BMW model explanation?

Can someone give me a crash course on the models available? For example I know the 3 series are all of the 300 cars and the 5 series are 500 cars but what is the deal with the E series and that stuff? I am interested in cars from 95 to 2003. Anything would help. Thanks in advance.

    "Can someone give me a crash course on the models available?"

    -- Your best bet is to review this website for better understanding of the models. See link below.

    "For example I know the 3 series are all of the 300 cars and the 5 series are 500 cars but what is the deal with the E series and that stuff?"

    -- There is no E series in BMW, that is Mercedes you are thinking of.

    The basic idea is basically divided into this:

    Small sedan/coupe: 2, 3, 4

    Midsize sedan/coupe: 5, 6

    Large Sedan: 7

    BMW does offer:

    Sports wagon which are in 3 series for USA

    GranCoupe which are in 4, 6

    Sports Activity Vehicle: X1, X3, X5

    Sport Activity Coupe: X4, X6

    GranTurismo: 3 and 5 series.

    Coupes: 2, 4, 6 series.

    Convertible: 4, 6

    Roadster: Z4

    Now BMW does have the performance version called ///M, they are basically regular cars with more powerful engines, lighter, tuned suspensions and are costly. They do come in 3, 5, 6 series. No 7 series yet (in the works).

    BMW does offer an electric car, BMW i3 and i8.

    "I am interested in cars from 95 to 2003."

    -- The only difference is that 2 and 4 series did not exist back then. Nor did the electric cars from BMW. There was no X1, X3, X4, or X6.
