Taking design cues from the 7 Series, the new BMW 520i now gets a new kidney grille, a new pair of LED headlights with a different set of LED daytime running lights.
The bumpers are also redesigned to give a more angular look. Its unique set of 19-inch light-alloy wheels add to the commanding look of this high-end sedan.
The rear profile of this high-end sedan exudes an elegant look with its new design elements.
With a single C-shaped look, BMW replaced the old LED pipes of the BMW 5 series with a new LED pattern. The rear bumpers have a slight tweak with the repositioning of the corner reflectors.
BMW Individual High-gloss Shadowline Exterior
Showcasing a combined elegance and sharper styling, the BMW Individual high-gloss Shadowline exterior gives this new 5 Series a more elegant and sportier image.
It features the new twin-kidney grille frame, high-gloss black struts, and black chrome finished tailpipe. Its sporty new look is further complemented by the incorporated slimmer L-shaped LED daytime driving lights.
BMW 5 Series Interior
Dual-zone Automatic Climate Control
Providing you with excellent comfort during your travel, Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control enables both the driver and the passenger to set a specific temperature that they prefer in their zone.
Each zone has its temperature control section on the centre control interface.
With an 11 light design, the ambient lighting creates a perfect atmosphere for every trip. As soon as you enter the cabin, a light red glow spilling softly from the inside panel and around the seats will welcome you.
This feature also makes a quiet and cosy environment for relaxed driving.
With BMW’s wireless charging, making your phone’s battery topped up is now an easy task. Just place your mobile on the wireless charging pad on the centre console for a boost of power.
This charging pad is made of a non-slip silicone surface to keep your phone from sliding around as you drive.
Electrically-adjusted Sport Seats
Designed to provide more support during spirited driving, the electrically-adjusted sports seats now include a memory function.
These sport seats also feature adjustable side and lumbar supports to keep you snugly in position and comfortable.
It also offers a large range of height and length adjustments for choosing an optimal seating position and saving it using the memory function.
Multifunction Steering wheel
Covered in genuine leather, this multifunctional steering wheel enables you to control in-car features easily without the need to take your hands off the wheel. It also comes with gearshift paddles to quickly change the gears.
12.3-inch Digitized Instrument Display
The highly digitised 12.3-inch instrument display in the new BMW 520i is one of the major improvements made by BMW, making it more precise, with the graphics easier to read.
It also displays various helpful information, such as how far you have travelled, your average fuel consumption, and your running speed.
Exterior of the BMW 5 Series
Adaptive LED Headlights
Illuminating the road ahead, the adaptive LED headlights dynamically modify their behaviour based on road conditions, approaching traffic and vehicle speed using a matrix technology.
It also comes with a high-beam assistant that automatically switches between high beam to low beam to protect other drivers from your dazzling light
Soft Close Function
The soft-close feature aims to close the doors for you gently and quietly. Simply push the door close, and the system will take care of the rest without making any distracting noises.
When the sensor detects a desire to close the door, the electric motor kicks in, and the lock grabs the handle. Its job is to tighten the door thoroughly while making a hardly audible noise.
Showcasing convenience on a new level, the automatic operation of the tailgate is an extension to the comfort access system that allows you to easily open the tailgate with a simple kicking motion on the sensor of the rear bumper.
Such a feature makes it easy to load up your car, and simply press the button in the trunk lid after loading to lower it slowly.
The all-new BMW 5 Series comes with a complete set of distinct light-alloy wheels specifically designed that adds a more athletic look to its overall image.
It is equipped with different sizes of wheels such as the 19-inch V-spoke Style Light Alloy Wheels on the 520i variant and the 20-inch M Y-Spoke Style Wheels on the 530i variant.
Parking Assistant Plus
Parking and manoeuvring is now an easy task as the new 5 Series includes the parking assistant plus with 3D Surround View, 3D Remote and a rearview camera.
It comes with a surround-view camera with linear guidance in the touchscreen display that automatically parks the vehicle parallel or perpendicular.
The system works by measuring potential spaces while driving at a low speed.
With the electronically Folding Mirrors, you can now adjust the view from your side without leaving your seat. It conveniently prevents damage to the exterior mirrors, especially when moving through small spaces.
This function comes with an auto-dimming mirror feature for the driver’s exterior mirror and the inside rear-view mirror.

BMW 5 Series Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most common questions and answers regarding purchasing a new BMW 5 Series from us.
What is VAC-Ready?
VAC stands for ‘Vitas Approval Code.’ It is a document issued by the Land Transport Authority that certifies that a car has passed all regulatory tests, inspections and is ready for registration to be used on Singapore’s roads. In the Parallel Importer industry, this code gives peace of mind to buyers as it ensures that the exact vehicle that buyers are purchasing has already undergone testing for approval.
