BMW 5 Series (E39)

The BMW E39 is the fourth generation of BMW 5 Series, which was sold from 1995 to 2004. It was launched in the sedan body style, with the station wagon body style introduced in 1996. The E39 was replaced by the E60 5 Series in 2003, however E39 Touring models remained in production until May 2004.
The proportion of chassis components using aluminium significantly increased for the E39, and it was the first 5 Series to use aluminium for all major components in the front suspension or any in the rear. It was also the first 5 Series where a four-cylinder diesel engine was available. Rack and pinion steering was used for four- and six-cylinder models, the first time that a 5 Series has used this steering system in significant volumes. Unlike its E34 predecessor and E60 successor, the E39 was not available with all-wheel drive.
The high performance E39 M5 sedan was introduced in 1998, powered by a 4.9 L 299 cu in DOHC V8 engine. It was the first M5 model to be powered by a V8 engine.

1. Development and launch
Development for the E34s successor began in 1989, and ended in 1995. The final design by Joji Nagashima was selected in June 1992 and later frozen for production under new design chief Chris Bangle. With design selection in 1992, the series development phase began and took 39 months till start of production. The domestic German design patent was filed on 20 April 1994, with an E39 prototype.
In May 1995 BMW published the first official photos of the E39. The E39 premiered in September 1995 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. In December 1995 sales of sedan models began on the European mainland. Production of wagon/estate models began in November 1996.

2. Equipment
The E39 was one of the first vehicles alongside the E38 7 Series to have curtain airbags, which protect the occupants heads in a side impact. Standard equipment on the launch models included dual front and side airbags, pretensioners and load limiters for the front seatbelts, anti-lock brakes, traction control, power steering, and air conditioning. Satellite navigation was also available, initially using maps on CD-ROMs, then moving to DVD maps in 2002. Several models were available in Sports or Executive trim levels.
Special options available options on wagon models were either a roller blind or extending cargo cover with patrician net for the rear cargo area, roller sun visors for rear and side windows.
A "latent heat accumulator" was available as an option up until September 1999. The accumulator stores engine heat by converting a salt from solid to liquid form phase transition. The insulated tank can store heat for several days. The next time the vehicle is started, this heat is automatically used to reduce exhaust emissions by heating the engine up to operating temperature quicker, for cabin heating and window defrosting.
Separate to the latent heat accumulator is the Residual Heat function activated by a button labelled "REST", which allows the demister and cabin heater to use the heat of an engine that has recently been turned off using an electric pump to push hot coolant through the heater core.

3.1. Engines Petrol engines
At launch, the petrol engines consisted of the BMW M52 straight-6 and the BMW M62 V8. In late 1998, the "technical update" TU versions of these engines were introduced, introducing double VANOS to the M52 and single VANOS to the M62, primarily to increase torque at low rpm. For the facelift of the model range in the year 2000, the M52 was replaced by the BMW M54 straight-6 engine, however the M62TU remained in use for the V8 models. The M54B30 used in the 530i model topped the Wards 10 Best Engines list in 2002 and 2003.
Specifications for European models are shown below.,

3.2. Engines Diesel engines
The initial diesel models used the BMW M51 turbocharged straight-6 engine. In 1998, its successor the BMW M57 was introduced in the 530d model, however the BMW M51 engine continued to be used for two more years in the 525td and 525tds models.
In 1999, the M47 four-cylinder turbo-diesel was introduced in the 520d model, which is the only E39 model to use a four-cylinder engine.
Specifications for European models are shown below.,

4.1. Drivetrain Manual transmissions
Six-cylinder petrol models were fitted with either the 5-speed Getrag 250G or ZF 320Z S5-32 transmission, depending on the year and model. Diesel models with the M51 engine were fitted with the 5-speed ZF 260Z transmission, while the M57 diesel models were fitted with the 5-speed ZF 390 S5-39DZ transmission. V8 petrol models were fitted with the 6-speed Getrag 420G transmission.

4.2. Drivetrain Automatic transmissions
Some pre-facelift six-cylinder petrol models were fitted with the 4-speed GM 4L30-E A4S270R transmission. All other six-cylinder models were fitted with 5-speed transmissions, either the GM 5L40-E A5S360R, GM 5L40-E A5S390R, or ZF 5HP19 A5S325Z transmission, depending on the year and model. V8 petrol models were fitted with either the 5-speed ZF 5HP24 A5S440Z or the 5-speed ZF 5HP30 A5S560Z.

