering identical performance characteristics and supreme roadholding with specific tuning courtesy of BMW M.

The M550i xDrive Pure includes an extensive list of standard dynamic and luxury specification elements including 20-inch M light alloy wheels, M Sport brakes, adaptive M suspension, M aerodynamics package, M Sport differential, Fine Wood interior trim, sport seats, BMW Live Cockpit Professional, Head-Up Display, Driving Assistant Plus and harman / kardon surround sound system.

Condition Based Servicing

All maintenance requirements for the BMW 5 Series are controlled by the Condition Based Servicing (CBS) system.

With CBS, sensors and advanced algorithms monitor and calculate the conditions in which a vehicle is used, including mileage, time elapsed since its last service, fuel consumption and how a vehicle is driven. Based on the information captured, maintenance requirements are determined, identifying whether an annual vehicle inspection or oil service is due.

Selected BMW service and maintenance costs can be covered by a single, one-off advance payment with BMW Service Inclusive (BSI), which is available in two packages: Basic or Plus.
