Thoughts on this build?

I've flip-flopped a million times, but I think I've landed on the following build for my X3Mc. Curious on your thoughts?

Carbon Black
Black Calipers
Beige Alcantara seats
CF interior trim
Shadowline lights

Solid. With the fronts tinted this will be stealthy. Very menacing!

I think BSM suites the X3M more than Carbon. The rest is all good.

Carbon Black has a slight bluish tinge in the sun so if you like that then Carbon Black is solid. Shadowline will be killer on the dark car. Personally I would get colored calipers for a more sporty look (although black won't show the brake dust as much!). CF interior trim is a must!

I ordered almost the same spec x4- CB with tartufo and red calipers. Was between that and MBB. It's in transit now. Will post pics once I have it.

Yea I would prefer the pop of a colored caliper myself.

Red really jumps out but blue is a lot more subtle.

I had no Sunroof on my 2021 X3MC and have it now on the 2022. I personally wish I deleted it but regarding resale most people want it so that's why I did not delete jt

I'd go with red calibers and Tartufo or black interior. The tan/black just never did it for me in these cars.

Agreed - I just ordered Carbon black with Tartufo interior and red calipers. Looks like a Week 25 build. I think the dark colors need an interesting interior color, and the red calipers are a great contrast.

I'll hopefully take possession by Friday. In the mean time, here's a shot of the calipers. Nice contrast with the cb

Love it. The beige seats are very underrated IMO, especially on darker colors.
