    After the launch of the 5 Series in 1972, the reorganisation of the model numbers continued with the first E21 3 Series models. From 1977, the redesigned two-door sports Saloon with its new body style was available for the first time with a newly-developed smaller six-cylinder engine.

    Every now and then we end up having an issue with a bit of a theme of an entirely unintentional nature and this month we’ve ended up with quite a few pieces about BMW’s family of X cars – 4x4s, soft-roaders or whatever you might like to call them. We were fortunate enough to drive AC Schnitzer’s fully-fettled take on the X5 M50d a couple of months back and following that we received invitations to the international launch of the X6 and to the UK launch of the X3. And to top it all the first pictures and information has just emerged on the new X5 M and X6 M that you can read about in our News pages. Now, we know that some of you aren’t all that enamoured with the ‘Sports Activity’ generation of machinery, but there’s simply no getting away from them – customers love them – as witnessed by the fact that nearly every third new BMW sold around the world is an X machine. And in the 15 years since the X5 was launched – our first drive of the first generation machine was on the cover exactly 15 years ago this month – BMW has sold a simply staggering 3.3 million X cars. They might not conform to everyone’s ideal of what a BMW should be but they have been a monumental success for the company.


    Four-wheel drive technology has come on in leaps and bounds since BMW first dipped its toe in the water with the E30 325iX all those years ago and while the ‘monster trucks’ might not be your cup of tea you can’t help but be impressed by the technology. Their twin-turbo V8s develop 575hp and 553lb ft of torque and can catapult them to 62mph from rest in an M4-rivalling 4.2 seconds. If that wasn’t enough they’re within a whisker of being as rapid as the M4 over the standing kilometre, too. In fact, they’re so fast, the poor old M5 that adorns our cover may not see which way they went! Truth be told, though, we’d rather be sitting behind the wheel of the iconic super saloon as for us it much better represents what BMW stands for than an X5 M. There’s something that’s so innately right about the E39 – from its superb proportions and subtle detailing to the sublime V8 under its bonnet. We don’t want to shout it too loudly, but we also think they represent a bit of a bargain these days and while prices of good examples are on the up they’re still eminently affordable. Yes, we know running costs will likely represent a small country’s GDP but it won’t depreciate – if anything it’ll go the other way – and it’s really not that difficult to make a good case of ‘man maths’ to get behind the wheel of one. I’d be sorely tempted if I hadn’t just sunk every penny I possess into an E24 M635CSi!
