G30 (2017 - Current)
The next generation 5 Series, chassis code G30, arrives at dealers in February 2017. Looking like a scaled down 7 Series and riding on the CLAR platform, the new 5 Series will have a focus on lightweight and sporty performance. Engines options will come from BMW's new B family for the 530 and 540 and a turbocharged V8 for the M550i. Read more about the 2017 5 Series

Ugh another tree hugger. Drove into Boston today. The crazy system was constantly shutting the car off at bad times. Finally had to shut it off as I couldn't stand it anymore.

What has improving air quality in cities got to do with hugging trees?

The system is awful. Anyone that has endured the painful off/on should agree. Restarting an engine constantly most certainly would used more fuel than idling and worsen the impact on so called “global warming “. I did hear back from BMW NA last week. They simply said the system “can’t be defeated” and refused to further explanation as to why. Clearly that was a false statement as I had previously said the dealer was willing and to reset it to remember the last setting but BMW refused to allow them to perform the work. They said that had done hundreds of them up until my request.

It's a new system. Not apples to apples comparison.

I did read the helpful and thorough post you shared. I can say the circumstances when the system should deactivate don’t necessarily work as described.

I was referring to your post about the dealership not being able to code the system off.

They were in the process of recoding it. During that process an approval code was required from their field people. They told my dealer they would not allow it. Service Manager was very frustrated and said I should speak with BMW to rethink their position. Didn’t at all sound like the capability to do it wasn’t there and it likely had to do with BMW being fined for recoding many other cars, perhaps even some 2018s?..
