I ended up not ordering the 20 and waited for the 21s. I can now place an order and plan to shortly. Any insights, knowledge out there? Feedback on the changes?

There is a lot less dialog on this forum than i expected. When i bought my x5 years ago it was loaded with very helpful insights, highlights, etc. I hope this picks up with the 21s.

One specific question. I noticed on the order sheet you can get the black wheels 21inch for models other than the M. Anyone know why i can't get the black 21s with the M? I love the 22 inch wheels but just can't get over the fact that i can't get an all season. Time is already limited, i sure hate to add a fall and spring session of changing wheels.

Anyone know why they stopped the full Merino option? Disappointing.

Depending on your selection be it 40i or 50i M or lux.
Generally speaking the 2020 is more loaded than the 2021 and gives you more options to pick from that were removed In 2021 ordering guide.

As for the wheels. The M brakes are bigger in size and not all wheels support them. You have to dig for Wheels that can provide space for the calis to fit.
Or go After market.

I have the 2021 M50i and love it. I like they updated a few things, such as Sirius XM 360, Android Auto, etc., which are features I use tons. Although there are just a few things that cannot be ordered on the 2021, such as Off Road, Night Vision, Ambient Air (is there anything else), I think it is a nicer vehicle.

Think about getting the optional spare tire. Shredding a run-flat (RFT) on a weekend road trip can be catastrophic. With a spare, you can limp home. A spare also allows you to do DIY tire rotations if you have a square set-up.

They offer 21" non-RFT's. On the 40i, the headliner and roof pillar upholstery is white. Alcantera in black is a $1000 option.