4.3. Drivetrain Differential ratios
The following differential ratios were used by the E39:
2.81: 540i manual
2.93: 528i/530i manual
3.07: 528i manual
3.46: 525i/528i/530i automatic
4.10: 528i automatic
3.15: 525i manual, 525i/540i automatic, M5 manual
3.23: 525i manual

5. Steering
Unusually, two different steering systems were used for the E39, depending on the engine. Models with four-cylinder and six-cylinder models use rack and pinion steering, the first time this system has been used in a 5 Series expect for the E34 525iX model. This system steers from the front of the axle.
Models with V8 engines use recirculating ball steering, as per the previous generations of 5 Series.

6. Chassis and body
Compared with its E34 predecessor, the E39s wheelbase grew by 68 mm 2.7 in and overall length by 55 mm 2.2 in. Torsional rigidity was increased over the E34 by 40 percent, which reduces body flex and allows the suspension to operate more accurately, also improving ride quality. Structural dynamics were also an objective of the body design, so the bodys frequencies for torsional twisting and bending are in separate ranges and above the natural frequency of the body. These frequencies are out of the range of engine and driveline vibrations, to avoid vibrations being amplified.
Due to a stiffer body shell, the weight of the chassis increased by 10 kg 22 lb, which is offset by the reduced weight of some aluminium suspension components. The wagon version was 85 mm 3.3 in longer than the previous generation E34 and weighed approximately 40 kg 88 lb more.

7. Suspension
The E39 was the first 5 Series to use aluminium for most components in the front suspension. The proportion of chassis components using aluminium significantly increased for the E39.
The front suspension consists of a double-jointed version of the MacPherson strut, with six-cylinder cars using an aluminium front subframe. Aluminium is used for the steering knuckles, outer strut tube and the spring pads, resulting in a weight saving of 21 kg 46 lb. V8 models also use aluminium in the steering box and several suspension links, to compensate for the heavier steel subframe.
The rear suspension consists of a four link design called "Z-link", which is similar to the system used by the E38 7 Series. The design minimises unintentional toe angle changes, which increases the stability of the handling.

7.1. Suspension Wagon self-levelling suspension
The Touring model was the first BMW model to use air suspension self-levelling suspension was first used by BMW for the E23 7 Series with a closed-loop nitrogen system that operated in parallel with the steel springs. This "self leveling" system controls the ride height of the rear of the vehicle and is designed to keep the center of the wheel a specified distance from the lip of the fender as the weight of the load in the cargo area varies.
Instead of using a traditional coil springs, the system uses pneumatic springs paired with air reservoirs that are pressurised by an air compressor. The system is controlled by two Hall effect sensors at the rear of the vehicle. These sensors tell the EHC electric height control if the rear ride height needs to be adjusted and adjust headlight height for vehicles equipped with Xenon headlights. When a door or the rear hatch is opened and then closed the control module will constantly monitor the input signals from the HALL sensors and will activate a correction if the ride height has change greater than 10mm. During normal operation the system stays online but does not adjust to conditions such as potholes.

8. M5 model
The M5 model of the E39 was introduced in 1998 at the Geneva Motor Show and was produced from 1998 to 2003. It was powered by the S62 V8 engine. All E39 M5 cars were sold in the sedan body style with a 6-speed manual transmission.

9.1. Special models Alpina B10 and D10
The Alpina B10 3.2, 3.3, V8 and V8S petrol-engined models were built in sedans and wagon body styles based on the E39 from January 1997 to May 2004.
The Alpina D10 was the first diesel model produced by Alpina and was introduced in February 2000. The engine, a 3.0 litre twin-turbocharged unit rated at 180 kW 241 hp and 500 N⋅m 369 lb⋅ft of torque, was based on the engine of the 530d model.

9.2. Special models Protection line
The 540i Protection light-armored vehicle was launched in Europe in September 1997 and in North America from January 1998. These models included aramid fiber armor, bullet-resistant glass that is coated with polycarbonate to reduce spall. The 540i Protection is rated to withstand the impact of handgun fire up to and including.44 Magnum, the glass is also protected from attack with blunt objects such as baseball bats and bricks. The additional security measures brought an additional weight of 130 kg 287 lb compared to the normal 540i sedan. on request, an intercom system was available and from January 1998 run-flat tyres were available.

10. Model year changes
