China getting Long Wheelbase BMW 5-Series
With an extra 140mm (5.5") between the wheels (with all of the added interior space behind the front seats), the additional length actually makes it an inch longer than the 7 Series sedan. Corinthian leather is nowhere to be found, but the standard "sumptuous Dakota leather" gives the larger interior a more luxurious ambience. Standard rear-seat entertainment systems on the 525Li and 535Li models will feature a DVD player and 8-inch monitor mounted to the front center console. The monitor is capable flipping down out of the way when not being used. A refrigerated storage box is also included in the rear of these models.
