All Preventative Maintenance Complied With
This is the X3 you have been looking for. It has all of the right packages and options, most importantly the M Sport Package. I am selling it on consignment for the brother of a BMW master technician. He has always serviced it regularly, completing all required and preventative maintenance. Mechanically it is perfect. BMW’s are like airplanes: Age and mileage are important, but proper care and maintenance are what make them last forever. Buying one from an owner that understands this and is willing to invest in proper care is the most important element in any used BMW purchase. This X3 has benefitted from impeccable stewardship, and it shows. In addition to a complete Inspection II service, it has had preventative measures such as the water pump, valve cover gasket, oil filter housing gasket, and many other items replaced. Cosmetically it is in astonishing condition inside and out. It has always lived indoors and been driven sparingly in poor weather. I sell a lot of BMW’s and am always searching for clean ones. I’ve seen cars with half the age and mileage that don’t come close to the condition of this X3.
The 2007 X3 was the second year of the E83’s life cycle impulse – BWM speak for facelift. It was an important year for the X3 for several reasons. 2007 was the first year the X3 came with the N52 engine. The N52B30 engine produced 268-horsepower and 232 ft/lb of torque, a 40 horsepower improvement over its predecessor with improved low-end torque delivery. The N52 was mated to a new 6-speed automatic gearbox that improved gas mileage and had significantly quicker shifting. 2007 also got an M Sport Package, which only lasted two years before being replaced by the Sport Limited Edition package in 2009. As an M car owner I was unnerved when I first heard that the X3 was being offered with an M Sport Package, but in the world of BMW everything touched by the letter M is better. The X3 is no exception. In fact, the M Sport Package probably transforms the X3 more than any other model setting it apart from its mundane competitors in the mid-size crossover SUV segment. In journalist’s comparisons an M Sport Packaged X3 drove circles around its Mercedes and Lexus competitors. One journalist went so far as to call the Lexus’s poor manners dangerous in comparison!
The M Sport bits simply give you the tools to drive it like a BMW should be driven. A firmer suspension is complimented by a thick rimmed, leather wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel, and bolstered sport seats. This is further aided by the servotronic variable steering. 18-inch Style 192 M Double Spoke wheels, an M Aerodynamics Package, and Shadowline trim complete the look. Adaptive bi-xenon headlights that turn with the steering wheel put light intuitively where you want it. It’s almost like you are moving light with your eyes! Auto dimming (BMW calls it anti-dazzle!) review mirrors prevent light from getting where you don’t want it. Heated front and rear seats take the edge off of cold mornings. The panoramic sunroof lets you see the sunrise in its entirety – every car should have one. The product of these options is an X3 that doesn’t compromise sporting driving dynamics for utility.
No expense has been spared on the mechanical pedigree of this X3. BMW Service Interval Inspection II was completed less than 2000 miles ago including many preventative measures. The seller’s brother, a Master BMW Technician, performed all of the work using only OEM parts. Here is a list of what was replaced in addition to the inspection.
The result is a mechanically flawless X3. The N52 engine does not suffer the direct injection carbon build up or high pressure fuel pump issues that the N54 engine of this generation does. It idles smoothly and pulls very strongly. There are no leaks or fluid seeps. The 6-speed automatic transmission shifts quickly and smoothly. The xDrive AWD works perfectly. There are no driveline, flex disc, or CV axle vibrations. The brakes work perfectly. The servotronic steering is fantastic and the alignment is spot on. The Falken Ziex ZE612 tires are worn evenly and have over 75% tread remaining. It is ready for another 100K miles of German motoring!
The Titanium Silver Metallic paint is in exceptional condition. Silver does a fantastic job of preserving its clarity while minimizing blemishes. A close examination reveals very few imperfections, dings, or rock chips. The worst is a scuff on the rear bumper cover (see pictures). The front bumper cover and lower hood are free of the rock chips that scar vehicles exposed to Colorado winters. This X3 has always lived indoors and it shows. The glass is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. The wheels have no curb rash, chips, or bends. The headlight glass is not cloudy, the HALO angle eyes have no gaps, and the LED taillights are a striking design element. Overall the exterior presents like an X3 with a fraction of the miles that it actually has.
The Nevada Leather over Sand Beige interior is in consistently amazing condition. Under the outside light of the panoramic sunroof, sand beige adds a light and airy feel to the interior. The light poplar wood trim accents the sand beige wonderfully. The black leather M 3-spoke steering wheel is all business. The leather is still soft to the touch with no blemishes. All functions, accessories, and options work correctly. The heat blows hot, the air condition blows cold, the front and rear heated seats work. The navigation system has been updated with 2015 data. The onboard computer shows all vehicle functions. The Harmon Kardon premium stereo system sounds amazing. The panoramic sunroof opens smoothly. There are no blown out pixels in the instrument cluster, HVAC panel, or display screen. The carpet has no stains, rips, or tears. Custom Weather Tech floor mats and a BMW cargo protector have protected it. There are no odors and it has never been smoked in. The only imperfections I could find are light peeling in the plastic finish of commonly touched areas. The worse are the window switches, steering wheel spoke, and center console.
