Like some people have said, the new E70 is more of evolutionary than revolutionary. Does it imply that the mechanism of the E70 would be very similar to the latest E53? It doesn't have Dynamic X-drive. The only new things (as far as I know) are the flexray and the "updated" steptronic (but still only a steptronic). This actually may help the new E70 to reduce any potential issue with the early production lot. Do you think so?

Anyway, I think you are right and there will be a lot of people lining up to get the new X5 as quickly as possible. It is definitely a great car. Hopefully it won't have too many problems.

BTW, anyone here who bought an early production E53 would like to share their views? Has anyone heard of any drastic issue with the early production E53?
