Quickly introducing myself to thread. IX M60 on order, started production today.
I originally ordered the i4 M50 but have grown leery of the size of the car. Went and test drove iX 50 and loved it, and took the 1 allocation spot the dealer had for M60.

2023 MY, expected delivery end of May

Same here! But now there is that other thread about motor differences that has me a little worried about possible issues down the road with the M60 motor vs the 50 magnetic motor. I hate choices. lol

You have a nice taste of colors there. Just wondering if having two cars of the exact same colors would look too consistent? IMO Storm Bay Metallic has a slight essence of Dravit Grey though, I assume. No?
I’m only going to keep one of the two. Waiting to decide which - having never driven the M60.
I drove the iX 50 and the i4 M50, and there is no question, the i4 felt like a M. It handled like a M, accelerated like a M, etc.
The iX didn’t have that feel - hoping it’s in the M60.
Side note - the iX I drove had regen set to High while the i4 had it set to Medium. It’s a world of a difference ratcheting down the regenerative breaking to medium.

So, if everything goes well, you'd bid for M60. How about if you're to suggest a drive to your friend? Would you suggest them Ms over iXs too?

Did you receive your M60?
If so, which rims did you get?
Also, what does the range show when fully charged?
I am intrigued that the 22 inch rims theoretically get more range than the 21 inch rims
The EPA clearly shows this in the iX 50
I am not sure if it is a typo, but the EPA confusingly indicates better fuel efficiency in the M60 22 inch rims...but less range (which makes no sense)

I only ordered the 22s because of the slight increase in range
It will be interesting to see real world performance
I can't believe the 22s would optimize range in the iX 50 and not the M60
