The Fire Orange BMW Individual color made its debut back in 2009 along with the limited edition BMW M3 GTS. The color has been featured since on other BMWs as well, like this F30 3 Series, but to our knowledge, the flashy colors was never used on a BMW X5 M.

This particular BMW X5 M was visiting the European Auto Source tuning shop in California in order to get some aftermarket mods added to it.

From the factory, the X5 M is a well balanced machine; it combines power, agility and great performance with a Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) design. Improving the handling for this heavy beast is always a great idea. The tuning shop added a set of KW Variant 3 Coilovers that give the X5 M better speed in corners and overall better behavior on the road.

Additionally, this BMW X5 M now features BMW gloss black kidney grilles and side markers. It also features a Vorsteiner front lip spoiler, giving the front of the car better aerodynamics and improves its look as well.

The BMW X5 M is the first xDrive all-wheel-drive vehicles from BMW and the second generation was just unveiled.
