I think it's all a crap-shoot. The 1-800 number was more accurate than the website for me right up to the last step -- then the website changed and the phone system didn't. The website showed my X5...

This is not correct. BMW sells a Sirius Satellite Radio installation kit that can be installed to add satellite radio to your X5. Not cheap, but less expensive than the full Premium Package. Talk...

When you display the xDrive screen, are there two options to scroll between (little icons on the upper left of the display)? That's how I get the torque vectoring to show on mine, but I also have...

The two inner bulbs are purely decorative, not functional. High beams activate the outer two lamps. At least I know that was true of the E70 model (I had two). The same is NOT true of my F15, but...

If anyone who opts for the black grills want to sell me your old chrome accent (from the luxury line) or silver matte (from the xLine) grills, I'd be interested in buying your old set.

For some reason, Parking Assist isn't available on the diesels until April production -- that's why it's not showing up yet on the website. Its definitely not standard.

My 2012 X5 had 11 miles on it when I picked it up; my 2010 X5 (purchased from the same dealer) only had 7! So, as they say, YMMV. :rofl:
