Thanks for the comment.

Sseedragon, do you have any soundclips on youtube? Thanks!

All of the X3s here look great. I bought mine as a transitional car, but I like it so much I want to keep it around.

Mein Auto: 2005 X3 2.5i
2005 X3 2.5i. Bought it late March @ 92,600 miles for $10,975 (excluding tax, title, doc fees). Pano roof works, I was surprised it had Bluetooth and an iPod hookup as well. I don't feel I did too bad at all. Previous owner did a bunch of preventive maintenance before he traded it in.

The night we picked it up. Next to my brother's 2007 Mini Cooper S:


A couple days later:


After a wash (Sorry, these are really close up)


Debadged the sides while I was at it:


Nothing too special.

Very nice gat ! I'm hoping to not have too many problems with our new one. I made the dealer throw in an "after market" warranty with ours. You did real good! We paid $13,500 for our '04 with 100k mi's even on it

Thanks, Redding! The only thing I'm bummed about is it not having xenons, but I can live without them for now. I lucked out as I had seen 2 other X3's, both with the pano roof broken and the interior basically shot with all the water that leaked in. Saw this one the next day and immediately went to see it. Only thing was that the car was running on 3 different brands of tires (Michelins up front, Uniroyal and Pirelli at the rear) with the rear two almost bald. Replaced all 4 corners with Continental DWS and will do a TC fluid change asap.

Enough talk, though! We need more pics!

The Beemer

Just bought my 2006 X3 3.0i in April with 92000 miles in Mystic Blue with gray interior. This was previously a Certified BMW and the car looks and drives like new! Looking to put some aftermarket items on it shortly but I want to retain the BMW philosophy!

Is that tint legal where you are? If so, what percentage is it? It looks great!

Thanks a lot, If you are refering to me the tint is actually legal and straight from the factory or dealer option. Unsure of the % Ill check when I get off. Never really paid attention to it honestly. I say dealer option but I can only assume that because the original paperwork states privacy tint. I could be wrong lol

SoLOwX3 Yes, I was referring to your X3. Do you have black interior? That could be the reason the tint looks so dark.
