newbie to bmw's

Hey guys,
Noob here, just have several questions...
I'm interested in the 2006 M5.
What is the difference between the E34, E39 and E60? Which ones are available in the U.S.? Also, what is the engine code for the 5.0L v10?
Thanks in advance and sorry for the redundant q's.

e34 is the old M5 from 91-like 9whatever. e39 is 00-04 and e60 is 09+. All those were oddball figures as this international smog seems to be clogging my brain.

You're looking at the e50 m5. Dont know the engine code. All were in the US.

Essentially, yes, the only exception being the station wagon version, which is labled as E61.

Interesting, thanks.
I've just being doing some research on the 2006 5 series in general and the BMWusa.com website calls the wagon 530xi same as the sedan. Other websites call it the 530xit. Anyone have any input on this?
Also, the 550i...which of these is available in the US:
N62/B36
N62TU/B40
N62TU/B48

Thanks in advance for your input/info

Well, I don't know what other websites call what, or why, so I can't answer that...

As for the engines, I have never heard of the N62TU anything... I know of the N62, but I don't know what that TU is/stands for.

As far as I know, the
N62/B36
N62/B40
N62/B48
are all available in US markets, but the B48 is the only one that comes in a 550i. Though the others may fit.
