2011 BMW X3 M Sports Package

 For model year 2011 the new BMW X3 will be available with the M Sports package. Developed by BMW M GmbH specifically for this new Sports Activity Vehicle, the package comprises a range of high-end suspension, aerodynamics and exterior/interior components. Highlights include the M Aerodynamic package, special alloy wheels and interior styling features.

 The BMW X3 M Sports Package includes the M Aerodynamic package, chrome tailpipes and the BMW Individual High-Gloss Shadow Line trim for the side window surrounds and roof rails. The M Aerodynamic package includes body parts painted in body colour at the front, rear and side of the vehicle, while the panel in the rear apron is painted in Dark Shadow metallic.
Sports suspension calibration and 18-inch M alloy wheels, plus Performance Control as an add-on to the standard-specification xDrive all-wheel-drive system, all enhance the excellent driving dynamics of the Sports Activity Vehicle. On the new BMW X3 xDrive35i, they are joined by a Sports automatic transmission, steering wheel shift paddles and variable sports steering, including Servotronic. 19-inch M alloy wheels with mixed tyres are also available, while 20-inch M alloys with mixed tyres can be ordered from the accessories range.
Sports seats with exclusive Pearlpoint fabric/leather upholstery, an M leather-trimmed steering wheel with multifunction buttons including a Cruise Control button, door sills with the M logo and an M footrest for the driver all add to the driving pleasure in the new BMW X3 with M Sports package. The high-end sporty theme is capped off by a BMW Individual roof lining in anthracite, brushed aluminium interior trim, an M shift lever (only for the BMW X3 xDrive 20d with manual transmission) and a stainless steel insert in the loading sill.
The M Sports package will be available for all engine versions of the new BMW X3 from spring 2011. As an exclusive option in conjunction with the M Sports package, Carbon Black metallic paintwork can also be specified as an alternative to the standard paint finishes.
