One would think. The issue being that the "Alcantara in Upholstery Color" is apparently white, no matter what color your upholstery is. Maybe in the future BMW could fix their options to read "Alcantara Headliner - White," or "Alcantara Headliner - Black." To avoid the issue of "Alcantara Headliner - Guess What Color."

Well it just let me do that. Full black merino, xd5 and it shows a white headliner with black leather. Makes no sense, but...

Can't copy the site, but when I build an X5 xDrive 40i M Sport with Black Full Merino, then select "Alcantara Headliner in Upholstery Color" it does this:

We're adding

Alcantara headliner in upholstery color

+$650

Ivory White Full Merino Leather

+$3,350

We're removing

Anthracite headliner



Black Full Merino Leather

-$3,350

Net Change

+$650

Ask your dealer for the VIR. That will show your build as the factory sees it.

Dealer says "individual" can mean different things, and is usually coordinated with dealer - they're in touch with Spartanburg, so hopefully will be OK when we receive the cars - will keep forum posted. Good news is that "Alcantara in upholstery color" doesn't specify white (it did in the 2018 Ordering Guide), and the actual code is XD5A in the current Ordering Guide, and doesn't specifically state it replaces anything other than the standard headliner. Cars still in Quality Check, where they have been for a couple of weeks....

I just received the following from my CA who was sent the attached on-line grid showing the various combinations for MY 2020. My car was ordered with XD5 so now looks like it will come with the Night Blue headliner. Scheduled for week 37 build (next week), so fingers crossed.

This is what I originally thought...however my CA insisted XD5 would be white using Full Ivory/night blue Merino. Now the BMWUSA configurator when selcting XD5 shows White in the pic.. very confused

I completely understand but I wouldn’t trust what the configurator shows given that it lists Black Sapphire metallic as a paint choice for the X5 M50i which is not available.

I would prefer the night blue headliner and pushed my CA hard but he pushed back so much harder. insisting the head liner in XD5 would be white. told me he confirmed it area rep...he told me if I over rode his info and did XD5 if it came in white I would need to leave a depo and sign a doc saying I would agree to buy vehicle with white headliner. I guess I am going to end up loving Anthracite Alcantara

I'm sure that the Anthracite headliner will look great as well. It's a shame that we have to deal with this confusion when custom ordering a $100K+ vehicle, but that's the gamble we face as early adopters.

Your CA sounds like a genuine douche. I wouldn't put up with that crap. Be sure to reflect his attitude in your survey. Either way, it sounds like he'll be back to selling headphones at Best Buy when the recession hits.

Curious, why dont you want the white? I think that would look pretty good with the ivory/blue. I'd chance it and spec XD5.

So, funny story...

Back in July I was getting ready to order my 2020 X5 with my CA. We were playing around with his builder at the dealer. I was torn between full ivory and ivory/night blue full merino. No price difference so he just went with ivory/night blue w/upholstery color alcantara just to be able to get the MSRP so we could talk price. I ended up deciding on full ivory and ordering that but CA didn't realize his "test" order would immediately lock in due to the individual options so he couldn't cancel it. Mind you I am ordering a 40i not M50i so not sure if this makes a difference, but his little accident showed up at the dealer end of August - I can confirm, the headliner is night blue. See attached.

Finally, some visual confirmation! Your story is similar to mine with the same thing happening to me when my CA put in a test order and it stuck but without the Alcantara headliner option, so I was able to preview my car before it arrives in a few weeks albeit with the anthracite fabric headliner.

Hello guys, my dealer just told me I can't get the XD5 option in Canada, the interior is the ivory/night blue full merino. It's so frustrating. No specific reason just can't have it. What do you guys think?

I can confirm that I received the "Alcantara in Ivory White" and the interior is "Coffee Full Merino Leather". I have the X5 M50i and it was built about within the last two weeks. I would have probably preferred black or even coffee. However, the ivory is not too bad. I think if it was built and ordered again today the factory would have installed the black headliner because the online configurator now prohibits you from selecting "Alcantara headliner in upholstery color".
