He said he is ready to take the orders, production will be some time Oct/Nov with expected delivery Dec/Jan.
I would be gobsmacked if you were to get any sort of discount on a new model, or that BMW would be making any sort of contributions either.
Maybe after they've been in the showrooms for 6 months and sales are slow, they might be open to deals to fill build slots, but very rare for a deal for such an early build from a UK dealer.

However, if you don't ask, you don't get.

You might get a better idea if you do a build via Broadspeed etc., site and see what gives, if next to no deals of list, you can bet there will be nothing forthcoming from the dealers.

No off road package or full air suspension available with M-Sport?

And if you want DHP (ZDH) you have to get M-Sport. (and 50i)

The options seem very limiting. Bummer.

Agree with you not just for the UK but also for the US. If you want a discount wait at least 6 months. I'm planning on trading my wife's car in for the G05 in the spring. By then inventory should build up and BMW's legendary incentives will start kicking in.

Full air suspension is available with M-Sport on xDrive 40i models BUT only when you order the third-row seating option.

Couple of questions - I have my allocation and am putting the order together.

I see ZLC Leather Credit -$1450 and ZOC Option Credit $-190 both with EOP of 11/18. Does that mean I can get those credits if I order leather?

For the air suspension, is it capable of adjusting to different ride comforts or only for raising/lowering the X5? Since DHP is gone from the 40i, I'd still like to have something to change the ride in frost heave Minnesota.

Thanks! Very close to having my order done. Options galore, different than the F15 was were it seemed there were better packages.

I have comfort rear seats on my 2016 50i as well and I agree it was worth the cost. I did not see this option on the GO5 (and it was not listed as standard on the pricing guide). I am hoping that it is included in some other standard item.

Edit: Maybe comfort rear seats are a part of the standard "4FL Travel and Comfort System" which is standard on both the 40i and 50i.

I noticed this as well. My guess is they are saving these options for the 2020 or 2021 model years. I am keeping my 2016 50i for another few years and I hope by then the GO5 will be more refined and have a better selection of options.

[QUOTE=Influence;23418126]Notice that 40i buyers will also miss out on the M-differential as well if there is no DHP.

What exactly is the M-differential. Is it similar to the torque vectoring differential or does it just lock up the differential to avoid wheel slip?

B&W with 1400 watt and harman kardon 600 watt!! Believe me no difference for the sound quality even on louded voice. No bass...
Forget about the sound quality...does the B & W have that neat pop up speaker in the dashboard like the B & O does? (I was kidding about forget the sound quality).

DHP really spoiled me. I won't order another BMW without it. It is that great.

Question, anyone know what item "840" is? A couple of the wheel upgrades state that they will add "840" to the order. Yet I don't see anywhere in the order or pricing guide were it indicates what 840 is. I was thinking maybe the tires? But then I noticed that both the 22" and 21" wheels will add "840", and those would be different size tires obviously. So I'm confused.

840 - Increased top speed limiter

It's in the pricing guide and oddly not in the order guide and buried in the wheel option.

I suspect with chassis improvements and weight reduction, particularly in revised moonroof design the M Adaptive Suspension with the 21" wheels will handle amazingly on the 40i variant.
Thanks
But what weight reduction? It looks like the G05 (4813) is 133lbs heavier than the F15 (4680)??
Not overall weight reduction. Weight reduction where it counts, up high. So, technically, lowering the center of gravity in the new model.
