So new headlamps and nose... can't tell of anything else has changed. does the presence of the LCI in Germany signify chassis tuning?

It looks like the $1900 LED headlight option is making its way down to the X3

Is that a front-mounted camera below the grill? Or maybe just a test sensor that is only on the prototype?

I like how they tape up the roundel and yet the kidney grills are in full view...

So they built it here and sent it to Germany for testing? BMW is not doing that in SC any more? I wonder if it was an X1 since those are still built over there.......If it is, then it has grown some.

LED will be a bit brighter but is it worth the $1900, if I am right, the fog lights are LED as well.

Research, design, development and testing are done in Munich regardless of where the production line is. That prototype was most likely put together in Munich but regular production will still be in SC
