Press Release: First Special Parts for the New BMW X3: AC Schnitzer Wheels and Interior Accessories.

The introduction of the 2nd edition of the BMW X3 is more than just an update of an “old” model, because the new X3 has clearly more to offer than its predecessor. In fact it’s really in a class of its own. Everything is new, better, bigger and more beautiful.

We’re delighted to welcome the latest addition to the BMW family, and – punctually for the official launch – we can already offer a wealth of AC Schnitzer wheel and tyre combinations and some further accessories.

Even the dimensions of the BMW X3 have grown perceptibly. As BMW put it: “Pleasure finds its form”, both outside and in the interior. But if you’re concerned that the larger vehicle dimensions have been obtained at the cost of looks and style, you’ll soon be reassured. All in all, the new BMW X3 has simply grown up.

At the moment, the engine range comprises the familiar petrol units, the xDrive28i and xDrive35i, and the diesel, the xDrive20d. Of course we are working at full speed on a complete AC Schnitzer range for the new BMW X3 in all areas of the vehicle. We are planning performance upgrades, a sports rear silencer and tailpipe trims, optimised suspension and further accessories for the interior.

And although not the same company, they do share ties with Schnitzer Motorsport. But hey, they’ve only won a few races in their time including this years 24hrs at the Ring, so what do they know?

    American rappers got something new to buy.

  5. Ruslan-Kz says:

    Good rims. AC Schnitzer is the great tuninger. But they could’n make X3 nicer. Mission impossible.

  6. BIMMER1 says:

    I have to say, I wish they would have never changed their wheels. The old wheel styles were much more tasteful.
