Thanks for the side by side. It actually makes the grill look more proportionate here as others who have seen it have mentioned.

Found two x5 parked next to each other. The white one is xline, the carbon black msport.

When compared to each other visually, the msport looks so much nicer especially from the back. The reflectors on the rear bumper on the xline are placed lower and are in fact around 2 inches longer. They also emphasize the plastic black bumper which looks really cheap in my opinion.

Here are the pics i took.

Shouldn't those 741M wheels be staggered? Those rear tires don't look like 315 width.

Good point Scott.

The carbon black makes the x5 look smaller than it actually is. I took a couple shots in partial sun, and i was really liking the deep blue tone in the color. When i looked at the white x5, i hade to double check those 19" because they looked really bare and skinny.

Point is the black color hides the width of the x5 making it look like it small but its not. The 741 are staggered with 275 front and 315 in the rear that is a massive tire. Between the color and the lack of msport brakes it tones down the contrast effect to the wheels in my opinion.

Thank you for confirming the tire size! Looks great! Those are the wheels we ordered.



Also I noticed the exhaust finishers/cutouts are larger on the MSport. I like it!

Wow, excellent photos. I do like the white, but it would have to be with the M Sport package.

I'm not liking that silver-grey rear bumper piece on the x-line. That, removing the chrome edge trim, and the larger intakes on the front nose make the m-sport worth it.

Found my build's exterior twin sans Laser headlamps at BMW Woodlands. I think the orbit grey 744 wheels look even better than the configurator images.
