I plan to buy a used 2005 X3 in the next few months. I live in Toronto but will be buying one in the US. I'm trying to find information on what options and colors were available. I looked for a sales brochure on eBay, but no luck. Are there other places to get this kind of detailed information? Thanks in advance.

You may be able to research the 2005 model on Edmunds.com

They have good info, but I was hoping to find something that may show the colors. I'm also not sure they have the option numbers on older cars.

I have brochures for the 2004 and 2006 models, but not the 2005.

The paint colors are the same for those two years, so I would assume they were also the same for 2005.

The upholstery colors are also the same in the two brochures, so must've been the same in 2005.

The ony difference that I see is that in 2004 a base Slate Gray interior trim is listed, whereas in 2006 wood trim or aluminum finish is standard/no cost.

The paint colors listed are:
Alpine White (300)
Jet Black (668)
Titanium Silver metallic (354)
Silver Gray metallic (A08)
Black Sapphire metallic (475)
Flamenco Red metallic (470)
Highland Green metallic (A11)
Blue Water metallic (896)
Mystic Blue metallic (A07)

The interior colors listed are:
Sensatec (vinyl) interiors in Sand Beige and Black
Montana leather interiors in Sand Beige, Gray, Terracotta and Black

I realize you probably also want to look at the color chips -- this will at least give you the names of the colors.

...

This is great information - thanks! I've found some 2006 brochures online and this info tells me I can most likely use them. Thanks again.

Here is the 2004 option/code guide: http://www.bmwmotorsports.org/pdf/2004%20X3%20Pricing.pdf

I can't find my '05 brochure right now, but '04 and '05 did not have major option equipment changes. In 2005, I believe Slate Gray plastic was replaced by Sycamore Wood trim as standard, with Birch and Aluminum trim as No Cost. The centre armrest became standard on the 2.5i and as a result, the price of the premium package fell by $100 US. The panaroma moonroof likely became standard on the 3.0i, but the Automatic transmission remained a $1275 option. Bluetooth and mp3 capability were added for '05, with the former being an option.

I too am looking for an '05 X3.
I bought 2 (1 by accident) SALES BROCHURES not owners manuals on ebay for $20 each. Price includes shipping. Let me know if you want to buy one, or just ask any question that might be answered in it and I will let you know.:)

Thanks jo-e90. I think I have all the information now without the printed brochure. With my lease ending in April, it's time to get serious about looking.
