Question Help me spec my 2020/2021 X5 M50d Order!

As the title implies, I'm about to place an order for a X5 M50d in Germany.

I've pretty much decided on my color combination of Black Sapphire Metallic w/ Ivory Merino Interior. I think with the extended Shadowline Trim it really sets off the look of the car.

Link to my configuration: X5 M50d Order

NOW: I've got pretty much all the options spec'd but wanted to turn to the experts (owners) and see if there are any options you recommend or see as unnecessary, now that you've been driving the car for a while. Let me know!

I keep going back and forth on the following options:
Sky Lounge
Crafted Clarity
Bowers & Wilkins
Nightvision
Full Merino leather vs Extended Merino leather

I have very similar specification plus Bower Wilkins. If you are thinking about M50D go for make order very quickly because model M50D will stop in August. After will be only 40D engine

Oh really? That's odd. My order will go in next week, so I think I'll be ok. My dealer is saying to expect a September delivery, even though I hope that's just a conservative estimate.

Yikes! Well for what it's worth, I hope your production starts soon. My situation is a bit different I'm told, since this is technically a VIP order, but we shall see. I'll be updating once I get the ball rolling and make up my mind about options.

Make sure you get the air ride if you ever want to lower the car.

I was trying to decide between the Piano Black and the Fineline with the odd shaped aluminum inlays... Feel like the Piano Black might lack depth, but then again I haven't see either in person.
