DSB X3 35i via PCD last week

Thanks to all on this board for your input and advice - it made our decisions much easier and the overall process much smoother.

We picked up our 2011 X3 35i (DSB, Mojave leather, ZAP, ZCV, ZCW, ZPP, ZTP, 677, 6NR) at the PC last week - I highly recommend the experience to all! The track, skid pad and off road course driving opportunities were a blast! The instructors were great, all of the staff were friendly and helpful, the hospitality was outstanding. We could not have asked for a better way to take delivery (other than via ED followed by the same PCD experience - alas, not possible with the X3).

Some photos are attached. Note the off road course - my wife was certain she was going to roll the X3 (not ours) on her turn, but of course she did not.

OK, here are photos (fingers crossed).

Sorry about that (Safari crashed during the last upload attempt, hope this one goes better).

Please post some pics of the interior. Would like to see the Mojave leather, as I'm interested in ordering the same.

Mojave pics

Tried to do this in garage light, but the result is not really representative of the real life appearance. I will try again later this week in daylight.

I would describe the color as a taupe or dark putty like hue. It really looks good in person, hopefully the daylight pics will show that.

The drive was back was great! The trip through Smokey Mountain NF was a bit degraded by the slow traffic, but the vistas were fantastic. Have not spent much time driving through the southeast, and I must do it again soon. Next PCD will have to involve the Tail of the Dragon I kept hearing about!
