Gear Shift Indicator

Well-timed gearshifts mean lower fuel consumption: the BMW gear shift indicator shows the ideal timing for each gear change on your vehicle's Info Display. By shifting gear at the recommended moment, you ensure your fuel is used more efficiently and emissions are minimised.

The digital engine management system monitors the driving situation and engine speed, and calculates which gear offers the most efficient performance. If for example a higher gear and lower engine speed would be more efficient, an arrow symbol and the recommended gear number appear on the Info Display between the tachometer and the speedometer.

The gear shift indicator adapts its recommendations to suit your current driving situation. When you're accelerating strongly, it allows the engine to reach a higher engine speed before recommending a gearshift. By helping you change gears at the right moment, the gear shift indicator leads to a significant reduction in fuel consumption and ensures complete and smooth power development.
