Very nice. I considered the new Cayenne but with the discounts on the X5 and not on the Cayenne, it came down to money for me.

Those pics of yours X5M50d might have just sold it for me! Dang that looks good.  I might need to shake the piggy bank again after all!  I should have known that asking for advice on this place would involve spending more cash! Mind you, what goes around comes around.

As these are all dealer fit items, I don’t think there’s any difference in price between now and later.

Thanks folks.

General X5 Forum (F15) / M Performance Side Skirts Yes or No?
« on: Yesterday at 11:56:57 AM »
I’m getting a Carbon Black M50d with the front and rear carbon splitter and diffusers and also black grilles and rear lip spoiler.  I’ve not opted for the Matt black M Performance side skirts, though have been umm’ing and ahh’ing about them for a while now.  What’s people’s thoughts on these? I think they look great against white, but do they look lost against a black car? I also wonder if the mix of carbon, gloss black, then the Matt black is too many variations?

Thoughts appreciated. Cheers.

Looking good. A cheeky carbon front splitter would look spot on! You know you want to! :)

I’ve read about this before but never used it:

Just been out and coded the indicator checks off. No more random flashing!

Nice one 👍.

Just to put it into perspective, in the mid-naughtiest the E53 RHD models were a ‘special order’ and only produced in batches.  Mine took 10 months to arrive (thanks to a Dealer Assist as the normal wait was 14 months)!
10 months!?! Wow, that’s a serious wait for a car and it would take some commitment to wait for that!

I’ve actually just found out it’s on the boat over from Germany. Still looking good for the 27th.  :)

Hi

From what I have gleaned from other who bought the M50d it was worth waiting for and will put a big smile on your face  :) when you drive it.

I’m very much hoping that’s the case!  :)

The wait will be worth it!
I remember checking out the boat it was on and watching where it was and how long it was to go - SAD :(
If the vehicle is now in Germany going through quality assurance I would think it will be sooner than you think.
Sounds promising. Earlier would be great but will assume the worst for now.  :)

Nope, don’t like that. The 50 needs to stay, or it could be a 30 or 40!
Not convinced either.

Apparently my M50d has now made it to Germany & awaiting a boat to the uk.  I'm bored of all this waiting around now & just want the beast to play with! >:D  I'm banking on the weekend of the 27th now for the grand handover.

Apologies for all the comments on everyone else's posts until then, it's keeping me going until I have my own one on the drive!  :P

Here’s a slightly crude mock-up of how it might look, albeit on a black car.

I'm in two minds whether to remove the 'X5' part of the rear badges, just leaving the ///M50d part, as there are too many badges for my liking. Anyone else done the same?
I agree, there are too many. I reckon removing the ‘X5’ might be a decent option.

The dealer has agreed to replace these. He said they need to be bonded on, so need the car for a few hours. Hopefully that’ll stop them coming off again!
Good news. I like what theses small parts add to the front of the car.
