I have considered oyster but I think itīs more sensitive to "dirt" (?) and I like the lighter interior that includes with beige leather. Maybe youīre right about that oyster or black would fit the msport better. I have black leather in my 135i so I want a change. But now iīm confused again, maybe beige donīt do well with msport...

I have the beige in my 5 series SE but think the oyster looks more sporty and might compliment your m sport better?

Both will look nice with the sienna wood (as does the balck leather)

It will look good, dont worry - trust your gut

I have chosen the Oyster as a change from the biege but the biege does look good with black paintwork in my 5 series

But I'm an interior design buff as well, so don't take it too serious...

What about the red interior? That would probably look really cool, and set your car apart from the more "bland" X3:s, like my white on black...

Wow so 49,000 Kronors is about $7,300 US dollars, that seems insane for the M Package.

It would be $6,000 more than the Sport Activity Package, maybe I am missing something here.

Unfortunately we only have one package in sweden (and m-sport). The car is a bit more expensive in Sweden, the car with my spec is more than 83,000 US dollars

Arvid, I'm about to order mine, just waiting to hear back from my dealer regarding the M-sportpackage. It's a bit expensive, but since I had all the options on already, the premium for the M-sport is only somewhere around 18 000 or something like that, which I think will be worth it.

I'm looking at Carbon Black with Oyster. The only thing stopping me is that I can't see one IRL with that combo. Or even an image online...

When will you get yours? And from what dealer?

The Canadian product planning bulletin, issued on Oct 22, 2010 says "available as of April production" - I hope this helps...

Not this time - I've maxed out pretty much everything but I'm gunning for a comfort ride so for this time - no M package and no Sport package. Standard (for Canada) 18" wheels and VDC to make the ride as smooth as possible... Even though when my wife rode the test model with no VDC she found it acceptable. If BMW works for us, it'll be the beginning of a beautiful friendship, with many renewals down the road. One of them may be a sportier ride

Smile 3 month's delay for my M-sport

I have changed my order of SE to Msport and the dealer quoted 3 months delay delivery.

Its works out to be only about Ģ600 more than the SE of teh same spec with the addition of brush alu, M-sport styling, chrome exhaust trim... etc which I think is a absolute steal.

Also I don't need to add things line X-line pro anymore as the car looks great as it is.

Msport then works out to be cheaper for me and hopefully, I will also get a little more when it comes to re-sale.

Hope the long wait is worth it!

I think that's a good decision on balance, and I would probably do the same if ordering now. Would like to see it in the flesh in some more colours though because I'm not completely sold on the side skirts. What will the total wait be if it's delivered on time?

I have seen it in Paris show, I do admit its not a great look car but probably the most efficient, best to drive and cheapest to run car in this section. It does look better in the real compared to the SE as the black plastic on the real bumper is too big IMO. The black side clading should also be a bit chunkier like RR sport ...the list go on.

I will only give it 6/10 in the looks department (7/10 for M-sport), as I think the X5 looks a lot better, but then it's far to big and expensive for my need.

Its certain a best all rounder compared to others, a similar XC60 Rdesign D5 auto will cost more to buy and own, inferior to drive, looks better, dealer network is weaks as most share with Ford.

Agree on the X5 looking better but like you said, it's too big and more expensive to buy, insure, tax and run. I think I would also drive an X5 much less efficiently than just the difference in advertised mpg, if you see what I mean!

Are you getting it in white then?

White is certainly nice, but it doesn't particularly suit this X3.

I have gone for Space Grey as its the easiest to look after and still looks great IMO. In UK, the weather is too poor and wet for white unless you wash it everyday( then you will leave scratch marks on the surface ), White is more suitable for hotter country like East Asia or some part of USA where the weather is always good.

White colour suits cars with TT, 3 serious coupe or the Evoque much more than X3, I think.
