I'm still confused
The picture you showed a 2004 as being a e60
You then listed evrery model 5 except the 530 as being a and e39 My car is a 2003 not a 2004. It looks the the first picture monus the black tim.

Also these number musthave a meaning which was my original question
Sorry to be a pita
I'm trying to come up with a clever vanity tag for my car, I thought that my 03 530i was the last e39, but you say it's the first e60

LAST-E39

2003 is the last year of E39. 2004 begins the E60. The 2004 models have been out a few months in the US.
