I'm trying to decide what color X3 those would look nice on.... nope, can't think of any.

Maybe Silver... because they wouldn't show.

Also not seen any X3s with xline pro either other that one at the motor show.

Tell you what, if everyone wants to chip in a few £££ or €€€ or $$$, I'll get the silver mirror caps and xline pro fitted to my TS and take some pictures for you all

Anyone know if the X line pro in the UK is different from the X line with SAP in the US? Some photos suggest that they're different and some look about the same.

Also I dinged my driver's side mirror within the 1st week and had to paint over it myself. Some pics of the mirror cap would be nice.

xline pro is different to xline. See this thread for pictures of an X3 wit both. Note extra side trim, different front/back bumpers to xline

I quite like it but not sure about the double line down the side. Maybe I will be able to pick and choose or just buy the lot but only install the bumpers

The double line would probably not show on your TS (front/back bumper is big improvement with x line pro IMO)

I realize this is an old thread but I'm a new member and can't post a new one yet. I recently bought a 2013 Aspen White X3 35i Msport. I'm used to modding my old subaru legacy gt wagon so have the itch to customize the X3 just a little.
I was looking at carbon fiber mirror caps, something like these http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/151271068510?lpid=82
Anyone tried these and can report on the quality? I searched but didn't find anything on this forum.
