The MY23 guide is attached in several threads.

Main difference is most option packages are all combined into the ultimate pkg (7k). You can't pick and choose them separately anymore. So, you basically have to choose from a basic or loaded model.

I originally ordered a 22, but since I ordered in May of 2022, it was going to change. As noted, ultimate package covers pretty much everything. Base is lightly higher in the US. It did not change my price much since I loaded my 2022(since that is all you can build online), so the 23 was mostly the same except I was forced into radiant heating, not generally necessary in Florida. Maybe I will use it in our 2 days of winter.

I'm still waiting for my 2022 XDrive 50 to get the airbag update before it's shipped to my dealer, but while I wait- I was curious. How does the ultimate package for 2023 compare with the sum of those options for a 2022.

If my math is right,
2022 all options in ultimate package, $9,400
2023 ultimate package $7,700

a SAVINGS of $1700

that just about equals the base price increase (~ $900) and the increased price of one of the all leather seating packages ($1,000).

So really, a heavily optioned 2023 is about the same price as a similarly equipped 2022. No Bowers and Wilkins option on the 2023 M50 however

That is kind of how it played out for me, I had a heavily optioned 2022, and the 2023 with the ultimate package was a relatively slight price difference. X60 base jumps a lot, but there little to add to if my brain is working right.

I think you need to add in the cost of multi-functional seats at $1600, which was part of the premium package.

That being said, the 2023 does come with Parking Assistant Professional (instead of Plus) Package. And I do see features like Active Cruise Control and Traffic Jam Assistant which weren’t mentioned in the 2022.

I had assumed ACC would at least come with the 2022 Drive Assistant Professional Package, but apparently that’s not the case? It’s not mentioned explicitly and there’s this comment in a Reddit thread quoting a BMW Genius: https://www.reddit.com/r/BMWiX/comments/vhmvxg/_/ifvih2y

I think I figured it out today when driving in heavy slow city traffic with cruise control on….. when the car is stationary for more than 20 seconds (traffic lights, stationary traffic for some time…..) have to gently press on the accelerator to get the car going and then the “stop & go” kicks in. When car comes to a halt for less than 20 seconds, I don’t need to press the accelerator and it moves off by itself. The ding reminder happens when I didn’t press the accelerator when the vehicle in front moved off!
This is not definitive, just todays experience.

That sounds about right. My current Range Rover (ICE) has same functionality.

I have the same on my about to be replaced car. If there is a full stop of more than maybe 2 seconds, I have to use the pedal to get started again. I think this to be relatively common behavior for stop and go.

Yes. I have it with the driver assistance package. Although I don't fully understand when stop and go is enabled vs when I have to hit the accelerator to restart, even after 1200 miles.
If I correctly understood the principle of operation on my ix, then when a car is stuck in a traffic jam, it will start moving only if I literally look at the road.

Same operation in iD7 - at the top of the instrument cluster there is a camera that monitors your face to determine if you are alert (looking forward - you need to be sure the steering wheel is not obstructing it). If it determines you are not, the automatic features disengage at a stop. Part of the Driver Assistance Packages that also include Emergency Stop features, automatic and manual (a long pull on the emergency brake). It will initiate emergency stop procedures automatically if you don't ultimately respond to all of the alerts while driving if you have it engaged (chimes, lights) with hands-off the wheel - it will assume you're unresponsive and in some cases even pull the car over to the side of the road and place an emergency call.



Been around for awhile:
