Hi there,

Doesn't the sapphire black sparkle a small amount? I would go for that...makes the finish look unique and high end

Sapphire black.....will be easier to keep clean (hide swirl marks) and it really looks great in the sun!

The saphire black is awesome. Has a nice depth to it and will be less prone to showing blemishes.

I think Black Sapphire is a much more interesting color than Jet Black. But the hands down best BMW color is Carbon Black which the X3 comes in. Give it a look before you decide.

If you like blue/black then ok. If you want black then no. Also Carbon Black is a real bitch to ccolour match if you need a repair. It looks fine in some lighting then wrong in other lighting.
