2013 AW X3 35I - M-Pkg



Got rid of my E46 and bought this beaut...
Loving it so far, it's damn quick and handles lovely.

Love the chestnut interior as well. Comes with all options minus heated steering wheel and rear seats.

Will be doing the grills matte black with plasti dip soon (and potentially the lip on the front bumper in black as well)

Ordered the X3 badge in gloss black currently.

Every Joe with a 3 series has those lol. Just take a look at BMW True North, I'm sure you'll find plenty of them. Bonus M Striped kidneys and more M badges than cylinders, too.

As for the lip portion, that may look cool. Photoshop it?

Guess I have been out of the loop - I like it because its subtle, not something that always shows, and i don't care to add any other M stuff like that anywhere else.

I'm looking to get a color matched alpine white license plate holder as well.

Here is how it would look with the lip... I only saw one person online having it (he did his mirrors too but i don't like the black mirrors IMO)

I'll probably get the orange deleted as well

Small upgrade...

I have a titanium trim so it doesn't stand out as much as it would on a gloss black for example.
