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?

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.

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.
