Starting today, BMW X3 customers will have unique access to the creation of their custom-made X3 vehicles via an online video portal that will show them footage of their customized X3 being produced at the company’s plant in Spartanburg, SC.
Customers can view the footage by creating a My BMW account on bmwusa.com and entering their X3 order number or VIN. Using seven cameras in BMW’s South Carolina plant, BMW deliver X3 customers with video that tracks their vehicle through the various stages of final assembly. The video does not have an expiration date, giving consumers round-the-clock access to the assembly footage, and the video can also be downloaded and shared with interested friends and family members.
Edmunds’ InsideLine has published their full review of the new 2011 X3 xDrive35i, equipped with the N55 3.0L turbocharged engine that is becoming ubiquitous across the BMW lineup.

The all new F25 X3 has been said to have an impressive and refined ride quality, but these videos also show that it’s quite the capable off-roader when needed. Here are clips showing the X3 dealing with mud, ruts, uneven trails, snow, hills, and deep water.
Congrats to vikz as he just picked up his early Chrismas gift, the first reported US 2011 X3 delivered on the site! His initial impression is at the quality of the ride, which he feels is even better than the LCI E92 coupe. Photos inside.
