2004 BMW X3 2.5i AWD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 6M)
I've owned Porsche, several SUVs,, Chevys, Jeep, Subaru. Looked at the Beamer cause I loved my BMW K100 motorcycle. Since it is a little pricey, (not overpriced) looked at company cars with less than 9k miles. Also drove Mercedes, Lexus, Audi Toyota etc. Wanted performance AND 4X versatility. Got both in spades. Handles better than some sports cars. Heated leather seats and all the bells and whistles you could hope for.
HUGE Sunroof. Intelligent controls. Tons of storage and I'm still discovering little secrets like the first aid kit I didn't know I had. Auto-tilt down right side mirror for parking. Auto wipers, etc. etc. etc.
steering wheel could tilt down and telescope out more. I use the manual shift to goose it when passing, shouldn't have to.
