Big day yesterday... new X3 35i and winter wheels!

Hi all! The wait is over! See my new X3 35i with M-Sport, Premium, Storage compartment pkg, lumbar support, and manual side sunshades. Huge cudos to Calgary BMW over here in Calgary who really did right by me!

Also see my new winter wheels and tires (hopefully they can wait a little while before they gotta go on). They are forged sportline CSL wheels and Micheline Pilot Alpin PA2 Runflat tires. Have to say that I cam quite impressed with the apparent quality in the Sportline wheels and the finish on the wheels from first glance! Big thanks to Jurrian at **********s.com.

Apologize for the low quality Blackberry pics... gonna try and get the Canon on it shortly

Looks great epiphone3. Did you get the BMW centre caps for the winter wheels?

Nice...congrats! Our cars are nearly twins, including the winter wheels. Just got my Sportline CSLs from **********s, and had Pilot Alpin PA4 (non runflat) mounted.

These wheels are outstanding for the price.

Congratulations. It's about time you got the car. Finally another AW M-Sport X3 in YYC. I've only seen 2 or 3 on the road. Did you get the adaptive dampers too? Looks like you have the buttons beside the shifter.

where did you get the wheels and tires? I'm thinking about getting a set for the winter also. And how much was the whole package incl TPMS. Thanks.

no TPMS for us because its not used on the Canadian version (we use wheel speed sensors here) but the cost without TPMS was about $2.5K shipped to Canada. Wheels and tires were from **********s.com who is a forum sponsor. Jurrian helped me out and did great.

No dynamic dampers but the driving experience control is there... I think its either just standard now or that it comes with M-Sport now. Can't remember.

Thanks! I was thinking about getting the 19" version. I had 20" Dunlop winter's on my FX and it handled great in the snow and I wanted to maintain the same look year round. I'll check out the site.

nice! Ideally, I would have gone with the 19's for winter too but I had a budget I was willing to spend... bla bla bla... The 18's definately don't look small off the car, curious to see what they will look like on.

Right now, though, I am just hoping our nice weather here carries on so that I can put some more miles on the factory 19's!
