First 2018 X5 M? | The Build Thread Begins!

So I just picked up my 2018 X5 M! Here are some photos before it goes to get Suntek Paint Protection Film and Ceramic Pro! Everything you might want to know is below.

The Factory Specs:
- Black Sapphire Metallic
- Mugello Red Full Merino Leather
- 21" M Light Alloy 612M Wheels
- Executive Package (basically includes everything in all the packages from 17)
- Bang & Olufsen Sound System
- Parking Assistant
- Night Vision
- Apple CarPlay

Cosmetic:
- Full Suntek Clear Bra
- Ceramic Pro
- 20% Tint on Front Doors and 50% on Windshield
- Light tint on fog lights
- Light tint on white line of rear taillights
- BSM Grills
- BSM Front Sidemarkers
- BSM Side Grills
- BSM Rear Reflectors, but planning to wait for the rear reflector inserts IND made a post about
- BSM Rear Roundel
- Custom Carbon Fiber Exhaust Tips (Akrapovic style looking that I have on my M3)
- H&R Spacers | Front: 5MM / Rear: 15MM

Suspension: H&R Springs (hopefully they are good. read a post about properly adjusting the rear links which can be the difference between stock like feel and terrible)

Tune: Leaning RaceChip or JB4. Not sure if JB4 has CAN Flap control since I read it doesn't work with BC buttons so I'll need a valve controller either way if that's the case. RaceChip seems easier to install and smoother from what I've read.

Feel free to chime in about anything you have input about

It's getting clear bra'd right now, but I have a friend I'm gonna try and see if I can get around to seeing and see what might be different. As of now I can confirm it doesn't have the new M540 cluster or the gestures or any of that.

Was slightly disappointed this M car doesn't seem to get the moving red line

congrats! In terms of tune, I'd stick with Dinan only b/c it doesn't void your warranty

That has valve control right? Installation similar to JB4?

Thanks!
No, It's an adjustable boost adder. Keeps the factory curve to protect the trans, axles, etc at the shift but elevates the overall curve. I added 3psi and dropped 0.80 second from 0-100mph. Factory smooth.

She looks great. Definitely an early '18 build. I'm picking my (late build) '17 up at PCD next week.

Enjoy

That's crazy that my 18 got delivered before all the 17s were. PCD does have a slight delay I guess though. Had to wait an extra month almost when I got my M3.

Yup, mine started production pretty much the last week of August. I wanted as late a PCD Delivery as possible as I still have my M5 until November. The dealer slotted me in for their last '17 (save a few $'s compared to '18 I was told) so they had to start production but couldn't hold the car until November.

I've had clear bra on both my M3 and M5. I'm debating this time around. Thoughts?

What did you end up paying? I'm $1496/m $0 down on $116,995 MSRP.

36 months
36k miles

$0 down
$110,995 MSRP
$99,470 Adjusted Cap Cost

$1,378.32/ month with PA Taxes. Pretty good deal I think.

Yeah that seems pretty good. That truck has a 3k incentive where as the new one has none. My lease is at $1000 over dealer invoice.

Interesting, no incentive on the '18s? Also, I get to NY/ NJ regularly (GF lives in NJ). How often do you tri-state ///M Drivers meet up?

I'm going on the MGRUPPE fall cruise 10/14 thru CT and MA.
