The BMW X3 equipped with M-Sport has been making the rounds to all the recent autoshows I can think of. A magnifient Alpine White example was at the Paris autoshow, then a sharp Titanium Silver one was at the Chicago autoshow, but now BMW has graced the X3 with my favorite color for the show here in Geneva, Deep Sea Blue Metallic! This particular model is equipped visibly identically to the M-Sport xDrive35i's we can get in the US, down to the 19" wheels. Enjoy!

Funny he said, " down to the 19" wheels" when in the picture you can clearly read 275/35 R20 on the tyre...

looks sweet...I finally like the X3. BUT....What is up with those calipers? The front calipers look worse then most rear tiny calipers. This is one thing BMW has to step up with!

So much better looking than my previous 07 x3 msport, hope they tuned the suspension because mine felt like a trampoline before.

Looks great, bit disappointed though - I thought they were going to be showing a Carbon Black M Sport, which I'd love to see photos of..

.. so when's the next big automotive show??!

Looks more like carbon black to me aswel.

But I think it's due to the lights or something.
