My 550d Touring in Rhodonite silver metallic - Greetings from Germany

Hello guys,

My X550d has been stolen in May 2018, just before my house by high jacking and prolonging my key fob signal (see here some pictures of it https://f15.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1396539).

The new G05 could not be ordered yet and also the time would be to long to wait for it with only one car at home, so in the end I had to take what my BMW dealer had in stock…

I have to admin it could be worse…

It is a M550d Touring in Rhodonite Silver metallic. What a nice color, also the Mocca leather fits perfectly. I would never had ordered it like this to be honest, but in the end it looks nice I think. Break in was just finished yesterday and I tried it out a bit on the Autobahn. I doubt that my F80 is faster from 100 to 200 to be honest...what a punch!!

So here finally some pictures:

Directly after delivery:


And after detailing at my friend Richard in Switzerland:








































If you click my signature, you can find the high-res version of the pictures.

(English speakers will appreciate your license plate frame - I assume that's the name of the dealership.)

Haha, also spotted that

Anyway, many congrats to the OP on a stunning car. I absolutely love the colour.

On the engine, is that the same triple turbo 3.0 diesel engine as in the current X5?

Yes indeed, that is my dealers name. Every time I post photos I get into danger to get banned due to the „use of offensive language“...

No it is a quad turbo with 400 hp, but still the inline six 3 liter...

Beautiful car. Stunning colour.

Clearly you like that country parking spot, the stolen X5 M50d pics were taken there as well?
