Hmmm, aero kit. Might have to consider that in the future, both of your X5s look good with them

Never knew that, I just bought wheels that I liked

Though they might be a little "too" black, maybe I should've gone with a polished (or even white) lip or something. Though it would look better with the plastic parts cleaned and detailed, instead of the black offset by the dull grey......

We used to have an Audi Q7 which we traded in yesterday for a brand new X5 40D with the Dynamic pack and media pack plus third row with 20 inch Y's and the top view camera. So far so good, although the ride (with the added sports suspension is much firmer than on our Q7 S line which had adaptive air suspension. Got a reasonable deal from the dealer although we bought one of their stock cars as it was specc'd how we wanted it, and in a great colour too (platinum grey). Here are a few pics taken between rain showers

what's under the bonnet-2

We took the car for a 50 mile round trip down to the Gower peninsula so she got her first dirt! She is definitely a firmer ride than the Q7, but has some real urgency.

My brother in law's often failing X5 is the one behind - if it's electrical and essential for knowing how far you've gone or how much fuel you have left, it doesn't work!

Very nice platinum grey is a good colour in SE spec with black arch moldings. Youll enjoy the X I''ve just turned 2k miles since last month and loved every mile.

Remember you have a 1250miles run in period so dont use the kick down or rev over 3500rpm - that way youll preserve the cars running gear / engine / turbo in the long run Well done

Took this pic over the weekend--kinda blurry from my phone camera. This is from Deep Ellum which is the artsy, electic, live music area near downtown. A mural of a Western cowboy scene.

I took this photo as I approached my X5 after a couple of hours shopping. It was a spur of the minute phone photo (hence the blurred shot), but thought it would make for a good photo of the X5.

How did you get that killer shine? I just picked up an 07 E70, and I need to undo about 5 years' neglect when it warms up again.
