Has anyone measured 0-60 times with their m50i?

Wondering if anyone used a a draggy or otherwise captured what this beast will do 0-60mph? I know BMW understates performance and it sounds like the X3MC which is supposedly 4.0 secs is actually 3.3-3.5 seconds from what I have read so if BMW says the X7 m50i is 4.5 secs 0-60 I'm guessing it is 3.8-4.1. Just wondering if anyone actually measured it yet.

BMW states that the X7 50i does it in 5.2 seconds, but Car and Driver reported 4.6 seconds after testing.

I would be surprised if it's sub 4 seconds, but I am very curious as well about what the M50i does!

It still amazes me that such a huge vehicle is even capable of reaching 60 in the stated 4.5 seconds (and even more amazing if it's even quicker).

My former E60 M5 had an identical rating but I would assume that in real life, the X7 will be quicker than my former M5 because it's easier to handle. Getting the perfect acceleration on a RWD-vehicle with an SMG-transmission is probably more challenging than on an AWD-vehicle with a 'clean' automatic-transmission.

I test drove X7 M50i twice before ordering and it felt as fast as my 2011 X5M. Never properly measured, but I suspect it is in the low 4.1 - 4.3 seconds range. Motortrend claims my X5M would do 4.1

I'm REALLY hoping that the m50i performance is as understated as every other recent BMW seems to be. I really want to see a 3.9 secs 0-60! I'd be happy with a 4.1 though

I would not be surprised to see these in the 3s with just Racechip added. My M5 with Racechip was in the high 2s and I just added Racechip to X7 and it is very quick (much faster than I was expecting) and doesn’t feel much slower than my M5 stock. I would guess it is very close to 4 flat or high 3s. I bet it is now as fast or slightly faster than the X5 M50i and that is rated at 4.1.

I may have to pick up a draggy because now I am curious myself.

I think the discussion was regarding stock numbers. But even so, I’d guess low 4s with a basic tune. Physics is not on the side of the x7

Alpina should hopefully be in the high 3s 🔮✨

Ps please prove me wrong, would be awesome if you’re right!
