2014 BMW X5 F15 Design

I don't know why people dislike the new X5 so much. I think the car is good looking inside and out. I was never a big fan of the E70 (although the LCI made it look better). Anyways I would by the new X5 any day. What are your guy's thoughts?

I saw that color outside at my dealer today and I hate to admit it actually looked pretty nice. The previous black one I drove didn't do much for me.

I looked at the F15, and don't mind the style at all. It is different than the E70, but that is a good thing. Main problem for me is that the payload has been reduced, and increased payload would be one reason to get one. Thinking maybe a VW Touareg next.

Thanks. Noticeable more comfortable ride than my E70. Feels bigger and less sporty, but overall a very good cruiser and 3 kid hauler. Wife had a blast at the PCD. I've done it a few times, so nice for her to experience.

To me its just subtle changes here and there. Nothing major so no it
would not keep me from getting one. I opted to get a 2013 because
would be cheaper and not have to deal with the first teething pains.

have had several BMW and changes to me have never been that
great like in american cars. Which I like. You can pick out a BMW
even if 2 models back.

Also to get all the options I have on my 13 it would have cost me 5K
more at least. Some are expensive pkgs now.

In the pic by the OP, that front end looks like the high school Star Trek wanna be set designers were on that job...the front end of the white M version in Atlx's pic is a much more intergrated, less busy and refined look, imo.

The off color/non-matching 'silver' rocker panels and front end lip are from a RAV 4 from a decade ago, imo. Add in the 'chrome' window surrounds in that first pic, that the soccer Mom's won't notice, or care about.

All my 50Cts, as I am not in the mkt, but it has been interesting to see the new MYs and versions over the past 12+ years.
