Doesn't look like a facelift to me. Headlights and tail lights are exactly the same. Maybe a slightly different front bumper at best...

Looks like a German spec to me since there are no sidemarkers and we do not have amber light down here.

I do not think we are seeing a facelift here.

my .02

edit: well it is a Diesel, so maybe It'll get differnt bumpers if at all?

edit2: The plastic wheel arches look "flat" compared to the pictures in the 07 brochure. Furthermore, why is the Fender primed (or plastic?)

looks like a cheaper version of the X5 because of the global financial crisis
