Next Gen X5......

Roundel just came today. There is a photo of the new X5 in camo and they say it will be significantly longer. To me the photo looks distorted, like it has lost some height. Looking at spy shots on here the last few months, this looks different. Also, in 2 issues they have said the increase length will allow a 3rd row seat option. Do they not realize that has been an option on the current model? I had the 3rd row on my 2007 and have it on my 2010 X5d

hopefully, there will be an increase in length and hopefully it will justify an improved 3rd row. I bet BMW can also make it lighter, too. Any news on when we would see the first reveal?
