HEY BMW.... Quit showing my exact phone as a digital key that actually works because you still have not rolled out a working digital phone key yet. There is a big difference in concept features and features you can actually produce working for the consumer.
Did your car answer ?

Totally lol. BMW is already doing it in the interiors.


///M grille lights are next.

I just installed LED lighting in my kitchen and may add it to the bar as well. Super cheap and you can change colors , full RGB , chase or follow patterns, use solid flash, etc.

Can't believe that person still works at BMW. With the Cayenne Coupe and the new GLE Coupe, it'll be tough to choose this over those other two.
Still looks like an Aztek.....
No it does not ❗️

Get an eye 👀 exam stat ‼️
Yes it does!!! Although pretty cool to meet up with an Aztek fan, gotta love those Pontiacs
Well you completely suck at standup comedy, so what's next for you ⁉️
Need a Kleenex?? I apologize if I hurt your feelings
I am good thanks.

Just get your eyes checked.

It looks absolutely nothing like an Aztek.
Yes it does, it always has and always will. Happy 4th
They look absolutely nothing alike.

There is zero design language shared between either cars.

Your either making a very general statement or you definitely need to be fitted with eye glasses.

And ugliest car in America? Not by a long mile... Here you have the ugly Mercedes G-Wagen which is a glorified milk delivery truck that sells for $130K-$150K as it is pretty much a tall, boxy and ugly vehicle driven by pretentious douches.

I'm interested to see whether DHP can be combined with the two-axle air suspension.

air suspensions are bouncy, even in the X5 so it would be counterintuitive to have an active sway bar with one. Also the DHP is very specific and uses active dampers no an air suspension which is why I mentioned the active sway bar as what you're really interested in

Those who like it I am glad you enjoy the new model. Choices are always good as long as they continue to offer this and the X5.

I appreciate this post simply for acknowledging the different tastes that all of us BMW lovers have. I personally love this new design. While I do not like the decreased interior room, I do appreciate the general aesthetics.

I wasnt a fan of the second gen X6, I ended up going to an M4 instead but this looks great, roll on the launch, I hope we get the hybrid version over here.

From the brief there is no mention the rear bench is not lowered like the Cayenne coupe, right?

Nothing to write home about. Just looks like any other BMW SUV. Is it an X3? An X4? An X5? And X6?

Kudos for not embellishing the nose with massive vulgar nostrils like the X7 ����. Coupe & SUV remain a contradiction in terms of design, weight and rear seat & storage practicality, but hey I guess some folk enjoy the flashy big image it projects. Probably costs less than a JT extension.

X6 M50i - $85k
Cayenne Coupe S - $89k

I feel the X6 is a much better package considering the Cayenne will need $15k in options to match the standard features of the X6, but looks wise the Cayenne Coupe is much better looking.

Will be a tough call for a lot of people.

This isn't a big deal for many. But I don't understand why BMW moved away from the traditional love across the door handles. BMW called it their traditional character line, but all the new BMW's don't have it. The last new ones to do so are the g30 g01 and x2. I know the e60 didn't have it either, but almost every BMW had it. It just doesn't look like a BMW without it.
