X3 F25 3.0d M Sport - Paddle shifts in UK?

Hi all

Just ordered a 3.0d M sport in the UK. From the documentation I have seen, and pictures, I cannot see any 'flappy paddles' on the steering wheel.

Surely this cannot be true? Could anyone confirm it?

Thanks

Not sure about the UK options. We don't even get the 3.0d or the M Sport Package here so it's hard to say what comes with what. In the US, the flappy paddles are only available on the 35i with Sport Package.

So does the M Sport give the 28i paddle shifters? Because as it stands now, the 28i can't get them.

Hi All,

Down here in Australia we can order the 3.0D and we can also order the MSport Kits.
Only thing is no flappy paddles for any models coming to Australia.
Even though in all the brochures it has them pictured, the is a little *at the bottom saying paddle shifters no available in Australia

Regards
Roderic

Still order a 3.0D with MSport....ETA Jun.

M Sport for 28i and 35i Available Now in USA

I just ordered a 35i with the M Sport Package last Friday here in Oregon. The option code is ZMP for either the 28i or the 35i. Both have a retail price of $3000 and both require the $3450 ZPP Premium Package to be ordered as well. The ZAP Sport Activity Package cannot be ordered with either as they duplicate certain features.

The 35i M Sport feature list includes the following:

2A8 19" M light alloy wheels on Doublespoke 369M wheels with 245/45 19s tires
2TB Sport automatic transmission with shift paddles
2VG Performance Control
3MC High gloss (black, I believe) roof rails
481 Sport seats
715 Aerodynamic kit M (body color)
760 Shadowline exterior trim (body color instead of black)
775 Antracite headliner
7XA M Sports steering wheel with paddle shifters

The 28i M Sport feature list includes:

2MS 18" M light alloy wheels on Star-spoke style 368 M wheels with 245/50 18s tires
2VG Performance Control
3MC high gloss roof rails
481 Sport seats
710 M steering wheel
715 Aerodyanmic kit (body color)
760 Shadowline exterior trim (body color instead of black)
775 Antracite headliner


The M Sport Package adds the Carbon Black Metallic paint option as well.

Very interesting about the 369 M rims being fixed 245/45 R19 for front and rear, as bmw.de has the M Sport package rims as option 2NE which is mixed tires- front 245/45 R 19 and rear 275/40 R19.

From bmw.de:
"M Leichtmetallräder Doppelspeiche 369 M, 19" mit Mischbereifung (S02NE)
M Leichtmetallräder Doppelspeiche 369 M, 19" mit Mischbereifung und Notlaufeigenschaften, Größe vorn 8,5 J x 19 Zoll, Bereifung 245/45 R 19, Größe hinten 9,5 J x 19 Zoll, Bereifung 275/40 R 19"

I'm going to request this option 2NE instead of 2A8.

Also, on the build sheet for SOP 4/2011, 2B7 (which is wheel style 309, available with ZAP) adds 840 (Increased top speed limiter). Would think that the ZMP would also add 840?

I have attached the X3 xDrive35i US SOP 4/11 Build Sheet.

What would happen with ZDH (Dynamic Handling Package) being added to ZMP?

Finally, the US owners manual lists on page 208 list 3 different 19 inch tire sizes for the X3 35i such as: 1) F:245/40 R 19 98W/ R:275/40 R 19 101; 2) F:245/40 R 102V/ R:275/40 R 19 105V; 3) F and R: 245/45 R 19 102 V

And a 20 inch rim F:245/40 R 20 99Y/ R: 275/35 R20 102Y which might be BMW Accessory BMW M Double Spoke 310, which is only available after market as BMW.ca, BMW.co.uk or BMW.de don't have this as a build to order option (also not in the english 2011 X3 catalog I picked up at the BMW Welt during my 335is ED 9/10).
