My xD20d, Sparking Bronze, Red/Brown, Alu

Didn't have time to take pics before it already had some dust on, but well, it's an outdoorsy sort of car ;-)

Great looking car. The more I see that colour interior, the more it grows on me. Congrats and hope you enjoy it.

I'm now moderately convinced that the sparkling bronze sort of colors is.... trending! I've noticed quite a few 13 plate cars, all size, with variations of that color. Varies from "brownish" to "gray brown" but most don't have the subtly metalic tinge I see in the BMW paint...

A rather dirty car, in the sunset...

I've been pondering getting a set of 18", but I'm not sure they will be great if I go offroad a bit... Any opinion?

Lovely looking car, love the interior/exterior colour combo.

What kind of off roading are you planning on doing?!

Nothing major, I think, rough stone/earth tracks and so on.. The x3 is actually pretty good from what I've seen, very nice traction, and the hill descent is also great!

For on road set up, some 18" will be better (sportier), but for the off road your actual set up is proper

I eventually reached that conclusion too.. so I might just buy another set of 17" for the winter!

Beside, the 17" are growing on me as a look, they look "chunkier" and more 4x4

Interesting point... Why are the controllers different?
