On the X7 it is, but on the 5-series in the US it is not normally available, as it requires the 4-Zone Climate Control, which is not an available option except on the M5. There are reports that some people were able to have their dealer go through the regional rep with BMW NA to get permission to add it on the build order, but most were not able to.

It is only available on certain models in the US. I know the 7 series is one of them. It is not available on the 5 series.

It is available on the 5 series in Canada though.

I ordered ambient air.

I used for 2 weeks and stopped as it is cancelling out the "new odor" of the vehicle.

Ambient Air will be useful after several years when the odor/smell of the car is getting old/worse. Once the car starts to smell unpleasent, I will activate ambient air.

If you think you will replace your G30 after 2-3 years, its a waste of money.
If you keep your cars for many years, order ambient air package.

Remember not to use it in the first 12 months as the ambient air cancels out the original smell of the G30.
