How can you tell the difference without a close inspection. To me, unless they have a paper dealer's plate, they all look the same at a casual glance. I saw an X5M (I know only because it was parked next to me and I looked at it carefully) that looked no different than a plain jane 3.0 at a glance. The 4 pipes on the rear end of course set it somewhat apart. I guess I am just not attuned to the minutia of the subtle changes in X5 design. At a stop light yesterday there were 4 X5's stopped together. It looked like a photo from a car magazine. They are all over the place around here, almost as many as RX's.
