The upgrade from G01 to G05 should just include the better headlights in my opinion.
But you're comparing a fully optioned out g01 to a base g05 head lights.
Then BMW shouldn't call the base lights on the G05 Adaptive LED. My G01 stickered at $67k, it isn't unreasonable to assume the G05, with a higher base price would have the same LEDs from the M40i as their standard lights (it was also pointed out the lights from the X3 M40i and the X5 40i are the same model number, but they detune them for the G05). It was maybe a dumb idea on BMWs part to have the worse lights standard, since they have gotten poor ratings from the IIHS, and a lot of people care about those safety ratings.
