Here you go.....First Real Life look at G05 X5.....PalBay's Patented #PalbayStreetStance Photo Series.....What it really looks like on your Street....NOT....over processed Launch and Auto Show Photos. Also, PalBay's varied Angled Shots....give you the best look period.....of the brand new G05 3D Rear Taillight Assembly. The big G05 X5 grille doesn't look so big in real life....Seems a little more in proportion to the overall size of the vehicle on the street.....The #PHEV Version has some extra badging....still covered with black tape. There's an M Sport Pack G05 mixed in with the #PHEV version. Clearly a fresher look with the G05...when you see the F15 and G05 back to back.....Thanks. Palbay

And not in that terrible white color.

Is there something on the headlights? If not, I'm not a fan of the bottom half only daytime running lights. Looks very odd.

Is the “street” supposed to change the way the G05 looks? It’s not a transformer.

The original post clearly stated they were street shots, not company-created shots.

They are nice enough to share the first street shots of the new G05. I have no clue why you are busting their chops.

Very, very much a "Transformer"....I and many many other enthusiasts want to see it on the street.....In action....Not a posed "Static" Shot...See the body/suspension movement....Street Shots/Movement Shots change the Vehicle Dynamics and therefore....the Photo.....Regards

You’re saying the physical characteristics change when the G05 is shot in motion?

Anybody can cherry pick a message and make whatever meaning out of it they want.

I think its cool that he took the time to share these photos with a bunch of enthusiasts interested in this new model as it looks on the street. Thank you OP.

The 22's look ridiculously large and the tires ridiculously thin. The 20"'s don't look great...not loving the wheel choices for the G05 based on these pics and the configurators.
