This really is an awsome spy shot. There is so much going on there I almost have trouble figuring out X3M VS X5 VS X7. All of them look cool except one, might be the GT or something.....

I've tried my best to put the vehicles identified by the OP (thank you for posting!) in order from the front of the line to the end, with small additions/tweaks from myself and others. Please chime in with corrections.

No one needs an M anything, especially an SUV. If his wife wants a quick grocery getter, more power to her.

I had just changed that, probably as you were posting. However, I listed the X4 model code instead of the X2 - fixed. Thanks.

By the way, and this is a bit tangential, but I figured that I'd ask while I know you are online - will the non-M V8 X5 be called the M50i or just 50i? Seems the former makes sense given the new conventions, but it is just listed as 50i in the future model thread.

It was just 50i when it first came out. I should know in a couple of months if this is going to hold for the public release.

Nice video. Looks like the spy photographer is keeping a low profile in that bright yellow convertible C7... That Rolls Royce SUV looks like a hearse.

Besides, I'd be driving it as much as her!
