You mean the blurry pic through a window at a gas station on a testing mule prototype didn't do it for you?! Decision made I guess...

Agreed, wait couple more months.

New F95 seats look way better than F85.. from what i can tell similar if not identical to F90 seats which appear more durable to creasing than F85 seats. BMW just needs to hurry up with F95 release already.. I need to return F85 mid next year.

I have no doubt this will be a beast of a car. But much like the old X5M, the suspension is just too damn harsh, particularly in areas with bad roads. Great for performance driving..... but in an SUV?? How often do you really do that?

I believe the X5 M50i is the best option. Smooth, quiet, comfortable, and still VERY powerful.... even if it doesn't handle curves around the track quite as well.

Does you X5 M50i have DHP and summer rubber?

Last week, I test drove a X5 M50i w/out DHP and no-seasons, and was not that impressed compared to my 2018 X5M. I really thought the M50i would be a nice compromise for my wife and I (X5M is my wife's car but she couldn't careless about performance/handling). However, I tend to drive her car more often than not, and I just wasn't ready to place the order. I'm curious if my impressions weren't fair given the M50i I test drove didn't have DHP and summers. I'm concerned the F95 is going to be priced too much than what we want to spend.
