I could tell a perceptible difference in steering weight due to the engine size difference and more when both (40i M Sport and M50i) were driven in Sport mode.

You're option on X5 with M Sport appearance (ZMP) is X5 xDrive40i or X5 M50i.

ZMP package on xDrive50i was discontinued when X5 M50i was launched. 2020 xDrive50i is ONLY available in xLine.

There maybe some leftover new or used 2019s xDrive50i with ZMP on dealer lots though rare depending on market.
Current BMWs - '20 X5 xDrive40i M Sport, '20 BMW M550i | Past BMWs - '03 E39 540iT M Sport, '06 E53 4.8is, '11 E70 M Sport LCI
