To learn more about the features of this new aerodynamic package, BMW provided the description below:
“Alongside the new BMW X3, the 2010 Paris Motor Show also sees the world debut of the M Sports package developed for the new edition of this Sports Activity Vehicle. A model-specific option from BMW M GmbH, it is scheduled to launch in the second quarter of 2011 and comprises attractive chassis, aerodynamics, exterior and interior components that allow for further optimisation of the exceptional dynamics of the new BMW X3 as well as lending them a visually striking look.
The range of features includes the M aerodynamics package, chromed exhaust tailpipes and BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line for the side window surrounds and roof railing. The front, side and rear body components of the M aerodynamics package come in body colour, and the inlay in the rear apron is painted in Dark Shadow metallic. Sports suspension tuning and 18-inch M light-alloy wheels, along with Performance Control for the standard-fitted xDrive all-wheel-drive system, boost the dynamic potential of the Sports Activity Vehicle.
In the new BMW X3 xDrive35i they are complemented by a sports automatic transmission featuring steering wheel shift paddles and variable sports steering including Servotronic.
As an option, 19-inch M light-alloy wheels are also available with differently sized front and rear tyres, while the accessories range also offers 20-inch M light-alloy wheels with different front and rear tyres.
Sports seats in a cloth/leather combination, an M leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons including cruise control, door entry sills with the M logo and an M driver’s footrest contribute to enhanced driving pleasure in the interior of the new BMW X3 with the M Sports package. This premium sporting ambience is rounded off by the BMW Individual roof liner in Anthracite, interior trim in Fine Brushed Aluminium, an M gear lever knob (only for the BMW X3 xDrive20d with manual gearbox) and a stainless steel inlay inthe luggage compartment loading sill.”
