I'm still bummed that the 3rd row seats isn't available until December production. But it's a great car so I guess I can wait.

The digital key in the phone doesn't work on iPhone???? Only android?

Also bummed that it looks like no problem for UK to order M-Sport and Off-road package together, not to mention the Panoramic Sky Lounge. Otherwise, love the videos and seeing more of the interior. Can’t wait!

...and other markets getting 40i with sport exhaust option w/ZMP, and likely DHP as well with the 40i.

Where's the video of BMW executives deciding which markets get which options, b/c that would really bring in the forum comments?!?!

I mean seriously, who at BMWNA makes these decisions? I thought I saw it all when BMWNA didn't equip the 2018MY X3 M40i with the M Sport Steering Wheel, but all other markets received it (and no, it's not about the DOT, airbags, blah, blah, blah...it's the same freakin wheel in the 5er)

I currently own a 2016 X6 M Sport and I have experienced many heartaches. The MSport package is really a street level package and if you take it off road you will discover the heartaches I have experienced.

If you plan to take your X5 M Sport off road you will want the X-Line instead. I will never buy another M sport as my driving needs take me into off street conditions.

Didn't see any video mention the Dynamic ambient lighting.
It'll pulse for basic CC messages such as a door being open.
Pretty cool stuff.

iPhone NFC has been locked by Apple. Supposedly iOS12 will unlock it so developers can use NFC.

In the video titled "Driving Dynamics", the presenter mentions the "M-Sport Exhaust System" for the 40i, yet the ordering guide doesn't mention anything different about the exhaust for the M-Sport Package. Do we think she is talking about an optional M-Performance Add-On, or will it come sounding like that from the factory?

Look at those kidney grills, just the right amount of ventilation for a high performer? Seriously, does bmw think people are idiots? This is how they chose to address the hideous grill?

This is just as bad as the Subaru Tribeca fiasco from years ago

Yeah, I hate the lame marketing spin. I just see tons of internet experts now insisting that the grills need to be that big for adequate cooling. A few examples that come to mind...

"Twin turbos, for no lag" followed by "Twin power turbo" because we did such a good job convincing people they absolutely needed twin turbos but now we want to use a single twin scroll turbo and we're afraid people will feel like they are taking a step back.

The hideous front hood cut line. The justification "They need to do that for pedestrian crash standards". Miraculously the ugly cut line hoods are all going away now. Weird.

We are changing our model designations so sedans are odd numbers and coupes are even. Say hello to all of the even numbered gran coupe sedans and X series also with 4 doors.

Would be helpful..

Having 5-6 videos is fun up to a point, but it might be useful to have a really well organized film pointing out the new features in a sequential manner.
New in the trunk.
New in the front
New in the cabin
New on the IT interface
New unlock etc.
Trying to remember which film shows which new new gizmo is nearly impossible.

Strange thing is, there are no media reports of an X5 being tested. Heck even the new GLE, which is further out than the X5, was given to the press for a drive. They must still be hiring the marketing department in Spartanburg, oh and the web team, unlock the online configurator already!
