Thanks Kimo... As far as a comparison between the 50i and the M, I would definitely say the M feels like a totally different animal all together. I haven't had a chance to stretch her legs yet thanks to the weather and weekend traffic, but I can honestly say the M suspension and the non run flat tires made it feel like I was driving my M3 again. The 50i is a fast and powerful truck with lots of torque but it lets you know you're in a big heavy SAV...the M like I said feels a lot more like a car but, as far as the difference in power between the 2...the M feels faster but not by much. I don't know maybe its because I haven't figured out how to set up M mode yet. I was expecting to go WOT and hold on for dear life but that wasn't the case lol. Hopefully the sun comes out today and I can hit the road before the Sunday drivers come out so I can get a true feel for the beast

I'll put it on sport and as far as traction control, do i need it on for launch control? I haven't been able to figure that part out yet

Looks great man. Congrats. Get a tune, Velos or AA and you'll be much happier with the M.

Sounds good, i never herd of hex. I was talking to 2 guys up there yesterday and they told me they were talking to someone with an X5M a few weeks ago who was telling them about tunes. I'm assuming that was you lol

Congrats on the X5M!
My favorite color (outside of Space Gray, of course!)
Definitely go for a tune.

Launch control: M mode, Transmission in Sport mode. Hold brake pedal and steadily rev engine above 3k. When the checkered flag appears in the information display between the speedo and tach, immediately release the brake and stomp the accelerator. This is much like the old "line-lock" technique we used in high school when we were drag-racing our friends, so expect to be catapulted when you release the brake.

I have found the best setup for all out optimal performance is in M mode combined with Sport Mode; NOT Manual Mode (because you'll be banging into the rev limiter if you're not very careful). This setup keeps the optimal revs for track use and spirited driving. I tried this at VIR and was seriously impressed. I don't know how, but in this mode, the X5M always knew exactly when to downshift to keep the revs up for maximum performance during braking, turn ins and corner exits... really exciting.

Personally, I always run in M mode, just not Sport mode unless I know I'm really going to use it, otherwise you will find yourself riding around town high revving like you are ready to pounce on anything that moves.... a little overkill in daily driving IMO.

Enjoy, my friend!
