That doesnt sound correct

The X Line does not give you a choice...it is supposed to be satin aluminum.

X Line is only way to get the Orbit Gray Wheels

They are on my 2015 X Line and they are great...my car is silver.

Brake dust is still a minor issue but the difference between this 2015 and my 2013 X5 (both diesels) is staggering. I am an...

I have a new X5 but love the X6

I have a brand new X5 which I absolutely love but the X^ is very cool looking to me.

Of course I am a little strange as my biggest issue with the X^ and X4 is the lack of a rear wiper
on the car....

That one is really loaded

I also got premium package and multi contour.

Look I cannot advise what to spend. To me that one is a real well optioned truck but I struggled with how expensive mine was. I paid about $800 over...

Picked X line with delete for running boards

I picked it therefore I obviously preferred it right? I think it looks cool...very rich and sporty for an SUV.

I had no delay

Ordered my 35D on January 7 and took delivery in exactly 4 weeks.

BTW traded in a 2013 35D which was gorgeous, perfect, and low mileage. The 2015 is just noticeably better in every respect. Easier...

Thanks everyone

I am flabbergasted. My car is at the dealer three weeks after my order! Dealing with the largest dealer in NY really works!

Brake dust less with F15 vs E70?

Hi all. Trading my 2013 X5D for a 2015 X5D. I noticed that the new ones don't seem to get black wheels as mine does. Is this my imagination or did BMW change brake pads?

My 2013 is perfect. Made...

I got a 750IL

2 year service on my 2013 X5 D and they gave me a brand spanking new 705 IL X drive.

Very nice car. Still prefer the X5. Had the 750 for two days...13.5 mpg but it was quick and it was classy.

Macan is fabulous but just wait until the first service

I own a 911 and a 2013 X5. My BMW dealer has 60 loaners. The Porsche dealer has 5.
The service on the BMW is included. Just changing the Porsche's oil is $350.00.

I love the Macan. I lust after...

Rotate the tires front to back

Listen for the noise.

Could be the tire...easy to ascertain. Otherwise I suspect a wheel bearing.

Some pumps are easier than others

As posted already do not try to use the large truck nozzles.

I have found that the regular nozzles sometimes don't want to go in and I literally push it in and it is fine. Not sure why as my...

I have both in back

The weathertech is a hardish plastic but fits beautifully. I placed the BMW mats over it. Double protection.

I use the weathertech alone in front.

I have experienced this as well in my 2013

I look carefully at the nozzle to make sure it is the correct one rather than the large one for trucks and then I basically shove it in if it doesnt want to go in easily. Works everytime but it is...

That is exactly the look I want

May I ask a few questions:

Did they have to remove the tires to coat the wheels? I am assuming yes.

Were you told how long the powder coating would remain durable?

Where did you have it...

Thanks for your thoughts

I am considering that but I own the car and that will definitely be a devaluating factor on trade in. If it isnt stock when you trade it it is a big loss in the value column.
