     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Thought I would start this as the first ones should be heading home

Please post any photos/videos of LCI M competition models!

Here’s the first walk around video I’ve seen:

The lack of tire shine is ridiculous. Somebody clean those tires ASAP.

X6 appears to be much more appealing than the predecessor. Still - X6 sales are far behind X5 sales.

No itís definitely not just you my friend

Cars needs to be Black once again to tone down the weirdness

Otherwise this is definitely the best of what BMW ///M has to offer currently

Does anyone know when the X5 LCI will be available? Wife's due to replace hers in October.

Edit: Found this in the X5 forum: The 2024 BMW X5 and X6 will make their public debut at The Amelia Concours díElegance in March. Production of both models will begin in April 2023 at BMW Group Plant Spartanburg, South Carolina

They are available now. The first build weeks have completed. Some members here have received theirs. Hopefully we can get some photos here!

The bumper cover between the grill and lower intake could be reworked with a little body color custom paint and it would actually look pretty good. And I think the back already looks real good.

This is actually a pretty good result compared to the other monstrosities like the X7 BMW is putting out these days.

Lexus makes such great cars(but boring) why year after year no change to the horror grills, now Audi grills are clownishly large. I think Bmw is waking up, fhey didnít wreck Their big seller X5 & 6, & yes they need to asap change the glossy black under the grill,
Hard to believe that passed the final
Cut.

Only if they kept the pre LCI front bumper but left the rest of the changes it would be the perfect combo.

Never understood the logic behind paying more for the same car with less storage and headroom for more money just to look a little ďedgierĒ on the outside.

X5 > X6 always for me
