Sorry if the answer to this is buried somewhere in the vast forum,

Where do the monikers (F07, F10...) come from? Is there a meaning?

FWIW, they appear to be internal factory designations for model ranges, where F07 refers to the 5xx GT series.

chassis code, generation specific

BMW F07 ***8212; (2009) 5 GranTurismo
BMW F10 ***8212; (2010) 5 Series
BMW F11 ***8212; (2011) 5 Series Touring/Sports Wagon

BMW E60 ***8212; (2004***8211;present) 5 Series
BMW E61 ***8212; (2004***8211;2007) 5 Series Touring/Sports Wagon
