So the X3M looks like a Santa Monica hipster gamer with Halo stickers on his ass. Huh.
^^^ Naw, I think you're close but a touch off the mark bruh. The tail lights are actually the exact same design of the 21" X3 M wheel spokes. Check it out...

I prefer the pre LCI personally, but maybe I am a bit bias.

Although, I think I wouldn't mind an Isle of Man Green X4M =)

Just received an email back from person at BMWNA who originally told me website would be updated on June 16 - then told of delay. She says now she is still waiting to hear when it will be updated - so no clear date - she does not know. Will keep all posted when she writes back

We don't know yet, no allocations for production have been released.

The PR release stated regular X3s will begin delivery by August and X3Ms by September.

But in early July we'll know more about whether production allocations come out this month.

I'm conservatively estimating X3M allocations will come out in August for September delivery, but I hope I am wrong and it happens sooner…

Just FYI, somebody already got an allocation and production number!

Check it out here:

So glad I purchased a 2021 X3Mc

The 2022 looks terrible.

They changes are minimal and they look VERY similar.

Both look great, but I prefer the 22.

And I suspect most will too once some time goes buy.

Let's enjoy our beautiful machines!

Anyone have the pricing guides yet, or know when they’ll be out for the X3 M.

Had some F97 image captures from a few years ago so placed next to the LCI. The front angle non-LCI build I was doing at the time didn't have rails, but otherwise exteriors are to scale and same angles.

They look sooooooooo similar 🤣. Seriously (my opinion though).

Both look great.

I wonder how much the new taillights will cost. It's the one upgrade I wouldn't mind making to mine.

Agreed. This is the biggest difference in my opinion.

Also, I like the rear bumper of the pre-LCI better. Don't like the piano black surface.

Max Well - these are great comparisons. The pre-LCI front photo is a touch grainy compared to the other. But it's still nice to see the subtle differences.

I still prefer the former instead of the latter. And I'm not sure why people like the new tail lights. But we all have unique tastes.

Does anyone know if the LCI X3M/X4M have the more "emotive" start like the M3/M4? Those things sound mean when you start them up and it blips the revs.

That would be a cool feature to have & I loved it on my F87 M2.

I'm actually ordering the X4M Comp (F98)

Surprised to read so many negative comments about the new X4, I get it though, it's a bit of a Marmite car (hope this translates to the folks outside the UK).
We I'm ordering one in Brooklyn Grey and I think it looks the nuts! Gotta wait until at least Sept but I think it will be worth the wait and looking forward to feeling the difference between my current X4 M40i. I have had 3 X4's now, started with the 3.0dM, then went down to a 2.0d M (rookie mistake I know) and then the previously mentioned M40i which I love.
I'll update you all when it's delivered,

Any suggestions on the options are well received? Any negativity please save it as i'm too old for that sh1t.

I have 2019 X4 M40i. Great car - handles better than previous Audi(S5) and Mercedes (C43AMG). Definitely much more fun to drive. Riding on 20" wheels - look much better - may go to 21's (?). Just waiting to see what the X4M has to offer - in addition to 473 engine which they are putting into M3/M4's - once the Order/Price Guides are available (courtesy of f82fanatic I hope).
