Gasoline engines - Bmw 5 F10
Under the hood of the base version of the Bmw 520i is a 2.0-liter turbo engine with direct injection, developing 184 "horsepower" and 270 Nm of torque at 1250-4500 rpm. Combined with 6-speed manual or 8-speed "automatic" and rear-wheel drive, it provides acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 7,9 seconds, a "top speed" of 233-235 km / h and an average fuel consumption of level 6-6,5 liters in mixed driving mode.
BMW 528i xDrive
The Bmw 528i xDrive version (unavoidable for the Touring station wagon) is equipped with the same engine, but its power has been increased to 245 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque, and it only comes with an automatic transmission and as a completely new transmission xDrive. The "German" accelerates to 100 km / h in 6,3-6,6 seconds, with a maximum speed of 250 km / h and consumes 6,4 liters of gasoline in combined driving mode.
BMW 535i xDrive
Code bmw 535i xDrive, offers a 3,0-liter in-line six-cylinder with turbine and direct injection, which produces 306 hp and 400 Nm at 1200-5000 rpm. Accelerating to 100 km / h, the limousine takes 5,6 seconds, speed is limited to 250 km / h and fuel consumption does not exceed 7,6 liters.
BMW 550i xDrive
At the top of the range, is the Bmw 550i xDrive. The car is equipped with a 4.4-liter "monster" V8 twin-turbo and a direct injection system. It offers 449 hp and 650 Nm of torque, at 2000-4500 rpm. The result is: acceleration from zero to "hundred" in 4,4 seconds, a maximum of 250 km / h and 9,2 liters of fuel for combined driving.
Diesel engines - Bmw 5 F10
The most affordable Bmw 520d is equipped with a turbo four-cylinder engine with 2,0 liters and 190 "horsepower" with a torque of 400 Nm at 1750-2500 rpm. To deliver power to the rear wheels it comes with a manual or automatic transmission. Up to 7,7 in 7,9-233 seconds, max. speed goes up to 236-4,5 km / h. Fuel consumption varies from 4,7 to XNUMX liters.

Engine N57, 6-cylinder, 3-liter Bmw diesel, the construction is significantly modified compared to the older M57. It is a long-lasting and safe engine. Much like the smaller H47, the chain has been moved to the clutch side over time, so its replacement is very. Unfortunately, the 3-liter diesel generates a strong torque of 450 Nm, so the gearboxes are seriously exposed to the load. The only problem for the owners of the Bmw 525d, Bmw 530d and Bmw 535d versions may be the exhaust aftertreatment system, which requires AdBlue charging. Worth a look.

Bmw 5 F10 problems and failures
BMW 5 F10 in gasoline, sudden loss of power, and a failure lamp that indicate a failure of the engine, most often due to a failure of the high-pressure fuel pump.
With older 2.0 diesel engines marked N47, there are problems with tensioners and camshaft chains. The problem is manifested by noise under the hood. If the problem, ie the chain and tensioners, are not replaced in a short period of time, it can lead to serious engine failure.
2.0 diesel engines, in some cases, regeneration of DPF caused diesel fuel to leak into the engine oil. The problem occurs when the vehicle is driven predominantly in cities and when efficient regeneration at high engine speeds is not possible.
The engine may overheat due to problems between the electric water pump and the control module and the water pump itself.
On earlier models, the "check engine" light can come on and the engine may stop due to a problem with the original coil. BMW later replaced the original coils with Bosch coils.
The 'electronic steering lock' light illuminates and / or the vehicle will not start if the battery is empty at start-up.
Speedometer vibration and / or idle tachometer needles require reprogramming.
The flat tire warning light may illuminate if the sensor is not reset after changing the tire.
The fixing screws on the VANOS housing can become loose. There will be an internal oil leak, and then the valve opening will no longer adjust due to the reduced oil pressure. The vehicle then enters engine failure mode and the engine warning lamp illuminates permanently. For vehicles with N51 / N52 petrol engines, this message would appear on the next ignition; for the N55 petrol engine, the message would appear immediately.
A number of owners report damage to the air conditioner condenser as a result of the condenser being exposed to stones from the road while driving.
In the case of initial models, failures of the modules that control the lights occur. The problem is due to corrosion of the electronic circuit.
Increased number of rear camera problems.
Due to the high power consumption while the vehicle is stationary, the battery may be discharged for long periods of time.
A large number of owners have complained of a gas pedal failure.
Some owners report problems with the Idrive system and the multimedia unit.
Bmw 5 F11 station wagon version of the first series with rear air suspension, rear airbag failure prevented 100.000 km-
Chromium peeling on the door.

Quick wear of the luggage compartment cover.
A larger number of owners report more intensive wear of the front tires.
In the initial series, there are failures of the steering mechanism, which is often felt when the car turns and the appearance of strange sounds when driving the vehicle.
Driving noise is caused by factory racing tires that owners replace with classic ones.
