Tell me about it, as I have already posted already in the F25 forum, I contacted two mangers at BMW NA and being a loyal customer I was still not able to connivence the brand loyalty advocate to add mixed performance tires. I believe that its the same rims on the M-Sport on the 35i worldwide, so mixed performance tires should fit if you decide to get ride of the run-flats.

True, but it'd be nice to have staggered rims as well. Sadly, I think my wheel and tire money is going to go to a set of 18" winter wheels & tires.

Living in SC, BMW NA still would not give me performance tires for a warm weather climate, but it is a blessing in disguise as the mixed performance tires would be run flats anyway here in the US.

It is amazing that customers in Canada when they order the M -Sport get mixed performance tires, and there is plenty of snow in Canada that would warrant all-seasons which is standard on US model spec M-SPort.

As I have stated before, I have ordered the 20 inch M rims and installing non-run flat performance tires.

Will probably use my BMWCA rebate for a Vinshu Proceed unit. Used my 335is rebate for a V1.

Someone in Germany got their Alpine White M sportpaket X3 last week. This picture made me particularly jealous because it has multiple items we can't get in the US............

The white without the amber headlight reflectors looks especially nice.....

Wow, good for you. That is one of the reasons I haven't ordered one yet as I have yet to drive one with DHP and I have very little trust with BMW as I have been burned with my one X3 (not current one), and in most cases I (thanks to this site and many folks here) know more about the product than they do. In fact I still receive calls from dealers and installers on some of their electronics.

How much was the final price tag one this, as it is what I would get if I ever get a chance to drive one with DHP.

PS looks really nice and most know by now I am very critical.

Car looks great! I'm about to order one :-)

Did you order it with DHP?

I still don't know whether the M-Sport package includes the Driving Dynamics Control (Normal / Sport / Sport+) buttons.

My build sheet from BMW Centernet via the dealership lists under 337 M Sport Package: 223 Dynamic Damper Control and 2VG Performance Control. Interesting that ZMP is a line item that lists M Sport Package and 337 is listed further down on the build sheet.

I aslo ordered DHP and the build sheet lists ZDH- Dynamic Handling Package and only 2VL Variable sport steering is listed under this package. It is very confusing.

Here's a video of my X3 (Carbon Black Metallic with M Sport) being built on May 26th, 2011, I will pick up June 23rd at the PCD.
