List of things that the E70 need!

Guys, anything else you think the E70 should have besides the ones listed below:

1. M sport steering wheel with paddle shifter;
2. Air suspension (with height adjustment and sport mode);
3. re-design of the shift lever in centre console (i.e. the one in the spy pic shown in another thread);
4. Carbon fibre interior trim;
5. M-sport kit;
6. 20 inch or larger M-style wheels;
7. Reverse/Back-up camera;
8. Choice of exterior color: Carbon Black and Sparkling Graphite;
9. Choice of interior color: Indianapolis Red and Cinnamon Brown and Creamy White.

Mein Auto: 335i, 535i
Lighter doors lol
Not a big increase of price
LED rear lamps,
Bigger Trunk,
Back-Up camera,
ARS (Active-Roll-Stabilization like 5er),
Power Tail-Gate,
Knee Air-Bag,
Adjustible Pedals,
Ventilated Front Seats,
Water Repelent front door glass- as does Lexus',
More Storage space- Especially with Navi.
///M Badged Model
It would be cool to have an X5 Coupe model though.

Can't think of anything at the moment.... P.S. alot of these are not things the X5 NEEDS but things that would be liked.

Mein Auto: 2005 X5 3.0i
1. Lane Departure System
2. Traffic Updating Navi System
3. An exhaust note that is worthy of the e70 for all engine variations (something like the Infiniti but better sounding)
4. The heavy doors...It keeps me in shape...LOL...j/k
and off-course the things metioned above.

Just hoping BMW will have a final review of customers' suggestions before the E70 goes into final production.

sorry to break it to you xdrive, but you're about 2 years too late...although if you hurry they might be able to work some of your suggestions into the facelift.

You are probably right. But they should still be able to give the additional exterior and interior color choices as well as the carbon fibre trim not to mention the M sport steering wheel with paddle shifters (they are offering it in the 335i anyway).

70 MPG. Well, maybe even 30 would be nice.
