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.

 

BMW 5 SeThe BMW E60 is the BMW 5 Series automobile, replacing the BMW E39 in 2003. It was replaced by the BMW F10 in March 2010. The E60 was available in both sedan and station wagon (E61) platforms.
