Munich.
It is exactly 100 days until the first tee shot at the Ryder Cup in Rome (ITA) on Friday 29th September, in the prestigious team competition between the best golfers of hosts Europe and those of the United States. Customers of Worldwide Partner BMW who own a BMW 7 Series will now have the opportunity to follow every stroke and decision live. The Ryder Cup in-car app enables passengers in the second row to enjoy this sporting highlight on the BMW Theatre Screen. The live broadcasts and other on-demand content can also be accessed on the BMW Curved Display in the front row when the car is stationary. The free offer will be available in many markets around the globe* and also in many other BMW models**.

“The Ryder Cup is associated with unique emotions and great prestige – there is no other golfing event like it,” says Stefan Ponikva, Vice President BMW Brand Communication and Brand Experience. “The same is true of BMW vehicles, particularly the BMW 7 Series. The exclusive opportunity to combine sheer driving pleasure with the emotions of the Ryder Cup combines all this with the BMW Group’s aspiration to rethink the digital experience both inside and outside the car and to create innovative worlds of experience.”

Established in 1927, the biennial competition pits 12 of the top professional golfers from the United States and Europe against each other in a head-to-head match play competition and has become one of the world’s greatest sporting events, captivating an audience of millions around the globe.

“We want to bring the excitement of golf’s greatest team contest to as many people as possible and this new agreement will help us do just that, giving BMW drivers around the globe the chance to stay up to date with all the action in Rome, wherever they are,” said European team Captain Luke Donald during a press conference held at Golfclub München Eichenried today to mark the 100-day milestone. The iconic DP World Tour tournament, the BMW International Open, is being held there for the 34th time this week.

The BMW Theatre Screen transforms the rear of the new BMW 7 Series into an exclusive private cinema. The large 31.3-inch display offers first-class entertainment with Amazon Fire TV built-in, with the addition of the Ryder Cup in September and October. Since April 2023, Bundesliga content can also be streamed via the BMW Bundesliga In-Car App, which is in the Fire TV app store. Thanks to the on-board 5G-enabled antenna system, customers benefit from the best-possible streaming speeds.

For safety reasons, the BMW Curved Display is unable to play premium sport content while driving. However, streaming is possible for rear-seat passengers while the vehicle is on the move.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at www.bmw.de/wltp.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the “Manual on the fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new cars”, available at sales outlets free of charge, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen and at https://www.dat.de/co2/.
