I don't know about the 330, but here is some 2003 X5 hot news from last night:

I'll get straight to the point here. The changes for Model Year (MY) 2003 are as follows:
DVD-based NAV (about f-ing time!)
Auxiliary output for MP3 (on the back of the head unit)
In-dash CD with NAV
Montana leather replaced with Dakota leather
Brake Force Display (variable intensity brake lights)
Rear head airbags
Adjustable ride height suspension with the sports package
V-rated all season tyres w/unrestricted speed limiter on 4.4i SP
The Valvetronic 4.4i engine as fitted to the e65/e66 will NOT be offered for MY '03. NONE of the dealers in the US are aware of these changes so expect them to look confused if you ask them about any of the above. All these features are significant IMO and are the biggest changes yet seen since the e53 introduction. No mention of Angel eyes b/c they won't be offered either. Tom Salkowsky (M brand manager) pointed out to others pushing the V12 LMR into the PTG BMW trailer, "Look at those lights!" "Oh man, look there's another one!" This was in reference to seeing TommyX and gr8wall's Xs leaving BMW NA. Martin Birkmann (e39/e53 brand manager) mentioned me and EM IV in front of the large crowd too. In addtion, it was a pleasure to meet Hudson479 for the 1st time as well as seeing Chris F. again.
That's all for tonight. Pictures to come on Saturday.
