5 Series 2003-2012 550i Touring Review
BMW is a German car-manufacturer and is known for its luxury cars. BMW India is a fully owned subsidiary of BMW Group and has maintained its position very nicely in the Indian market for past several years. At present, it stands second after Audi in the luxury car segment in the country. BMW, currently, has 11 car models available in India, including BMW X1, BMW 3 Series, BMW 5 Series, BMW X3, BMW X5, BMW Z4, BMW Gran Turismo, BMW M Series, BMW X6, BMW 6 Series and BMW 7 Series. With these 11 models, it has been able to maintain its reputation since its entry and has now become one of the most trusted brands in the luxury car market. BMW 5 Series is a member of the sedan segment and has 5 variants. The top end variant, which is also the only petrol variant, of the series is BMW 5 series 535i. It is powered by a 6-cylinder petrol engine with a twin scroll turbocharger, Valvetronic and direct injection fuel supply system. It generates a maximum of 306bhp at the rate of 5800rpm and a peak torque of 400Nm for a range of 1200-5000rpm. It delivers a mileage of 11.36kmpl and has a fuel tank capacity of 70 litres, thereby, allowing you to drive around 812kms once you get a full tank, without refuelling. The engine comes mated with eight-speed automatic transmission Steptronic that not only ensures incredibly soft shifts in gear but also reduces background noises at high speed. This 8-speed automatic transmission gearbox also significantly reduces the fuel consumption. This transmission is supported by the newly developed and more efficient converter clutch to further enhance the efficiency of the car. The exterior appearance of this car is quite aggressive, mainly, due to its high belt-line. The plush interiors compliment the overall aura of the car. Apart from the looks, there are also a number of safety and comfort features in it to provide a safe and comfortable ride. The main attracting features in this sedan would be the multi-function leather-jacketed steering wheel, the 10.2-inch LCD display, the 18-inch alloy wheels and the chrome furnish at a number of places .
As already said, exterior appearance of this sedan has an aggressive feel about it and that is mainly due to the presence of the high belt line on the front bonnet. The BMW-characteristic kidney grille with vertical chrome bars, on the front, is enclosed between the two curvy rectangular Xenon headlamps , which give more light compared to the normal headlamps. The lower black honeycomb grille is integrated with clear lens fog lamps to provide better visibility at night. The side profile is exclusively designed so as to give it a luxurious appeal. The beauty at the sides is basically because of the design of the C pillar, which produces a sweeping curve. The presence of sleek turn indicators right next to the wheel arches further enhances the beauty of the luxurious ride. At the rear end, we have LED tail lights extending to the trunk lid, besides twin chrome exhaust pipes placed on the rear left and rear right side. The car is available in the market in 8 gorgeous colours covering Deep Sea Blue, Alpine White, Space Grey, Cashmere Silver, Havana, Milano Beige, Imperial Blue Brilliant Effect and Sophisto Grey Brilliant Effect. BMW 5 Series has an overall length of 4841mm, width of 1846mm, height of 1,468mm and a wheelbase of 2888mm. The front tread, which is the distance between the front left and the front right wheel, is 1484mm. Similarly, the rear tread of the car is 1496mm. The kerb weight that the car bears is around 1705kg while its gross weight is 2315kg .
The interiors of this sedan are done with beige colour to create a soothing and relaxing ambiance within the cabin. There are a number of places where we can see wooden furnishing, which adds to its class and beauty. A brilliantly polished gear-knob in the centre and beige coloured floor mats, spread throughout the seating chamber, go excellently with the interior design of the car. The centre console includes an LCD touch display, AC vents, music system and air conditioner controls . The standard features in the 5 series model is a sunroof with tilt/slide function, and sun blinds, mounted on the rear side window.
In the comfort zone, there are various exciting and essential features like power steering wheel, power windows, air quality control, remote trunk and fuel lid openers, trunk light, vanity mirror, cruise control and parking sensor . Other than these, some of the more advanced traits that can be found in the sedan are seat lumbar support and a multi-function steering wheel. BMW has also incorporated their opulent off-spring with ultramodern gadgetries like iDrive to give you full control over all of the functions that have made their way into this 5 Series member, starting from the entertainment system, and going up to the integrated user guide. Apart from all these, there are also some of the basic features, which we can find in any of the cars running on the Indian roads.
