Finally got pictures: X3 35d M Sport space gray

I finally got the pictures done - please comment!

All I can say is that the X3 is a hell of a car. I have about every option possible
except for the sunroof and the speed sign/limit recognition. I do not miss the sunroof but wish I had opted for the speed sign/limit thing. It would come in handy here in Switzerland.
She is broken-in (3,000kms) and took her to Germany last weekend ... the 35d is a peach

Thanks! It's actually a real good colour as far as dirt goes.

Ya, I'm another Canadian envious of you 35D. ... although I do love my 35i just the same.

Very nice! Congrats and enjoy in good health as we say over here...

Love space gray - had it on a 550 and it looks great on X3 too. Best of all worlds - great to look at and easy to clean..

Wish we had the 35d here in the states

I never tire of seeing the pics of people's new cars.

I am warming to the m sport and it looks great in space grey. Great choice.

I am going to have to give mine a wax and feed it some more carrots so hopefully the engine will grow to be that big!! There is so much space in the engine bay with the 20d engine!

Thanks guys! I must admit the 35d is extraordinary, and gets fantastic mileage.
I think people in the US and Canada will one day discover how great diesel power is, and will demand them from their importers.
I'm an American in Switzerland and I swore I would never drive a diesel. I then tried out a 330d and was converted. This is now my 3rd BMW diesel - 330d; 335d, X3 35d - and I can say that, in my opinion, it's the best way to go, especially on large vehicles such as the X3 and above.

Your car looks stunning! I am starting to seriously consider space grey in place of titanium silver!

Thanks again . I saw the titanium silver and it is beautiful but, in my opinion, the space gray just looks a bit better. I don't want to sound silly but I would say it looks somehow... more expensive?

PS. I applied mild HDR on this last shot
