Any new info/pics of 2008 sport activity package?

I've decided to go for the X3 for practicle reasons but I need more information about the new for 2008 sport activity package for the X3. Are the running boards body colored? Can you still get the 19" wheel upgrade? Is it more of an off-road package vs. sport package which is more on-road performance oriented? Thanks for your help.

I don't think that's true. You do get a sport steering wheel but not the sport seats, sport suspension or the body kit. To me it looks like they combined stadalone options like 18" wheels (was $500 for 2007) and privacy glass (was $350) and added the running boards, shadowline trim and sport steering wheel, giving it a $1400 price tag. That seems like a fair price.

I would definitely get this package since I feel the stock 17" wheels are a bit small and 18" or 19" wheels make the vehicle look much nicer. The privacy glass on 2007 models was a light tint, unlike most SUV privacy glasses which are very dark. I wish it was darker. I would like to see what the running boards and the sport steering wheel look like.
