My AW MSport X5 Photoshoot

Hi all,

I picked up my X5 few days ago. Loving it. Interior is a huge improvement and ride is really refined compared to E70. Mocha Dakota and Aluminum Hexagon trim combo is beautiful. Adaptive M Suspension makes a very good and noticeable different from comfort to sport mode. Also love the blurp sound it makes when shifting up in sports mode at high rpms -- reminds me of my dual clutch S4.

Configuration:

2015 X5 xDrive35i
M Sport - Adaptive M Suspension - 20" 469M Wheels
Alpine White
Mocha Dakota Leather
Aluminum Hexagon Interior Trim
Premium Package
Driver Assistance Package
Active Steering
Rear manual side window shades
Harman Kardon
Space-saver spare
Surround View

First Mod: BMW OEM Front Grill Trim (using skalberti's plastic bonding method)
Coding: 6NS, VLD, USB video playback and more. Thanks opasha for video tutorial and help via team viewer!!

I tinted front window myself... in photoshop

Finally!! Haris, this is a very nice looking vehicle, did you decide what you are going to do with the front plates?

Also I love the fact that tailgate glass fins are black on light colored X5's, makes the rear end look wider than it is.. White/Light color is the way to go with M-Sport!

I thought Mocha and aluminum would clash, but not so after seeing your pics. Very nice!

I'm itching to start coding. Cable in-hand and s/w install in process (thanks again r33!). Gotta read up before I start messin' around though.

Beautiful pictures! You've chosen the location wisely and have done some outstanding exterior photos. Interior confirms my choice, love the Mocha. What lens did you use for interior shots? Thanks for sharing.

Does it only sound well in sport mode/high revs?

Thanks! Going to keep it like this for now. Let's see how long I can get away with it.

Thanks! Watch opasha's videos. You can connect to car and browse the modules, save configs. You don't have to change anything until you are comfortable

Did you order the same exterior or interior color combo? I'm in love with my interior. Looks great and no regrets.

Thanks! Took a while to find this spot I used Canon 60D with EF-S 17-55 F2.8 lens.

BMW should use those interior pics you took to put in their brochure to show off that amazing mocha.
