Dealers dont tend to stock HK audio because people who buy off the lot dont generally want to pay for the option, unless the car is a loaded car. if you are looking at a loaded X3 M40i you can likely find a few with HK audio.I am looking to get a new X3 this month. Although it seems like so few in stock have the HK sound. What's up with that? Are most people satisfied with the standard sound system in the X3?
Good insights. We bought our X3 with HK off the dealers lot about 6 weeks ago. It was a special order and the woman who ordered it changed her mind and wanted a new X5. It also had a couple of other options that we didn't necessarily want/need but everything else met our needs.Dealers dont tend to stock HK audio because people who buy off the lot dont generally want to pay for the option, unless the car is a loaded car. if you are looking at a loaded X3 M40i you can likely find a few with HK audio.
You will likely only find it on a X3 30i if it was an ordered car that someone ended up not taking for some reason or if there is a dealer in an area who sells to people who demonstrate they are willing to pay for it.
Thats also why you dont tend to see things like suspension options on "on the lot" cars.
Just plan on ordering the X3 in the color you want, with the options you want. In general, you can get an X3 in about 4-6 weeks.
I agree. I think the HK has improved since the previous generation. The tweeters in my '16 F26 used to sound harsh to me. I couldn't get them out of there fast enough. In my G02 I found the sound acceptable and I think it's probably good enough for most. The new higher placement in the doors helps too.You will see lots of threads on HK ... both good and bad. Ignore them all and just get the car with HK option. Beauty is subjective and most will agree the standard system isn’t acceptable - HK should be the standard.

The base has subs under the seats too, there just aren't as many rear speakers (questionable in value; sound stage really should be in front of you), but more importantly the amp isn't as powerful.Have HK on my 2018 x3 ...totally worth I love the subwoofers that are under each of he front seats....Also had it on my previous lease too. No way I would buy one without at least a HK.
