This is kind of a disappointment. The photos look great but in this video this doesn't strike me as an "M" car from the outside. Seems more like a X3 that someone has added badges to. The inside also doesn't look like a $70k+ car.

It will be very hard to tell the difference if both X3M and X3 M40i are rebadged. Not too sure if that's a good thing.

Agreed. Nearly +$20kCAD over a loaded m40i at MSRP.

Mind you, ~500HP...would be fun!

Do the Canadian cars have the spare tire as an option? That's great, the spare tire is not available on the US configurator.

STD in the US, but can be replaced by the mobility kit at no charge

Should have wide body fender flares in the back and front as well as wider tires on all fours. Needs hood bulge and M mirrors made of carbon fiber.

Like I said, not aggressive enough.
Minus that badge, it looks like M sport to me.

+1 Fender lip flares and wider tires would have made a world of difference.
