Talking X5 M50d - Black Sapphire over Ivory - Last of a dying breed.

Well, finally got around to getting some proper pics of the M50d. Have to say I'm really pleased at how this turned out. For those wondering, the truck is pretty much loaded with every option except B&W, Sky Lounge and tow hitch. I figured this post might help some people decide, as I couldn't find many pictures of non-black full leather interior X5s, let alone Ivory Merino.

Mods:
RaceChip GTS Black (nice bump)
H&R 12/15mm Spacers

All pics taken in "Sport" mode, so not lowest setting.

Nice ride.... M50d here as well. Be interested to hear your thoughts on the RaceChip GTS performance. How noticeable is the effect?

Thanks in advance.

So far I've only put about 750 miles on it, but so far I'd say it's a solid investment. I opted for the Bluetooth connectivity on mine, so switching maps is a breeze.

That said, I haven't really played with the maps all that much yet, but you definitely feel a little extra power. The 40 HP bump is there, but not as significant as the ~75ft lbs boost. It feels more "open" at WOT if that makes sense.

Fuel consumption has gone down a bit as well, but nothing crazy so far.

It's my first Racechip, and I'm impressed with the quality so far. Installation was a breeze compared to the JB4 I had on my F80.

I will update once I get some more seat time with it.

Nice ride you have! I really love dark wheels on a black car...now I am sure that I need to buy new black rims for summer or somehow get my current 22" OEM´s powder coated to black
