Legends never die. Rusty Slammington certainly hasn’t. The E28 BMW 5 Series has been featured on the internet pages of Jalopnik for the better part of a decade, but now it’s finally done, and it’s out there putting BMW nightmares into your children’s heads.
Tom Cruise is hard at work filming the sixth (sixth!) Mission: Impossible movie in Paris right now, and videos from the set show him doing his own stunts—which sadly involve badly damaging a fleet of puke-green E28 5 Series BMWs.
Just when you abandoned the idea of buying a German car with a diesel motor, BMW will bring over an oil-burning version of the recently updated 5 Series. When? We don’t know. Which one? That’s a bit clearer. It will not be the awesome quad-turbo M550d xDrive, but rather most likely be called the 540d.
If you were into cars around 2001, you probably remember how BMW commissioned famous directors and actor Clive Owen for The Hire, a series of action-packed web short films starring its cars. Fifteen years later, the BMW Films are back. This is “The Escape,” and it’s awesome.

When it debuted, the E60 wasn't just the ugliest 5 Series BMW had ever made — it was a strong contender for the ugliest car ever made. So why does it look so clean and handsome now?
These days, everyone loves to talk about the E30 M3 and how it's skyrocketing in value. Call me a heretic, but as much as I love E30s, I think I'd take the original E28 M5 instead. It's classy, it's ultra rare, it's got a beefy straight six, and it was supposedly the fastest sedan in the world when it debuted.
BMW must be panicked staring into the face of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class that looks well, different, than its predecessor. In the battle of German luxury car facelifts, though, the 2014 BMW 5-Series must be one of the most subtle. Seriously, I'm looking for the new.
