this happens every time as soon as the wheels lose their grip and go into a slip.It feels like something wrong with XDrive. BMW told me to wait one month for new software, but how it possible for a car that cost more than 100k usd

Get them to take the car in for repair immediately and this could be a safety issue. It will also allow you to begin documenting this issue in the event of the lemon law. We received all of our money back on my wife's car because we addressed the issue within the first few thousand miles. It took the company two years to resolve it and we got all of our money back and a free car to drive for two years.

SIAP. I really enjoyed this review especially when he mentions that the M5 Comp this year is a collectors item or hold its value.

Collectors item? Newer M cars holding value?

Is the ride that much harsher in the M5C over the M5? I suppose at the end of the day I need to test drive both before making a decision.

Take the M5C if possible for a few days. Drive around and then decide if you can live with it.
IMHO the drivetrain alone is worth it, the Competition is like on rails and feels smaller than the standard M5.
