New BMW 5 Series Pricing and Specification Announced

The New BMW 5 Series
Pricing, Specification and Ground-Breaking Service and Maintenance Package Confirmed

BMW Great Britain has announced on-the-road prices and full UK specification for the new 5 Series. On sale from 18 September 2003, the new 5 Series will feature new lightweight chassis components, increased performance, ground breaking levels of technology, higher levels of standard specification and more space than the outgoing 5 Series.

The three launch models will be joined in October by the 192 bhp 525i SE (£26,955.00) featuring the 2.5-litre International Engine of the Year, and the range-topping 333 bhp 545i SE (£41,555.00), at which time the 520i SE automatic and a Sequential Manual Gearbox for the 530i SE and 545i SE will also debut.

Not only does the new car cost less to service than its predecessor, customers can also specify the option of Service and Maintenance Inclusive (SMI). The five year / 60,000 mile Europe-wide pack, priced at £750.00, offers drivers convenience and peace of mind while travelling in the UK and abroad. SMI covers all servicing requirements alongside brake and clutch replacement if necessary, in any BMW dealership throughout the EU, and is expected to extend to other models in the future.
