Thumbs down X5 M build oddities as compared to the X5 M50i

Tell me if I am reading this right.

On the M50i the M Sport Exhaust is standard but on the X5M you need to get the Competition package in order to have it.

On the M50i the black exhaust tips are standard with the extended shadowline trim. On the X5M you can't get black tips unless you get the competition.

On the M50i you can get the Laserlights for a $1000 stand alone option but on the X5M you can only get them with the $3600 executive package.

Acoustic glass not offered on X5M (some may argue it is needed more on this model than on others)

X5M like previous M models seem to have certain packages bundled, nothing wrong with that.. you want to get executive package anyway.. regarding Msport exhaust its not a massive increase over stock in sound anyway, in fact usually its mid pipe that's slightly different that is if F95 follows suite from F90 chassis regarding exhaust.. black exhaust tips just powdercoat them gloss black, should not cost you more than $60 (although we have yet to see if rear tips are removable) if its anything like F90 they should be..

I do want exclusivity. That is why I want the urban green that is on the debut X6M that we can't get, so we get Donnington, so fricken boring! Can't even get black wheels. Who offers the ultra aggressie version of their vehicle without the ability to make it more aggressive?

I mean at the price point these will sell for I wouldn't get a non-competition model. If I had waited instead of getting my 50i I'd go X5MC no questions but like others wait for the individual program
