Arrow

On my way home from work this evening, there was a BMW approaching me, traveling the opposite direction and I immediately thought to myself, "Hmm, isn't that an interesting looking BMW." (referring to the BMW grille) Tried to get a side view as it drove past and saw a slopping roof and "Oh shit, that's an X4!" Was pleasantly surprised. It was black, probably a dealer 35i. For a split second I felt like turning around and chasing after it. Hopefully that wasn't me hallucinating! Oh, the painful wait for my X4 28i.

are those paddle shifters on the standard sport steering wheel? the bmw brochure lists paddle shifters on only the msport steering wheel.

It was the M Sport Line.

Can you order those wheels on the M sport? The silver trim looks like the Xline and I thought those wheels were only available on the Xline?
I like those wheels and have an M sport coming but when you build your own for the M sport those wheels didn't come up as an option.

I am very impressed by the salesman, he can - after a very short and uneventful testdrive- feel that the X4 has "much better" handling due to sitting lower (10 mm?) and being wider (??).

Luckily I have ordered M Sport and 310 20" wheels, so I will not be bothered with the door sills and the Y-spokes.

Xline def has a better look than M-sport version. It needs the 20" wheel from the M though then it's perfect.

thanks for the info. you indicated a walk around video BUT we only saw the right side of the car. It would be nice to see the front/side corner angle of the Xline.

Thanks!

i wouldn't bother...imagine removing the silver plates on the bottom front, both sides door trims, rear silver trims and 17" wheels and you got the basic one for $1000 less.

it's not worth it to save $1000 on that IMO.

There are no cars available in stock other than the initial launch supply, and we sold ours. BMWUSA.com will give you a good idea of what it looks like.
