BMW 530i

The in-line-six-cylinder BMW E34 530i was manufactured and was made available in 1988. It had a M30B30 3.0 liter in-line-6-cylinder engine producing 188 bhp or 140 kW.

This European version of the 530i was discontinued in 1990. In 1992, a new V8 cylinder 530i model was introduced later in 1994.

It was set to replace the 535i and had the new BMW M60, 32 valve DOHC 3.0 litre V8 engine produced 218 bhp or 163 kW and was also offered as a touring or station wagon versions.

The BMW 5 Series cars were manufactured since 1972. The car, now in its sixth generation, is sold in a sedan and touring version and styles. The 5-series range represents about 50% of BMW’s profits and is their second best-selling car after the BMW 3 series which takes first place in worldwide sales and production.

The 5 Series range of cars got the name by being the 5th of the "new series" cars after the V8 / Isetta ‘era’ and was built to replace the older New Six sedan range of cars built by the automaker.

There have been six generations of the 5-Series to date. To differentiate between them, they are referred to by their unique stamped chassis numbers: EXX or FXX. The 5 Series began the BMW tradition of being named with a three-digit number. The first digit 5 represents the model, and the following two digits represent the size of the engine which is the main distinguishing difference and additional letters or words may be added to the end of the three-digit number to define the fuel type which could denote a petrol or diesel engine or transmission numbers and body style details. The 'i' usually means fuel injection on all models of BMW cars.
