The BMW 5 Series and X5 - A History of Production Cars and Tuner Specials, 1972-2008

BMW is a company associated with motoring firsts. The very idea of a sports sedan was merely a novelty until BMW introduced the 5 series in 1972. As BMW's "middle child," the 5 series has drawn features from the company's smallest and largest models, establishing a reputation for performance and practicality through multiple generations.

This book covers the history of the 5 series midsize sedan and the related X5 SUV from September 1972 to the E60's major makeover for 2008 and the recent development of the E70 X5. Specific mechanical, electronic and cosmetic changes are described, including the time of and reasons for their introduction. Several aspects of BMW's corporate history and technically related models such as the 6-series are also described, as are aftermarket modifications by Alpina, Hartge, and other specialist BMW tuners and speed shops.

Kfz. 1, 2, 3 & 4 : Light Off-Road Passenger Cars

"The leichter geländegängiger Personenkraftwagen, or l.gl. Einheits-Pkw - light off-road passenger cars - were manufactured by Stoewer, Hanomag and BMW from 1936 to early 1944. The superstructures were delivered by ten different companies and were identical from each manufacturer.

Early versions had both 4-wheel drive and steering which later was dropped to just 4 wheel drive and front wheel steering. These off road cars were used by the German Army in four distinct versions with the designations Kfz. 1, Kfz. 2, Kfz. 3 and Kfz. 4.

This new photo-album in the "Camera On" series contains over 120 photos of these vehicles during WWII.
