Can the experts here chime in order date for 2020 m550 ? 530hp will be insane for this model. Will go all out with this custom order..... thanks !

A dealer in NY I spoke to said July but he caveated he didn't think the new V8 would be in the 550 since it would take it too close to the m5. We shall see soon.

I recently asked this IRT the M5 and apparently for previous years it wasn't until sometime in June.

FWIW, this thread which has a lot of posts by someone that is either a BMW employee or knows one (or more) says that not only will the M550i get the "new" V8 but that it will also have the new gauge cluster. Personally I'm hoping iDrive 7 comes with the gauge cluster as well, since I'm hoping to keep the M5 for a while and I'd love something where they upgrade the iDrive over time (mostly just for bug fixes, though new features would be great as well).

That would be great as I am ready to order in the summer.

I'm also hoping for more 19 inch wheel options on the 550. Feel like the 3 series has a ton. I love the 20's but for ride quality and NY road hazards not ideal.

I'm hoping for more color choices. I love the 5 series but the color choice is the blandest I've ever seen on a nice car. I'll probably end up going for an individual color so I can get something brighter.

And yeah, I'll probably get the M5 with 19"s as well (assuming I get an M5 and don't just go for the M550)

Sounds great but what will BMW do for the LCI coming Spring/Summer 2020? I'm thinking the MY20 5 series may have some of what you describe, but it likely won't have all of it. They'll reserve some tech bits for the LCI.

Prove me wrong, I'm ready for a new car this August.

I think by instrument panel they mean the new all digital cluster the 2019 m550i received without the rings and slightly different font and style - Iím taking it that this will now be standard for 2020.

As far as the motor goes, it doesnít make sense to change the motor before the LCI which is for the 2021 model, but this guys seems to be right so who knows. If the new motor is not out for 2020 then that year model will be a bit underwhelming since the 2021 will get the LCI design, idrive 7 and the new motor.
