Much Less Camo-New Spy Photo's-F15 X5

I have discovered a never before revealed/viewed Design Element/Branding Element on the new F15 X5. As you can see the new X5 will have an Air Breather just like the recently revealed 4 Series Coupe. In straight ahead 90 degree shots...the swirly camo effectively hind the Air Breather opening. Only a long angled shot could reveal this new feature. See the rest my just published F15 X5 photo's at: http://www.caranddriver.com/news/201...py-photos-news

Nice spy work PalBay, as usual... Please keep the pics coming. I wish you could snap unobstructed pictures of the interior. If my memory is serving me well, the ones I've seen so far (all shot by yourself, I think) have been from behind closed windows with glare... Thanks man.

Thanks. The Test Mules must be parked for the interior shots. The area from where I shoot........The cars are rarely parked in an open non-secure location. Sorry. Always looking though. Thanks for the nice comments. PalBay

I was thinking the same thing. The rear doors also look longer compared to the E70.

Oh my, that car will look great, though X5/X6 need more work done in the interior department.

It looks good, but conservative. The new body style will have to survive 7 years. Won't it look old by 2020?

Length is great for internal room obviously but one of the best things about the E70 is that its not long (compared to a Q7 for instance).
