My girlfriend and I recentley
purchased an 04 X3 2.5i Auto.. We have
had so much fun in our X3 and we have
only had it for a couple months. This
vehicle can do anything you want, and
then some! We love driving it, even
rock, paper, scissoring to see who
will drive. Overall we are in line
with most reviews you will read. It's
a great vehicle, but watch that bottom
line. Although from most measurables
the majority of X3's look and perform
very similar or the same, the prices
are very very different.
The Adaptive Headlight System, The
Panorama Moonroof (both must haves
with this vehicle if you ask us), and
of course Xdrive. Although we did not
purchase the premium package we both
loved BMW assist and the automatic
seat and mirror adjustment that came
with it. But is it worth the $$$ ?
A suspension setting switch that
allows drivers to select comfort or
touring modes. Ride stiffness is a bit
much after a while, and some very
pothole filled roads can make you feel
like a wagon train member. That
stiffness also allows for some major
fun on good roads, so why can't BMW
give us both?
