Initial release

Alpina B5 (2005 -)

In 2005 Alpina introduced the B5 powered by a supercharged 4.4 litre V8 producing 500 hp (373 kW; 507 PS) and 700 Nm (520 lbft) of torque. It was available only with 6 speed ZF transmission. Top speed is 314 km/h (195 mph) and 0–100 km/h time is 4.7 seconds - same as the E60 M5.

M5

The BMW M5 is powered by a 5 litre V10 engine. Revving to 8250 rpm, the engine produced 507 hp (378 kW) at 7750 rpm and 520Nm (383 lbft) at 6100 rpm. 0–100 km/h time is 4.7 seconds (although this has proven to be a conservative number. Tests have shown it to be capable of 4.1 seconds with the 6-speed manual and possibly faster with SMG's launch control program) while top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).

2008 BMW 5-Series Security interior

It is an armoured version of BMW 5 Series sedan with ballistic protection level B4. It included a choice of 367 PS (270 kW; 362 hp) V8 (from BMW 550i) and 258 PS (190 kW; 254 hp) I6 (from BMW 530i) engines, high-performance fibre composites (aramid, polyethylene) and special-purpose steel reinforced chassis, 21 millimetres thick glass with a polycarbonate layer for the windows.
The vehicle was unveiled in 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show.

BMW 5 Series Authority Vehicle

It is a version of 5 Series vehicle designed for police forces, fire services and emergency rescue services. It included firearm bracket in the rear center armrest.

Development

The development programme for the E60 began in 1997, concluding in 2003. The final design, penned by David Arcangeli under the directorship of Chris Bangle, was approved in 2000 and German design patents filed on April 16, 2002.

Comparison with predecessor

While its predecessor shared many similarities to the 7 series, the E60 was different from other BMWs in production at the time. The E60 is longer, wider, heavier and higher than the previous model, which translates into more interior and trunk space. The E60 introduced a different design language to the 5-series line with a much rounder body and an interior, while not driver-oriented like in the E39, is flat like in the E65 7-series with an LCD display, basic buttons and the iDrive system.

Aftermarket companies

The E60 received much acclaim from the automotive community, prompting aftermarket companies that specialized in BMW modifications to produce aftermarket parts for the E60. Companies produced copies of the M-Sport parts for the E60. Hamann, AC Schnitzer, Hartge, Dinan parts also started to flood the market as these companies realized the parts were in high demand. Soon enough, many companies started to make replica parts that were being produced, again due to the high demand for inexpensive quality parts. Furthermore, many performance companies also started to produce parts to increase the power of the already swift E60.

Platform derivates

A derivative of the E60 is the E63/E64 which forms the iteration of the 6 Series coupe. A factory-stretched long-wheelbase version of the E60 5-Series was offered in China, as a response to the Audi A6 L. It offered much of the rear legroom of a large executive saloon (e.g. BMW 7-Series or Mercedes-Benz S-Class), but in a cheaper, simpler model. As of 2009, trim levels included the 520Li, 523Li, 525Li, and 530Li.

Technology

BMW 530xi wagon
E60 body was made using aluminium for the front of the car, and steel for the passenger cabin and rear thus making 50:50 weight balance. E60 was available with BMW's xDrive system in 525xi, 528xi, 530xi, 535xi, 525xd and 530xd models.

Equipment

Its iDrive system has been simplified from the system in the 7 Series. It can be ordered with a full array of options such as active cruise controlhead-up display, active steering, and the Harman Kardon Logic7 stereo system. Other available equipment in E60 was ESP, BMW Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Voice Control, Adaptive Headlights, BMW Night Vision, Active Headrests, Xenon headlights, Run-flat tyres and other equipment typical for luxury cars. Equipment in E60 was always upgrading, Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, Adaptive Headlights, LED rear lights, Lane Departure Warning, Brake Force Display was available few years after the introduction.

Safety

Euro NCAP scores
Adult Occupant:

4/5
Child Occupant:

4/5
Pedestrian:

1/4
Initially the 5-series received a three-star rating for adult occupants. However changes were made to the steering column, footrest, door trims, door latch, airbags and electronic software and the car was retested achieving its four-star rating. BMW claims the modifications improved the car's EuroNCAP score, not the vehicle's safety; consequently BMW chose not to recall the earlier-built cars.

Rollover:

The American Insurance Institute of Highways Safety (IIHS) gives the 5-series a "Good" overall rating in frontal collisions but a "Marginal" overall rating for side impact collisions. The IIHS reported their side impact test would likely cause driver related rib fractures and/or internal organ injuries. The IIHS tests were conducted on models built after May 2007; these models had modifications to improve side impact safety.

2007 update

The LCI (Life Cycle Impulse) model was released in 2007. This LCI model included a facelift of the front and rear end of the vehicle. This update included a new front bumper, fog lights, headlights, tail lights and trunk. The interior was also slightly remodelled as well and included changes to door handles, position of power window buttons, updated iDrive with shortcut buttons(for late 2008) models, sleeker gear change lever for the auto transmission. Besides these changes, the 5 Series gained new engines, transmission and an updated iDrive from the BMW X5.

520i

The basic model is available from the start of production. It used M54B22 engine from BMW E39, it was replaced by the 523i in 2005. Two years later 520i badge returns with four-cylinder N43 engine to more efficiently while producing the same amount of power.
