Arrow F15 X5 Real Life Pics

As the BMW press release stated that the 35d for US market is not hitting showrooms till January, it is still doing some high altitude testing around Colorado.

Spotter Todd says: "I happened to catch this somewhat disguised X5 (notice the BMW logos are covered on hood, tail and wheels but X5 emblem isn't) at a filling station in Lone Tree, Colo., just south of Denver. Talked briefly with the driver, who was German. He said he had driven cross country from South Carolina for altitude testing here. It is the the turbo-diesel model; he acknowledged the turbo diesel was a good choice for the mountains and that the driving characteristics of the new X5 were a bit different than the current model."

first time seeing the actual yellow reflectors in place. That couldn't look any worse. This silver and the ugly 18" wheels (probably for snow) do it no favors either. These stock F15s will need some serious styling help.

Man, in stock form it is underwhelming in every way.

...WalmartNation has had considerable effect on, and overtaken BMW's design dept., imo.

Wow, I had a completely different reaction to most of the posters. These are by far the best "real world" pictures of the F15, and I like most everything except for the wheels. The side vents look good, and are far less contrived than on most vehicles, and don't look like add-ons like the F32.

The M-Sport looks good

The 35d looks very plain but the 50i M-Sport (palbay pics) looks pretty good to me. Big uptick over the base 35d.

Maybe the chrome roof rails, maybe the better rims, but it just looks more aggressive and like an X5 should look.

Just my 2c
