I contacted BMW Genius about the online inconsistencies. This was their response.

Hi,

Thanks for contacting the BMW Genius Team. I have included the following information regarding the 2020 BMW X7:

1. Our records indicate the Panoramic Sky Lounge LED Roof is available within the Executive Package.
2. Our records indicate the Heated and Cooled Cupholders are available within the Executive Package.
3. Our records indicate the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System is an additional, standalone option.

Thank you for bringing the inconsistencies on our Build Your Own website to our attention. We have made our website team aware of your discovery. As the Build Your Own is a tool to help visualize potential options, we advise speaking with a Client Advisor at your local BMW center for customizing your vehicle.

Should you have specific questions regarding options and features, please respond to this e-mail with more information. I'd be happy to help.

FWIW, here's a 2020 40i on Autotrader, Tanzanite Blue II, that does show the heated and cooled cupholders, so presumably it would have the Executive Package not yet shown on the US configurator:

Great find!

And now we know for sure that the extended shadowline includes the trim between the rear-lights!

The configurator has been partially updated. The Executive Package is now listed for the 40i as expected. The pricing seems to be off somewhere, though. It's about $600 less overall than before, and what I price out from the ordering guide.

The B&W is still not listed as an option for the 40i, though.

Yeah, we've been hoping that the option not being listed for 2020 was an oversight, and that it'd still be available. Unfortunately, it looks like it is actually not possible.

It seems the one thing we haven't been able to conclusively verify yet, regarding the MY2020 BMWUSA configurator, is B&W audio on the 40i, which the ordering guide does show as possible, just like MY2019.

If anyone finds a 2020 X7 40i with B&W, would you post it please, to confirm availability?

I ordered a 2020 X7 40i with B&W and the Exec package.

OUTSTANDING! You guys really are the best here. Case closed--B&W (and Exec package) available 2020 40i.

Small issue, but I just noticed the cost of captain's chairs increased from $600 in 2019 to $850 in 2020. Not sure why.

Has anybody tried to get any 2020 model with the 3DS Display Key? Not on the ordering guide or configurator since 2019, wondering if anyone has asked for it anyway.

It's probably because you can get a better "deal" with just the 50i. I don't think they are discounting the m50i very much....

But why? The Display Key is useless - the app is so much more useful

Strangely enough, two and a half months after the MY2020 configurator came online, the B&W audio is still not listed as available on the 40i.

Now we're approaching the Dec 2019 model updates. International configurators have been up already, with the new options, but still not yet in USA. One interesting thing, the UK configurator still says that the 3DS Display Key option is available, which the US configurator removed for MY2020.

Yup, the same applies to the German configurator I 'visit' on a regular basis.

In fact, it doesn't even let me build a vehicle equivalent to my U.S. configuration WITHOUT including the display key - LOL!

And you still can't get the new M seats in a color other than black and even when you pick black, you can't have the full leather...

M50i: $121,180
40i: $100,180

To quote E.T., "Oooooouuuuuuuuuuuchhhhh".

So here's what the extra $21k would get me, none of which apparently available on 40i anymore:
- New M50i engine with buttload more power
- Cerium grey wheels (kinda look funny with Extended Shadowline Black accents)
- B&W audio system ($3400 option)
- Panoramic LED Sunroof
- Heated and Cooled Cupholders
- Laser headlights (still constrained for US market)

Note, of course, that there is no "M-sport 50i". The M50i **is** the M-sport version of the 50i, so you have to go all-out if you're looking for the M-sport in the 50i line.

That's a lot of extra cheddar, if I'm just wanting to stay with the LED sunroof, cooled cupholders, and B&W audio. I know it's silly, but the cooled cupholders were something I was really looking forward to, along with the other stuff.

Another note: Yes, definitely bugs in the configurator. As I said about, on the 40i, if I select "headliner alcantara in leather color", it turns my black interior all white. On the M50i, selecting the same thing keeps the all-black interior, but turns the headliner all white, lol.
Keep in mind that $15K of that is the 50i engine. For the vast majority of drivers, the 40i is plenty. Id get it similarly equipped with the 40i and it is much more reasonable. After discounts it would prob be mid to high $70s.

Yeah, I just noticed that yesterday, too. What's up with that? The new M seats require "extended Merino", and do not allow "full Merino". I don't see any reason why it shouldn't. Should have no effect on the lower door and such. Maybe just another configurator quirk/glitch?

Cool, yes, thanks, the US configurator has been updated to include that. It's just the B&W audio still missing from the configurator, even though we did find one 2020 X7 40i online that had it.
