Carbon fiber Mirror caps and engine covers on F95/F95 Models

Iíve noticed that all the F95/F96 Competition models that are currently being sold in the US donít have the carbon fiber mirror caps nor do they have the carbon fiber engine covers. Instead they have the gloss black mirror caps and the plain plastic engine covers.

Curious to know if anyone has an X5M/X6M Competition with factory carbon fiber mirror caps and engine cover? All the European competition models have those option standard and also come with 625 HP instead of the 617 HP in the US.

OP - nobody in the US has the CF mirrors or engine cover. Those details are unique to the competition models in ROW outside of US. Similar to the absence of the LED Skylounge in the US on the F95, BMW has deliberately chosen to vary its option offering in the US (and BTW it has nothing to do with regulations). I’m sure they have all sorts of market research supporting their decision, but it is extremely frustrating the (US) consumer who is often a ready and willing buyer for these options.

I think the Competition engine is rated at 460 kW = 625.4 PS (metric horsepower) = 616.9 hp (mechanical horsepower). Germans use PS and Americans use hp.

Similarly, 1 UK (imperial) gallon = 1.2 US gallon, and that's partly why UK mpg numbers are higher.
