now that the E-code for Bimmers is coming to an end (BTW, the E stands for Evolution, for those who didn't know), what does the F-Code stands for?? i think the first code name will be F10 for the new 5series in the new code, does it stand for Formula???

E stands for Entwicklung, (Development in english)

F is the letter after E :P I don't think it stands for anything else.

thanks for the english lesson... LOL we are both correct the E stands for "E" stands for Entwicklung, German for development or evolution.
If it does not stand for anything then Formula is a good start, but it might just stand for Future model

Future model wouldn't make sense because they wouldn't change the letter when the car comes out.

I don't see why they couldn't use triple digits. They did once before, so why not do it again?

it would sound sound gay pronouncing E110.
it might clash against their tripple digits cars in future, e.g 1 series, 135 then E135 something like that.

or there might be other brands which have already used the letter 'E' as the code for something

they should just make it a lower case e.
