Smile 2013 X5 35P Alpine White/Cinnamon - It's here; pics inside!!

Took delivery 4.5 weeks after ordering. Here are some pics including close-ups of OEM mud flaps. I couldn't find pics of the mud flaps when I was deciding to buy them so maybe this will help the next guy.

White would have been our top pick as well. Just couldn't pass up the deal on a Platinum gray demo.

Thumbs up

Thanks all for the kind words.

We are pleased with the car in terms of the color combo, quality of the materials, fit and finish, etc. Alpine White is an interesting color - its not blinding white, but rather a more subtle shade. Hard to explain.

I washed it for the first time today. The color does show road grime easily but also washes up quickly.

I did notice my wife manged to curb the drivers side rear wheel right at the bead in the first week of ownership. Oh well, it's a daily driver not a museum piece.

Edit to add: Adaptive headlights are fantastic. Really saw them in action tonight and they are remarkable piece of technology. Come in very handy on the twisty back roads in our locale.

Car looks great! After seeing the pics, I'm thinking about getting mud flaps. But do you really need to remove the rear wheels to install them?
