Model Year 2013 X5 xDrive35d Product Annoucement

FYI, Jon Shafer just announced the following http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=650637

I am glad I didn't wait for the 2013. None of the changes would affect me and I was able to get the $1,000 BMW Drive USA credit. Now I of course jinxed it, the eco credit probably will go to $6,000 for the 2013 model....

Just as I thought. Kind of heartbreaking that the e70d didn't get the 2 extra gears, n57 and brake regen. But it's ok still a great vehicle nonetheless. T he chrome is just, 1) kidney grill 2) piping around the weather stripping around the windows. If you see a 13 premium ull know (or u could build it w/ convenience).

The Eco credit may decrease or increase but that depends on BMW lol

It's not surprising. The E70 is going to be replaced next year with the F15. Why engineer something for <1 year of production.

"Production for the MY2013 X5 xDrive35d will begin in December 2012."

Anyone knows why not in September/October like it has been so far every year since the diesel was introduced?

It's what comes standard on the 35i Premium, the chrome window trim basically.

Hate chrome trim around windows!! I hope they will have an option to "delete it", as I do need other features from the prem package.

Nope. No ACC on any diesel in the US market for some dumb reason
