@Akshay- I totally agree with you Akshay. A Bentley FS Speed in a week is too early but probably AM ordered it much before than he made it public

@AM- Needless to say the Bentley and BMW X5 are great choices. Have fun and ride safe. Awaiting pics soon

Now THAT'S what I'm talking about WOOHOOOO !! My excitement is rather obvious, innit. What are the options you picked, and what's the shade of the interior hide? Just curious, mind not.

Wow that's a very sensible and exciting decision. Flying spur speed is really awesome. Its going to be a stonker providing the best of both worlds.

Please Please do, and a little faster if possible. You own, You drive and You enjoy, but please let us breath in the quintessential essence of luxury that has found a new abode all because of you (and a little help from BMW cancelling your order for the top of the line beemer).

Cheers again! Great choice!
But could you please enlighten us on the options that you have ticked on the list if it is not a problem?. Please do not tell us that the "Flying B" logo pops up when you bring your car to life! I personally do not like it at all, spoils everything for me. No offence though, each to his own I guess

Wow !! BFSS in Champagne color and with those Speed' Rims. Drophead Gorgeous. Nice choice of color. As they say "If it was white, i would look like an Un and if it was Black, Gangsters car"

btw. Did you look into the X5M ??

@AM - Some suggestions on your X5 from my side. I do think you should have gone for the X5 M. Wont you feel a bit less exclusive In a 4.8 as it is now the official escort car fleet of the PM's 760Li. But im All in for the B

That looks very very OTT. As it is, the X5 isn't a good looking car (no offence AM) and the 4.8 is enough powerful.

Wow as good as this looks.I think they have gone a little over the edge with the design.

Personally the x5M doesn't make sense to me ..... and i think the 4.8i would be good enough for the performance i expect from my suv . Also this car would be used for a go anywhere purpose ( not extreme go any where purpose though for that i have the prado) this is mostly a family car for me .

Stick to the 4.8 ltr.makes more sense.
I generally dont see the point in these performance suv's.

Except a single upside of the surge from the 4.8 engine the X5 is a car I particularly do not like. But nonetheless it may be an ugly car but its got the grunt inside. As for the M variant I would rather suggest that you stick to the normal 4.8, I second arjunrudra on that.

But one thing that I do not get is why the beemers look uglier and simpler by the day. I mean, one look at the back end of the X5, and you can easily pass it off as the worst looking car in history (not to mention the morris marina, Clarkson and I have same feeling about this ) So, the X5 as a looker is not the car lookers look out for. Its for those few who wanna travel under the skin of automobiles, in order to get pleasure from them.

The stock X5 looks way better than the G Power thing. It has a different type of AKAD to it.
You are hours away from taking the delivery of your x5 and a Bentley and your handle still reads accord masters.
