I chose the same combination (sapphire black, sand beige leather, wave wood trim) on my X3.

Congratulations and enjoy it!

Looks great. I love to see how different option combinations look. I have sand beige and wave wood with the Sport Activity package on its way.

As a separate note: Why are the radiator supports painted black? Shouldn't they be silver? Or maybe the radiator should be black? Has anyone painted the supports so they blend in better?

Quick question: Do they have rubber floor mats that better match the beige interior or are the dark rubber mats all BMW offers? Just curious since I will be going for the all-weather rubber mats.

Very nice!

You're getting me excited about picking up my 28i at Performance Center this week! I've got sand beige/sparkling bronze. The beige looks great with the wave wood.

What part of NJ are you from? Maybe I'll see you on the road. (I'm in Union County.)

Chrome cup holders are an insert in the cup holders. They were in my car as well yesterday when I collected mine. Dealer said that they have been arriving with then already there from the production plant for the last week or so. I recall a similar discussion on here as well last week with the same confirmation. I'll take a picture of mine later.

You're right that the Anthracite color is the only color BMW offers. I also agree that it does not look bad at all with the sand beige. The anthracite color exactly matches the color of the steering wheel and dash, so it works.

I have been looking online at other options (weathertech, cocomats, lloyd, hexomat, etc), and the OEM ones seem to me to be the way to go.

Any other opinions and options are of course appreciated.

Nice ride.

I'm unsure of the color i will get inside the car. i choose beige also, but will it be 2 tones with black carpets and doors or all beige like yours? i didnt see any way to choose different tones inside the cars in the car builder.

The sand beige interior is all beige. No two-tone combination of beige/black is offered by BMW in the X3.

The BMW OEM all-weather rubber mats only come in one color (anthracite) and do offer a bit of contrast with the sand beige.
