Hope this helps.

I really think these are two different issues. I have had no problems since learning I have to put a little muscle into closing the bottom portion of the rear hatch.

I also have rear climate controls and changing iDrive to turn them off does solve this issue. The center armrest area also gets really cold until you turn it off.

My 2011 X5 35d came with a ski bag. Canada automatically gets the cold weather package in the base product and the ski bag is still there.

Look at the steering wheel. It is a non-sport. The window trim doesn't look too shiny so it may be just black rubber (which is what the non-sport model has).

Hope this helps.

I agree. The pics are not good representations of the colors. Even the configurators on the BMW web sites are not that good either. The best thing to do is to go to a dealer and see it in person.

No disrespect to owners of previous years but those new bumpers (especially the rear) look great with alpine white with the contrasting black trim. Excellent choice and best of luck with it.
