Having looked at quite a few in real life since my last post, now I'm convinced Silver Gray metallic non Msport is best looking X3 for me personally (face lift). I liked black and Blues as well, but something about this dark gray color on X3 makes it look like a l little tank.
Also, the off road running boards really transform the car and balance out its lower section. I think it's a must have.
