BMW X3 3.0

2005 BMW X3 3.0i AWD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I have 1000 miles on the vehicle. Not a single problem til now. The sun roof is gorgeous and unique. Except the black bumper, the exterior design is the best in the segment, if not among all SUVs. I find people checking my car all the time. The performance is great for an SUV. Very confident drive in foul weather, rain sensing wipers and adaptive xenon lights help a lot. I do not have the sport package and I find the suspension sporty and comfortable. The transmission has excellent responses with the sport mode, however downshifts are late with the regular mode. And it is not expensive, I get 18-19 mpg, not bad.
Sunroof, exterior design, adaptive lights, rain sensing wipes, all wheel drive and the whole driving experience during bad weather.
Reprogram the transmission for regular mode. Change the black back bumper.
