Right...you ran our X3 experience the difference event in Kalamazoo! Oyster is the ivory interior....is that what you got?

I ordered a mineral silver 35i and I have to say I am soooo tempted to change it to metallic black! If I didn't live in Michigan where the vehicle would get so filthy, I'd change my order in a heartbeat. Post some interior pics if you can!

Yep, thats the only thing keeping me from ordering black. I'm a neat freak and it would drive me nuts to see it dirty! What part of FL are you from? We LOVE to visit Sanibel Island every year! Been going there since I was a kid

Went there too as a kid because my grandfather lived there! Don't think I could live in Fl unless I was on the water!

Nice ride glen - so you're gonna tint the front 35 percent, and will that match the factory tint as it came? Picking mine up this week and wasn't sure what percentage tint the rears came in and what to tint the fronts to all blend...

Yup.... Privacy option is 35%....so 35 solar guard matches perfectly
Here's it done...pic looks a bit diff due to exposure but match is 100 %

BTW, there is a dealer installed option accessory (meaning DIY if you want) that I saw in Mobile Alabama at a dealership. It is factory accessory - no eBay crap. It is called the "satin trim kit", I think, and puts a small 1/8 inch piece of aluminum satin trim around all the wood in the interior.. Not too much, but adds a bit more elegance to the interior. Same type trim that is there now. All the team members on the tour really liked it. Sorry no pics. retails for about $350 I think..ask your dealer.

Very nice.

I'm purposely staying away from the dealership so the "trade bug" doesn't bite me any harder than it already is.
