When they say "Ultimate Driving
Machine" they ain't just
whistling "Beer Barrel Polka"! I was
almost dissuaded from buying the X3 by
a partially negative review. So glad I
dismissed it. Took my new X3 from the
showroom on an 800 + mile trek, loving
every minute! The vehicle performed
flawlessly. Stopped once for
breakfast, a few times to gas up...I
don't let it go below 1/2 a tank...a
couple of stretch breaks. Arrived 12
hours later with my usually painful
back feeling great. I expect the
return trip to be every bit as
The ride. The tight, solid feel. The
panoramic moon roof. The great
visibility in all directions. The
comfortable seats. The room. The
XDrive. My wife's actually
complimenting my choice of vehicles.
The sound system. My dealer.
This is not a criticsm. I got the 2.5
because I didn't need the extra power
of the 3.0. When I get my next X3
it'll be with a larger engine...for
the fun of it. I can't think of
anything that would improve this
vehicle. The engineers have produced
a winning design.
