    I've yet to see it in person but I like it. Looks like the old X5 has gone through a diet and emerges a bit more muscular. It'll also have third-row seatings available. From some angles though, it looks very much like a X3.

    Now thats is a BMW! NO funky butts or werido headlights. I like the agressive designed BMW twin kidney grills, why can't all the other models have that?

    What's with the joystick? Whatever happened to good old gear levers?

    I actually like the simplified design. Hope it works as well as it looks. Nevertheless, I still prefer the good old stick shift.

    Looks like it's good for hauling mulch.

    That looks shoddily made.

    Nah…I think the design is horrible, but I think the interior is probably better made than most cars out there (save for Audi, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, RR, and Bugatti interiors). Jon.

    Looks similar to the new M5 7spd DSG "shifter" or joystick.

    I don't like the look of it. It looks like something you'd accidentally hit with your elbow and snap off.

    LOL and what exactly are you basing that on? I don't think you will find too many people who say BMW uses shoddy materials.

    I actually kind of like the shifter thing. It looks delicate yet sturdy. It frees up alot of room in that area of a car/suv/sav for bigger and better cupholders, muffin trays and such

    You shouldn't eat or drink while driving...it's just a road hazard to have a distracted driver. Why else do you think the cars in Germany don't usually come with cup holders, or if they do, it's a thing that they only do as of late? I remember my dad's S600 (coupe), which had no cup holders. Correction, the space in-between your legs was the cup holder.
