Has anyone bought a new X3 in glacier silver? I would love to see the pictures as I'm considering ordering one.

I haven't seen an x3 in glacier but I have seen an x4 in it.

It looked good and next to a titanium silver 3 series it looked a stronger colour and not washed out as the titanium could appear in some light's

I currently have an x3 on order in glacier

Yes, I got a 2015 X5 3.5 in Glacier Silver/Oyster. Really like the color combo. Was all set to get Space Gray which I've always liked, but when I saw the GS in person I quickly changed my mind. I really liked the color as why it is similar to the Titanium, it is a bit more dynamic of a color as it looks different in different lights. Sometimes more whitish, sometimes with a hint of blue etc. Plus it hides the dust/dirt much better and was much cooler to the touch than the SG (an important point living in AZ).

I don't sorry no ... But the x4 is a Bowker demo at Blackburn ... They may send you a video/stills of it .. Next time I'm passing I'll stop by and see if it's there and if I can get a pic

Not the best, but enclosed a few.

The Phoenix area. You can still get the 309's - just not with the xLine or Sport packages.

Wow, you got me wondering now if I should change my order. Red looked better in configurator, but this silver looks better in real life.

You'll regret it - black is an absolute swine to keep clean and looking good! I should know - I've had a black car for the last two and a half years, but not for much longer thank goodness - my white X3 2.0 Msport should finally be here next week at long last. Whoopee!

I recommend silver for x3, it's a smaller SUV and black will really shrink it down a size and hides its beautiful lines.

X3 is sexy in light color. Silver looks amazing.

Picked ours up about 2 weeks ago. Couldn't decide between the Glacier Silver or Space grey. So glad we went for the Silver - love it!

Ha!

Honestly Black is the one color I would never consider. Looks nice but is a pain in the butt to keep clean and living in a desert gets way too hot. Don't feel like burning my hands every time I open or close the doors!
