First Edition BMW X5 M and X6 M Competition Limited Models Annouced

High performance, maximum exclusivity: the First Edition variants of the BMW X5 M Competition and BMW X6 M Competition.

October 19, 2020

Munich. Supreme power, an imposing thirst for forward progress and extravagant styling allow the new BMW X5 M Competition (fuel consumption combined: 13.0 – 12.8 l/100 km [21.7 – 22.1 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 296 – 291 g/km) and new BMW X6 M Competition (fuel consumption combined: 13.1 l/100 km [21.6 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 301 g/km) to carve out a unique place for themselves on the world’s roads. Their performance attributes set new standards and now they are also raising the bar once again in terms of exclusivity. First Edition specification accentuates the effervescent and distinctive character of the BMW M models in the luxury Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) and Sports Activity Coupé (SAC) segments to particularly stylish effect.

Precisely coordinated design cues for the exterior and interior lend the special-edition takes on the new BMW X5 M Competition and new BMW X6 M Competition the status of intoxicating rarities at the high-performance reaches of their respective segments. Their air of exclusivity creates the ideal environment in which to enjoy the unmistakable driving experience laid on by a high-revving V8 engine with two turbochargers and 460 kW/625 hp, M-specific suspension and M xDrive all-wheel drive. The two special-edition newcomers will be produced at BMW Plant Spartanburg in the US in a limited run of 250 examples each and can be ordered with immediate effect.

The BMW Individual Frozen Dark Silver special paint finish available exclusively for the special-edition models showcases the exterior design of the new BMW X5 M Competition and new BMW X6 M Competition to extremely impressive effect. This matt paint finish ensures the muscular proportions, clear forms and signature M details of the body design come authentically to the fore, regardless of how the light hits the car. The two special-edition cars can also be specified with the BMW Individual Frozen Marina Bay Blue special paint finish. This exterior shade is one of the BMW special finishes now available ex-factory for the BMW X5 M Competition, BMW X6 M Competition, BMW X5, BMW X6 and BMW X7. These special paint shades are increasing in number all the time.

The high-quality paint finishes team up with M light-alloy wheels in star-spoke design with a Jet Black, high-gloss finish available exclusively for the special-edition models. The wheels (front: 21-inch, rear: 22-inch) are fitted with mixed-size tyres. The exterior styling also includes selected body elements made from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP). Like the M Carbon exterior mirror caps for the two special-edition models, the M Carbon rear spoiler for the new BMW X6 M Competition has an understated feeling of the race track. An M Carbon engine compartment cover is likewise part of First Edition specification.

BMW Individual Merino full leather trim in exclusive bi-colour Silverstone/Midnight Blue ensures the interior and BMW Individual paint finishes fit together neatly. Black Alcantara inserts in the seat bolsters and contrast stitching in Sakhir Orange emphasise the sporting contours of the M multifunction seats. The eye-catching contrast stitching also bring distinctive flourishes to the door panel trim and instrument panel. Taking its cue from the leather-covered instrument panel, the BMW Individual headliner in Alcantara is likewise in Midnight Blue.

The high-tech and extremely lightweight material CFRP also features in the interior of the special-edition models. Adornments include Carbon Fibre interior trim strips available in a special, market-specific design. The silver-coloured “First Edition 1/250” lettering – which is applied to the carbon-fibre strip before the clear coat seal – highlights the exclusive character of the special-edition models. If these interior trim strips are specified, the model badge on the cover for the cup holders has the same design.

First Edition X5M and X6M

I like the two tone/texture seat but not a fan of the off-white oyster color. A black and red might look cool!

Frozen Dark Silver is definitely a pretty color, saw some pics of an M8 vert on instagram and this would be one of the few cases where I would actually contemplate a matte paint despite all the hassle.

Frozen paint is a bitch to take care of so it is not for the ocd owner. You can’t even fix/polish minor hairline scratches without a respray. “Never again” is the theme of frozen paint owners on the forum.

Lol unloading the 2020/2021 for the 2022 LCI. Just like the 2018 Black Fire edition.

Agreed, beautiful colors but I wouldn't want to take care of that paint.

Not sure why BMW decided to come out with these "First Editions" months after the regular F95/F96 production began.

What premium markup is BMW going to charge? $10,000k for the headache of maintaining a frozen color? Not worth it.

BMW finally decided to do what I already achieved minus CF caps and red stitching.....

Mine is 2021 X5MC in MBB with SO inferior.
PPF Stealth to achieve Frozen look + you protect paint and less maintenance.
The car also has ceramic coating on the body, wheels and the calipers (which were painted red as BMW didn't offer the X5M owners the same choice of choosing caliper color when ordering let's say a M50).
15mm front and 20mm rear H&R spacers to get flush look.
IND painted Roundels front and rear as well as wheel center caps in Black to match the rest of the trim.
Door handles were wrapped in black vinyl + Xpel as well as the fin.
Since front taillight housing was screaming Chrome I decided to wrap them with Xpel lightly tinted film to achieve a more stealth look.
20% ceramic tints on the side and 50% windshield.

It's my daily and I enjoy every minute of it.
Unfortunately there are no other products as of now on the market for these cars as they are so new.
Enjoy pics

What's the hassle with matte paint?
Its a whole process to keep clean. Different finish requires a different technique to cleaning, it can become stained, and any imperfections (like bird poop) need to be taken care of fast or they'll ruin the paint. In general, matte paint has a much higher upkeep and maintenance.
