X3M, X4M debut in Shanghai

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com

Starts at 9:57. Not much to see unfortunately as it is overshadowed by 3 series long wheelbase for China.

Toronto red over white might be really great. Otherwise yeah I'd probably go black. The gray interior is very ho hum. I want to see Donington over Tartufo.

Donington over Tartufo is what I'm waiting to see also! I'm thinking it should be a classy combo.

for my own point of view, as I saw the X3M in black and the X4M in donington. The black colour kills all M details of the car, where Donington grey make all details stands out. I saw as well the Grey interior, it was better as in the pictures we can see. However I stand for Sophisto/Tartufo.

Both X3M and X4M are getting a lot of attention for many good reasons. I cannot wait to schedule a test drive appointment.

Besides the quad tailpipes, this thing could pass for a LCI refresh of the M40i. It doesn’t look aggressive enough, the narrow stance is terrible.

Would look good - but they've never had special fenders for the X5M. They did, however, always have a unique bumper/classically centered quad exhaust. The visual effect of which was (IMHO) to make the rear seem wider by virtue of a smaller rear bumper.

Even for LCI model vs intro model, if you look under big-nerdy glasses would be different too

But in generally speaking put M240i vs M2 next to each other, no need eye glasses to tell the diff
put 340i vs M3 , no glasses either needed here

No question, X3M and X4M will sell since SAV/x-over is hot market right now. I doubt there will be waiting list ala M3/M2 at the intro.
