No mention of DPC? Or do we have to wait for an M version like we did with the X5 M?

Everything looks great, except for headlights!

The headlights shape, form and contours look a lot like on Audi Q5! Why is that?

Aha, so my suspiscion was correct - the xDrive28i designation (vs. a would-be xDrive30i designation) that had been revealed previously did end up meaning that the car gets the 240hp N52 instead of the 260hp N52. I'm sure some folks will be bummed by that fact.

Are the tires runflats? What about in the M Sport package?

Am I correct in interpreting that the X328 has a stick, but the X335 only automatic?

Kind of makes me wish the in-laws hadn't just pulled the trigger on a 2010 GLK

Now if the X1 were available in North America with the 2L Diesel that would really be something

I like the look compared to our last 2 X3's, but still no diesel? There's 3 different diesels available in the UK; what's wrong with BMW US marketing??

I like the way it turned out - sort of blends the styling of the X5 and the X1, and in a nice way.
DO I hear Stage 2 X3 - humm 384 hp - could be a blast really... with 8 speed trans.. Dinan get on this.. mini X/M

I like that new design aspect and with many models going in that direction, this looks dated in that respect. IMO

I think the X1 is better looking.
are you serious? that cut on the hood of X1, new 5 is the ugliest thing ever

I think Audi now has something to be concerned about. Sure its derivative of the 1st gen design but I think its different enough to sway some new buyers and/or retain those who have leases maturing soon. Not bad IMHO.

Diesel? Will it be a 4 cyl or the 6cyl like what's in the X5? I would be happy with an X3 23D or a 35D.

+1.

M Sport Pack in Carbon Black, dark interior, and Stage 2 would absolutely rock this baby.


Any word on pricing?

On all these promo photos....where are the 2 front window tweeter speakers? all I see is a dead black space that is empty, is that because these photos have the base sound system.

The 3 series has the harmon kardon speakers in the door windows. It looks funny with dead plastic there instead like these photos. Does the current X3 offer this premium sound system with speakers there or not?
