BMW X5 M Competition Gets Spray-On Autoflex Fire Orange II Wrap

Scrolling through the Bimmerpost forum, we came across this dazzling Fire Orange II BMW X5 M Competition.

Unbeknown to us, we thought it was someone who had splashed for an expensive BMW Individual paint option but it is actually a spray-on ‘wrap’ similar to Plastidip.

Subsequently, we found out that there is a product on the market that simply blows away everything that came before it. It’s called Autoflex and is essentially a high-end professional paint job that can be peeled away.

AutoFlex is perfect for professional body shops, paint shops, and custom shops looking for the finish of a high-end paint job at the price of a wrap. It’s available in matte, satin or high gloss, and can be sanded, buffed, polished and waxed like a standard clear coat.

ROAD TEST: BMW X5 M50i and X5 M Competition

TEST SUMMARY

While the X5 M is an extraordinary achievement in the dark art of making an SUV handle like a sportscar and boasts a superbly effective engine coupled with a world-class transmission, the sacrifices aren’t worth the rewards. The ride is too intrusive on a vehicle that will likely function as luxury family transport, and the price – certainly on par with its rivals – seems far too high when BMW offers an M50i with 90% of the talent at 64% of the cost.

Too often, the experience doesn’t justify the price of admission. That applies here, too. While the disorderly X5 M showed us a good ol’ time, it left us battered and bruised. We’d happily fork out less money for access to a more cultured performance. M50i, it’s your turn to shine.
