When I select the function I can read the messages I send to the car; it works well for navigation. Also, I can list the contacts from my phone (that I synced using Bluetooth). That's all it does to me - of course there may be more from the Concierge service but I did not try it yet.

4sure - what did you guys go for the black gloss roof rails or satin aluminum roof rails,...."

Have you considered ordering without any roof rails? That's what I am considering for my order (still in progress). I have seen several new X3s with no rails, and like the look. Plus save the $150 for the satin alum ones. Just a thought.

tuco44 - i haven't seen an X3 without the roof rails yet but i was thinking of getting black because i really like the way the X3 in white with the black roof rails looked, just like the picture here: http://carsroute.com/2011-bmw-x3-m-s...ort-package-3/

twistediron - that sure does sound sexy lol, and plus the aluminum will go with the m-sport door sills and foot rest.....

I wished that the X3 M-Sport packaged had dual exhausts like on each side of the bumper...anyone else thinks so???

Word of warning: the black plastic scratches VERY easily. It looks good for about a week. After that, swirl city.

Aluminum is the way to go!

I kinda thought that the 35i should have the dual split exhaust and the 28i the regular dual exhaust. Kinda like the 328 vs the 335. Would have made more sense.

Anyone out there in Canada, especially in Vancouver, order an M-Package X3 yet? If so, what were your options/packages and costs? Much room for negotiations? Are all season tires available instead of summer tires for the M-Package?

I want to place an order soon. BMW in Vancouver is expecting June/July delivery dates for the M-package.

Every country has different options and packages so I would like to relate with someone in Canada.

Thanks!
I just ordered mine and I am in Ontario, Canada!!! lol.

I ordered mine in carbon black metallic with red brown nevada leather with aluminum trim and satin aluminum roof rails instead of the black ones that comes with the M Sport Package.

When are you taking delivery of your vehicle?? Can't wait to see pics!!

I got a pretty good deal with this car and got $3000 off with free floor mats and trunk mat.

It should be there. I've been able to read (and have it read aloud to me) text messages and display my schedule/appointments, as well as the other usual features with a bluetooth synced device.

Mine's on order

I pre-ordered my X3 - M package quite a while ago and I'm told I should have the car in April. I went with white, black interior, black roof rails and fully loaded.

Ordered mine last weekend. Time it for a May build to coincide with my lease expiring in June. I chose satin aluminum roof rails. Seemed to blend in better with a TiAg vehicle.

Should be one of the first Cdn MSports built, and it should be very sharp in that color combo.

Thanks! I was at the dealer to take my husband's M3 in to put the summer tires on, and I was told the car is in transit and is expected hopefully next thursday. It would have been sooner, but apparently there was a delay because of a problem with the electronic rear latch or something.

I'm also told it will be the first one that this dealer has received. Just in time for my birthday!

Did your dealer have available production allotments at the time you ordered? If so, you should be hearing something by now - I would call the dealer and ask about the order status. If your dealer was out of allotments for a while, you could be getting a maybe late May or June build date, in which case, your order may not have moved much. I would call and check.

My dealer told me that my X3 M-Sport was build last week. He already gave me my VIN number but told me the car will be delivered only in mid-May .
Is it normal to wait one month from build to delivering ?

depends where your dealer is and what all they are waiting for.

I think they all come into bmw canada in toronto then get sent out; might be a case of them waiting for enough vehicles (not just x3) to fill a truck for your dealer.

I know its 12 days from south carolina to the distribution center but a bit more from there to you.
