We have owned our new X3 SAV for almost two
months and have logged 4300 miles on this 3.0 6-
speed manual. This new introduction into the BMW
line-up has more than lived up to our expectations.
The X3 is based along BMW's 3-series and stays
true to form in its ability to provide a more sports-
car like feel to a SUV body. The X3 provides
excellent braking, is very agile, nimble, and
responsive. The 6-speed manual reinforces BMW's
reputation behind their manual transmisions. To
those buyers who are looking for an SUV that will
offer better handling characteristics, braking and
overall performance .. X3 owners will be favorably
impressed with BMW's new introduction.
DVD based integrated navigation system has an
excellent refresh rate and provides many helpful
driving aids to the consumer. The steering wheel
functions are interfaced well for the stereo and
There currently is no indicator lamp if the tailgate is
not securely latched.
