I can't tell if the X5 parked next to the Elantra or vice versa.

Whoever did it was a douche.

As I see more of the X5s I feel the grille I can live with, but the tail lights are too bland. The X5 has always done L shaped tail lights, I don't see why they couldn't do it again.

I just saw this same car a few weeks ago following a Rolls-Royce Cullinan with similar camouflage.

Even with the camo it looks like the exterior changes will be minor over the msport. I'm guessing changes will be similar to the X3M

yea, they actually run them up and down the coast sometimes up to 24hours a day. Anytime you drive on the 101 during the day or the PCH between malibu and Camarillo you will likely run into them also. Not 100% sure but I think they go all the way up to Morro Bay area, just not sure how far south they go.

I live in Solvang and there is a little coffee shop they all stop at 3/4 times a week around 4pm. pretty cool job, just very hard to get

With the camo this looked a lot like the X5 50...but I knew it was the M and it's certain to have the M style front lower larger functional intakes and that rear lower area near exhaust in the M fashion...then the dove tail wing up top like the X3M. I couldn't hear the roar of the exhaust at start up....

It was quiet...didn't hardly hear the exhaust at all...I'm familiar with the X5M exhaust sounds since I owned one up to a few weeks ago...

i had the new x5 as a loaner for a few days. The only other x5 i have ever driven is a 3.0 e53. The new x5M is gonna be a beast for sure as the new model xdrive40i i had in near basic trim was just an amazing car and the taillights were the thing i hated the most before driving and falling in love with it and starting to accept its looks (in non m sport). i imagine m
sport looks/drives even better

I think they need to test it in Cali to make sure it passed all the Cali taxes and regulations.
Oh and Cali cheap quality gas.

Spotted in Santa Monica on 2/22/2019 along Ocean Avenue. I am excited to see how this would compare to our current 2018 X5M!

I wonder if one is the CP and one the base X5M? They have different plates so it appears to be different mules....interesting....

Just imagine how the X5 M50 will compare to the 50 when production starts latter this year (August 2019).
