Won’t be long now....

Until we see what the new X5 will look like.

According to the link, there will be an M50i, so my interest has been aroused!

Rear lights are a real letdown and the “kidneys” are too big, interior very nice

I reckon it’ll look great in the flesh.

I remember when they launched the F15, loads of posts on here were saying how " Fuggly " it looked.
As with a lot of new cars they grow on you 👍
I think it looks great 😀

BMW ‘kidneys’ are generally getting bigger.  My anticipated 220d xDrive Gran Tourer has larger ones than its predecessor too.
:type: Never anthropomorphise computers. They hate that.

There’s some good videos on YouTube, have to say it looks great from every angle.

If I were to get another I’d go for the 50i rather than a 50d. As much as I love mine, a V8 just has something about it.

Same here. The 50i would be my choice. I like the sound of the active grills that open and close, according to your speed. They are saying the new X5 is more aerodynamic than the McLaren F1!

I think the interior looks fantastic, and it looks like they’ve gone full TFT for the dash, which should be fully customisable.

Lovely interior - finally one to match the competition.

Front looks good, the grill is becoming bigger but still nice there's character.

Rear end never was great after they straightened it to get 7 seats in.

the tail lights are a desaster. Done away with their so called 'signature' L-lights?? What's going on even the M8 has the L-light. This looks like the ford s-max's rear end.
