In my review of the F10 530d, I included a brief history of the 5er Series - and a slide show of all five previous generations of the 5er - including some shots of my own E60 550i.

The article is online here.

Make sure to go to the bottom to see the slide show(s).

Thanks for the review. It seems that BMW got the F10 just right ... we all are anxious to see it in the flesh.
