X3 F25 English Brochure Released

Australian BMW site has been updated to include the new X3 brochure for download.

Unfortuantely I'm having problems uploading to the forum, but you can download from www.bmw.com.au (looks like the official translation of the German version released a couple of months ago).

Nice one. Thanks for this. This is the actual link that will download it (takes a while from the UK)

http://www.bmw.com.au/brochurePDF/F25_02_2010.pdf

I can't upload the actual PDF either but this link allowed me to get the PDF

On page 23 where the M Sport Package details are there is a disclaimer which says, 'Gearshift paddles are not available in Australia'. Anyone know the reason for this ?

Same in the UK. Are you right hand drive, like us? Maybe that's the cause?

The few things I've seen on towing said 2400 Kg (5280 pounds). The Aussie version is rated 2200 Kg (4840 pounds). Haven't heard anything about the official American-version towing spec yet.

Right hand drive yes. It would seem strange if that were the case given that you can order other models here with the paddles.

According to a dealer, in the US, the F25 X3 is rated 3500 lb. That's probably because of the US trailer hitch classification system: since the X3 doesn't meet the class 3 requirements (up to 5000 lb), trailer hitches for the X3 will be in class 2 (up to 3500 lb).

It's the same thing with the E83. It's rated 2000 kg in Europe, but only 3500 lb in the US.

You loose 500 lb just because of the classification system.

According to X3's German price list, Sport Automatic Gearbox (i.e. with paddles) is only available with N55 engine.

It's the same thing in the US and requires the sport activity package.

Thanks clarence. Given that the Australian market won't be getting the xDrive35i with the N55, that might explain it. It still seems a little odd as we will be getting the xDrive30d which has the same engine as the 330d which can be ordered here with paddles.
