Richard Aucock provides some interesting details on how the new X5 has more X5M DNA than some might think. For example, systems such as the DTC profile and M-specific xDrive profile have been brought down from the touted X5M into the new standard X5.
BMW Performance parts for the X5 and X6 were recently released at the Geneva Autoshow last month. Until now all we had to work on were the live shots taken @ the autoshow itself. Now it seems, BMW is putting out the official wallpapers and photos to go along with more information about these cars and available accesories.
We will update this thread as higher resolution photos become available.

Bimmerpost is coming to you live from the 2010 NY International Autoshow. Although the BMW Press Conference won’t take place until 3PM EST today, we’ve managed to sneak in some shots of the 335is coupe and the Alpina B7 AWD (both world premieres) for you.

With the release of the all new 2011 BMW X5 LCI came news of a newly introduced M Sport package for the X5. Details have since come out about the package, but pictures have remained elusive BMW has put up an official picture of the car up on its own website, but only that single photo in a very small size has been released thus far. Thankfully, its only taken about 24 hours for these … CONTINUED
Just a few updates. We’ve added a whole host of new high resolution wallpapers of the new X5 LCI which are in the typical BMW style of stunning photography in a stunning location with top notch lighting. In addition an all new video has been released on top of the ones from this weekend, which we have added to the thread as well. Check it out and enjoy!
With the LCI X5 photos released this weekend it was only a matter of days, or hours until the first photos of the M-Sport package were to arrive. Here is the first official photos straight from the BMW website. We are hoping some larger resolution pictures come out so we can further dissect the car, but as of now it just seems like the bumpers are fully painted and the stylistic details of the LCI are further massaged.
Details surrounding the all new BMW X5 LCI for 2011 have been officially released along with new wallpapers, videos, technical details and pricing and package information. Well worth the look.
Here are the first official photos released of the 2011 BMW X5 LCI (facelift) model! Enjoy the set of photos, courtesy of Autobild.
BMW’s sport utility and crossover vehicles had a most impressive showing in the Off-Roader of the Year awards. The BMW X5 was voted “Off-Roader of the Year” in the “Luxury SUV” category, and the BMW X1 and BMW X6 came first and second in the “Crossover” category. Even the outgoing BMW X3 took second place in the “SUV” category. The BMW ActiveHybrid X6 took the Eco Award for its innovative powertrain.
Its not clear if these are very well done photoshops or real photos which have been slightly degraded, regardless, the result is the same. This is the X5 LCI which is coming very soon. Photos leaked from the MOTOR-TALK forums
We bring you the full 2011 BMW Model Year ordering guide (in PDF) for all 2011 models. This guide lists ALL start of production dates, available options, colors, packages, and related notes for every single BMW model for 2011.
Overall, the 2011 BMW models are not significantly changed. The new models are the BMW 5-series and Alpina B7 along with LCI updates to the 3-series coupe and convertible. See inside for 2011 BMW models pricing and details.
Due to be revealed very soon, BMWs ultra popular X5 SAV has been caught testing in South Carolina with only but the bare minumum black tape across the bumper. But the complete bumper re-design is completly visible and seems to be nicely washed as well. We love this LCI which maintains the classic good looks of the X5 and ads a little bit of a fresh spin with the new bumper graphics. Well done BMW!
