Unless you are getting a KILLER DEAL, hold out for the color you like. You'll have this car for years and each time you see a Grey X3 you will be pissed. Trust me.
I am fortunate to have unique press cars delivered weekly, but I own:
'13 Audi Q5 2.0T Quattro 8AT
'86 Porsche 911 Turbo 4MT
Gone, but never forgotten... my E70 X5 35d, E90 335i, E46 330i, E36 328i, E70 X5 3.0si, E53 X5 3.0i.
