The BMW 5 Series History. The 1st Generation (E12).

With the BMW 5 series E12, the first generation, we start our six part series about BMWs successful upper class model. In the seventies the 5 series was a statement in the upper midrange class. Take a look behind the scenes of its development with BMW insiders.

My 2nd BMW was a '75 530i. Great car except for the a/c. Worst a/c of any car I've ever owned.
