The new BMW 5 series was unveiled in October 2016. It was made available to the press for test drives in Portugal soon thereafter. It was "launched" officially in the flesh to the public in January 2017 (ie last week) at the Detroit Motor Show. It goes on sale in UK, Europe, US and Australia in February 2017, ie in a month’s time. The CBU units scheduled to arrive on our shores in Mar/Apr 2017, with CKD following suit later this year. Two salesmen from 2 different dealers have informed me that the indicative price for the entry level 530i will be about RM360k - RM390K. i am told that dealers are taking bookings for the G30 now. I also understand that the CBU 530i will probably not be an Msport model. We will most likely not get any diesels due to our B10 biodiesel policy. The 520i seems to be dropped, so entry level petrol engine will be the 530i which will use the newer B48 engine with slightly higher hp and torque than the outgoing 528i. There will probably also be a 540i but that would likely be prived closer to RM500k being a 6 cylinder twin turbo. An indication of BMW Malaysia's models and options may be deduced from the 730i and 740i being currently offered. The 530e, due launched in UK/US in March will be interesting but due to the backlog in the X5 hybrid, we will probably need to wait 2-3 years before it hits Malaysia. That would mean 2019 or 2020. With the introduction of the G30 5 series literally around the corner, I suggest to the moderator that a new thread on the G30 under 5 series be included in the forum and this thread be moved there so members can share information on this car which poses to be the most exciting BMW this year.
