Cool First Real Life Pics of 2012 BMW X3

Now that the 2012 X3 has been officially announced and shown by BMW, X3s are free to roam the streets naked, without their constricting and stuffy camouflage coverings. Spotted here in Munich are black and white X3s, the first real life photos of uncovered 2012 X3's.

In case you missed the official BMW X3 online release last week, you can find all photos, specs, videos, and info here: http://x3.xbimmers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=408177

Those headlights are hideous!

The chrome eyebrow and the reflector in the headlamp assembly have to go.

I guess that means the US might have the orange reflector in the headlamp.

The black one (which, correct me if I am wrong, is not with M package) is digestible. The white one is a joke.

Why BMW can't make somthing like GLK.
At least try to copy it if you can't come up with an idea.

What a let down. Q5 wins in this category.

Too bad.

Ditto.

Overall, I think the car is an improvement in the design category, but not without SNAFUs. First up, BMW's inexplicable use of plastic body cladding. It's cheap, ugly and pointless. Didn't they use the same junk on the original X3 and then remove it when the LCI came out? Is that its only purpose - to have an easy "fix" to make the LCI look better? I guess the only options are to M-Sport or hope that black hides it better than these photos seem to indicate.

Second, I will continue to reserve my opinion on the headlights until I see them in person, but they have the potential to be a major eyesore.

Audi is sooooo shitting on us design wise its not even funny.

New Q7, S5 and A6 are probably one of the best designed cars i've seen in a VERY long time, they really win in their category design wise.

These are both very basic base models, wait for top trim M-Sports to make you final decision...

So many people think the new X3 is ugly. Why? It is just a little truck, with its own standard of beauty. Soccer moms will love it.

The GLK is a over-styled, boxy, overweight pig, and the motor will never hold up to the X3's N55... sooo MB is screwed now!

It visually thins the vehicle a bit, thats its purpose. Also negates the need to protect those panels from debris damage.

What is with BMW and the ugly 80's looking support bars behind the grills on all the new models?
