I wonder if the different color brake calipers are for EU only?
Overall the more I see these videos, the more I like it. These new wheels are SO much better, I really might consider swapping them in. X3M taillights still bother me

Oddly enough, the new X3 taillights are my favorite part of the LCI, at least on the exterior. I like the interior updates, can accept the front end, and HATE the X4 M rear bumper insert.

Kinda lame that the X4M's wheels are so similar to the 826Ms on the G8X.

They're great looking wheels so I have no problem with it.

They got to get people to come back and buy the LCI. Probably a reserved feature for that.

While X4M may not enjoy a universal appeal,
I like it. Great vehicle.

The tail lights are actually the exact design of the 21" X3 M wheel spokes. Check it out...

Suspension is what I'm looking at closely. I'll seriously consider changing into one of these if they provide improved daily driver suspension capability. Otherwise will stick to the M40i for another few years.

Grille actually looks better in chrome (satin chrome?) than black due to that small gap in the middle where the two kidneys connect. The black shadowline grille looks goofy and gives off Hitler 'stash vibes exactly like the M2C. Didn't like it on the M2C, don't like it now. Just looks too "one piece" in appearance. You'd think the designers would have better sense than this.

The X4M rear end is equally disappointing because instead of giving us new, larger tail lights that look good, they chose to take the easy way out by reducing the amount of painted surface with adding that black lower section. This was done to make the ultra-skinny and boring tail light design appear more proportionate with the rear end. It does make the lights look better and less out of place, but it comes at the expense of cheapening the entire look of the vehicle.

The X3M looks fantastic all around (with the chrome grilles, of course). They did a wonderful job with this LCI. Very impressed!
