Dynamic Comfort package is indeed available with the m-sport.

below is the quote confirming the packages.
You need to cross out the HST amount as well. It's not hard to get the discount amount by looking at HST amount ;p

2013 X3 28i  [0.00]
3m rock guard is Clear Armor?

Trying to decide on paint protection and how much to cover. Clear Armor is the product name used here in Anchorage. Lot of posititive comments from locals but I'm still not sold on the idea of a plastic coating on my new Jet Black 28i due in the end of this May. And if so how much is enough? front bumper, front part of hood, entire hood, why not the entire car.

And will this stuff wax up to a deep shine. Use dealers over priced or go directly to detailer who installs for the dealer?

Waiting is just time to worry about these kinds of issues. My X3 in on the west coast and should be on its way north soon.

Thanks guys.

I was attacked by a swarm of butterflies on the drive home so I have to scrub off the bug juices before I upload some more pics...

... well maybe just one more.

I should have picked a different angle to avoid the neighbour's SAV.

Finally lbjgh ..I'm sure you're happy it arrived. Looking good

Your neighbor's SAV would definitely have worse mpg than your X3

Everything was great with the delivery except a few small bubbles under the 3m bra... it looks like there may be some dirt between the painted surface and 3m. If you've ever applied a screen protector on an electronic tablet you'll know what I mean. I'll have to schedule an appointment to have new 3m installed.

hmm donno about fuel economy... his SAV is a diesel.

There is a very slight delay from when the gas pedal is pressed but not enough to be warrant disabling the feature. It is especially useful in conjuction with the auto hold at long signalized intersections.

I've found that the ecopro is the least envasive when used with the cruise control. ecopro is useless in heavy traffic.

There was a little crud on the plastic trim piece between the hvac and nav screen so I used some turtle wax (ice) to buff it out. I got a bit of wax on the nav screen and proceeded to make a hell of a mess on the screen. I had a microfibre towel to clean up the wax but I guess there was wax residue on the towel that got smeared all over the damn screen. Bloody hell, the car was only a few hours old and I thought I screwed up the screen! ahhhh. Anyway my wife had a great idea and had a small chamois for her eyeglasses which cleaned up the wax residue without any damage... sheesh.

The car has been great fun... the delivery guy at the dealership said not to worry about babying the car for a break-in period. So I'm taking his advise. Not beating the car but I ain't "Driving Miss Daisey" either.

I drove the Kia, the Hyundai and everything else. I am still pleased with my purchase. After 5000 miles, I am almost willing to say, I won't buy anything but a BMW from now on, but it's still early. Congrats on the new whip.

Does any one has this noise issue while driving the car?

I thought it was the cold engine issue, but after 2 weeks driving, the noise is not going away!

http://x3.xbimmers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=687635

Suggestion, anyone?

Sorry, lbjgh, I kind of missed you getting yours. Belated congrats, it does look great and I know you will be ditching the free dealer advert on the rear plate frame...!!!

Good score on the personalized ON plate.
