no need to wait all this time for brighter corona lights. Having said that, I would probably get the M5 instead.

from what i read the new x5m has (new kidney grills and LED lights)..

do not think that i can install them though, the dealership told me that you cannot update the 2012 x5m into a newer model.

is it possible though? how can i install the led coronas, if i opt to go with the x5m

Think they can be retrofitted.

Anyways got mine about 1mnth ago...swapped out the chrome grills that come default with BMW OEM black kidney grills . Changed out the default coronas for the LUV H8. they look good and bright.

Choice is finally up to you: if U have the patience to wait for 7mnths sure do. I dint: enjoying driving that truck now. LOl

I hope they can be retrofitted. BMW is known to sometime make things difficult by making some internal changes where the light goes.
The new halo lights are like these below. If possible(assuming no changes to where the light goes) you will have to change the entire headlight assembly unit. I believe they are $1500+ each x2 = $3000+. The LCI X5 headlights are also close to $1500.

The lights are cool and all but spending $3k on them? I suppose everyone's budget is different but that seems a bit excessive.

But there is one thing , when hit the start button the rpm starts on the 1 then goes a bit below? Is it becuz I didnt push the m button ?!

How long can I drive till I start pushing the m button

The dealership told me to drive it for 1000 to 2000 km then start with the launch control and hitting the m power button

Any advice??

Launch control yes: would not do it until u break it in..1200miles I think.

The manual has instructions for the break in period including: not to exceed 5000rpms or 105mph and to vary the speeds/rpm on highway driving. I asked here about the M button and the opinion was that it was okay as long as the other recomendations were followed.
