Anyone have the Sparkling Bronze with Mojave interior (and sports package, for the dark headliner) and willing to share pics? I'm close to ordering an X3 and am debating this color combo. I loved the Mojave color on a white X3, but would like to see it with Bronze before committing!

Thanks for the pics everyone. Ordered my X3 with Sparking Bronze, Red/Brown leather and Alu trims... Should make a hell of a change to all the boring while/black/grey ones!

Now... 2 months to wait...

Question

Anyone know why there are so few of these colored X3s sold and why can't you get this color with M-Sport? I noticed Martha Stewart got rid of hers.

It's quite strange, it's a very nice color. The dealer said that white was 'trendy' and quite frankly, i'd never stand having a white BMW :-) where I grew up white BMWs were for pimps :-)

Nice photos, I love Sparkling Brown, especially with Mojave interior! I see you also have the staggered 309 setup (275/40/19 rear). I wish the US cars still came this way with SAP

Sparkling Bronze is a great color! I have had my share of white cars and we currently have a white 2002 Jeep Wrangler. So it would look odd to have two white cars in the garage.

Although I have had a shade of brown, Kalahari Beige, on my 2004 X5, I've had my fill of that color too.

I ordered CB/Oyster since that color seems less popular too.

Good selection on interior with the Mojave and another poster said he ordered his with Chestnut which I find another color that is great too.

Here I ordered CB and RB interiors with alu trims. Saw that interior once and it looks great; and I'm sure the CB and RB will work very well too..

InsideLine (now Edmunds What's Hot) has had a long-term X3 in sparkling bronze with the red interior for almost a year now. Go check out their pics.

Thanks, it's a very nice review in fact, the running blog over the long term is pretty cool

Here is another video review of an X3, and it's bronze. Shows how it doesn't look awfully "dirty" like some other colors

Sister car!

Only the second time ever I find another bronze X3 on the road. And this one was austrian, all the way to Wales!
He has XLine and chrome lining, auto box, but not the cameras. Didn't meet the driver tho, it would have been interesting :-)
