OT: X3///M test mule spotted in Brisbane

Hi Guys

I have recently heard there might be a X3///M coming after they have introduced the success of X5///M and X6///M.

Today, I have just spotted the testing mule in Brisbane! Looks like they are just testing in the old body for now - hence without any camouflage. It is interesting to note that they can't even afford professional drivers these days as he is a P-plater.

I had a good look of the car as I drove pass it, and it looks exactly like a normal X3, and it sounds like a normal X3 as well. I guess it is a possibility that they are just testing if the ///M badge will work well on the left hand side instead of the right next to X3.

As many people had complained about the M division is now becoming M for marketing, I won't be surprised this is actually a special edition of ///M where the only change it has is with its badge. As the new X3 had been launched today, it is possibly the Grand Finale for the previous gen X3.

1///M - Valencia Orange
X3 30d - Alpine White

Well spotted. Most would have cynically fallen into the trap of criticising it. You really do know your cars :-)

I assume the big green P plate stands for Prototype.

Very clever those chermans
