Oooh....It looks great!!! I like the rear the best but the headlights and grill really look awkward. The interior is gorgeous aswell along with the 3rd row-seat ......Hmmmm......Might have to upgrade my lease....

WOW! It is great!

But:
1. where are the paddle shifters?
2. how do you adjust the air suspension?
3. does the rearview camera come standard?
4. are the wheels 20"?
5. M-sport kit and M-steering wheel?
6. what sort of gearbox is it using (the newly designed gear level is just a gimmick - only Steptronic)?
7. the last couple of pics - is that cinnamon brown leather (love it)!
8. the 4.8i from 0-100km in 6.5s (not as fast as the current 4.8is) - boo!

When will they publish the brochure with the options list? Are they going sell this in Germany Dec 06 (as 07 model)? How about the rest of the world? Will the 08 model start in Sept 07?

For sure, BMW has something else up theire sleive later on, something more powerful.


It's good looking the new X5, really like the design of it!
The rear looks like E39 touring, the lights are almost the same, but it looks good!

Some of the pictures looks way too doctored up for me to say that this is the new X5. Although, it does look nice and I am hopeful.

Oh, c'mon. What do you think this is a KIA or what?

Of course it is BMW E70 X5 - and the pics are official but leaked (again).

That gear select knob is terrible. I'm not real hot on the front end too.

yee, the benz-following is recipe for disaster... the press release is verry interesting, though and makes it interesting.
Hopefully it is a repeat of the E90's photochop 'leak'


Although, it is kind of the opposite of the e92...

Wink X5 is Back!

I really like the New X5. It's built in America too. Wifey has a 7 now, I think a X5 is in order.

Guys, I like what I see. I will wait for the official post and check this baby out.

What about the uprated 3.0 biturbo diesel engine found in X3 3.0sd?
Will it be introduced later on?
