AC Schnitzer has taken the wraps off of its BMW X3 customization program, featuring both cosmetic and performance enhancements.

The X3 xDrive20d has been bumped from its standard 184hp to 218hp. A power upgrade for the xDrive30d, 28i, and 35i are also in the works and will be released later this year.

As for cosmetic enhancements, the AC Schnitzer X3 kit features front lip spoiler with integrated splitters, chrome trim for the side skirts, a rear diffuser bumper, rear roof spoiler and exhaust tail pipes.

Good stuff. Any speculation yet on the HP boost for the 35i?

Black Sapphire was probably the best possible color to show off this kit.

For the first time in a long time, I can say that ACS has not completely butchered the car. Although, other than the wheels, I am having a hard time figuring out what all they really did.

Looks like they applied their modifications to the Sport package with some M-Sport package elements included. It does look cool.

First kit of theirs that I like. Nice personality adjustment for the X3.

+1 on the safest color pick -Black Sapphire Metallic

I like some of the ACS styling. They did good on the E39 mods and E90 mods. But to each his own. I like it. I see a lot of posts that are not in favor of it.

Like the front bumper w/splitters, don't see the "rear diffuser bumper".

The roof spoiler looks like a tacky add-on that makes the upper part of the car look way too heavy, the AC-S wheels are "way-busy" and take attention away from the car's natural lines.

Do like the "siamiesed" exhaust tips.

Of course the (5) AC Schnitzer logos are ridiculous and turn the demo model into a rolling billboard. The word "subtle" is obviously not in AC -S's vocabulary!

Can’t imagine being that desperate for attention to install the whole package, but to “each his own”. It would help make the X3 feel at home with the local “tarted-up” Civics, Lancers, and STI’s.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Love the front of this. Looks a lot like the X5. The adjusted M Sport styling suits larger rims much better you need 20"+ IMO.

I think the mandatory yellow UK number plate would ruin the look on the back!

Not bad from ACS this time.
And the X3 looks very nice in real life.
The LED angel eyes looks amazing, even better than the ones on the F10.

Thanks, but have to maintain my image of "non-political correctness" If I was politically correct, I'd be driving a Chevy Volt.
