Looks awesome. I love BMW's blue! Currently have a SMB M3CS, had a MCB M5 before that and an Interlagos Blue M3 before that.

I am tempted by the subtle elegance of Donnington, but will probably go blue again too.

One thing I don't agree with... you said that Carbon Black is blue. Had it on my E46 M3 and I'd never call that blue. 😜

Stunning! One thing I'm surprised with though is the high stance... the wheel gap looks rather large!

I also wonder if the M front bumper will fit the 40i's and M50is...

That makes sense. I've read about it before somewhere. Now I feel better.

But I just found another annoyance - my surround view alignment is apparently off. The left side view was not stitched correctly with the rest of the image. I read it's a software thing, and have checked camera housing on both sides and couldn't tell a difference, so will have it looked at when I'm in for the first service.

On your light control panel there should be one button on each side pointing left or right. Those are the buttons that control this

OP congrats on the new ride! It's just gorgeous!

- The mats should fit the same...they didn't re-design the floorpan for the M model.

- Others are spot on with the one DRL being on. You likely bumped one of the buttons with your knee on your way out of the car and it turned on the running lights on one side of the car. They'll stay on until the battery gets below a certain threshold (would take a LONG time) or until you get in and either turn it off or turn the engine on.

- For the driving aids, check BMW's YouTube page. They have tutorials showing how those all work. That, or get in touch with a Genius at your local dealership.
Thanks

I just received the mats today and they fit perfectly. Agree the DRL is most likely a user error...

For the assisted driving, I was able to figure out how to set cruise speed based on speed limit sign. But not sure if it can remember an offset (like +5 or +10) instead of dropping from 75-80 to 60 on the first sign of work zone...

Being in Phoenix you should've seen the Carbon Black more in the sun rather than in the shade It shows a lot of blue in the sun.

Right, I did. I always said it was like carbon paper.

However, if it were actually a blue they would have called it Carbon Blue! 🤣

Thatís one awesome ride. I wish I would have gone that route instead of the M50i. Only 2 problems with these X5s, 1st is they look like a lifted 4x4. BMW used to be the manufacturer that had the tight wheel to fender look. Although all the other vehicles have better than the X5 including the X7. The second thing is that there is no radio mute. 50 buttons on the steering wheel and not one can mute the radio?

Push the volume knob. That will mute the radio.

Don't think I've ever seen a BMW with a mute button Different philosophy I guess.

funny when you punch a 2020 M5C into tire rack they give you same mm's but both in 21's(and no tires available, even if you go custom and punch in 22 for the rear). Your (great) pics clearly show that rears are 22's as does the BMW configurator for both options..

good luck with tires. The old M 21 inch rollers were expensive as F to shod and they don't last for very long. and when you REALL need one say on a road trip in florida, well that was a fun time last year for me.

I'd love one of these M5C's just a bad ass ride which you can throw some people and stuff into when you need to. enjoy!
