I cannot help the OP either, but I the OP is correct; it is Nevada leather -- the only leather available for MY2014 US-market X3s.

Interesting! No mention in the German price list that is out, but hopefully the USA will get some choices, too.

Or, to put it another way, BMW continues to increase the power output of the engines, from the 300 hp of the 35i to the 355 hp of the M40i. Just like they increased the output of the four cylinder...

I'm going to have to agree and disagree with ejw2011. Yes, changing the tire size from OE will change the speedometer. In this case, though, the change is tiny. So I think a 235/55R-17 should work...

Welcome!

With a 10 year old BMW, I would think that there is more to go wrong with a 5 series than with a 3er. And don't expect any BMW to have that legendary Toyota reliability. Come to think of...

That is a BBS CH wheel. A relatively expensive German-made wheel. A great choice for a 3 series.

Welcome to Bimmerfest! You've posted in the forum for the 2011-on X3; look again at the choices and perhaps somebody in the E83 X3 forum can assist.

While offset is the biggest hurdle to interchangeability, there are others. Center bore varied between the 5/7 series and the 3 series in the 90s, if memory serves. While the 5x120 bolt pattern has...

Sensatec (vinyl leatherette) is std on the 530i and leather is std on the 540i. The option packages vary between the two, but leather (value $1,450) and the engine appear to be it. Given that one has...

I never have the car loaded up to GVWR, so was OK with the 98 load index and fitted Michelin PS A/S3. Then was ready for another set and the tire shop talked me into bumping up to a 255/45R-19 size...

I had it done to my new 2017 M3 six months ago. Expensive ($1300) and like the slipperiest coat of wax you've ever seen. It seems to be holding up very well. 7 year warranty but subject to caveats...

Based on the appearance that is a late-model (last few years) sport steering wheel. I suspect you got the last few digits of the BMW part number (....074437) in the upper left of the close-up photo.

No. F15 wheels use the 5x120mm pattern that BMW has used for years. I suspect that all BMWs will transition to the new 5x112 over the next few years.
