Cool BMW posts first official X3 teaser photos

The BMW X3 is basicly upon us, with these official teasers starting to make their way around the internet the official internet reveal of this car should happen any day during this weekend!

Aside from the teasers showing off some very interesting design tidbits really move the X3 forward in design, they also give us a glimpse behind into the people who were involved with the design. Namely, Erik Goplen and Ulrich Ströhle. Erik Goplen is the man responsible for the E46 3-Series exterior design, a car that is still loved by BMW fans and represents a solid timeless design principle. Mr. Goplen works @ BMW DesignWorks and Scott26 had the following to say:

Quote:
X3 was done in DesignWorks California , the interior was done in Munich.
The reason why the evolutionary appearence was chosen is because customers like the taut , tough styling of the E83 X3.

E83 X3 had brought customers to the BMW Brand for the first time it was also a vehicle that spread out the BMW brand as a new Lifestyle orientated segment which in turn brought a large majority of new customers to the BMW brand. A feat the recently launched X1 has now repeated.

Typically it is recognisable as an X3 , but it is underneath the surface where you will see and experience the changes, The whole second generation has come about by "reverse engineering" the E83 , we knew what the consumer liked and what they didn't like so they set about refining the plus'es whilst reworking and refining the minus'es.

Overall when you get to see the whole X line up altogether as you will soon, you will see how each demonstrate their own character , differ in dimensions and offer a choice for whatever your requirements need be.
The 2011 BMW X3 introduction is imminent folks. Shown below is the sculpted hood, rear lights, and rear details. We'll bring you more as they are posted.

You can see the Dutch teaser site for yourself @ http://www.bmw.nl/nl/nl/newvehicles/...roduction.html

Do we know yet if the US is getting an xDrive28i/xDrive30i with the N52 engine or are they just going to offer the xDrive35i with the N55? And if the N52 is offered will it be the ~240hp version (which I assume would take the xDrive28i name like the X1) or the ~260hp version (which would get the xDrive30i name like the X5).

This car had potential but the BIG BLACK STRIPE on the rear bumper = fail.

You mean on the preproduction mules? Wait until the end and you can always paint it or get the M Sport package.

I have fully painted bumpers

Even in the test mules you can tell this big black stripe is there to stay, it's integrated into the body... There is paint color above and below it....

Right, on the super base model, just as the current x3 has a black band around it at the bottom. When you add the aerodynamic kit, or M Pack, etc, it goes body color...
