At least the Germans still bothered to share some of the specs in their brochure. Though that 1,800+kg weight of the RWD model is nothing good to highlight, I know, I know...
I think my G03 X3 M40D weights 1850kg

The lack of Engine/Suspension/Steering individual buttons is a major issue for me. I do not look at iDrive while in motion, I turn it off. So having individual buttons for each setting and being able to switch each item with a quick button push is crucial. DSC and Drivelogic are available as individual buttons which is good though.

There's quite a few colours to choose from, but none floating my boat. Portimao Blue seems to be the default colour for 50% of vanilla 3 series here in the UK, so doesn't strike me as an M Colour.

I always liked Silverstone blue, but alas, that's not offered. Frozen white perhaps?

Do you have any idea? The M3/4 German pdf clealy states that you get a leather upper dash when ordering the full merino upholstery, but I was unable to find a similar guide for the M5.

Thanks in advance and sorry for the threadjack.

I ordered SensaTec seats. I LOVE them.

German PDF: M5.pdf
Looks like upper dash depends upon involved leather & seat options. Also looks like leather upper dash is separate equipment 4M5. [US M550i order guide offers 4M5 as $700 option to delete 4AW SensaTec.] Hope you can translate with this link:
https://webcache.googleusercontent.c...&ct=clnk&gl=us

Anyone check the ETK for part info?

This is great info! The order guide says that you have to order individual leather (like Tartufo) to get a leather dash.

Thank you again

My take is upper dash & door panels will also be Nappa with:
X3A9 Silverstone Full Merino Leather
X3D8 Aragon Brown Full Merino Leather
X3JA Black Full Merino Leather with Midrand Beige Alcantara Cloth
X3SW Black Full Merino Leather

P. 28
X3 Translation:
Scope in Merino leather:
Front and rear seats including headrests, backrest wall of the front seats, inserts in door panels, armrests and door pull handle, center console including armrest, lower part of the instrument panel
Scope of black nappa leather: Upper part of the dashboard, door panels
ZB Translation:
Scope in BMW Individual Merino leather in upholstery color:
Front and rear seats including headrests, backrest paneling of the front seats, door mirrors, center console included of the side panels and armrests, lower part of the instrument panel
Scope of leather soft nappa black:
Upper part of the instrument panel, door panels
Seam processing:
Color-contrasting piping and seams on the seats, contrasting seams on the center console and the door panels and the instrument panel, quilted parts of the seat cover in a braided look, hand-braided piping on the seats

I re-read the PDF and you are correct. X3 might be enough to get a leather upper dash.

I really like the arctic race blue on the 4 series / 440i and also the barcelona blue on the 8 series.

Any change we will see these?

How do Individual paints work, would you be able to spec these colours?
