Hi all,

I recently had my 16' X5 M serviced (about 9,000 miles) and the dealer provided a 16' 750 loaner (non-M Sport). I was very impressed and the kids really enjoyed it (more room in the back and the gadgets). So, I'm now thinking of trading in the X5 M for a new 750 with M Sport. I take long trips for work and believe the 750 is a smoother and more comfortable ride. I would miss the stiffness of the X5 M so wanted to ask if anyone compared a non-M Sport 750 to one with M Sport (esp. with the 20" inch. wheels). Please let me know as this is my primary concern. I know I'll be giving up some of the stiffness of the X5 M and am ok with that, as long as it's not completely different. The dealer is making the economics of the deal work and my monthly will actually be at least $200-$300 lower than the X5 M ($0 down). This is for a $109,600 MSRP car (M Sport, Driver Assistance Plus, Plus II, Executive, and other options) and is black with cognac interior.

Any advice, thoughts, recommendations are welcome.

Thanks.

I have the M Sport and I did drive a non Msport. Ride is exactly the same. I believe the package is purely aesthetics? The beauty of the 750 is the difference between sport mode and comfort mode. It really stiffens the suspension and makes the car a blast to drive. I didn't drive a car with 20s but I did with 21s. Ride was not great with the 21s IMO.

The 7 excels on long stretches. Mine was an MSport. I only drove an X5 as a loaner...I liked it and at the time wanted my wife to like it more than her GX470. She didn't. In my opinion the 7 would offer a much more comfortable and enjoyable ride.

Was on your F02? I had a G12 750i xDrive loaner for a couple days and could not feel any difference with the chassis in Comfort or Sport. On the F01/F02, the difference is noticeable, but the G12 has air suspension and both modes were way too soft compared to my F01.

So when I was shopping I had a same situation I test drove x5m, 750 and 750 M Sport with 20 inch rims and I went with 750 M Sport which is more comfortable than this X5 m and stiff enough when you put it in sport mode.

Go for 750 M Sport with 20s would be nice to have Autobahn package that's what I have.

Thank you GS 1905. You have a good looking car! So did you compare the M Sport with and without the Autobahn Package? It's seems it's more for steering and road preview. Does it feel tighter as well? Thanks again.

One follow-up question on the 20" wheel option. Does that come with the M like brake calipers? Also, any idea if I would be able to put 19" winter wheel package? Thanks.

Love my G12 M sport. Best 7er I've owned of the 5 in the past 15 years. Also got an X5 m sport for the misses when we turned in our GL550. She loves her new X5.

Both cars are Xdrive.

I'd wait for the 17 MY. I believe you get apple car play and remote parking.
