Talking X Line Pro Package Installed!!

Hello there,

Took a while but got the X Line Pro Package Installed, here are some pics














Worth the upgrade? Giving the M-Sport a run for it's money?

Let me know what you think

Yeah - love :-)

I thought I'd responded, maybe forgot to hit the post button.

Something along the lines of "F*8king sweet, just as good as the M-Sport by the looks of the pics". Could even be better up close and ...

Nice job :-)

RO-CK, I have white as well and I'm really annoyed by the black rear bumper. How does the texture look in person? I was worried that painting it wouldn't work well becuase the black strip has a differnet texture. It's not as smooth as the other plastic on the bumper.

@jgroarke: So.... LOVE! Thanks, as I posted before, the main idea was to give the M-Sport Package a run for it's money for less than half the price
@theelblue: I know what you mean, but that is not an issue, as before painting the part, they cover it with some kind of texture to give the "looks and feel" of the other bumper parts, so you don't have to worry about that. The texture is exactly as the metal bumper parts

Cheers!

@ro-ck, theelblue: do you know what the "texture" they put on their to give it the look and feel? I just purchased a white 2013 X3 and I specifically told them no front license plate but they put one on there anyways. The dealer said they would paint the front bumper for free (so basically i would only have to pay for the back portion). Curious to know how it looks up close... Thanks

I would refuse the delivery, in fact I did, since they did the same thing to my X3! Enough to say, that I learned about the fact as I was leaving Hartford, CT, by the time I got to the dealership north of Boston (2.5 hours later) my car had a brand, spanking new bumper, where somebody else, who did not mind the holes, got my bumper! That's what I would expect from any BMW dealership.

I would think it is too late as I already took the car home. I was going to refuse delivery but we ordered the car cause they didnt have what we liked there and we got a great deal cause it was a referral from a friend.

Mine was a custom order as well, and I paid $500 over invoice. All I am saying, you have the right to have your car delivered the way YOU want it and YOU paid for it. There are no ORs, IFs or BUTs about it. And that what you should expect from your CA.

I agree. Thanks for the info. I am looking to paint the panels white similar to RO-CK did so that would be a mute point as they can fix it at that point. If not, I will ask to see how they reimburse me in other ways. Appreciate the help!

Crap, you could have probably bought another X3 for those mods. Looks sweet though.
