Anyone have any pictures of their X3 with the new 599m wheels?

These new wheels are awesome looking! 21" offset 325 rears and 285 fronts

I think the dimensions are for the X5 version of 599m wheel.

This is copied from the X3 PDF catalogue:
21" BMW M Performance light alloy wheels Double-spoke style 599M, forged, in Bicolor matt Black, burnished on the visible sides, with four-colour M Logo and mixed tyres. Front: 8,5 J x 21 with 245/35 R 21 tyres. Rear: 10 J x 21 with 275/35 R 21 tyres.

The same goes for the 310m wheel. There is one version for X3 and one version for X5.

Also according to BMW 245 front and 275 back is recommended maximum for x3.

Thank you for the insight!!!! Great looking weeks. I was hoping for a larger profiles but makes sense!

Anytime!

Yes they look really nice! As with all bigger wheels I'm sure they look even better IRL.

How much do these steamrollers weigh? Your roads must be a lot smoother than Belgian ones, 18" is a perfect compromise here.

X4 is amazing chose it over the Macan, I will be posting my 1000km review hopefully by the weekend in the X4 forum.
Check out my X4 Macan crosshopping thread here that has elicited some heated debates in the Macan forum -->> http://x3.xbimmers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1038394

Btw handling of X4 is way better than X3 even without VDC and comfy too.

You have intrigued me about the X4. I have not considered it. Was thinking it was like X3. I'm going to check out. So you really like it over Macan. Very interesting!

Make sure the X4 is compared with an LCI X3. I'm not saying they'll be equal but the LCI has benefited from improvements vs the pre-LCI.

The BMW figures suggest so but have they changed engine and gearbox mappings or is this marketing? It's not clear.

Interior is updated, idrive is newer, surround cameras are so awesome, driver assist, sound proofing quiet like a mouse, more standard option, more expensive than X3. The LCI X3 similar interior, but different body and sound proofing.
Note if you want exhaust note get the 35i for the N20s are just too quiet --->>> http://x3.xbimmers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1050433

Did i mention it has more space than the Macan and longer than the X3?? However the Macan seats are just killer, plenty of video comparison on X4 forum.

On performance X4 quicker than any X3 by a few milli seconds as per the brochure, must be due to aerodynamics., there are also various aftermarket tunes if that's your cup of tea.The X4 M40i will be Macan turbo fast if not faster

Got to your local dealer and see if you like it especially the shape, see both Msport (which I feel BMW made car ugly) and Xline and decide for yourself. X4 not for everyone
