BMW X3 M Competition new car arrival.

18 weeks to the day after the order was placed my BMW X3 M Competition is finally here!

We sold my wife’s mondeo in favour of a very nice daily which could be used as a family car. The brief was we had to find something that we could have a child in the back, load camping gear in and if possible a tow bar for the purpose of a bike rack.

I’d been looking at all sorts, BMW X3’s, 3 series, Audi Q5’s, A4, A5, Merc GLA, Tesla model 3, Focus RS, Civic Type R, Golf R but then my Dad bought an X3 M Comp and I fell for it. It took a long time to save the pennies but we did it and then had to wait 18 weeks for delivery which seemed like forever.

The car is Donnington Grey with Shakir Orange interior, ultimate pack with a hidden electric tow bar.

It’s booked in for Ceramic coating in January as it’s the earliest I could get it in at my chosen detailer so in the meantime has had a wash and decon, topped with SRP and Vonnix Blend Wax.

Agree with the above - the seats look awesome against the paint, lovely contrast. Very nice car indeed.

Thanks. It was a bold choice and the closer it got to the delivery the more I worried that it wouldn’t work. Loads of people have commented on them over the last week. I’m well chuffed with them.

Beautiful car Chris.

We have the M40i which is a bit of a beast but that tool is full on beast mode.

I like the fact that, unless you see the badges, they are a nice 'sleeper' car. Ours was already debadged on the rear but surprises some nice cars if needed.

Needs more internal pics though pal to show off that beaut interior.
