You can already order the X3M CF grill via IND and I'm trying to figure out if the CF mirror caps for other M models will fit on this one.

If you guys are ever in the Orlando area, send me a message! I've yet to see another X3M driving around... would be great to get some pics together!

I'm in the Treasure Coast area, thus between you and SWOT1. We should all meet at the PBIR to have some runs and fun.

Hopefully no more than 3-4 weeks away from my RIS... she's ready to go WOT!

Enjoy it! I was about to upgrade from a 2017 X3 35i which I loved driving, I was going to go with the new X3M competition but at the last minute switched over to a Range Rover Sport V8. Even though I prefer the looks of the RR, it's 517bhp 5 liter V8 engine still does 0-60 a whole second slower than the X3M and i think about that every night before I lay my head down to sleep.

More comfortable ? Thatís surprising
