2022 BMW X3MC - Individual - British Racing Green (312)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Since the car market has been absolutely crazy, and for the first time it's been pretty much seller's market. I decided to sell my 2020 BMW X3MC in Alpine White (leased with equity) for a 2022 BMW X3MC in an individual color, my buddy over at Bridgewater BMW, Jon Del Franco helped make it happen. Also thanks to Vito at BMW NA!

I loved everything about the 2020 but the horrible oem suspension! Remedied that with a set of KW V3's!







The new car's options below:

Exterior color - British Racing Green (312)
Interior - tartufo
Carbon Fiber Trim
Executive Package
Front Ventilated Seats
M Brakes in Black
Competition Package with 892M wheels
M Sport Seats

Here are some shots, better photos to come

Pick up at Bridgewater BMW








Wrapped with some scrap Xpel PPF we had at the shop for the ride home. We wrapped the high impact areas. So cold that I could only hope that it would make it back home without flying off.







Got the car back to the shop.

Next step
  • remove the factory wrap
  • remove wheels to clean
  • clean caliper and prep for ceramic coating
  • ceramic coat wheels
  • ceramic coat brake calipers
  • ceramic coat KW V3
  • install KW V3's
  • install Future Classic 12MM Spacers

Notice the paint is really flat on the rockers, let's see if we can fix that during the light paint correction work.

Cleaning wheels with Nanolex Wheel Cleaner and Iron Remover, followed by prepping the wheels with Fictech Paddock to prep for Nanolex Si3D HD Ceramic Coating - same process for coating the brake calipers

More of our new car prep
  • Remove Door Handles, Emblems, Grills, Fender Gills, Taillights, Window Trim, and Mirrors for a clean PPF installation
  • Inspect paint for defects
  • Correction if needed
  • Polish out Glass
  • Ceramic Coat Glass

Paint inspection was going well till the front end ... holograms on the front bumper, and unfortunately due to the PPF not holding up during the drive home the film was flapping around and caused some damage as well, marring from salt and adhesive from the film.

Well sir, you have the individual color and interior combo I was too impatient and indecisive to commit to over my MBB/Tartufo.

Congratulations, its a stunner. Cant wait to see more photos of it once you get it out and about

That's the exact combo I'm planning to order for an M3C (or maybe X3MC). This just further cements it.

I had the Tartufu in my Alpine White and loved it, looks great in the BRG, wish there was a darker interior like Cohiba.
