Any pics of 2006 with Sport Package?

Does anyone have pics of their 2006 X3 with the sport package? I am curious to see the rims in a real life photo. I am also curious about the "M" interior badges. Thanks!

I plan on getting the 20" X5 4.6 rims. They look nice on the X3.

SUkid:

I had a feeling that was it... And I dont like it...

I found a pic of those as well. I am getting them either way I think. That way if I do hate them, I can trade them in to my Wheel guy. He said the X3 19's are worth $1000.

So I think these are the wheels Ill end up with. Chrome of course!



What do you guys think?

Now those I like!

If they offered those as an upgrade, I'd get them for sure.

That silver X3 isn't the sport package, it's aerodynamic package

Nice. I have the same one and I love the color. I am however dying to try the 19" Y spokes on it. I would like to know if anyone has gone from the 18" over to the 19" rims (on a sport packaged vehicle). I am trying to determine if the investment is worth any gain in handling.

Thanks man! Actually it doesn't have one on the hatch; the steering wheel and door sills are the only places (unless I just haven't noticed them anywhere else!).

The M badge inventory on a USA-spec sport package car, or for that matter a Euro M sport package car is:
-- One on the steering wheel
-- One per door threshold
-- One per alloy wheel

There have been sport package models with the M on the exterior (side moldings; very small) some years ago, but in recent years no BMW with an M sport package or a sport package has come from the factory with an M on the trunk lid or hatch.
