    Interesting X5 M Prototype Video (official)

    This video is available through YouTube too but when I watched it, the quality wasn't too good and it loaded very slowly.

    Here is a better quality version of the video, enjoy.

    Caution: Driver (a BMW engineer) talks in German.

    Location: Nordschleife

    Verdict: impressive performance for a SUV.

     as far as I remember X5m was very fast at the Ring doing something in the range 8-25

    Re: Interesting X5 M Prototype Video (official)

    I love it how RC is getting the same car as me because suddenly I am getting a lot of information on the car I previously was not aware of! :)  Thanks Christian!

    yeah, it'sfunny how quite a few of us jumped into th XM series. some without second thoughts, some with a million second thoughts

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: Interesting X5 M Prototype Video (official)

    Thanks RC for posting. The quality is really better and the vid highly impressive.
    Did you see how the driver starts at 240 kph (!!) on the “Döttinger Höhe” to wag the car?

    The driver in the vid does’nt use the paddles as they are not yet installed. He apparently used the shifter in manual mode. In addition the Navi contains the previous software version.  

    Still I’m use a cautious driving style in accordance with the manual. But I can hardly wait until break in period is over!! Smiley Unfortunately the weather is very bad here and so I  drive the Cayenne most of the time as its still available. Of course the X5M is equally well suited for bad weather, but somehow I want to drive it only on the "special days" and preserve the feeling having a new car.

    I know, that is contradict for a short break in period, but.....Smiley


    Kind regards, Conny

    Yes, I also think it's cool to have on the M-Board a little X5 M "corner" where we can exchange our experiencesSmiley
