You can never go wrong with black color, but I did not expect that the interior will also be in the shade of black. It really looks nice though.

So, I'm tempted. I'm looking at the nuts and bolts, comparing what this model gives you, compared to the 2020 BMWUSA site configurator for a M50i as comparable as you can get to it. (MY2021 configurator not up yet, and I don't want to dig into the 2021 prices, which are fairly comparable anyway) So here's what I get:

2021 Dark Shadow Edition: MSRP $119,495
Comparably configured and equipped 2020 M50i: $110,480
Difference: $9,015

MY2021 available options NOT present on the Dark Shadow Edition, according to the specs listed by the OP in this thread:
Dynamic Handling Package
Luxury Seating Package (Ventilated and Massage seats)
Space Saving Spare
Trailer Hitch

Note that the OP pictures in this thread show Rear Seat Entertainment, but not listed in the specs.

This does not include MY2020 options that are removed for MY2021, to include Ambient Air and Night Vision. Also does not account, if buyer wants to add the $850 Captain's Chairs, which is the only available option for the Dark Shadow Edition.

So, if everything is accurate, it looks like it's about a $9k premium over a comparably equipped "standard edition" M50i, for the matte paint, exclusive wheels, and exclusive combination of interior materials (available in other options, but not in this combination). And the car is well equipped, but not fully loaded. (as I would want it to be)

Grrrrrrr....

More in-the-weed details:

- It looks to me like the seatbelts have special racing stripes on them, but don't appear to be quite full //M stripe colors.

- Just like the Rear Seat Entertainment is shown in the pictures, but not listed in the specs, the door pictures show the buttons for the ventilated/massage seats, but it is also not listed in the specs. I wonder if they might be included after all, and the specs are just not quite 100% yet. (the BMWUSA website doesn't have any details at all)

EDIT: Yes, other auto news websites are reporting the Luxury Seating Package in it as well, haven't seen anything yet about RSE officially. Think we need to find the official BMW press release.

I gotcha, I went straight through bmwusa.com after the link didn't work and went to special editions and other X7 pages and nothing for the special edition X7. They should have added the tuned M5/M8 S63 or Alpina BX7 variant motor, something more exciting than just colors, same silliness with the gold accented M5 🤨

It's the full ///M stripe colors. They're just really thin stripes to pick up in the photo

It's the same M seat belt option for X7s in International markets - eg in UK included on the M Sport Plus Package. In the USA, it's the same M seat belt on X3/4 ///M, X5/6 ///M.

Ehhhh... fuck it. May regret it, but I just placed a deposit for one of these. Maybe my decade long next-car research and 3 year long scrutiny of the X7 has finally come to an end. Not sure about it, but worst case, the deposit's refundable.

Interesting special edition. I'm all for the interior - anything with night blue, LOL.

Love BMW Individual Frozen Arctic Grey metallic matte finish, BUT would hate maintaining the frozen paint finish cause way I'm lazy but yeah definitely have to PPF + ceramic this puppy.

Only poop is... they should have made emblems in Shadowline.

The rest is plain simple and nothing new.

I would've expected special limited edition wheels at the least. Special badging, different grill, maybe blacked out headlights interior, totally white /smoked taillights
Door projectors with the badge ... show me something limited

X7 Dark Edition A.K.A:

A normal X7 with every option selected, BMW frozen paint and Shadowline trim.


What's so special about this again?

Yeah, I get it. There are definitely some special edition elements, namely the paint. These 22" rims look to be the blacked-out versions of the other 22" X7 rims--the 22" black wheels all of us have been wanting to get, but not previously available. But could be more "special", or limited edition.

I've never owned a matte paint car before, but do like the look. Quick research seems to indicate that PPF and ceramic is still possible on matte. Would need to protect the special paint job, and yes, would require extra work.
