Hi Tsambi,

Congrats! I've also been looking at ordering the X3 (2.0 diesel). I wanted to test drive 20d and see if its powerful enough, otherwise I might have to wait a few more months for the 30d diesel.

What options did you get? Also, what colour did you settle for?

Cheers,
MPK

What a dilema re colour. I will settle for black on black. I have come to the view that the car looks meaner in black.

I have been enquiring about the 30d and it appears that it won't go into production for Aus until April, so earliest delivery will be in July.

I have optioned up to the max. These are 100% and still finalising one or two:
Metalic, sun roof, bus nav, x line, auto tail gate, xenons with washers, sport seats, extended connectivity, anti dazzle exterior folding miirors, brushed aluminium.

Deciding between 18 Y spoke or 19s. 19s seem to look HOT!

Other possibilities are performance control and top view camera, but in the scheme of things, minor additional costs.

Yes, i heard the same about the 30d model. I was looking to get the mineral silver. Black will look very nice!

Are you not getting headup display? This looks to be a nice addition. I was also looking at getting most of the options you mentioned but decided against auto tail gate, xenons with washers. However, i was interested in getting the top of the range sound system. I was also looking at performance control + variable stearing but not the dampener option.

How much did your x3 set you back? My package came to about 88K drive away.

Cheers,
PK

Give or take about 95K with all the options.

I think you will find if you get 30d tailgate is standard. I was also thing about the dampner control, but where do you stop? You can keep on going and going!!! I haven't really thought about the sports stearing, they seem to sell the sevrvtronic quite well but might enquire more about it. I have until next week to update any options.

Good luck with it all. Sounds very exciting!

Can do your head in though in thinking on what to add as options. I have gone mad with it!!!

Cheers

I don't think the M-Sports pack is available on the x3 in Aust. It wasn't an option on the list of x3 options.
