I agree with Jason! this looks great! the X3 has grown on me a lot, and this matte white really compliments the design. nice work!

Wow looks really awesome.
As an Apline White fan, I think BMW should offer Matte Alpine White Non-metallic as an option.

Absolute stunning! I prefer the look of this one to the M sport AW in the paris motor show pictures

Now the question: Does your X3 on vinyl come with a CD player?!

I agree, matte white looks great! On that subject, I wish BMW would offer a Mineral White Metallic option too, like on the M3...that's also a gorgeous color.

Fascinating! The labor alone must have cost a fortune. Very well done. I assume this was all custom cut for the vehicle, etc.?

Thanks guys, appreciate all the positive comments!

Yes, it is all custom fitted in the vehicle, so fairly expensive. Appr. 2-3.000 USD, depending on where you have it made. Well worth it, considering it makes the car stand out in a nice yet subtle manner.

And, yes, it's a leasing car that my company leases for me.

Thanks! I actually contemplated doing the mirrors matte black, same as rails and grille, but decided I wanted a more "stock" look. Also decided against doing the lower white section of the front bumper, for the same reason.

Thanks, now that's a compliment!

No, no CD player. But for some reason there now seems to be a speed limiter @ 45 mph. Go figure...

It spends most of it's time in and around town, so chances are you'll spot it...

I got a chance to do a side by side comparison of an Alpine White and mine the other day. Actually didn't think the difference would be that big...

Thanks! It does indeed look much more bright white than the stock Alpine White.
