According to the dealer the chrome exterior window trim ( convenience package ) will not be installed due to shortages at the factory. So BMWNA will discount $100. Also I am told that the factory will install the regular black trim. I'm not sure what that will look like.
I've had the chrome trim before which I didn't like so much because after a while it shows water stains.

I have the shadow line trim now on my sports package 535i and love this trim as it is low maintenance and adds a nice sporty touch to it.

Does anyone know what the trim will look like?

I think it's the normal black trim that comes on the base, if you like the shadowline, then tell your dealer you'd rather have that. They also have a matte aluminum trim available on the X5, it you'd rather have it. Either way, all the upgraded trim lines cost considerably more then $100 if you were to try to upgrade from the standard black base trim.

Thanks ND40, can you describe to me what the differences are between standard black trim and shadowline. I already know what the shadowline trim looks like as I have it on my current car.

From the pictures I've seen, it looks more matte, like the roof rails, think this X5 has it:

Hmm thats not bad at all. I prefer that over the chrome since chrome tend to stain from water.

Thank you.

Congrats, same here. Have they given you an ETA? They are giving themselves 2 weeks for mine to get here. I hope that it doesn't take that long.

Same as two days ago It will probably arrive next Monday or Tuesday then give another day or two for dealer to prep and then it should be available for pick up.

Awesome!! Congrats. I can't wait to see pictures. Mine has yet to arrive at the dealer, but it has been in Canada since last Friday, so I assume it should be there soon.

Glad for the people taking delivery, congrats! Cannot wait for mine to come - still "in production" or stage 01 on the tracking website. Question: any suggestions for a list of things to watch for when taking delivery? There is a pretty comprehensive list here, http://e46fanatics.com/faq/checklist.html, but I am curious if there is anything particular relating to the newer X5s. Again, enjoy the ride, you lucky new owners!

It is the dealer's badge that I plan on taking off later today with dental floss
The multi contour seat is the same as my previous car. I guess BMW likes to confuse people with different names.. ( sports seat, multi-contour seats ). I'm familiar with it
