If the car in the picture is yours, it is an E60. The E39 is the shape before yours.

If it looks like Dame Edna, it's an E60.

I never thought of the E60 looking like Dame Edna. Dame Edna is a woman on the outside and a man on the inside. The E60 is a beast on the outside and lined with dead cow on the inside.

Back when the E60 first came out, Roundel had a pic of Dame Edna with those glasses she (he) wore and compared them to the E60's headlights.

Spot on I tell ya.
