BMW’s latest X5 is a fine vehicle, but if you want yours to stand out from the crowd you’re going to need to personalize it. BMW makes the process easy by offering a range of upgrades direct from the factory.

If you’re looking to add a little more sport to your sport activity vehicle (BMW’s label for SUVs), then there’s the BMW M Performance range. However, if it’s luxury you’re after then it’s best to take a look through the BMW Individual catalog. The official BMW personalization department has a long list of upgrades specifically created for the new X5.

For the exterior, there are unique color options. The application of up to seven layers of paint and the addition of special color pigments provide the BMW Individual hues with iridescent effects and plenty of depth. There are also various wheel patterns that measure up to 20 inches in diameter.

Inside, BMW Individual upgrades include fine-grain Merino leather trim with contrast stitching as well as the choice of piano black, fine wood or aluminum accents around the dash.

But the personalization doesn’t have to end with the car. BMW is also offering various accessories for the X5 via its Original BMW Accessories range. These items are literally made-to-measure and include floor and luggage compartment mats, along with transport bags whose contours are precisely shaped to fit the interior dimensions of the X5.

There is much, much more on offer, so be sure to consult with your BMW dealer or check out the BMW Individual website.
