BMW X5M / X6M to Get Touchscreen Screen and Apple Carplay Beginning This Summer

* Image used is from a 7 Series and for representative purposes only. *

The German price list and catalog for the X5M and X6M which will take effect in August, has been released. The two models (and presumably the standard X5 and X6, as well) will receive several technology options, the most important of which are iDrive 5.0, a touchscreen LCD, and Apple Carplay.

The current 10.25" screen will remain, but it will become a touchscreen panel, as introduced in the current 7 Series.

Great news.

Bang & Olufsen is a premium audio system ($4-5K option depending on the BMW model I think). I've had B&O before and also Harman Kardon. B&O is significantly better and cleaner at high volume.

In the past (E60) era, the supplier was DIRAC and that was subjectively even better than B&O today.

Price list attached refers to "B&O". BMW must reserve Bowers and Wilkins for the 7

Correct. It's still an BO system as the optional upgrade. From the attached PDF:

B&W is a completely different level to B&O, I doubt this is the case as this system would cost like $10k lol

The Canadian press release said 3 series is getting iDrive 5 with July production. Car Play in September with a free upgrade for July and August builds when available.

Should be same for US.

No car play allows you to interface with your phone in a more in depth way on the screen. its not extremely useful when you have siri eyes free.

Complete retrofit, should be 2,500 or 1,300 after you sell your current system. I'm not the least bit interested in the touch screen as I think they are awful in execution but carplay would be great. I really prefer the knob to all touch nav systems. Hopefully we still keep the knob and can retrofit cardplay.

I hope the rest of range will get this update too, especially F8X, considering there are still quite long lifecycle remain. (4+ years for 4er)
