m-sport vs non m-sport

Do you believe the m-sport is worth the extra $. Besides the front bumper, small exterior color differences and steering wheels, what else is different? I'm having a hard time picking between m-sport and non, I feel like in some videos the non m-sport with silver trim looks better than the m-sport, and some videos I like the front bumper of the m-port.

As of now i'm leaning towards the non m-sport with 22" wheels, which is also something to think about as they do not seem to have all season tires. I feel like the non m-sport fits the giganticness of the x7. Would love to see both in person. What are your thought between the two? Decisions Decisions

Go with your gut! Most of us are ordering site unseen, including myself. If you don't love it when it comes in, then you don't buy it. I chose to go with the MSport. Didn't really like it at first in the press release photos, but after seeing the first real life pics I totally flipped and wanted that thing. I also love a lot more of the sporty looking features like the black alcantara head liner, steering wheel, M badging, shadow line trim, bumpers, brakes, wheels, etc.... If there was a X7M, I'd want it. Good luck with your decision. Beautiful vehicle, either way in my opinion. Wish I could have my damn car now!

For me, it's the front nose styling of the M-sport, and the subdued non-chrome M-sport trim, that makes the M-sport so much more aesthetically pleasing.

Now... is it worth all that $$$ for what ends up really being mostly an aesthetic difference? That's a lot of money for what is mostly looks. Up to you.

The M Sport package is also the only way to get the M Sport exhaust.

It is probably an error on the German build your own website.The BMW Canada X7 build your own website also has an error.It shows the aluminum running boards being available on the M Sports package,which is wrong.There is no way to get the aluminum running boards on the M Sports package.The M Sports package also comes standard on the X7 50i in Canada.

Thanks for helping me out with my decision!
I think I got it, m-sport with standard m-sport wheels bc needing all seasons.
Now the question if the premium package is worth the 3k? I really love/need shades and you canít add it as an option, itís part of the premium. The premium package also has HK and heads-up display. Also wonder if premium package will matter on resale?

This is my order. I did feel the premium package is over priced for what it is but really want most of the features that you can't get individually. I'm def goin to try negotiating as much as I can when its time to talk turkey at delivery. I always felt when spending this much on a car, ordering to your liking is a must. I don't want to regret after I'm driving it home and making payments. That being said, I really wanted the 50i but can not convince myself to hit/exceed the 6 figure mark for the extra power. And still haven't included CT sales tax @7.75%. Hows everyone else ordering??

For Canadians, the Premium package is over-priced for sure. For the 50i, this is the premium package on the builder with options price breakdown:

Premium Package $ 7,500 Total

Extended Merino Leather $ 2,500
Sky Lounge Panoramic Glass Sunroof $ 1,000
Ambient Air Package $ 400
Ventilated Seats, Front $ 500
Glass Application 'CraftedClarity' for Interior Elements $ 850
Massage Function for Driver and Passenger $ 750
Walknappa Leather Dashboard $ 1,200

These options addup to $7200 so they charge $300 extra for it being a package??
