January 2008 marks another milestone in the successful BMW history. On this day, the plant produced the BMW 5 - an equally frugal 530d sedan as dynamic in Carbon Black Metallic.

It all began in the year 1972: It was the first generation BMW 5 at the International Automobile Exhibition in Frankfurt - immediately after the conclusion of the Olympic Games and the completion of the BMW skyscraper. The BMW 5 Series was the first time a new coding - the first digit was for the car, the second and third for the engine and the engine capacity. The new two-litre four-cylinder cars contributed accordingly, the model designation BMW 520 - pronounced "twenty-five". The first units were still in Munich's main plant built before production in the autumn of 1973 in the then newly formed BMW Dingolfing plant in shifts. Even with the first generation of the BMW 5 series (699,094 copies), the company could be production volume of cars in this class more than doubled. Not only domestic customers showed great interest in the BMW 5: About half of the BMW 5 were exported.

In the summer of 1981, the second generation of BMW (722,328 units), the BMW 5 Series. For the BMW revolutionary history was the decision in 1983 with the BMW 524td in the fiercely competitive market for diesel automobiles enter.

In January 1988, finally followed by the third generation (1333438 units), for the first time in the history of this series BMW only with 6-cylinder engines started. The term "touring" extended the BMW AG in 1991 with a combined model of its model range.

The 1995 presented fourth generation (1,470,757 units) continued in its class standards in terms of static and dynamic torsional stiffness.

As the first automobile manufacturer in the world, the company at the current fifth generation of the BMW 5 Series (previously manufactured nearly 1 million units) a new form of light industry. Thus, the entire front structure made of aluminum, resulting in a maximum axle load distribution at low weight. Moreover, the BMW 5 Series since 2007 with EfficientDynamics measures. As a result, the consumption, while the typical BMW momentum is maintained. It is especially the new BMW 520d of the model year 2008, as the first vehicle in its class less than 140g of CO2 per kilometer ausstößt. With an average consumption of 5.1 litres per 100 km achieved by a 130 KW/177 horsepower four-cylinder diesel engine-driven limousine a CO2 figure of 136g per kilometre.

The production of premium vehicles requires dedicated staff: The BMW Dingolfing site with approximately 20,000 employees is the largest production site of the BMW Group and produces next to almost all models of the BMW 5 Series and BMW 7 Series BMW 6-series, as well as the bodies-in-white for Rolls-Royce.
