Sunstone X3M

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
It appears a bit of an unloved colour here but took a quick 'snap' of my week old Sunstone X3M....

A few more pics for anyone interested. Not the best quality (just from my phone) but not many photos out there so thought I'd post.

Oh wow that is nice. I think the color is gorgeous but was too afraid to order one in it.

Too bronze for me. The lighter colours look great against the black trim.

Enjoy

It is a lovely colour!

In fact, all the X3M range have great colours (except black - IMO obviously!)

Is that a JC Aberdeen car? I heard they sold 15 and they seem to have some more in.

Very nice, I think it's a great colour.

It also worked very well on the X3 M40i with the cerium bits which have a bronze tint to them.

Yip, JC car. They did say they had been selling more X3Ms than anything else!

The deal on these cars is amazing. My last 3 cars were BMs (325i, M5, M3) so had decided to have a change and was almost committed in a Merc GLC AMG but that needed thousands deposit and 6.2% on finance! I wasn't even really that aware of the X3 M but couldn't resist the deal when I saw it - also got 4k more for my M3 than any GLC/F-Pace/Macan deals.

I actually like the color, it works on the X3 ad X5 (my cousin has a X5 M50d in Sunstone and it looked really good in person).

Not an SAV person but I've gotta say that the X3M is the nicest of the bunch. I like the color, plus it'll be a breeze to maintain. Good luck, fine choice.

Problem with this color is that it cannot be combined with chrome accents. This way with black details looks perfect and very sporty

Silver and gold do not clash .. unless it's a personal issue.

Search cashmere silver or BMW.. you'll find chrome accents with it from 1982 to 2019

Search on this color sunstone and you will see most of the time it's matched with a chrome grille and looks classy. The 2019 BMW X5 looks great in this combo
