Just dropped by the dealer and found a 530xi Touring with with M package, and discovered the auto truck closer that the car has. I was wondering if this will be available on the sedan. I think its a pretty cool feature and would like to have it on my M5.
Assuming that the M5 trunk lid is the same as for the standard 5-series, what I would most appreciate is a feature that prevented the trunk lid from trying to deliver an uppercut to my chin when the latch is released. :3:
I think its going to be standard on the 06 E60 now.
BMW 5 Series with an even wider range of standard features. The 2006 model year BMW 5 Series can be distinguished inter alia by their new iDrive Controller now featuring a black leather cover. A further new feature is the remote control of the luggage compartment lid in the Saloon now opening and closing electrically from the driver’s seat at the touch of a button. And last but not least, an engine start/stop button on the instrument panel now also comes as standard.
The additional safety and comfort functions of BMW’s latest generation of DSC Dynamic Stability Control are likewise standard in all BMW 5 Series as of autumn 2005.
Actually we have a great ergonomic possibility. A leather-covered knob would result in fewer mistakes due to a slippery surface. I would love to have that. It should be completely encased in leather material.
