Not a diesel but took delivery of my 50i today : ) Came with Paddle Shifters, which was a nice surprise for me. Did BMW changed that recently?

Look in your glove box when your X5d gets delivered tomorrow. It shouldn't be any different than the 2011 manual.

Cannot get the car before 31st. Yes, I can get the 2011 manual, but just like to have the 2012 to get "exact" information

Me, day I got it...

http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...&postcount=100

Do folks need special views or something? I took a few pics after I detailed it, if anyone is looking for something.

PS...Say, I'm in Europe right now, and couldn't sworn an x6 Diesel just passed me...is there such a car? Driving a 530 diesel, 8 spd. Pretty sweet. Day off tomorrow, visiting the P museum in Stuttgart.

Sounds a bit of a waiting time....
No, they could have had it ready for me in a couple of hours -- the wait is due to my schedule, not theirs.

Here is a link to the manual for a 2012 X5 5.0 -- however, when you read it, you'll see that it includes all the X5 versions, including the 3.5d model.

Thanks. Now when I had a second look on those 2012 manuals that are available, it seems that it's the exact same for all the models. 35d is just not mentioned there.
