Saw the F15 at night for the first time yesterday. Driving next to me, loved the headlights and tail lights. Also saw the blue accent lighting inside. I was impressed.

Looks like Bangle gave it 7 series eyebrows..what a shame.

I'm looking for a muscular 2014 X5 M 550hp but a guess that ain't gonna happen.

BMW you should sell to Audi and I HATE Audi. Their making fire breathing super cars now and could figure out how to make a X5 super car.

No the F15 "does not" make the E70 look out dated at all.
Anyone outside of a die hard BMW fan would not notice the
difference. I saw the spy photos and decided not enough
change to pay 5K more. If look at the two off in a distance
can not tell the change.

Now the corvette C6 to C7, that is a change and will admit
it make my C6 look obsolete. But the quality control and mechanicals
issue Chevy is having, I would not want t 2014. They seem to be
running them off the line and onto a truck without checking. Some
don't even have fluids in them.

In looking at the rear of the F15 what do not like, is how the tailgate
sinks in more to the bumper. That looks like lexus gx or 4Runner. Do like
the E70 better on how it flows.

Saw a metallic black F15 at the ski slope today and I like it better in real life then in the pictures. It is similar enough to the e70 that few will actually realize they are not the same car.

I agree that the e70 is edgier in styling but I also think it will grow on me.

Hope you're all enjoying your holiday season!

Agreed, better than the pics! Also I think the F15 feels more solid the E70, more like the E53. I just has a nice build quality about it. I drove a diesel also. Pretty sweet.

I didn't like the E53 styling, prefer the F15. I think the E70 is better than both and easily the best looking SUV BMW has ever made. Better looking than the bangle generation of cars too.
