Pics of Platinum Bronze - Getting Dirty!

Literally the day after we took delivery of our new X5, we packed up and went cross country skiing. The car performed fantastic in the "Washington outback" -- however it was a tough to see it get so dirty (inside and outside) when its so new! We are lovin' the platinum bronze (we almost ordered the space grey) - this color is a bit more unique and it's very good at hiding dirt...

A pretty dirty spankin' new X5

Great mountain road twisties - lots of fun here:

Your X still looks great dirty! One of the reasons I picked this color as well.

The X looks good with mud on it, lol. I am also wondering the location. Too bad out here in Central KY it's all flat.

Plain, Washington

This is in Plain, Washington - it's a tiny town in the Cascade Mountains. Lots of great downhill and cross country skiing. You can't imagine how much fun we had with the X -- I'm so glad we had that and not the Volvo!

I'll tell you - on some of those mountain twisties, the X5 performed almost as well as our 330 would have! This is an amazing vehicle!
