Took delivery!

Well my wife and I were able to take delivery of our new X3 last night! The build was fast (it was just built about a week ago) and all went well. After finishing all the paperwork we went through a lot of the details of the vehicle with our salesman and then took her home for the first time! We don't have any kids, but I can only imagine that having one must be similar to this after ordering a custom build and taking delivery LOL!
So far the items that I am pleasantly and happily surprised with are: the 18" M sport wheels for the 28i (they look great in person), the nevada chestnut interior leather (stunning color!), the overal build quality and quality of parts used (this vehicle definitely has an exquisite feel to it, right up there with my Porsche).
LOVE this X3 so far and am greatly anticipating learning all the features and the ownership experience, this is going to be a fun one!
Pictures will be up soon!

Thanks!

First time I've heard of VSS; that's an option I'm guessing?

Very nice

That's almost exactly my combinations except that I have silver window surrounds and roof rails.

Glad to hear that the 18'' inch wheels are nice as there were so many negative comments on them.

Do the colour of the seats look darker in real ? Seems a bit bright in the pictures.

Mind is a Msport 20D in UK, I also have a Boxster.

The seats aren't that bright in persn, the camera flash brightens the nevada chestnut some I think.
So I see you'll have the nice X3 Msport and Porsche 987 combo as well, congrats! ;-)