Engine and Performance
BMW 535i, under its hood, carries a 3.0-litre In-Line petrol engine consisting of 6 cylinders with 4 valves per cylinder and direct injection fuel supply system . It produces a top 306bhp at the rate of 5800rpm and a peak torque of 400Nm for a range of 1200-5000rpm. With the power and torque numbers churned out here, we can readily accelerate the car from 0 to 100kmph in just 5.9 seconds and can attain a top speed of 236kmph . The drag coefficient, that defines the air resistance on the forward movement, of the car is 0.28 seconds, which is quite low and lower the drag coefficient, smoother is the movement of the car at high speeds.
Braking and Handling
In the brake mechanism, the car gets ventilated disc brakes both at the front and the rear to provide effective braking by reducing the braking distance. These brakes are equipped with ABS and Brake Assist to prevent the car from skidding in case of instant application of brakes. For handling, it gets a power steering wheel with collapsible steering column , which provides a turning radius of 11.4 meters. In the suspension, the car comes with a Double Joint Spring Strut Axle in the front and an Aluminium Integral Axle at the rear. The suspension system in the sedan makes sure that the occupants remain far from any kind of inconvenience resulting from the holes and bumps on the roads, thereby, delivering an absolutely pleasant and comfortable ride.
On the safety front, the lavish sedan offers dual airbags for the front and sides for superior cushioning effect in case of a collision, diminishing the possibility of injuries, Xenon headlamps, which generate more light as compared to the normal headlamps, crash sensor and key-less entry to lock and unlock the vehicle door and trunk without using a key. Other standard ones are central locking, power door locks, child safety locks, day and night rear view mirror, passenger side rear view mirror, rear seat belts, seat belt warning, front and side impact beams, traction control, adjustable seats, vehicle stability control, centrally mounted fuel tank and engine check warning.
Exquisite body design, lavish interior comforts and brilliantly-engineered steering wheel.
High maintenance cost.

5 Series 2003-2012 550i Touring Specifications & Features
Engine and Transmission
Engine type in car refers to the type of engine that powers the vehicle. There are many different types of car engines, but the most common are petrol (gasoline) and diesel engines
The displacement of an engine is the total volume of all of the cylinders in the engine. Measured in cubic centimetres (cc)
Power dictates the performance of an engine. It's measured in horsepower (bhp) or metric horsepower (PS). More is better.
The load-carrying ability of an engine, measured in Newton-metres (Nm) or pound-foot (lb-ft). More is better.
|No. of cylinder|
ICE engines have one or more cylinders. More cylinders typically mean more smoothness and more power, but it also means more moving parts and less fuel efficiency.
|Valves Per Cylinder|
Valves let air and fuel into the cylinders of a combustion engine. More valves typically make more power and are more efficient.
|Fuel Supply System|
Responsible for delivering fuel from the fuel tank into your internal combustion engine (ICE). More sophisticated systems give you better mileage.
|Bore X Stroke|
Bore is the diameter of the cylinder, and stroke is the distance that the piston travels from the top of the cylinder to the bottom. Multiplying these two figures gives you the cubic capacity (cc) of an engine.
|84.0 x 90.0 mm|
The amount of pressure that an engine can generate in its cylinders before combustion. More compression = more power.
A device that forces more air into an internal combustion engine. More air can burn more fuel and make more power. Turbochargers utilise exhaust gas energy to make more power.
A device that forces more air into an internal combustion engine. More air can burn more fuel and make more power. Superchargers utilise engine power to make more power.

Dimensions & Capacity
The distance from a car's front tip to the farthest point in the back.
The width of a car is the horizontal distance between the two outermost points of the car, typically measured at the widest point of the car, such as the wheel wells or the rearview mirrors
The height of a car is the vertical distance between the ground and the highest point of the car. It can decide how much space a car has along with it's body type and is also critical in determining it's ability to fit in smaller garages or parking spaces
|Wheel Base (mm)|
Distance from the centre of the front wheel to the centre of the rear wheel. A longer wheelbase is better for stability and also allows more passenger space on the inside.
|Front Tread (mm)|
The distance from the centre of the left tyre to the centre of the right tyre of a four-wheeler's front wheels. Also known as front track. The relation between the front and rear tread/track numbers decides a cars stability.
|Rear Tread (mm)|
The distance from the centre of the left tyre to the centre of the right tyre of a fourwheeler's rear wheels. Also known as Rear Track. The relation between the front and rear Tread/Track numbers dictates a cars stability
|Kerb Weight (Kg)|
It is the weight of just a car, including fluids such as engine oil, coolant and brake fluid, combined with a fuel tank that is filled to 90 percent capacity.
|Gross Weight (Kg)|
The gross weight of a car is the maximum weight that a car can carry which includes the weight of the car itself, the weight of the passengers, and the weight of any cargo that is being carried. Overloading a car is unsafe as it effects handling and could also damage components like the suspension.
