I just got home from picking up my new X3

Alpine white w Terracota looks awsome. Bluetooth works fine although voice recognition would be nice and I'm still figuring out how to load all of the speed dials. Overall the vehicle is about as cute as a SAV/SUV could be. Plenty of power and it handles well. It's a bumpy ride though. Bumpier than my M3, I think. The steering wheel is nice and thick and the step-tronic is great. I generally don't like SUVs but this one is an acception. Did I mention how cute it is?

I'll take pics and post them today. It's nice and sunny so my Alpine White baby will be glistening.

Let' see the pics?

Anybody have comments on white as a color?
Maintenance, fading, etc?

IMHO, that's a great color combo ... and my M3 has a much stiffer suspension than my X3.

Nope. We test drove an '04 with sport package and could not see using the car for our local city commute, so we opted for a non-sport model.

I haven't had a chance to even take pics. Sorry about taking so long. If I get a chance to clean it up on Saturday, I will take pics and post them asap. Everyone just loves my X3 though. It serves its purpose very well and I think it was a good decision to get it.
