COMMENTS


Beginning with March production, the following changes take place for X3:

xDrive35i 19" wheel style 309 now available with all-season tires (this wheel only available with Sport Activity Package (ZAP))

M-sport Package available as of April production. It includes typical sporty interior M trims along with:
  • 2TB Sport automatic transmission (35i only)
  • 2VG Performance Control
  • 3MC High-gloss Roof Rails
  • 481 Sport Seats
  • 715 Aerodynamic Kit
  • 760 Shadowline exterior trim
  • 225 Sport Suspension delete
  • 775 Anthracite headliner
  • 7XA Sport steering wheel w/ paddles (35i only)
  • 18" style 368M with all-season tires for xDrive28i ZMP
  • 19" style 369M with all-season tires for xDrive35i ZMP
  • * Pricing will probably about $2000 more than a car equipped with the sport package.
X3 Receives new BMW Apps (6NR) as an option with April production

The BMW Apps (6NR) option is described as:
Coming as the next advancement in BMW's ConnectedDrive Strategy, BMW Apps will provide new, unique ways of connecting driver, vehicle, and iPhone. Please be advised that adding option 6NR to any vehicle will automatically add Smartphone Integration (6NF) without an additional charge. 6NF will no longer be available as a standalone option. At the time of launch, BMW Apps will offer three functional areas (Apps, Plugin, and Video Playback).
  • Apps will consist of the BMW Connected App and BMW Certified 3rd Party Apps. The BMW Connected App is a free package available for download at Apple's App Store and currently includes Web Radio, Facebook and Twitter. Announcements for BMW Certified 3rd Party Apps will be forthcoming.
  • Plugin allows the user to take advantage of Apple iTunes features (such s Genius, album art, compiling playlists, etc.) that were previously unavailable. In essence, this function brings the look and feel of Apple's iPod interface to the iDrive display (requires snap in adapter)
  • Video Playback enables the user to view any video playback from their iPhone via the iDrive display when the vehicle is stationary (requires snap in adapter).
BMW Apps will be available on all BMW vehicles as of March, except for X3, X5, and X6 models, where the availability will begin as of April. iPhone models supported include 3G, 3GS or 4 enabled with the "BMW Connected" app available free of charge at Apple's App Store.

This model has been out 2 months and already a package change. How strange. One of my neighbors picked one of these up to replace her LX350. Looks sharp in black.

Fellow member "ALPINEWIESS"'s X3 in black looks really really sharp.
It is good that BMW is adding packages rather quickly; shows a healthy competition.

Yes, because, I believe, it will include VDC (Variable Damper Control) which renders a specific "fixed" suspension setup irrelevent. I believe.

Sweet, so just add 2k to my built x3 for ZMP...

I can't decide, if I do get one and get ZMP, I think I would be afraid to do some light off-roading in it. Where as if I don't get ZMP, the plastic bits are less likely to show any light trail rash...

You shouldn't do any offroading in a X3, they were built to be road cars only. Go get a land rover or jeep even for just light offroading.

curios about what the M-package will cost in Norway.. Removal of sports seats, pearlpoint upholstery 18" wheels, x-line and sports steering wheel will save me about 30k pounds and the price leap up to the M-sports package might be within reach :-)

Can someone confirm or have details about the "Sport suspension delete" replacing by the VDC (Variable Damper Control)?

In the UK at least, M-pack gives You sport suspension. Deleting this will give You regular suspension, VDC is optional.

If you chose VDC it will remove the sport suspension option from the M-sport package. VDC is not included in M-sport. You can also remove the sport suspension from the package if you wish (without any additional cost).

I have an X5 with M-Sport, and while considering replacing my aging E90 with an X3, I like the M-Sport package but don't want a second vehicle that requires two wheel/tire sets. If what I read above is correct it appears the M-Sport package will still include all season tires. That keeps it in consideration!

Does anyone know if it is possible to replace the M-sport wheels with another set (like the 309's?). It's not possible in the configurator atleast...

Jason or anyone who knows:

Do you know what the order code is for the 309's with the all season tires {mentioned in your March update original post}?

My dealer says he cannot see a different order code for the 309s that spec this.

Also, any idea what tire make and model this all season will be?

I see nothing on Tire Rack.

Thanks in advance!

Same situation here. The pricelist in the other sticky shows the option code for it, but I am told it doesn't exist to order.
