From a dealer in Ohio. I just attended the X3 event so I hope I can use the gift card when I get it for an iPad. Not really interested in accessories.

Email says the gift card is towards X3 accessories.

I'll take it off your hands if you don't want it. What did you think of the X3?

Liked it a lot. The steering feels overboosted at low speeds just like the 5 series we drove but it is just different, I don't think it is better or worse. Got to try out the sport seats and loved them, in fact I added the Sport Activity Package to our order. Also got to see the smaller non-nav screen display. It is the same resolution as the large screen so I am no longer worried we didn't opt for nav. The back seat area is huge, plently of leg room. Now just waiting for it to arrive in April.

If you read the text from the email I posted, it mentions about an iPad. I guess I need to call the dealer or BMW.
