Love my X3

Just picked up my car and I love it ! Silver / chestnut , steering is just fine was worried a little , went from a E92 328xi with the 18 in wheels and this is so much better in some ways , with the coupe in 2 years I needed 1 wheel to replace and three tires , NJ roads stick ! other wise I loved the car ,

Please - oh please - pics of the interior! We are all dying to see this color in different light!

Also- 28 or the 35? Stereo? Options? How about a real review from your perspective thus far?

Please!!!

Everybody have to suffer a little more until I take some pics , until then all I have say I am very happy with my colors I choose silver , chestnut , and the dark wood , when I went to pick up my car there were two couples trying the buy my car just by the color combo , chestnut very nice ! My car is a X28i also that I am happy with the power , trans very smooth , sun roof opens in not on top of the car , driving for few hours really enjoying how it rides , can't be happier , hope to hold on to this for a long while , bought not leased

Congrats Mike185! I'm really looking forward to your pics. How are you liking the dark wood trim? I've yet to see that in person or from owner pics on the forums yet.

Congrats Mike185! I will take my 28i delivery hopefully by next weekend, ordered on 11/9. It's on the truck to NY dealer now.

BTW, do you have the chrome exhaust tips installed at the time of delivery? If so, what's the part number? My CA said not available at least in the dealer part dept as of now. Thanks.

I bought the parts did not put on yet seems easy , the part # is from the same as the X35i break down if they have , when they look up that part it will tell them part # works for X28I AND x35I , I got the parts they did not have the # on them , if that helps tell dealer look up part for the X35i

I'll mention pics again . . . .

While it's truly fun to hear you enjoying your car, and it increases my confidence in my own order, the pictures are essentially a pacifier or a fix I need to help me get through the wait for my own car!!

Don't leave us wannabes hanging too long!

(all meant in good fun, in case that's not clear in writing)
