I’m still waiting for my delivery but I asked my SA about that today. So far no answer. If it is only software, can someone please clarify?

My car is coming with parking assist, so it should have all the cameras.

Have you seen all the meteors, ufos, and highway plane crashes recorded with these in Russia? The drive recorder is worth it just for that, but of course the primary benefit is recording an accident. Insurance companies must love them.

It's definitely a Software thing at most may require a hardware upgrade that's simple. But after seeing 2020 order guide and knowing this option is only available part of executive package, I doubt they make it available for us

The current bmw marketing says it is available now as an added option to parking assist. That might change for 2020 but my impression is that it can be ordered now with parking assist.

But, then again, they never make these things crystal clear. I plan to get an answer from my dealership, who said he had to talk to the regional rep, and will let the forum know what they say.

Can you give us a source on that? Everything we have seen so far says it will only be available in 2020?

Drive recorder looks to be bundled only with the Executive Package for all X5 models according to the 2020 ordering and retail pricing guide.

Perhaps the order guide is incorrect for the X5. ZPK on the X7 guides lists it correctly = 5DN, 6DR, ZX3 for $800

They sure made it sound like it would be added to 2019 options.

Iíve kinda given up on it. The dealers havenít got a clue. I might try to see if it can be retrofitted in my car a few months down this line. Or find someone who can capably install a drive recorder. I donít want wires hanging all over the place if I can avoid it.

I have this same vehicle/color combo. However, the dealer said at the time I bought it that the black grill was not yet available (November 2018). So, mine is chrome. Iím still waiting for the black kidneys to be made available to me. Your post is dated May. And yours are factory issued?

The part has been available for awhile now, someone posted the part number if I remember correctly, but they wonít be available from the factory until MY20.

I have been waiting on the dealer since November for black kidney grills for my X5, already paid for them, but was told BMW isnít making them yet. Obviously that is not true since youíve had yours since at least May.

Since Nov? Geez, cancel, get your money back and go buy them online from IND like everyone else did. You can get them from a couple places, here's one.. https://www.ebay.com/i/153524329513?...SABEgIjWvD_BwE
and here's another https://emnotek.com/products/ind-pai...iABEgK_afD_BwE

This should be the part number for the shadow line grill according to what was posted awhile ago.

Here is the message I received this am from BMW

Hi,

Thanks for contacting the BMW Genius Team. Thank you for your patience.

At this time, our records indicate there are no Shadowline Grills available to the 2019 BMW X5 on shopbmwusa.com.

The parts staff has the expertise to assist you and are eager to share their knowledge. For your reference, a list of our authorized BMW centers can be found on www.bmwusa.com; simply select the ďChoose your local BMW CenterĒ link located at the top of the page.

You can also stay in touch with the latest in lifestyle, vehicle accessories and performance parts at our website: www.shopBMWUSA.com. Though Shadowline Grills are not currently available for online order, we update it frequently.

For your convenience, BMW Genius Team members can also be reached via the BMW Genius Hotline at 1-844-4GENIUS (443-6487):
- Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time

So, my question: Is the blacked out grill for the 2019 X5 only available from third parties, not from BMW? I did click the links (thanks for posting them) but at least one of them seemed OEM.

Now I have just ordered the black grill. Hopefully mine will look as good as the one in MystroX5’s photo.
