exterior 35i versus 50i

hi

what are the physical and visual differences between the 35i and 50i?
is there a way to tell the two apart besides the badging?
like a different fascia, grill, skirt, etc?

thanks
Jack

There are only a few external differences

Exhaust tips - The 35i has round tips while the 50i has the rectangular tips.
Kidney Grills - The 35i has black kidney grills with silver trim around the parameter while the 50i has completely silver kidneys.
Wheels - Different wheels that are exclusive to each model ... 3 different designs/sizes for each. 2 19" options and one 20" option.
Badging - obviously

That's all I can think of for now ...

Me too! It's actually coming this year (Spring time / April-ish) as a 2011 model! I was pretty much set on the 35i as a daily driver when it has the N54 ... now with the N55 gas mileage should be ~7% better (at least 1 mpg).

i'm still struggling with the options. it seems that no one really has any opinions. maybe because the x6 isn't that popular.
i commute 52miles per day so gas mileage is somewhat important and i'm currently getting 17 in my vehicle so 15-16 isn't too far off.
