2nd Gen X3 Pic's

Hate to post my own pic's,but wanted to point out a couple of items on these new shots.As Mii pointed out.... this is the first 2nd Gen X3 test mule spotted that is not painted "BMW Test Mule Black".Also,this car has what appears to be production ready roof rails.....also not spotted before on an X3 test mule.In the direct side shot look at the difference in the clearance under the front wheelwell compared to the rear wheelwell.This driver hammered the accelerator when he realized I had a camera.The car really "jumped" when he hit the gas.You can also see very clearly now the family resemblance to the X1, new 7 Series and 5 Series GT in the hood and front quarterpanel of the new evidenced by the side shot.Enjoy.Thanks!
