    Why does it seem like BMW is facelifting their entire global lineup in the span of 1-2 years?

    And didn't the X5 just get a facelift?

    It does, guess they really want their lineup to be fresh.

    No the 3-series did.

    Geeze... That seemed really quick... I still feel like the new version of the 5-series is pretty fresh...

    Were they going to do an "M" version of the X5? I thought I had heard rumor of an "M" vatiant of the X5 and X6...

    That I could understand though... It was to incorporate the new tail lights right? I figure that they were phasing out mass-production of the old style of light, no need to pay to have both made...

    I'm kind of bummed that they are going to be changing the current bumpers, I love the way that the front one look. Who knows, maybe these are the "M" variant bumpers... They look more aggressive with larger air intakes.

    AFAIK, the 2nd gen X5 is unchanged since it came out in late 2006 except for the addition of the diesel to the US lineup last year. A refresh around 2010 would be right in line with their 3-4 year refresh cycle (except for the first gen X5, which went much longer without updates).

    But you are right, most of the BMW lineup will be new or refreshed in the next 2 years or so.

    BMW always uses that funky black and with patterned camo. I rather like it, that would look cool as a wall covering, or something.

    And they better now make M versions of the SUVs, not even the X6 (aka the answer to a question nobody asked). That would dilute the M brand. If they want to do some sort of performance version, fine but call it something over than M.
