2002 X5

Can someone tell me if there's a different for early production 2002 X5 and late production?
I noticed that on 2001 there's a different, the tail lights. I guess the early edition has no white glass light, but the late production is like 2002 model.
When will X5 modified their model, totally?
Thanks

There weren't any mid-year production changes on the 2002's that I'm aware of. The first major change on the X5 was the 2004 facelift. All other changes have been very incremental, with most being retrofitable (is that even a word?) to older models. For example, if you wanted the white center brake light, here's a DIY to do it - http://x5world.net/brakeled.htm

As for the next generation X5, I anticipate it will be a 2007 model released in 2006. But that's just my guess. See http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=73757

The white tail lights you are referring to are indicative of sport package versus non-sport package for 2002. As UCrewX5 pointed out, the high third brake light was red intil 2003 but that's an easy retrofit.

Also as he stated, there were only minor things. Two I can think of offhand are the switch from wood trim on the steering wheel (with premium package) to black plastic (even with premium) as of April '02 productions and the ability to easily retrofit Bluetooth started with later production '02's.

'02s and higher also have automatic headlamps (not that new of a feature; my buddy's 88 Taurus SHO has them).

I thought some Bluetooth copmpatibility issues too

my '02 4.4 was built in April or May, and Bluetooth module would not work. I thought they worked after June or something like that. Everything else I thought was the same.
