    Outstanding, very discrete, just what the hottest suv needed, nothing more nothing less, i even like the fogs now, much better job than the E92 fl.

    Looks good just the front i think i prefer the pre facelit.
    Are their any changes under the skin of note.

    Very lovely resfresh. Subtle, but I am not sure the car needed a FL. It still looks fresh as new. And I don't mind those fogs, although LEDs would've been better.

    So did it get the 50i TT and DPC ?

    Perfection. The X5 is one of the few cars which have looked nothing but perfect since generation one.

    Man, already?! The perfect X5 just got perfecter.

    Would probably not notice the FL if I saw one on the road, unless it was side by side with the PFL.

    Of course it will get the facelift. But it is bad/sad for those customers who have already purchased the M version. :D

    Nice, but I really wouldn't be able to tell the difference on the road.

    Only thing odd is the placement of the fog lights.
