MY 2019 changes - what we know so far

Recommended Posts

Production for the 5 series MY 2019 will start in July (week 27) see attached pdf.  (and my 530e M-sport happens to have build-week 27 :D )

 

what I "know" so far:

* petrol engines will get a particulate filter

WLTP co2 figures for the 530e jump from 44-49gr to 47-52gr (most will have 49gr, 52gr is only with certain 20" wheels)

 

* The chrome rings on the full digital 6WB cluster will be gone (except for the M5), the dials will remain the same (assuming for now, perhaps later this year an over the air update will come available to change the dials to the new style dials as in the new X5?)

 

* The chrome doorhandle-inserts are removed even in combination with ambient-light ... good news for those with shadowline

 

* extra exterior colour available: frozen grey

 

If somebody has additional info, feel free to share here :)

Very interesting that! Wonder if old models will get the same...

Hmm interesting! I actually quite like the chrome bits on the door handles / side vents on mine, it breaks up the very dark Sophisto Grey well I think.


I also liked (and preferred) the chrome bits on the door handles, certainly on the darker colors and in combination with chrome or aluminium window trim, if I do end up getting a MY2019 perhaps I can trade them with somebody who doesn't like the chrome :)

 

Glad the side vents will still be in the same finish as the window-trim

I knew this was coming, who's laughing now :lol:.

 

Everyone knew this was happening, but no one really cares, S500s have had GPFs fitted for about 4 years with no issues whatsoever.

I know my 530e M Sport Plus hasn't been built yet but there is still another month. If you get a pre MY 2019 would I be right to assume it would still come through on the lower emissions?

On one hand it would be nice to get the new model year but on the other the lower emissions will mean less company car tax and possibly the 20'' alloys put it in the next bracket

I would think the pre MY 2019 will still have the slightly lower emissions (on paper)
 

only if you go for the wheel codes 931 or 9WR (those are not the 20" styling 759) you end up with the highest co2, in case of the 530e that will be 52

all other codes will result in 49gr, except for the (small/narrow) 23F, 23U and 27C wheels it will be at 47gr

 

For me its important the co2 stays below 50, originally was 46 but might end up being 49, so still fine with me.

 

Another 2019 feature will be the "digital key", so you can unlock the car with NFC
not sure if this will be a standard feature
