Inside, the SUV gets full leather accessories with ‘M’ labeling, sports seats, polished aluminum trim and an M steering wheel. Handling has been enhanced thanks to modifications to the adaptive drive and active steering systems, and individual selection of specific tires that differ between the front and rear axles.
We can’t really say we’re fans of this new look. The X5 SUV is undoubtedly a superb vehicle and in standard form is quite a looker, but this new kit, especially the front bumper, seems to have been hit with the ugly stick. The kit will cost €6,350 with either the 3.0si or 3.0d models, or €4,840 when equipped with the 4.8i V8 model.
