The introduction of the third edition of the BMW X3 (G01) is more than just the replacement of an "old" model. Because the new X3 has much more to offer than its predecessor. Everything is new, better, bigger and more beautiful.

BMW tuning specialist AC Schnitzer now provides even more uniqueness with a comprehensive range for the compact SUV.

The AC Schnitzer performance upgrades, including a 36-month assembly guarantee, which increases the output of the X3 xDrive20d from 140 kW/190 hp to 163 kW/222 hp and the 30d version from 195 kW/265 hp to 232 kW/315 hp, ensure that the vehicle stands out from the crowd. Whether with or without increased performance, the engine optics with AC Schnitzer lettering is available for all models.

To keep the X3 by AC Schnitzer agile but down-to-earth, the Aachen engineers rely on a suspension spring set for optimum coordination between sportiness and driving comfort. This lowers the X3 by 20 - 25 mm compared to the standard chassis.

The aerodynamic kit for the new X3 includes striking front spoiler elements (for cars with MTechnik) and a rear roof wing. Both are made of high-quality PU and ensure - especially in combination - improved downforce values on the axles. The AC Schnitzer rear skirt protection foil for the rear apron completes the aerodynamics range.

The various AC Schnitzer tailpipe trims add the finishing touch to the X3. The range includes "Sport Carbon" tailpipes and "Sport" tailpipes in chrome and "Sport".

AC Schnitzer aluminium accessories are available for sports car flair inside: the aluminium cover for the BMW i-Drive system controller, an aluminium pedals and the aluminium keyholder make the X3 equipped in this way finally unmistakable.

If you drive forward in such a special way, you should also have the right set of wheels. The tuning specialists from Aachen also find this and equip the X3 with AC1 alloy wheels in BiColor or Anthracite in 19" or 20". The Type VIII Lightweight Forged Wheels in BiColor are even bigger, even realizing 21" sizes.

The AC Schnitzer range for the new BMW X3 gives BMW fans the agony of choice and extends the unique versatility of the vehicle with even more driving pleasure.
