Saw a couple pics from last night of the Carbon Black x5M also. It looked awesome!

These new xM are stunning to say the least. I especially love the interior

Could anyone photoshop the x5 without that bar on the bottom portion of the grill?

Here's a pic from last night. I spoke to Dr. Nitschke at length about the engineering that went into these new ///Monsters. The X6 M achieved the same lap time around the Nurburgring as the e92 M3!

David sorry I missed you last night I would like to have met you.

Here are my observations:


So we to went the sneak preview/launch on the new X5M/X6M last night in LA at Siren Studios on Sunset. I was a nice short evening with cocktails and light fair and the typically BMW top brass.

They had a Azurite Black / Sakhir red X5M and a Long Beach Blue / camel color (don't recall the name)X6M.

The most striking feature for me was the interiors, a huge improvement!! The seats are killer. As for the outside they look good very aggressive although the X6M has very Cayenne'ish front end. The rims are good looking and standard 21's with Michelin pilot super sports.

Would like to see the Long Beach Blue in the daylight as it was hard to tell the true color under the bright lights.

Anyway here are 2 quick pics off my phone....

It was short but fun. Biggest improvement in looks is the X6M IMO.

Bokke! Sorry I missed you. Many quote requests and the usual LA traffic. Made it at 9:15 lol. We'll meet up I'm sure. Let me know if you're going to the LA Show! Nice pics! The interior in the X6 M was Aragon Brown.

I am basically drooling over the X6M. I didnt like the broken side profile crease from the front to the back, but it is growing on me... or maybe I am just accepting it... but every other aspect of this car has become a must have for me.

That Long Beach Blue is a beautiful color, but a bit too loud for me when it comes to a Daily Driver. Looking forward to see what colors they will offer in the Individual packages. The standard X5M/X6M colors are not doing it for me.

I will start saving my pennies now.

X5M has a spare tire? Is that right what I'm seeing or did they just threw in one just to show you can fit a spare??

I want those brakes and tires. As soon as I wear out my runflats I'm going to get those super sports and that spare in the trunk. Hoping there will be a retrofit kit for the e70 X5M brake wise.

That brown/black interior combo is fantastic, but holy huge air dams/bumper reflectors!!!

It also appears that the engine brace/s are hidden under the engine cover and aren't very apparent. Wonder how much more rigid the chassis is relative to the previous gen?

Yes, that looks much better without that beam across the center. Perhaps the height of that huge center portion in the front bumper could be slightly reduced and it would be perfect. Great render.

One of the disappointments on the E70M was that it had standard parts ie wing mirrors and seats.

Those new seats look amazing, drool.....
