Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions for new passenger automobiles can be obtained from "The Passenger Car (Fuel Consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations", which are available free of charge at all sales outlets and at DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, Germany.


All dimensions in the technical drawings are in millimetres.

The technical data specified applies to vehicles in the German market. The models illustrated may, in part, include optional equipment and accessories not fitted as standard. According to the specific requirements of other markets, alterations may occur regarding models, standard and optional equipment as described in the text and illustrations. For precise information, please contact your BMW dealer. Subject to change in design and equipment. Subject to error.

Unladen weight: the figure quoted includes a 90 per cent tank filling, 68 kg for the driver and 7 kg for luggage. Unladen weight applies to vehicles with standard equipment. Optional equipment may increase this figure.

The BMW 7 Series is only available with automatic transmission.

Max. output: the petrol engines are designed for RON 98 fuel. The engines may be run on RON 91 fuel with a decrease in power.

Composite fuel consumption: all engines for the 7 Series meet the EU4 emissions standard. Diesel models are fitted with a particle filter. Fuel consumption is determined in accordance with the ECE driving cycle made up of approximately one third urban traffic and two thirds extra-urban driving (based on the distance covered). CO2 emissions are measured in addition to fuel consumption as such. Optional equipment (e.g. wider tyres) can significantly influence the fuel consumption.
