Looking for opinions on Order

My comment about white notwithstanding, the X3 would replace my 2011 328i wagon, which is alpine white with chestnut leather and I would prefer to change up the color so am thinking about red; Alpine White is still in the running but current 2nd place. Of course, color is a very individual thing....YMMV.

The question on the trim is easy: "Shadowline" is BMWspeak for black, but note that the variant on the US-market X3 is the fancy high-gloss shadowline. I like it but it tends to show fingerprints, etc. The alternative on an M sport is satin aluminum, i.e., silver color. Not chrome but satin silver.
Couldn't agree more! AW in m sport with chestnut and shadow line is the bomb !
