Huge Camo Drop-Nearly Nude-F97 X3M

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Huge Camo Drop on the F97 X3M, which will debut the all-new S58 engine, which should also power the next generation M3 and M4.

Nearly Naked....Reveal must be right around the corner. BMW lately has tightened up the timeline of the Base Model Reveal/Production and the Full ''M" model. Stay tuned.....Thanks. Palbay

This would be awesome if production for the X3M begins sooner than the previously rumored first quarter 2019!!

Warranty ends on my wife's X5 Oct 2018 and looking at this as a replacement

From this angle it looks exactly like regular G01 except with quad exhaust.

It's quite subdued looking, as above no stand out features other than quad exhaust tips, wheels have no concave like the X5's, just looks a bit "meh"

Maybe the wheels aren't the actual production wheels for the X3M? e.g. these spy photos of current gen X5M didn't have the M mirrors but we know those eventually showed up on the real car. The tires seem a little thin for an M car too so maybe we'll see those change. I agree though - hoping that this car will look much more aggressive to distinguish it from X3 M40i

The exhaust outlets seem wider-set than in the past, helping to enhance the perception of width in the rear. I like it!

Feel like this is the one to beat right now. Macan needs a refresh https://media.mbusa.com/releases/rel...-glc63-s-coupe

Um... yeah that looks sweet. Hate the coupe, as with all the other coupe SUVs... but the standard saloon SUV (?) looks beefy!

BMW switched to the same Bosch unit that Porsche uses for their electrical steering system a couple of years ago. It comes down to individual tuning done by each manufacturer. The tuning on the GT3 was pretty damn amazing.

It's the right size. Always felt like the X5 was too big. But yeah, those tail light are straight up RAV4 lookalikes!

I doubt anything in this class and price range can kill macan. Also the next gen macan is going to be all electric they say. Looks like macan is there to lead the pack...
Regarding the x3 rear, looks good. Not everyone wants to deal with Porsche badge tax and BMW is always a good alternative

Why would they only offer the S version with the freakin coupe??? The decisions manufacturers make sometimes blow my mind ... smh

The GLC63 is looking way better than this X3M. I don't see how they could make the X3 more aggressive than the mercedes tbh.
