I'm not a fan of the LED's; have them on the X5M. The Xenons on the 650 are much, much better on very dark country roads, especially on cloudy moonless nights. I would pay extra for the Xenons's if the LED's were stock.

Is HUD included in your spec? Most important option IMO

Not sure what you want to spend, but the Comp Pack is worth it if you value better handling (and sound) and not just outrageous straight line speed/power. The B&O sound is terrific too. Really like the LEDs, but the full capability is decoded in Canada. Nice and bright though

Garage List
I've switched my thinking.. now taken rather a nice liking to the M6 GC, just need to drive it. The finance deal and the discounts at the moment make this car actually a fraction cheaper to buy than the M5 and you get a lot of metal.

Will be having a loan of the X and then will take an extended drive on the GC then make my choice.

Appreciate all the feedback.. Gotta say loving the rear defuser in carbon tho on the M's
