BMW is so stupid to black out their logo and not the X5 badge!! lol...and with those kidney grills, anyone can identify it's a Bimmer.
Hardly any changes in this new model except for the front and rear bumpers.

Something about this face-lifted that doesn't look right. And I don't know what it is! I just can't pin-point the flaw! And it's killing me!

It has lost it's macho/muscular look? Seems softer to me now.

Looks more like an MUV that hopes to give the impression of an SUV!

A facelift should have more than this, not just a slight re shape of the bumpers. The front is okay acceptable but from the rear the designers have really lost it. The old one looked better from the back.

The ugliest of the SUV lot ! Sad that the facelift was just minor cosmetic; expected something better.

Can someone jot down the difference?

I think the front wind-screen is more up-right! And the glass house seems to be a little different! These, apart from the bumpers, are the subtle changes I've been able to put a finger on!

Is it just me or does the sloping rear end make it look more like the X3?
