2014 X5 production model spotted in the wild

I just saw this parked on Long Island New York. I'm guessing it's a press car or some exec at BMW. BMW HQ in Jersey is about an hour away.
The badges were still covered up. In person, it looked just...

This was the reason I ordered Active Steering with mine. I noticed how heavy it felt during the test drive.

I think the eBay listing was legit: in the photos it says "Media Edition" so I suspect it's either a press review unit or one they use for demos, commercials, car shows.
Either way, we hopefully...

That looks good, I might just order a pair too. I also dislike the look of cheapo halogen bulbs in the fogs. (Especially when they come on with the turn signal.)

I have a 2013 35i. It's 4 months old now. It's the first winter and this morning was the coldest morning of the year (yet) here in the NYC area, with temperatures in the mid 10's.

Ouch.... really feel your pain.... this kind of damage to a brand new car. (My windshield cracked and needed replaced when my car was only 5 days new - and that was nothing compared to your damage.)
