2021 F97 X3M / F98 X4M US configurator is now online

No big changes here. iDrive has been updated to v7 and Competition is now a 7k package rather than a separate model. A bit disappointed by the 3.5k M carbon exterior package that doesn’t even include the carbon fiber MPE rear diffuser.

It appears to include it, if you add the option and then go back to the exterior view it shows the CF diffuser.

Very weird that they changed the competition model/trim to a package like the M3. BMW is so back and forth on this.

It says non-carbon, visually upgraded diffuser insert, whatever this means...

Hmmm, I'm really curious to know what the part number for that is, because if it's plastic and cheap and is/can be painted gloss back I want it!

Ah right, this makes sense. And I think you are right, the CF rear diffuser seems to be included (if we can trust those pictures).

The $1200 wheel option. In the spec sheet they call out forged for these.

I think that's only for non-competition models and seem to just be different color (black vs orbit grey)

That is correct and that was already the case with 2020 models. On the 2020 cars (non comp) with 21" wheels the wheels are grey instead of black accents.

The OEM wheels are pretty heavy. Doubt they are forged. Maybe flow forged aka flow formed?

So comp is a package now not a distinct model?

I hope they got rid of the stupid comp badge

There is a 2020 in the Atlanta area with the carbon package. Give you an idea:

Think they have a bug in their configurator. If you select the M Driver's Package it removes the Executive Package entirely instead of just deleting the pano roof.

$7000 for Competition package doesn’t seem worth it

I think it is. Just the sport seats, the sport exhaust and the standard 765M wheels alone will cost way more than 7k.
