Just got it......2013 X5M

Picked up my 2013 X5M just a week ago today. Wow, what a rig. We have a 2011 X5 diesel now, but this M is kick ***.

Sapphire Black with vented black merino is such a sweet combination. I have not gotten used to the active seat feature yet. feels strange to me. LOL.

The floor mats are NOT "M" mats. did BMW drop the "M" mats in 2013?

The LED headlights blow the Xenons away. Much better color and look to the LED's. I only have 450 miles on it. Average MPG is around 15 right now. The first tank of fuel was only around 9 MPG

Got 1200 miles on it now. The manual states we can now go up to 135 MPH. This is a fast truck/SUV/SAV. When it shifts, the exhaust sounds mean. It barks.

If I can post pics on here I will show the LED's VS the wife Xenons. LEDs are cool chit.

Here are the LED's. The corona lights are the same color as the lights themselves. The low beam light comes from the upper part of the two halves. The color is very white. Excellent.

Zaino ZPC results. The paint was hacked by whoever the dealer used to wax the car before delivery. Zaino ZPC using a Lake Country orange pad and a porter cable. No sealer or wax applied yet. All the swirl marks are history. The ZPC is mild compared to many compounds.

I have a 2010 X5M and love it, even did a run around the track at VIR, not a full speed, but I was still impressed.

What a beast! And even better that it doesn't have swirls. I always ask that the dealer not prep the car. They always shrug and Go home with a huge grin in my brand new dirty car

Can I suggest that you try chemical guys on white pad and chemical guys v7. It is hands down the best gloss I have ever seen! Swissvax or souveran dont hold a candle to this stuff.
