Here’s How You Cool Down Your BMW 5-Series In The Summer

Perhaps the only thing harder to tolerate than freezing your behind off while you’re waiting for your car to heat up, is having to sweat it out in the middle of a heat wave waiting for the A/C to cool down the cabin.

In the all-new BMW 5-Series, ensuring that the car’s interior remains at a comfortable temperature in the summer is pretty easy, as demonstrated with the help of an M550i xDrive.

It all starts with you raising the sun blind before you leave the car. The G30 5er comes equipped with a Comfort Ventilation function, found in My Vehicle – Vehicle Settings – Climate Functions. Once you click it, you can simply check a box to activate the system and then set a specific departure time on any given day or days. The 5-Series will then ventilate the cabin at your selected time, although the car needs to be started at least once between two departure times.

The more options you purchase, the cooler you’re gonna be

If you have ventilated seats, you can also select a specific temperature for whenever you might want your seats ventilated automatically. But that’s not all. Even if you already have a time set for ventilation, you can override it by using the BMW Connected app, where all you need to do is press and hold the ‘Activate Now’ button.

    another tip: buy the car in silver and not in black

  • Alex Hanson

    My ten year old 5 series does this. This is news to you?

    • Day_Trader

      Oh pleeeeeaaaaase. You don’t lie dawg.

      • Knotmyrealname

        Well it was certainly available on my old 2011 F10. NOT a new feature.

  • TheBelltower

    Does it actually run the A/C, or does it just run the ventilation? The i3 can run the air conditioner during a programmed time or via the app. It’s a handy feature in the summer, but EV’s don’t require an engine to run the climate systems.

    And I use it in the summer. Works well.

    • Romain AA

      thanx for the testimony. does it work well in the winter too?

      • Leo76

        I didn´t test in in winter. I live in Sweden 🙂
        this function is for cooling down the coupé.
        Often, I start it via app BMW Connected.

  • ctk4949

    Or you can remote start your car before you plan to leave?? Ive had this feature since 2015. 😛

  • brn

    or I can press the remote start button on my phone when I”m thinking about heading out. It’ll start my 2013 Ford and start cooling.
