“Don’t be fooled, it’s just the Clark Kent of X3s, secretly wishing it was a superhero X3M.”
The car selection process was simple:
- Wanted an SUV
- Had to be a BMW
- No requirement for power (already have an M850 to play with..)
The options were basically the X3/4/5/6/7.
X7 was excluded right off the bat because it’s too ugly, those squinty headlights are unbearable. The new versions of the X5/6 are out, but the old ones didn’t have much discount. I didn’t want to wait and didn’t want to spend too much either, plus I felt like the X5/6 were too big, so they were excluded. The X3/4 were pretty much the same, but the X3 had a bigger discount of 9%, so I went with the X3. With a bunch of coupons I got from participating in previous BMW events, I got a discount of around 16%.
The price for a car in stock and one that is ordered is the same. Since I wasn’t in a rush to get a car, I went ahead and ordered one. Although power wasn’t a priority, the look had to be on point. So…
- Added the M Sport Package
- Added the Shadowline Package
- Added 20-inch M double-spoke bi-color wheels
Added some other comfortable features, and the MSRP went from $47,000 to $55,000…
The X3 is pretty much the car of the people now, so I won’t go into too much detail. The BMW interior, except for the hideous iDrive 8, is pretty much the same across all the ID7 models, so no need to show pictures.
