BMW USA X2 online configuration, BMW please add M Sport design option

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
https://www.bmwusa.com/byo.html#!/bu...orlds/dj4rb4to

Many of us already dislike the tackiness of black and grey side/front/back molding/skirt with only 2 designs of standard and M Sport X for US market. BMW, please add M Sport design with the same body-colored molding/skirt you already have in other markets to the US market. One of important reasons we want it is the taste and style.

I requested BMW USA to add this at

https://www.bmwusa.com/Secured/Conte...tactUsWeb.aspx

I encourage everybody who likes the M Sport Design does the same, sending BMW the request

I was on the road last week here in NJ and was driving next to the X2 with camouflage all over the front bumper. The BMW emblems were all covered but the rear wasn't camouflaged. It looks better in person for sure.

lol 51K for an x2. Looks like they are planning to charge more for the x3/4 in the future if these are the x2 prices.

and the mouth now has lipstick

I've noticed that the average base bmw when equipped decently gets to somewhere in the 50k range when lots of options are added in


BMW X1, X2, 2 Series , 3 Series , 4 Series all are in the mid 50K range with moderate amounts of options or M sport packages.

Their base prices start off in the 30s but quickly jump upward. It's hard to find any of these on a lot at a dealer in the Dallas Fort Worth area without a $51-56k pricetag.

It's basically like , hey we have lots of types of vehicles .. and they all sell for around the same price.

Indeed as mentioned above , this means the X3 and especially the x4 are moving upmarket.

An M5 or X5M /X6M is 100K now so I expect the upcoming X3M/X4M to be in the 70k range

What the hell is that badge on the C pillar?

I was thinking about picking one of these up for my mom, but that badge is tacky/trashy as hell. Almost as bad as the huge backlit Mercedes emblems

BMW has done it before. It's a throwback to the CSL coupe and racecar from the 70's, which were pretty iconic cars for BMW.

Canít wait to see it in person, but like the photos. Dig the roundel on C pillar. Throwback to some of the most iconic BMWs ever made. Fresh looking, cool design.

I was wondering the same thing. I get lineage and whatnot but it looked tacky then, and it looks tacky now.

How can you call it fun, when you have never driven it?

Might look fun, but looks are deceiving.

Ah the irony, since presumably you haven't driven it either and would have no idea yourself whether looks are deceiving.

Yeah, I get that, I just think this is the wrong car for it. An X2 couldn't be much further from a CSL.

If this was on an M2, I think the nod would be appropriate and tasteful. On an SUV it just looks like branding.

To each their own though.

I only saw the basic and m sport x model on the builder.

Wasn't there supposed to be just an m sport mid range model? I recall it looking better than the m sport x front fascia.
