At the push of a button, the Ambient Air Package fills the interior of the car with a subtle, pleasant fragrance. Eight fragrances, belonging to four themes, are available, all specially composed for the vehicle. Two can be used alternately in the vehicle at a time. The intensity of the fragrance can be set to three levels. This function can be activated via the iDrive Controller and the iDrive menu, or directly via a button on the air conditioning control unit. The function is shown on the Control Display.
While the fragrance is being released, air from the exterior is filtered and purified. Air quality is also significantly improved through oxygen ionisation.
The eight fragrances are divided into four categories: "Blue Suite" with fresh water fragrances, "Green Suite" with fresh plant fragrances, "Golden Suite" with warm, rich fragrances and "Authentic Suite" with natural fragrances. All of the fragrances last for roughly six months with average use and can be ordered as Original BMW Accessories.
