Thank you. Not trying to pick nits, but to my knowledge there was no sport suspension offered for US model X3's in 2011. Dynamic dampers were an option, and many feel it improves the handling, but...

I posted previously, but we replaced the GY 245/45-19 LS2s at 25,000 miles with the Michelin Primacy MXM4 ZP (run flat). The run flats in that size are H speed rated and have an XL 102 load rating. ...

Yes, I put 4 Drive Guard 225/45-18 tires on our 2013 335i xDrive last October and have driven about 11,000 miles on them. Very nice tires, no issues.

Is there any way you can get the Track Package and different 18" wheels than the 398 gray ones; e.g., some kind of Priority I order for 397 or 400m wheels?

I believe that was added with LCI.

I've found some dealer photos who have the color in their inventory, and that helps, but not as good as seeing it in person.

Platinum Silver Metallic

Has anyone seen Platinum Silver Metallic in person? If yes:
What was your impression?
Is it similar to Space Gray?

Thanks

Interestingly, if I am reading correctly, you also get fogs if you get the Track Package without M-Sport.
