Default Trying to identify this thing

The tires are wrong, no flared rear fender, rear bumper cover is wrong, and doesn't have quad exhaust tips. But it sure does have a lot of M badges... Just wondering if there was some sort of M package for the X5 that maybe justifies what's going on here. Anyone know?

For comparison, mine is below.

Correct. It is the E70 X5. It does come with ///M Sport body styling but no badge on the rear.

I remember hearing about an M sport package, but had no idea what it entails. So it's a better handling 3.5 with some interior and exterior bits? That makes more sense.

thanks!

I am unsure about current outgoing models, but for example my friends 09 335i Coupe Manual White/Red came with M Sport body styling which included M steering wheel, M door panels, M sport wheels but the power remained the same at 300hp/300tq. Its funny because none of these parts were ever present on the real ///M car. Also, handling remains the same unless otherwise noted but all the M sport receives is different wheels and better tires.
