Looks Good! Front end looks great, can't wait to see the performance parts they make and I like the new infotainment!

Love the LCI update!

It is the first G series that I actually like, this and the x3 LCI both look superb.

Glad to see they've added more stitching on the seats and it looks like the leather is of a higher quality. The seats look fantastic.

I like the front but lament the loss of the notch in the headlights. The rear looks terrible IMO.

Seats have a different stitching pattern in the video than in the US Configuration website. Wonder if those are EU seats, and US will be different?

Not bad. It's almost exactly how I would envision it to be ha. Indifferent on the new dash/infotainment combination but it works

I'm willing to bet those are Canada and European seats only. The pre-LCI versions in those countries had the Merino leather with that stitching. I wish America would get that too, that was probably the biggest reason I didn't pull the trigger on that car, other than cooled seats too, just went full M3.

Vernasca just felt plastic-y to me. I know others felt the same too. The merino takes that interior to another level.

The front end looks better than the pre-LCI, in my eyes. I like the larger lower grille and flipped DRL. The pre-LCI DRL made it look sleepy. I'd prefer the notched headlights, but it's not a deal breaker to me.

Wish we had the amber rear turn signals in the US.

I like the front end better on the LCI but I miss the headlight notch.

As a pre-LCI owner, I like the new headlight design but not the rear bumper. I think the flat screen and shift knob integrates well with the newer IX model, to me it looks kinda odd with the current interior design language.

Looks so much more aggressive than the pre LCI. The front lower center air vent is wider, and the rear diffuser is taller with more aggressive fins. New angel lights are thicker and bolder (looks way more aggressive).

The new widescreen also gave the center console a more depth looking which is good.

Pre LCI's rear diffuser looks way too small and soft looking to me. Not aggressive at all.

That is Merino leather stitching, available in the USA via Individual special order.

Like the front end for sure the rear end not so much but it would look good with either a carbon diffuser or a different exhaust

Angel eyes were iconic and will be missed.

Huge car.

The current model was available with a carbon fiber roof as well in Canada. Not sure why you would want it on such a car. An that's clearly the upgraded leather.

Still can't believe they took the slits out of the headlights. Made it so much more aggressive before

Looks great all round.

New rear diffusers is maybe a bit big but works way better on the Tourings
