November’s car of the month is this beautiful BMW X5 M.  The customer upgraded the wheels with a set of stealth looking HRE’s in flat black. At the shop We added a custom Xpel Paint Protection film kit to protect the from from high speed rock chips.  We also cleaned, polished and protected the paint with Optimum Polymer Technology’s Opti- Coat 3 Year coating system.

The customer chose The X5M over the Porsche Cayenne due o the performance and cost difference of the vehicles.  The X5 M giving him the most bang for the buck.

BMW’s X5 received a complete redesign a couple of years ago, growing a bit and really coming into its own as the leader of the luxury SUV segment.  The M Sport bits go well here, BMW carries over the M theme from its 3 and 5 series, leaving the exterior of the car mostly unchanged and highlighted by tasteful M bits rather than being over burdened by too many sporty design details.
The X5 M is powered by a newly-developed 4.4-liter V8 M engine delivering 555 hp at 6,000 rpm and 500 lb-ft of torque from 1500 to 5,650 rpm. This new M engine is the world’s first with a pulse-tuned exhaust manifold encompassing both rows of cylinders combined with high-performance twin-scroll twin turbo technology.

The X5 M sets new standards of acceleration, lateral grip, steering response, balance, and stopping power among high-performance activity vehicles. It accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill in 4.5 seconds and feature impressive delivery of power from the V8 twin-turbo engine which provides maximum torque of 500 lb-ft from 1,500 and 5,650 rpm.  From a handling standpoint, it’s superb balance through careful tuning of XDrive, Dynamic Performance Control, and Dynamic Stability Control with M Dynamic Mode for linear buildup of cornering forces.  These capabilities place the performance of the X5 M on par with the performance of other recent BMW M vehicles.

The interior sports 20 way power seats, a really impressive back up cameras system that gives you an overhead view with the help of 3 cameras. It also surprisingly quiet inside.  The M is equipped with BMW’s Featured for the first time on a BMW M model, the 6-speed M Sports Automatic transmission enhances the high-performance character of the BMW X5 M through its instantaneous response, direct connection to the engine, and a high degree of shifting comfort.  The new M Sports Automatic is commanded by an electronic selector on the center console and offers the driver not only the Drive mode, but also Sport and M Manual modes for absolute control of gear selection.

It was a pleasure working on this vehicle and the customers continued support of our shop is greatly appreciated.
