They are generally chassis codes.* If you venture over to Wikipedia.org, you will generally see multi-generation vehicles broken out into their respective chassis codes.* From the BMW 3 Series page (since you brought it up): Contents [*]1 Generations[*]2 E21, First generation, 1975"1983[*]3 E30, Second generation, 1984"1992[*]4 E36, Third generation, 1990"2000[*]5 E46, Fourth generation, 1998-2006[*]6 E90, Fifth generation, 2005"2012[*]7 F30, Sixth generation, 2012"[/list]etc. ps. E39 is a 5-series, Philistine!* :-)
