There is really nothing I could want from my X3,
that it does not offer. It handles roads amazingly,
feels light like a feather in comparison to my mom's
As usual the BMW in-line 6 reigns supreme. The
power is very good with the 3.0, and can take out
any Lexus's or other wannabe SAV's (they will try
and challenge you..) easily...
The NAV is great... Its pre-iDrive but still very very
good by german standards (which are pretty low
since we have MB & Porsche horrific nav's)... Its
great how it rememebers its previous position and
flips up or down when you start the car...
SERVOTRONIC, SERVOTRONIC SERVOTRONIC !!! If
you want to steer with 1 finger get this option... It
makes driving so easy... NAV, Xenon's, Panoramic
I would have liked to have the top of my dash in
black instead of having 3 colors inside my X3
(black, grey & sand beige)... The 05's have fixed
that, but I missed out : (...
My experience with this vehicle has
been outstanding. It is a SAV that
drives and feels like a car. It has
exceptional performance, manuevering
capability and load of safety features.
You just cannot go wrong with this
Xenon lights, heated steering wheel,
hill descent control, rain sensing
wipers, panorama moonroof, side impact
auto unlock of doors when shifting from
drive to park.
Although we generally like the
vehicle's ride, handling, and the
sporty design, the constant trips to
the dealer (once a month for each
month we've owned it) for fixing of
constant defects clearly make this
$45k car a waste of time money.