This also means that the vehicle is physically available and ready in Singapore for delivery. All that’s left is to register the COE, and it can be immediately used on the roads.
When you purchase from any parallel importer in Singapore, it’s important you check that they have VAC-Ready stock, so it cuts down on any waiting time or uncertainty.
Some parallel importers in the past, unfortunately, have been unable to deliver vehicles, or in worst-case scenarios, shut down and walked away with customer deposits.
We register and deliver well over a hundred new vehicles every month and have had a 100% delivery rate for the past 30 years since 1989.
What does ‘Parallel Import’ Mean?
Parallel imported cars are vehicles shipped straight from their brand’s origin country and then sold in other countries. Parallel Importers, also known as PIs, are alternate retailers and dealers of various brands of vehicles. Often Parallel Importers carry a wide selection of brands and models.
In terms of operations, there’s little difference between a parallel importer and an authorized distributor. Both entities import cars from the same countries or from where the manufacturer is located.
Vehicles from authorized distributors tend to cost more as they carry a higher overhead than parallel importers – these overheads include fancy showrooms, a much larger payroll, advertising and media costs, and more.
The cars themselves typically don’t differ in terms of specifications and options. Here at VINCAR, we offer vehicles directly from their origin countries at competitive prices while passing on significant customer savings. We can also provide and tailor flexible financing plans, services, and value-added options to owners while ensuring we can provide competent technical support for our customer’s cars.
Unlike Authorised Dealers, we are a lot more flexible in our approach to the type and brand of vehicle you wish to own under one brand experience.
Over 30% of new car purchases at VINCAR every year are existing customers looking to upgrade or replace their vehicles, and we are happy to provide a hassle-free seamless experience every time.
What BMW 5 Series Models do you carry?
Models not listed here may not be readily available and will require some time to be brought into the country (30-45 days). If you are keen on a vehicle that’s not listed here, just ask us – and we’ll do our best glad to make it happen.
Can you bring in a car if it’s not listed in your BMW 5 Series Collection?
Just ask us, and we’ll do our best to see if you can import the vehicle of your preference.
We import hundreds of vehicles every month and are familiar with all customs regulations, documentation, approvals, logistics, restrictions, and registration procedures.
When can I expect to receive my car when I order it?
The fastest we have ever registered and delivered a new vehicle is within seven working days. This is assuming all LTA inspections, financing for passenger and vintage cars there, and insurance approvals can be processed without any delays.
The typical delivery period for most new car deliveries is within 10-14 days. If your preferred vehicle is not in Singapore yet, it may take between 30-45 days for it to arrive. Contact your appointed relationship manager or us for more details before booking your next vehicle.
I need a vehicle urgently from overseas, can you speed up the process?
Sure, we provide priority air-freight shipment for some vehicles regularly for some of our clientele. This service will incur additional fees. Contact your relationship manager for more details regarding delivery estimates.
Can you import a used BMW 5 Series from overseas for me?
Yes, we can. We can import in a used BMW 5 Series as long it is up to a maximum of 3 years old.
There are some regulations regarding importing used vehicles, primarily considering that there are shipping and customs costs – including a S$10,000 surcharge (by customs).
There is also a 20% excise duty for passenger and vintage cars on the vehicle’s cost. You may also need to pay compliance fees to ensure the vehicle passes LTA’s regulations. These may include tinted windows, unapproved strobes, fittings, etc.
I saw a car listed for sale on an overseas website in Japan / United Kingdom / Hong Kong etc. Can you help me import it in?
Yes, we can assist you with the purchase and import of the vehicle. We can confidently manage all customs documentation, processing, and logistic matters about the car being brought into Singapore. Please note a service fee will apply on top of the vehicle costs. Other fees may apply.
Contact us for a quotation about this service.
Can I pre-order a BMW 5 Series, which is not released yet?
Yes, we can. We can place your order on our priority list and purchase the first vehicle available (to your specifications) the moment it is made available.
Can I utilize a BMW 5 Series for private hire purposes (Grab Car Rental or Gojek)?
No, we do not have BMW 5 Series for Grab Car Rentals. We recommend that you visit our Grab Car Rental Page for more information and details about the type and model of vehicle you can utilize for Grab Car Rental usage.
Can I rent a BMW 5 Series for short-term purposes (from 1 day to 7 days etc)?
Unfortunately, at this time, we do not provide short-term rental services.
Can I lease a BMW 5 Series under my name (or company)?
Yes, we can. You can lease your next BMW 5 Series with use under your name or Corporate/company entity. Our Car Leasing programs are for a minimum of 12 months. Most car leases taken up by our clientele are between 12-36 months.
For Car Leasing requirements, please read more on our Car Leasing page.
What should I do if there is a problem (technical issue / global recall issue) with my car within the warranty period?
Just bring your BMW 5 Series back to us, and we will be able to repair or service it at our dedicated in-house servicing centre.
