Thank you! I'm trying to decide what the next mod will be. Im leaning toward a carbon lip and diffuser.
Which lip and diffuser are you thinking?

I'm leaning towards the RKP for both the front and rear. I really like the 3D 'style' front lip but I've found the fitment can be tricky.

Very nice... Im on the same boat 🛥... I like the rkp diffuser and i know i should spend the money and get the real rkp diffuser bc the rkp style diffuser just looks off in certain pictures...as for the front, i was thinking about the vorsteiner.. Either way i cannot wait to see the pics

I like the vorsteiner front, just can't decide on the rear diffuser either. Anyone doing their rear spoilers also?
I have ~6 weeks to decide. Figure at this point, just wait till Black Friday to order my next batch of mods!

I still think the E70 X5M is best looking. So looks like F95 has unchanged torque spec. For most driving, you probably can't tell. Hmmm maybe I should downgrade.

Gonna be posting soon an authentic RKP front lip recently refinished in satin clear if you guys happen to be interested. Great condition overall and practically looks new after the refinish, shoot me a PM if you are interested

Both pure stock, Iíll be surprised if the new X5MC is faster/quicker than the new X3MC. My wifeís X3MC is 11.7 at 119mph and 3.45 0-60mph stiock.

I REALLY like the exterior/interior design of the F85. New X5M is pretty big.

3.45 0-60😮 That's fast. That's roughly what I'm doing with a tune and downpipes. The little brother is flexing on the older sibling!

with out a doubt the new X3MC is a very capable small SUV! Also the color urban green on the F95 does look very very enticing!

nice wheels!

Ok. I was in the same boat of continuing to mod my F85 but just saw the new F95 at Petit Le Mans and itís definitely better looking in person. Very aggressive both in the front and the back.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm definitely eager to see it in person. It would have to wow me in looks and performance to justify the cost.

I had no performance increase going from E70 X5M to F85, E70 felt more raw but performance delta was not noticeable enough for a change in car happiness. I drove my brothers F10 M5 stage 1 tune and I honestly felt like it was in the same ball park as the F85/e70 M both stage 2 +. My guess is the performance upgrade F85 to F95 will be negligible and not worth a change for that reason. Parents just got a new G05 msport. I like the tech and exterior but again that cosmetic upgrade is not blowing the F85 out of the water (i even think the F85 looks better). The interior upgrade from the e70 to the F85 was a substantial but not performance. So, if the G05/F95 new interior/exterior is not blowing you out of the water and the performance increase most likely won't then... F85 to F95 upgrade not recommended.

In short if you are upgrading bc you're expecting some sort of quantifiable increase in car happiness or performance I'm gonna say no. I upgraded to the F85 bc my E70 was just getting old. Am I happier 3 months and $7k - $8k in mods later, not justifiably. If you are factoring in depreciation and deciding now is the time to get rid of the F85 bc the money is right, then yes. If your rolling in dough get the Lambo Urus or a G05 and something exotic on the side.

F85 and E70 X5M are both amazing cars as im sure the F95 will be.. no matter what anyone says, a worthy upgrade would be something that's substantially more expensive and the $$ would have to make sense. For what these cars do they are the pinnacle and there isn't much room for improvement.

Good luck with your decision but if you're happy with the F85 and you're in a good place money wise with the car then wait for a CPO F95 to hit the dealer and get that.
