Ordered! X3 Msport

We did it, our '08 328 coupe is getting a little buddy in the garage!
Ordered tonight:
X3 xDrive35i
Carbon Black Metallic
Black 'Nevada' Leather
Fineline Sienna wood trim
Cold Weather Package
Driver Assistance Package
Rear View Camera with Top View
Dynamic Handling Package
M Sport Package
Premium Package
Technology Package
Premium hi-fi system
Destination & Handling

We hope for PCD in Spartanburg late the first week of June. Can't wait to get tracking info.

The sales folk initially handed us a sheet with Satin Aluminum roof rails but I sent them back for High Gloss instead. The CA said he though High Gloss Rails were chrome, I said they'd be black. Puh-lease tell me I did it right!!

Thanks,
Monica

High gloss rails are black. They will go nicely with with your carbon black X3. Why someone would want aluminum roof rails standing out on a black SUV is puzzling to me. To each it's own.

Does the light wood trim go well with black leather?

Oh, thank heavens! I was worried because I though the guy would *know* but once again, Bimmerfest Rules!

High Gloss is standard with M-sport, it is a bit weird they had Satin on yours as they would have to specifically change it to Satin.

You definitely want High Gloss - it s black and looks great - I agree with the above statement with regards to the Wave wood - either wood will look good with black, but the wave looks better in my book!

Looks like a great setup and you will love PCD!

Hubby sez Fineline not Wavy, so all's fine with me (he let me get the Tech Pkg, after all). We're now watching the web site since we got our production ID like so many of you have done before. I'll have that page bookmarked on my laptop, work pc, and smartphone by day's end. Is it June yet????

Signed,
Impatient in Reston

LOL!
