As part of a running change to the 2017 BMW 7 Series range, the remote parking feature that was previously only available overseas has now been included for the Australian market.

Via the Display Key, drivers will be able to pull in and out of narrow parking spaces from outside the vehicle, using the key like a remote control to slowly move the vehicle forwards or backwards.

The new feature will arrive as standard equipment on all 7 Series variants, with the exception of the recently introduced 740e iPerformance plug-in hybrid.

Owners who have already taken delivery of a new 7 Series won’t be able to upgrade or retrofit the system to an existing vehicle.

BMW also advises that the system should not be used in West Australia, so as not to fall foul of the WA Road Traffic Code.

Also added to the standard equipment list, BMW’s Ambient Air system, which is designed to filter and purify outside air before entering the cabin, providing oxygen ionisation to reduce occupant fatigue.

Previously an $800 option, the Ambient Air system is also able to disperse two alternating fragrances (from a range of eight) into the cabin.



730d - $217,455
740i - $224,155
740e - $229,000
740Li - $237,955
750i - $289,315
750Li - $312,415

Prices include LCT, but exclude on-road costs
