So the question is, which way to go - IAS - I think you can still add adaptive drive or just DHP. I guess I have about 6 months to choose before I have to order.

Thanks,

2018 540(x) Suspension/IAS

Hi all,

After reviewing the ordering guide, it looks like you cannot combine Active Steering with Dynamic Handling Package? Either on the 540 or 540X

Seems odd.

I have both on my 2015 535....

Interesting, I thought the range was supposed to be approx 30 miles. My wife's X5 shows 18 when fully charged.

I was thinking of maybe 1/4+- reserve.

Wife actually has a 2017 X5 40e. That's what got me thinking of the 530e to replace my 535d next year. I like the electric driving.

For the new 530e owners, curious of highway range with ICE. With only a 12 gallon tank, that would make the usable range say 8 gallons. 8x maybe 35mpg would be a range of about 280mi. While I only...

No, I wouldn't think so. When we take wife's 40e on a trip, no charging. Then again it has a 18 or 21gal tank I think, even in the hybrid.

That is why I personally was curious about the range. ...

So going back to my original post.

If the 530e has a tank of about 12 gallons, that means 8 usable, so highway range, which would be all gas, at about 30 mpg would be maybe 250 miles?

Nope, it is a 4 cyl. Hybrid power is more than adequate. In fact, more total torque than 3.5.

I like my 2015 535d - about 20 mpg around town and 35 on the highway. Gobs of torque. I may go back with a diesel, but the hybrid is a curiosity and since a lot of my driving is in town it is worth...
