    Swapped out of my grey Msport X3 this week into a Black Sapphire Xline 20d X3 :cool:

    :nopictures:

    Comments / opinions so far:
    • Xline trim works well on black, shame the wheel arches aren't painted
    • Standard steering wheel looks just as nice as sport steering wheel, but it's thinner to grip
    • The headlights have been updated, the corona rings aren't round anymore, more pointed
    • The dials have been updated, slightly better the way nav instructions pop up
    • The ride is softer round town
    • Bridgestone tyres on this one, not Michelin like the last car (can't comment how good they are yet)

    Looks great - I prefer the none painted wheels.

    Interesting to hear the ride is better. What size wheels are you running?

    Thank you, yes I've got a Nikon D3000

    19" again, but I've gone from M sport suspension to standard. I can't comment on it's open road handling yet, but it's more compliant around town
