If you do go for black though, take a look at the Metallic black (Black Sapphire), rather than just the Black. We thought it looked much better.

I see your point about the pano roof, especially since a second hand X3 will be out of warranty.

nice car you have there, very clean. I think the dark gray is what I'll go for once I find one. With weather now being all snowy they aren't for sale from private anymore, so I might have missed my window this year. I still reckon it comes out as the best buy for a used 4wd bmw at this point as its cheaper than X1 or 3 series touring, while more reliable and with more room. I've settled on a 2.0d with automatic gearbox and 176 hp engine.

I actually realised recently that with all this nice wraps you can put on a car, color becomes really a thing that's so simple to change. A film in gray metallic with another clear film on top can solve any paint issues I guess.
