Here are some pics of my new X3. My specs are:

Silver Gray Metallic
Terracotta Montana Leather
Premium Package
Sport Package
Aluminum Trim
Heated Front Seats
Park Distance Control
Xenon
Premium Sound
Satellite Radio Prep
Privacy Glass

So far, I've only put about 20 miles on her. Nothing like the feel and smell of a brand new BMW!!!! :bigpimp:

Yeah, I guess I have to.

Man, it was hard giving back the 330cic. She was the best car I've ever owned so far. :cry:

Hey Bruce- Great looking car and color combo. And I really do like the spanish architecture of your neighborhood!!! L.A. has great older houses like this. Sorry, I had to give the signature bimmerfest I like your house response. lol :rofl: :thumbup: Also, do you notice any diffrence in quality in your 330cic and the X3 like door closing sounds etc.; I noticed this while sitting in an X3 in the showroom.

Good luck.IMO I think that the Sports Package makes the SAV, and the ride is not harsh like many have posted, its softer than my 530i.Check out my post about Red Rear Reflectors it accents the rear bumper, like on the 5 series. Again good luck,enjoy. Love the stainless exhaust tips.
cheers

Thanks for the comments on the houses in my 'hood. I LOVE older spanish houses...so much character. Mine was built in 1925 but all its guts have been updated in the last 4 years.

So far the quality of the X3 seems on par to other BMW models I have owned. The only thing I notice about the doors is that they are so much lighter than the doors in the 330cic.:dunno:

Thanks vern. I agree about the sports package. I think it beefs up the X3's looks greatly. I have not seen any other X3's around where I live with the sport package.

My dealer said most people don't order X3s. Just buy them off the lot. The dealers don't order sport package, just premium package in order to keep the price down.

I also think my X3 was the first manual X3 the dealership had ever ordered. Lots of the staff from service were checking out my car while I was waiting to take delivery. It was kind of cool! :thumbup:

FYI, they only gave me 1/2 tank of gas! Cheap bastards! :rofl:

Re: new X3

Bruce,

Great looking X3! Interior is tops also. I love the terracota sport pkg combination. Classy indeed. You'll have many thousands of miles of driving pleasure ahead of you! Now get going!!!

Very nice color combo Bruce - that's pretty close to the way I would order one. :thumbup:

Yeah I have never seen a sport pkg X3 on the lot here (in NH), and I think I have only seen 1 with a manual.
