Picked up! Black sapphire / Chestnut 35i (executive and premium, X-line delete)

Picked up on Monday















Disappointed at BMW Canada on two things: Not offering paddle shift and heated rear seats. Otherwise, great car, and a surprisingly better drive than my previous E70 4.8i!

Looks good with those big fat tires on it. I assume those are summer tires? How do they work in the snow?

I have to say that looks stunning, really like the privacy glass and glad I opted for that.
Heated rear seats are available here in uk, though very costly

Wow, great car & great pics! Congratulations!

What surprises me the most is that the car does not need chrome around the windows / chrome roofrail. All black looks really gorgeous!

And those wheels... jummy!

Beautiful! Congrats - thats the combo that I will be ordering…unless I change my mind again. The chestnut looks great in your pics and doesn't look so red.

Great photos. Did you have the snow professionally applied to the car I too am impressed how well the stealth non XLine works. I've shown my wife some of the other chestnut photos and she hated the colour but it looks a lot better in those.

I promptly had snow tires put on it - the summer tires would be worthless in the snow.

It's got dynamic comfort, sport, tech, executive and premium. X-Line bits deleted from the exec pkg as well.

The colour isn't a bright red - more like a rusty red. BMW canada calls it "Red-Brown Leather." The other choice I was contemplating was oyster, but worried that it would be a hassle to keep clean.

Have you tried a standard X3 and if so, can you compare that ride with the "normal" VDC ride in yours? Is it softer or stiffer? I'm curious as I've only managed to try the standard model but the one I ordered has VDC and is still on its way here...
