Looks like it won't have the new white LED-Corona's:t-hands:. Or what do you think? (Scott?)
The answer seems to be yes...and no.
This first photo shows the car with the new blue-ish corona rings, but the second shot shows it with the older yellow rings. Could be that the old yellow-ish rings are for the base model, and the new LED tech' blue-tone corona rings are for the upper-range models.
well, it could be, the one without them seems to have unpainted bumpers ( but that could be tape, hard to tell ) supporting that theory) Nothing wrong with that. done throughout the industry.
I think you are wrong, the grey x3 is a base model, and the red one is top model. Look at the front grill, Grey has it black, and the red has is chromed. Chrome grill is usually reserved to top engine of the serie/range model. So I will bet on:
- Either it is a bad angle of the camera (seems that some people have already reported that camera can't take proprely the new corona in pictures)
- Either the red one don't have xenon and in this configuration Corona are same as the old ones (yellowish).
You are correct.
It's most likely it's the same situation as the E92. LED corona rings are an option on every model.
Funny how the 245/50 18" wheels look small on the Red X3. :eusa_thin
When camouflage unveiling is done well and certain parts of the detailing is slowly revealed it can boost interest in the car and sway some people from their original decision of buying another brand, but in this case I feel that not enough of the important detailing in it's design has been revealed to allow the 'photoshop' experts to do their thing.
I know this opinion isn't correct but with the camo on the car I for the most part see another X3 just like the last one, which doesn't fill me with excitement.
The one silver lining this time round is the offering of adaptive suspension, the last X3 was a great handling car but never had the ride of the competition which with the most recent offerings from both Audi and Mercedes really did make it feel old in this way, especially since both these models handled even better. Hopefully now we have a small SUV that not only corner extremely well but rides well too. A bonus in my eyes.
Side by side with X6:
that's the hybrid X6, coincidence or hybrid X3?
Those pics are made by Paybay and are already posted in post number 920
I've seen them today and I thought they are new and haven't been posted here yet... sorry for repost :t-cheers:
Nope, thanks! Very interesting, as we've seen virtually nothing of the interior yet.
Looks like the car will feature a mix of E90 and F10 design. I'm actually a bit disappointed by the E90 parts.
