ID:	45731122" M-310 Wheels and looks super!!

These pics where taken as soon as we arrived to the BMW dealer from the harbor and I noticed that on my X3 they've added a very small M emblem on both font fender, something I liked but haven't seen it on other pictures I've seen on the new 2015 model?!

Enjoy the pics and I promise to post more explicit pictures of this beauty once the vehicle has been delivered on my wife's birthday which is next month.Click image for larger version

Does your car come with two tow hooks? I only have one in my car.

Why would the dealer even place the two hooks on to begin with?

Tnx all for your positive comments!

This is how the vehicle arrived, with a tow hook on the front bumper and another in the back.

The wheels are the 310-M in 20".

Next week the local BMW dealer is going to connect this beauty to their computer which is when the warranty kicks in and they'll get rid of both tow hooks and also of all the plastic that's on the X3 as you can appreciate that is used for shipping (abroad).

After that it will be taken for a tint job (medium) and then back to the dealer until next month when I'll be surprising my wife with this beauty as her birthday gift!

I'll post new pics including of the interior after the vehicle has been delivered.

Best to all

It's beautiful! And an awesome birthday present for your wife!

I recently placed an order for a 2015 X3 sDrive28i in Alpine White (with Mocha interior, Msport package) and the 310m wheels. Man, I can't wait

Congrat Taurus and I am sure your wife would love it.

By the way, do you have a bigger picture of the M emblem. Did you make any special ordering for them (line designation or etc)?

Hi All,

Here are some additional pics especially with the little M emblem on both front sides of the vehicle.

The glasses were tinted today (medium).

Again, I haven't seen this on any other 2015 X3 with the M aerodynamics package and I did not made a special request for these, however I'm pleased the vehicle has them!Click image for larger version

My guess is you have it because you're in Aruba.

I remember seeing this M logo on the fender in the European online vehicle configurator before it was launched on BMWUSA.com. It seems like other parts of the world may receive the M fender logo while in the US, for whatever reason, we do not.

Personally I'm okay without it, with the chrome dummy piece filling in the old turn signal, + model designation on the door, this M logo feels quite crowded.

It's completely understandable to say that this beautiful tiny M emblem feels quite crowded if you can't have it.

The good thing is that I have it and I honestly have to say that it's a totally great addition to all this beauty has in & out!

Wait till after delivery when I will post pics of the interior as again, in my opinion same as M is the only way to go with the 35i motor and not the 28i, the Ivory White with the Brushed Aluminum is the cleanest, sportier & coolest looking way to go.

Now my wife's X3 was also build in SC just like all others with exception of Europe, the only deference is that this particular one was build for export and was shipped to the head quarters in Mexico representing the South American & the Caribbean market after they moved the Panama quarter to Mexico and I can't think of any reason other that we end up paying so much more for the exact same vehicle as you do due to export + import duties that maybe this is why they've decided to add this tiny but extremely cool M emblem on our vehicles?!

Next will be my Birthday present and it's between the M4 vs the Nissan GTR.

In Aruba, don't think that is a little over kill on an island which you can't go faster then 50mph..

Oohh...believe me, on this Island even though the roads are not build for it, when possible, we do go much much faster!

Especially during the very late hours.

Been to Aurba many times as well as Bonaire, don't see the need for such a car like that, but I guess if you like getting up late and "Driving fast" is you things, have fun.

Okay as promised here are additional pics from my wife's surprise Birthday present which was this past Tuesday.

I first presented her with a small gift, then followed the miniatured X3 (wrapped) and right after I handed the key wrapped in gift paper as well and told her to see if the key will start the miniature X3 she's currently holding or if the key will start the X3 parked outside?!

Enjoy as we are definitely enjoying this new Beemer, however I have to admit, after driving the X3 for 3 days in a row and after took my almost 10 yrs old 330Ci, what a huge deference in driving feeling at least for me!

Both are fun to drive but the convertible is a whole deferent experience.

Best to all.Click image for larger version

Tnx Maxhere!

Can't wait to reach the first 5.000 km on my wife's X3 so I'll be able to finally get some juice out of it by driving it in the Sport+ mode!
