Talking Got My X3 Today (pics) - Thanks Everyone!!

Hi All,
I picked up my 2008 CPO X3 with Sports, Premium, and Cold Weather packages. The in service date is October of 2008 so I have full year left of the original warranty. In addition, I was given the employee price for the extended maintenance warranty and the tires/wheel insurance.

I'm VERY happy so far with the car. And I can't wait to take it for a long ride this weekend.

While the CA who sold me the car wasn't that great, the business manager and service manger were awesome. The BM & SM really helped me out today and I look forward to working with them in the future.

I've attached a few of pics of the car...check it out!!

Thanks to all who were so helpful on the forums!! You guys really helped me out and made me feel more confident going into the buying process

I don't mean to burst your bubble, but i don't think you have Sports package. Those aren't sports seats. I do think it's the Sports Activity Package though.
regardless, it's gorgeous!

Congrats, nice looking car.

But, hey, did you know it was going to be a red car, you never mentioned that. :

I'm curious, what kind of kind of tires?

i was thinking the same thing.
the interior looks good though. i love the two-tone.

also, i spy an e46 prefacelift sedan in the driveway
i sold my 99 for the X3 due to high miles (186k+) and maintenance issues were starting to pile up.

You will probably like those seats better anyway. I found the sports seats uncomfortable on long trips. Nice car! I see a red X3 every now and then, mostly at the side of 280 chatting with a Chippie!

Thanks Everyone!!

You guys are funny! Yes, I knew it was going to be crimson. I actually like the color. It's rare and it's fun! My other cars are very subtle (Titanium, Orient Blue) so I had to go brighter with this one. Plus, you'll be able to find me in a snow storm

So far, so good. The car rides smoothly and I feel like I have complete control of the road. I don't feel like I've given too much up when I switch between the other cars and this one.

And yes....that is an E46 in the driveway! It's still going strong, but I want to sell it soon.

You are correct, Sports Activity Package, not SPorts Package. For the X3, the dealer recommended SAV over Sports so I would have better control in the snow.... (Not too stiff handling)

spokelizard, i did know it was going to be red. i quite like it!

the stock tires, which are all brand new on this CPO, are Bridgestone Turanza (not sure of specific model), but they are all season tires.

Thanks everyone! I've noticed a lot of heads turning when I drive by. One guy stopped me in traffic to ask if it was a typical BMW color. It looks great with the privacy glass tint :-)
