Sparkling Bronze delivered today

After ordering on February 26, we finally picked up our X3 28i. It rained soon after so I took some pictures in the garage. Sparkling Broze is extremely difficult to capture accurately. I had to play with the settings on the camera for some time before I managed some shots that came close (and this still doesn't reproduce its subtlety). It varies from an almost medium brown with purple/blue/green metalflake in full sun to a darkish brown in overcast conditions. It is a very rich and in my opinion is a fantastic color. No regrets!



The sand beige interior is perfect. We like lighter/brighter interiors and this is such a relief from our black leatherette 2008 328i. Love, love, love the sport seats!




The Fineline Wave wood is amazing. Personally I think it blows away the other choices. It acutally glows in the right light!




Other than a few challenges figuring out some things in iDrive we are very satisfied and extremely please with the choices we made with our order.

I have a question for you. Does your X3 have a first aid kit in the compartment in the boot? Did it come with a CD for the Navigation? Does the navigation map include Canada?
Thanks.

I am not in Canada. US X3s do not come with first aid kit or warming triangles. My X3 does not have nav (waste of $$$ in my opinion). The nav in the X3 is hard drive based (no DVD).

So the WeatherTech Floor Liners showed up today...







Very pleased with the quality and fit. But I don't understand why the driver's mat has holes for attachment points when BMW uses velcro. For as much as these damn things cost you'd think WeatherTech would not mold in the attachment holes and give you some velcro.

WOW! Those looks super nice and quality seems awesome looking.

Weather tech you said right? How much did you pay? And did you see the BMW OEM ones...how do they compare?

Check out WeatherTech. Right now for the F25 X3 BMW only offers the rubber mats or carpet mats, not anything like the Floor Liners.
