I have a deposit on a RIVIAN but I like the size of the iX Drive 50. Not crazy about the Grill. The Car appears to be about $10k-$15k more than the RIVIAN with a few Options added. I presume a price of mid 80’s will be over $90-95k with Options added. Curious what other people think of the front of the Car.

Welcome to the forum @St Bernard! Do you have a reservation for the Rivian SUV or pickup? Personally I don't mind the grille on the iX, but I see why others might not like it. I think it suits an SUV better than a sedan like the M3/M4 for example.

Is there anything that stands out to you with the iX over the R1S? Or vice versa?

Yeah that's something a lot of people will have to get used to. Do you think you'll be able to get past the grille?
