2011 X5 Alpine White looks much better with M package

We picked up our 2011 X5 SA + M package this past week and we love the look. When we were shopping for an X5, we wanted alpine white but the dark black trims around the wheel and bumper made the car look smaller. Although the black trim in 2011 is smaller than in 2010, it still didn't look good on a white car. The dealers we went to told us the body color trims only came in X5M (too expensive) or they could paint it white for us (which we wanted none of). Because of the black trim we almost ended up buying a dark color car. Luckily we did our research and found out that the optional M package came with body color trims and we took it. What a difference it makes on a white car. The sides looks much sleeker and the rear looks more robust and larger. Can't imagine a whte car with black wheel and bumper trims which makes it look more plastic. It matches very well with the tobacco interior.

Can you tell me were you found info on this M package? I looked at the configurator and don't see it there.

Also, can you share how much it was?

If you are using the BMW configurator, I believe that the M package is only available as an option for the 35i Sports Activity or the 50i. I guess we get the X5M look without the engine. We had the 2011 35iSA + M sport + Convenience + Technology + Heated seats + Premiun hifi + comfort access + multicontour seats (Alpine white, bamboo trim, tobacco brown).

Totally disagree 100% - only ordered AW on mine because of the contrast with the black - the M-port and X5M are way too white in my book!

Mein Auto: 2010 X5 3.0d M pack
there is no accounting for taste !!!!

it's jaust as well that we are all different otherwise, we would be back to Henry Ford's statement

"You can have it in any colour you want, so long as it's Black"

Personally, I think the AW looks fantastic on a standard X5 !!!

Mein Auto: 2011 X5 diesel
Thanks a lot. She did test drive the x5 with M option but opted for the diesel due to her work. I really like the look of your all white x5. Congrats. We are for sure going to paint all thw side black trim and the black runner (strip down side) and the front too. I am not sure about the rear piece. My gf is indifferent and has made it my project. I color matched all the trim on my eange rover and it turned out awesome.

Any idea where we can get a clear front reflector for 2011 x5. I see it it just a stick on but there is also a camera above. Would love to get that clear and get rid of the orange.

Jason

For comparison with black, but all X5's are hot in my book, just my preference to have the black and white contrast!
