Martha Stewart picks up her customized BMW X3 – Click above to watch video after the jump

Martha Stewart and her crew descended on BMW's Spartanburg, South Carolina production facility where the automaker builds its X3 crossover, as well as the X5 and X6. Stewart designed and built her own X3 through BMW's "Dream It. Build It. Drive it." program, allowing for more than 70 million unique configurations including a handful of exclusive hues.

When the show airs, viewers are able to enter a contest to win an X3 of their own, however it doesn't appear that Martha is looking to usurp Oprah in the you-get-a-car category of giveaways.

      The only thieves and crooks are the republicans. But your twisted mind and lack of logic and reasoning (,a typical republican) leads you to that conclusion. What was Bush and Cheney ,saints? Get educated before people like you destroy this country with your dumb votes.

      Martha is too full of herself to realize what a joke she has become. What will she be known for? Getting arrested for insider trading and spending time in jail. I wonder if she lost all her rights like most people who go to jail?

      No, you must be confusing them with Tom Delay. Wow you must be worth millions of dollars to be a Republican, either that or a Christian Taliban.

      Another example of Martha stewarts great business sense. Do a show about getting a new car. Therefore a business/production expense. As she did with her Boat. While I am no fan of hers. Her uncanny business sense is interesting. As for the "mantra" of criminal. She made all of $60,000. in her so called "insider" trading.
