Just don't look out the window. Keep your eyes glued to the nav screen. Maybe even black out the windows. Reality is so passe.

Are you saying if you order the TV you can get the large screen, nicer dials and bypass the NAv option? Want large screen without the option this could be a chepaer possibility. Advise please!

The owner's manual suggests that you do get a larger screen with the TV option. I don't have it to hand but look at the PDF on the US site. Not sure if TV gives you the advanced dials too but this information will be in there too.

How much are they in the UK? I know we don't have as many options as other countries but the items that we do get I think we're spoiled on. These alloys for $600 USD are the only available option from factory other than the ridiculously expensive 20" wheels that you see in M-Sport pics.

PS: Nice photo!

They are 1910.00 or you can get them for 850 if you specify the dynamic pack. Thats around $3000 for that Wheel!

UK 76, if you do a spec build on the UK site, those Alloys are priced at 1910!

These guys in the UK are actually lucky (well, apart from having sinks with a separate hot and cold water tap )

In Euroland the 19" 307 are EUR 2600 ($3600). And then you have to buy an extra set with winter tyres for another EUR 2500. Ridiculous prices indeed.

The 19" 309s aren't cheap (I got them with the dynamic package) but they seem quite reasonable up against the 20" double spoke M Sport alloys. 3,890 for the set or 5,830 EUR or $6,250. Wow.

Hi,
the 19" is usually and upgrade price from the standard wheels, but if you go for the 20" usually you have to buy them as an accessory along with keeping the originals.
What are the basic and mid range sat nav options? In australia we only get the option for Pro Satnav or nothing.....also no 6NR due to legal issues
We are also paying through the roof for ProSat $3501AUD + TV $2249 ontop.
Damn Australia and our 10% GST + 33% Luxury Car Tax......

During my test drive I feel that navi in X3 way better and has bigger screen then in my 330



and one level better then in MBZ 350 and Audi Q5 MMI (with cost whooping $1000 more then iDrive navi in X3)
