Just added media pro package and took some other spec. off my order. Dealer told me they need to contact BMW UK before committing the changes to check production impact. I have to wait a few days to find out what, if any, the implications are.

Was the chrome tail pipe standard or did you purchase as accessory?

The car looks great, the sienna trim which I was unsure off looks fantastic, I'm 100% getting those grilles (there goes the summer holidays). The interior looks great. Yeah you have had a great day with the weather, I've been in the Garden all day re-rendering the wall, Patio and cutting the lawn. I'm knackered, and my face in burned red, great.

Cost was approx 50 see accessories sticky post

Fitted in about 30 secs, looks much much better in person (shocking it is not fitted as standard!)

Love it! Exterior looks fantastic and the interior combination works well. Really like the Oyster and Sienna although I paired the Wave with mine. Still time to change...... mmmmmm.

My current UK xD 20d SE spec:

Mineral Silver
Oyster with Fineline Wave
Sports Seats - Heated
Folding, dimming Ext mirrors
Rear Assist with top view
Prof multimedia

Order in and due 5 November (my choice - company car goes back around then)

BUT

Likely to add:

Business speakers
Sport steering wheel
and Auto box - awaiting test drive; manual only driven so far.
Finalised my order today. Not sure that I can lay all the blame on this forum, but costs seemed to have increased significantly!

OK, so build currently looks like this:

X3 xDrive 20d SE Auto
Mineral Silver
xLine
Oyster with Fineline Wave
Sports Seats - Heated
Folding, dimming Ext mirrors
Rear Assist camera with top view
Prof multimedia
Business speakers
Sport steering wheel
Xenons
Extended storage

Build week 38 and delivery week 45 - fingers crossed!

Thanks, Bimmer.

Not sure about fun just yet but the wait is certainly going to feel long, although more time to save up!

According to the dealer my X3 is slowly making its way across the Atlantic for delivery to me on the 16th May. Although I said I wouldn't I've been on to the Wallenius website to try and track it but can't locate it via the VIN.

Think that Sfax's original post said that not everyone's car appeared on Track and Track. Think likely that many on here have tried to track, so just wondering how many actually managed to find their cars? I'm hoping its a few and the car isn't just sitting in a car park in the US somewhere.

My Oyster Leather is holding up well and think you will love it especially on the sport seats!

Good to hear that. The oyster certainly looks great in your car.

It seems a bit hit and miss but so far I know of three (including you) that have tried and not been able to track it and two (me and BimmerUK76) that have. It's a shame because it fills in the time nicely watching go in and out of ports. I wouldn't worry about it if you can't find it. If the dealer is telling you 16 May that will be accurate at this stage

I'm glad I'm not the only one whose costs increased because of xBimmers. I think I saw a mineral silver X1 earlier - it looked fantastic in the sun (can you get an X1 in MS?) but I still haven't seen one X3 on the road, unbelievably!.

Great spec BTW. The two things on yours that I might have considered in hind sight are rear assist and extended storage. And I would have added 6NR but I couldn't when I ordered.

Did think about 6NR but couldn't really see myself using it.

The Xenons are partly down to you though, or at least you made me think about them a bit more. Bimmer's report back on his pharmacy run also helped.
Then, when I was out in a demo manual last week, I saw those coronas reflected in the back of the car in front and it brought it all back to mind.
It was early evening and as luck would have it the auto headlights kicked in at one point and I began to see the potential of the Xenons.
Checked out the DRLs when I got back to the dealers; they looked great and I was sold!
