Our photos of the AC Schnitzer BMW X5 from the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
In 2013, the new BMW X5 celebrated its market launch. Now in 2014, there is another reason for the new SUV giant to celebrate, because the tuning experts at AC Schnitzer have taken it into their workshop to give the third generation X5 a facelift.

Here’s an extended road trip report by one of our F15 X5 owners of his F15 X5 xDrive35i xLine.
The X5 eDrive plug-in hybrid model has now been spotted undergoing testing. These may only be a couple of photos, but we already know what the F15 X5 looks like. We expect the X5 eDrive to launch sometime around late 2014 – early 2015.
As for specs? The X5 eDrive Concept model was unveiled at the Frankfurt auto show last September and featured:

Congrats to BIMMERPOST member Nightcreature for taking delivery of his X5 M50d.
BIMMERPOST Member and M3 owner John just took delivery of his all new 2014 X5 xDrive35i. He shares with us his lowdown on general impressions of the car, along with order and option opinions.
Hamann wheels certainly have a way of fitting in well with the bigger vehicles in the BMW stable, and look right at home on the new X5.
For now, Hamann is showing off two styles of their wheels on the X5, namely the Design Edition Race “Anodized” 23 inch wheels and the “Anniversary EVO” 22 inch wheels.
But rest assured, Hamann is certain to later unveil a full range of wheels and “optik tuning” kits.

A new 2014 F15 X5 owner shares his Performance Center Delivery and ownership experience with us:
just got back from the Performance Center Delivery of my 2014 X5. This was my third PCD and it was just as great an experience as the other two. I’m a bit tired from my 1200 mile drive home, so I’ll post some pics and add more info to this thread over the next day or so.
