Fantastically awful. It's as if BMW said "let's design an uglier version of the Q-series" inside & out.

Good - interior, side profile, and the fact that the X5 can finally go off road.

Bad - the beaver tooth grill and hyundai / rav 4 taillights.

Even with the big grills, I think it looks great.

Will the 40i get an M40i version anytime soon? Also does anyone have pricing guides for the G05?

Hey that's a very nice X3. Wait, I mean X5. Yeah, X5.

That interior looks like it's so much more high quality. The previous generation was horrible. BMW looks like it is cleaning up its act. May get back into a BMW sooner than I thought.

you can tell the rear lights were inspired by the Porsche Macan.

BMW absolutely nailed it. Looks incredible. Extremely modern and retains this classic X5 lines. My F15 officially looks dated.

My folks have an LCI M sport in carbon black with those massive wheels.

BMW could easily sell it in a showroom today, it still looks just as modern as the day it rolled off the line.

F15's interior wasn't horrible per say but it was a warmed over E70 from inside. Unacceptable for a complete redesign. This one finally looks modern and is easily best in class.

I’m pretty impressed with the look of the G05, the one thing I couldn’t stand about the F15 was the giant circular fog lights on the front bumper, glad they got rid of those!

Can’t wait to see the ordering guide to see if other options are available like the Remote Parking (granted it’s more of a gimmick/trick) and Night Vision. Also found it interesting that the Parking Assistant mentioned in the full press release only mentions parallel parking, where as all of the other new models (5, 7, and X3) can also do perpendicular.

Nope, it's being introduced on the X5 and X7, assume it will eventually make its way to the 5 and 7 series LCI

PS: isn't the central A/C unit identical to this X7 prototype? 🤔
M50i designation is being saved for later introduction with new 530HP V8, but before LCI, hopefully.

I genuinely feel they did a good job on this inside and out, but the rear end reminds me of the current Jeep Grand Cherokee a lot.

I like it! The only question is do I like it more than something else for the same money. Can't wait to build one and compare!

kidney grills!
analysis of design: large kidney grills allows for maximum airflow, unheard of styling, and reduces manufacturing cost in millions by reducing number of parts.

Haha, some people here are just recreational complainers.

Trying to compare lights to cars with indisputably different designs.

Those grilles are big, but WAY better than the F15's stupid pencil mustache.

With the right colors (and probably blacked out grilles, as they should be), this will look spectacular. The interior just murdered my desire for an M550i. Now I have to wait and decide if I should get this or hold out for an LCI G30 or the 8GC.

Sigh, progress is beautiful.
