I think I'm sold !! Curse you BMW :)

So after looking at every picture known to man and even participating in the X-Drive event last week I was not yet sold on the new F15 X5. Truly love my existing 2011 E70 and no intentions of even considering the purchase of a 2014 model until seeing this picture today. I must say that with the right exterior package, wheels, and of course the color, this new design truly shines.

To me there is not that much of change over all. About like it use to be
with american manufacturers. Different taillights, headlights, grill. Overall its
the same shell. Even interior. its got that thing sticking up on the dash but
again overall not that much different from the 2013.

If for some reason had to get a new one, would not hesitate. I'm
just not seeing a major change.

Do wish they knew now to make the diesel reliable. use to be such good engines.

So-so quality pic...reminds me of the X3 sport version a few years ago.
Hope you go look at/drive one, in person vs swooning over a pic.

I just got back from the dealer and I do have to say the F15 does look much different in person than it does in the pictures. I have to say I think it looks better in person. The front end is a bit awkward which takes some getting used to but i think the back looks better.

The Interior is nicer in my eyes. It is not completely different, but enough for me to notice the differences very quickly. I have to say, looking at it online, I was luke warm, now that I do like it.

The real test is going to be how it feels and drives.

Sorry, this one is not for me... Talk about a pig with lipstick... I got to the dealer today and all I can say is that all the style has been extracted and you are left with just a pointie nosed brick.

If I ever buy another X5 looks like 2013 will be the max year for me.

I am totally opposite. I was sold from all the pics i have seen, and even went ahead to sell my 08 X a month ago. Last week went to the dealer to looked at in person, did not care much for it. Have to get a different vehicle now.
