I had beige mats and switched to black as the beige ones showed scuff marks and my OCD couldn't handle it. I bought the BMW ones during one of the 25% off accessories sales.

The SA said the used car manager overbid the X3 as the best they'd sell it for was 36.5. I ended up going with a new Alpine White 2013 diesel with everything except sport activity. I could have...

Trade Fineline Wade Wood Trim for Silver?

I am selling the aluminum trim on Bimmerpost. I would swap but I already replaced with wood. Message me if interested- open to reasonable offers as I don't need it.
