Customization is a specialty for the new BMW X3, the vehicle has more than 70 million unique configurations. Martha Stewart designed her X3xDrive35i to have a Sparkling Bronze Metallic exterior, one of three special exterior colors that are only available for BMW X3 custom orders.

Recently, Martha and "The Martha Stewart Show" crew went to Spartanburg, South Carolina to watch the production of her BMW X3. Martha experienced firsthand where BMW makes all BMW X3, X5 and X6 vehicles for customers around the world and interviewed the people who make them. The last stop of the day was the BMW Performance Center where Martha tested out the Ultimate Driving Machine on BMW's own track.

In 2004 BMW introduced a new concept to the market: the small, premium Sports Activity Vehicle with all-road capability and unparalleled driving dynamics. The first generation BMW X3 became a best seller and the new, second generation BMW X3 builds on the success of the original, now with significantly increased space, functionality, efficiency and driving comfort. The new BMW X3 is produced at BMW's Spartanburg, South Carolina plant and will be on showroom floors of US BMW Centers in January 2011.
