Where did you get the idea that they were "screwed together"? BMW actually uses string and sealing wax to assemble the X3.

Congratulations. I placed an order this past weekend and was told delivery in early March. Sounds like you have a great vehicle I wish we had diesels in Canada.

Looks good. I am not a big fan of the MSport "look", but in black it looks great.

The fact that your car was built after mine but has now arrived prompted me to mail my dealer. I know that yours is a 35d and mine is only a 30d but the performance gap is not that big especially across the Atlantic.

Good news! The dealer says mine will arrive to them very shortly. Now just the wait for them to sort it out and to agree with the lease company (mine is a company car) when they will be happy to do the swap.

Enjoy your new toy!
