BMW Helderview – New X5 Launch

Helderview BMW officially launched the new BMW X5 last Thursday evening, 20 February, with a cocktail event at the Dealership.

Jason Greer was the MC for the evening and the select group of guests were entertained by the multiple award-winning South African super group Sterling EQ.

Adding more than a dash of creativity to their passion for food, Red Pepper tempted everybody’s taste buds. Jaco Uys, a Director of Helderview introduced the New X5 to an appreciative audience.

The X5 did not fail to impress and was definitely the star of the evening. Enough said!
