I finally got to pick up my new M50i. I'll follow up with some more detailed info later, but wanted to share the delivery pics. I know this sounds weird, but she has some of my old F15 in her. That is a great thing!

2020 M50i
Carbon Black
Extended Shadowline
Alcantara Headliner
Black Extended Merino Leather
Brown Poplar Wood Trim
B&W Audio
Drivers Assistance Pro
Luxury Seating Package
Executive Package
742M Wheels
Acoustic Glass
Heated seats/armrest

iDrive Version: 07/2019.38

Edited to include my impressions so far going from a 50i to the M50i:

Suspension
Comfort is more firm and compliant than the 50i, it is definitely not as bouncy. It only gets better as you move through the modes. On my last G05, I wondered if I made a mistake by not selecting DHP or Air. Not this time around. This is the driving dynamic that almost reminds me of my F15. This is the true progression from the F15, to me anyway.

Engine
I know it does not seem like a huge jump, but damn she freaking hustles. Seriously, it's all there. You wanna go, then damnit you are gone.

Things I got but missed the first go round:

B&W Audio - Was not available when I originally ordered and there was never one available at the dealership so I did not realize what i was missing out on.

Extended Merino - I really liked the Vernasca leather with luxury seating on the last G05, but the Merino is much softer on the upper back.
This option isn't a super must have for me and I would ultimately be happy with either.

Extended Shadowline - Was not available before, but it looks badass against the Carbon Black. (I'm still bummed Black Sapphire was not available)

Alcantara Headliner - Even the shade is alcantara.

Pano SkyLounge - This thing just blows peoples mind when it is lit at night. Especially when caring car is enabled and it fades in and out.

Drive Recorder - This probably deserves it's own post along with the new display features in the cluster.

Assisted Drive View
Here are a couple videos of Assisted Drive View in action. It's pretty awesome that it can determine the vehicle type and display it in the cluster. (Small Car / Tractor Trailer / Motorcycle). Also notice the indicators when you are not touching the steering wheel.

Exhaust
Here are a few clips of the exhaust in action.

It's hard to explain, my F15 had an aggressiveness that I felt was missing in my previous G05.

Looks smashing and aggressive, even w/o the roof rails. Congrats and looking forward to your detailed review - please post your build!

Congrats! You are officially the first owner on the G05 forum to take delivery of a M50i. It looks amazing!! What happened to your previous G05?

Yes, I'll grab some more and post tomorrow. The font seems to be different along with how some info is presented. When you enable the driving assistant the cluster displays an animation of your vehicle and cars in front and while passing.

Emergency braking is now enabled on reverse and cross traffic alert.

I'll work on getting the other goodies together for follow up.

No exterior changes to the M50i vs MSport 50i so there are plenty of pictures with a black grill, my car included in Carbon Black

Not entirely true.
There are changes to the trim finishes available and wheel choice.

This was in the press release...not sure my eyes can see any differences. Maybe someone can point out the changes.

"The new BMW X5 M50i and X7 M50i models feature front bumpers with larger openings to allow for greater air flow to the cooling system. The rocker panels and rear bumpers have been sculptured to set the models apart from the rest of the line."

They might just have the areas open which are normally closed. I'd need to see a side by side comparison.
