I had the black headliner on my 2008 5er. It is awesome. Not too dark at all with all the glass in the cabin enclosure. I would have gotten it on my current 5er but it was not available at the time. I am getting it on my 2014 LCI 5er which I am picking up doing BMW Euro Delivery.
I would not recommend getting a 2013 X3 at this late in the game. I paid $300 over dealer invoice on my 2014 X3 which will be complete on April 4. The new iDrive and Nav is worth the modest difference. Plus the packages are more cost effective and the standard 40/20/40 rear seats are a plus. The additional value with a year later model year adds to the value whenever you sell the car.
