They now refreshed pages and added configurator

The Blue X5 is a true M version, right? There is a small badge in the grille and the front is a lot more aggressive! Not a normal M-Sport for sure. M color, M rear view mirrors

Has the front kidneys always been different on the X5 and X6? Prefer the kidney shape on the X6 over the X5. Not sure what the designers were thinking with the X6 rear though... I known it's subjective but 🤮

I think M Performance models now carry an ///M on the grill perhaps. I just saw a '23 M850 that had one

These are not full M models, but they sure do look close with the mirrors and grill emblems. There is even a s engine in some models.

One will have to look pretty carefully to visually differentiate. Presumably brakes, maybe different grill emblem, rear exhaust, and interior will give M-light versions away.

They look pretty nice. Not sure of price diff from m60i to X5M (competition?).

That x6 rear is WAY too busy. Always felt too the 8 series suffers the same busy styling on the rear.

Not a true M car. This is an M-Performance car. They just added even more 'True M' bits to the M-Performance variants on the LCI similar to what they did with the X3/4 and X7 LCIs. They added winged mirrors, M badge in grille, split trim on steering wheel and M colored stitching on the steering wheel.

Mechanically it is still more similar to the 40i than it will be to the M LCI (although we don't know exactly until the M LCI is revealed soon)

Yes! I played around with the M850 configurator and saw for MY23 it also had M mirrors and optional carbon fiber roof with a gazillion ///M's all over the place. Hard to tell now...
Is it Real or is it ///Memorex?! (for those old enough to remember&#128565

Pretty soon it's going to be like the fake Rolexs and LV bags where they take you in a back room and slap a few ///Ms on it!🤣🤣

The grill/bumper seems too elongated, looks really odd sticking out. Not a good change.

That MBB M60i sure looks good to me. Now if only they'd fix the crappy iDrive 8 and give us back some dedicated buttons for the climate control (like the A/C on/off button) and other key functions.

Oh, and I hope that the DHP is still available as that is a mandatory feature for me after having it on our 2016 X5 35i.

I will admit, I do kind of like the grilles on the X6, they do appear slightly more modern vs. the more traditional design on the X5. This does fit in with BMWs new design strategy of doing more "out there" designs with certain models where the target buyer is more open to a more extreme design type. I'd be interested to see a render with them on the blue X5 M60i. That's the only thing I like about the X6 though. I know taste is subjective, but I've just never considered the overall shape of the X6 very attractive.

Thereís no laser light option in the BMW Configurator. Also some of the options used to be standard. Like Air Suspension, itís not an optional package?!! 🙄

The M Sport looks so good, can't stop looking at it.

The LCI X5 M Sport / M60i is now the best looking BMW (at least until the LCI X5M is unveiled)

Great job BMW, they nailed this one!

Pff really... I really find it quite strange that you even get special M bumpers, unique M badges to have your 'normal' BMW to look like a real M one. I get the M-Sport badges up untill a certain point, but this is gone to far IMO.

I like the "quad tips" on the M Sport. Noticed that. Might have to retrofit that to my '23!
