Are the side vents ("bimmerangs") functional on the F15? I don't really mind the look, but would hope that they are not just tacked-on.

They're the 300 style wheels, an option with the X6M and X5M

This is what BMW says on side vents or what BMW calls them -"Air Breather" for the new 4-sereis coupe, which also features these vents and the Air Breather will be a design feature in all new BMWs.

The Air Breather, an aerodynamically effective aperture behind the front wheels, offers another pointer to the sophisticated aerodynamics of the BMW Concept 4 Series Coupe. It draws a dynamic path between the two light surfaces of the car’s flanks, replicating the prominent form of the stylistic front-end elements. The Air Breather brings together the priorities of BMW EfficientDynamics and time-honoured BMW design, and works in tandem with the Air Curtain in the front apron to ensure an effective reduction in drag around the wheels.

I'm sure there are more changes to be made, but I cannot tell that much of a difference...yet.

I am guessing NY Auto show in April. The car will start production in August so that is the last auto show before prod and also US is where the X5 sells most, although that will probably change in future.

Right....huge appetite for luxury SUVs....reason why Lamborghini did the debut of their SUV in China....reason why we will see X7.

Amazingly US is not the #1 in 7-series, S-class sales any more.

BMWBlog confirms an August 2013 start of production, and "anticipates" a public debut at the New York International Auto Show.

Production of new 2014 BMW X5 starts in August
