ALWAYS START AT THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE

The strong heat in the summer and chilly mornings in the winter makes driving a car very uncomfortable. Thanks to the new Remote Engine Start feature, your vehicle now waits for you at the right temperature for when you get in: a warm interior when it is getting colder, pleasantly cool in hotter weather.

Do you know beforehand when you will start your vehicle the following morning? Use the timer feature to get your BMW ready at the temperature you feel most comfortable before you leave. Select your desired departure time while sitting on the sofa watching your favourite TV show. Or before you jump into the shower in the morning.

And if things are moving slower than planned? Not a problem, as the system shuts off automatically after 15 minutes. You can also be spontaneous of course: the feature starts immediately with just one click in the app and your BMW is at the perfect temperature in 15 minutes.

The Remote Engine Start feature is easy to operate using the My BMW App to program the time at which the engine starts and the air-conditioning system activates. You can also start the feature directly. Using these, you can program the time at which the engine starts and the air-conditioning system activates. You can also start the feature directly.
