October 10, 2017. Munich. A confident presence in any situation and boundless driving pleasure on any terrain are among the shared strengths of the BMW X5 (fuel consumption combined: 9.6 – 3.3 l/100 km [29.4 – 85.6 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 224 – 77 g/km) and BMW X6 (fuel consumption combined: 9.7 – 6.9 l/100 km [29.1 – 40.9 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 225 – 183 g/km). And the Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) and Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) are now set to welcome attractive special-edition models which underscore their exclusive and sporting character extremely effectively. The BMW X5 Special Edition and BMW X6 M Sport Edition both capture the imagination with their high-class equipment features. The two special-edition models will be available from December 2017.

The BMW X5 Special Edition brings together the M Sport package with Dakota leather trim, including heated seats for the driver and front passenger. The Alcantara/leather upholstery combination in Anthracite/Black and with M badging on the seat leather is available as an alternative at no extra cost. BMW Individual extended leather upholstery Merino in five colour variants can be specified as an option. Added to which, the BMW X5 Special Edition also comes with sun protection glass and the Multifunctional Instrument Display (not available for the BMW X5 xDrive40e iPerformance). All variants of the BMW X5 are available in Special Edition guise, with the exception of the BMW X5 M50d.

The Long Beach Blue metallic exterior paint shade and Carbon Fibre interior trim strips are the exclusive elements of the M Sport Edition package for the BMW X6. The Carbon Black and Mineral White metallic paint finishes are available as alternatives. The M Sport Edition also adds the equipment features of the M Sport package and 20-inch M light-alloy wheels (also exclusive) in double-spoke design with mixed-size runflat tyres. 21-inch M light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design with mixed-size runflat tyres can be ordered as an option for the special-edition model. All engine variants of the Sports Activity Coupe are available in M Sport Edition specification, with the exception of the BMW X6 M50d.

Putting ?lipstick on a pig? taking parts from the F85/F86 bin and slapping on the F15/F16. Probably since the parts contract specifies a specific number to be ordered monthly for the preferred pricing for the F85/F86, so just create a ?special edition? to maintain the contracts. Glad that the F15 doesn?t get LLB as that?s what I ordered for my F85. Typical BMW EOP marketing to drive sales. Nothing new.

As my 535i lease is ending soon, I excitedly clicked to see what the Special Edition was all about- and was promptly reminded why this was probably my last BMW. Its all about M... Marketing.


Unless I pick up a used 2 series in a couple of years.

I'm planning on picking up an M2 CSL in a couple of years. Cause you know.. it's all about .. ///Marketing

Personally, I don't care what they make, as long as my M2 CSL comes with a six speed.

Who cares.....it?s all about driving experience and nothing beats driving a real ?M? car. For sure I didn?t bought my car because it had M4 on the trunk and to show of to those who can?t afford it

I can?t wait for BMW sales number to plummet as these cars fall apart. The nostalgia of what bmw used to be is what is selling these marketing cars despite their pitfalls. Once the driving magic is total gone from memory (because it?s already gone from the cars themselves), they?ll learn their lesson as they become just another random automaker.

See Honda over the last ten years vs. current revitalization.

You may never see it happen. I agree with what you are saying, but they are no idiots, marketing and statistics shows otherwise - that sales are going well. Also, the part about cars falling apart is quite opposite: compare previous generation of x5 with current f15 which has a lot less issues. Many BMW old school enthusiasts don't like the general trend - but it is how it is. BMW is making profit and selling numbers like never before.
I also don't agree with magic been gone - look at recent M5 - it's one of the best cars created lately and specs are better than ever before. Look at x5m - it is a most appealing car in its class, hell even a "cheaper" 50i f15 x5 is a phenomenal car that can put to shame 95% of cars on the road. Look at i8 - it's design is IMHO beautiful and nothing from electric cars comes close to it. BMW has most of the bases covered. Yes, there are some weak spots in some class, but BMW never had best cars in ALL categories. I think if we look at reality with a objective view - I see lot of improvements. Not to mention huge amount of new tech BMW released to market within last 3 years

Age old debate every marketer goes through in trying to build a brand; how do we grow without alienating the hard core loyalists. Not an easy balance, I?m afraid. There will always be people who feels a brand is changing and it?s not for them anymore. But then again if the overall numbers are growing and there are more satisfied customers, that?s what will matter to BMW.

That said, I was very close to ditching BMW few months back after been loyal for more than 15 years. So, I do share some of the resentment.

And people say why citizens follow bad leader. Wake up people, Mercedes released a street legal F1 car to take on any supercar on planet and BMW is trying to make money from black badge? Later BMW said it?s useless to make a supercar. So let me get this straight, these special editions are not useless? Or the black badge is not useless? So all supercar manufactures are idiots but BMW is smart? Give me a break. AMG build their engines from scratch while BMW is using shared engine products from N54.
I owned 15 M3 then traded it for 2017 M3 LCI2 competition package. I?m not even going to talk about the steel driveshaft that will replace the cf driveshaft because of ?emission? (shame), Infiniti will release Project S that will utilize F1 turbo technology, Mercedes will release F1 street legal car and BMW is changing the best feature of M3 because of ?emission?.

Keep supporting their ///Marketing people, sorry to say this but it?s working..

The release is for outside North America I presume as I thought Dakota leather is lower than what is already standard leather offering here in Canada
