Considering how great the new BMW F15 X5 looks, getting a couple of them in one place, thanks to Marcel Lech Photography, is a real treat to end the work week in a great way. This one features a full M-Sport package with both exterior and interior additions, making this X5 an even more attractive vehicle. At the front, the F15 X5 takes design elements from F30 3 Series, while in the back it’s similar to other current X series models. The interior stands out with its arge LED screen and premium materials used in every part of the car’s interior mixed together with sporty design elements, like the stitching, sports seats and a sports steering wheel seen on this particular model.
The exterior, designed by BMW designer Mark Johnson, was approved in November 2010 and production finalized in 2011 allowing the first units to head to customers in late 2013. As you may already know, an F15 BMW X5M version is currently under development, so pretty soon we are going to enjoy some high-performance driving with the current X5 model. BMW claims the new X5 is made of ultra-high-tensile steel in the body structure, thermoplastics in the side panels, aluminum in the bonnet and magnesium in the instrument panel support to make the new BMW X5 lighter. Depending on the model, the new X5 is as much as 90 kg lighter than a comparably equipped model from the previous X5 generation. A whole range of model specific equipment, style options and finishes is also available. READ ALSO: 2014 BMW X5 Test Drive To many owners out there, an Alpine White BMW F15 X5 looks best! And with an amazing BMW M Sport Package added to the SUV, the X5 looks even more aggressive, powerful and emphasis performance and power both on the outside and the inside. Combining the great looks with high-quality craftsmanship and you have a great choice for an every day vehicle that’s more than capable of any additional heavy duty work that gets thrown at it.

Laurel BMW of Westmont, IL, is selling on eBay a full scale replica of the new BMW i8. Ahead of its launch, most of the BMW i-certified dealerships around the country have received a full scale BMW i8 model to be showcased to customers. Made of fiberglass, the i8 replica comes with functional LED lights but It does not drive nor has an engine or transmission. You can not open the doors and it does not have an interior. And furthermore, the wheels do not roll. The eBay ad say that the BMW i8 replica should weight about 500 lbs since it was “carried in” by four guys. It is hollow underneath, about a quarter inch thick and it has bracing inside so it is very stable.
Essentially the car looks place in any spot you put it so we can see this popping up in the future in clubs, bar, restaurants or even in design exhibitions. As of midnight, August 23, the bidding price is up to $8,200, not bad for a purposeless vehicle. The 2014 BMW i8 has a base price of $135,700 but some dealers are asking as much as $100,000 over the MSRP. A recent one-off BMW i8 sold for $825,000 in Pebble Beach. Check out our exclusive photos of the car!

There are several ways to tune your vehicle and make it stand out in the parking lot. Being a fan of less is more, I certainly welcome every attempt in creating something clean, classy and completely amazing. This can also be applied to this Black Sapphire BMW 650i with PUR Wheels . The combination of custom wheels and lowered suspensions fits perfectly! SR Auto Group aimed to offer a viable alternative to riding on stock on wheels and managed to accomplish with the BMW 650i. Wheels are pained in the Brilliant Silver finish which provides a much needed contrast appearance with the exterior paint job. The wheels setup shown here is sized 21×9 in the front and 21×10.5 in the rear. While this may sound like an aggressive setup, the smaller profile of the tires matched with a custom wheel setup ensures great handling, appearance and ride comfort.
As we are progressing further with our showcase of BMW tuning on our website, we would like to hear from you about your own custom builds or others you have seen out there. Let us know in the comments section below.
