Can you check if it is really true that there is no ambient lighting in the iX?
Just find it odd from all the photos so far.

Lol private viewing for that monstrosity? Beauty is really in the eyes of the beholder when it comes to their designs lately.
BMW needs to wake up.

Only thing I really don't like are the lower side grilles.

They could have done better than the heavy looking Wrangler Rubicon wheels.

Why is there a private viewing of a car that has been fully revealed?

Norway is light years ahead of the world

BMW needs to bring a midsize suv or crossover to market

It's absolutely clear they're holding back from releasing anything in that segment other than the seriously half baked iX3

I thought having a dedicated iX forum would reduce this type of posts.

I guess most users who want to participate in this forum or want to buy an iX are OK with its look.
I can understand criticism of the car on options available or when problems are discovered after the car is released, but is it really necessary to post negative views about the looks here among potential future iX owners when you obviously have no interest in this car?

I think it's ok to post your view about this car's look in the General BMW forum, but it's not very nice to post it here.
It's like giving a thumbs down when you meet an iX driver in the future, or tell him "Hey Bro, the car you bought is so ugly!" - would you do that in real life?

Is a plague within the bimmerpost forms. These people who's only purpose is to bitch and complain about everything BMW does now and in every forum.

One would think if they had no interest they would just move along to something they are interested in as that is what enthusiast do, look for and participate in threads on things they are enthusiastic about. These guys just want to spread their pathetic misery to others as they have no life to speak of. They are just Trolls masquerading as enthusiasts.

Being on the front page is not an invitation to come in and interfere with other members enthusiasm on a regular basis.

I can't speak for the mods, but so long as a particular forum comment is generally on topic (in this case referring to the iX or iX preview) then I would say it's in the right place.

Nowhere in his post did the OP state this thread was only for positive opinions of the iX.

To be intolerant of other posters/commenters just because their opinion differs from yours has made you the very "Troll" you're criticizing.

You can just as easily follow your own directive and move past the negative comments but instead you've made yourself the proverbial "pot calling the kettle black".

Same here - both iX and i4 are on my "to be explored" list. I think iX will be a segment leader once launched.

I went to UDE today and saw it in person.

It looks like a futuristic X5 in person, it's really pretty cool, especially from the rear.

The inside is the biggest change and in my opinion, a welcome one. The floating center console, wood grain, crystal idrive knob and of course the one screen dash design are beautifully done. I couldn't sit in it but could tell from the outside that the dash was better integrated than anything Tesla has recently done.

I wasn't a fan of the wheels, a bit Jeepish for such a futuristic car. The grille is a non-issue, it's pretty nicely done if you look closely. Almost looks like glass.

I'm not sure if I'd be in the market for one in the future, but if this is the directions or all BMW models going forward, I think it's great.

Happens all the time when a post about the G80/G82 makes it to the front page as well. Just all a part of Bimmerpost.
