This is a tricky question to answer as there are no solid answers. Although we can’t be completely sure, online sources estimate that 4,000 BMW X5 4.6is SUVs were produced worldwide for the 2002 and 2003 model years.
The BMW X5 was a midsize luxury crossover SUV and the very first SUV ever produced by BMW. Its first generation was produced between 1999 and 2006.
The 2002 and 2003 model years—known as the 4.6is model—were powered by a 4.6-liter V8 engine that produced 342 horsepower.
This was a sport model and available in four colors (black, Imola Red, Estoril Blue, and Titanium Silver). It featured 20-inch wheels that were fitted over larger brakes than those equipped on the stock X5. It also had additional rear fender flares along with different front and rear bumpers.
In 2004, the 4.6is was replaced by a 4.8is model.
