Cheers Dan. Yeah it looks quite good and really doesn't look that much smaller than my X5 when parked together in the carport. Your 23d must be a rocket ship.

Gorgeous!

Did you order yours from factory, or find one from a dealer?
BTW, where are X1's built that land in Australia?

G'day im not 100% sure where it was built but im sure the dealer said it was leaving a port in Germany if that helps. I ordered this for my wife's birthday about 3 months ago so it took about 9 weeks to arrive.
the mud flaps blend in well will the black and flat grey bumpers and skirts so it was a must have for me as i hate dealing with stone chips.

Nice car man,

just out of curiosity: the botom is usualy painted in silver, how come yours is black? This is how it come, special order, or you painted them later?

That is because of the "Sport Line" option, Standard is with silver and X-line ads the side skirts in silver I think.

that's correct. Sport Line in every colour has black inserts on the side skirts and front & rear bumper. That is one of the reasons i ordered black so it all matched.

I have been contemplating whether to keep my order or cancel due to the small size of the car. Can you take another shot standing closer to the X5 and another one from the middle if you have time? Thanks!

I'm not sure what your after but here is another directly from behind. It certainly does not have the room of the X5 and is slightly smaller than the X3 but boot space and leg room is fine for my family of three and im 6ft. It was a big step up from my wifes 118d hatch which had no room at all.

Really like your Sport Line. Finishing touch would be to black out the muffler with some high heat black spray paint?

Thanks Scott for the photoshop job on the black exhaust. I've been wondering about that ever since I've seen the 28i, and I think the black paint would do a nice job hiding the muffler there a bit.

Does anyone know if these Sportline rims are the same ones that we'd get in the US? It looks different than the sportline wheels I've seen, and I like them.

76Gas - Did the wheels come in dark silver or does it already have a coating of brake dust already? I like these wheels

Nice car but has anyone told you your steering wheel is on the wrong side? Love those wheels.

Have seen a lot of different OEM rims and have to say I think yours are far and away the best looking of all those currently offered. Wanted those rims, but could not specify them with the MSport package.
