Very nice, thanks for the pics!

Does anybody know when this will be available in the US?

Also does anybody know if this black xline trim roof rails will be able to order as an option for non-M-Sport models as well? I know it is possible with the X5, my friend has all black trim and roof rails on his X5 which is not an M-Sport, but maybe the X5 just has an option of either silver or black trim?

Well done. Thanks for sharing. I was just looking at the one we have on the lot. What a difference the M Sport makes!

Regards,

David

I am seeing that correctly?

It has a euro headlight on one side and a US headlight on the other(Orange reflector).

I think you're right. Really odd. Maybe they are trying to see how it looks with both versions, but using 1 test mule.

I suspect you will have to wait for the facelift for LED turn signals eliminating the orange reflectors, much like the e90 sedan.

Guys, I was at a local dealer this week and saw, side by side, a loaded X3 and an X5 SAV. The sticker price on the X3 was $55k!!!! And I have to say that the looks were absolutely incomparable, despite obvious vast improvements on the X3. I have been VERY eager to see an X3 with M-package, but I have to assume its MSRP will inch close to $ 60k, so at that point, for almost the same price, you get a fantastic-looking X5. Granted it is a huge car, but it seems to me that the only deciding factor at that level will be "need of space/size", no?

The X3 vs X5 driving dynamics are completely different. Since I dont need the space, I will be driving a Msport X3 sometime soon.

Yeah I asked about the black rails too and was told they can't get them, same for the black grill as well in the US.

I noticed in the assesories they have em for the X1 as an option, so maybe they will be available sometime in the future for the X3?

The wheel gap looks funny... maybe it needs lower suspension or bigger wheels/tires.... besides that looks ace.

M Sport looks very good on all bmw models, making the normal versions a little bit bland

think it is no longer pretty especially front bumper and small tires. What happened to the earlier pretty front bumper photos of the X3 M package in white released in July? These ones has some kind of hideous strips/reflectors on the front bumper for whatever reason.

I think this might be only in the US like the orange indicators in the lights which I'm not keen on, but not 100% sure
