Latest X3M and X4M Pics from Houston with Sakhir Orange interior

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Here are some photos of the X3MC and X4MC from when they were making the rounds at dealerships in Houston a few weeks back.

My impression was that they were beautiful, felt luxurious and comfortable to sit in, however I found the Sensa-Tec dash and door panel tops, out of place and am disappointed that extended/full leather options are not available.

I also felt in person that I wanted them to be more distinct from standard X3 & X4's. The black quad tailpipes blending in with the black rear end also is a missed opportunity to help distinguish these cars.

I really would love to have an X3MC, but I think I want to see what next year holds...

Thanks for the post. Just from the pics I feel you on the dash. Should have full leather option.

not a fan of that X3/4 M Competition badge on the center console. The red interior looks really good.

Agree. I think thatís because the badging is super busy. Even outside badging starts to look like mush. Maybe leave competition text in chrome or make it X3///Mc. Donít know. Overall I like the car.

BMW NA reserves the full leather option for the F95/F96, otherwise could canabilize sales.

Man that SO interior. Looks so nice. It's like allot of what you guys are saying, I don't see the big difference from the M40i to the M version. Sucks.

Yeah, the Sensa-Tec dash/door panels are let down across the line, much less a genuine ///M version.

Am I the only one that really likes it for the price? I wish it was a v8 but this should still be an awesome daily to keep the miles down on the other M toys. I plan on getting mine in black, red guts, lowering it and adding an exhaust + tune for fun.

Those seatbacks are just crying out for some matching exterior paint or better yet some carbon fiber.

But then again they offer full leather for the M3 and are not afraid of canibalizing the M5.

The 3 series and 4 series have had leather dash available as an option. I agree, it doesn't make sense.
