Picked up the X3 today after not
being able to get together with the VW
Dealer on a Toureg. More money than
the VW but I think I will really like
the choice. Tested the X5 also. The X3
seemed as comfortable...felt a little
lighter... and more nimble. Feels more
agile than the Toureg. Opted for Met.
Black w/ 6speed manual. FUN!! Quality
seems great, fit and finish perfect,
milage shows about 21.5. Clutch is
touchier than my Jetta TDI but am
getting used to it. The 3.0 doesn't
seem as quick as my wifes A4 with the
1.8 turbo. I'm sure after it loosens
up it will be quicker. Corners, stops,
accelerates on packed snow
flawlessly. So far am lovin' it.