We also keep parts, components, and accessories – together with an experienced team of specialized mechanics, technicians, and operation managers to deal with any major safety recalls or service campaigns from BMW 5 Series.
What should I do if my car breaks down or has an accident on the road?
Stay calm and don’t panic. You can call the support number available on the VINCAR decal located on your windshield’s left side. Our support team will be on standby 24/7 to provide you with the necessary roadside assistance and towing support.
Do you sell used/pre-owned BMW 5 Series?
Yes, we do. Check out our pre-owned section for a collection of pre-owned used cars.
Can I trade in my BMW 5 Series to VINCAR?
Sure, you can. We can provide a competitive trade-in value for your car. Just contact us and provide the necessary details.
Our team will be able to provide you with more details and information within a day.
What accessories will come with my BMW 5 Series?
Upholstery, fittings, and accessories can differ from model to model. We advise that you ask your relationship manager about the available options and accessories that come with your purchase. All items will be indicated clearly in your sales agreement.
Can you provide a 100% loan for your BMW 5 Series?
No. The maximum loan amount as per financing regulations set by the Monetary Authority of Singapore is 70% if the vehicle’s open market value is less than S$20,000 or 60% if the vehicle’s open market value is more than $20,000.
For more details, you can read this article “Rules for Motor Vehicle Loans.”
Can you provide a 10-Year financing loan tenure for your BMW 5 Series?
No. The maximum loan tenure is seven years for private passenger vehicles and up to 10 years for private hire vehicles.
Other dealers and parallel importers are offering Zero-Money Down, 10-Year financing, and services for their cars. Why can’t you?
As the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true – it usually is. Some dealerships, especially newer and smaller parallel importers, often dangle enticing deals, discounts, and offers on social media to entice buyers to contact them.
Often such schemes lead to disappointment as the dealer may require a high down-payment amount or require the user to ‘top-up’ for COE or quote a COE amount that is not realistically biddable.
Here’s an example. A dealer advertises a car price that is $15,000 below standard market rates. After contacting the dealer – he/she will say that the expected COE price is expected to be at X amount (which is lower than the average), and at this point, you will be pressured to leave a deposit with the dealer to secure your booking at this ‘special’ price.
When the upcoming COE exercise is completed, and COE prices are nowhere near the promised rate, the dealer will ask you to top up more to register your car, and else you would forfeit your booking deposit. We have seen many such examples over the years by many unscrupulous individuals and companies.
Any advertisements you see on Social Media from other dealers promising 10-Year Financing and Zero money down are also a direct violation of the Monetary Authority Of Singapore (MAS)’s regulations on “Rules for Motor Vehicle Loans.”
I see similarly named car dealerships/parallel importers in Singapore. Are they related to you?
VINCAR Pte Ltd operates under one single brand name, with only one subsidiary (VINCAR Rental and Leasing Pte Ltd).
We are aware of other parallel importers who often set up Facebook Pages and advertisements with similar-sounding names and derivatives to capitalize on our brand name.
Unfortunately, this practice leads to confusion for new car buyers who get tricked into a bait-and-switch situation.
If you have previously contacted such entities, a quick way to check is to ask if ‘XXX’ company is named ‘XXX.’ If the salesman on the line refuses to answer, dodges the question, or asks you just to visit the showroom address – without providing the company’s name, do be wary.
If the showroom you have visited does not match the original brand name introduced to you, take it as a big red flag. If these companies are willing to mislead you to visit them with a different name, they will likely not be trustworthy with other affairs.
Can I test-drive a car before I commit?
For specific models and subject to vehicle availability, we may allow test drives. Please check with your relationship manager or contact us first.
What kind of warranty do I get?
All new vehicles sold by VINCAR by default comes with a 5-year or 100,000km mileage warranty – whichever comes first. Your vehicle’s warranty can be extended to 10 years.
Please check with the sales agreement to see all terms and conditions regarding warranty and service details. All vehicles are serviced in-house at our dedicated car servicing centre located at 24 Leng Kee Road.
Does the warranty cover maintenance?
Typically, vehicle warranties do not cover maintenance fees as they are considered as two separate items. However, during our promotional periods, we may include complimentary service packages.
Check with our sales department for more information regarding active promotions or packages.
Can I purchase an extended warranty from VINCAR?
Yes, subject to terms and conditions. Do check in with our sales team to see what active extended warranty packages we have at the moment that we can assist you with.
Can you deliver the vehicle directly to my home or office address after purchase?
Yes, we can. Contact your sales representative for more details.
Where are your showrooms located?
We have showrooms in 3 locations across Singapore. Two of them are in the Leng Kee Location, 1 in the East (Ubi).
Our Flagship showroom is located at 24 Leng Kee Road, 159096.
Our Pre-Owned showroom is at 237 Alexandra Rd, The Alexcier, Singapore 159929.
